Sean Lowe's schedule is filling up quickly. He became engaged after he proposed on last night's final episode of ABC's "The Bachelor," has signed on for a season of "Dancing With the Stars," and is planning a televised wedding. Yep, according to Lowe, he will be marrying his bride-to-be in front of ABC's cameras as soon as this summer.
Lowe told Chris Harrison on "After the Final Rose" last night that the network would cover the wedding.
The blonde Texan proposed in the finale of "The Bachelor," and the lucky lady said yes. It was down to Catherine and Lindsay, but which did he pick as his future wife?
Spoiler alert: Do not keep reading if you TiVo'd or DVR'd the show and plan to watch it later.
After turning down the other finalist, Lindsay Yenter, Lowe read a love note from Catherine (whose last name is Giudici -- for now), which seemed to confirm the decision he had already made: he wanted to make her his wife.
This was not the first exchange of written affection between the couple. Earlier in the episode Giudici revealed to Lowe's mother that the two had been passing the notes back and forth throughout the taping of the show. How sweet!
When it came to the final rose ceremony, Giudici donned a gold gown and stared longingly into Lowe's eyes before he popped the question with a Neil Lane ring.
Earlier this season, Giudici told Lowe she never thought she'd be with a hunk like him and that she used to be teased for being fat. It's nice to see fairy tales do happen!
As for "Dancing With the Stars," Lowe joined the cast this morning. We'll keep you up to date with details of the couple's televised wedding as soon as they become available. We're dying to see what the Seattle-born bride will wear.
In other "Bachelor" related news, one of the eliminated ladies from Lowe's season was selected as the next "Bachelorette": Des (Desiree) Hartsock. The fan favorite was confirmed as the next leading lady last night.
Thoughts on his proposal? Did he pick the right lady? Let us know in the comments.
