'The Bachelor': Catherine Giudici Wins Sean Lowe's Final Rose In Season Finale

Catherine Giudici has won "The Bachelor" and received Sean Lowe's final rose. Catherine is a 26-year-old graphic designer from Seattle, WA, who has impressed Sean with her traditional values all season long, even expressing her reservations about the Fantasy Suite. Sean is reportedly a born-again virgin who has vowed not to have sex before marriage. Catherine previously admitted that one of the items on her bucket list was to ride an elephant in Thailand, a wish that Sean made come true in the "Bachelor" season finale.

Sean's runner up was Lindsay Yenter, a 24-year-old substitute teacher from Fort Bragg, NC. The final rose ceremony took place near Chiang Rai, Thailand. As usual, the engagement ring was provided by jeweler Neil Lane, who flew to Thailand to help Sean choose the perfect design.
