"The Bachelorette" comes to a close with the first of a two-part series finale airing tonight. Desiree Hartsock has to choose between Brooks, Drew, and Chris and promises that the episodes will be full of the drama "Bachelorette" viewers have come to expect.
"I really want everyone to watch it for themselves and see truly what happens," Hartsock told The Hollywood Reporter. "I mean it is emotional, it's dramatic, but at the same time there's going to be beauty in it all, so it's definitely one to watch."
Hartsock's season has been full of twists and turns, with contestants choosing to leave the show, being caught lying about their relationships, and being confronted about their plans for the future. She came on the show hoping to find love, but after this season, one may wonder if Hartsock actually does.
Brooks has never said that he loved Hartsock, which makes him the only one not to say those words out loud. It was a serious contention with Hartsock, who told host Chris Harrison that she was falling in love with him after several episodes of the show. Brooks never uttered those words back, and it could be possible that in the finale, he still does not, as we see him and Hartsock both in tears.
Drew, meanwhile, appears to have fallen head-over-heels for Hartsock and has made no effort to hide his feelings. He has told Hartsock on several occasions that he is falling in love with her, and that love grows every time they're together. Could he be the man of her dreams?
Chris has been relatively quiet throughout the season and could be the surprise winner of the show. Yet many reality show "experts" have said that Hartsock ultimately chooses between Drew and Brooks, and could, in fact, end up with Brooks.
"The Bachelorette" finale will air tonight on ABC and conclude next Monday night.
