'Bachelor' Sean Lowe & 'DWTS' Partner Peta Murgatroyd Stir Up Cheating Rumors

Eye Roll 16

Sean Lowe Peta MurgatroydOh, please -- you gotta be kidding me. Have rumors about Bachelor Sean Lowe hooking up with his DWTS partner Peta Murgatroyd really started already?!?

Um, the new season has only been on for a week, and suddenly there's speculation that Sean is going behind fiance Catherine Giudici's back and getting all flirty and frisky with Peta. (What the heck?)

A source who talked to Star even says that Sean's friends think he needs to "watch himself" around her -- and indicates that Peta would welcome the attention.

The source said, "Peta was dating fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkoviskiy, but he dumped her in February. She wouldn't be above making waves on the show by making a move on Sean. Peta is way more worldly than Catherine, even though they are the same age."

More worldly? Why, because she's Australian and dated a Ukranian dude?

Ok, so I guess I understand the "making waves on the show" part, because anytime viewers believe there is some sort of romance going on between partners, it doesn't exactly hurt ratings. (Duh. We're still obsessing over Val Chmerkovskiy and Kelly Monaco.)

And it's only natural for Sean and Peta to get a little bit flirtatious with each other considering they're spending practically every waking moment together. But keeping things light and having fun doesn't necessarily mean they're secretly getting hot and heavy. (This is Sean we're talking about, here.)

Even if Sean weren't engaged and he was free to hook up with anyone he pleases -- I still don't see him and Peta being attracted to each other. Sean obviously digs brunettes, and based on Peta's recent dating history, she seems to like the tall, dark, and handsome type -- preferably with a sexy accent. (No, a subtle twang doesn't count.)

Sigh. If the Sean and Peta rumors have already started, I can't wait to see how the rest of the season plays out. And if they make it to the finals and wind up competing for the mirror ball trophy, odds are good we can expect a story about him dumping Catherine on the dance floor, eloping with Peta, and having a couple of perfect little blond babies to pop up before the winner is even announced.

Do you think there's any chance of these two hooking up?
