'DWTS' Recap: Sean Lowe's Romantic Tribute to Catherine Totally Backfires (VIDEO)

TV Addict 48

Sheesh. Could Dancing With the Stars possibly get any more dramatic than it was tonight? Between judge Carrie Ann Inaba doing the ugly cry over Andy Dick's performance, Lisa Vanderpump fainting during rehearsals, and Kellie Pickler getting all weepy reminiscing about her wedding, it almost seemed more like a cheesy episode of The Bachelor than a ballroom dancing competition.

Oh yeah, wait a minute -- it actually could have passed as a cheesy episode of The Bachelor, considering the romantic gesture Sean Lowe tried to pull off at the beginning of the show.

Yes, I said "tried." (Let's face it -- the poor dude failed miserably.)

Ok, so the theme for this week was for the contestants to pick the most memorable year of their lives and then choose a song to go along with it. And of course, Sean said 2012 was the best year of his existence on this earth because he "found Catherine" and got engaged and all that good stuff.

Sure, that's kind of cute and very Sean Lowe-like -- but then the music started playing and I found myself staring at the TV saying, "Huh?"

They've only been engaged for a few weeks, and he chose "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz? Really?

Good grief. Maybe I'm just really naive, or a major idiot, or both -- but somehow I'm guessing that song means that things between Sean and Catherine aren't quite as perfect as they'd like people to think. Whenever I hear it, I picture a married couple going through the seven-year itch -- not an engaged couple who hasn't even done the dirty yet.

And then there was that awkward moment when he went over to kiss Catherine at the end of the dance. Did you catch the expression on her face when he was done? Yeah, it wasn't the look of a girl who is madly in love with her fiance. I mean, she did appear to be on the verge of tears, but for all the wrong reasons.

Here's the clip. Pay special attention to Catherine's face right after Sean walks away.


Ouch. That was painful. (Poor girl.) If I didn't know any better, I'd say these two have already booked a couple tickets on the midnight train to splitsville.

And based on that performance, there's a decent chance that Sean's DWTS journey may come to an end even before his relationship with Catherine does.

Do you think Sean and Peta will wind up in the bottom two? And do you think he and Catherine are in trouble?

Obviously you didn't watch the Bachelor. Catherine had that same face when Sean's father told her he would treat her as his daughter. That is how she reacts when she is deeply touched. She doesn't show her emotions as easily as you might think. You know what happens when you stir up sh*t don't you? You get crap all over you

Your life must be really sad mary, if all u can do is pick apart a couple who is clearly in love and yes we know he cant dance to save his life but @ least he's trying somthing different. You r sad sad sad..# getareallifeloser.

Very negative blog. I'm sorry I read this.

sorry but were we watching the same show??  Clearly she was happy...and it was very romantic...

Making bold negative statements without really understanding their relationship is just irresponsible blogging. This blog or website and Celebrity Dirty Laundry are on the same level - they will write bold lies as headlines to get people to click on their stories. I'm disgusted.

Hey Negative Nancy, why don't you get together with Debbie Downer and write your own love story. Odd that you have never met them, yet you know them soooo well.

Clearly, Mary Fischer has a Fishy story.

Sean is just so genuine and lovely. It's rare to see this now in men. Women who get these men should cherish them. I love his devoted and sweet nature. He's a heart throb. His fiancee is very blessed - I hope she realizes it.

I believe SEAN is being a good guy now but wait til he gets the right chance ,i am beginning to feel he want marry CATHERINE,  the main reason is he is not with her to much and he could have been with her on EASTER ,instead he had rather go and play in the mud. I would haave already ditched him and I was all for the couple but don't think he has growed up enough and he is going to get his way.
