Is “Bachelorette” Desiree Hartsock engaged and who does she end up with, Chris or Brooks?
Fans were shocked to see Brooks leave without even checking out the Fantasy Suite on the overnight dates episode. Viewers were left to wondering if Brooks would return to the final rose ceremony or leave her with Chris as her only choice.
Poor Chris doesn’t have a chance in this game of reality love. Although it’s rumored that he picks out an engagement ring for Des, spoilers indicate that she’ll reject his proposal when her Knight-in-shiny-hair, Brooks Forester returns to Antigua to profess his love for Desiree.
The love he wasn’t quite feeling when he got cold feet and left. And *gasp* — he left before he could do a horizontal mambo test-drive with Des in the suite where fantasies (sometimes) come true.
On August 5, 2013, the “Bachelorette” season finale will air on ABC and after that, it looks like Brooks will get plenty of opportunity to create a Fantasy Suite re-do with Desiree.
Reality Steve holds firm on his prediction that Brooks and Desiree are engaged and have been dating since the show stopped filming a few months ago.

So, did ABC just hype the whole “Brooks leaves Des” thing because the ratings for this season’s show absolutely sucked?
For sure. There is no doubt in my mind that the producers asked Brooks to leave to make the ending a little more dramatic. It certainly gives this sleeper of a season a much needed jolt.
But what’s not certain is if Brooks really wants to be with Desiree or if it’s a setup to create a happy ending.
Now what? Brooks and Des will ride off on a giraffe or something goofy like that and we’ll see them on the cover of every gossip magazine for the next few weeks.
And, of course, we’ll see stories of their potential break-up, including rumors that Brooks cheated on Desiree and broke her heart after she sold her soul to ABC for a shiny ring and a questionable relationship.
