For those of you who haven’t been watching, the bachelorette in question is Desiree Hartsock, a cast-off from Sean Lowe’s Bachelor season. She’s a beautiful girl, very sweet, gorgeous bod — and super boring. Her suitors are also super boring. And most of them don’t seem that into her. We had Ben and James, who made it pretty clear that they were on the show in the hopes of becoming the next bachelor, and we had Bryden who actually interrupted a date Desiree was on to announce that he was leaving, because he didn’t really feel a connection with her. Yeah, she basically got dumped. And then the poor guy she was on a date with had to console her. Oh, and we can’t forget the weird-ass rap video everyone made with Soulja Boy.
We’re down to 4 guys now but Desiree has made it clear that she’s “in love with Brooks!” (People magazine.) Brooks is also my favorite. He’s so hipster. Compared to the other guys. And as far as being in love, she hasn’t said that about any of the other guys. But Brooks doesn’t seem nearly as into her as she is into him. He’s the only one who didn’t tell her that he loved her, and to the cameras he revealed that he isn’t in love with her — yet. He hopes to be soon.
Oh and here’s another thing about Brooks — 18 months ago, apparently while in a monogamous relationship — the 26 year-old made out with a 51 year-old woman while on vacation in Puerto Rico. Reality Steve has the photos, and the story.
From Reality Steve:
I was sent an email by someone who told me that her and her family have gone down to Puerto Rico every New Year Eve for the last 11 years, and that back in late December of 2011 (so, 18 months ago), her mother had met a new “friend.” She proceeded to tell me that her mother had quite the time with her new “friend” that night and she had proof of it. Well, that “friend” was Brooks Forester, who was in Puerto Rico for New Year’s Eve that year with his best friend, Tyler Burton. You can see Tyler’s Twitter feed right here where he subtly, and not so subtly, likes talking about Brooks and posting Vine videos. So she passed the pictures along from that night taken at the El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico.
And of the girlfriend back home?
[…] at the time these pictures were taken, Brooks was dating this girl from Utah named Jennifer Hawkins. […] I was told by friends of Jennifer’s that Brooks would no doubt deny (if he ever even acknowledges it- highly doubtful) that he and Jennifer weren’t exclusive at the time he went to Puerto Rico, but it’d be a lie. Jennifer absolutely thought they were exclusive and even though we are 18 months removed from New Year’s Eve in Puerto Rico and they have since broken up, I’m guessing she probably wouldn’t be too thrilled knowing that’s what Brooks was doing on his vacation with a woman almost twice his age while he and Jennifer were together.
Fabulous. Honestly, would this be a story if this guy 1. wasn’t top pick for “winning” The Bachelorette and 2. wasn’t making out with a woman twice his age? Of course not. What of it? If you’re curious about whether or not this affected Desiree’s feelings for him…you can read more of Steve’s blog. He has spoilers for the whole damn show.
More photos of Brooks making out with his older lady (and a photo of his friend Tyler posing with her) are below. ENJOY!!
