A Former Bachelor Hilariously Weighed In On The Controversial Season 23 Pick

Some fans of The Bachelor have expressed their dismay regarding ABC's pick for the upcoming season. It was recently revealed that Colton Underwood of The Bachelorette had been selected as the twenty-third Bachelor. Weighing in on the controversy, and the choice of star, is a man who is familiar with the series and its fans. That would be Sean Lowe, who starred in The Bachelor's seventeenth season. Taking to Twitter, Lowe shared his thoughts with a concise message. See it for yourself below:

So, there you have it. Sean Lowe is supporting Colton Underwood. The latter has taken part in both The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. Underwood appeared on the most recent season of The Bachelorette, which starred Becca Kufrin. And Kufrin was a contestant on the most recent season of The Bachelor, wherein she was given the final rose and became engaged to Bachelor 22, Arie Luyendyk Jr., to be broken up with by him on-camera, so that he could pursue the "runner-up."

As you can tell, there is a complicated web when it comes to the Bachelor franchise. For his part, Colton Underwood came in fourth for Becca Kuffrin's hand. He went on to try his luck at romance on the spinoff series Bachelor in Paradise, which did not end in an ongoing relationship, as you probably guessed given that he is starring in the upcoming season of The Bachelor. Fans curious over his romantic fate will have to tune in and see if he succeeds.

In response to Sean Lowe's tweet, Colton Underwood replied writing "virgins unite." Underwood has been outspoken about his status as a virgin. Hopefully for Underwood, he can manage to find the lasting joy Sean Lowe has found with his now-wife Catherine Lowe née Guidici, whom he proposed to at the end of his season of The Bachelor. The couple now has two children.

The marriage is testament that despite the shows' rocky track records, couples from The Bachelor franchise can find lasting happiness with their pick on the show. When the announcement was made on GMA, Colton Underwood shared that he was excited about his new role and hoping that his next excursion into reality show love would end with the desired result. And maybe, it will.

Three could be his lucky number. He will be on Season 23 and this is his third trip on The Bachelor franchise. There could be something there and he must trust that the show can find him his special someone for life.

The twenty-third installment of The Bachelor will premiere in January 2019 on ABC. For what's new on television this fall, check out CinemaBlend's guide to TV's fall premieres. To check out the other new shows coming to ABC only, you can look through the network's fall premiere schedule here.
