Four days ago, Desiree Hartsock was left heartbroken after Sean Lowe eliminated her from The Bachelor.
Many viewers thought her brother Nate was the cause of her early dismissal. After the show, she announced on Twitter that she's not angry at her brother. But now Nate tells Life & Style how troubled their relationship was following her departure from the ABC series.

"She totally blames me for her not being with Sean," Nate tells Life & Style.
Sean visited the four finalists hometowns earlier this week, but it was his meeting with Nate that may have changed his mind about dating Desiree.
"So far, from being here and what I've seen, I believe that she's really into you, but you're not into her," Nate told the 29-year-old devout Christian on camera — even questioning his "born-again virgin" status.

Sean insisted that Nate was wrong and he was “crazy” about her, but Nate responded, "I think you're just a playboy. You're just having fun with the circumstances, with whatever comes along."
Apparently, Sean wasn’t all that interested in Desiree — at the end of the episode, he eliminated the 26-year-old brunette beauty.
"I could tell that it wasn't meant to be, and it's obviously not meant to be now, so I'm happy," Nate tells Life & Style.
As Life & Style reports in this week's issue, Sean does propose to one of the three women (Catherine Giudici, AshLee Frazier, and Lindsay Yenter) left.
