Catherine Lowe is the only Bachelor final rose winner to actually get married, so when it comes to why other Bachelor couples miss the mark — well she has some thoughts on that.
Catherine and her husband Sean Lowe have happily married and are the proud parents of three kiddos, but that doesn’t exactly mean there was zero trouble in paradise….
“I think genuinely people really want to find love but there’s so many factors involved,” Catherine shared on July 13 on E! News’ Daily Pop on why so many Bachelor Nation couples fail.
“There are so many things against you after you leave the show…I’m really grateful and blessed that Sean and I saw this wonderful life after but I can say that it is really hard to get there.”
So when it comes to the current Bachelorette, Katie Thurston, what are Catherine’s outlook on the on-going relationships?
“I think actually the rate for the guys that receive the first impression rose from the Bachelorettes are usually the last ones standing,” Catherine remarked. “But here’s to seeing.”
Catherine’s “favorite” contestant, Connor B., was kicked off on the July 12 episode. “He was my frontrunner,” Catherine admitted.
“I think Connor B. just handled himself so well at his exit. The guys were crying when he left, so he made a huge impression on all of Bachelor Nation and I’m really excited to see what he has in store for him later.”
In addition, Catherine shared how she felt about the ABC franchise in regards to onscreen representation.
“I always say that the leads have to be genuinely attractive to other races so the guys, or the girls, that are there that are diverse in race will stay longer so that we see more of them,” Catherine continued.
“I think right now Katie is showing that she is attracted to, and wants to, potentially be with someone who is a different race than her, long-term. I think the franchise is doing a better job and we’ll see, but I think they’re being more intentional about representing different types of people.”
