[WARNING: The following story reveals the winner of ABC's The Bachelor. Read at your own risk].
After a wildly popular season, The Bachelor's Sean Lowe has made his choice and proposed to the woman of his dreams.
Attention, ladies! Bachelorette winner Jef Holm is back on the market again.
The one thing a potential guilty pleasure can't afford to be guilty of is boredom. Just look at the current standard-bearer: ABC's outrageous Scandal, with its whiplash plotting and rat-a-tat-tat dialogue delivered at such hyperspeed you don't have time to dwell on the berserk absurdities, because you're having such a blast. NBC's tepid new mystery-soap hybrid Deception (10/9c) deceives itself if it thinks it belongs in that gonzo company. It even pales next to the diminished second season of Revenge, which needs to refocus on the Emily-vs.-Graysons dynamic and forget the Initiative — yawn — ever existed.
Bachelor fans expecting Sean Lowe to be a quiet, simpleminded Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes will be pleasantly surprised when the 17th season premieres on Monday.
"[People who think,] 'Crap, he's like vanilla toast,' — well, he's not," host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "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. "
Bachelor premiere by the numbers: 6 things to expect from Sean's season
Sean Lowe may have had his heart broken on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette, but he's back and sexier than ever as he searches for love on the new season of The Bachelor.
On the latest installment, which debuts Monday, Jan. 7 at 8/7c on ABC, the 28-year-old Texan will narrow down the field of 26 women before handing out his final rose. But Lowe isn't just the All-American boy-next-door we previously saw. Instead, viewers will also see that he's funny, he loves showing off his bod, and he isn't playing by the rules. Since TVGuide.com got an early peek at the premiere, we're sharing what to expect, by the numbers, from the newest season.
