For most of America, the name Sean Lowe will always and forever be synonymous with great abs. During his time as the 2013 Bachelor, Sean probably spent more time with his shirt off than on — and no one was complaining about it one bit!

These days, however, Sean’s six pack isn’t quick as drool-worthy as it once was... at least, according to the man himself. (Yeah, we’ll believe that when we see it...)

“My dad just sent me some old fitness pics of myself,” Sean tweeted on May 29. “I needed a good wakeup call. Time to get back after it!”

Arie Luyendyk, Jr., one of Sean’s best friends from The Bachelorettewrote back almost immediately, “@SeanLowe09 you're so fat, really it's gross haha”

That was total sarcasm, right? Knowing how these guys talk to each other, it seems pretty clear Arie is kidding.

Sean, however, played right along with the joke. “@ariejr I know man. Starting to get a dickiedoo” he wrote.

Okay, so we’re just going to let you go ahead and ask Google what “dickiedoo” means. We’re too busy trying to remove an image that’s now been forever burned into our brains. Thanks for that one, Sean. Thanks a lot.


One small comfort: At least Arie feels our pain. “@SeanLowe09 I googled it... This concerns me,” he tweeted. “Wait don't you endorse hydroxycut .. No excuses man! #dickiedoo

Okay, real talk: We’ve seen some of the photos from back in Sean’s days as a fitness model. They frighten us a little bit. No one should be that shade of orange, ever. And look at his muscles. There’s ripped... and then there’s just plain ridiculous.

To paraphrase Bruno Mars: Sean, you’re amazing... just the way you are.
