Breaking up is hard to do, so every time Desiree Hartsock has to let one of her Bachelorette 2013 man morsels go, we cry, cry, cry in our lonely hearts. In Portugal, it was bye-bye-bye to Michael “Beatem and Beetus” Garofola, and we’re still reeling from the loss. But bad news bears: the first cut isn’t always the deepest.

On Season 9 Episode 8, Des gives the boys home court advantage, knock-knock-knockin’ on heavenly doors as she heads to their towns. And while we’re mostly just excited to see Zak Waddell’s closet (are there just, like, a Doug number of navy blue polo shirts in there?!), it’s not all going to be light-hearted fun.


Besides Zak, she’ll also be stopping by Chris Siegfried’s family home in McMinnville, Oregon, Brooks Forester’s Salt Lake City pad, and Drew Kenney’s shrine to his beauty in Scottsdale, Arizona. But just like most of our Monday nights, it’s going to end in tears, as she’ll send one unlucky man, uh, home.

Which of her boyfriends is about to be all unbreak my heart, say you love me again? According to Reality Steve, it’s Zak Waddell who will have to undo the hurt that Des causes when she walks out his door and walks out of his life.

While RS originally reported that Drew was the one who was going to be playing the Zack Attack cover of “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” on repeat, he has since corrected his intel. Lucky for ABC’s ratings, we’ll get one last chance to see Drew Kenney shirtless when he heads to Antigua with Chris, Brooks, and Desiree “All the Break Up Songs” Hartsock.

Are you surprised that Zak is going to have to journal alone now? Bummed? Write a poem about it and send it to 1234 Lonely Hearts Lane. We’ll add it to our collection.
