Mrs. Carter: Sean Lowe is finally getting to speak his mind publicly, and this time through something not directly affiliated with “The Bachelor.”
There is no question that the reality star has benefited greatly from the ABC franchise no matter how you want to look at it. The show has provided him with fame, a decent amount of money, and an opportunity to find the love of his life in Catherine Giudici. It even allowed the two to have their dream wedding without it breaking the bank in the process (or even really touching the bank at all). But even with all of this gratitude, there still comes emotions and opinions that occasionally need to addressed.
Speaking about some of this in a new video for religious testimonial series “I Am Second,” he explained a little bit about why he decided to ultimately go on a show that he did not initially apply for (his sister signed him up for “The Bachelorette”), even though there were many parts of it that did not line up with his personal beliefs. He also explained that when he was “The Bachelor,” there were still many issues that he battled:
“It’s unnatural to date 25 women at one time and it felt wrong a lot of the time. A lot of the time it felt wrong … I wrestled with it quite a bit thinking, ‘I’m pretty sure God opened this door but what if he didn’t? What if it’s just an opportunity that just came around and what if I’m actually harming my testimony by going on a show and dating multiple people at one time and kissing multiple people?'”
One other interesting thing that Sean comments on here, aside from Catherine Giudici (who is now going by Catherine Lowe), is the public’s fascination with his sex life, and how it was eventually made out to be a circus after he said he was staying celibate until marriage. He never said that he was a virgin (as he wasn’t), but he was still pegged that anyway thanks to a few comments that got into the press:
“It was just a firestorm. I mean, every tabloid had me on the cover and they labeled me as ‘The Virgin Bachelor.’ They were just going to view me as a weirdo.”
Even if you don’t share many of Sean’s religious beliefs, the video below is still fascinating just to get another perspective on the show, and proof that there is not something in the water of the “Bachelor” mansion that turns people into lifeless zombies.
