In less than one year, Sean Lowe has gone from reticent Bachelorette Season 8 contestant to the guy handing out roses and looking for love as the Bachelor for Season 17 of ABC’s televised love journey. Sean’s season, which premiered on January 7, 2013, is already chock-full of dramatic hijinks, cut-through competition, and — of course — beautiful women.

In fact, in his first blog of the season, Sean wonders, “will I make it out alive?” Speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment at the Bachelor Mansion in Los Angeles on January 11, Sean divulged his greatest fear — both onscreen and in real life.

My biggest fear was not having a connection with anyone and it being a waste of time. I can tell you that’s not the case. In fact, I get in trouble because I establish relationships with multiple women which makes things very confusing for me. Outside of that, I guess my biggest fear would be not chasing my dreams, settling, and not living the life that I know I’m capable of living.
