Did you know Sean Lowe is practically a superhero? So says The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, anyway. And considering how much time they’ve spent together, during The Bachelorette Season 8 and The Bachelor Season 17, who else but Chris would know Sean well enough to have discovered his secret identity?

While sipping champagne at the Palazzo Las Vegas’s rose christening ceremony, Chris opened up about this season’s Bachelor: “If you put a star and a cape on this guy, he is Captain America, with better abs.”

Does this mean we can look forward to seeing Sean engaged in some wicked crime fighting or feats of derring-do? Well, we can already tell you that one of his one-on-one dates involves rappelling down a skyscraper like Spider-Man!

Chances are, Chris is merely comparing Sean’s physique with Cap’s. We can’t say we disagree with that assessment. “And yes, he will have his shirt off a lot,” Chris added. Well, obviously. If Sean does have any special powers, it’s his superhuman ability to make us swoon every time he exposes his pectorals.
