Will you accept this rose? That’s right ladies…meet The Bachelor heartthrob Sean Lowe at the Southern Women’s Show!
After falling for Emily Maynard last season on The Bachelorette, Sean knows the time is right for him to make the ultimate commitment to the right woman and to start his own family, as he stars in the next edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, The Bachelor, which premieres January 7, 2013.
Sean, 28, a successful Dallas businessman and entrepreneur, totally charmed Bachelor Nation when he pranked Emily on his hometown date, fooling her into thinking initially that he still lived at home with his parents. This sincere, reliable all-American guy is confident that he will find his soul mate and a lasting, love-filled relationship this time on The Bachelor.
A real romantic, Sean loves to make a woman feel special and, as a life-long Texan, he holds Southern values close to his heart. He wants to propose once, be married once and live a faithful family life.
The 6’3” bachelor went to Kansas State on a full football scholarship and as a linebacker was part of the 2003 Big 12 Conference Championship Team. Sean also received a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Science. Although he started off his career in finance, he followed in his father’s footsteps in the insurance industry before committing to his new enterprise, owning and running an upscale, custom furniture business.
Sean will be on the Fashion & Entertainment stage Friday, March 8 at 2 p.m.
