ABC has announced the cast ofBachelor in Paradise – well, there are some familiar faces, though not as many old schoolBachelor Pad fame whores as I was expecting, and some not-so-familiar faces. I honestly had to look up two of the "biggest stars" because I couldn't remember who they are.
Per the press release: "Some of Bachelor's biggest stars and villains are back. They all left theBachelor or theBachelorettewith broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and on Bachelor in Paradise they'll get a second chance to find their soul mates."
It's good to know I'm not the only Juan who thinks that this season's Bachelorwas a terribly insensitive d-bag. Even one of the final two, Clare Crawley can't stand the guy! Can you blame her? Juan Pablo Galavis apparently said something so foul to her off camera that she was totally blindsided. Of course, now that we know exactly what he said, I think we can all agree on two things: first, the pair certainly diddled in the ocean before he sex shamed her early in the season; and second, JP's an even bigger tool than we'd thought!
We'll get to Juan Pablo's comment in bit, but before that, I'd like to place some bets on how long his romance (can I call it that?) will last with Nikki Ferrell and whether he'll fade into obscurity with little to no post-season press. A month tops, for both? A girl can dream, can't she?
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!
