Fans were heartbroken this week on The Bachelor, when Sean Lowe chose to send Sarah Herron, a favorite this season, home after things seemed to be going well between them. In an interview with reporters, Sarah dished on her experience, and whether or not we may see her as the next star of The Bachelorette?
The Bachelor‘s Sarah Herron proved this season that having one arm certainly does not mean she has less heart, less beauty, or less enthusiam. Sarah was a fan favorite, and many of those fans were angered when Sean surprisingly sent her packing this week – with no real explanation – I mean, they looked like things were going well between them. In an interview with the media today, Sarah Herron shared her thoughts on the show, and her future. Check out the interview below.
On whether or not she has any regrets:
I have never, ever regretted one moment of participating on The Bachelor. It was an incredible experience for me. I learned so much about myself and what I am looking for. In no way do I regret any of the process. It all has helped me become who I am today. It’s all part of the learning curve of life.
On being blindsided by Sean Lowe:
I definitely did not expect to be going home. I was caught very off guard. I had intentions of taking Sean home, to meet my family. The week prior in Montana, Sean said he felt his relationship took a step forward with a few girls and back with a few other girls. Deep down, my concern was that I was one of those girls he took a step back with. We were then in the process five weeks or so, where it become difficult to keep developing this relationship, while he is also developing relationships with other girls.
Was Sarah embarrassed when Sean pulled her aside:
I had very strong feelings for Sean, and I think it’s human nature to feel embarrassed when you’re dumped on television and you cry and let yourself be as vulernable as I let myself be. I never let America, or my friends, or coworkers see me as I did on the show. It’s embarrassing to put it all out there and someone didn’t want to take it in. It’s hard.
Sarah agrees with Sean’s decision of not waiting until the rose ceremony: I think Sean handled it the best way he could. He and I did have conversation at one point, and I told him: “I am one of these girls that you ever feel the relationship is taking a step back, I want to talk about it and know about it. I don’t wanna be the last girl standing at a rose ceremony without a rose, shocked.” He knew I was looking for an explanation, and that’s what he gave me. He respected my wishes. I mean, I am not happy with how things turned out, but I respect how he handled it, and I don’t think he could have done it better.
Sarah Herron’s thoughts on Tierra’s hypothermia:
We were all very very cold, but knowing Tierra the way I know her now, she is a very high intensity person. Put her under a lot of pressure, combimed with what she’s going through emotionally, and it all combusted. Whether she had it or not, I don’t know. At this point, I don’t really care. The rest of us had no problem embracing the cold, and it seemed over dramatic when she did that.
Getting the first one-on-one date:
I think getting the first one-on-one date, as incredible and magical as it was, was also kind of a curse. I mean, I had to sit back and wait for him to develop these relationships with all the other women. Each week, a new girl was stepping into the forefront. So with each week, it became more and more difficult to sustain a connection while he was being introduced to all these other women. It gets really hard after a while.
On Selma’s departure:
I have no idea what Sean’s real reasons were for sending Selma home. I am sure there are more reasons than I know. I definitely think that her not participating in the polar bear plunge contributed to it. He wants a girl that can go with the flow and is down for some adventure. I can’t blame her though, and I don’t think Sean blames her, it’s just who she is. For whatever reason, they didn’t work out. I am not sure, but I am sure there is plenty of good reason.
Who Sarah feels is the best match for Sean:
You know, watching it back, I am really starting see the chemistry build between Sean and Catherine, which I didn’t see while I was in the filming process. Watching back, I am seeing a special connection between them that is undeniable. What I am seeing between them looks great. Whoever he chooses, I think it will work out – he is not in it to mess around. Sean is the type of guy who is going to be very selective. He wants to make sure it will work.
And if Sean chooses Tierra:
I don’t see Tierra and Sean being much of a match at all. I think he’s surprised watching it back now. He didn’t see what we saw in the house. He made that clear in Tuesday’s episode, and he was starting realize that he was finally seeing the Tierra that the girls were seeing. If he chooses her, I don’t see that lasting.
On whether or not Sarah Herron may be the next Bachelorette star:
I would have to seriously consider it. As I mentioned earlier, the experience was one of the most life changing experiences of my life. I learned more about myself than I could ever imagine. You know, up until this show, I never walked around talking about my arm to anybody. Anybody. And now I can freely talk about it. However, I don’t want to just sit around and talk about my arm forever. I don’t know if I could do another whole season of that. But at the same time, I want to find love. I’m still single. I want a boyfriend, I want a husband. I want to find that special guy. There’s a lot to consider if it were offered.
Should Sarah Herron be the next star of The Bachelorette?
