Desiree Hartsock‘s journey as “The Bachelorette” is just under two weeks away from premiering on ABC. She spoke with the press Wednesday (May 15) about her time on the show — though she won’t dish about the outcome.
“The journey was incredibly emotional and it was really surprising
throughout, but unfortunately I can’t comment on [the outcome] at this time,” says Desiree. “I’m glad that I did decide to do the show. I was satisfied with my
decisions throughout, I followed and trusted my heart.”
Night one of her season starts off with a bang, including a rather awkward situation involving a Fantasy Suite.
“It was very uncomfortable, but I kind of took it like I would in my day-to-day life — I disregarded his behavior and didn’t stand for it,” Desiree tells Zap2it. But that was just a minor blip on the radar, because she was “surprised by how many amazing men there were.”
Desiree adds that it’s an experience she had to really consider, but it ultimately worked out well as a personal journey.
“It is very emotional and it’s a personal journey, so I needed to make sure I wanted to share that with the world,” says Desiree. “The feelings that do develop are very real … Yes, there’s gonna be tears. But I really wanted to go on this show with all of my emotions being shown.”
“The Bachelorette” premieres Monday, May 27 on ABC.
