Worst kept secret ever…

As many of you have probably read by now, Sean has been announced as the new Bachelor.

What do we think? I have to admit that I’m still processing. I did a word search on some of my old posts from Emily’s season and this is what came up:

Sean trots over to Emily wearing a navy v-neck, hot pink shorts and his favorite pair of Toms. Ames would be so proud.

Sean leans in for a kiss and gropes for either a thigh or Emily’s butt. He lands somewhere in the middle.

Most of the time Sean never shared his true feelings (which I think were legitimate) and when he did, he was reading them.

I’m not sure what to think about Sean. He had me with the turquoise plaid pearl snap and then lost me with the jeans that had bedazzled embellishments on the butt.

Of course, after several gratuitous shots of Doug and Sean changing into kilts and sleeveless, tight Under Armor shirts my mind was quickly distracted by bulging biceps and six pack abs.

Sean actually broke his log. Insert dirty joke here.

He rides through the streets of Prague on his white horse (okay, he was running) shouting, “EMILY” at the top of his lungs.

Should we be nervous about his lack of spontaneity? Or do the biceps outweigh that? Will he wear bedazzled jeans again? Or will I learn to love his fashion choices? Why do I miss Ames all of a sudden? One thing’s for sure…he’s no Roberto. Is that why I’m a bit disappointed? What do y’all think?

Although I voted Melba Toast, I’m sure ABC will pay him gobs of money to act shamlessly on TV. So it’ll still be Melba, but with a schmear of something that can probably only be identified under a microscope…

Sean is very good-looking. And he is as kind/endearing as the day is long…BUT I can’t stand watching him kiss. Images if him “slobbering on Emily’s face” are still seared into my memory.

I need a 4th option – “Heck no, I’m not excited!! This means he’s not available for me anymore! Worst news ever. :(“

Kissing lessons? I would volunteer but I’m married.

Came to your website as soon as I saw!! Ok, he’s definitely nice looking, I just hope his eye twitching condition thingy went away:)

And also, I thought they were going to pick a random non-former-contestant this time! I would have much prefered that.

I need a 4th option – What happened to Roberto as Bachelor? Or Ryan Lochte?

I’m tired of the reuse, recycle, rehot tub Bachelor cast. I stopped watching after Brad II.

If it was someone brand new (or Roberto) I would have watched. Now I’ll just continue to read your recaps every Tuesday and skip watching the show.

Agreed….the boy needs kissing lessons in the worst way. Someone…please.

He seems sweet though…I’m sure they have someone evil and demented lined up to lead him astray….

Melba year. We need new people on these shows, I’m done with recycling!

I wonder why ABC handled this whole Bachelor announcement so abysmally? They’ve got to know it’s just being slowly leaked and that any official “announcement” they make at this point will be incredibly anti-climactic. (Almost as anti-climactic as Sean :)). I wonder if there is some grand (devious) plan, or if they’re just clueless.

P.S. According to Reality Steve…Sean really DOES get kissing lessons during one of the episodes?!? Yuck.

I needed an option 1a or 2a. 🙂 I am in between the “HE IS HOT” and “Melba Toast” category. LOL!

I agree they need to stop this recycling nonsense. Or how about recycle one dude and have a new guy and have both of them try to find love among the same 25 girls! HA HA! That would make for lots of drama and probably a lot of “disinfecting of germs” for all of us watching.

But, it’s a train wreck show and I just cannot stay away…PLUS your re-caps are spectacular!

I was really hoping Sean would pull a “Chris L.” and turn the gig down due to his awesomeness. That being said, I was pretty refreshed by Emily’s season. Maybe Sean will turn out the same way. At the very least, it’s still a great excuse to get together with the girls and drink some wine!

Sean was a sweet guy and I liked him on Emily’s season. However, the recycling has got to stop. Oh how I wish we, the readers of Lincee’s blog, can have some say on who we keep company with for the better part of three months. They haven’t had a brainy-hot guy in ages. Isn’t there some sort of screaming hot detective out there with a master’s degree?

Oh my gosh, the last two brainy-hot guys were Lt. Andy and Dr. Travis Stork, that’s 5 years ago! (Unless you want to count Matt Grant, which I don’t)

Sean? Seriously? Good looking, but so, so blah. I was really hoping for Ari!!
