‘The Bachelor’: Has ’50 Shades of Grey’ factored into Sean Lowe’s first night?

One day into official filming for “The Bachelor” this season, and producers for whatever reason still have not confirmed that Sean Lowe is the man handing out roses. Saying that he is the lead at this point, though, is pretty much the worst-kept secret in America, though, so it is hardly a shock to make the assumption that he is there.

So how was the man’s first night of filming? We’re not going to spoil any of the actual results (mostly because we are not that kind of site), but there are some other details that are coming in courtesy of executive producer Mike Fleiss. First and foremost, he says per Twitter that “one of the girls is a big fan of ’50 Shades of Grey,'” which probably means that she will be one of the first people out given how conservative and Christian Sean appears to be. It was the same sort of first night that you would expect from the show, as all of the women (save for a few surprises here and there) arrived in the famous limos outside of the Malibu mansion. (In case you’re wondering, they wet the driveway to make it look cooler on TV.)

Sean will likely remain with the women in the Greater Los Angeles area for a few weeks, and following that officially begin some of the travels around the world. Considering that Emily Maynard’s season spent a good bit of time in Europe, we would not be shocked if most of Sean’s international dates were in places like Brazil or Australia. Since the days will be getting cooler as the season progresses, we have a feeling that they will largely stick to warm-weather climates for the sake of showing off Sean’s abs (not to mention the bikinis).
