It's official! The Bachelor Season 17 fan favorite Desiree Hartsock is ABC's new Bachelorette, and her season of the hit reality series will premiere Monday, May 20th! It's no surprise that this gal next door was chosen for The Bachelorette Season 9 –– she's adorable, genuine, and wants to find love more than we want to find diet pizza that still tastes like regular pizza.

Now it's time for Desiree to take charge of her dating life and start calling the shots! She'll be deflowering (taking their roses away, duh) dudes left and right once The Bachelorette begins, and her main goal? "To travel the world with that special someone whom she’ll run home to see every day."

Yep, looks like we're in for a round-the-world adventure when The Bachelorette returns to the small screen, which makes sense considering that Des has a history of traveling with her family. This sweetheart moved around throughout her childhood before settling in Colorado, and then packed her bags and jetted off to California to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles!

So, what did Des do with her degree? She designs bridal gowns, and eventually wants to own her own boutique! But more than anything, this gal wants to "find a love like the one her parents share." Des's mom and pops have been married for 35 years, so whomever she gives her final rose to on The Bachelorette better be in it for the long haul! Will you watch Desiree's season? Spill it in the comments.
