"My feelings for Emily were very real, and they were very authentic and genuine," Lowe previously told reporters. But now, he's looking forward to a whole new adventure, tweeting details about the premiere on his Twitter account.

"It's almost here! And despite what you see in the first 10 minutes of tomorrow night's episode, I do eventually wear a shirt," he tweeted Saturday night.

Today , he added, "I'm looking forward to everyone's tweets tonight! I promise you'll love tonight's episode!"

"The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison told TV Guide that Lowe, who makes custom furniture,  is far from plain vanilla. "People will be surprised by his personality and charisma, and he's also got an edge to him. He's not afraid of confrontation or saying the wrong thing," Harrison said.
