‘The Bachelor’ preview: Sean Lowe’s hurdles with AshLee Frazier, Desiree Hartsock

AshLeeLeading up to Monday night’s all-new episode of “The Bachelor,” it seems very much appropriate for us to ask the following question: what do all of Sean Lowe’s ladies need to do in order to secure themselves a place in the final three? When you consider that tonight marks hometown dates, there is without question one common bond that all of the women do share at the moment: not having their families screw things up. (At the moment, Desiree Hartsock seems to be the person most likely to have this happen to her.)

But what do they have control over? The challenge is going to be for them to present the best version of themselves in what has to be a pretty high-stress environment, especially as they have to balance making their families proud and convincing Sean that they need to stay around for another week. Therefore, we’re putting ourselves in the position of counselor (many months after filming is complete, meaning that this isn’t really going to help anyone) to offer up a few suggestions.

AshLee Frazier – Be spontaneous and light-hearted! The best thing AshLee can do now is pretend that Tierra LiCausi never existed, and show Sean that there is a life with her that is stuffed full of passion and excitement, and you do not need to be intimidated by her despite her emotional and inspirational story.

Catherine Giudici – Be romantic. We already know that there is a wonderful friendship there, but the romance may still need to match what Sean has with Lindsay if she wants the final rose at the end.

Desiree Hartsock – Be cognizant of the world around you, and stay out of your own way. Desiree’s biggest challenger on this season has been herself more than it has the other women, and if things really hit the fan during her hometown date, she has to be quick to say that her family does not influence her in any way.

Lindsay Yenter – Be reassuring. With her father being a general, she has to remind Sean that hse is still the same woman that he fell for through most of the season, and there is no reason to change and cower in fear just because her dad is present. These two obviously have the best chemistry, and they just have to keep it going.
