Who doesn't love to watch strangers meet, get whisked off to exotic locales, fall in love and find fame get married? It's a tried and true formula, and it almost always works…the fifteen minutes of fame, of course–not the marriage.
ABC's new Bachelorette is hoping that the show's odds are in her favor (or not in her favor…whichever makes her more likely to find a guy she actually likes) after failing to find love with BachelorSean Lowe. Desiree Hartsock, like all the other true believers before her, still thinks that the process can work. Sure.
Speaking of finding love, the shows' host, the dapper Chris Harrison, has apparently done just that. And not with me. Curses!
According to ABC's press release,Desiree, 27, longs to find a love like the one her parents share. "Married for 35 years, they've always supported and appreciated one another. Their values helped guide Desiree to become an industrious, passionate, and creative woman who is working hard to make her dreams come true."
"This spunky, athletic, and artistic woman is eagerly looking for a life filled with spontaneity, love, and laughter. And Desiree is positive, after falling in love [with Sean Lowe] on theBachelor, that she can find her soul mate on the Bachelorette."

Two reasons: I much prefer the Bachelorette over the Bachelor. A house full of laid-back men is much more entertaining to me than a house full of catty women. Also, Emily Maynard made my head pound, so I feel gypped out of a season.
In a recent interview with People, Desiree talks about her parent's marriage, shares what she looks for in a partner, and touches on that very first night.
Desiree longs to find a love like the one her parents share. "My parents have been together for 40 years and married for 35," Desiree shares. "My dad has her back no matter what, and she's so affectionate to him. They act like they are 16."

Desiree Hartsock's season of the Bachelorette premieres in one month. In real time, Desiree has narrowed her pool of possible husbands down to three, though Reality Steve has already chosen the winner.
"From what I'm hearing, Desiree's choice in the end will not surprise anyone," Steve tweeted on April 17. "She's apparently known from early on who she liked the most." Steve went on to name the guy earlier this week; however, he also predicted a less than rosy future for Desiree.
Reality Steve's expert opinion is – you might want to sit down for this! – the guy that Desiree most likely chooses doesn't seem to be ready for – are you sitting down? – marriage! GASP! NO! SAY IT ISN'T SO!
ABC released the Desiree's promo photos for the season. Nice Photoshop! She is flashing a big smile and snuggling some roses, of course. Hopefully they're been de-thorned. Desiree's season has been given the vomit-inducing slogan "Her time to dream." And she apparently has some major struggles choosing the one, of course.
"I just can't even believe I'm here. And with the support of everyone? It's just such a blessing," Desireegushed about being The Bachelorette. "I could have never imagined signing up for The Bachelor and having this opportunity. I'm just overcome with happiness."
Bad news for fans of the Bachelor Pad. The Bachelor Pad, the place where Bachelor and Bachelorette castoffs go to catch diseases 15 more minutes of fame and a second chance at love to win $250,000, will not air this summer.
Mike Fleiss, the mastermind behind all things Bachelor, nonchalantly tweeted the news. I'm kind of crushed, as Bachelor Pad is trashy summer TV at its finest, and I definitely need more of an explanation!
Reality Steve, the spoiler king behind all things Bachelor, weighed in on the issue. "Not surprised," Reality Steve tweeted. "Ratings good but didn't "fit" with ABC/Disney image."
Sean will be partnering with Peta Murgatroyd. He announced he's already living in L.A. and practicing in his dancing shoes, but with all the grinding he's doing against Peta I don't know when he's going to find the time to actually be engaged to another woman! Aaahhh… it's the Bachelor right?!

As always, it's two hours of engaging video recaps, heartfelt bachelorette retells, and passionate audience reactions all centered around Sean Lowe. Errr, when I say engaging, heartfelt, and passionate, I really mean repetitive, catty, and obnoxious.
