Does Desiree Hartsock's quest for love end with her choosing no one?
The Bachelorette spoilers have given a pretty strong indication of who the favorite is, but that doesn't mean she won't end up right where she started.
Asked recently if the guy Desiree chooses is a better fit for her than Bachelor Sean Lowe, franchise host Chris Harrison paused and then mused:
"Um, well, it depends on if she ends up with anybody."
Hence the rumor that she picks no one in the end.
"We haven't said anything about how the season ends," Harrison says, "but I can tell you that Des is in for an emotional, wild ride before we get to the end."
"It's definitely not what everybody is going to think."
"It's a tough one. I liked going through it with her, and not to speak for everybody, but I think she represents the normal, average woman very well."
"I think she's incredibly relatable."
On last night's episode, she trimmed the field once again, but many questions - and characters - remain as the season starts to kick into high gear.
As a further sign of a possibly shocking Bachelorette season finale, Harrison hints that viewers might not be completely thrilled with all of Des' choices.
"Desiree doesn't try to worry about what everybody is going to think," he says. "She just shows her true emotions. She doesn't try to be cool at all."
"I really like that about her."
What do you think? Do you find Desiree Hartsock to be as relatable and likable as Chris does? And who do you think - if anyone - she'll pick in the end?
