The Bachelorette[]

Sean was the third-place finalist on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette. He went on two one-on-one dates with Maynard and one group date. In the ninth episode, Sean told Maynard that he was falling in love with her. Emily offered him an overnight date card to spend more time with him, but he did not stay the night as it didn't line up with Emily's beliefs and the example that she wanted to set for her daughter. Lowe was eliminated that same episode, despite being a front runner throughout the competition. He was heart-broken on the limo ride home.
