'The Bachelorette': Desiree Looks Rosy in First Poster (Exclusive Image)
Desiree Hartsock already has plenty of fans after she won over the hearts of viewers with her bubbly personality and positive attitude during Sean Lowe's recent season of The Bachelor.
Therefore, many viewers are anxiously awaiting Desiree's season of The Bachelorette, which will begin airing in May.
We've got the first look at artwork for Desiree's season, and it's, in a word, rosy.
The Hollywood Reporter here exclusively debuts the key art for the ninth season of the ABC spinoff dating show, which features the bridal stylist wearing a glamorous red dress, designed to look like dozens of roses. The image features the tagline: "Her time to dream." (View the larger image below.)
THR recently spoke with the show's creator, Mike Fleiss, who says that shooting Desiree's season has been "really entertaining."
"She’s very likable, she’s very sincere, she’s really looking for love," he says.
"I’ll say this about her: I think she’s one of the most telegenic people I’ve ever seen," Fleiss adds. "She sparkles on camera."
Desiree was a fan favorite on Sean’s season of The Bachelor. The bridal stylist quickly won over fans early on in the season. However, she was sent home after the hometown visits episode, when her brother grilled Sean and accused him of being disingenuous.
The Bachelorette will have its two-hour premiere Monday, May 27 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
