|Desiree and Brooks newlywed date|
On her date with Brooks Forester: "For that first date, I wanted someone who could be spontaneous and turn a seemingly awkward activity into fun and laughter. Brooks was the perfect choice...I was the happiest person alive after a successful first date and that geared me up for the dates to follow."
Giving the rose to Ben: "It was really tough for me to decide who to give the rose to. I had a great conversation with Ben where we shared stories about our childhood and our interests so I felt I had more invested in him. But I didn't realize how giving it to him would affect the others."
