As a huge Bachelor fan for many years, I was beside myself at having the opportunity to go and watch taping of 'The Bachelor: Women Tell All' where all the ladies rejected by Sean Lowe got to come back and see him again, as well as confront each other about things that went down in the house (did someone say Tierra LiCausi?!)
Not to give much away… it's going to go down on the show tonight where sweet boy Sean gets into a heated argument with his number three pick AshLee Frazier—you've got to watch all the drama tonight!
But we got to speak to Sean directly after it all happened where he spoke about why love is going to work for him this time, the misunderstanding with AshLee and the virgin rumors…
And it's Bachelor Week here on OKMagazine.com so check back every day for our exclusive interviews with bad girl Tierra LiCausi where she reveals more about her surprise engagement, AshLee Frazier on how she feels about Sean now, Desiree tells us about rumors she's up for being the next Bachelorette and fan favorite Sarah on her plans to find lasting love.
OK!: How was it seeing all these women for the first time in a long time for the Women Tell All special?
Sean Lowe: It was really good for the most part. I’ve been excited all week because I have nothing but fond memories about everyone. This was such a great experience for me and each one of these women helped make it a good experience and on top of that I was excited to see people like AshLee and Des and Leslie, girls I’ve developed strong feelings for. And I didn’t see the AshLee accusation coming of course which made things difficult but it was still great to see everyone.
OK!: So what was that? A Mars Venus thing?
SL: It must have been. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I certainly didn’t say I don’t have feelings for the other two women because that’s just not true. And not only that, it doesn’t make sense because I had feelings for Leslie, I had feelings for Des, I had feelings for a lot of women. AshLee’s a sweet girl, I’m sure that I probably said something that maybe she took the wrong way but I’m sorry that she’s harboring those feelings.
OK!: Why are you down to these two women in particular?
SL: I feel so natural around both of them. I’m at ease. They’ve seen me, who I really am and not only are they loving and caring, they’re smart, I just love being with them.
OK!: Bachelor relationships have been hit and miss? What do you think is going to make your relationship work this time around?
SL: I don’t pay attention to the track record because I don’t know what the bachelors before me, what their mindset was going into it. I know my heart and I know that I really didn’t let the outside distractions affect me. The exotic dates and destinations and so forth, I was focusing on their hearts and it came down to two women who had wonderful hearts. I’m not saying I picked one of them.. but if I did, I think it will work.
OK!: There have been recent reports about you being a born-again virgin?..
SL: It’s ridiculous how things get out there and then everybody runs with it and I’m tired of talking about it. I guess my stance is, this is a decision that I’ve made that is right for me and that’s all there is to it. I don’t think it’s a big deal. I don’t know why it’s been made a big deal. It’s weird walking through the airport and seeing magazines that say that stuff but if that’s the worst that comes out then I’m doing pretty good.
OK!: What has been your biggest regret this season?
SL: I wish I hadn’t done that shower scene. On the telephone today I talked to my 88-year-old grandmother and she said she had to turn away because she couldn’t watch her grandson in the shower. She was afraid the camera was going to keep going down.
OK!: Were you surprised that Tierra got engaged so quickly?
SL: Yes. I didn’t see it coming but I’m happy for her. Tierra has been beat up pretty good by everybody and a lot of it is probably deserved but she’s not an evil person. She didn’t handle herself well that’s apparent but there’s a lot of good in her too so hopefully she’s learned from the show. I hope she’s happy with whoever she’s with.
OK!: Do you feel you’ve dodged a bullet with her or do you think you could have made it work with her?
SL: I don’t think Tierra and I were a good fit. I’m a pretty drama free guy and certainly drama was following her but the fact of the matter is, with those six women that were left, my relationships with the other women were stronger. So whether I walked in on that or not, there was a good chance she was going to go home at that rose ceremony anyway.
OK!: What are you hoping to achieve with this new platform you have?
SL: I hope people see God through me for one. And I just hope I can be a positive influence on anyone who pays attention but from my perspective I’m still a normal guy and I don’t know if I’m necessarily a role model or a star or anything like that but hopefully people like what they see.
OK!: Walking into that sorority room obviously you’re not a normal guy anymore from the reaction that you got..
SL: That was insane, that was one of the craziest moments of my life and it was so fun to experience that and to surprise those girls. I wish I could do it again that’s how much fun it was. Cruising around with Harrison, having fun, it was a great night.
OK!: You obviously have an amazing body how do you stay in such great shape?
SL: I love nutrition, I love eating healthy and feeling healthy and I love working out so I try to eat organic, I try to eat whole grains, lot of lean meats like chicken and lean turkey and white fish and a lot of veggies an stuff like that. I go to the gym because I enjoy it. Some guys like to play golf or racquet ball or whatever, I love going to the gym and I’ll do 45 minutes of weights and 30 minutes of cardio and call it a day.
