Sean Lowe has no idea what he’s gotten himself into. Watch the latest ‘Bachelor’ trailer & weigh in with your predictions!

Bachelor fans were treated to an extended preview of the upcoming 17th season Dec. 16 after Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum‘s wedding special; and along with gratuitous shots of Sean Lowe walking shirtless on the beach — he does his best thinking that way — we were also introduced to the newest Bachelor villain: Tierra LiCausi, who might be the franchise’s nastiest contestant yet.

“I’m above anyone else,” Tierra screeches in the promo, demonstrating her incredible friend-making abilities. “I’m not going to let any girl stop me from being with Sean. … I will bite.”

So it should probably come as no surprise that Tierra’s fellow contestants kind of hate her. And considering previous promos have promised “red-hot tears” — which actually sounds like a serious medical condition — I’m thinking it’ll be Tierra making the other girls cry.

The extended preview also introduced us to Desiree Hartsock, who may or may not still have a boyfriend. A man is seen trying to win her back at her house — spoiler alert: she obviously makes it to the home-town dates — and he even tries to get physical with Sean.

There’s also a moment this season where Sean is “blindsided” by something so shocking that he actually drops one of the roses. Off a balcony. In slow motion! And we all know it really doesn’t get more intense than that.

Watch the extended Bachelor promo below, then drop a comment with your predictions for season 17:
