Juan Pablo Galavis never ceases to amaze us. Most recently, he's made some pretty outrageous claims about the producers of The Bachelor -- and he's pretty much blaming them for every bad decision he made on the show.

Our favorite Bachelor Nation villain did a radio interview with The Domenick Nati Show, and claimed that the producers on the show tried to get him to strip down to his birthday suit.

The notorious reality star appeared on The Bachelorette in 2013, and starred as The Bachelor in 2014, and according to him, the producers "make you do things or try to make you do things."

According to Us Weekly, he explained on the radio interview, "It all depends on you. If you're strong enough and you have a strong personality and you don't do things you don't want to do, you just don't it. But they suggest you a lot of things. At the end of the day, it's a decision that people have to make on the show. Obviously, they don't like it when you don't make good decisions they want you to make. They edit a little bit on TV so they make you look like whatever they want you to look like .... If you have strong character and you don't want to do things, you just say no."

Clearly advice he took to heart when they suggested that he propose to Nikki Ferrell at his final rose ceremony. Or you know, even say that he loved her. Whatevs.

Anyway, JP said the producers tried to get him to show off all his assets by skinny-dipping. "It could be like, they could tell somebody, 'Oh, it would be great if you go to the ocean and get naked and just go into the ocean,'" he claimed. "You're like, 'Well, I have a daughter. I don't want to go naked on TV into the ocean. I don't believe in that.'"

And apparently the producers didn't believe in helping him further his reality TV career, because Juan Pabs revealed that they kept him from competing on Dancing With the Stars. "I was gonna do it and people from The Bachelor, the executive producer and the owner, didn't let, they didn't allow me after my season," he claimed. "When I had my time that they wanted me, the people from the show didn't let me, so I don't know if that opportunity will come back sometime. You never know."

So basically, if he came off looking like a dick, that was the producers' faults, either for suggesting things, or editing the footage. Or something.

Oh well, all's well that ends well, and Juan Pablo eventually did find love -- with Venezuelan TV personality Osmariel Villalobos. The two met through mutual friends and started communicating over Instagram, and wed just last month in a secret ceremony in Miami. Now that's a truly modern love story.
