If you think that Sean Lowe is just going to be the same sort of quiet, unassuming guy that he was for most of Emily Maynard’s season of “The Bachelorette” moving forward on “The Bachelor” this season, be prepared to be proven wrong. This is what at least the man responsible for overseeing the operation is saying about the new season premiering Monday night, which has the difficult task of trying to keep viewers on board the franchise after so many flocked away during “Bachelor Pad 3” and even Ben Flajnik’s season of the show.
Luckily, Chris Harrison tells TV Guide that if you go into this new season with any sort of preconceived notions about the guy that Sean is going to be, you will probably end up having some egg on your face:
“[People who think,] ‘Crap, he’s like vanilla toast,’ — well, he’s not … People will be surprised by his personality and charisma, and he’s also got an edge to him. He’s not afraid of confrontation or saying the wrong thing. “
The one other thing that we have learned about Sean just from watching him on social media is rather simple: he’s actually a very funny guy. You don’t often associate someone who has such deep ties to their faith as also being someone who can crack a joke, and so it’s nice to see him wiping away some old TV stereotypes. We know already that he is also going to be a rule-breaker on the show itself, as well: Sean will give out numerous first impression roses during the first night, and will have a small number of roses to actually give out at the end of the episode.
