On Season 17 of The Bachelor, America was shocked by Sean Lowe's decision to send Desiree Hartsock home after their hometown date. Since their first date, it was clear that there was an undeniable connection between them, but Sean and Des could not reignite that original spark after her brother, Nathan, told Sean, "I think you're just a playboy."
After one of the most heartbreaking goodbyes in Bachelor history, can Desiree love after Sean? Audiences will soon find out this Memorial Day weekend if their fan-favorite will find her prince charming.
Desiree has come from humble beginnings, but the 35-year-marriage of her parents' proves that love is all you need. As an aspiring bridal gown designer, it is time for Des to find her own happy ending.
On the Bachelorette season premiere, Desiree will be welcomed to her new home in Malibu by the one and only, Chris Harrison, and prepare to meet her 25 suitors. While the fans of Bachelor Nation have seen it all, there is always one contender that awes the audience after exiting the limo door, and The Bachelorette Season 9 will be no exception.
A handsome and fit oil rig worker offers his abs to a blushing Desiree, and another greets her in a full suit of medieval armor. Is the man behind the mask taking the fairy tale too far or will the gesture earn him a rose? Perhaps, even the first impression rose.
With only 19 roses up for grabs, the men will stop at nothing to get Desiree's attention. A former Venezuelan soccer player shows off his athleticism, while the abs bachelor takes an exhibitionist's approach by skinny dipping in the pool.
With romantic trips to Germany, Spain and the Island of Madeira, Desiree's journey to find love is sure to be a whirlwind for both Des and the audience that loves her. It's Desiree's turn to take control of her own destiny and find her knight in shining armor on this season of The Bachelorette.
