Sean Lowe is apparently wandering the beaches of Malibu half-naked. In short: The world is exactly as it should be. The shirtless Bachelor looks ecstatic in this photo tweeted by Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss, who’s been giving us some pretty vivid glimpses into the next season on Twitter. Case in point: This juicy photo of Sean making out with Lesley! Now, 23 hours later, Sean is back in the shirtless saddle again — this time, on a beachy date in Malibu. Quick, someone get the Malibu Shores theme song out of our heads...

Sean is already in his second week of filming, having met his gorgeous crop of girls on September 24 at the Bachelor mansion in Los Angeles. In just seven days, Seanie’s scaled a building, made out with two different girls (and counting), and already sent his first girl home (on September 29).

While The Bachelor Season 17 doesn’t premiere until January 2013, we’re grateful to have visions of shirtless Sean Lowe dancing in our heads.
