Sean Lowe Voted Best 'Bachelor': 7 Former Stars Who Should've Beat Him Out (PHOTOS)

Mary Hawkins | May 9, 2013 TV

Sean Lowe

Uhhhhh, what? I'm not exactly sure how it happened, but somehow Sean Lowe was voted best Bachelor out of all of the dudes and gals who have held the coveted title of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.

Yep, People magazine did a poll -- and Sean wound up with 40 percent of the vote, making him the most loved contestant of all time.

How in the heck did that happen?

Sure, Sean's a really nice guy and his season was adequately entertaining -- but I wouldn't go so far as to call him the best of the best.

Nope. Not even close. If I had to choose one guy as the best Bachelor out of all of the guys who have tried their hand at finding love on TV, my vote would go to one of the dudes in the photos below for sure.

Who would your pick be?

    Um, swoon. Yes, I still have the hots for Andrew. Always have, always will. He's smart. He's sexy. He owns a winery. The end.

  • Bob Guiney

    Duh. Bob was like, the best Bachelor ever simply because we laughed our way through his entire season. And one more thing -- how shall I say this politely? He banged pretty much every chick in the house, and they all knew it, and none of them cared. (That's reality TV gold, people.)

    OMG! Love Charlie. L-O-V-E. Who can forget him getting all weepy and romantic when he picked Sarah Brice? He's so hot. And his brother is a celebrity. Cool.

  • Matt Grant

    OMG. The British accent? Yeah, it had me glued to the TV hanging on Matt's every word. Sexy. As. Hell. (He should really be The Bachelor again.)

  • Andy Baldwin

    Take another look at his photo. It tells you all you need to know.

  • Brad Womack

    That's right. I'll admit it. I dig Brad, ok? I can't put my finger on it, but there's something about him I find a little irresistible. And he was The Bachelor twice, for crying out loud, so that gives him a leg up on Sean.

  • Ben Flajnik

    If nothing else, Ben was definitely the easiest Bachelor to make fun of, mainly due to the hair. But he owns a winery, which evens things back out and makes him sort of awesome.
