Sean Lowe got booted off of “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday night and the “Bachelor” hunk said the elimination didn’t come as a surprise.

“We kind of saw it coming, so at least we were prepared,” the reality TV personality told Access Hollywood following the show, of he and professional partner Peta Murgatroyd’s elimination.

Though disappointed, Sean is looking forward to having a bit of downtime now – including some R & R with fiancée Catherine Giudici.

“This is very time consuming. It’s nice – now I can take a deep breath and Catherine and I can do a lot of things – chill out, go on vacation,” he said. “So, in that sense it’s a relief.”

As for rumors he and Catherine (who got engaged on Season 17 of “The Bachelor”) will tie the knot in August, Sean said they will not be heading down the aisle that quickly.

“That whole August thing was [‘DWTS’ host] Tom Bergeron making a joke,” he said. “We haven’t set a date yet.”

The 29-year-old also said the couple’s ceremony is still slated to be taped for TV, for cost reasons.

“Will it be televised? Probably, only because I’d be a fool to pass up a free wedding,” he said, laughing.
