Although The Bachelor Season 17 is now officially over, Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici will have to put off settling down in Sean’s Dallas hometown a little while longer while Sean competes on season 16 of Dancing With The Stars. As long as he stays on the show, both Sean and Catherine will be based in Los Angeles, where they both recently relocated. So what’s daily life like for the couple now that one set of cameras is gone and another set has taken their place? We checked in with a source close to the couple to find out!
For starters, it was Sean’s idea to relocate in LA — in order to give him a stronger fighting chance in the competition. “He really wants to give it his all,” the source tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “And he knew all the time and energy spent commuting back and forth between Dallas and LA would compromise that. So while he’s on the show, he’s going to live in LA.” Any chance he could stay there permanently? “That’s still to be determined,” says the source. “But most likely both he and Catherine will return to Dallas once he’s done.”
And for now, Catherine’s decided to stand by her man — and is living fulltime in LA as well, having left her job at Amazon in Seattle. “She wants to be close to him and support him,” the source adds. “She’s still working, but she’s freelance now, which gives her the freedom to work from wherever she wants.”
We’ve already told you Sean and Catherine aren’t living together, but you can also put to rest the rumor she’s rooming with her Bachelor BFF Lesley Murphy. “She has her own place,” the source confirms to Wetpaint Entertainment. “But geographically, she and Sean are very close.”
And while she’ll definitely be front and center at every show taping when Sean dances, she gives him his space when he rehearses with partner Peta Murgatroyd. “She has her own stuff going on,” the source adds. “She works and she’s starting to think about wedding plans. She and Sean have said they want to be married sooner rather than later…There’s a lot to be done!”
