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!
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.
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!
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!

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!
