Last week could not have gone better. My dates on The Bachelor with Sarah and Desiree were fantastic.
I was hoping to make the same progress this week. I knew I had a fun one-on-one date planned first, but that it might also be very awkward if I didn't choose the right girl. That's why I decided to ask Lesley M. if she would join me on my Guinness Record date.
She was the perfect choice because I felt so comfortable around her from the beginning. Lesley broke the ice on the first night by having me bend over with the football, and I've enjoyed my time with her ever since.
Women like Lesley are hard to find. She is not just sexy, smart and funny, but she's also really easy to be around. I felt like I had known Lesley for years and it had only been two weeks. That's why she was the one I wanted to set the record for world's longest on-screen kiss with her.
The kiss actually really surprised me! I thought kissing for more than three minutes would be awkward and uncomfortable – especially since it took place on Hollywood Boulevard and in front of a crowd of people. But it wasn't. Time flew by and it was much more passionate than I thought it would be. I think that speaks to the chemistry we share.
We ended the date on the rooftop of the famous Roosevelt Hotel. My feelings for Lesley had definitely been growing throughout the date but they were solidified there. We had so much fun together. She had the ability to open up and speak from the heart and then also be really goofy. I loved that about her.
One thing you didn't get to see on TV was at one point, we started feeding each other brownies and making all kinds of inappropriate remarks while doing so. We were laughing hysterically and were left with chocolate all over our faces.
And, of course, the night ended with one of the most romantic kisses I've ever had. It doesn't get much better than kissing a beautiful woman on top of the Roosevelt while overlooking Hollywood as confetti guns are going off. It was a perfect ending to a perfect date.

Sean Lowe is the star of season 17 of The Bachelor, which airs Mondays on ABC. The hunky Dallas businessman and entrepreneur will be blogging about his romantic journey for PEOPLE.com.
I was so happy heading into the dates this week on The Bachelor. With the first cocktail party and rose ceremony out of the way, it was now time to really have fun and get to know the women much better.
I wanted to pick the perfect person for my first date. Thinking about all the women who made a big impression on me the first night, there were so many that I was eager to spend more time with. Yet one woman in particular stood out above the rest. I enjoyed my time with Sarah at the cocktail party so much and I knew within minutes that she was a sweet, caring person – a quality I always look for in women.

Sean Lowe is the star of season 17 of The Bachelor, which debuted Monday on ABC. The hunky Dallas businessman and entrepreneur will be blogging about his romantic journey for PEOPLE.com.
Going into the first night as The Bachelor, I was filled with an excitement that I can't quite put into words. I was so anxious to meet the women and I had so many questions that needed answering. Would I feel a connection with anyone? Am I going to meet my future wife tonight? Can I really carry on 25 different conversations with 25 different women? Am I going to make it out alive?
Those questions, concerns and fears were all put to rest very quickly. The women amazed me. They seemed sweet, funny and gorgeous! Any nerves I had going into the first night were calmed by the unusual and very funny antics of a few women.

After an unpredictable and drama-filled season of Bachelor Pad, it has come down to just two couples – Chris Bukowski and Sarah Newlon, and Rachel Truehart and Nick Peterson – who must rely on the votes of their former housemates to claim the ABC show's $250,000 prize.

The Bachelor can claim another successful match!
Producers Cassie Lambert and Pete Scalettar, who met while working on ABC's hit dating show, tied the knot in Malibu on Saturday – and host Chris Harrison married them.
"It might be a new job for me," Harrison said of getting ordained to officiate the couple's wedding. "They asked me in Prague this season [of The Bachelorette] when we were there if I would do it for them. ... I love them to death and I've seen then grow as a couple and I love them as a couple and as individuals."

All The Bachelorette finales are emotional and dramatic, but host Chris Harrison promises that Sunday's Emily Maynard season closer is the only one he'd describe as "unpredictable and combustible."
"We've never had a horse race like this where any of the final three could have ended up with her and the decision was so down to the wire. It made her an emotional wreck," Harrison tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"Emily was more conflicted about the final two than any bachelor or bachelorette we've ever had. The guys were head over heels for her and she felt so strongly for both of them and that combination made for a very intense final week that could go either way."

While host Chris Harrison calls the Men Tell All specials a rite of passage, Emily Maynard thought last week's taping in Hollywood was "a form of unusual punishment."
"It's torture to make a girl walk into a room full of her ex-boyfriends in ridiculously high heels and an obscenely tight dress, let them ask whatever questions they want and then tape it for national TV," the Bachelorette star told PEOPLE. "Even though I had the best group of guys in the history of the show, I'm glad it's over."
And that's coming from a woman who had to endure less than an hour of the four-plus it took to dissect yet another dramatic season of the ABC show. As always, plenty of fireworks were cut for time, but PEOPLE brings you the best of what you didn't see:

Ever wonder how The Bachelorette remembers all those names at the first rose ceremony, what goes on off-camera at the mansion, or whether Emily Maynard actually drinks at her cocktail parties?
We decided to find out from the man who knows best, Bachelor and Bachelorette host Chris Harrison, when he stopped by our offices. Luckily, he was happy to fill us in on the behind-the-scenes details.

Right after the rose ceremony in London, I went back to the hotel, said goodbye to Ricki and left for Croatia to have more adventures on The Bachelorette.
Saying bye to my daughter was just awful, but right after I left, the babysitter called and said Ricki was already laughing and watching cat videos on YouTube. Clearly, she's her mother's daughter.
People always ask, "Why did you keep the guy with the egg?" I hope that after this date you all got to see what a fun, genuine guy Travis is, and can see why I had such a great time every time I talked to him.
