Despite the protests of Bachelor Nation, Sean Lowe won’t take credit as the best Bachelor ever. His favorite? Jake Pavelka. Though the Season 14 star stole hearts as a dreamy commercial pilot, fans were shocked when Jake picked infamous Vienna Girardi over America’s sweetheart, Tenley Molzahn. Not surprisingly, the romance didn’t last long; Jake and Vienna broke up in summer 2010 after a messy split aired during Ali Fedotowskys Bachelorette season.

So what could Sean possibly like about Jake? Well, both tall, gorgeous blondes are known for their laid-back ways. Though their taste in women is clearly different — bottle blonde Vienna over cute brunette Catherine Guidici — their seasons focused on quality over quantity (or at least seemed to until that final decision, Jake).

Both Bachelors also love to dance, going immediately from one hot ABC show to another. Jake starred on Season 10 of Dancing With the Stars while darling Sean spent eight weeks shaking his groove thang during this year’s Season 16.

No word on whether the bromance is mutual (Jake didn’t chime in after Sean’s recent nod on Twitter) but either way, we hope Sean and Catherine end up happier than Jake and Vienna!
