Ever since he got down on one knee and proposed to Catherine Giudici in Thailand, I've been sort of wishy-washy as to how I really feel about him. But after hearing Sean Lowe slam Juan Pablo Galavis for refusing to open up to fans about his relationship with Nikki Ferrell, I'm officially hopping on the Lowe-lovin' bandwagon.
In typical Sean fashion, he started things off on a positive note to express his feelings about the finale of The Bachelor and what went down on the "After the Final Rose" special. He tweeted, "My take on last night: I commend JP on not proposing if he isn't ready. And he certainly shouldn't feel pressured to say 'I love you.'"
But then he told us how he really feels.
However, as the bachelor you can't say I want to keep my feelings private. You owe it to the fans and network to open up. That's the job.— Sean Lowe (@SeanLowe09) March 11, 2014
Can I get an A-freakin-MEN? Juan P. obviously has some sort of a bone to pick with ABC about how his season went down in the end, which is probably why he's acting like a spoiled brat and remaining tight-lipped on whether or not he and Nikki are still together (for real).

But as Sean said, he owes it to fans to let us in on the rest of the story -- because that's part of the gig he signed up for. How can you go on national TV in search of a wife (or f*** buddy) and expect to be left alone after it's all said and done? I know he's relied on the language barrier excuse for quite some time, but Juan Pablo can't be dumb enough to think that his private life isn't going to remain public for months on end.
Sure, it's tough living your life in the spotlight, as Sean Lowe knows all too well. He took his fair share of heat for plenty of things, including choosing to save himself for marriage -- but at least he didn't try and hide anything from his fans.
Juan Pablo can clam up all he wants to, but odds are good it will only make people hound him even more for information. If he really wants any sort of normal life, he might as well tell us all what we want to hear. And fast.
Do you think Juan Pablo owes it to fans to open up?
