As fans pore over The Bachelorette spoilers and try to make sense of what transpired two nights ago, one thing is very clear for Brooks Forester:

He regretted what played out on part one of the season finale. Immediately.

Brooks Forester and Desiree

Millions of viewers cringed as Brooks Forester crushed leading lady Desiree Hartsock's hopes and dreams Monday night, leading to anguish in Antigua.

Despite his desire to be madly in love with her, he just... wasn't. Awkward pauses followed. Tears ensued. Then more tears. Then they parted ways.

But is it over for good? Despite his actions Monday, don't write Brooks off yet.

While careful not to reveal The Bachelorette spoilers concerning next Monday's finale, Desiree Hartsock is speaking out about last night's events.

In a shocking twist, Brooks Forester vaguely, awkwardly dumped her in an epic breakup that resulted in endless tears and consumed an hour of TV.

Truly, it is the most surprising ending to The Bachelorette we've seen, just as the producers promised. Heading into next week, so many questions linger.

Is Brooks gone for good? Is Des done for good after this rejection?

What about Chris and Drew? Do either stand a chance? And how will they fill two hours? We'll find out in Monday's conclusion of this two-part finale.

For now, let's hear what Hartsock had to say about last night:

Tonight's the night! Errr, sort of.

Previews have shown all three remaining men, and Des herself, in tears, with The Bachelorette spoilers promising a shocking ending!

Just which of these eligible bachelors will Desiree Hartsock choose as her quest for love reaches part one of a "shocking" season-ender?

Let's find out in THG's +/- recap!

Des said "fairy tale." Minus 4. Recap of the entire season after we just recapped the entire season last week during the Men Tell All episode. Minus 10.

More of Chris' awful poetry. Minus 2. More of Drew who, let's be clear, doesn't exactly scream straight male in this "for all the right reasons." Minus 5. 

And then there's Brooks. Desiree's feelings for him are "set apart" from her feelings for the other guys. Everything about this opening says that she chooses him. Everything.

Except the fact that he's apparently unsure of the fact that he's expected to propose to her at the end of this. So that's not good. (Or it's smart and very good because it means he's serious? Who knows.)

The romantic fate of The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock has been the topic of great debate (and The Bachelorette spoilers) in recent days.

Throughout the season, there's been talk of a surprising, shocking ending - and the new Us cover story certainly hints at such a development:

Desiree Hartsock: REJECTED!

According to the magazine, Desiree Hartsock has been flat-out rejected by the lucky man she hoped to marry during her season of the show.

Brooks Forester, Chris Siegfried and Drew Kenney are all still in the running heading into the two-part finale, but all the talk has been about Brooks.

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?

It's not every day you have all your ex-boyfriends in one room ready to put you on the spot, but that's part of the job for Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock.

With the season finale looming on August 5 (see The Bachelorette spoilers for the latest scoop), Des looks back on a wild summer and looks ahead.

Here's what she writes about her experiences with the Men Tell All special:

Des

"I was anxious, nervous and excited," the brunette blogs. "It was an emotional journey and I have nothing but fond memories ... of most of them.

"Walking out on that stage brought mixed emotions. Seeing Zak W., Juan Pablo, and Michael, I wanted to run over and hug them," Desiree adds.

"Seeing James and Ben, I wanted to turn and run."

Following last week's hometown visits and elimination of Zak Waddell, it's time for The Bachelorette season 9 men to tell all before the season's shocking finale!

Do James and Ben have unfinished business? Will Zak get the closure he wants? Will we get any hints as to which gentleman Desiree chose, if she chose one at all?

The Bachelorette spoilers are abuzz with rumors of both heartbreak and engagement and we've got only two weeks to go before we reach the end (or the beginning) of Desiree Hartsock's fairy tale. Let's hear what the men had to say now!

Chris Harrison introduces the special and only drops 1 "for the right reasons" and none "fairy tales." Plus 3.

Des and Chris crashed some at-home Bachelorette viewing parties. It's...kind of weird. Des drops the words "fairy tale" and isn't at all worried or shocked or scared at how well the women at the girl's nights know her. Not freaked out at all. 

She teams up with J.P. and Ashley to crash some parties in New York. And then the Mesnicks show up. Trista's looking...older. 

There have been 26 seasons of this franchise. Twenty. Six. That's some dedication to ratings love. Plus 8.

Desiree Hartsock is closing in on get her fairy-tale ending, and according to The Bachelorette spoilers we've read, the season finale may not surprise viewers.

Or will it?

Desiree is in fact engaged, some reports indicate, and given that she's already sharing that she's in love with Brooks Forester, he seems like the obvious pick.

There's something unusual about the editing approach this season, however, beginning with her openness about that fact, and the overall scheduling.

The Men Tell All special airs next week, a week earlier than normal, essentially setting up a two-part finale after that with three guys still remaining.

The Bachelorette final three are set and off to the overnight dates after the somewhat surprising elimination of Zak Waddell on Monday's episode.

So who's it gonna be?

If you've read The Bachelorette spoilers at all this season, you know she's been really into one guy from the onset. Did last night change any of that?

Brooks Forester is the man Des said she was in love with prior to the hometown dates, but Chris Siegfried and Drew Kenney both helped their chances.

Enough to pull an upset over Brooks? That's the million-dollar question.

The rumor mill is swirling as to who Desiree Hartsock picks on The Bachelorette. Spoilers up until now have been accurate ... but what about going forward?

The field of 25 has been narrowed to just four, as tonight's hometown dates featured Brooks Forester, Chris Siegfried, Drew Kenney and Zak Waddell.

The favorite coming in? Brooks, in many people's minds.

  • Bachelorette 4
  • Des Hartsock Photograph

But did he come away with a rose tonight? Who got sent home? And who - if anyone - do The Bachelorette spoilers say Desiree gets engaged to in the finale?

There have been reports that Des will pull a Brad Womack and pick no one, perhaps because Brooks, who she's in love with is not on the same page.

In any case, he got a rose tonight, along with ...
