Sean makes his mark on ‘The Bachelor,’ as he meets his contestants — including his future bride!
Sean Lowe made his highly anticipated debut as The Bachelor on Jan. 7, and what a season premiere it was! There was kissing, heart breaking, and romantic whisperings — and that was just between Sean and Arie Luyendyk Jr.! After a pep talk from his former rival, Sean began his journey by whittling down the 26 contestants to just 19, which was no easy feat considering they were all gorgeous, all hysterical and all dying to be his future wife.
Sean Meets The Contestants
Sean, a finalist on the latest season of The Bachelorette, had his heart broken by Emily Maynard when she failed to pick him as her fiancé. But now it is his turn to hand out the roses! Sean looked cute and nervous as limo after limo of beautiful girls arrived to meet him. My personal favorite was when Robyn from Texas took a nasty tumble when trying to cartwheel her way to Sean. She quite literally fell head over heels!
And then there was the game changer! Sean decided to give rumored villain Tierra a rose before the rose ceremony even began! And the other girls were not impressed. I call her as this season’s Courtney Robertson.
It was impressive that so many of the girls tried different tactics to be rememberable. There were football plays, gymnastics, and 50 Shades of Grey. Perhaps the best tactic was Lindsay‘s prop, as Sean looked visibly scared when she arrived in a full white wedding dress! The season looked like it was over before it had even begun, as he had a ready made bride. And Sean lit up when his rumored fiance Catherine emerged from her car, as he told her “you look beautiful.”
And who could forget the return of Kacie Boguskie! HollywoodLife.com previously reported that Ben Flajnik‘s former love interest would be returning for this season, and she looks like she is not planning on going home fiance-less this time.
Sean Hands Out The Roses
After Sean met all the ladies, he began handing out roses in the mansion. Tensions were running high as certain girls — the forward ones — were getting roses, while other girls — the drunk, crazy ones — were not. It looked like poor Lindsay‘s wedding dress plan backfired, as she failed to get a rose from Sean. And I loved it when Sean said the 50 Shades of Grey girl had become “50 shades of drunk”. At least she still has her tie to keep her warm at night!
With more fake tan, hairspray and false lashes than one would see in a Miss America pageant, these girls clearly meant business. Bachelor host Chris Harrison announced the rose ceremony, and the wheat was separated from the chaff.
Sean picked his final 19 girls, and thank the dear sweet lord Lindsay got a rose! Meanwhile, Ashley H. and Paige did not make it through — but let’s face it, the right girls have won! This season looks like it is going to be explosive.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do you think Sean makes a good Bachelor? Do you think he picked the right girls?
