Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici celebrated their first wedding anniversary last month and continue to keep the romance alive with fun date nights.

"But we can't just go out to eat," Lowe, 31, told Hudson and Emily. "She needs it to be really intentional and have a lot of thought behind it." He adds, "She's all about themes."

For example: "If she wanted to go have Chinese food, she might want to go see Chinese lanterns in the park afterwards," says Lowe, 31.

With just three women left in the running, Monday's episode of The Bachelor had Chris Soules handing out keys to his Fantasy Suites.

Becca, Whitney, Kaitlyn and Chris (plus Chris Harrison) traveled to Bali for a romantic – and humid – atmosphere that the ladies would never forget.

Though one lady would probably very much like to.

You'd think Sean Lowe would be tapped out after several rounds of Men Tell All and After the Rose specials during his time on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but an interview on Friday proved he still has plenty of behind-the-scenes Bachelor secrets left.

Chris Soules Wasn't Always This Season's Bachelor

America – and at least three women – may have fallen in love with Chris Soules on this season of The Bachelor, but if you ask Lowe, the Iowa farmer almost didn't get the network's offer to be season 19's leading man.

Lowe told Dish Nation on Friday that it was not Soules, 33, whom producers originally had in mind to hand out the roses. Instead, they'd extended an offer to Arie Luyendyk Jr., whom Lowe befriended when they were both wooing Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette in 2012. (Lowe made it to the final three; Maynard passed over Luyendyk in favor of Jef Holm.)

"From what I understand, the show, the producers that make the show, they wanted Arie," said Lowe, 31, but new executives at the network "were getting nervous. Like, Arie hadn't been on TV in two years."

More shocking, though, is Lowe's claim that Luyendyk, 33, had gotten as far as filming introductory segments when he learned he'd been replaced.

Chris Soules is The Bachelor! After a bittersweet exit from Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, is searching for love once again on ABC's hit franchise. Chris, 33, will be blogging for PEOPLE.com every week about the women, the dates and the difficult decisions he'll make on his journey to love. So check back every week, and follow Chris on Twitter.

Waking up after my group date in Des Moines, I didn't want to dwell on what happened with Britt, so I just decided to focus all my energy on Becca, and I'm so glad I did. I know I just had a one-on-one with Becca in Deadwood, but it catapulted our relationship forward, and I wanted to build on that momentum. It was so nice to spend a regular day with Becca. Just hanging with her in my loft felt so normal.

Now, here's a little tidbit about "my" loft. I don't live in Des Moines. I don't have a place in Des Moines. That's just where I was planning on staying while we were in town. But truthfully, I ended up sleeping at the hotel most of the time, so it was pretty funny calling it "my" loft. I officially want to thank the dude who let me use it. You've got a sweet place, but sorry for making out on your couch.

We're almost at the finish line, Bachelor Nation.

On Monday's episode, Chris Soules visited four hometowns. In true Bachelor fashion, however, the most interesting events happened while the girls were still all in one place, trash-talking each other.

Also, two girls were sent home in advance of the hometown dates – yes, they're probably the ones you'd assume.

Getting ready for the rose ceremony in Deadwood was tough because I was pretty sure I knew who I was going to send home, but I did want to spend more time with the girls to confirm my feelings. I was relieved when Megan boldly asked me how I felt for her, and she was right – our relationship was lacking progression.

This week on The Bachelor, Britt learned what it was like to not be the sole recipient of Chris Soules's affection – she did not take it well.

Also, Megan was cut before the rose ceremony that would never be (Chris nixed it on account of having too many feelings for the remaining girls), and the rest of the ladies made their way to Iowa. Meanwhile, Jade got to meet Chris's parents and revealed her Playboy past to Carly, and Carly became utterly intent on exposing Britt as a supposed fraud.
