Press surrounding the Bachelor isn't all roses lately.
In January, Juan Pablo Galavis stated a gay Bachelor wouldn't set a "good example for kids"… because why? He said, "they're more pervert in a sense." Juan went on to blame his poor choice of words on his sketchy English. Earlier this week, Chris Harrison added that a gay Bachelor probably would not be a good business decision for ABC.

When questioned by New York Times magazine about the possibility of a gay lead, Chris said he's "100% for equality and gay marriage" on a "philosophical level" but posed the question, "Is it a good business decision?"
"I just spoke at U.S.C. the other night, and I explained it like this: Look, if you've been making pizzas for 12 years and you've made millions of dollars and everybody loves your pizzas and someone comes and says, 'Hey, you should make hamburgers.' Why? I have a great business model, and I don't know if hamburgers are going to sell," continued Chris. "Is our job to break barriers or is it a business? That's not for me to answer."
Then, Chris was asked if we'll ever see a "less hunky bachelor, maybe like a chubby guy," and he said no.
"You know why? Because that's not attractive, and television is a very visual medium, and I know that sounds horrible to say, but I know that at 42, in the eyes of television, I'm old and unattractive," shared Chris. "Sure, I can put a suit and tie on, but I have hair on my chest and I don't have a 12-pack. I live a healthy life, but I don't do eight hours in the gym, nor do I want to. And I don't eat 50,000 egg whites."
