Can you believe hometown dates are around the corner? It seems like just yesterday that Sean Lowe was waxing his chest in preparation for The Bachelor, and now there are a mere handful of ladies left in his tribe of wandering nomads. Sigh, time flies when your sticking your tongue down people's throats.

Next week, Sean will pick four lucky lasses to accompany him on hometown dates, where he'll meet n' greet their families and get to know them on a more intimate level. Sean will jet over to AshLee Frazier in Houston, Lindsay Yenter in Fort Leonard Wood, Catherine Giudici in Seattle, and Desiree Hartsock in sunny Newport Beach. But which of these gals will be excommunicated from The Latter Day Church of Sean?

That would be Desiree Hartsock! We know, consider us hart-shocked (see what we did there?). This means just AshLee, Catherine and Lindsay will accompany Sean to Thailand, where they'll get a chance to light up his life in the fantasy suites....

Also, who else thinks Sean should be the next pope? Just saying, Benedict XVI retired for a reason.
