We’ve watched so many couples fall in love & then sooner split from Bachelor Nation. Catherine Lowe reveals why ‘it’s not easy’ for these relationships right off the bat.
Tayshia and Zac, Katie and Blake, Ashley and JP, the list goes on and on! So many Bachelor Nation couples have fallen in love in front of our vision and gone on to split once they leave the reality TV bubble. However, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici Lowe have “endured” versus the many odds stacked versus them, and have remained happily married since 2014 without meeting on the 17th season of The Bachelor. “When Sean came into our relationship, he knew he was single-minded to me, he knew he was tied to me. And yeah, it was going to be nonflexible to retread to having a relationship in front of a lot of cameras, and a lot of people to scrutinize you, but he really tried to show me I was his number one, and at the end of the day, it was him and me,” Catherine gushed on the HollywoodLife Podcast while discussing her partnership with Wyndham Grand. “We were on top of whatever else was happening virtually us.”
Following the recent shocking split of engaged Bachelorette alums Tayshia Adams and Zac Clarke, Catherine shared her insight on why these Bachelor Nation couples struggle to make it work post-show. “Already, there’s a disadvantage for the couples, right when they plane get engaged considering the viewers are putting them on a pedestal, and thesping that just considering they got engaged, and they fell in love on a TV show, that they will endure normal circumstances as a couple,” she explained. “I think a lot of factors are versus them. They don’t come from the same city, they don’t know what a normal routine looks like. They don’t plane have each other’s phone numbers, they don’t get to see each other for a potential four months in public. So it’s not easy right from the start.”
Catherine admitted the reason she and Sean have “endured” is considering “when we said yes at the engagement, we both felt that was once saying ‘yes’ to a marriage.” She continued, “we knew that it was a serious commitment, he would never propose to me if he didn’t know that he was going to be his wife.” Now, three gorgeous children later, Catherine and Sean are an example of what trappy romance can come from The Bachelor franchise!
Catherine spoke to HollywoodLife while promoting the new Wyndham Grand Reconnected initiative. “What I love well-nigh what Wyndham Grand is doing is that they’re inspiring families to be well-matured on have no distractions during their time together,” she detailed. “In the last year and a half, we’ve probably only communicated through phone calls, FaceTime, etc. And now, if you’re comfortable, you’re worldly-wise to come together and hug each other and spend trips together and do all of these really cool, seasonal holiday things as a family and get reconnected.”
