ABC has announced who will be vying for the hearts of women this winter and that man is Sean Lowe. You may remember him as a viewer favorite on the last season of The Bachelorette. ABC confirms to People, that the Dallas businessman will go for his shot at love on the show’s upcoming season. After making the final three on The Bachelorette, Emily sent him home as she’d fallen for Jef Holm.
Everyone from Ryan Lochte to former Bachelorette ex-finance Roberto Martinez were rumored to be cast, but Sean nabs the lead “role.” Lowe says that he’ll be open-minded and believes the process can work. Production is underway for the show’s 17th season, which is slated to air Jan 2013 on ABC!
