Women love to pick on Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis. What started out as a sexy-to-the-ears Argentinian accent soon became hard-to-understand dribble. Even his adorable pucker-up plea "besitos" became grating to most. Then fans started tallying up his many make-out sessions and he earned the rep as the horniest rose bearer of all time. Now show alums Catherine Giudici and Trista Sutter have lobbed the worst insult yet at poor Juan Pablo.
They are calling him completely superficial, only caring about looks. They basically think he is letting his you-know-what do the picking rather than his heart. In a scathing tweet, Catherine quipped: “So [Juan Pablo] thinks each girl is ‘pretty,’ ‘sexy,’ and ‘ayeayeaye.’ Should make for a great long term relationship. #TheBachelor.” Zing!
Trista whole-heartedly agreed. “I think a lasting relationship requires physical attraction (have you seen my husband?!), but on week eight, was just hoping for him to reveal a bit more depth in his search,” she wrote on her Parade blog.
Are they serious? The entire concept of the show is about looks. These protests are the equivalent to insisting that Miss America is a scholarship contest and not a beauty pageant. PUHLEEESE! It's not as though eight weeks is even enough time to really get to the heart of who someone is.
In fact, both of the women should remember the old adage -- people in glass houses should not throw stones. Would Catherine have been so giddy if Sean Lowe didn't look like Malibu Ken? What did she really know about that guy after those over-the-top, contrived dates. And Trista -- it's not like she wanted any of the Quasimodos during her season. And she picked a super hot firefighter. How cliche is that. All of that is to say that Juan Pablo may be making superficial choices, but that is what every contestant does. After the show ends is when they really get to know the person, which is why so many of those showmances fail in real life. So give the guy a break.
Do you think Juan Pablo is more superficial than past Bachelors?
