This week's episode narrowed the field down to three women with the shocking exit of early front runner Desiree Hartsock. She was sent home by Sean Lowe after he struggled with the decision. He spoke about the difficulty he had in sending her home in his new comments. He said the following, according to People Magazine:
"I walked into the rose ceremony not knowing who was going home. I felt confident in giving a rose to AshLee and Lindsay, but I had questions about Des and Catherine. In the end, I gave the rose to Catherine over Des because I couldn't picture saying goodbye to Catherine yet. But saying goodbye to Des was awful. She was telling me I was a making a mistake and I was starting to believe her. I wasn't ready to see her go, but I knew if I kept her I'd have to send someone else home in her place and I wasn't prepared to do that."
Desiree had been a favorite of Sean's in previous episodes, but there was trouble at her hometown date. Her brother said some things to Sean that heavily influenced his decision to let her go. Chris Harrison spoke about Desiree and the incident with her brother in his comments. He said the following, according to Entertainment Weekly:
"In the end I think it’s safe to say that Des’ brother sabotaged his sister and ruined their relationship. At this point in the game there’s very little separating these four women. Des’ final plea really shook Sean up and, as you saw, made him second-guess what he was going to do. This was easily the toughest decision Sean’s made so far. It was tough to see Desiree going home knowing she had done nothing wrong. It just didn’t feel right watching them say goodbye."
Chris and Sean also admitted during an interview that aired on Tuesday night that Desiree's brother surprised them because an earlier meeting between Sean and the man went well. Desiree's brother asked to speak to Sean again, and that is when the problems between them popped up.
A deleted scene released by the series shows a moment not seen during Monday night's episode featuring a poem written by Desiree. She read the poem to Sean during their hike, and she asked him not to go. Fans are buzzing about this series on social media. One fan said the following on Twitter recently:
I love the girls and I love @SeanLowe09 but he has too many perfect relationships going on. I just don't see it happening #TheBachelor
"The Bachelor" will continue to air on Channel 15 in Tempe on Monday nights.
