Good one, Tom Bergeron. On Dancing With the Stars Tuesday, April 16, the co-host jokingly announced the wedding date of Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici.
During the show, Bergeron told co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, "My understanding is that the marriage ceremony of Sean and Catherine is schedule to be broadcast on ABC in August. Based on what I've seen between him and Tristan [MacManus] tonight, I don't know. Maybe not." (Lowe and his partner Peta Murgatroyd danced with Chelsie Hightower and MacManus on Monday. The two guys jokingly had a bromance during rehearsals.)
He then announced, "The next one who is safe, but maybe not with Catherine, is, Sean and Peta."
A network spokesperson tells Us Weekly, "It was a joke."
Though Bergeron was only joking, a Bachelor wedding could be coming soon. Giudici, a 26-year-old graphic designer, relocated from Seattle to L.A. while Lowe competes on DWTS. She and born-again virgin Lowe are waiting until marriage to cohabit. In the After the Final Rose special in March, the couple told Chris Harrison that they will tie the knot soon.
"We don't have a date yet, but we have decided that we think it would be cool, since our relationship started and it was developed and cultivated on a TV show –- we'll have our wedding on a TV show. And ABC will cover the wedding," Lowe said.
Giudici also added that it would be happening "soon." She explained, "I don't see why there would be any waiting period. I want to be his wife."
The entrepreneur said, "I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I can't wait to have the wedding. If it were up to me I'd go to the courthouse and get it done."
