I have to believe that man or woman, anyone who watched this episode had to feel for Des. She was totally blindsided by Brooks. We've all been there...those gut wrenching moments when your heart is broken and you cry so hard that your head hurts, your nose is running, and you're so choked up that you can't even get the words out to speak. Now imagine having to relive that moment on national television. What a terrible moment for Des.
I think what makes these breakups so much harder is knowing that you will probably never see them again once the show is over. They usually live in another city. It's not like you're going to run into them again at the grocery store or a bar. There won't be any bootie calls...no accidental hook ups. It's just over...really over. And for Des, who thought she was finally in love with someone who would lover her back, she was left with the realization that Brooks was never going to reciprocate her feelings. When she said, "It just sucks that I loved you...I do love you...I do...I don't care that you just broke my heart...I love you", I was proud of her. At least she got it out. At least she won't look back on this moment and wish she'd told him how she was really feeling.
So much for the fantasy suites...this show was more like a nightmare. I think those frogs were trying to warn Drew and Chris to run! Both dates actually seemed to go really well. I wish she would actually give one of them a chance. I realize she is heart-broken and was convinced that Brooks was the one, but good looking, great guys, who love you don't come along every day. I'm not saying that she should get engaged to one of them, but I think she should at least consider getting to know them more and be open to the idea that maybe there is something there. But it would seem that she is planning to run home with her tail between her legs. So sad...tune in next week to see the Ultra Dramatic Finale.
