I think BachelorJuan Pablo Galavis may be past the point of a simple "Bless his heart." He just needs to step quietly away from the roses and fade back into obscurity. And while he's at it, he should probably stop blaming all of his insensitive remarks on a language barrier.
On Friday, Juan Pablo retweeted (and then quickly deleted due to backlash) a follower's joke that made light of disabilities. In the aftermath, he told his detractors to "relax" and "try to be happy and enjoy jokes and sarcasm." I'm confused. Hasn't ol' JP blamed all of his cluelessness about sarcasm on his language barrier? It seems that ABC is as tired of this season's Bachelor as I am!
It's time for he said/she said courtesy of the Bachelor! After a midnight ocean tryst, this season's Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis started back pedaling–and shaming–his partner in passion. Now Clare Crawley (is she still vying for his attention? I'd have been totally out of there!) is telling her side of the story.
Of course, despite her toast to "making love" and Chris Harrison's hint that the two may have diddled, Clare is setting the record straight. They did not do the deed. Can you imagine the sand in the nether regions? While I'm not sure she's all that convincing, I do think that Juan Pablo handled the situation like a giant bag of skeeze.
So, that Juan Pablo Galavis…he's kind of a sex shamer, isn't he? After getting down (and perhaps dirty) after hours with contestant Clare Crawley, who'd received a rose on Monday night's group date, the Bachelorkind of made her (and America) feel icky in the most dramatic awkward shaming in the show's history. Ever.
What's worse? Everyone keeps talking about it…and of course, by everyone, I mean the show's glorious host Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo himself. Seriously, JP just needs to keep quiet for a while. Chris, talk away, my friend!
Well this is the best news I've heard in a while! It may even get me to stomach a full hour a day of DVRed Jenny McCarthy and Babs Walters. Could the producers of The View be adding a dude into the mix?
Of course, they couldn't just pick any dude. They need a man among boys, a dapper, purple tie wearing hunk with a Zen voice and a penchant for roses and the most dramatic things…ever. How do I love Chris Harrison? Let me count the ways.
I am fully caught up on my Bachelorpremiere, and might I say that was Juan helluva opener! Oh the awkward crying, and that amazing reaction to the first impression rose. "She's speechless." And help me out here…since when is "free spirit" a career? Juan Pablo Galavis certainly has his work cut out for him this season with this crop of ladies.
Even Juan was worried that he wasn't going to make it to the finish line of the series' eighteenth season. The stress and drama of dating a bevy of girls under fairy tale like circumstances can certainly take its toll on a dude!
I'm not going to lie, I've been looking forward to Juan-uary for a long time, but I have a confession to make. I've yet to watch it (it's patiently waiting on my DVR) because of Sunday'sSister Wives. Plus, I got hooked on a little web series on Hulu Plus that is the most hilarious Bachelorparody called Burning Love (and don't even get me started on the amazing guest stars!).
However, while I pine for this season's Juan PabloGalavis, one of the ladies who got kicked off in the first round is already trying to extend her fifteen minutes. Is it just me, or does one episode of the dating show not warrant a full fifteen? Not only that, but one reputable media outlet is touting hot father Juan as a (gasp!) deadbeat dad! What??
Just when I thought pimp momager Kris Jenner couldn't get any worse, she posts the above picture of herself on Instagram (captioned "Date Night"–gag) sporting tween duck face and dining with Francine from the PBS cartoon Arthur. On the heels of the tabloids covers touting a not-so-secret romance between the icky reality star and former BachelorBen Flannel, er, I mean Flajnik.
And what does poor estranged husband Bruce Jenner think of all this messiness? For his sake, I hope he realizes that life is far better out of Kris' klutches. I wonder if he ever gets the itch to spill what he knows about loyal and doting wife. We all know if the tables were turned, she'd do it in a heartbeat!
Is San Francisco on your bucket list (it's certainly on mine!)? Do you love delicious cuisine and fine wine (yes and yes!)? Are you still not over your Bachelorcrush on Ben "Flannel" Flajnik (well, um…er…)? If you answered yes to all of these questions, you need to get yourself on the waiting list for this gilt.com special. Right. Now.
