Welcome to Portugal, the luckiest country ever. Why, you ask? Because brunette bombshell, Desiree Hartsock, and her fleet of erotic escorts are visiting this great nation during The Bachelorette Season 9. And it sounds like she’s going to get a little help from her friends.

Let the shirtless mating ritual begin!

Desiree eliminated one of her remaining five contestants while in Portugal, a heartbreaking decision that girlfriend just couldn't face on her own. Annnnd, enter Catherine Giudici, Desiree's sista-friend from Sean Lowe's season of The Bachelor, who ended up winning Sean's final rose!

Bachelor spoiler king Reality Steve recently reported that Lesley Murphy would visit Des in Portugal, but now he's revealed that Catherine (and her fellow contestant Jackie Parr) also flew across the world for a Bachelorette vacation. Presumably to partake in some girl talk (or "girl chat" as Steve says), and help Desiree decide which of her knights in shining armor to send packing.

This is a groundbreaking move on the part of Chris Harrison and his Bachelor cohorts. Sure, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. taught Sean Lowe how to make out on The Bachelor, but Catherine just won Sean's season. We can't wait to see this gal now that she's lucky in love –– and we're sure she'll have some valuable lessons to teach Des.

Good to know that these glam girls still get along despite the fact that they were competing for the same hunk. After all, there's no such thing as sloppy seconds in Bachelor Nation. Or thirds. Or fourths.
