Could Desiree Hartsock's hometown dates have gone any better? Sure, she had to reject Zak Waddell and it was the saddest thing ever (him throwing that ring out of the limo = us face-planting into a pool of tears), but ultimately Des had a blast. Not only did she enjoy meeting the families of her feral man-pack, she fell even more in love!
"The relationships are now at a make-it-or-break-it stage and I can see my life with any of the three men left," Des wrote in her People Bachelorette Blog. "After that hometown rose ceremony, I was 100 percent officially in love and feeling good."
Aww, we're so happy that Des has found love! She doesn’t specify in her post who the object of her attention is, which is surprising since she can’t stop herself from telling Chris Harrison how much she loves Brooks Forester and says she even wants him to propose. That would be great and all if Brooks seemed to return her feelings, but you know. We'll take what we can get.
Then again, we're slightly worried that Des' happy-go-lucky attitude will crash and burn after she and her hotties head to Antigua. Need we remind you of the promo in which Des is frolicking around the sand like "kumbaya, my lord!" and then suddenly crying all over Saint Christopher about how she wants to go home? (Chris, by the way, has his own doubts about Brooks’ intentions.)
Who knows what actually made Des break into a crying-jag, but we fear her feel-good feelings will be extinguished thanks to Brooks and his lack of love.
In the words of Elton John circa The Lion King, "Can you feel the love tonight, Brooks?" because Desiree wants you to be the Simba to her Nala.
