We're already pretty envious of the swanky-as-all-get-out TV wedding Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are going to have on January 26, 2014. ABC is paying for it so you know there will be no expense spared to make this the event of the year.
I figured they'd probably be getting a free first class honeymoon in addition to not having to shell out one dime for their big day. But for some reason, it never crossed my mind that Sean and Catherine would also be paid a nice sum of cash to tie the knot in front of millions of ABC's loyal viewers.
Ugh. How could I be so stupid? I must be losing my touch.
Ok, so are you ready to hear how much Sean and Catherine are being paid for their nuptials?
While there isn't an exact number, supposedly they'll receive a six-figure paycheck simply for saying "I do" and letting millions of people watch.
(Geez. How do I get on The Bachelor, win the dude at the end -- and where do I sign up for my free wedding?)
Are you believing this? Six figures. Hell, if everyone got paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to get hitched, maybe the divorce rate in this country would go down a tad.
Um, no wonder Sean and Catherine are having their wedding aired on live TV. They might as well go ahead and drop the "we met on TV so we should get married on TV" bullshit excuse.
I mean, what couple in their right mind wouldn't jump at the chance to be paid for a party being thrown in their honor -- that's also 100 percent cost free to them?!?
They'd be complete idiots to turn down an offer like this. All I can say is more power to 'em for taking the bait and agreeing to share their wedding with all of their loyal Bachelor fans.
Settling into life as newlyweds isn't usually all that stressful (what with the blinding honeymoon phase and all) -- but something tells me having all that extra dough in their bank account will only make things even more peachy keen.
Damn. If only the rest of us could be so lucky as to have a major TV network throw money at us for putting a ring on it. (Not that I'm jealous or anything. Really.)
Do you think the hefty paycheck is the reason Sean and Catherine are having a TV wedding?
