During Episode 2 of The Bachelorette 2013, Desiree Hartsock goes on a romantic 1-on-1 date in Ojai, California, with Montana-based Bryden Vukasin. There’s no doubt that Bryden and Desiree share a connection — she practically tackles him for a kiss in the hot tub! So we’ve got to wonder: Just how far does Bryden make it in the competition anyway?


Sorry to break the hearts of any diehard BryDes fans, but the military cutie doesn’t make it to the end. He leaves the show during the June 24 episode of Season 9 (Episode 5), but it’s not a traditional elimination — according to Reality Steve, Bryden actually chooses to exit the competition voluntarily, saying he’s just not “feeling it.”

But that’s not all. As it turns out, Bryden has a girl waiting for him back home! His girlfriend Becky Weidow posted an Instagram photo of she and Bryden kissing just days before he left for Bachelorette filming.

For those of you keeping track at home, that brings the total of guys on Desiree’s season who already have girlfriends to TWO (since Brian Jarosinski also had one who appears). Is this a casting error or was all the drama on purpose? We’re not sure, but we do know that at least one guy is here for the “right reasons.” Who does Desiree choose? All your answers are here for the taking.
