Desiree did the official post-filming interview through ABC, and here are some of the articles published since, giving you some of her answers:

    “The journey was incredibly emotional and it was really surprising throughout, but unfortunately I can’t comment on [the outcome] at this time,” says Desiree. “I’m glad that I did decide to do the show. I was satisfied with my decisions throughout, I followed and trusted my heart.”

    Night one of her season starts off with a bang, including a rather awkward situation involving a Fantasy Suite.

    “It was very uncomfortable, but I kind of took it like I would in my day-to-day life — I disregarded his behavior and didn’t stand for it,” Desiree tells Zap2it. But that was just a minor blip on the radar, because she was “surprised by how many amazing men there were.”

    Desiree adds that it’s an experience she had to really consider, but it ultimately worked out well as a personal journey.

    “It is very emotional and it’s a personal journey, so I needed to make sure I wanted to share that with the world,” says Desiree. “The feelings that do develop are very real … Yes, there’s gonna be tears. But I really wanted to go on this show with all of my emotions being shown.”

Here is her new Bio released by ABC:

    If you could be someone else for just one day, who would it be and why?
    An Olympic champion to know what it feels like to physically work so hard to be the best in the world at something and have all that hard work pay off.

    What is your favorite all-time book and why?
    “Eat, Pray, Love” because it’s a personal journey of overcoming and finding love and happiness along the way.

    I love it when my date…
    Isn’t trying to be someone else or act different to impress me. When they can be candid and goofy and let the date proceed naturally.

    Desiree Hartsock and the Bachelor Nation faithful thought she would happily end up with America’s favorite Bachelor, Sean Lowe. Their relationship started off incredibly strong, but somewhere along the way Desiree lost her confidence. After struggling to regain what they once had, Sean and Desiree seemed to be on the right track – until the hometown dates. Millions watched, stunned, as Sean sent Desiree home, and they fell even more in love with her as she struggled to tell him he was making a big mistake. Now it’s time for Desiree to call the shots when she gets her second chance to find love, starring in the ninth edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, The Bachelorette.

    Desiree, 27, moved numerous times with her family as a youth and eventually settled in Colorado. After her high school graduation, she moved to California where she attended Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles. Although her family was of modest means, they were rich in love. Their values helped guide Desiree to become an industrious, passionate and creative woman who loves living in California and working hard to make her dreams come true. She is currently an operations manager at a bridal salon and a bridal stylist, but that hasn’t stopped her for shooting for the stars. She is confident that in the future she will be a bridal gown designer who owns her own boutique. But more than anything, Desiree’s ultimate dream is to find a love like the one her parents share. Married for 35 years, but together for 40, they’ve always supported and appreciated one another. It’s that cherished model of marriage that led Desiree to be on The Bachelor, where she fell in love with Sean.

    This spunky, athletic and artistic woman is eagerly looking for a life filled with spontaneity, love and laughter. She hopes someday to travel the world with that special someone whom she’ll run home to see every day. And she is positive, after falling in love on The Bachelor, that she can find her soul mate on The Bachelorette.
