Tomorrow is the Season Opener for the New “The Bachelor” on ABC Now You Can Love Monday’s Again!

Sean Lowe, The Bachelor

Sean Lowe, The Bachelor

Ladies, get ready for another exciting season of The Bachelor.

Most of us remember, heart-throb, Sean Lowe from the season of The Bachelorette with Emily Maynard, who passed on “the perfect man” eliminating him and shocking not only Sean but all of us watching.

Now, it’s Sean’s turn to find love and we believe he has his hands full with this group of single ladies.

We’re excited to say that we got to speak with Sean about the next edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelor,” and want to recommend that our Red Carpet Report fans tune in on Monday, January 7, 2013 for the season opener… it’s one you won’t want to miss!

In case this is your first time hearing about the new Bachelor, Sean, here’s some deets: he’s 29 years old and is a successful entrepreneur who lives in Dallas. He’s very close to his family, and a true Southern gentleman. He’d also like to have a big family and is very focused on family values as demonstrated by his relationships with his parents and sister.  Sean is 6’3″ and attended Kansas State on a full football scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. He started in finance and then moved into the insurance industry but now he is the proud owner of an upscale, custom furniture business. Sean loves to camp, wakeboard, dance, be outdoors, go to concerts and have fun with his two dogs, Lola and Ellie.

First Impressions – The Bachelor

Now that you know something about him, you can size up the single ladies as they try to make their BEST first impression Sean. But before you do, check out this fun video of past Bachelor shows and some of the memorable first impressions that happened on the show.

Our Chat with Sean

Operator: Your next question comes from Stephanie Piche from Red Carpet Report.

Stephanie Piche: Hi Sean. I really enjoyed getting to know you on The Bachelorette, and we’re excited to see what happens this season. My question for you is, how many rules are you going to break this time around?

Sean Lowe: You know, I’ve never been one to really conform to rules that are set, so you’re going to see me break quite a few rules, and I did The Bachelor for a specific reason. It was to find the love of my life, and I feel like there were certain points in the season where I couldn’t follow the rules. I had to follow my heart as opposed to the rules, and so I think you’re going to see me breaking quite a few rules this season.

Stephanie Piche: OK. And, what’s the best advice your parents have given you about participating in this process?

Sean Lowe: You know, my parents know me better than anyone else, and they told me, just be yourself and stay true to who you are and then, you know, of course, stay in prayer and everything’s going to work itself out. And, they trust me and they trust my judgment and so they knew that, you know, I would follow my heart, and they knew that I’d represent the family well and ultimately make the decision that’s best for me.

Stephanie Piche: Great… And, one quick question. What’s your pet peeve, stuff that you’ve found with this whole process with these ladies?

Sean Lowe: Oh, biggest pet peeve. Like I said earlier, it’s almost inevitable for this to happen, but it always irritated me when girls would get caught up more in the drama and then they would lose focus on the real reason that they were there. And, you know, of course, I want them to focus on the relationship that we’re developing and not focus on all the other BS going on with the other women in the house.

Stephanie Piche: Of course. Thanks so much and good luck.

Sean Lowe: Thank you very much.

ABC’s Bachelorette Delivers Best of The True Love Story With Wedding Sunday Night!

What was your something borrowed, something blue?

What was your something borrowed, something blue?

Earlier this week, Stephanie, from our Red Carpet Report team, got to speak with ABC’s Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and now husband , J.P. Rosenbaum about their wedding (which will be aired on Sunday, December 16th at 9 PM Eastern / 8 PM Central on ABC).

We still remember the first time ABC aired the first “Bachelor/Bachelorette” show and as true romantics, we have always hoped each ending would be a truly happy ending and after a close call when Ashley was on the 15th edition of “The Bachelor” with Brad Womack, it was lucky number seven of “The Bachelorette”  that Ashley met J.P. and found true love.

Reality TV or Real Deal?

J.P. and Ashley are the real deal. They get how relationships work, because they work at it. Anyone who has been in a successful relationship that has failed or not, know there are perils to any union and making and keeping that love commitment to each other is how things work out for any couple who truly want it to work.

Sunday’s Broadcast

We’ll get to see  some of the past Bachelor and Bachelorette couples, family members and friends who were invited to help Ashley and J.P. celebrate their fairytale wedding. Click here to see more photos from the event on ABC.

Here’s part of the conversation we had with Ashley and J.P. about their new life together:

Operator: Your next question comes from Stephanie from Red Carpet Report.

Stephanie:  Hi guys, congratulations. 

Ashley: Thank you.

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):   I just want you to know I was crying the whole time.

 Ashley:  Wait ’til Sunday.

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):   I’m already crying now, are you kidding?  I’m so happy for you guys.

 J. P.:   If my mom can make it through, you can make it through it.

 Stephanie (Red Carpet Report): Yes OK, alright I’ll try.  I’ll just have a box of Kleenex.

Ashley:  Yes, there you go.

 Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):  What was your something borrowed, something blue?

Ashley:  Oh my goodness, I didn’t do that!

J. P.:   Well we didn’t have any of that.  So Mindy had given Ashley, babe you know those things that you put on the bottom of your shoes? 

Ashley:  I know baby but I only put them after the wedding.

J. P.:   Oh but they don’t need to know that.

Ashley:   No, you know what, I didn’t do that.  I don’t know why.  I’m hoping it’s not bad luck.

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):   It’s just an old wives tale, don’t worry about it.

J. P.:      See babe?

 Ashley:  I know, but I should have done it.

 Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):  Well that’s alright.  What is your favorite thing to do together?

 Ashley:  Oh my goodness.  You know my answer babe.

 J. P.:  Yes.  It’s going to be a boring answer for all of you but—

J. P.:   Sitting home alone, ordering in and sleeping, laying on the couch.  Fortunately we have a really good excuse to do that any weekend we want.  Because once we moved to Princeton, we’re now at least an hour, hour and fifteen minutes away from anything we want to do, whether it’s hanging out with friends and family in the city, whether it’s go to the shore, go to Philly.  So we always have an excuse, oh it’s an hour‑and‑a‑half away.  We can just stay home and hang out on the couch.  I think we really love to do it anyway, so it’s not so much an excuse but. . .

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):  No that’s awesome, that’s good.

Ashley: It sounds terrible!

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):   No.

Ashley:    It sounds terrible, we’re like the grandma and grandpa over here.

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):  And one last question, so what is, any words of wisdom that you have for any future Bachelor/Bachelorette couples that may really find love like you guys have?  How to make it through?

Ashley:  I think the biggest thing is just to be true to yourself and to be true to the way you feel.  Don’t force anything.  Just let whatever’s going to happen, happen.  I don’t know if that’s going to make more successful couples or less, but I just think it’s important from the beginning to just always be true to yourself.

J. P.:   Mm-hmm.

Ashley:  And to not force anything.

J. P.:   Yes.  Over time you are who you are, and over time I think, whether or not it’s the real you or not, when you’re being filmed and on TV, over time the real you is going to come out and it’s at that point—

Ashley:  Right.

J. P.   ‑‑where you’re either going to mesh well as a couple or you’re not.  You know, there’s no, just like in life—

Ashley:  Exactly.

J. P.:   There’s no magic, there’s no magic formula to it, it’s just you work or you don’t.  And we were fortunate enough that we absolutely work.

Ashley:   I also think it’s because we were still ourselves while we were filming, so we got to know the real Ashley and the real J.P. while we were filming.  It wasn’t after the show that we learned things about each other.  You know?  It was during the time.  So we had more time than most people.

J. P.:   I learned a lot about you after the show, I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Ashley:  Oh alright, go for it.  Lay it on me babe!

J. P.:  No it’s a different, it’s a different learning.  Living with someone for, for even three weeks to a month after the show, you learn—

Ashley:  Right.

J. P.:   About somebody, and that’s when we said, you know, our real relationship started, was when we got back and started living together.

Ashley:  Right, right, right. 

J. P.:  It’s just like real life, you know.

Stephanie (Red Carpet Report):    Great.  Thank you.  Good luck to you guys, you deserve it.

J. P.:   Thank you.

Ashley:  Thank you so much.  Thank you.
