The Bachelor's Catherine Giudici Says She Thinks She Was Cast On The Show To 'Check A Box'

Catherine Giudici is opening up about her time on The Bachelor and admits that she has always felt she was cast on the show to check a box to bring some diversity to the series.

The 34-year-old graphic designer shared a post on Instagram with her fans opening up about her experience on the show.

“When I was originally cast, I was very flattered but somewhat grounded by the fact that I would be one of the faces that represented people of color. I knew that one of the reasons I was probably chosen was because I was Filipino,” she wrote.

Catherine continued, “I thought I was there just to check a box, but I ended up with so much more…I became present with the process and as he [now husband Sean Lowe] started noticing me for who I really was, I allowed this experience to open myself up to the possibility of being fully loved and appreciated for all that I was.”

“I ended up getting to represent a mixed race community, I found Christ (I LOVE my testimony!) and marrying the most amazing man I’ve ever known. I’d say doing this show was one of the best things that ever happened to me.❤️”

Catherine, who is of Filipino and European descent, is still married to Sean and they have three children together, Samuel, Isaiah and Mia.
