One of the worst moments of my young adult life happened this past summer. I had just gotten a kitten and opted to stay home with it instead of going out with real people. While said real people were out, they ran into Sean Lowe, took pictures with him, and crushed me with those pictures via social media. Quality time with a new kitten is okay, but a profile picture with Sean Lowe: priceless.
So it should come as no surprise that I’ve been waiting with bated breath for tonight’s premiere of The Bachelor, partly because of Sean, but mostly because The Bachelor is way more entertaining than The Bachelorette. The girls on these shows are insane. Courtney from the last season was unreal, but so were so many of them. Remember that girl with the blog who totally freaked the first night?
Also, Kacie B. is coming back this season. If Kacie B. doesn’t immediately ring a bell, she made it to the final four during the 16th season of The Bachelor with boring Ben, then got cut, then came back to warn him that Courtney is terrifying.
Upon hearing the news, Ben tweeted, ““Kacie B. is back for Sean’s season?! Ha, I love the producers on this show (you know who you are). I wonder how she is going to do with Sean? I will be watching. Good luck KCB.”
What does that mean, “you know who you are?” Ben is such a tween girl.
I’ve given up pretending that my television tastes have risen above shows like The Bachelor, but if I hadn’t abandoned the hoax, I could at least use the excuse that Sean is a Dallas man, and I’m just trying to support local reality celebs.
Will Sean Lowe find true love? Of course he will; it’s The Bachelor! But which of the new crop of crazies will it be? That’s worth tuning in for.
Season 17 of The Bachelor premieres Monday, January 7, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
