The Bachelor’s Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are not only convinced they’ve found everlasting love on ABC, they’re planning on getting married fast!
They’re also planning on tying the knot Bachelor style. Televised.
“It’s just fitting,” Sean Lowe says of fast-tracking a TV wedding.
We’re sure it is, but that it’s also motivated by two factors:
- ABC paying them an ass ton of money to do so.
- His unwillingness to get it in before marriage.
That will light a fire under them for sure!
In any case, Catherine Giudici, 26, says she can’t wait to wed ASAP: “Everything in ourMore >
By now, fans have likely read (or deliberately avoided) The Bachelor spoilers floating out there for months now … but if you haven’t, well, buckle up!
With only three women left, speculation is reaching a fever pitch. Who does Sean Lowe get engaged to on the March 11 finale, and are they still together?The Bachelor Preview: Fantasy Suite Overnight Dates

Ali Fedotowsky, you can calm down now.
With rumors circulating over Roberto Martinez being cast as the next Bachelor, and with a $500,000 paycheck reportedly sitting on the table if he were to accept, sources tell Star Magazine the reality star has turned down ABC’s generous offer.
And he did it for love.
Martinez is dating a 26-year old model named Kara Ramos and insiders tell the tabloid the two “really like each other.”
Ramos has even confirmed the dalliance to Star and added that she told Roberto he had to make a choice: The Bachelor or their relationship.
Martinez then “decided thatMore >
The Bachelor and The Bachelorette spoilers seem to always leak, but the cast members are always on legal lockdown before, during and after the show.
This fact makes it hard to believe recent reports that this year’s Bachelor winner, Courtney Robertson, is planning a tell-all book about the experience.
According to In Touch, Ben Flajnik’s fiancee wants to “address misconceptions” about her name-calling, top-dropping, man-eating, “winning” ways.
No other Bachelor or Bachelorette cast member has ever gone off the script by airing juicy behind-the-scenes details … most likely because ofMore >
Ali Fedotowsky, who chose Roberto Martinez on The Bachelorette two summers ago, is said to be less than thrilled about rumors that say he’s in talks to be The Bachelor.
Roberto and Ali split after 18 months together, and sure enough, he’s being talked about as the star of Season 17 of The Bachelor, slated for early January.
“Roberto never shared his side of the breakup, and Ali is terrified about what he would say on the show and how she would come off,” a source explains.
Who knows why she would care about a breakup that wasn’t even that bad (supposedly), now that she’s faded from theMore >
Is Roberto Martinez next in line to star as The Bachelor?
Martinez, the former fiance of Ali Fedotowsky, who was The Bachelorette star before Emily Maynard and Ashley Hebert, is rumored to be returning to the franchise.
Roberto would be the first non-white Bachelor or Bachelorette ever, which would be an interesting angle, and he’s obviously familiar with the show.
Will it actually happen, though?
Even though Life & Style is reporting that that Martinez already signed a contract to appear in Season 17, insiders say nothing has been signed as of yet.

The producers of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are not exactly coming up roses in a new lawsuit from two African-Americans who auditioned last year.
They were turned down, allegedly, because of their race.
According to court papers, the two plaintiffs went to a Nashville hotel to audition, either as The Bachelor star or as contestants on The Bachelorette.
Christopher Johnson, an aspiring NFL player, claims when he arrived a producer asked him what he was doing there … then shunned from the process.
Johnson and the other plaintiff, Nathaniel Claybrooks, both say they were taken to theMore >
Lamar Hurd, a Portland sportscaster, is lobbying – and has already garnered great support – to become the first African-American star of ABC’s The Bachelor.
According to his professional-looking audition video (below), Lamar’s assistant Tammy first came up with the idea to submit an application on his behalf.
“Let’s say I wanted to go on it, and was willing to do it, they haven’t even had a black Bachelor,” Lamar said of his initial resistance to apply. But he did!
If the video tells us anything, it’s that Lamar Hurd is clearly telegenic, comfortable onMore >
The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik is further elaborating on the controversial photos that show him apparently hooking up with other women during his recent split from Courtney Robertson. His explanation? A little dubious, at best.
Of the image that shows him clearly grabbing a female’s rear end and kissing her, he says it was an old friend – and just a friendly butt pat, not a full-on, “I am attracted to you in a sexual manner” style arse grab. Mmmyeah.
The curvature of his hand does not suggest patting, but whatever:
“I have not hooked up with another woman – on my father’s grave. ThoseMore >
Lindzi Cox feels no animosity toward Ben Flajnik for rejecting her on The Bachelor finale Monday. That said, she did get in a nice dig at Courtney Robertson.
“She was nude a lot,” Cox said today on Good Morning America.
“Maybe if I went skinny-dipping I wouldn’t be here with you.”
Despite being sent home at the final rose ceremony (below), the 27-year-old development manager says of Ben Flajnik, “I wish him nothing but the best.”
“At the end of the day, yeah, maybe it was really tough on me for a little bit, but he made a decision, it was what’sMore >
It’s all come down to this.
After months of speculation over The Bachelor spoilers and controversy swirling around a woman who has left an indelible mark on the show (for better or for worse), Courtney Robertson squares off with Lindzi Cox for the final rose.
Who will Ben Flajnik give it to?
The next three hours will reveal all as the two ladies go on their last dates with Ben in Switzerland and he makes the proposal that brings this season to an end.
After he does, the After the Final Rose special will catch us up on Ben and his fiancee’s current status. We’ll be here throughout withMore >
The Bachelor season finale and After the Final Rose special air on Monday.
All eyes will be on Ben Flajnik and his fiancee … whomever that may be.
If you want to know who we think it is, check out The Bachelor spoilers page we’ve put up and updated throughout the season. But it doesn’t sound good …
From the magazine cover above, you’d assume that Ben was not only dumped by either Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox already, but he selected the wrong woman on The Bachelor finale, and there’s a nude video scandal lurking.
That would be probably one-third true.

Ellen DeGeneres has – to quote Chris Treager from Parks & Recreation – quite litch-rally inserted herself into the ongoing reality TV cat-fight that is The Bachelor.
In a funny new video, the talk show host splices actual footage from the Monday’s confrontational Women Tell All special and puts herself in the hot seat.
Much like the controversial Courtney Robertson was in real life, Ellen finds herself on the defensive amid a barrage of allegations, name-calling and worse.
Costumed like a stereotypical Bachelor girl, sporting sparkling earrings and an equally glittering jacket, she admitsMore >
Ben Flajnik proposes to either Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox on the March 12 season finale of The Bachelor, to be followed by the After the Final Rose special.
Not a moment too soon for the star, who has been miserable throughout the filming and aftermath of the hit show and reportedly hated his reality TV experience.
According to sources, Ben taped the Women Tell All episode and was taken aback by all the bitterness, and overheard griping about the show during the taping.
“Ben was talking to the producers and when they asked if he would do the show again he said ‘No way! This was theMore >
