What a difference seven months makes. Last summer, women across America cheered when Juan Pablo Galavis was announced as the next Bachelor.
The Bachelor gig is usually reserved for contestants who make it further into the amazing journey that is the Bachelorette. Juan was an early boot for Desiree Hartsock, but we were smitten with the funny (or so we thought) and charming (or so we thought) soccer player from Venezuela.
Now, women across America despise Juan Pablo, and one woman in particular threw a can of beer at him at a club in Atlantic City over the weekend. Ess okay to laugh, right?
ABC crushed my trashy TV loving heart when Bachelor Pad was canceled last summer. I mean, the only reason to watch Bachelor and Bachelorette, which are both beyond stale, the past several years was to anticipate who will end up on the sleaze fest called Bachelor Pad.
On Friday, ABC shared its plan to launch a new Bachelor spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise, this summer. Paradise?!? Like Love in the Wild or Paradise Hotel or Temptation Island? I'm listening, ABC…
It was one of the weirdest finales in Bachelor history. Juan Pablo Galavis not only failed to propose but he didn't even say "I love you" to his last lady standing Nikki Ferrell. Things got even odder on the After The Final rose, but the couple is vowing to make it work – if only for their 15 minutes of fame!
JP and Nikki are still together and in order to make sure their relationship continues in the right direction the duo is seeking counseling from Marriage Bootcamp's Jim and Elizabeth Carroll.
Press surrounding the Bachelorisn'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.
Also? Chubby guys need not apply to be the Bachelor.
But of course any lady that goes on reality TV is opening herself up to scrutiny – and that means all the deep, dark secrets of her salacious or devious past revealed.
Let's see who's in it to win Juan Pablo's heart – and who's probably got one too many tricks up her sleeves (can one store tricks in sleeveless rompers, bikini tops, or strapless cocktail dresses?).
This week Juan Pablo eliminated Elise Mosca, allegedly a first grade teacher from PA, and Lauren Solomon, a composer who desperately tried to kiss him. And it turns out that those were the right choices!
Before she was vying for roses, Lauren was engaged to Blake DuPlant, whom she met as a contestant on the game show Minute to Win It, unfortunately the wedding was abruptly canceled!

Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici were married last night in a live Bachelor Wedding special on ABC. Sean cried. (a lot) I cried. (a little) Sean's father, Jay, officiated the ceremony. According to Catherine, "grown sexy" was the theme and "very romantic" was the mood.
Catherine looked stunning in her Monique Lhuillier gown!!
