‘The Bachelor’: See Sean Lowe, Catherine Giudici ring in 2014 with a kiss

What's next? -Mrs. Carter: Is it possible that 2014 can top the year before for Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici?

2013 was a pretty amazing year for these two thanks to “The Bachelor.” Obviously, they found each other, and they are now getting set for a dream wedding that will air live on ABC on Sunday, January 26, but what they ended up reaping from the past year goes even beyond that. Sean and his fiancee got the opportunity to travel, have another TV experience with “Dancing with the Stars,” and also set themselves up financially for quite a long time. Just the wedding alone on TV is going to net them a pretty penny (and also a very cool way to “invite” their fans to their special day).

At midnight last night, Sean posted an image on his Instagram account that showed that he is happy to start off 2014 and prepare for his wedding with the same woman that he was with the year before. If you remember, the first few months of the couple’s engagement were under a heavy veil of secrecy. The two had to sit around and watch the episodes, and re-live the entire experience without really being able to walk down the street together. Luckily, that time for them has long gone, and after the wedding they really can start to settle down a little bit into a normal life.

But with all of that being said, we have a hard time believing that they will really be gone from “The Bachelor” franchise forever. As a matter of fact, we certainly expect them to turn up a few times on future specials for further updates on their lives. We have seen that from some other couples, including Trista & Ryan Sutter, who will be the focus of a special that airs a little later this month.
