'The Bachelor' 2013: Sean Lowe chosen for season 17
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Fan favorite Sean Lowe has been chosen as the star of "The Bachelor" season 17, which begins in January.
Lowe was a contestant on the eighth season of "The Bachelorette," featuring Emily Maynard. Maynard eliminated Lowe before the season finale, which shocked Lowe and viewers. Lowe had confessed his love for Maynard shortly before his elimination, and Maynard had referred to Lowe as "the perfect man" all season long.
Lowe, 28, is a successful Dallas businessman and entrepreneur. He started off in the insurance industry before starting up his own upscale custom furniture business. He says he wants his first marriage to be his only marriage.
