MANILA, Philippines - A Filipina-American from Seattle is one of final three contestants on the current season of reality TV show "The Bachelor" in the US.

Catherine Giudici, a former graphic designer for Amazon, is vying for the affections of Dallas businessman Sean Lowe on 17th season of "The Bachelor." The 26-year-old is up against two other women Lindsay Yenter and AshLee Frazier.

On "The Bachelor" website, Giudici said she considers herself a romantic. "Love is the best and expressing it to someone is so special," she said. 

A Seattle native, Giudici blogs for The Seattleite, where she mostly writes reviews of vegan restaurants. She graduated from Washington State University with a BA in Advertising.

She is the daughter of Carey and Cynthia Giudici. Cynthia is a current trustee of the Filipino American National Historical Society.

TV viewers in the US will find out if Giudici, seen as a frontrunner, will get the final rose from Lowe when "The Bachelor" finale airs next month.
