Sean Lowe isn't a man of many words (he's a man of many abs), but did you know he's a secret literary genius? Welcome to the wonderful world of Sean's  People Bachelor Blog, a fabulous place where all your fantasy fiction dreams come true. Plus, we love that Sean is giving us a sneak peek into what he was thinking during the Season 17 premiere!

"I was filled with an excitement that I can't quite put into words," Sean muses. "I was so anxious to meet the women and I had so many questions that needed answering. Would I feel a connection with anyone? Am I going to meet my future wife tonight? Can I really carry on 25 different conversations with 25 different women? Am I going to make it out alive?"

Answer: probably not. Though apparently Sean had a lovely time during his first cocktail hour! "Any nerves I had going into the first night were calmed by the unusual and very funny antics of a few women," he says. "The woman who made the biggest entrance of the night had to be Lindsay. The girl showed up in a wedding dress! My first thought was that she was crazy, but I quickly learned that it was just her quirky sense of humor and she wasn't afraid to put herself out there."

As we know (wait, no we don't) being in a room with 26 potential lovers can make a dude hungry — but fear not. Sean took care of business. "There came a point during the evening when I had to get away for a few minutes by myself to eat and decompress," he says. 

So, what do we have to look forward to next week? We'll leave you with this tasty tidbit: "my photo session with a group of vampires." Um, we want to go to there.
