Bachelor Sean Lowe is going to be on DWTS, giving the ABC reality show star a chance to get a wedding ring and a mirror ball trophy all in the same year.
The network announced Tuesday that Lowe was joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars. Fresh off his engagement to Catherine Guidici, Lowe will find a new partner in Peta Murgatroyd, who has won the dancing reality show with partner Donald Driver.
The 29-year-old Bachelor is joining other dancers like country singer Kellie Pickler and boxer Victor Ortiz.
Fans of Lowe just watched him propose to Guidici after narrowing down his field of suitors to two. He chose Guidici over Lindsay Yenter, proposing to her on a trip to Thailand.
“I think the world of you and I miss you every time we have to say goodbye. I don’t want to say goodbye anymore,” he told her. “Catherine, I want to spend the rest of my life telling you, ‘I love you,’ and making you feel like the most special, beautiful woman in the world.”
As he got down on one knee, Guidici beamed with excitement.
“Is this for real?” she asked. “I’m so happy… I am so grateful to have met somebody like you. I’ve never been so comfortable about myself and with somebody.”
The rest of the cast of DWTS was announced on Good Morning America back in February, though Sean Lowe was not on the official cast listing. This led to speculation of whether there was a last-minute change, but it turned out that ABC was timing its announcement with the finale of The Bachelor.
Bachelor Lowe will have stiff competition on DWTS. The show features Olympians Aly Raisman and Dorothy Hamill, and athletes in rhythmic sports like gymnastics and figure skating tend to excel on the show.
