Out with the Ben, in with the... Sean Lowe!

While we still have a ways to go until Season 17, we can’t stop ourselves from speculating about the next season of The Bachelor. We can’t help it. They made us this way!

The Bachelor machine is already filming — first at the LA mansion and then in Canada, but we've got a ways to go before we see the saucy shirtless action happen on our small screens. When will The Bachelor Season 17 start? The "most shirtless season ever" will premiere on Monday, January 7, 2013, according to show creator Mike Fleiss. 

Off to the races! For those of us who can't wait all the way until 2013, check out the first promo below. For those of us who are spoiler-inclined, click here to find out if Sean Lowe is engaged!
