(Beware, there's evil spoilers in this post *growl*)
And what a journey this freaking TV show was. I'm sighing repeatedly in my head over this season. To be honest with you, I wasn't totally dedicated to this show the whole time. I was kind of still in a Sean-and-Catherine haze, I couldn't quite see my way out of it into the Desiree light. But I had to get out of it eventually, because come on, Des is the cutest thing ever! (Not that I don't still Twitter stalk Sean Lowe if we're being totally honest here)
I wasn't in love with any of the guys right off the bat... I didn't really like any of them. But Des was just too fabulous in her baby blue convertible for me not to watch the show. I had always kind of liked Drew, I thought he was cute and he would be good for her. I was kind of rooting for him the whole season. To be honest, they kind of lost me with the whole Mikey drama, I think it was made a way bigger deal than it needed to be. Just send that jerk home Des, if she has to question him that much, obviously she's not going to end up choosing him, let's just be real. I was happy that he went home and I was really happy with who ended up in the finale! Chris, Drew, and Brooks. Chris was from Seattle so I didn't not like him, but from what I saw he kind of just got by on the show. I mean, I don't think she was ever in love with him. He was fine. I really liked Drew, she seemed to really have a connection with him and really, he's cute!
But Brooks... oh Brooks. Takin a deep breath. Watching a helpless girl sob for 45 minutes straight with only short commercial breaks really takes a toll on your emotions. When the credits started rolling we all kind of just sat there like "Oh." Actually, that word sums up the whole Finale Part 1. Oh.
I mean, there's not really anyone to blame. If Brooks didn't love her, it's good that he left as soon as he knew it. And Des, poor thing, you can't really blame her for having feelings. I just feel like ABC could have filled the hour and a half run time with something a little more than just Des crying hysterically. And that concludes my thoughts on Finale P1.
This pretty much sums it up
I mean, she's obviously not going to choose Drew or Chris now. If she did that would be a kinda awkward relationship. She said that she was in love with Brooks, that she had known that he was the one for a while, and that she secretly didn't want to go on dates with anyone else because she wanted to "save her heart for him". COME ON. You can't just move past that. I'm predicting Part 2 to be just talking it out with Chris Harrison (love that guy), talking about her future, that sort of deal. The only possible plot twist in my mind would be Brooks coming back, and if he does I'm going to be happy for her, but really, you made me spend 45 minutes of my life feeling like "oh" for nothing?!
p.s. Can we talk about Juan Pablo for a second? What a stud.
