Sean Lowe is upset that he was voted off on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show after eight weeks ... but at the same time, he's not TOO upset.
The Bachelor hunk said, as the results were revealed, "It's always going to eat at me. I wish I performed better last night, but overall I'm proud of myself."
Next up? A well-deserved breather the exhausted star.
"This whole thing is a lot to handle," he said of his ABC reality TV run. "I've gone from one show to the next the last 12 to 14 months, something like that."
"It's nice now that I can take a deep breath."
First on his agenda: Catherine Giudici.
"We'll definitely take a vacation, relax, spend a lot of good quality time with her because Dancing has consumed my life these past few months," he said.
"We're going to do a couple of weekend getaways and then we talked about doing one big vacation. We're definitely going to take advantage of the summer!"
While Catherine Giudici has been by his side throughout DWTS, the lovebirds have been dogged by breakup rumors ever since The Bachelor ended.
Perhaps now they can disappear for awhile ... or not. If you believe the "diva" reports about Sean, he'll be looking for a new show to be on any second.
