Bachelor” alum Sean Lowe took up his own rescue effort in Harvey-pummeled Houston on Monday.

The Dallas resident posted a picture of himself driving a boat through the area in an effort to help.

“Today I had the chance to do what I could to help some people in the Houston area,” he 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.”

Lowe, who appeared on Season 17 of the reality show, made his way to the storm-ravaged area from his home in Dallas, where he lives with his wife Catherine (who accepted his proposal in the 2013 “Bachelor” finale) and their 1-year-old son, Samuel, People reported.

“I knew you were my favorite bachelor for a reason! Heart of gold!” one fan wrote in his Instagram, which also included a few photos Lowe took of the flooding.

But Lowe isn’t the only Texas celebrity to rise to the occasion. Houston Texans star J.J. Watt organized his own fund-raising campaign that has hauled in more than $1 million so far. Outside of Texas, Kevin Hart encouraged his famous friends to donate to hurricane relief.
