Fans have been watching the back-and-forth with “The Bachelor” people as various names were bandied about for the lead spot in the 2013 season. Several names were rumored to be under consideration, and earlier this week Reality Steve spoiled that Sean Lowe would be the guy. Thursday, Sept. 13 E! News shared that their sources are saying the same thing: Sean Lowe is “The Bachelor 2013.”
According to E! News, a production insider confirmed that “Sean is our choice.” While the show doesn’t officially begin filming for another 10 days or so, Reality Steve’s spoilers indicate that filming for Sean’s intro package has already been taking place in Dallas. Reports actually surfaced in late July that Sean would be the pick for the show, but then it seemed the showrunners took a step back and considered other options before settling on Sean Lowe.
The irony and comedy is not lost on “The Bachelor” spoiler fans that after so much drama between show creator Mike Fleiss and Reality Steve, they now picked a bachelor that lives in the same town as Steve. Of course much of the show will be taped in other locations as they travel the world, but it’s not going to be too difficult for Steve to confirm some of these early details when it’s happening practically in his own backyard.
People are definitely buzzing about the choice of Sean Lowe as “The Bachelor 2013.” As is the case every season, not everybody is thrilled. Fans hope they show Sean’s humorous side, which can be seen in his Twitter banter, and many wonder how his conservative, religious side will mix with the debauchery that is typical for the show. There will surely be plenty of spoilers along the way, and ABC’s “The Bachelor 2013” premieres in early January.
