On last night’s two hour edition of ABC’s The Bachelorette, the show finally perked up and brought the drama, when Brooks Forester (we love that name too, B&B take note!) broke the heart of this season’s bachelorette, Des Hartstock, setting the stage for an awkward second part season finale next week!
What made this so compelling is that this showed the realistic side, or as realistic as a reality show can get, when the competition is about dating, love, and commitment! It was apparent that during the moments where Brooke tried to explain himself to Des that this was going to be very sad, especially when Des admitted that Brooks was the guy she was in love with from the others two guys still in contention! She even came forth with the words, “I love you” to him!
Couple this with the fact that Des had to keep her feelings for Brooks under wraps till the finale, or it would be game over for the season, if she had declared it any earlier! But when all it said and done, we had Brooks in tears, Des in tears walking away from him and going to sit by herself on the docks, while he got driven away in a limo! Des always seems to never get the man of her dreams. It was very dramatic and touching.
Now that begs the question, where does the show go now, since Des later fessed up to the camera that she now wanted to go home? But what about the two men still left in the running, Chris and Drew, who have no idea what just happened? According to an interview today on GMA with The Bachelorette host, Chris Harrison, the other two gents were secluded from each other during the final romantic getaway dates, and have no idea what transpired!
So if you caught last night’s The Bachelorette, were you moved to tears by Brooks breaking Des heart? Was it better than a soap opera break-up? What do you think will happen next week on the second part of the finale? Will Brooks return with an ephiphany? Will Des choose Chris or Drew? Or will she just say none of the above and go on with her life without a reality show beau? Share your thoughts!
