The new Bachelorette has been revealed. ABC’s tapped Desire Hartsock as the lovely lady who men will be competing to win over on the next season of The Bachelorette. Hartsock was devastated when Bachelor Sean Lowe sent her home after they seemed to have made a connection. Following the hometown dates, Sean sent Desiree packing – a decision she said was a huge mistake. Now she’ll be the one who decides who stays and who goes as she tries to make a romantic connection on the ninth season of The Bachelorette.
Season nine will debut on Monday, May 20, 2013 at 9pm (it’ll move to 8pm on May 27th).
Details on Desiree Hartsock [Courtesy of ABC]:
Desiree, 26, moved numerous times with her family as a youth and eventually settled in Colorado. After her high school graduation, she moved to California where she attended Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FITM) in Los Angeles. Although her family was of modest means, they were rich in love. Their values helped guide Desiree to become an industrious, passionate and creative woman who loves living in California and working hard to make her dreams come true. She is currently an operations manager at a bridal salon and a bridal stylist, but that hasn’t stopped her for shooting for the stars. She is confident that in the future she will be a bridal gown designer who owns her own boutique. But more than anything, Desiree’s ultimate dream is to find a love like the one her parents share. Married for 35 years, but together for 40, they’ve always supported and appreciated one another. It’s that cherished model of marriage that led Desiree to be on The Bachelor, where she fell in love with Sean.
This spunky, athletic and artistic woman is eagerly looking for a life filled with spontaneity, love and laughter. She hopes someday to travel the world with that special someone whom she’ll run home to see every day. And she is positive, after falling in love on The Bachelor, that she can find her soul mate on The Bachelorette.
