What a roller coaster ride! We didn’t see a happy ending for our girl Desiree Hartsock in the Season 9 Finale after Brooks Forester departed, but in the end, the clouds parted and there was Chris Siegfried, waiting with a gorgeous ring and the promise to love her forever as Matt White sang  “Love and Affection” in the background. The last man standing, Chris asked for her hand in marriage and she gladly accepted. Mazel!

We're so happy Des is happy, but we have to admit we're a little dazed. How did she go from head over heels for Brooks to ready for marriage with Chris in such a short span of time? Perhaps feeling that someone loves her as much as she loves him, perhaps for the first time in her life, helped Desiree to realize what she felt for Chris was more real than her love for Brooks? We're glad her self-worth was enough to give her heart to someone who could give his in return.

You know who wasn't surprised? Brooks! "I saw the way you looked at him," he said. "It was pretty apparent."
