The Bachelor - Lindsay from Missouri
Sean Lowe aka ‘the Ken doll’ is getting his second chance at love on The Bachelor after he had his heart broken by Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette. This season looks like it is going to be full of catty chicks, drunken drama and some silly moments like starting off the show zooming in on Sean’s buff body and his workout moves. As the first episode begins (after the half-naked scenes of Sean, that is) we are reminded how this sweet and shy man got his heart ripped out by Emily, who ultimately chose Ari over him. Clearly he is better off without Emily (as were Ari and Jeff) so we can confid...
