Wedding planning and Dancing With the Stars training: It's all in day's work for Sean Lowe!
Though Sean's time on ABC's The Bachelor's has come to an end, thanks to his adorable proposal to Catherine Guidici, the reality hunk isn't taking a break from America's TV screens as he's set to compete on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars!
E! News' Alicia Quarles sat down with the happily engaged couple to talk about Sean's new gig and their plan to get married on TV.
While Sean and Catherine revealed to Bachelor host Chris Harrison that their wedding will be televised on ABC, the couple has yet to set a date. "Hopefully soon we'll come up with a date," Sean says of their already highly anticipated televised nuptials.
Sean does admit they were a little hesitant at first about having their wedding televised, saying, "We don't want people to think we just want to be on TV for the sake of being on TV because that's not the case. We just thought it would be special because our relationship was started and developed on TV. We love the people that are associated with The Bachelor who would be associated with the wedding as well."
Though they've yet to discuss the details, Catherine says the wedding will be "fun and special!"
Though the 11 other contestants were announced earlier, Sean isn't going into his Dancing With the Stars journey at a disadvantage. "I have been secretly dancing. Me and my partner PETA [Murgatroyd] have been practicing for the last couple of weeks now," he tells us. "We've had to keep that under tight wraps, of course. We've got our work cut out for us, but I wouldn't count us out! We're putting in a lot of time and effort, Peta's a great instructor and I think we'll be ready for the first time."
As for why he decided to join the show right after wrapping up his stint on The Bachelor, Sean explains, "For me, it was just the challenge of doing it I like embracing challenges and doing things that make me step outside m y comfort zone. Dancing's definitely one of those things!"
Plus, there is one really good perk: "It's cool to learn these classical dances I can use on my wedding day with Catherine," Sean says of his DWTS training. Awww!
