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

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?
