DFW's Sean Lowe to be next 'Bachelor' (update: It's official.)

Posted 3:12pm on Tuesday, Sep. 25, 2012

On Monday, we told you about credible rumors that Dallas' Sean Lowe, who was born in Arlington and played football at both Irving High School and Arlington Lamar High, would be the next Bachelor. ABC has made it official (see? -- we told you the rumors were credible) -- with a press release this afternoon.

"A heavy sigh went out from millions of viewers as they shared Sean Lowe’s heartbreak when Emily Maynard – who all season long called him the 'perfect man” -- made him the last bachelor eliminated before the finale of the eighth edition of The Bachelorette," the release begins. "It completely blindsided Sean, who finally had been able to admit to Emily that he was in love with her. Now, after falling for Emily, Sean knows the time is right for him to make the ultimate commitment to the right woman and to start his own family."

Lowe, 28, is described as a Dallas businessman and entrepreneur (find out more about him here) who's a real romantic who "wants to propose once, be married once and live a faithful family life, like his parents, who have had a loving 35-year union." (Those are just highlights; you can read the whole thing here.) Here are some of the women he'll have to choose from.

The Bachelor will have its season premiere in January on ABC.
