There's an upside to Sean Lowe's elimination on Tuesday from Dancing with the Stars.
The former Bachelor star, 29, can finally give undivided attention to his fiancée, Catherine Giudici, who supported him all season as he competed for the mirrorball trophy with Peta Murgatroyd.
"I've gone from one show to the next for the past 12 or 14 months," Lowe told PEOPLE backstage after being sent home. "It's nice now. I'll have a little bit of a break and I can take a deep breath. [Catherine and I will] definitely take a vacation and relax. I'm definitely going to spend a lot of quality time with her because dancing consumed my life for the past few months, so it'll be nice to play with my dogs – the simple things."

Were Sean Lowe's fans able to save him from being eliminated on Tuesday night's Dancing with the Stars?
On Monday, the former Bachelor star failed to impress the judges with a pair of foot-fumbling routines that put him at the very bottom of the leader board with 42 points out of 60.
Soap star Ingo Rademacher trailed not too far behind with 48 points for the night.

Three's a crowd?
Hardly for one competitor, who snagged the season's first perfect 30-point score on Dancing with the Stars on Monday.
The trio of 10s came appropriately enough on threesome night, when the stars each teamed up with two pros for the second round of dances.
The trio dances added complexity and sass – and at one point had one judge melting down in an angry clash with his colleagues.

There's no dirty dancing going on between Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd.
The Dancing with the Stars pro tells PEOPLE that despite rumors, she and her partner Lowe, 29, are "just good friends like brother and sister."
The season 14 champ says gossip is to be expected given Lowe's sexy (and sometimes shirtless) routines but that it's tough for the former Bachelor star and his new fiancée, Catherine Giudici. "[The rumors are] something that [have] gotten a little out of hand with Sean and Catherine because they had just gotten engaged and it's just so crazy to think that people are making up all these stories," she says in an interview with PEOPLE. "They have to have something to talk about and it's ridiculous. There's nothing going on."

Sean Lowe had more to celebrate on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars than just a sexy, complimented rumba with partner, Peta Murgatroyd.
The former Bachelor star, 29, whisked away his fiancée, Catherine Giudici to a fancy dinner for her 27th birthday, immediately following the show.
"We had a big party with family and friends at Villa Blanca," Lowe told PEOPLE on Tuesday of former fellow DWTS castmate Lisa Vanderpump's trendy Beverly Hills eatery. "We had a good time celebrating. Peta was there and [pro dancer] Sharna [Burgess] was there."

Andy Dick and his pro partner Sharna Burgess felt a little Dancing déjà vu on Monday, when the judges once again gave them a harsh critique.
"I'm angry, because, for example, Bruno – he stands up every week and says something mean to be funny," Burgess, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after Monday night's show. "You're here to be a judge, to tell us how to be better."
Burgess does commend judge Carrie Ann Inaba for her feedback.
"As far as her giving us a five, yeah, that sucked, but she had constructive criticism at least," Burgess said. "And if she put so much importance on those dead arms, then trust me, we won't have any next week."

The ballroom heated up on Monday night's Latin-themed Dancing with the Stars.
Seven weeks into the competition, almost all of the remaining couples came up with impressive routines. But it was Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas who landed their first 10s of the season, with a salsa that Len Goodman – who gave the pair a nine – called, "tasty and refreshing."
The pair got 10s from the other two judges, which put them at a total of 29 points out of 30. They also received an additional three points for winning a dance-off against Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess.
Raisman and Ballas tied with regular high-scoring duo, Derek Hough and Kellie Pickler, who wowed judges with their samba to Ricky Martin's "Shake Your Bon Bon."

After taping Dancing with the Stars on Monday, Sean Lowe and his fiancé Catherine Giudici hung out at The Sayers Club in Hollywood.
Arriving around 11:30 p.m., Lowe wore a black leather jacket over a white shirt, while Giudici opted for a little black dress. Although Lowe's DWTS partner Peta Murgatroyd was also in attendance, the couple didn't spend much time with her.
As the night continued, Lowe and Giudici were "very affectionate with each other," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "At one point around midnight, Sean rubbed Catherine's neck. Later, Catherine grabbed Sean's face and gave him a peck on the lips."
