THE BACHELOR, ABC, Reality TV
In the dramatic Season Finale of ABC's THE BACHELOR, Sean Lowe prepared to make one of the most difficult choices of this life. His search for love was narrowed down to two very different women, Catherine, a 26-year-old graphic designer from Seattle, WA and Lindsay, a 24-year-old substitute teacher from Fort Leonard Wood, MO.
After having his family meet the two women in spectacular Chiang Rai, Thailand, and under immense pressure, he made one final, heart-wrenching decision and chose and fell in love with Catherine, leaving Lindsay to ponder, 'what went wrong?'
Lindsay spoke by phone about her heart-breaking journey on the show, what's ahead for her and why she chose to wear a wedding gown for her first meeting with Sean!
What was going on in your mind when you first realized you weren't the one Sean was going to propose to?
You know, every girl doesn't want to get their heart broken. So when I realized that I wasn't going to be Sean's pick, it was hard, you know. I wanted to make sure that I got the closure that I needed to get. But it was a really tough situation.
It was really hard, but I had to make the best of it and stay strong, and confident. But there's like a point where you wonder, what went wrong, what happened? So it was hard. It was really hard.
On this week's 'After The Final Rose' it was announced that Desiree was going to be the next Bachelorette. Is that something that you would have done if the opportunity had arose?
You know, I'm very, very content with my normal life. I've got a wonderful teaching job where I live. And I really just want to focus on my career now as a teacher.
Were you a little disheartened that you were not asked?
No, not at all. I think that the producers and I are all on the same page that this was a great experience being on The Bachelor, but I really just want a normal life. And I love teaching and I love the normal stuff. I'm not really looking to be on another TV show.
I think your first appearance on The Bachelor in a wedding gown may go down as one of
the classic moments in Bachelor history. How did you come up with that idea?
Well, I was actually under the weather. I had a really bad sinus infection and I wasn't feeling the best. So the producers and I were discussing how can we make a big impact and then go hide in the corner and be sick?
So we were thinking about what represents me? What do I want the most in life? And I really want to be wife and a mother. So, we thought that was a fine way of showing Sean that.
Do you feel like all your questions and concerns were answered during 'After the Final Rose?'
I do. I think it's a hard situation, but you just have to follow your heart. It was hard seeing Sean. He didn't necessarily directly answer all the questions but he did a good job of expressing when he realized that I wasn't the one. And it definitely gave me closure.
