We spent most of this The Bachelor Season 17, Episode 4 eating our feelings as Sean Lowe macked his way through a sea of ladies, and guys? Things got intense. Mostly because Tierra LiCausi suffered an emotional breakdown (just stay away from staircases, girl), and Sean sent Leslie Hughes packing after buying her thousands of dollars worth of swag. Way to send mixed messages, buddy. It's like his abs were saying let's go, but his heart was saying no.
Sean's taken it to the People blogosphere to dish his manmotional thoughts and feelings about Monday night's episode, and we've rounded up the highlights!
On being rejected by Selma Alameri: "It surprised me because she is so affectionate. After hearing about her mom's beliefs, I completely understood. She was in a tough spot and wanted to kiss me but she had too much respect for her mom. The no-kissing thing made our relationship more exciting because I had something to look forward to. Plus, Selma's heart and personality were more than enough. Selma left with a rose and with a piece of my heart. Once again, I was starting to fall for another woman."
On giving Tierra the rose: "I don't know what it was about Tierra, but I definitely felt a connection with her that goes back to the first night and I didn't like seeing her upset. Once again, I did my best to reassure her of my feelings. I'll admit my decision to give her the rose was a symbolic Band-Aid. I wanted Tierra to be happy and I wanted to fix whatever was wrong with her. Isn't that what boyfriends are supposed to do? It was obviously a rash decision that was not received well by the other women. But please keep in mind I had not seen the Tierra they had."
On Leslie's absurd use of "Holy Moly": "I think she said 'holy moly' at least a dozen times because of the extravagance of the date and she was grateful to be on it with me. I really enjoyed my day and had fun shopping with her. The conversation was effortless and she made me laugh a lot, but I never found the spark I was looking for. Sending her home was one of the more difficult things I had to do all season because I knew she didn't see it coming. I admired and respected Leslie for so many reasons, but I knew she wasn't the one for me."
On kissing Catherine Giudici: "She told me she wanted to kiss me but couldn't while the other girls were in sight. She was so nervous that she buried her head in my chest and wouldn't look up. After a few seconds I told her, 'It's okay to look up,' and then we had our first kiss. What you didn't see was her excitement after. She was giddy and suggested that we frolic – definitely the first time I received that request, so I obliged. We skipped around the driveway ... and then played Dungeons and Dragons (not really)."
Um, sorry you guys, we were just transported to heaven. A heaven where everyone frolicks (our favorite term –– WE LOVE YOU, CATHERINE) and plays ‘90s LARPer games.
