Is Brooks Forester ready for marriage on The Bachelorette? And do any of his three remaining competitors stand a better chance with Desiree Hartsock?

The hometown dates (or The Bachelorette spoilers) will reveal all!

At least, that’s what Desiree is hoping for in Monday’s all-new episode, where she puts her quality time with each member of the final four’s family to good use:

Before the two ladies in Brooks’ life – Des and his mom – sit down for some girl talk, the elder Forester takes note of the duo’s interactions at dinner.

The way she gazes upon Brooks Forester is "with a love look…it was very tender to see that happening," she says … his mom, that is. About Des.


Things get serious, however, when Brooks’ mom asks Desiree Hartsock flat-out if she could see herself marrying and having a family with her son.

"I see the potential in that," Desiree says, but "The main thing I was wondering was if he was ready for marriage because he has mentioned that he wasn’t sure."

Ooooooh. Do you think Brooks is ready for marriage? Is he the one for Desiree Hartsock? Is all of this doubt about his commitment level just misdirection?

Tell us what you think in the comments, and take a look at the preview for next week’s episode of The Bachelorette above to see what you think:
