When it comes to Monday night’s new episode of “The Bachelorette,” we’ve already heard that to a certain extent, there will be problems for both Chris Siegfried and Brooks Forester within the romantic Caribbean. In the case of the former, it’s simply an issue of wanting her to relocate, which is something that the lead on these shows never seems to be particularly willing to do, at least since Jillian Harris. Meanwhile, Brooks’ situation is much more complicated, since it ends up leading into questions about whether or not he really wants to marry her, and if he is ready for the sort of commitment that comes with winning this show.
Now, let’s take a deep breath … and enter the fantasy suite! Yes, tomorrow brings us the return of the show’s most-ridiculous tradition, a room that the producers make out to sound extremely pervy that also typically is out the middle of nowhere so that paparazzi cannot spy on anyone. Thanks to the following details below from ABC’s synopsis, we know that Desiree at least offers him the invite and the key via Chris Harrison … and here’s the rest of the tease:
“Desiree’s first date is with Drew, and the couple set off to explore the island by jeep. Their sightseeing tour takes them along the coastline where they stop at several cliff-side spots, pose for photos and steal kisses. Then they join the locals at a festival, taking part in the celebration. But Desiree steals Drew away to a quiet secret garden where the two can share a private picnic. Drew, totally love struck, tells her that he is ready to propose. There is no doubt they have a special connection. A sudden tropical rain spoils plans for a beachside dinner, but they take shelter. It’s clear that this handsome and sweet guy has captured Desiree’s heart, and she invites him to share some alone time in the fantasy suite. But will this reserved man accept?”
We love how this tries to give you at least a faint amount of doubt over whether or not he is going to say yes, when it really should be obvious to everyone that he is going to. Are we really going to see Drew pass up on the opportunity to spend more time with Desiree, especially in that environment? If you just take away the creepiness of the name, this is somewhat important in that it is a rare opportunity to chat without cameras constantly down your throat, watching your every move.
We’ve ranked all three of the remaining contestants for Desiree’s heart, including our pick for why she may favor one guy over another. Be sure to check it out!
