Desiree Hartsock finally got her happy ending as she said yes to Chris Siegfried on The Bachelorette
. Many were pleased with Desiree's choice but there were also some fans who felt that she made a hasty decision to settle with Chris as she was still not over Brooks at the time. Find out what host Chris Harrison, season 6 Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, season 5 Bachelorette Jillian Harris and Desiree herself have to say about it.
"I don't think last night's proposal was romantic. I thought it was sad. Blame it on the editing with the whole Brooks fiasco or maybe it wasn't editing -- maybe it was real life, but I think everyone and their dog expected Brooks to come back. They saw how her heart was with him, and then in the end, she chose Chris. I felt this episode, she was sad, she was healing, and her heart was broken. And maybe, just maybe, her statement was true: That Chris was there all along and he is what she really needed, but I don't think she was over Brooks and that makes all of this a tricky situation. It's a rushed situation and all you have is your instinct. At that moment, she could have truly realized that Chris was the one, or she could have just needed the support he as able to give her to get over Brooks. It's not my place to say which it is, but there was a part of me that was sad for her last night."
"I never truly saw in Des and Brooks what Des apparently saw and felt. I don't know what it was, but I just never really felt it between the two of them. That's not to say I was right or that I knew best, but it was just an observation... I love Chris and Des together and I think they make a beautiful couple. I think they complement each other very well."
"I've said since the second episode, in this same blog for E! Online, that Chris would be the one in the end. Honestly, the editing of the show is what put that thought in my head. So I'm happy to finally say that the spoilers were wrong and I'm glad they were. I think Desiree and Chris are such a sweet couple and I couldn't be happier for them! I never say this after a season of this show, but I truly believe that this relationship is real and could last! I've grown to respect and adore Desiree over the past few months and I know she is in love. I can just tell."
"As Chris got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, I had no doubts in my mind that I wanted to marry this man. Saying yes and telling him I loved him for the first time was so surreal and a feeling I could never duplicate. I was overcome with joy and happiness. The ring is the most stunning thing I have ever seen but the meaning behind it is even more beautiful."
Do you think Desiree made the right choice?
