For whatever reason, the state of Texas has had a rather substantial connection to “The Bachelor” franchise over the years. Out of the last four leading men on the ABC show, only Ben Flajnik was not from the Lone Star State while Jake Pavelka, Brad Womack, and now Sean Lowe all are. In addition to that, former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader (and Jason Mesnick ex) Melissa Rycroft is the reigning “Dancing with the Stars” champion, and even the show’s host in Chris Harrison is from the area before starting up his television career in Oklahoma.
While Sean is already back in Dallas in order to take in the Christmas holidays (where he may or may not be joined in secret by the woman he picked on the already-filmed season of the ABC show) Harrison did more than just fly back in to the city this week: he also paid a visit to the famous cheerleading squad. The group posted the attached picture on their Twitter account, which Harrison hash-tagged (yes, that is now a verb) by saying that it was “every boy’s dream.”
Harrison will be seen presiding over Sean’s festivities all season long beginning with the January 7 premiere, and expectations are high already for this to be a pretty entertaining collection of episodes. After all, Sean established himself as a strong man with southern values during his time on Emily Maynard’s season, and we know already that this has made him a pretty sought-after figure even before he was cast as the leading man this time around. Unfortunately for him, we already know that it is not going to be an easy road to find love in between constant fighting and drama among the ladies this year.
