Will Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried Have an ABC Wedding Special?
For all the grief Bachelorette and Bachelor producers get from the media and viewers who say you can’t find true love on television, they still have some shining examples that say otherwise — from Trista and Ryan Sutter to Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. The one thing these couples all have in common: An ABC-funded wedding, which gets its own primetime special. But what about Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried?
Andi Dorfman’s predecessor and her fiancé have been together for a little over a year now, and the cute Seattle-based duo have been open about their wedding plans since their official engagement party in February 2014. At the time, sources were saying that they may get hitched before the end of the year, but just recently Chris admitted to a fan on Twitter that they don’t have a wedding date picked out yet.
All of this vague wedding talk from the couple had us wondering if maybe they were holding out for the go-ahead from the network about a special. But a recent post from Reality Steve says otherwise. The spoiler monger has said in the past that he didn’t think Des and Chris would be offered the coveted on-screen nuptials. Then, this week, he answered a fan’s inquiry about why he didn’t see it happening (“I’m just hearing they’re not going to”), though he doesn’t know why exactly.
Say it isn’t so! Of course, all this gossip may pan out to be false, and perhaps ABC is just focused on the three major network reality shows they produced this year (welcome, Bachelor in Paradise). Either way, we do hope that they will reconsider, perhaps for 2015? Desiree and Chris deserve it, and the viewers deserve another Bachelor Nation reunion that isn’t the equivalent of adult spring break.
