Desiree Hartsock is totally the next Bachelorette.
The fan favorite from the current season of The Bachelor, whom many thought would win Sean Lowe's final rose, was spotted at Santa Monica Pier this week.
With a camera crew. It's Bachelorette promo time!
While nothing is official - look for the official announcement on Monday's Bachelor season finale - Desiree Hartsock definitely feels like a good fit.
Also ... single, fashionable, carefree girl, hair blowing in the breeze, gazing out at the sea as if she's waiting for the man of her dreams to come along?
ABC. Ratings. Gold.
"Des was smiling and was happy. She definitely seemed like she was enjoying herself," an eyewitness to the secret-but-public shoot told E! News.
A second source confirms that Des was filmed looking off into the distance, cotton candy in hand. If that's not season premiere B-roll, we don't know what is.
The runner-up among the two finalists, Catherine Giudici and Lindsay Yenter, would also appear to be a strong candidate, but it looks like Des won out.
Who will win the final rose Monday night? Check out The Bachelor spoilers now if you dare, then tell us below what you think of the lovely Ms. Hartsock.
UPDATE, 3/11/13: It's confirmed! On the After the Final Rose special Monday, the cat was finally let out of the bag. It's official, Desiree's the pick!
Will Desiree make a great Bachelorette?
