Desiree Hartsock Is The Next ‘Bachelorette’
A source close to Sean EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com that “Desiree is confirmed to be the next Bachelorette.”
And Sean was rooting for her all along!
“Although it didn’t work out with us, she’ll always have a place in my heart because she is such a lovable person,” Sean said to PEOPLE on March 5. “I know Des has moved on, and I’m hoping she gets a second chance at love – maybe on the next season of The Bachelorette? She would definitely get my vote.”
Des, 26, was up against the other former contestants Lesley Murphy, AshLee Frazier and Sean’s runner up, but she is reigning victorious!
An ABC spokesperson EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com on Feb. 26 that “No one has been picked yet.” Filming of The Bachelorette‘s new season begins in mid-March, so ABC obviously were under pressure to pick someone.
And they made the perfect choice!
