The jaw-dropping beauty, Desiree Hartsock, leads the ninth season of “The Bachelorette”. With her gracious smile and mesmerizing brown eyes, Hartsock brought the show to life on Monday night.
With 25 men at her disposal, literally, Desiree Hartsock is introduced to each one, realizing rather quickly whom she likes and dislikes. Desperately seeking the love and affection for Hartsock, each man brought a unique story or act. One man showed up with his toddler, another without a shirt on (revealing his chiseled abs) and two with a wishbone and a penny, hoping for luck.
This isn’t Desiree Hartsock’s first appearance on television. You may recognize her from former ‘Bachelor’ Sean Lowe’s season, as he said goodbye to her after the traditional hometown visits.
She discusses her relationship with Sean Lowe, saying she “was devastated” after his decision to send her home. “But I know that love is out there no matter what. I can only hope my Prince Charming is one of these men,” says Desiree Hartsock during her testimonial.
We briefly learn a few things about Desiree Hartsock during the Monday night premiere. Hartsock grew up living in an apartment with her parents and brother, Nate. She describes her childhood as poor, but happy. Desiree Hartsock says the apartment was so small, her brother Nate slept in the living room.
A few of the men caught Desiree’s eye early on in the ‘Bachelorette’ premiere. One in particular won her affection when he exited the limo with his son, Brody. ‘Bachelorette’ fans, meet Ben, a 28-year-old entrepreneur from Texas.

Desiree Hartsock made it clear what type of man she was not looking for after sending home Jonathan Vollinger. The rather creepy and strange man insisted Hartsock join him in what he created as a “Fantasy Suite” only moments after meeting. “I am not that type of girl,” Des said after dismissing him. “I don’t want to go to a dark room with him.”
With that said, Desiree Hartsock passed out a handful of roses early on to men who she saw potentially winning her over. At the end of the premiere, 5 hearts are broken as they’re sent home, leaving Des 19 men to choose from next episode.
