He is going from the ”The Bachelor” to the ballroom!
After his emotional journey to find love and the romantic proposal to Catherine Giudici on Monday’s Bachelor finale, Sean Lowe confirmed he is joining Season 16 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” during a “Good Morning America” interview Tuesday morning.
Lowe has secretly been training with his new dance partner, Australian Peta Murgatroyd, and the two will appear with the rest of the cast this coming Monday night.
“Hopefully, I won’t make a fool of myself on the dance floor,” Sean joked.
“He’s a great guy and it’s a great story,” says ”Dancing With the Stars” executive producer Conrad Green. “He’s the name on everyone’s lips. It’s really good fun all around.”
“He’s been training and he gets on well with his partner,” says Green. “He’s a charming guy.”
The news comes on the back of the revelation that Sean and new fiancée, Catherine will wed on TV — something we told you weeks ago.
Sean, 29, and Catherine, 26, revealed their plans for the nuptials when they appeared on “After the Final Rose” special, in what was their first time in public as a couple.
“A marriage follows a proposal,” Sean said. “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.”
Sean brought many fans to tears during Monday’s two-hour finale when he gushed to Catherine: “I think the world of you and I miss you every time we have to say goodbye. I don’t want to say goodbye anymore. Catherine, I want to spend the rest of my life telling you, ‘I love you,’ and making you feel like the most special, beautiful woman in the world.”
And then he got down and proposed to a clearly nervous Catherine.
Meanwhile, fan favorite Desiree Hartsock has been revealed as the new “The Bachelorette.”
And the 26-year-old (known affectionately as Des) is ready for the challenges that lay ahead this summer.
“I just can’t even believe I’m here. With the support of everyone, it’s just such a blessing,” she told Chris Harrison on Monday’s special. “I could never have imagined signing up for The Bachelor and having this opportunity.”
When Chris asked her about watching the Bachelor finale, she said: “I’m so happy for them. I could only hope to have the love that they’ve found and I am very hopeful in all of this. And I do hope to meet the man of my dreams.”
