Discovery Channel's annual fin-fest is in full swing (Voodoo Sharks, anyone?) but it wasn't the only network dishing out drama last night.
Desiree Hartsock's heart was on the line Monday after front-runner Brooks Forester bailed during the two-part gut-wrenching Bachelorette finale.
Viewers were left guessing if the blindsided bridal stylist would choose between poetic mortgage broker Chris Siegfried and intensely romantic marketing analyst Drew Kenney – or leave them both behind to mend her broken heart.

As suspected, Brooks was just not that into The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock and thus her frontrunner for a fairy tale ending excused himself from the tournament of roses. He left her a weeping pile of emotion on an Antigua pier and left producers and viewers alike wondering if the show would go on.
"The first thing I said when I walked out after [my conversation with] Brooks was, 'We might be done.' We were in the home stretch trying to set up a happy ending and magic proposal. This was a curveball," host Chris Harrison said during a press call Thursday.

Desiree Hartsock promised "raw emotion and real feelings" on the finale of The Bachelorette. And it has already delivered.
Part one of the two-part finale included plenty of heartbreak stemming from a shocking twist.
Desiree was left reeling on Monday's episode after Brooks Forester, considered the front-runner for her affections, revealed that he just wasn't feeling it – and decided to leave.

It's down to the final two on The Bachelorette. But can either get the heartbroken Desiree Hartsock to say "I Do" after Brooks said "I Don't" to her last week?
"Brooks leaving, it broke my heart," a weeping Hartsock says in an exclusive clip of the Part 2 season finale, airing Monday (8 p.m. ET). "It broke my heart for him to say those things to me. Knowing I have two amazing, unreal, guys who do want to love me, who do love me, but I just can't love them as much."
