“What do you want and is this salvageable?” Chris says of his sit-down with Des to discuss her options post-Brooks. “Or do we just pack up our stuff and go home? That was a very real option because at this point, what do you do?”
It’s a question the series has never faced in its ten years on air. Sure, people have left the show on their own, but a break has never come this late in the season, nor when the Bachelor(ette) is in so deep.
“We’ve had people leave, but not where she’s literally ready to accept a proposal, and so it was devastating,” Chris said. “And also on the flip side of the show, it’s like, okay, now what? We’re a week away so now what do we do, how do we finish this?”
One option: flee.
“At the end of the day, we’re left up to human behavior and this choice of free will, so if she wants to bolt and she’s done, we’re done.”
Calling it a wrap and packing up the plane would be such a let down (and an option we don’t think happens). Could Brooks possibly change his mind and pull a U-ey on the tarmac? Does Des realize she actually loves Chris and/or Drew? Tell us what you think happens below!
