Last night, Sean Lowe chose Catherine Giudici to be his fiancé in The Bachelor season 17 finale, and he got a new reality gig: dancing! Lowe must be walking on air, with only the possiblity of bad ratings threatening to rain on his parade. So how many people tuned in to see Sean get on bended knee?

It wasn't the lowest-rated Bachelor finale in recent years, but it's definitely near the bottom: 10 million viewers watched Sean choose Catherine. That's a ratings rise from Ben Flajnik's finale (9.9 million), but compared to other recent Bachelor finales Sean's episode is on the lower end of the list.

Let's take a look:

Brad Womack, season 15: 14 million
Jake Pavelka, season 14: 13.9 million
Brad Womack, season 11: 11.6 million
Jason Mesnick, season 13: 10.9 million
Sean Lowe, season 17: 10 million viewers
Ben Flajnik, season 16: 9.9 million

Last night's After the Finale Rose special drew more eyes than the actual Bachelor finale, with 11 million viewers. 

What did you think of the season finale?
