LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Sean Lowe, a 28-year-old Dallas businessman, has been named the Season 17 star of "The Bachelor," ABC announced Tuesday.

The new season of the dating competition series "The Bachelor" is to return in January.

"Having fallen in love on 'The Bachelorette,' this sincere, reliable all-American guy is confident that he will find his soul mate and a lasting, love-filled relationship this time on 'The Bachelor,'" a synopsis said.
