‘Dancing with the Stars 16’ spoilers: ‘The Bachelor’s’ Sean Lowe all but confirmed

Dancing with the StarsYou knew this was coming. After spending the past couple of weeks surrounded with rumors about whether or not he would be appearing on “Dancing with the Stars,” it is finally close to official: Sean Lowe will be following up “The Bachelor” with the hit ballroom competition, where he will be the twelfth competitor on the new season. Wetpaint has reported the news, and we also have sources on our hand more or less have said that this is a done deal. Sean has been preparing for this season for quite some time, with one of the hardest things for him being rehearsing in secret … even after so many other celebrities are getting to rehearse out in the open.

As for who Sean will dance with, his partner is none other than Peta Murgatroyd, who partnered recently with Gilles Marini and has also won the show with Donald Driver.

Ultimately, we wonder just how difficult a decision that this was for Sean to make, given that the last guy to do this was Jake Pavelka, and we all saw how quickly his relationship with Vienna Girardi fell apart only a brief period of time after “Dancing with the Stars” ended. However, Sean and his new fiancee Catherine Giudici seem to have a great relationship, and both of them also appear to be very much beloved by America. As for why Sean would sign up for this so soon, remember this: the guy’s not interested in being a celebrity, but the exposure helps his businesses, and the money that he gets from participating helps to set himself up for many years to come.

Do you think that Sean is going to do a particularly great job on “Dancing with the Stars” this season? If you want to see some more spotlight articles for the show this season, you can do so over at the link here.
