Who is Desiree Hartsock?
"Desiree Hartsock, 26, moved numerous times with her family as a youth and eventually settled in Colorado. After her high school graduation, she moved to California where she attended Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FITM) in Los Angeles. Although her family was of modest means, they were rich in love (We all remember her brother, Nathan, who hated Sean Lowe!).
Desiree is currently an operations manager at a bridal salon and a bridal stylist, but that hasn't stopped her for shooting for the stars. She is confident that in the future she will be a bridal gown designer who owns her own boutique. But more than anything, Desiree's ultimate dream is to find a love like the one her parents share. Married for 35 years, but together for 40, they've always supported and appreciated one another. It's that cherished model of marriage that led Desiree to be on The Bachelor, where she fell in love with Sean.
Meet some of Desiree's guys!
This spunky, athletic and artistic woman is eagerly looking for a life filled with spontaneity, love and laughter. She hopes someday to travel the world with that special someone whom she'll run home to see every day. And she is positive, after falling in love on The Bachelor, that she can find her soul mate on The Bachelorette."
The Bachelorette premieres MONDAY, MAY 20 (9:00-11:00 p.m. on ABC).
