It’s sisters before misters for Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock! At least, that’s her explanation for eliminating fan favorite Robert “Bobby” Graham during the June 3 episode.

“Sorry ladies! Robert aka Liam Hemsworth’s brother dated my friend before so couldn’t keep him around. #thebachelorette #friendsfirst,” she tweeted after last night’s Rose Ceremony as fans flooded the interwebs asking for an explanation.

We should have known something was up when Des passed on giving Bobby who really does look like a lost Hemsworth a date during the second episode. The marketing guru who helped invent “sign spinning” had his head turned by Des’ decision. Maybe he didn’t recall dating her roommate? Probably not a great sign (pun so intended).

Also out last night were Bikram yoga guru Will Reese and handsomely forgettable Nick Mucci. Both seemed like nice guys who just got lost in the crowd during Des’ first group date. For what it’s worth, we also probably wouldn’t have shone during an impromptu rap session with Soulja Boy. We bet you five bucks that next week the group does hot yoga.

We’ll miss looking at Bobby and hearing his riveting tales of working the corner, but we totally get why Des did what she did. Girls gotta stick together!
