The web has been abuzz with The Bachelorette spoilers this month, as fans Desiree Hartsock prepares for what could be a rocky lead-up to the finale.

While in the past, The Bachelor or The Bachelorette spoilers have centered around which suitor the star would pick, this year looks a bit different.

Heading into the August 5 season-ender, most of the uncertainty surrounding Desiree Hartsock relates to whether she ends up engaged or heartbroken.

Brooks Forester has been the favorite all season long, both among those offering spoilers and on screen. Des has even admitted she's in love.

So what's the big twist keeping this from being a foregone conclusion?

Even the producers themselves are weighing in on the unusual nature of this particular "journey" for love, and hinting that it may not end smoothly.

Misleading teases that don't come to fruition or are underwhelming in the end are standard for this show, but you don't often hear ones like this:

“All I can say is that you will be shocked by how this ends.”

Straight from show-runner Mike Fleiss himself, to EW.

Yes, we realize that every single week promises THE MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY EVER, so you can take that with a boulder of salt.

That said, the shot-caller adds that Hartsock's season's ending “doesn't make sense in some ways,” and “It comes out of left field in other ways.”

The two-part finale is “the weirdest ending we've ever had, for sure,” and while he won't say if the parties involves are happy, "it sure is interesting to watch.”

All season long, The Bachelorette spoilers from Reality Steve, the thorn in Fless' side for so many years, indicate that Desiree Hartsock does get engaged.

However, many suspect that something pretty big happens in the next two episodes that no one will see coming, and that could render his spoilers moot.

By all accounts, he says, Drew Kenney is eliminated in third place, setting up a Chris Siegfried vs. Brooks Forester finale one week from Monday.

On the season finale, Brooks allegedly proposes and Des accepts, but even the king of The Bachelorette spoilers is spotty on these next two weeks.

However it ends, we can pretty much guarantee that there will be unforeseen conflict, and that it involves Brooks. The question is how, and why?

In its preview for this coming Monday, ABC indicates that as Desiree is on overnight dates with Drew and Chris, Brooks is in the U.S. with his family.

This is unheard of on the show, as contestants typically have no time with family before or after hometown dates, which aired two episodes ago.

Brooks, the network says in its press release, is “torn between his strong feelings for Desiree when he is with her and insecurities when he is not.”

A heart-to-heart with his mother and sister help inspire his confidence and “with the reassurance he needs, [Brooks] boards the plane for Antigua.”

The drama doesn't end there, though, as Brooks Forester and Chris Harrison have their own heart-to-heart and “some shocking news is shared.”

Desiree and Brooks later talk this through, which leads to “one of the most explosive, dramatic, emotional moments in Bachelorette history.”

UPDATE, 7/29: Here's a new twist to the already-complicated situation:

Nate Hartsock, the outspoken brother of Desiree who made a scene on The Bachelor and claims to know the outcome of this season as well, Tweeted:

"I cannot tell you who wins but Reality Steve is wrong."

Reality Steve says he stands by his sources and spoilers, so here we have two opposing statements from two guys who do not enjoy being proven wrong.

UPDATE, 7/30: Well, that was certainly something last night.

After two terrific dates with Chris and Drew, Brooks crushes Des with the revelation that he's not ready to commit to her so seriously at this time.

Awkward exchanges were had. Tears flowed like never before.

Then we faded to black, unheard of in The Bachelorette world. No rose ceremony, no elimination, no clue how this is going to play out next week.

Bad as it looks, this was set up in such a way that it leaves plenty of time for Brooks to come around and sweep Des off her feet at the very end.

From the beginning, Brooks has been the guy in her mind.

Could this be a different way of "packaging" the season to play up a finale in which there really was no tough choice as long as Brooks was on board?

Very possible. It's hard to see Des falling back on Chris or Drew after this, isn't it? Is Brooks really gone for good after all that? Difficult to envision.

If you watch the end of last night's episode (above, just before the promo for next week begins) she basically says she can't love Chris or Drew enough.

While there's been plenty of talk of The Bachelorette spoilers being "wrong" this season in light of these revelations, be sure to keep in mind this:

  1. There's one episode - the final, dramatic conclusion - still to go
  2. The spoilers aren't inconsistent with what we've seen so far

If Brooks was her top pick all along, as we've been inclined to believe, nothing that happened last night makes a compelling case for Drew or Chris.

Meanwhile, a Brooks win actually seems more likely considering.

Des lamented, even, that those two "amazing, unreal guys" love her, but "I just can’t love them as much ... and that’s not what they deserve. Honestly, for me, it’s over.”

They can't possibly win, can they? If she simply carried on in Brooks' absence and got engaged to one or the other, the cliffhanger makes no sense.

So what's the point of next week? Either two more heartbreaking breakups and Des leaving as single as the day she started the show, or Brooks returns.

That, or we're in for mother of all surprises come next Monday. Stay tuned.

UPDATE, 8/5: Well ... that was certainly a shocking ending, as advertised!

Drew Kenney was eliminated. Chris Siegfried proposed and Desiree Hartsock accepted. No Brooks Forester return. No heartbreaking, bitter tumult.

Did anyone out there see that ending coming? Anyone at all?

Honestly, how the heck did ABC pull this thing off all along?

From Reality Steve's spoilers to Des' confessionals to the editing of the entire season, we were certainly led to believe this season was all about Brooks.

"Wow. Uhhhh, didn't see that coming," he wrote moments ago on Twitter. "No idea what happened. Just means ill have to get it right next season."

There it is. The Bachelorette spoilers guru has been stumped.

Was there deliberate misdirection on ABC's part to plant fake spoilers out there? Or just a terrific job of keeping the actual ending a secret for months?

Whatever the explanation, so well played by the network. Wow.

On the After the Final Rose special, Brooks Forester returned ... to talk about feelings. That was it. Des and Chris are together and happy, end of story.

Oh, and Juan Pablo Galavis will be The Bachelor, incidentally.

Now that all this is said and done, you tell us, THGers:

Did Desiree make the right decision with Chris?


ilove pic so beautiful

I'm so glad she picked Chris! She's moving to Seattle this week, & they will be together forever! Chris & Des! So perfect. She really dodged a bullet with Brooks. He is one strange dude


I never really saw that she and Brooks were a match. I thought Zak would actually be really great for her! Then my choice would be Chris. I originally picked Drew from the 1st night and really like him. But I think Zak would give Des the exciting and wonderful life she is looking for. Since Zak didn't end up in the final 3, I'm hoping he is the next Bachelor!

Carol parks

One more day! I can't wait! UGH! A little over 24 hours and I will be glued to the T.V. No Interruptions! No Phone, just 3 hours of Bliss! I can't wait!!


my friend's ex-wife makes $81/hour on the laptop. She has been without a job for ten months but last month her pay check was $20003 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more WWW.ZEN45.COM


Wouldn't it be great if Desiree accepts a proposal and the wedding is held live on TV Monday, August 5, 2013?


Brooks was testing Des's love. She declared her love for him in the face of his denial. If you set something free and they come back to you, they are yours. If Brooks comes back to Des of his own free will, it's forever. She was strong enough to let him go and will reap the rewards.


I think it's disgusting how Brooks went to that point and just realized he didn't love her? How horrible for her to be humiliated in front of millions of people! Brooks got caught up in the attention he was receiving!


Oh, the irony. She's mad at Brooks for adoring her but not being in love with her, while she is in the same exact shoes...she adores both Drew and Chris, but isn't in love with them. My prediction--Brooks returns and they agree to date like normal people...

@ stevieq

It's Everywhere, all magazines etc, Brooks & her are engaged & happy


Des is a very sweet nice young woman. I however believe that she is more in love with 'the thought of being in love' with Brookes, rather than actually being "in love" with him. Many ladies would luv to be with a good looking and wonderfully kind gentleman such as Chris, and someone that deserves and wants to live with a great guy on the water in Seattle should be with him, NOT Des. She is acting like an unappreciative flake when it comes to Chris. Drew is a genuine dreamboat, cute and sincere; once again is deserving of a woman who won't take him for granted, and longs for an honest and adorable as a puppy dog kind of fellow. I think that Zak would have been her best bet; and remain convinced that James would have given her a desperately needed run for her proverbial money ! The fun that oftentimes is needed is part of the experience that ultimately forces one to grow up and to become mature makes one an adult, and the right decision and outcome are a product of this. There are often many heartbreaks on the road to ending up with your "the one." Why do people think that broken hearts are only going to happen to other people and not to them ? !

@ Kea'

I also wanted to add that Des stated numerous times that she did not find Brookes' body as "hot" as Chris' or Drew's. HOW ON EARTH COULD YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE SO "IN LOVE" WITH SOMEONE WHEN YOU DON'T FIND THEIR BODY H O T !!! ... like he can't 'pick up' on that vibe '?' !

@ Kea'

What I don't understand is how can you fall in love with someone in what seems like about a two to three month period, but yet your not with them all the time unless there is part of the show they don't show us, but just from what we see on the episodes she can't be that in love when you haven't really spent hardly any time with the person!? I could see where Brook's was coming from, it wasn't enough time to propose marriage at the end of this, at least not from what we have seen. So I really think he likes her but like he said, when he's not with her on the show, he finds himself not really thinking about being with her, he likes it when he is but I don't think he's had enough time with her to say he really loves her, and what she has said to Chris and Drew is no different than what is going on with her and Brook's, I noticed that when her and Drew was doing all the kissing that she kinda pulled back from him a couple of times, but then when she was with Chris she didn't, she played it out to him as if he was the one. So no blame really can go on Brook's for doing what he done because she is doing the same to Chris and Drew, and I don't see her ending up with either one because that would mean they were second best, which is no way to start out a relationship! So either Brook's will realize that he wants her or I think she will go home brokenhearted, and I don't think that even if he realized he wanted her that he would be ready to propose, so I'm guessing that she will go home brokenhearted. I don't even want to watch it Monday because I hate to see people hurt, and however it pans out, three people are going to be hurt from what I'm seeing!! With these shows they need to make it more than a 3 month ordeal to make it seem right.

It actually does have a happy ending as she is engaged and that show ended 3 months ago. She stated it seems like a year ago, but she is happily engaged, & planning her wedding. Most reports say it is Brooks. He never left, & immediately regretted his actions as he finds out he really does love her.
