Being The Bachelor isn't what it's cracked up to be for a guy. Well, it is and it isn't. There are still 26 women, often bikini-clad, desperate for your attention.
Still, Sean Lowe says that's more taxing than you might think.
The 29-year-old Dallas native is just one week into reliving his journey, and says it was more physically and emotionally draining than he ever expected.
"It wasn't an easy decision, because when the producers initially approached me, I was still getting over Emily [Maynard] and that was so emotionally taxing,” he said.
"[But] I felt like I owed it to myself to give it one more chance."
In doing so, Sean Lowe found himself even more drained.
On last Monday's premiere, he met plenty of potential favorites, such as Catherine Giudici, and a familiar face in Kacie Boguskie from Ben's season.
Then there were wild cards. He fended off drunk hairstylist Ashley P., but gave a rose to wedding dress-wearing hopeful Lindsay, among other highlights.
"That one took me back. My first reaction was like,'I gotta get out of here. This girl's crazy'" he told E! of his initial reaction to her exit from the limo.
"But after sitting down with her, I realized that she just has a really cool sense of humor and I can appreciate that," he added, keeping an open mind.
Lowe will next try his hand at a variety of dates, including one in which he goes shirtless to pose in a vampire-themed photo shoot, on tonight's episode.
How will that turn out? And who will win his heart at the end? For the latest on the rumored outcome of the season, follow the link for The Bachelor spoilers!
