Bachelor Star Sean Lowe Blogs: I'm Looking for Lasting Love

Originally posted 01/07/2013 04:00PM

Sean Lowe is the star of the new season of The Bachelor, which debuts Monday, Jan. 7 on ABC. The hunky Dallas businessman and entrepreneur will be blogging about his romantic journey for PEOPLE.com.

Wow! I'm really The Bachelor. It still doesn't feel real.

It seems like just yesterday I was chasing Emily Maynard down the streets of Prague and wondering how she stole my heart when so many people in my past have tried and failed. But it wasn't yesterday – and now enough time has passed to allow my heart to mend and give me perspective and understanding as to why Emily made the best decision for both of us.

The question I'm most often asked is, "Why do you need to be on The Bachelor?" It's a fair question and I'd probably ask the same thing to someone else in my position.

Jef Holm Challenges DWTS Star Karina Smirnoff to a Dance Off in Hollywood

Dancing – and gaming? – with the stars?

Bristol Palin, Gilles Marini, Karina Smirnoff, Jef Holm, Holly Madison and more celebrated the launch of Ubisoft's Just Dance 4 at Lexington Social House in Hollywood on Tuesday.

Fresh off the set of Dancing with the Stars , Marini challenged fellow all-stars contestant Palin to a dance off, but she refused.

"No! He'll beat me! Gilles has the best moves!" she said.

Bachelorette winner Holm was more than up for a challenge! He took on both DWTS' Karina Smirnoff and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson.

Although he attended the event without fiancé Emily Maynard, he assured everyone their relationship remains strong despite breakup rumors.

"Jef said he and Emily are extremely happy and the rumors are false," an onlooker said.

A pregnant Madison also got in on the fun and was overheard talking about possible baby names.

"The names she and boyfriend Pasquale Rotella are debating are definitely unconventional," a source says. "But they're straying away from anything trendy or common most people would choose."
