Oh, Sean Lowe works out? I almost forgot. While glistening with sweat and annoying homely husbands across America, the Bachelor shares, "One week into it, I find myself really digging a lot of women." Only Sean knows which ones but the possibilities include Sarah, Kacie, Desiree, AshLee, Lindsay, Robyn, Jackie, Lesley, Selma, Catherine, Kristy, Leslie, Tierra, Taryn, Daniella, and Amanda. One of these women could (but probably won't) be Sean's future wife.
Chris Harrison arrives on the scene of the crazy to deliver the first date card. It's addressed to Lesley and reads, "How long will this love last?" Lesley is excited and goes on and on about dreams coming true and taking her relationship with Sean to the next level.
Sean brings Lesley to the Guinness World Records Museum. Lesley isn't too impressed, saying, "I'm thinking, um, this could be fun, but if I could have picked any place… I really didn't think we'd be coming to the Guinness World Records." Poor Lesley… a waste of a good (albeit way too short) dress is always tragic.

The Bachelor folk are not about to let us forget that Sean Lowe's
riveting personality half-naked body looks ah-mazing. While working out and taking a shower, Sean talks about his second chance at love… on this amazing journey… to meet his future wife. The Bachelor needs a new script.
Sean and his bachelorettes go on dates this week! Chris Harrison explains the dating process to the 19 remaining ladies – First Rose Tierra, Wishing Well Desiree, OCD AshLee, Sexy Selma, Back Flips Robyn, Tries Too Hard Brooke, Lipstick Jackie, Kurly Katie, Sweet Sarah, Single Mom Diana, Mean Mugging Catherine, Poker Dealer Leslie, Awkward Pause Amanda, Desperate in D.C. Lesley, Ben Reject Kacie, Model Kristy, Handshake Daniella, Tears Taryn, and Drunk Bride Lindsay - and adds that Sean is the most sincere Bachelor ever.
Chris places the first date card on the coffee table, raises his hands in the air, and slowly backs out of the room… BRING ON THE CRAZY!
Kristy grabs the card, hoping to see her name on it, but it goes to Sarah. The date card reads, "Are you ready to fall in love today?" Everyone goes awwww and then wishes they, too, had only one arm. Oh, come on… you know the thought seeped into their catty heads. In all seriousness, I loved Sarah last week, so I'm excited about Sean's choice.

Bachelor fans, are you ready for the most amazing journey featuring one (hopefully shirtless) Sean Lowe and 26 (hopefully tipsy) Bachelorettes? As always, each lady is desperate to find love and most definitely there for the right reasons.
Chris Harrison is on hand, as well, to keep every single most dramatic rose ceremony running smoothly. Not on hand? Emily Maynard. She broke Sean's heart on the Bachelorette and, for the sake of my sanity, needs to stay far away from this season.
Sean has fully recovered from his heartbreak and is ready to try again on the Bachelor. Clearly, he's a fool. He says the idea of possibly meeting his future wife during this journey (drink up, my friends) is kind of exciting and kind of intimidating.
Sean adds, "I want the end result. I want to protect my woman. I want to love my woman. I want to honor her. I want to love her with everything I have, and I want to be the best possible man I can be for her. I want to be rich in love."
Because ABC doesn't completely hate me, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. stops by Sean's pad to help him prepare for what is to come. Mr. Holy Hotness schools Sean on how to properly kiss a woman: Eye contact. Use your hands. Touch her hair. Touch her face. Tease her with your tongue. No lizard tongue. Use your whole body. #coldshower
Curse you, Arie, for not signing up for this train wreck of a show solely for my entertainment.

Aww, there he is.. our new Bachelor holding a rose. ABC officially announced Sean Lowe as the star of The Bachelor Season 17 earlier this week! You know, right after Chris Harrison spilled the beans at the Emmy Awards. We met Sean on the Bachelorette, of course, but that season was all about Emily Maynard.
Now, Sean is the star and in charge of the roses. Sean, 28, is an entrepreneur from Dallas, Texas. Southern values, family, and faith are very important to Sean. In his free time, Sean enjoys camping, wakeboarding, dancing, outdoor activities, and attending concerts.
The ABC press release tells us what Sean is looking for as the Bachelor: "He wants to be the patriarch of a family that is centered on faith, love and, laughter. He is eager to be a supportive husband that will encourage his wife to chase her dreams, as well as someone who she can rely on to help her through good and bad times. Quite simply, he is looking for his best friend. Sean also wants a big family and would love to adopt a child along with having his own – just so long as he can pass along the values he was taught to his kids."
Taping is already underway for Sean's season, which will begin airing in January 2013. And, ABC must be eager to get this party started, because they have already released the pictures and first names of the 24 "new to us" women that will be competing for Sean's final rose (and that sweet Neil Lane rock). Undoubtedly, Sean's final rose will bring us the most romantic rose ceremony ever. Like, ever.. ever. I digress.. anyway, this information has been released at least three months earlier than normal. Their ages, hometowns, and occupations were not listed, however. In addition to the new faces, there are two familiar faces! Enjoy!
Also, check out the Sean Lowe is The Next Bachelor video at the end. It's hilarious!

Life & Style is reporting that Ben Flajnik has already broken up with the woman he promised to walk down the aisle with courtesy of Neil Lane and ABC. Ben swore he was on the show for the right reasons despite his insistence on keeping Courtney Robertson after she basically got naked on the first date and was a complete twat-asaurus to the other women in the house. He reassured America and twenty-five desperate women that he believed in love and knew his wife was amongst them.
And despite a rocky start, Ben definitely found love and proposed to one lucky lady atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps. When Ben got down on one knee for his second time on reality TV, this time the woman whispered “yes!” and engaged they were! But not for long because it seems nearly as soon as the plane touched down on US soil the problems began!
Multiple sources are confirming that a scant three months after a fairytale engagement things are already falling apart for the couple! Well, if Ben chose who we all suspect he did it’s no wonder they’re having problems! Ahem…famewhore!
“They have totally cooled off,” a source who knows the winning woman reveals. “They often go five to six days without talking. He doesn’t call her, he doesn’t text. She keeps saying, ‘What kind of a fiancé is this?’ In her mind, he’s pretty much dumped her.” Perhaps it’s watching the episodes every week and seeing what really went on behind his back has something to do with Ben losing interest in said fiance.
And that is exactly what seems to be the problem! According to an insider who knows Ben well, the Sonoma, CA winemaker was sincere when he proposed, but watching the show week after week and seeing less flattering sides to the women has opened his eyes. “Ben started to feel like he got played,” the insider explains, and he is ready to move on! According to another source, Ben is even considering moving to NYC to live with friends. THAT I don’t believe – Ben loves his vineyard!
Ben has become so distant from the woman he asked to be his wife, she thinks he’s cheating! “[The winner] thinks Ben’s cheating on her,” a source confides. “She knows he’s been running around New York with other girls and not calling her. She thinks he’s a coward. She just wishes he’d end it already — otherwise maybe she’ll do it herself.”
I say they both got what they were looking for out of the deal. Fame, attention, and more opportunity!
In other Bachelor news, next week the final four women bring Ben home to meet their families. See exclusive behind the scenes photos from next week’s episode below! The remaining women are Courtney, Kacie B, Lindzi, and Nicki!

Despite very strong warnings from his bachelorettes about 28-year-old model Courtney Robertson, Ben refused to let her go, keeping her for next week’s hometown dates.
In his weekly blog for PEOPLE, Ben, age 28, opens up about his “strong” feelings for Courtney, while also explaining why he decided to ignore the strong warnings from the other contestants about her.
First Ben defends, yes defends, Court-court: “I know it’s been hard for Courtney, and to be honest, I’m not sure this was the best environment for her. But, just as I tell the women to take our relationships individually, I try to do the same. My feelings for Courtney are strong and I don’t want to let external forces get in the way.”
Ben goes on to explain why he decided to pull Courtney away during the rose ceremony. Ben writes, “As the rose ceremony approached, I had a lot going through my head. All the women told me about their reservations regarding Courtney, and I really had to think about what I was missing, or if this was all just part of the nature of the women living together. It’s amazing to see how deeply the women felt about their dislike for Courtney, and it’s equally amazing not to see any of that coming through in her actions with me.”
Ben also pretends he actually considered sending Courtney packing! “It was a lot to consider, but my conversation with Courtney at the rose ceremony reaffirmed that I have to take these relationships individually and focus on the way she is when she’s with me,” writes Ben. “I see what some of the women were talking about, but I still feel great about Courtney because when I’m with her, I feel really connected to her.”
But fret not, as Ben assures us the other contestants are still in the running as well! He writes, “In the end, my feelings for Kacie, Nicki, Lindzi and Courtney were the strongest. More than anything, I was completely thrilled that they wanted to take me home to meet their families. Family is everything to me, and it’s a very important part of this journey.”
TELL US – SHOULD BEN HAVE SENT COURTNEY PACKING? DO YOU THINK HE PICKS HER IN THE END?
Even worse for the network, Ben Flajnik’s season has yet to begin airing yet his final four and fiancé have already been unveiled.
