"The Bachelor" played out in St. Croix on Monday night and now Sean Lowe is telling what really happened when he and six beauties, including outcast Tierra, took on this island paradise. Thanks to Sean's blog on Feb. 12 in People magazine, fans have been given clarity as perceived by the hunky Texan who ran down what occurred during his four dates while visiting these tropical climes.
His first foray out was with AshLee who Sean considered "a front-runner" ever since the pair went to Magic Mountain in Los Angeles. He calls her "sweet, loving, and compassionate" but still has reservations since he doesn't seem to have as much fun with this lady as he does with some of the others.
Could it be the control issues that come from AshLee's traumatic childhood?
Yes, Sean thinks this might be it. What happened to her earlier in life has made it tough for AshLee to really let go, "allowing herself to have fun."
While it isn't certain how much fun the two had on their TV date in St. Croix, Sean did learn a lot about what is really going on with Tierra while he's not looking. He found this to be "a huge relief" and feels that AshLee's confession regarding Tierra's antics "took a lot of courage."
That confession clung to Lowe when he and Tierra were out and about in the Virgin Islands. Although the two had a good time, Sean was starting to see that perhaps this girl is not the one for him. After all, with Tierra comes drama. Lots of drama.
On his group date with Deseree, Lindsay and Catherine, Sean was in his element as this trio always makes the most out of a situation, causing fun to be the operative word of the day when the quartet took a Jeep tour of St. Croix. Not sure who to present with the group date rose, he finally handed the bloom over to Lindsay because "she was so supportive, patient and encouraging throughout the entire journey."
Sean's final date with Lesley made Lowe realize this girl could be his best friend but not his wife. He was stunned when he realized she was in love with him, and confused as to how she had reached that point.
As for his visit with his sister on her birthday, this was a highlight for the Dallas-based bachelor who wanted to give Shay a gift she would always remember. After all, Shay was the one who signed Sean up for the TV gig in the first place.
Beyond that, Shay had warned her brother even before his time on "The Bahelor" began that he should stay away from anyone who was into drama. That would be Tierrra, who continued her hysterics to the point where Sean had to say good-bye to this distraught young lady in the Virgin Islands.
He says, "I still believe Tierra has more good in her than people see, but I also recognize that she doesn't have the maturity or social skills necessary to make it on 'The Bachelor'."
As for the other person Sean Lowe sent home during the episode that took place in St. Croix, well, the man of the house was confident about who that should be. He let Lesley go during the rose ceremony because of her inability to open up. He didn't get to see her emotional side, and so that was that for the lovely lady everyone in the house seemed to like so much.
However, as "The Bachelor" Sean Lowe finished up his notes on the St. Croix dates and subsequent dismissals in his People magazine blog, he mentioned he is "incredibly excited" for the chance to take part in the hometown dates. Stay tuned.
