Look back at the reality franchise's romances (as reported at the time in our TV Recaps) to see how they ended up
The Bachelorette (season 9)
Finale aired Aug. 5, 2013
Bachelorette: Desiree Hartsock
Potential grooms: Chris Sigfried and Drew Kenney
Kristen Baldwin wrote:
On Drew: ''Drew might not be the most masculine guy, and he might rival Pauly D in the hair product use and abuse department, but it's truly moving to see what a loving, devoted brother he is to Melissa.''
On Chris: ''Chris goes in for the kill: 'I don't want to make decisions for me anymore. I want to make decisions with you for us, and our future together. And I want to be that rock that doesn't break for you.' At this point, if you found yourself screaming at the TV, Who cares if he's your second choice? MARRY HIM!, you would not be alone.''
The Choice: ''After a tearful, smoochy hug, Chris and Des break apart, and he gets back to the business at hand. 'I have something to say, too.... It's not just a yes or a no. It's a, Do you want to grow old together? Do you want to share your experiences with me together? Can I share mine with you? Do you want to start a family? Do you want to have kids?' And with that, the poet drops to one knee. 'So, Desiree Eileen Hartsock, I want to be your first, I want to be your last. Will you marry me?' And she LOVES it. 'Yes, a thousand times!' cries Desiree, pulling her ball player into a joyful, tearful embrace.''
What Happened Next: After the show ended, Desiree moved to Seattle to be with Chris. The couple will attend the wedding of fellow Bachelor lovers Sean Lowe and Catherine Guidici on Jan. 26, 2014, and will continue planning their own wedding.
