With each coming episode on The Bachelor Season 17, we fall more and more in love with Seattleite Catherine Giudici. The 26-year-old graphic designer is equal parts compassionate and playful, thanks in no small part to her big, close-knit family. In St. Croix, Catherine told Sean Lowe about how her dad, Carey Giudici, tried to kill himself in front of her and her sisters when they were teenagers. While Carey now lives abroad, he remains close with his three daughters, and was proud of Catherine’s decision to share that tumultuous bit of family history on national TV. “She’s a strong beautiful soul,” Carey wrote on Facebook.

In The Bachelor Season 17, Episode 8: Hometown Dates, we meet Catherine’s two sisters, Monica and India, who protectively grill Catherine about whether or not her feelings for Sean are genuine. We were instantly fascinated by Catherine’s sisters as soon as they appeared onscreen — as it’s clear that this is one beautiful, brilliant brood.

Here’s what we know about Catherine’s sisters. Her oldest sister, 29-year-old Monica Teal Giudici, got her B.A. from Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, and is now a teacher in San Francisco. India Giudici, 25, lives in Colorado and, according to her Facebook profile, works at Durango Discovery Museum — and seems to be the most overtly outdoorsy of the bunch.

What do you think: Were Catherine’s sisters too hard on her about Sean, or would you have done the same?
