5 Reasons Juan Pablo Is Not the Worst 'Bachelor' Ever

juan pabloIf you thought the Women Tell All special was harsh on Juan Pablo Galavis, wait until you hear this. E! News reports that it's not just his castoffs that despise him. Crew and producers apparently hate him too. According to a source, "Everyone on the show is just so over him and cannot wait for this season to be over. He's the worst Bachelor ever." Oh how the hunky have fallen. The biggest issue seems to be his anti-gay comment some weeks ago. He happened to make the gaffe during the same weekend as Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's wedding and they worried that it overshadowed the blessed, made-for-TV event. As if anything could take attention away from the fact that the walking Ken Doll and his pick were finally gonna do it. They also took issue with him jokingly using the R-word in in a tweet. But I say poor Juan Pablo deserves a break. Check out the 5 reasons he isn't as bad as all the haters say.

  1. He's been criticized for being too honest. Is it just me or is this totally crazy. Andi Dorfman fumed over the fact that he was too straightforward. So much so, he hurt her feelings. While he should be mindful of insulting others, being truthful is a good thing. Aren't women always asking men to be more open and honest? Now the world is kicking a man when he does just that.
  2. That language barrier is real. So many of the women don't buy that he doesn't understand certain words or phrases. That just isn't fair. Some people can live here for a few years and speak near-perfect English. Others find it much more difficult. I married into a family of immigrants and I know from personal experience you can live here two decades and still have difficulties. It's just cruel not to give him the benefit of the doubt.
  3. So what if he likes to make out with a lot of girls. What guy doesn't. This is the equivalent to being a kid in the candy store. He gets to date 25 hot, eager women. Why wouldn't he want to kiss the ones he's really attracted too?
  4. Treating the mom contestants special is not wrong. Some of the women took issue with the fact that he viewed the women with children differently. But they are different. A parent (as he is) recognizes that. They are not just there to find love for themselves, but also looking for a potential father for their children. That's a big deal.
  5. Come on! Is he really the WORST Bachelor ever? What about Jake Pavelka. Vienna Girardi broke down in tears recounting the emotional abuse she withstood. And who can forget Brad Womack, who didn't pick either of his top two in the finale. Even worse, Jason Mesnick dumped the first place winner for the runner after the cameras stopped rolling. Those guys sound so much worse to me.

What do you think of Juan Pablo? Is he really as bad as they say?

I think he is looking for a wife and mother for Camilla. People are crazy haters....let it go.😳

Lisa McKendree

I think that he should pick Nikki to be his wife and step mother. Clair has not mentioned one word about Camilla that they have shown on the show.

Terri Dunning

Yes he's a player just like most of the so-called jerks that have been on the show. He uses being honest as a excuse to be down right hurtful. It is very apparent watching the shows. He is very condescending to the woman by his don't worry, but he never listens to the woman's concerns, he doesn't care what any of them think. He is in love with himself and feels like he is the only one who counts. NOT SO!!jP

The guy didn't fall for any of the girls. It is what it is. I can't believe everyone is freaking out about it. I guess the show thinks you should lie about your feelings to keep them looking good. Pathetic!!!! Good for him for not being able to be a complete "actor" and pretend to have fallen in love when he HE DIDNT! it was obvious the whole show...there was so sincere connection and that's a two way street. I have watched every season and I think I'm done. The bachelor franchise itself being a JP hater makes me sick. Done!

I agree that he is not the worst...I don't understand why everyone wants him to say he is in love...if he isn't he isn't and I commend him for being honest ... Just because he dated 27 women does not guarantee he will find the love of his life in what 10 weeks?! He likes Nikki and wants to see where it goes and if he falls in love he will tell her privately...I get that...is he rude sometimes? Yes but I'm sorry aren't we all at times? He wanted to find love and he has found happiness for now and that should be enough...give him a break!

The language barrier is clearly evident to anyone who has studied multiple languages. He comes off as rude because his speaking ability isn't as advanced as ABC makes it seem.

I think JP is a dog. No offense but he aims to shut every one up with "SO OK!" I watched bits and pieces of the show and honestly I struggled to get any depth from him. As Charlene eloquently put it "no Cerebral connection." Please bring bachelors that can talk and express them. This season sucked.
