It’s only been two days since the finale of the Bachelor and fans are already anxiously awaiting the new season of the Bachelorette starring Katie Holme’s doppelganger Desiree Hartsock. Hartsock is the 26-year-old bridal stylist (and enneagram 2),that broke our heart on the Bachelor as she pleaded with Sean to change his mind to give her the boot. Hopefully 4 months was enough time to recover from a 6 week relationship.
And Sean is elated that Desiree will get her chance to hand out roses and consult with Chris Harrison.
“They couldn’t have chosen a better Bachelorette,” Lowe, 29, told PEOPLE.
“I’ve said from the beginning, my vote was always for Des. She’s America’s sweetheart, and I think she’s going into it with sincere intentions.”
Sean also weighed in on getting “crucified” by fans after rejecting Des. (Sorry I couldn’t resist the Christian reference).
“I absolutely got torn to shreds in social media when I sent her home,” Lowe says. “America voiced their opinion. They really love her! And I think it’s because she’s so sweet and so sincere.”
He adds: “I think she’ll do a great job.”
