TV recap: 'The Bachelor' Sean Lowe surprises viewers on season 17 premiere

Sean Lowe, ABC's 17th season "Bachelor" was full of surprises on Monday's season debut. The Dallas, Texas, 29-year-old who originally appeared as a bachelor on Emily Maynard's season of "The Bachelorette" gave away 12 stay-on-the-show roses before the traditional elimination rose ceremony. One bachelorette received a rose before all the women had even arrived at the first-night cocktail party. Sean handed out just seven roses at the elimination ceremony. Also surprising was the arrival of a former bachelorette who was allowed to stay on the show, bringing the count to 26 instead of 25.
