The Bachelor Season Premiere Recap: Sean Lowe Shakes Things Up

January 07, 2013 08:50 PM by Lisa Princ

Finally, it was the night we have all been waiting for! Sean Lowe made his debut on the new season of The Bachelor on ABC. And if you were expecting Sean the good guy to be boring, you couldn’t be more wrong. Instead, Sean Lowe decided to shake things up and create his own sort of drama!

The Bachelor kicked off its new season with Sean Lowe tonight, and we all watched in awe over his shirtless montages at the start of the premiere. On another note though, seriously, how many times can we watch Sean have his heartbroken by Emily Maynard? After all that useless nonsense, it was time for some much needed advice for a very nervous Sean. And who better to give advice than Arie Luyendyk Jr.? After all, he and Sean have a common bond in that they were both dumped by Emily.

Watching Sean and Arie together was one of the funniest moments of the show, especially watching these pretend to be “breaking up,” and Arie dishing out kissing advice. Okay, am I the only one who would not want kissing advice from Mr. Sleazy, Arie? While Sean told Arie that he was thrilled for the advice, he told us all at home that he would likely never use any of it – shocker!

Sean Lowe was very nervous as the limos started to arrive, and one by one, the girls started to pile out. Some of the more memorable entrances included Jackie, a makeup artist, who made sure to leave a lipstick mark on Sean’s cheek, although it was wiped off by the very next girl. Then there was Robyn, a former cheerleader who decided to back flip her way out of the limo and over to Sean. Too bad she missed a step and landed flat on her behind – talk about a last impression.

Kelly, a crooner, was another memorable one as she decided to sing Sean an original love song that she wrote for him. I am still trying to figure out what was worse – her singing or her neon orange tan. We also watched an lady obsessed with 50 Shades Of Grey, who happened to pull a tie from her cleavage, promising to use it on Sean – yikes. Oh, and of course, there was one nutjob that showed up in a wedding gown, but claimed she was just showing her sense of humor.

We also met a girl with only one arm, the result of a birth defect, and we saw a few beautiful women of color as well – so much for that lawsuit, eh? The most shocking arrival of the night for Sean, however, was Kacie B. Kacie was on Ben Flajnik’s season of the show, and according to Sean, she happened to be a good friend. Needless to say, Sean was shocked that Kacie was showing a romantic interest in him.

And just when we thought Kacie joining the room of ladies would be enough drama, Sean decided to turn up the drama factor another notch. When Tierra, a 24-year-old leasing consultant approached Sean after coming out of the limo, he was so impressed by her beauty and enthusiasm, that he made her wait while he went to have a private chat with Chris Harrison. When Sean returned, he had a rose for Tierra. Yeah, we know what you’re thinking – first impression rose, right? Not according to Sean, who continued to hand out numerous roses throughout the night.

This made many of the girls upset and nervous, especially Kacie, who had some one on one time with Sean and did not walk away with a rose – would she get one at the ceremony? Kacie reminded Sean that she thought they “needed to see if there was something there,” and that she had a huge crush on him. As the girls began to get nervous, they also began to drink – way too much. The “50 shades of grey” girl had way to much to drink, made a complete fool out of herself and landed on the floor. Meanwhile, Lindsay, aka the wedding dress girl, was worried because she hadn’t gotten a rose either.

By the time the rose ceremony rolled around, Sean had already handed out 12 roses to numerous ladies, including some of those ladies who were already rumored to be in the top four. With seven roses remaining, Sean decided to give one to Kacie, much to her delight. Sean gave his very last rose to Lindsay, the girl who came in wearing a wedding gown! I guess her sense of humor paid off. Included in the ladies who did not recieve a rose this week were Lauren, Paige, Ashley H., and Kelly, aka the girl sporting the neon orange tan.
