“America’s favorite bachelor couple,” Sean and Catherine Lowe, who caught the nation’s attention after finding love on a hit reality show, are now enlisting the help of Sears celebrity designer, Ty Pennington, fans from across the country and Sears shoppers to design the patio of the couple’s new home via this web series from the retailer.

“We’ve been in our new house in Dallas a month so it’s pretty empty right now; we’re looking forward to making it a home. While we have similar tastes designing the inside of our home, when it comes to outdoors Catherine and I have different styles and goals,” said Sean Lowe. “I like things to be a bit more “manly” — a place where my guy friends will want to hang out with me and grill steaks. Catherine is looking for something chic and sophisticated — more of a family entertaining space. We can’t wait to see what Ty and the rest of America recommend!”

sears challenge“We are so thankful for what Sears outdoor living, Shop Your Way, Kenmore and Ty are doing for us,” said Catherine Lowe. “With the warm Dallas weather, our outdoor space is something we can use just about year-round. It’s just as important for entertaining as our indoor living area.”

In addition to the “Celebrity Challenge” web series

Sears outdoor living has created an online hub where members can:

  • Watch all eight episodes and vote for the patio and grill products they think best suit Sean and Catherine’s needs
  • Enter the sweepstakes to win Shop Your Way points and outdoor living products
  • Learn about other Sears outdoor living products and features

“I visited Sean and Catherine in Dallas recently to chat about their likes and dislikes when it comes to outdoor decor. I think I have a pretty good idea of what they are looking for, but need America’s help,” said Ty Pennington. “Join me and my friends from Sears each week and follow this exciting journey and outdoor transformation.”

Sears has a great selection of outdoor living collections and grills at Sean and Catherine’s disposal, including collections from Ty Pennington Style, Grand Resort, La-Z-Boy Outdoor, their private brand Kenmore and Kenmore Elite.
