The 28-year-old Dallas native with blonde hair, blue eyes and dimples made women all over America swoon when he competed on Season 8 of The Bachelorette. He lost out on Emily Maynard that season, but in reality he may have dodged a bullet. Now he has a chance to have a group of women fight for him on national TV. Given Lowe's popularity from his time on The Bachelorette, there is no doubt that the ladies will do their best to become Mrs. Lowe.
Lowe has been best friends with Forney native Clay Silver for years and the two were once roommates. Clay, his sister Jessie Silver, and their mom, Debbie Silver, were all business partners who opened the The Factory Girl in February 2012. When Debbie decided to step down earlier this year, Lowe took her place as a partner and as the President of The Factory Girl business. Clay Silver is the VP and Jessie Silver is the CEO. According to Jessie Silver, she and Lowe handle the business side and her brother Clay is the creative furniture designer.
The Factory Girl primarily sells handbags and unique pieces of furniture. While Jessie Silver is working on designs for their very own handbag line to be introduced next Spring, her brother and Lowe have worked hard to make the incredible artistry of the furniture pieces become more of a focal point for the store. They know that Sean Lowe's new found fame can only help grow the Forney business, though they will have to be without their partner for a couple of months while he is filming The Bachelor.
ABC has already filmed at Lowe's parents house and around the Dallas area at places where the new bachelor hangs out. There is no word on whether they will eventually film at The Factory Girl, but it is certainly a possibility. In the meantime, Lowe is off to find love, while his friends and business partners hold down the fort in Forney and cheer him on.
Lowe was a fan favorite on The Bachelorette and many were shocked when, after making it to the final three, he was eliminated. Though Olympic swimming star Ryan Lochte was also in the running to star in the new season of The Bachelor, most fans of the show are thrilled with Sean Lowe as the guy who gets a second chance to find love. He has been described by local fans of the show as having a heart of gold, being genuine, and was even given the title of eye-candy.
The 17th season of ABC's The Bachelor does not begin airing until January 2013. Will the Forney businessman do what so few others on the show have done and find true love?
