It’s a hard gig being the Bachelor, as Sean Lowe knows full well. Courting a bunch of ladies on television might look like a cushy job, but only until the man of the moment can really appreciate the strain of heavy emotions, a speedy timeline, and all the conniving antics involved. It’s not all hot tubs and making out, with a bonus a fairy tale ending...

Sean wrapped filming for the ABC reality show back in November 2012, and has been closely guarding any news about an engagement ever since, but that doesn’t mean the tabloids have silenced the rumor mill — or that Sean’s lost his sense of humor.

A recent Life & Style article asserts Sean is being “duped” by contestant Tierra LiCausi, who the mag alleges may seem all sweetness and light in their one-on-one time, but is a witch in real life. Sean got his hands on a copy of the magazine, Instagramming the above photo with the caption, “Apparently I’ve been duped,” feigning shock in a grey henley.
