Former 'Bachelor' Sean Lowe is doing what he can to help other Texans impacted by the devastating flooding in Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Lowe, who lives in Dallas, took to Twitter over the weekend to try to find a boat so he could help rescue those stranded by the flood waters.

Despite criticism that his plea was more of a publicity stunt than a genuine effort to help, Lowe said he was able to borrow a boat from a fellow good Samaritan.

Monday afternoon, Lowe posted a series of photos to Instagram showing him in Houston and shared his thoughts on the experience.

"Today I had the chance to do what I could to help some people in the Houston area," Lowe wrote. "I couldn't believe the devastation. My heart broke for all the elderly who are immobile and the mothers trapped in their homes with young babies. But I was encouraged by the selflessness of so many Texans who came to help where they could. Definitely a day I'll never forget."

Lowe appeared as The Bachelor on the ABC show in 2013, proposing to contestant Catherine Giudici in the season finale. The pair married in 2014 and has one child together.
