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.
