'Bachelor' Sean Lowe wants to wed on TV, joins 'Dancing With The Stars'
Warning: "Bachelor" spoilers ahead. Sean Lowe of "The Bachelor" provided an emotional finale for the reality show with a proposal to contestant Catherine Giudici, which she accepted. Now the couple says they're ready to get married on television and Lowe will be gearing up to join another competition reality show ... "Dancing With The Stars."
During the "After the Final Rose" special, Lowe and Giudici talked to host Chris Harrison about their plans as a couple.
"A marriage follows a proposal," Lowe told Harrison, according to People magazine. "We don't have a date yet, but we have decided that we think it would be cool, since our relationship started and it was developed and cultivated on a TV show -- we'll have our wedding on a TV show. And ABC will cover the wedding."
"Bachelorette" couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum had their wedding air as a television special in December. "The Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison is ordained and officiated the ceremony. He reminded Lowe of this fact during the "After the Final Rose" special.
Giudici said that the couple wants to get married "soon" and added, "I don't see why there would be any waiting period. I want to be his wife."
It was also announced on Tuesday, March 12, that Lowe will be the final cast member in the upcoming season of "Dancing With The Stars," which kicks off on March 18.
Lowe, who is a 29-year-old Dallas businessman, will be partnered up with Peta Murgatroyd. Murgatroyd won season 14 with contestant Donald Driver and "Bachelor" alum Melissa Rycroft won the last season.
When asked if he knew how to dance, Lowe told WABC Television, the sister station of OTRC.com's parent company, KABC Television, "No, No I don't. I don't know how to dance and that's why I'm doing it." Their interview can be seen below.
He added, "I like to challenge myself and the first person I asked was Catherine and she said, 'Yeah, I think you should do it and I'm going to be supportive.' So I've got her in my corner and through this, hopefully, I'll learn how to dance."
The star-studded cast of "Dancing With The Stars" season 16 consists of five-time Grammy winner Wynonna Judd, Olympic athlete Dorothy Hamill, comedian D.L. Hughley, "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump, boxer Victor Ortiz, teen actor and singer Zendaya Coleman, TV actor Ingo Rademacher, gymnast Aly Raisman, "American Idol" finalist Kellie Pickler, comedian Andy Dick and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who was one of the Ravens' stars in their Super Bowl victory earlier this month.Check out Lowe and Giudici interview with WABC Television below.
