This is a pet peeve of mine. I really can’t stand it when ABC takes one of the contestants and makes them the new Bachelor of Bachelorette for the next season. Especially The Bachelorette! I complain about this every season, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. With Sean, this past season, I have to admit, it worked.
Following the same formula ABC announced that Desiree Hartsock would be the Bachelorette for Season 9.
She released the same sappy crap that they all say when the Bachelorette makes them an offer.
“I just can’t even believe I’m here and with the support of everyone, it’s just such a blessing. I just feel so thankful and so grateful…I am, because I could never have imagined,”
Desiree made it to the in four with Sean before she was booted. Rumor has it that she beat out AshLee Frazier, Sarah Herron and Lesley M for the coveted spot.
If you were a fan of the show then you remember that Desiree made it to the at home dates before everything went wrong. Everything looked to be going her way until Sean ran into Desiree’s brother, . Nate and Sean got into it pretty bad. Nate basically said that Sean was a fraud, a playboy and an idiot, all within hours of meeting him. Keeping in mind, Nate isn’t watching the show like we are, he is meeting Sean in real time.
When Nate and Sean sat down to talk Nate went in hard, after Sean he was crazy about his sister. Nate’s reply was,
“You’re crazy about a lot of girls, right? I think you’re a playboy … You’re just having fun with the circumstances, just whatever comes along have fun there, then go to the next one and have fun.”
Sean was able to keep his composure…barely. Later he told People that he was confused and said his interaction with Nate did not influence his decision.
“I’m still confused as to what led her brother to call me a playboy and a fake. He decided to attack my character and integrity and I honestly don’t know what provoked him. Regardless, he doesn’t know me and he sure as hell can’t speak to my integrity … Her brother didn’t affect the way I looked at Des, but it did make me wonder if I could be in the same family as her brother.
Hopefully Nate is done doing damage. If I was Desiree I would make sure I keep my men this season away from. Honestly, Desiree might have gotten booted from the show because of her brother but I also think she was chosen as the Bachelorette because of him as well.
….Plus she looks like Katie Holmes. The new installment of “The Bachelorette” has begun filming for a May premiere.
