Sean Lowe named the next star of "The Bachelor"
(CBS/AP) ABC says the next star of "The Bachelor" will be Sean Lowe.
The 28-year-old businessman was dumped by Emily Maynard on "The Bachelorette" last season. Now, he'll be the one doing the choosing when the show returns for its 17th edition.
On the eighth edition of "The Bachelorette," Lowe confessed his love for Emily Maynard but was eliminated just before the finale.
ABC says Lowe is ready to look for love again and confident he will find his soul mate. He was a linebacker for Kansas State and worked in finance and insurance before starting a custom furniture business.
"The Bachelor" is hosted by Chris Harrison and returns in January. For a sneak peek at the women competing for Lowe's heart, visit the show's website.
