Meet Sean Palmieri, the only bachelor in 'Selling The OC'

He made a pretty candid reveal about his love life during dinner with O Group co-workers

Sean Palmieri is making a name for himself in real estate and reality TV. No offense to the original series, but the Selling Sunset spinoff in the OC has been the talk of the town thanks in large part to the new cast, including Sean. (Oh, and that $100 million+ listing.) 

Although viewers are kind of consumed by the Tyler Stanaland-Kayla Cardona drama, everyone's starting to shift their attention towards the O Group's only bachelor. So who exactly is Sean and what do we know about the 29-year-old agent?

The Florida native decided to swap one sunshine-filled state for another. Upon graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in advertising, Sean first stepped into the real estate industry in Miami, but eventually moved cross-country to pursue other avenues.

Before he landed in the Oppenheim office, he was the head of luxury marketing for Coldwell Banker Global Luxury in Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles. All of these factors add up to an impressive resumé, and his O Group Profile (opens in new tab) states: "Over the years, Sean has acquired an extensive amount of knowledge and valuable skills working alongside California's top agents and brokers to represent multi-million-dollar luxury homes in Bel-Air, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, Malibu, Orange County, San Diego and more."

But that doesn't necessarily mean his career has been a walk in the park. In fact, Sean gave a sneak peek of his vulnerable side when speaking to the TODAY Show (opens in new tab),  and he confessed how stressful the industry can be. 

"I think it’s key to always take time for yourself. This is a very, very intense industry. (There’s) a lot going on. It really does play with your emotions," he told the outlet (opens in new tab). "You could be close to getting a deal and literally 10 minutes later it’s not going through. So, always remember to put the emphasis on your health and your mindset."

Where can you find Sean Palmieri on Instagram?

In his free time, you can catch Sean working out, traveling and indulging in his foodie side, all of which are on full display on his Instagram account, @sean.palmieri (opens in new tab). We do catch quite a bit of photo ops with his co-workers, too—like all the Alexes (Alex Hall, Alexandra Rose and Alexandra Jarvis, if you needed a reminder). Glad to see drama-free photos with the colleagues, right?!

Who is Sean Palmieri dating?

Ah, the million-dollar question! We're not entirely sure who the O Group bachelor is linked to currently—there aren't any traces of an S.O. on social media at the moment—but he did make a candid reveal about his love life during a pizza party with co-workers.

"You guys know, I've dated girls, I've dated guys. As of right now, I think they're both equally crazy," he said. 

He admitted that he doesn't have a preference, so time will tell how matters of the heart play out for Sean. Perhaps we'll see him with someone in Selling The OC season 2?! It seems plenty of excited fans are willing to take the title of "bachelor" off his list.
