The Bachelor returned for a 17th season on Monday night, and this season’s bachelor is Sean Lowe. You might remember him from Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette, where he was the last bachelor eliminated before the finale.
Now he’s back, with 26 women to choose from this time around. And a few things are pretty obvious this season:
- Even though the discrimination lawsuit against the show was dismissed, they’re being REALLY careful in their casting decisions this time around.
- In an attempt to show off Sean’s spontaneity, they have him hand out 12 roses before the first rose ceremony. CRAZY!
- The girls are total nutjobs who are desperate to get married!
While I really liked the girl who got the first rose, the previews for this season make it seem like she’s this season’s Vienna.
I’m also bummed that the girl obsessed with 50 Shades of Grey got sent home already.. That could have made for some interesting TV! 😀
Regardless, it looks like we’re in for another crazy season. If you missed the first episode, you can watch it online at ABC.com.
