Desiree Hartsock is gearing up for the premiere of The Bachelorette's Season 9, where she'll travel the world with a fleet of hunky gents, all of whom are dying to declare their undying love. Swoon!
Chances are Des and her luscious brunette locks will be taking up plenty of your time when The Bachelorette premieres on May 27th, but who is this gorgeous gal? Check out these ten must-know factoids about Desiree in order to prepare for her non-stop romantic season of The Bachelorette!
10. She's From Colorado
Desiree was born on July 1 1986 in the small town of Northglenn, Colorado, though she eventually moved to southern California to pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
9. She Designs Wedding Gowns
Desiree works as a production assistant at Serenity Bridal, and even designed her very own dress for the first rose ceremony during her stint on The Bachelor. Basically she has the best wardrobe ever –– and duh, it's all custom-fitted!
8. She Made It To Sean Lowe's Final Four
Desiree managed to capture Sean Lowe's heart during The Bachelor Season 17, but she was deflowered after hometown dates because her brother, Nate, was more than a little rude to Sean. Hopefully Nate will be on his best behavior during The Bachelorette!
7. She's Friends With The Man Upstairs
Desiree and her family are devout Christians (Jesus is her homeboy), so chances are she'll pick a guy who shares her religious beliefs. From the looks of Des's love shack, she'll have plenty of hunks to choose from!
6. She's Used To Roughing It
Desiree's family didn't have a lot of money while she was growing up, and she spent much of her childhood roughing it. Girlfriend even spent a few of her formative years living in a tent! Do you think she'll take her harem of hotties camping?
5. She's A Great Friend
Desiree has a vibrant personality, so it's no surprise that this gal has no trouble making friends. "I have the roommate/friend that is like the older sister I never had, the friend who lights up the room with her smile and is the voice of my thoughts, and quite a few other friends that are miles away but with just a phone call seems like time never passed," she writes in her blog. What a great gal!
4. She's a Poet
Desiree writes poetry in her free time (she's a creative spirit, y'all), and she even penned a few gems on her personal blog –– which is tragically no longer in existence. Fingers crossed that she writes some inspirational haikus about dating 24 guys at once.
3. She's Crafty
We got a sneak peek into Desiree's apartment when she invited Sean Lowe over during hometown dates, and her pad was full of projects! Desiree is a great artist, and we have a feeling she'll make her men get crafty on The Bachelorette.
2. She's A Prankster
Desiree has an A+ sense of humor, and even played a hilarious prank on Sean during hometowns, when she hired an actor to be her ex-boyfriend. We can't wait to see what kind of LOLs she brings to the table on The Bachelorette!
1. She's Super Sporty
Desiree loves being outdoorsy and active whenever she gets a chance, which is probably how she manages to stay so toned. And why she spends her waking hours in Lululemon.
Make sure to watch Desiree's season of The Bachelorette when it premieres Monday, May 27th on ABC!
