Desiree Hartsock: I was disgusted and outraged over 'The Bachelorette' bachelorette Brian Jarosinski's betrayal
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/11/2013
Desiree Hartsock says she was completely repulsed by the situation in which Brian Jarosinski came onThe Bachelorette to compete for her heart despite having a girlfriend back home.
"I had no idea that Brian had a girlfriend back home or that he had unresolved problems with her. I was disgusted when I heard the news, and even more outraged when I learned that Stephanie is a single mother. It made me mad that someone could be so deceitful and disrespect women in that way," Hartsock wrote in her People blog.
During Monday night's The Bachelorettebroadcast, Jarosinski's girlfriend Stephanie came on the show claiming they had seen each other the day before he left for an alleged business trip -- aka filming the show -- and slept together. Jarosinski insisted they were broken up, but Stephanie said it was just a break to allow him some time to himself in which they weren't supposed to see other people.
"He also wasted my time and took the spot of another guy that did have the right intentions. Regardless of whether Brian and Stephanie were still together or not, there was no chance he was there for the right reasons -- or that he was staying. I just wanted him out of the house and to put it all behind me," The Bachelorette star wrote.
Hartsock attempted to forget what happened and enjoy her one-on-one date afterwards with Kasey Stewart, but the incident with Jarosinski had undeniably put a damper on the day and affected her mood.
"But after dinner took a turn for the worse when the wind picked up, I wasn't sure if it was just the elements or if there was something lacking in my connection with Kasey. I was disappointed in the date and confused about what might be missing between us. Was it because of that morning's drama?" Hartsock said.
As for the two group dates featured in this week's episode, Hartsock said she had a blast -- starting with the dodgeball date.
"At practice some guys still tried to talk with me and others seemed to forget they were on a date and were focused solely on the game. I appreciate someone with focus and the desire to win, but it was also nice to see that some guys could do both," she wrote.
"It was interesting to watch at practice and during the game because it gave me insight as to who was more passive and who enjoyed standing out. It was also important to see how they treated each other and to see friendships forming, since that is another window into who they are."
Juan Pablo Galavis apparently stood out in more ways than one during the cowboy stunts date.
"Even the Latin cowboy, Juan Pablo, surprised me with his skills. Could he have been any sexier!? This was definitely shaping up to be one of my favorite dates of this entire journey," Hartsock said.
