ABC confirmed what many of us were thinking and hoping for: Sean Lowe is the next Bachelor for the upcoming season! When The Bachelorette Emily Maynard didn’t pick Sean, it was a great opportunity for ABC to move him over to The Bachelor 2013 and show off those muscles for another season! Sean Lowe now has his pick of 25 women when The Bachelor 2013 kicks off.
During The Bachelorette 2012, Sean Lowe may not have been able to win over Emily Maynard, but he was able to win over the hearts of America and ABC. The sexy Dallas businessman and entrepreneur didn’t get the final rose, but now he will be handing out the roses on The Bachelor 2013.
Many rumors have been flying around for who the next Bachelor would be, including Sean Lowe and Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte, which I thought it would be him. However, ABC confirmed it to People Magazine and it will be Sean Lowe. When asked this summer about maybe being The Bachelor 2013, Lowe said, “I’m an open-minded optimist, and I believe the process can work. If I found my wife, it would be worth it.” Taping of The Bachelor Season 17 has already begun and will start airing in January 2013.
What do you think of Sean Lowe as the new Bachelor? Were you hoping to see him or Ryan Lochte? I think it is a smart move because it seems like ABC often brings back past contestants from The Bachelor or The Bachelorette to try it all on their own, but I think Ryan Lochte could have brought in some major ratings for The Bachelor 2013. Don’t you agree?
