Part one of the two-part finale included plenty of heartbreak stemming from a shocking twist.
Desiree was left reeling on Monday’s episode after Brooks Forester, considered the front-runner for her affections, revealed that he just wasn’t feeling it – and decided to leave.
So, now it’s down to Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfried. “Drew is such a loving and caring man and he is truly ready to commit and start a family,” Hartsock wrote in her Bachelorette blog Tuesday.
“Chris almost seemed too good to be true,” she added. “The great thing about our relationship is that we connected on all levels and that made hanging out a lot of fun.”
But her heartbreak was still on Hartsock’s mind. “My dates with Chris and Drew were so wonderful, but Brooks’s departure really threw me for a loop,” she wrote. “I didn’t know what to do and I seriously considered going home and calling it all quits.”
