BACHELOR 2013 UPDATE: Sean Lowe proposed to Catherine Giudici in Thailand in the Fall of 2012, and it was aired on the finale of The Bachelor on March 11. Lucky for lovers of love, the happy couple plans to marry very soon on ABC. Makes sense, since they fell in love on TV!
Bachelor 2013 contestant Catherine Giudici (full name: Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici) was one of two finalists out for Bachelor Sean’s heart in the reality show’s 17th season. The 27-year-old mixed-race beauty is Filipino, Swiss, and Italian, and hails from rainy Seattle, Washington. So far, Catherine has revealed two super-traumatic events in her life to Sean: Her father attempted suicide in front of her when she was 14 years old, and she witnessed a tree falling on — and killing — one of her childhood friends. Yikes. Is she too damaged to be ready for love?
Of her feelings for Sean, Catherine says, "I've never been in a place to accept great love from a man like Sean. And I'm totally ready. I want to be with him." Guess she’s ready for love!
Before she went on The Bachelor, Catherine worked as a graphic designer at Amazon and blogged about vegan food for Seattleite.com in her weekly column "Meatless Mondays". Catherine has also done a stint on Seattle Weekly's "Street Team", and worked for quirky Seattle advertising agency, Wexley School for Girls. According to her Seattleite bio, Catherine became a vegan after eating "copious amounts" of exotic meats on a trip to Kenya. Eww. Though that sounds pretty hardcore, she's not a super-strict vegan, and cheats on her diet for special occasions only. We can respect that!
Catherine graduated in the class of 2004 from Roosevelt High School, and then went on to graduate from Washington State University in 2008. She has two equally gorgeous sisters, India and Monica. Her mother Cynthia lives in Seattle and works as a special education teacher and a Filipino historian. Her father Carey lives in Taiwan and works with a Buddhist humanitarian organization called Tzu Chi.
