Desiree Hartsock is close to wrapping her season of The Bachelorette, and on one episode, she receives advice from a person who knows the process well.

Her former Bachelor romance rival, who won Sean Lowe's heart over Des, showed up in Portugal to advise Desiree on who to pick. What a good sport.

Catherine Guidici, 26, is currently happily engaged to Sean, 29, who sent home Desiree, 26, after the hometown dates on The Bachelor this winter.

There is clearly no bad blood, however, as Des asked Cat - along with Lesley Murphy and Jackie Parr - to help choose her hometown date finalists.

Tierra LiCausi must have been busy.

The last 12 months have produced some real losers for ABC’s primetime Monday nights. I refer specifically to their reality dating-mating shows The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor Pad which at times have come dangerously close to being nothing more than televised prostitution. Thank God! Bachelor Pad has been cancelled, hopefully forever. But to continue ... Ben Flajnik, Emily Maynard, and Sean Lowe were dismal disappointments, and all for the same single reason … the degree of immaturity they each displayed on camera. Now comes Desiree Hartsock. Her season #9 run of The Bachelorette has not even begun airing yet; and already the spoilers indicate she will duplicate the same disappointment as her predecessors, and for the same reason … profound immaturity. Des was America’s sweetheart during Sean Lowe’s run as The Bachelor. She acquired the reputation of being the proverbial “nice sweet girl next door.” She also acquired the reputation of having strong religious convictions and high moral standards. She can quote the Bible at will. These are qualities that would tend to indicate adult maturity. It has even been speculated that her maturity level was the real reason that boyish Sean dumped her ... that she just wasn't the playmate he was looking for. But alas … the spoilers unanimously agree that it doesn’t turn out that way. They report that Des fell for the first man she laid eyes on, and who has no plans for marriage in his foreseeable future. Therefore the object of her infatuation is just another jock with great abs. In sum … it’s just another case of the Freshman Cheerleader getting moon-eyed over the Captain of the varsity football team. The viewers get the same lackluster finish and a profound disappointment in The Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock. It begins to sound that whatever religious scruples she had got sacrificed to be on the show. It is past time ABC stood back and regrouped their strategy regarding these two shows. Surely somebody in the network think tank understands it isn't wise to play to a childish audience during primetime hours ... unless of course, you're deliberately trying to run off the viewers. The first suggestion is to raise the minimum age for participation to at least 35, in order to get some maturity and appeal to a wider audience.
