It’s that eternal question that seems to plague every Bachelor and Bachelorette: Are their potential mates on the show there for “the right reasons?”
In a teaser for the new season, Hartsock, 26, is faced with a solemn-looking Chris Harrison and a woman who proclaims, “I’m Brian’s girlfriend.”
Of course, this is the same franchise that loves to play practical jokes on its stars and its audience, (Des herself pranked Bachelor Sean Lowe last season), so we’re not holding our breath for a bonafide ex-girlfriend showdown.
Regardless, the teaser promises rollerskating and man tears, so there’s plenty to look forward to when Des hands out the roses.
The new season of The Bachelorette premieres Memorial Day Monday, May 27, on ABC.
