'Bachelor' Juan Pablo's Reason for Keeping Sharleen Around Is Totally Confusing

When watching this season of The Bachelor, I find it difficult to believe that these girls are actually feeling a connection with Juan Pablo Galavis. The conversations never seem to get very far. In fact, we still don't know much about Juan Pabs other than the fact that he has a daughter and an accent. There's a whole lot of tongue and not enough talk.

Especially with frontrunner Sharleen Joynt. From the very first night, she's been uncertain about Juan Pablo -- and week after week I kept thinking, why the hell is she still here? Won't Juan Pablo feel stupid when he watches all of her confessionals filled with doubt?

Well, apparently not. Surprisingly, JP is well aware of Sharleen's feelings (or lack thereof). And that's why he keeps giving her roses.

He admitted:

I knew Sharleen had doubts about being here and how I felt about her, so I decided to give her a little reassurance by giving her the rose. I give the roses depending on whom I think needs the confidence more.

Um, Juan Pablo? Did you leave your Bachelor rule book at home? Aren't you supposed to be giving roses to the women you feel the strongest connections with? Not the ones who you know want to go home? And what about his daughter, Camila? He still gave Sharleen a rose after she admitted to wanting her first child to be her own. How will that ever work? (Spoiler: It won't ever work.) So why is he keeping her around?

In my opinion, this guy is just looking to have fun. Dare I say it ... Juan Pablo isn't in it for the right reasons. Any other Bachelor would have sent a girl home, despite how attracted to her he was, if he thought she had this many doubts.

It definitely seems like Sharleen is going to pull herself out of the competition in the next episode, but it's still crazy that she's lasted this long given how unsure she's been this entire time. I think this is the first Bachelorette in history to last this many weeks without even liking The Bachelor.

Do you think Juan Pablo is crazy for keeping Sharleen in the competition despite how she feels?

He's weird, gay, and should be deported. 

Ilona Lebourgeois

he is not husband material.. he is a wishy washy full of himself kind of a guy that should stay a bachelor and just play the field.. Just hugging and kissing and what ever else he feels like doing.. he needs to grow up and be responsible...he is a player

I also am unsure of his intentions. We know absolutely nothing about him. What about his family life? His childhood? What are some quirks about him? You're right, their conversations never go very far. I think Sharleen knows exactly how she feels(or doesn't feel) about him and I think she should take it upon herself to exit gracefully, like the woman she is.

HE SAYS TO SOME GIRLS THAT HE DOESN'T WANT HIS DAUGHTER TO SEE HIM KISSING THE WOMEN,BUT EVERYTIME HIS WITH SHARLEEN THAT'S ALL THEY DO AND NO TALKING AND IT'S REALLY STARTING TO MAKE ME SICK.BECAUSE THERE'S OTHER WOMEN THAT WANT HIM FOR THE RIGHT REASON BUT I DON'T THINK THAT HIS THE ONE FOR THEM TOO.HE IS FULL OF HIMSELF.

I will say this again. Hes from.new york! An american there for he can't be deported! Get your facts straight before running your mouth

I don't think he should keep Sharleen with the way she feels but I also think that everyone should get off his back. I mean that's all I have seen is someone saying something about what he is doing wrong.. Good Grief slack up a little!!!

Sharleen is classy, sweet, and beautiful- Not JP's type- He is a loser all the way around

Christina Holcomb

Maybe he keeps her cause she will be easy to turn down in the end.

Hey look at it this way... Charlene knew he wanted a step mom for his child from the beginning. She could've walked out as easily as she walked in. If you watch the show in depth, he exclaimed that she was one of his favorites and has given her plenty of compliments! He's trying to " feel" out the remaining girls to see if they are for him or not. He's full of life .. I'd like to have someone that fun around me all the time! People take crap so seriously sometimes! Relax!
