Thanks to some brand-new publicity materials released by ABC today, we can officially confirm one thing when it comes to Monday night’s new episode of “The Bachelorette”: Who are going to be the lucky men to have some more individual time with Desiree Hartsock beyond some cocktail party right before the rose ceremony.
The first man is someone that you will see in the video below: Bryden Vukasin. Who knew that a military man could be such a softie? He is the first person we’ve seen have the opportunity to kiss Desiree so far this season, and it of course happens in one of the show’s favorite spots: The dear ol’ hot tub. At this point, could you really expect anything different?
Meanwhile, the other one-on-one date features a man front and center in Brooks Forester who seems to be put in a much more awkward, and much less romantic, scenario in having to wander around and act as though he just married this woman he met just a few days beforehand. Isn’t this awkward? We would not have wanted to be the producers trying to pitch this idea, and explain how it is actually valuable for anything other than creating a couple of crazy moments here and there in the house. Then again, you can make the argument that if Brooks manages to hang in there and deal with something this wacky, he could be great long-term material. If he can handle a fake wedding and being harassed by random people on the street, the he can handle quite a bit.
We know already that this is not the only date that Brooks is going to have this season. For more on that, just check out where he is in the new extended “Bachelorette” preview over at the link here.
