Desiree Hartsock's brother Nate is at it again, offering candid assessments of her love life. This time, he says his sis "settled" for fiance Chris Siegfried.

Nate Hartsock famously ruffled feathers last year when Desiree appeared on The Bachelor, bluntly taking his sibling and suitor Sean Lowe to task.

Now he's turned his sights on Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried - who he admittedly likes, but was not her first choice by any stretch of the imagination.

"Desiree went on the show because she wanted to get married so badly and she wanted the family and to have kids," Nate told Life & Style magazine.

"Obviously Chris wasn’t her first choice. I think it’s obvious she settled for him."

The Bachelorette stars Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried have been (publicly) engaged all of a week, and fans still aren't totally sold on them as a couple.

They're certainly both doing their best to change that.

Reports that they were moving in together immediately after the finale were true. They made sure everyone knew about the big move on social media!

The future Mrs. Siegfried is now a Seattle resident.

She wrote, along with pics of a going-away party: "On the road again! ;) @ChrisRSiegfried  #newchapter #roadtrips #mylove #goodbyeCali #helloSeattle."

Chris Harrison isn't being a hater. Just realistic.

When The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock accepted Chris Siegfried's proposal Monday on the season finale, the pair began envisioning wedding bells.

The show's host isn't sure they will be heard.

“I mean, let's be honest. What are the odds?" Harrison said of the pair's prospects. "Most relationships don't make it down the aisle. They just don't."

“We've been on a very good run lately with Ashley [Hebert] and J.P. [Rosenbaum] and I'm fully convinced Sean [Lowe] and Catherine [Giudici] will."

“But married? I don't know. The odds are no, but you never know.”

The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock may have pined for Brooks Forester once, but she has more positive things to say about her new fiance, Chris Siegfried.

That's putting it mildly.

Asked what she loves about Chris, she said, "Everything. I mean, honestly. [He's] supportive, manly, romantic. I really think he's an overall well-rounded person."

"He's so good at everything. Really. I can't think of one bad thing to say about him."

It was a turbulent season marked by surprising exits, shady characters and botched spoilers, but The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock is now engaged.

And she couldn't be happier about her final rose recipient, Chris Siegfried.

"I truly believe things happen for a reason," she says. "I have no regrets."

The duo had an interesting approach for dealing with the season as it aired.

Not wanting to reopen old wounds, Chris Siegfried revealed in an interview this week that he did not watch any of The Bachelorette scenes that he wasn't in.

He hasn't even seen her epic Brooks Forester breakup, in other words.

Desiree Hartsock cannot stop gushing about Chris Siegfried.

Monday night, on the ninth season finale of The Bachelorette, he put a ring on it and erased any notion that she was still hung up on Brooks Forester.

While it shocked Reality Steve and anyone who read The Bachelorette spoilers or paid any attention to the whole season, there was no doubt in her mind.

"I was given a rare and beautiful opportunity to find true and lasting love - and I found it with Chris," she reflects. "The moments we shared will last a lifetime."

"To have Chris meet my family was one of the happiest days of my life. I didn't just introduce my family to Chris - I introduced them to the man of my dreams."

"The proposal from Chris was one of the defining moments of my life."

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried got engaged on last night's Bachelorette season finale, to the surprise of nearly every fan of the ABC reality hit.

Regardless of whether you read Bachelorette spoilers or not, it was hard to see Desiree bouncing back from her breakup with Brooks Forester. At all.

But she did, and said that her feelings for Brooks blinded her to the fact that Mr. Right was right in front of her all this time. And he is Chris Siegfried.

Brooks left Des so shell-shocked that a proposal from Chris or Drew Kenney seemed extremely unlikely. If anything, many predicted a Brooks return.

Didn't happen.

Drew was sent home rather abruptly, but Des felt something different with Chris, and gradually she came around to the idea of marrying him, too.

Will it happen? Can a man seen by many as her second choice truly become her first - for life? Share your predictions in the comments and vote below:

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried: Will it last?

The Bachelorette season finale is upon us at last, THGers.

As advertised all summer, the tail end of the season has been like no other before it, with three finalists still in the running and so many questions unanswered.

Will Brooks Forester be back? Will Desiree Hartsock take him back? Will she leave single and crushed, or was last week's cliffhanger just clever editing?

If you don't want to wait, you can always check out The Bachelorette spoilers on THG, but either way, we think you'll want to stick around for this.

Check out our LIVE recap of the season finale below!

Bachelorette Final 2/3

We're still in Antigua with Desiree casually hanging out on a porch overlooking exotic waters. She's heartbroken over Brooks' shocking revelation last week.

She sits down with Chris Harrison for a chat and immediately begins to cry. Her lips are really glossy though? 

Thought #1: Would they really give us two hours of Des crying into a microphone? Thought #2: Would people buy that if they made it an album?

Chris seems to suggest that Des should pick either Chris or Drew since she can't have Brooks. Minus 25. She sees positives to both of them. 

Her heart is broken but her spirit isn't, so she's going to go ahead and spend time with the remaining two bachelors. Just in case. Maybe. 

Chris tells her she's being brave. She doesn't have a clue what to do.

For The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock, it all comes down to this.

A season full of turmoil comes to a conclusion tonight on ABC, with so much still up in the air. Will Brooks be back? Will Des leave single and heartbroken?

Will Chris and Drew find out about last week? Do they have any shot?

Here's a look at what The Bachelorette spoilers indicate about this evening's finale, why they could be wrong, and why they're probably not wrong ...

First, a brief rundown on last week's drama: After two fabulous dates with Chris and Drew, Brooks CRUSHED Des with the revelation that he's not ready.

Awkwardness and tears ensued like never before on this show.

Which is certainly saying something. As is the fact that, unheard of in The Bachelorette universe, there was no rose ceremony, no elimination ... nothing.

All three finalists are still technically in the mix ... or are they?

There's never been a season quite like this one, which has left fans clueless, up in arms and clamoring for The Bachelorette spoilers heading into the finale.

In part one of the two-part, five-hour season-ender, leading lady Desiree Hartsock was awkwardly, painfully dumped by her first choice, Brooks Forester.

She has two guys left, but having basically admitted that her feelings for Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfried aren't on that same level, what will she do now?

ABC has not released a single clip beyond Desiree talking to host Chris Harrison to talk about Brooks' exit. How the heck are they going to fill 2-3 hours?

Harrison teases that “There's nothing typical about this finale.”

No kidding. But does Brooks Forester come back or what?
