The Bachelorette premieres on May 27th. After Sean Lowe broke up with her on his season of The Bachelor, Desiree Hartsock was heartbroken. It wasn’t long after she was approached by ABC to be the next bachelorette. Desiree, who is looking for real love, didn’t hesitate to accept the offer to date 25 men, to hopefully fall in love and meet her husband. Her journey started around the time Sean’s season of The Bachelor concluded, and since then, Des has apparently chosen her new man. The pictures and bio’s of her potential suitors were posted yesterday. Take a look at the guys and let us know who you like and who you think might be the best fit for Des, based on their looks, backgrounds, family values, and of course — their penmanship. See more of my critique of the guys here.
