Juan Pablo Slams Clare Crawley & Ruins His Chance at Redemption

juan pabloThere 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. 

What do you think of Juan Pablo's comments about Clare?

I was hoping Clare would be the one picked at the end all along because I couldn't stand Nikki but as it turns out Nikki and JP are made for each other. Clare's luckiest day ever.

It's a show where a dude dates thirty random women for a while and everyone knows he just picks one. I think the women have some growing up to do honestly.

Clare deserved everything she got. Look when she went to his hotel uninvited in the middle of the night. She was just upset because she's a slut and America saw it on tv.

I did like him at the beginning but the more I watched the show, the more I began to dislike him. I don't know if its because he's from another country or what, but it seems to me that what he's looking for is somebody that is going to give him everything he wants without any regard to what she wants. I think as long as his needs are being met, that's all that is important. I don't see any relationship lasting too long with him anytime soon unless he finds a woman that doesn't mind being a doormat and doesn't know how to speak her mind. Maybe he'd be better suited for somebody from his own country.

He knew what the show was about and if he didn't think he could fall in love and propose, than he shouldn't of done the show. His double standards with the women, made them look cheap and him a hypocrite.

Sandy McEwen

Claire also knew what the show was about and wanting him to disclose the love the night before so she could bail and save face is not right! We all know it comes down to two and it is I who thinks Claire was way out of line. Like the saying goes "nothing like a woman scorned" she knew what she was getting into and she broke many rules as far as I'm concerned! She acted inappropriately and she got treated and spoke to because of how she acted! If she was a lady then maybe he wouldn't have said those things! Maybe that was their way of talking sexually to each other in the fantasy suite and it all came to a head, pardon the pun! Drama drama drama!

I agree I didn't care for Juan either, but I was mad when they chose him anyway! I didn't like him on the bachelorette either! So there ya go!

I agree with Sandy, pretty much word for word....the girls know exactly what they are getting into and how the show works! Clare shoould have been more gracious at the end, rather than getting so mean that he didn't choose her.

It's saddens me that The Bachelor did a poor job choosing JP on The Bachelorett and The Bachelor. He was a poor choice for nothing other than his language and his understanding of the English language which is not that great. Because of this, this poor man is being bashed for not properly wording his feelings correctly in specific detail. I am a Mexican woman who have Spanish speaking parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc whom I have been around all my life and I can pick up a lick of Spanish to save my life. Knowing another language is more difficult than u may think. Bottom line. Don't put someone on a show about love because to be in love you have to know what love is and how to communicate. If u can't communicate then how can you find love? This may be the reason JP couldn't find love. So don't bash him for that. He has made mistakes. But dont make whore Clare out to be a saint. She put herself our there to be bashed and that's what she gets.

Juan Pablo needs to grow up,and stop being so self centered in thinking only of himself.
