Proposal

Fil-Am wins in US reality TV dating game show ‘The Bachelor’.

A Filipino-American woman emerged as the winner of the 17th season of the US reality television dating game show “The Bachelor” when she won the heart of the man who was looking for a girlfriend.
An article on Asian Journal said 26-year-old half-Filipina Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici accepted the proposal of Sean Lowe, and bested 25 other girls for the way to his heart.Giudici is a graphic designer and blogger from Seattle, Washington.The article noted that she is the daughter of one of the trustees of the Filipino-American National Historical Society in Seattle, Cynthia Mejia-Giudici.

On the other hand, her father, Carey “Trip” Guidici, is a journalist of Scottish and Swiss-Italian descent who was also a former editor-in-chief of Northwest Asia Week.
An estimated 10 million viewers watched Giudici accept Lowe’s proposal before they climbed “atop an elephant under a Thailand sunset” during the “The Bachelor” two-hour season finale on Monday.

“I miss you every time we have to say goodbye. I don’t want to say goodbye anymore,” Texas insurance agent Lowe, 28, said during his proposal to Giudici.He also said he and Giudici plan to have a televised wedding though he said there is still no definite date for their wedding.
“A marriage follows a proposal. We don’t have a date yet but we have decided that it would be cool since our relationship started and cultivated on a TV show we’ll have our wedding on a TV show. ABC will cover the wedding,” Lowe said.
Entertainment site E! Online also came out with some trivia about Giudici in an article, noting that the “The Bachelor” winner is “not creative,” a writer aside from being a graphic designer; vegetarian, and athletic.
The story noted Giudici’s explanation on the claims that she is “not creative.

“Usually when someone claims to be creative, the term loses a bit of its value. I won’t say I am creative because that is for you to judge. But I will say that I like to create,” she said.Giudici also writes a weekly column for Seattleite.com called “Meatless Mondays,” in which she gives recommendations about restaurants that serve good vegan food.

Her being a vegetarian was already noted in the show, but the reason she chose the lifestyle was because of a trip to Kenya in Africa, where she ate “copious amounts of exotic—and not so exotic—meat on a trip to Kenya” that afterwards left her “craving anything and everything without a face.”Lastly, running more than nine miles is apparently no sweat for Giudici, who earlier this month ran the Seattle Hot Chocolate 15K in 1 hour, 36 minutes, and 16 seconds.

Schechter got the idea for the couples’ site after noticing singles were deactivating their accounts once they met someone.
But he said that they kept coming back because they were looking for inspiration for their own dates.

They realized that people who are in relationships are still looking for wonderful date ideas.
On HowAboutWe for Couples, the dates are already planned.Favorites include “Peanuts About You,” a date to a peanut butter specialty shop in the West Village, and “Scratch That,” a DJ lesson for two.

For 18 dollars a month, couples can choose from a selection of pre-planned dates.Some are free, but more extravagant dates — like a two-night getaway in the Finger Lakes region — cost extra.
Since it launched in November, more than 2,000 couples have signed up for the service, which is only available in New York, with plans to launchsoon in San Francisco.

Actors

Taylor Lautner and Ashley Benson Dating? Photos Emerge of Couple at Dinner.

Taylor Lautner and Ashley Benson have been seen dining out together earlier this week, sparking rumors that the two actors could be dating.
Lautner, who stars as a werewolf in his film series “The Twilight Saga,” was spotted having a casual meal with “Pretty Little Liars” actress Benson. The date took place at Red O Mexican Restaurant in El Lay on Thursday night. The two incidentally are also represented by the same agent.
Despite the rumors connecting the two actors together, sources have said that the two left separately at the end of the night, and that it could have been nothing more than two friends getting together.
Meanwhile, Lautner’s co-star in the “Twilight” films, Kristen Stewart, continues to be going through a tough time. Stewart has reportedly pulled out of the London premiere of her new movie “On The Road” as she is reportedly too embarrassed to make public appearances following the recent cheating scandal.
Stewart, 22, cheated on long term boyfriend and “Twilight” co-star, Rob Pattinson, with married father Rupert Sanders, who directed her film “Snow White and the Huntsman.” The actress apparently fears that making an appearance on Aug. 16 would only distract from the film, which is an adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel.
“Kristen won’t be doing the red carpet for ‘On The Road,’ she’s too ashamed to show her face in public right now,” a source told Radar Online.

“After everything that has been said, and in light of the revelations that she cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, she’s running scared at the moment.”
Tom Sturridge, Stewart’s “On The Road” co-star, is good friends with Pattinson, which has scared the actress off even more from attending the premiere.
“There’s also the dilemma of standing next to her co-star in the movie, Tom Sturridge. He’s very close to Rob and Kristen thinks it would be awkward for her to promote the movie on the red carpet alongside him,” the insider explained.
“Kristen is very proud of her work for ‘On The Road,’ she grew up reading Kerouac novels and this is a production she always wanted to star in. If she appears at the London premiere, it will detract people from the movie itself and Kristen doesn’t want that at all,” the source added.
