Desiree Hartsock's upcoming season of The Bachelorette promises to be a romantic roller coaster ride, complete with bouts of nausea and terrified screaming.  We can't wait! But also on the agenda? Moments of extreme awkwardness.

According to Bachelorette spoiler source, Reality Steve, Desiree takes a trip to Awkward City during her second Rose Ceremony, when she comes face-to-face with her old roommate's ex boyfriend. Way to fail, Bachelorette casting department.

Naturally, Desiree recognizes her gal pal's sexy-exy, Robert "Bobby" Graham, but dude has zero clue who she is — despite the fact that she repeatedly asks him if they know each other! Um, how dare he not remember the gorgeous glamazon that is Desiree? Then again, lady friend has grown out her bangs, so maybe we'll give this traitor a break.

For those of you who haven't memorized every contestants name (we're really beginning to doubt your commitment, btw) Bobby is the guy who says he invented sign twirling. Cool story, dude! We invented Post-Its. Anyway, despite his attention-grabbing career path, Bobby doesn't exactly make a lasting impression on Des. Our theory? Des must've walked in on him kissing her roommate back in the day and been thoroughly unimpressed by his tonsil hockey skills.
