Does Chris Siegfried have a shot at really winning “The Bachelorette”? If he does, we will probably find out courtesy of tonight’s episode, when he tells Desiree Hartsock that Los Angeles is not part of his career path, and he needs to be in Seattle in order to continue to do what he’s doing. This is an instant deal-breaker if Desiree fancies herself a Hollywood personality moving forward, but if she is malleable, he could last a while longer.
What we know for now is that Chris is the choice of another person who knows both Desiree and this franchise very, very well at this point in Ali Fedotowsky. Remember, she has taped a few segments with her already, and the two parties have bonded very well given that they are each from the Los Angeles area. Speaking to E! News, she explains why she still believes that Chris is the guy for her, despite the near-mountain of evidence out there that Brooks is the favorite to win:
“I’ve recently become close with Desiree [Hartsock] and she’s such a sweet girl. When I bring up that Chris, there’s some kind of sparkle in her.”
Ali also openly campaigned in the interview for Juan Pablo Galavis to be the next “Bachelor,” saying that some of the friends that she watches the show with frequently swoon all over him. (We know already, based on the women wearing the shirts during “The Men Tell All,” that they are far from the only ones.) It’s still much too early to really know for sure who ABC will pick, and we still think some of it could depend on if Drew Kenney is picked and how he comes off in these final two weeks of the show.
For now, do you think that Chris is the best choice for the winner, and Juan Pablo for the next “Bachelor”? As always, we want to hear from you! We have some more teasers from Monday’s episode, including more trouble for Brooks, over at the link here.
