LOS ANGELES (AP) -- ABC says the next star of "The Bachelor" will be Sean Lowe, who was dumped on "The Bachelorette."

The network says the 28-year-old Dallas businessman will be the one doing the choosing when "The Bachelor" returns for its 17th edition.

On the eighth edition of "The Bachelorette," Lowe confessed his love for Emily Maynard but was eliminated just before the finale.

ABC says Lowe is ready to look for love again and confident he will find his soul mate. The 6-foot-3 Texan was a linebacker for Kansas State and worked in finance and insurance before starting a custom furniture business.

"The Bachelor" is hosted by Chris Harrison and returns in January.
