Yes, it's that time again — new year, new season of The Bachelor! One of our favorite parts about tuning into the show is predicting the relationships and guessing who will win the bachelor or bachelorette's heart in the end. On Emily's season of The Bachelorette, Sean Lowe didn't win her heart — but he has gotten the chance to be the bachelor himself. Today season 17 of The Bachelor premieres, and we can't wait to meet the full cast of characters vying for Sean. Before we do, though, let's take a look at this season's contestants to see who might make the perfect match for the Texas-bred bachelor.
In talking about the show, Sean told Reality TV World, "If America's looking for me to kind of follow a type of woman, then they're going to be surprised, because there's all types of women that I start to develop relationships and feelings for." We already know a few things about Sean: he's Southern, he has strong family values, he's a devout Christian, and he's into fitness after playing football at Kansas State on a full athletic scholarship. With all that in mind — plus the ABC bachelorette bios — we're highlighting how the 25 contestants might get along with Sean. Take a look and tell us what you think: which girls will be booted, who will cause drama, and who will receive the final rose?
