However, in the final analysis, Frank was not right for Ali and Brooks was not right for Des. All's well that ends well. JMHO.

However, maybe Frank was right for Ali after all, (though Ali was not right for Frank at the time, obviously).....but she has stated she regretted getting engaged to Roberto....and her current boyfriend is Frank's doppleganger, both in looks and in personality it seems.


I'm rooting for Chris and Des, as they seem pretty happy at this moment. But only time will tell whether they are right for one another in the long run, particularly after how the relationship started. But I'm glad they are giving it a go!

I also think that it will help their relaionship that they are starting their life together away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Many have been sucked in into to that lifestyle so I'm so glad that they've decided to live away from it. At this time, they don't seem to be interested in that lifestyle. Hoping all the best for them.

I also just watched their dates and I can really see that they're very compatible in every way. I'm glad that they chose each other.

The difference between these two and Ali and Roberto is that Des was genuinely confused but at the end of the day actually does want and need someone like Chris versus a man who cannot commit or doesn't know what he wants. Otoh, Ali and Rob had totally different goals and life objectives, he wanted someone more aligned with wife and mommyhood and she wanted to be on E! Frank was much more compatible with her life goals than Roberto and I suspect the same is true for her current bf who is also working in media. I don't see Des and Chris with competing life interests at this point so IMO now that she understands how much he loves her, she's fallen in love with him back and in fact their goals are probably much more in line with each other, which will serve to bond them even more.

I don't think it's a matter of Brooks can't commit and doesn't know what he wants, but that Des is just not right for him and he knows it. When the right girl comes along I'm sure he can commit. He was thinking of getting married to his last girlfriend until she cheated on him and he never let her back. He has this thing for being cheated on (and might have hinted it was a reason he started to go away from Des). He obviously knows what he wants, or he wouldn't have been able to pack up and get out when he did . . . and stick with it.

IMO, Des and Chris relationship started just fine. Their relationship didn't just start when Brooks left, it started from the very beginning.

Let me rephrase that....after how their engagement started. Not being a nay-sayer, just realistic given this franchise's reputation.

I can be happy for them, but a little cautiously happy.

Good points all around! Alana - agree totally re: Ali/Frank/Roberto!

Agent Curls - I agree with you too! I was unspoiled thru ep 4 & liked Brooks because of how he acted with other guys. Yes, great first date in ep 2 but then their alone time was fairly hidden in ep 3-6 other than showing them kissing. I thought Brooks would fall victim to first date curse & be gone before HTD. I started really noticing Brooks because of what Chris said in ep 3 when he came back ("so good, so charming") on Dodgeball group date and then my daughter and I both howled over Brooks in the Mr. America contest of ep 4. He was hilarious and just a great sport but they never should us alone time with Des on that date!

I then became spoiled before ep 5 but at that point, I was team Chris and had already thought that Des & Chris' relationship was two-sided, nicely progressing ... but def acknowledge that Des was ga ga for Brooks too except it was just not reciprocated. The Brooks/Des date in ep 7 was a huge red flag when he said that he was behind her emotionally. I was just waiting to see Brooks catch up in HTD thru LCD so it would make sense for him to be F1 but we all know what happened.

So, YES, I am sure Brooks is capable of great love and will one day find it. He's a sweet guy and wish more contestants would bow out if they were not feeling it as the poor leads are confused enough as it is!

I definitely think it was.  There where just too many similarities to Ali's Season and it led me to believe that when Brooks left he would not return.....just like Frank.  Someone posted after viewing Part 1 of the Finale (I don't recall the poster's name) that they noticed (on their Tivo recording during the credits) the camerman's info showed "Des and Brooks' Lovestory."   That to me confirmed that Des and Brooks lovestory was a producer manufactured one.  IMO, their lovestory was designed to capture the viewers and draw them into the manufactured lovestory, and it worked.
