Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici touched many people on The Bachelor finale, as their happily-ever-after (for now, anyway) moment warmed America’s hearts.
Justin Bieber’s mom Pattie Mallette got a bit misty-eyed.
So did Jef Holm, last season’s Bachelorette champion.
Although he and Emily Maynard called off their own engagement just a few months after the finale, Holm felt an instant kinship with Sean and Cat.
In a Sulia post entitled “How it feels to be Catherine,” Holm gushed over their wedding plans, looking back fondly on his own (brief) TV love story.
“I couldn’t be more excited for Sean & Catherine to start their life together. I remember like it was yesterday sitting in that same seat,” he recalls.
“It was so exciting to finally let everyone in on the secret,” wrote the Utah native. “Sean is a great guy… I can’t wait to meet Catherine & see them together!”
Here’s hoping Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici fare better than Jef and Emily … or Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson, last year’s Bachelor couple.
Ben also Tweeted props to Sean: “Yo @SeanLowe09, congrats bud! solid proposal my man,” the California winemaker wrote to his successor.
The odds are against it, at least if you base it on those two guys’ experiences, but what do you think? Will Sean and Catherine last?
