“The Bachelor” season 17, featuring Sean Lowe as the lucky guy doing the choosing, premieres tonight. As if that were not exciting enough, it has been promised to be “the most shirtless season yet”! Where Sean is concerned, that’s a very good thing, right? But who are the ladies who are attempting to woo him?
The title of this article should give you a clue that I’m going to drop some pretty big spoilers here so you know what to expect if you read on. No more warnings, guys. Game on!
The returning girl is Kacie Boguskie. We already know a little about her from last season’s “The Bachelor” with Ben Flajnik. So let’s concentrate on the new girls we haven’t seen before.
AshLee Frazier is the first girl to meet Sean and perhaps the most excited to see him. “I’m so glad it’s you!” she confesses. Cute!
Jackie Parr plasters on her red lipstick and kisses Sean’s cheek, claiming him as her own. Bold…and somewhat annoying/creepy.
Selma Alameri immediately wipes Jackie’s kiss right off, so that wasn’t scripted at all, was it?
Leslie Hughes seems very excited to see Sean. She tells him he’s even cuter in person and calls him McSteamy. You know, I loved her right up to the corny nicknaming.
I’m not sure what to make of Daniella McBride greeting Sean with a handshake instead of a kiss or even a hug. Perhaps she’s just shy but I can’t see how shy girls would go down well on “The Bachelor” – or why they’d even apply to be in the show in the first place.
Kelly Dutton may be professional musician and dancer, but it is still a pretty awkward meeting when she decides to sing Sean a song.
Yoga instructor Katie Levans may look great in that dress, but why on earth did she turn up in bare feet! Isn’t that just weird?
Ashley Palenkas is the mad woman with the Christian Grey obsession. She yanks a grey tie out of her dress and proceeds to tell Sean what she’d like him to do to her with it. Gawwdd! Taxi for Palenkas. Run, Sean. Run for the hills! (Don’t worry, you can read what happens to Ashley and all the other girls HERE).
Taryn Daniels says she has never seen “The Bachelor”. Yeah right. Then how did she get here? Not sure about this lady after her claim but she was very nervous and even forgot to tell Sean her name.
Catherine Giudice tells Sean “I’m really glad it’s you. You’re such a hunk!” before running away shrieking with happiness and excitement. If you don’t want to know HER big “Bachelor” news, definitely don’t look HERE.
Robyn Howard is the gymnastic one (kinda). She back flips out of the limo but after a couple of impressive flips lands flat on her backside. Gotta feel sorry for her, right?
Lacey Latka is so keen for Sean to remember her name she gives him a piece of lace. Not sure if that was corny or ingenious.
We’ve seen Paige Vigil before, as a super fan on “Bachelor Pad 3.” She is sweet and to me she seems like a regular girl compared to the other contestants. (Read HERE if you want to see if that impressed Sean.)
Amanda Meyer stares into Sean Lowe’s eyes and he stares right back before they share a giggle. She just wanted to get the awkward silence over with first. Smart!
Keriann Miranda doesn’t make much of an impression. She seems excited to meet Sean, though.
Desiree Hartsock, in contrast, does something quite memorable and invites Sean to make a wish with her at the fountain. I wonder what they wished for?
Sarah Herron looks really nervous embracing Sean and a big deal is made of the fact that one of her arms is malformed. To say she only has one arm (as she does, often) is not quite true, but it’s obviously a big issue for her. What will Bachelor Sean Lowe do for her confidence? (Read the spoiler here if you want to find out.)
Brook Burchette walks in full of old style Hollywood glamor, so it will be interesting to see if Sean likes that.
Diana Weeks Willard is cute and Sean seems to appreciate her sweet good looks.
Sean and Lesley Murphy have something in common: they’re both huge football fans! Lesley throws the ball to Sean and he declares, “she’s fun!” But is fun what he’s looking for on “The Bachelor”?
I’ve got my eye on Kristy Kaminski as the Courtney Robertson of this season (although I doubt she’ll be as successful). She’s a model and right off the bat is convinced all the other girls will hate her.
Ashley H is all Southern Belle. Will Sean go for that?
Lauren Marchetti warns Sean that she is a Daddy’s girl and that her papa will break Sean’s legs if he breaks Lauren’s heart. Oh dear. Should Sean be worried? Take a look HERE to find out what happens to Lauren in “The Bachelor” season 17 premiere.
Lindsay Yenter appears in a wedding dress and locks lips with Sea, prompting him to ask, “Now what we’ve made out, can I know your name?” Think she impressed him?
We’ll find out tonight, I guess. Are you excited about “The Bachelor” season 17 premiere?
