There is no doubt in my mind that Juan Pablo Galavis is now officially the most hated Bachelor of all time. Whether that is fair or not is a matter of opinion. The one thing that is indisputable, however, is that this guy can't help but put his foot in his mouth. A week after that disastrous "After the Final Rose" interview, he's at it again. And this time he's slamming runner-up Clare Crawley.
In his first press interview, he let us all know what he really thinks of Clare and her angry outburst on the finale.
"It was very tough for me to say goodbye to Clare, but she made it easier with her reaction. She was expecting me to propose, I get it, but you don't have to come at me like that," he tells People. He goes on to say, "It was childish. She disappointed me." And he also made a quip about Andi Dorfman's exit: "Like with Andi, we don't have to talk about what happened or didn't happen. Just go."
Oh, Juan Pablo. Will you ever learn? He may have ruined his one chance at redemption. I was once a HUGE fan -- and to be honest, I don’t hate him as much as everyone else in America -- but these comments are just plain stupid. Here’s how he needs to answer the next time these women's names are brought up: First off, he should try to see it from their perspective. He should say how he understands that they are angry and embarrassed and that he's sorry for that.
Then he needs to turn the tables on the situation. He should apologize for his brutal honesty, but add that he didn't want to lie to them, even if what he said hurt them. He then must admit that he has a lot of growing and maturing to do and that this show has taught him a lot about communication and love. That if he had it to do over again, he would do it differently.
Lastly, he should bring up why he didn't propose. That rushing into marriage is foolish and rash. That he wants his union to be forever and that after the Bachelor cameras are gone is when he and Nikki will really get to know one another and fall in love with their true selves.
Now who would argue with that? If he doesn’t want to keep looking like the world’s biggest douche, he'll heed this advice.
