Just A Normal Girl
Monday at 8/7c on ABC
The Bachelorette begins a very special season tonight. It is the first time in a long time that The Bachelorette is just a normal girl from a lower middle class home. Desiree Hartsock will be refreshing to all viewers. Desiree begins her tour of duty as The Bachelorette by pulling up to her official residence in her old beater car.
LIVE TWITTER CHAT WITH "THE BACHELORETTE" DESIREE HARTSOCK FOR THE SEASON PREMIERE OF THE SERIES, MONDAY, MAY 27
Fans of ABC's hit romance reality series "The Bachelorette" will be able to submit questions and receive real-time responses from the Bachelorette herself, Desiree Hartsock, who will be up on Twitter at @DesHartsock during the East Coast broadcast of this season's premiere, MONDAY, MAY 27, from 8:00-10:01 p.m., ET.
In the premiere episode, "Episode 901," 25 eligible men come from all over to try and win Desiree's heart. Immediately the drama and one-upsmanship begin. Desiree's anxiety melts away as soon as the men start to compete to impress her: Larry, a nervous ER doctor, tries to break some romantic dance moves, but he's no Fred Astaire; Nick R., who plies his trade as a professional magician, displays his talents to Desiree; a shirtless Zak W., a hunky oil rig worker, displays an outstanding six-pack to impress the Bachelorette; and Diogo appears like a knight in shining armor - literally. But the one who captures Desiree's heart is our youngest man to ever climb out of a limousine -- Ben's four-year-old adorable son, Brody, who accompanies his single dad.
The battle for Desiree's attention and affection has only begun. The 19 roses come out early. Nick R. sets off a commotion as the men rush to get time alone with the Bachelorette. After Desiree gives out the first rose, a jealous frenzy erupts between the guys. Brad, who is a part-time DJ, sparkles with some hip hop dance moves. Fearless, topless Zak W. strips down to his underwear and dives into the pool. But how will Desiree react to this immodest stunt? Strikingly handsome Juan Pablo, a former pro soccer player, attempts to give the Bachelorette a private dribbling lesson. However, before too long, the rest of the men jump into the action. And Jonathan drops a bombshell when he decides the time is right to invite Desiree into his own special "fantasy suite," which leads to an explosive reaction.
Some bachelors with early roses can relax, but the others are very apprehensive as the season's first rose ceremony begins. Finally, Desiree will have the 19 men who will move into the mansion and continue on the quest for her heart.
Chris Harrison is the host of "The Bachelorette."
