Is The Bachelor's Sean Lowe on his way to becoming a movie star? Well, Sean wouldn't be the first person to give Hollywood stardom a try, as the Bachelor stars' track record has ranged from impressive (current E! star Ali Fedotowsky) to not so much (remember Jake Pavelka's acting career? We didn't think so). So will Sean soon be seeing his name in lights?
Sean isn't yet testing out his potential skills as a thespian, but he is starring in a 12-minute non-fiction film for the Christian nonprofit group, I Am Second, which has been released today. In the film, Sean speaks candidly about his why he thought going on The Bachelor "felt wrong," along with his debauchery-filled past.

"Never in a million years did I think I would do a cheesy reality TV show about love," Sean reveals. And while he was skeptical about developing a connection on a show, he quickly developed feelings for Emily Maynard as a contestant on The Bachelorette. "After about four or five weeks of getting to spend time with the Bachelorette, I thought, 'I kind of like being around her,'" Sean says. "'I can see myself being her husband.'"
When he was offered the chance to star as the show's main man, he was hesitant. "It's unnatural to date 25 women at one time, and it felt wrong," he says. "A lot of the time, it felt wrong. I wrestled with it quite a bit, thinking, 'I'm pretty sure God opened this door, but what if he didn't?'"
Sean also talks about his lady-lovin' past. "I would feel extremely guilty [after sleeping with someone], but after that guilt faded, then I would start talking to some other girl and go down the same path of destruction," Sean admits. So he was glad to practice celibacy until marrying Catherine Giudici. "It's been a great thing for me," he says. "I didn't give in to my sinful nature." Atta boy!
