The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock says she has a good idea what she's after - and what she wants to avoid - when her quest for love kicks off May 27.

"I like someone who's spontaneous, adventurous and enjoys every aspect of life," says the 26-year-old, who vied for Sean Lowe's heart on The Bachelor.

"And, not to get too serious, but someone who could be my best friend and a support system, someone who I can see as the father of my kids."

She does not have to look far for inspiration.

"My parents have been together 40 years and married for 35," she says. "My dad has her back no matter what. She's so affectionate to him. They act like they are 16."

She captured America's heart. He broke hers.

So it begins again. Desiree Hartsock, who came close to winning Sean Lowe's final rose on The Bachelor, will be the one doling them out this summer.

ABC has released its first promos for The Bachelorette, premiering Monday, May 27. You won't believe this, but the brunette beauty is living a fairy tale:

In the much-anticipated premiere, Desiree Hartsock is introduced to some good-looking, confident fellas, including one dressed up as a knight in shining armor.

Good one. She's also asked if she will accept ... THESE ABS!?!

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.

Sorry, Bachelor Nation. You'll have to wait an extra seven days for the return of that cutie Desiree Hartsock, as ABC has pushed back the start of her season.

The network will now air a new scripted series called Motive after Dancing With the Stars on May 20, when The Bachelorette was supposed to premiere.


Motive will move to its regular Thursday home on May 23 (Thursday), but will receive a boost from DWTS on its premiere date (or so the network notes).

The Bachelorette, meanwhile, is now scheduled to premiere at 8 p.m. on May 27, with spurned Sean Lowe suitor Desiree Hartsock handing out the roses.

You excited to see her in the role?

Desiree Hartsock may not have won The Bachelor, but the fourth-place finisher will be handing out the roses as the new Bachelorette starting May 20.

The cutie said on The Bachelor: After The Final Rose special that she is “ready and open” to “to meet the man of her dreams” come this summer.

Despite the fact that she made it far and became a fan favorite, we still don't know that much about her. So here are some fun Desiree Hartsock facts:

1. She is a bridal stylist and a designer in Los Angeles. That will certainly come in handy if, as she hopes, she'll be wearing her own before too long!

2. She designed her own dress for the opening rose ceremony when she wowed Sean Lowe. Who is now engaged to Catherine Giudici, but still!

"I just can't even believe I'm here. It's just such a blessing," she said. "I could never have imagined signing up for The Bachelor and having this opportunity."

Overwhelmed by the crowd's standing ovation. Desiree had tears in her eyes. "If you're crying now, we're in for a long season together," Chris Harrison joked.

Desiree Hartsock certainly looked the part of The Bachelorette last night.

While the runner-up on next week's finale (see The Bachelor spoilers to learn who that is) would seem to be the frontrunner for the job, it could be Des' to lose.

On Monday's The Bachelor: Women Tell All Special, Hartsock not only looked great, but sounded like she was reading from the Bachelorette-to-be playbook.

Pretty and likable without trying too hard, and recounting her heartbreak with sincerity without seeming too crushed, the fan favorite further burnished her credentials.

Ah, the annual Women Tell All filler episode special. As always, it didn't offer much in the way of insight (or The Bachelor spoilers), but boy was it entertaining.

Not only did Tierra LiCausi and her "sparkle" bring the drama, there were other notable interviews and a memorable exchange between Sean and AshLee.

What did we learn - good and bad - from the Women Tell All?

Come along below for the official THG +/- Bachelor recap!

Tierra surprisingly showed up in an attempt to explain herself, although the more she talked, the deeper she dug herself into the hole of her own making.

Chris Harrison (who gets a Plus 50 for his moderation of events like this) asked Tierra if she had regrets or wanted to apologize for anything at all.

Her response?
