First Part of Bachelorette Finale Leaves Everyone Really, Really Bummed


This week’s portion of the season 9 finale of the Bachelorette did not disappoint – much as the wise Chris Harrison said it wouldn’t – however, it did leave those with hope that Des would be happy a little unsure of themselves.

Brookes left the show.

But before going back over that, it’s important to remember the parts of the show that came before it.

Antigua: Another place perfect for love

The Bachelorette and her suitors met up in Antigua, Guatemala – another one of the many places that cast visited that made falling in love a breeze.

When discussing her potential fiancees, Des seemed very hopeful about the future. She reiterated how much she loved her connection with the awkward Chris and how much she loved locking lips with Drew. However, Brooks was clearly the frontrunner, someone she believed was truly one of a kind.

“Brooks is unlike anyone I have ever known…After the date in Madeira, I felt comfortable enough to let myself say that I loved him.” said Des.

Which is why it might be best to let yourself down into a comfortable chair, put on some soothing music, and grab a drink.

Because Brooks, at this point, still had not told Des that he loved her. This wasn’t something that bothered her, but it is worth mentioning.

Drew, however, has had no problem declaring that every time he sees her, he is continually more sure that she is “the one”. And their drive around the island, limbo session, and seaside dinner, Drew could have only been more sure of himself.

So sure of himself, in fact, that he asked the camera crew to leave while they were talking on the beach.

Flashback: a More Innocent but Equally Uncertain Time

“The idea of popping the question to her at the end makes me really uncomfortable” said Brooks to him mom and sister back in the States. When pressed, he continued to demonstrate his uncertainty about their love. Something that made his sister wisely suggest he may not be (okay, absolutely isn’t) ready to marry her.
An announcement that could have ruined her date with Chris, which she is on at that very same moment.

At dinner with Chris, the couple is focusing on the future. Chris’ job that he loves in Seattle maybe a problem for the California-native. However, by the end Des was more open to the idea.

The Beginning of the End

Even after a steamy poetry reading the night before, Des admitted to the world that she loved Brooks the next day. She missed him when he wasn’t there. Unfortunately, Brooks is unable to pinpoint the reason he is not “crazy in love” with our poor Bachelorette.

Upon explaining this to Chris, things start to take a turn for the worst. Told that he needs to be a man and tell Des himself that she is not the love of his life, Brooks begins to look a little nervous. Especially as his date was in the not so very distant future. A moment that Des was very excited for.

Unfortunately, just a few minutes into the date the couple found a private spot on the pier and Brooks broke the news.

“I want to be madly in love with you”

Bummer. Huge, huge bummer. Because after that, Des began to cry and is likely to continue to do so well into the next episode. However, for at least the first few minutes, Brooks did hold her before they began the slow trudge back up the beach.

After a few more awkward moments, the two of them went to cry alone. Brooks angrily declared that day as “one of the worst of his life”. And Des made her most shocking confession yet:

“For me, it’s over.”
