Tulsa Native to Appear on The Bachelorette

Watch how Kasey compares to the other contestants on Monday at 7 p.m. on Tulsa's Channel 8.

A Tulsa native will try to win the heart of Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock when the ninth edition of the ABC's The Bachelorette premieres Monday on Tulsa's Channel 8.

Kasey Stewart, 29, is an advertising executive in California. He is originally from Tulsa and graduated from Oral Roberts University.

Stewart is just one of 25 men competing to win Desiree's heart.

Bachelor fans will recognize Desiree. 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," at 7 p.m. Monday, May 27 on Tulsa's Channel 8.
