'The Bachelor' preview

Lauren Wang has a preview of this season's 'The Bachelor"

Published  11:22 AM HST Jan 07, 2013

It’s the season we have all been waiting for!  SEAN LOWE is the newest "Bachelor!"

We all remember Sean from Emily’s season.  He was basically a Ken doll with a heart of gold (a.k.a. the perfect guy).

We remember Sean most for his killer abs (OMG) and romantic gestures (ahhh remember when he ran after Emily as she was driving away just to give her one last kiss?).

Sean reveals to us what really went on behind the scenes this season and if he found true love or not.  Plus, we will get the lowdown on all 26 contestants and find out who the mystery woman from is another season looking for love with Sean?  Read on to find out!

Sean is ready to find love on the upcoming season of "The Bachelor."  Even though he got his heart broken by Emily on "The Bachelorette," his feelings were real and he wants to have those same feelings this time around.  He has gone into this experience with an open mind and heart. He truly believes that you can find love on this show.

Sean did have some hesitations, though, but he found his answer by talking with his family and he said he prayed a lot.  His parents told him to be himself and stay true to who he is.   At the end of the day, Sean wanted to find love and someone to marry and spend his life with.   Sean felt he owed it to himself to be the next bachelor.

Sean said he cannot explain what was going through his head as the first limo arrived.  He was anxious and excited.   He said it was scary and fun all at the same time.  As for the "mystery" woman, Sean, of course, did not say who it was but he did say that America will be surprised about who it is -- he sure was!

Sean said that the producers did an excellent job in selecting his 26 women.  The producers got to know Sean really well from "The Bachelorette" so they knew exactly what girls to put on the show.   Sean said they are all wonderful, smart and accomplished.

Sean had no idea that he would get so emotionally attached to so many of the girls.  Sean said all of the women have very unique qualities and personalities.  And, of course, there will be drama (I LOVE it, bring it ladies).  As Sean put it, there are 26 women in one house!!!  And his biggest pet peeve this season -- the women who got more caught up in the drama than the real reason as to why they were there in the first place (I wonder if there will be any "Courtneys" this season.  I sure hope so.

Sean’s ideal woman is his best friend -- someone who he can hang out with every day.  Someone who he just enjoys being with and someone that is smart, funny, has a good heart and is genuine, loving and caring.

He said he would never propose if he wasn’t ready. And he said there was absolutely no pressure for him to do so.

Sean has never paid attention to the track record of past Bachelor/Bachelorettes relationships.  In fact, when some of the alum offered to give him advice, Sean didn’t take it.  He wanted to experience all of this HIMSELF; he wanted to draw his own conclusions.

Sean said we will see a less serious side of him (including a prank or two). And he said he is not good at following rules.  He even goes on to say he breaks a few by following his heart.

He couldn’t say whether or not he is engaged but he did say he hopes that all of the women will be understanding of his position as "The Bachelor."  And if he is engaged, he hopes that his fiance understands that he had to go through all of this (including having feelings for other girls and kissing a few others as well) just to get to her.

We get to be with Sean every step of the way on his way to finding love, so make sure to be there from the beginning on Monday, Jan. 7 at 7 p.m. on KITV.  Follow me at @laurenjwang on Twitter and tag your tweets with #BachelorHI!
