We’re sure plenty of you out there have pondered the ol’ “boxers or briefs?” question about virtually every dude who ever walked through the door at Bachelor Mansion. (We know this because we pretty much spend all day picturing Juan Pablo Galavis in his underwear) But while we haven’t quite nailed down the definitive answer for Desiree Hartsock’s #1 heartbreaker, Brooks Forester, we can tell you at least one thing about the pompadoured paramour’s panties: They are probably superhero themed.

Now that Brooks is released from the ABC cone of silence, he is full of all sorts of non sequitur Twitter updates, including this confession: “As a kid I wore superhero underwear. I still do, but I used to, too.” Good to know, Brooksy!

We have a couple questions. though. First: Marvel Comics or DC? And do you wear them under your pants or — in true, old school superhero fashion — over tights? Inquiring minds want to know.

Since Brooks forewent that whole Fantasy Suite situation for what we shall heretofore call the Dumping Gazebo, we may never be able to confirm whether he prefers his Batman underoos in boxer or brief form. Guess we’ll just have to keep careful watch over his Twitter for the next update.
