‘Bachelor’ Preview: Host Chris Harrison Says New Season Is ‘Fantastic’ (VIDEO)

Sean Is 'The Bachelor'
Popular 'Bachelorette' star will carry the torch.
Fans of The Bachelor should prepare themselves for another “fantastic” season, according to host Chris Harrison.

“I’ve seen the first couple of episodes. It’s fantastic,” Harrison said in the video, above.

What makes this season so special? Harrison says a lot of it has to do with the Bachelor himself, Sean Lowe.

“He’s great. he’s kind of a throwback to what the show was made for,” he said. “If you put a star and a cape on that guy, he’s Captain America, for crying out loud — but with better abs.  And, yes, he will have his shirt off a lot.”

“He’s maybe the most sincere guy we’ve ever had on the show.”

Not a bad endorsement.

Lowe, 28, became famous on last season of The Bachelorette, on which he competed for the heart of Emily Maynard. He was ultimately eliminated during a trip to Curacao, much to the decry of millions of fans.

The Bachelor season 17 (!) premieres Monday night at 8PM on ABC.
