Juan Pablo is the ABSOLUTE WORST.
I would go so far as to suggest that he’s the worst bachelor in bachelor history. Even worse than Brad, who was the bachelor twice and still ended up alone. In his second season, he didn’t pick either woman. In retrospect that was probably for the best – if you are the bachelor twice and you still end up alone, there could be something wrong with you, or at the very least with the way you treat women.
This season has been painfully awkward. Initially I was amused, watching Juan Pablo struggle through basic conversations. By the third episode, however, I was tired of his excuses, mainly “English isn’t my first language”. I call bullshit. Juan Pablo has no difficulty seducing women, pulling out all the stops, to get in their pants, albeit with the help of the producers and the bachelor team.
The issue I have with Juan Pablo is that he uses his daughter to get out of things. To be clear, I am not saying he is a bad father nor am I questioning his parenting abilities. I simply have an issue with the excuse “ I have a daughter”. He didn’t worry about the ramifications when he was frolicking with “let me kiss you” Clare in the ocean after 2am (we all know nothing good happens after 2am). He wasn’t concerned about his daughter’s perception of him when he told Andi she was essentially his consolation prize. He wasn’t worried that people may tell his daughter that her father is a giant asshole. He did feign concern, however, when he didn’t want to kiss Renee or Cassandra. Ironically, he locked lips with both Sharleen and Clare in that particular episode.
What I don’t understand is why Juan Pablo went through all this trouble to sleep with a few women. I find it hard to believe that he was having a hard time finding consenting women in his home town. Due to the fact that he didn’t propose or profess his love to Nikki, I have reason to believe that he has no intention of getting married. I believe he used this experience to travel the world and seriously inflate his ego.
Thanks to the wonderful world of the internet, but mainly just thanks to twitter, it’s easy to find other Juan-Pablo-Haters. Some of the best tweets:
Don’t worry Juan Pablo. “IS OK”. Maybe Dancing with the Stars will reach out in 10 years, for the has been has-beens season. XOXO, women everywhere
