'Bachelor' Premiere Part 2 Recap: Juan Pablo Galavis Makes 2 HUGE Mistakes

Juan Pablo Galavis & Sharleen

Yeah ... so last night's Bachelor premiere may have been a little on the boring side, but seeing Juan Pablo Galavis meet his 27 ladies tonight totally made up for it and then some.

These girls really are a trip, and it's clear they're not going to make Juan Pablo's journey for love an easy one. Oh come on -- how psyched are you for the drama the previews promise will go down this season? It looks like this group of ladies is going to take "nuts as hell" to the next level, which is pretty much the secret ingredient to some seriously entertaining TV.

But as much as I really do like Juan Pablo and want to see him succeed ... the two little mishaps he made this evening have already put him on a path to disaster.

First of all, what on earth did he see in Sharleen (the opera singer) that prompted him to give her the first impression rose? She's really, really rigid and seems to have the personality of a brick wall, so what attracted him to her? And on the flip side of the coin -- how in the heck is she not into him? What woman with half a pulse wouldn't be all over this dude? Based on the previews for future shows, Sharleen appears to have a change of heart and sticks around for a bit longer. But it looks like she's only going to get stranger as time goes on.

And then there was the beyond awkward moment when Juan called out Kat's name at the rose ceremony -- only to have Kylie step forward thinking the rose was for her. OMG. The poor girl is never going to live down the humiliation on this one. And the fact that he didn't give her the benefit of the doubt and hand her a rose anyway could wind up rubbing some of the other girls the wrong way.

Overall, Juan Pablo made some pretty wise decisions tonight. (And thank God he didn't keep Amy, the orgasmic massage therapist, around any longer. She really scares the hell out of me.)

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what happens next week when he officially starts dating these women. It's gonna be good, people.

Who is your favorite of Juan Pablo's ladies so far?

Mary,am I reading that right? Orgasmic massage therapist?? I'm afraid I did. I'm not very impressed with any of the girls but I'm on the West Coast so it's airing in my area in about 10 minutes. Maybe I'll change my mind seeing them interact with Juan. I cringed for Kylie in the preview when she stepped up to him. But I clearly heard him say "Kat," so I'm not sure how she heard "Kylie."

Okay,now that I've watched it I get the massage therapist thing lol. I kind of like Lacey and the girl who went after her. I didn't catch her name but she mentioned a tape that her father had recorded for her future husband. I know that it's private but I kind of hope we get to know what the tape says even if he doesn't pick her.

Wow the massage therapist was so weird and you could tell it totally weirded him out...as for Sharleen I think she was surprise to get the Rose but also shocked that she didn't get the connection she thought she was going too but I liked her! I thought that Kylie was kind of a b****! She expected to be chosen and there was no other way it could be!

I'm going with the attorney, can't remember her name , although her ombré hair color has to go !!

Why do People Post Spoiler Alerts on Facebook? and say they know who the winner is... I am a big fan of the show and I am sorry that the Bachelor is on my Facebook page.. Where do they get their info anyway?

Juan Pablo is hot and seems like a genuine guy! That is all that matters! We never know how we would react in a situTion like that... He will learn and seems smart enough to make good decisions

I think what he likes about Sharleen is her sophistication and that she has an extensive world view. She's more...continental, and it seems that appeals to him. At first, given HER doubts, I thought she should've declined the rose. But maybe she thinks her feelings will grow with time.

The whole Kat/Kylie thing ... He wasn't going to pick her, anyway. So it's just as well.

I think Andi is great for him.....

Sharlene was very elegant. The reason I believe she got the rose.
