‘The Bachelor’ ended with Juan Pablo Galavis being terrible & insulting, of course


Our long national nightmare is over. Last night was the finale of the worst season of The Bachelor ever, although it wouldn’t surprise me at all to learn that this might have been the highest rated season ABC had in a while. Juan Pablo Galavis offended people right and left, he is a misogynist, a bigot and a homophobe and even host Chris Harrison hated him.

I’m not going to climb too far into the weeds on this one (either you watched or you didn’t, and I’m just here for the gossip), so SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the finale. The basics (via People):

Clare Crawley, a hairstylist, and Nikki Ferrell, a nurse, were the final two ladies. Juan Pablo took them on their “final dates” as he tried to choose between them. He ended up choosing Nikki. Nikki got the “final rose” but Juan Pablo did not propose to her, nor did he tell her he loved her during the finale (Nikki said she loved him). Juan Pablo told her: “I’m not going to give [the ring] to you. I’m not 100 percent sure I want to propose to you. But at the same time I’m 100 percent sure that I don’t want to let you go. I like you a lot. A lot.” Ah, such proclamations of love. It’s like a business deal, for God’s sake. But the major drama was with Clare, as you can imagine.

After Juan Pablo introduced Clare to his family in St. Lucia, Clare thought she was going to get The Final Rose. She said, “Juan Pablo definitely has my heart. And now so does his family. I could 1,000 percent see myself a part of Juan Pablo’s family forever.” His final date with Clare was a helicopter ride over the island, but when they landed, Juan Pablo leaned over and whispered something to her. Clare said: “What I thought was going to be sweet, kind, loving words was not what came out of his mouth. And I was shocked. He chose to tell me something that no woman wants to hear. … It was insulting. It was offensive and it just made me feel awful.”

Clare was ready to walk away after that but she ended up staying after Juan Pablo convinced her that she could be The One. Then during The Final Rose Ceremony, he rejected her and then tried to hug her and she pushed him away, saying: “I saved this moment for the man of my dreams and I thought that was you. What you just made me go through – I would never want my children having a father like you.” So, basically, Juan Pablo insulted her and disrespected her but she still wanted to see if he was going to propose and when he didn’t, she was super-pissed. Here’s that clip:

Us Weekly has more details about the After The Rose special which was on, obviously, after the finale. Apparently Clare is still majorly pissed off and Nikki still hasn’t heard “I love you” from Juan Pablo, which is no big surprise considering he has no respect for women who want to be with him in any way. Chris Harrison tried to get Juan Pablo to confess his love or something for Nikki, but he still wouldn’t. And at the end, Juan Pablo declared that he and Nikki are “so done” with the TV show. Buh-bye, Juan Pablo. Don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you.

So, here’s my question: will ABC continue to bait the hate-watchers and choose rampant misogynists and bigots from here on out? Or will they return to form and try to choose a new ‘Bachelor’ who, I dunno, actually likes women? Oh, and one of the Bachelor rejects, Andi Dorfmann, is going to be the new Bachelorette. This is the same girl who Juan Pablo slut-shamed for banging him in a cabana, correct?

    When Juan Pablo was booed by the live audience last night, he looked at Nikki and said, “I don’t get it.” That’s right, he just doesn’t get it and never will.

    Couldn’t stand Clare until last night when she shut him down. As someone else here said last week, “he has the IQ of an oyster.” And No Class.

    • mollination says:

      The one he shamed was Clare. I mean he’s shamed several women….but Andi is the one who gave him the public kiss-off.

      • JudyK says:

        Yes, I watched the whole season. I know Andi was the one who gave him the public kiss-off, but last night Clare ripped him a new one, too, at the final rose ceremony, as well as at the After the Final Rose live show.

  2. aims says:

    This guy is an a hole. He has been nothing short of a bigot jackass. He has offended pretty much everyone across board.

  3. Kali says:

    What did he say? WHAT DID HE SAY?!?

    Ugh, the douche really is strong with this one. Actually, he’s full douchenozzle.

    • JudyK says:

      Clare wouldn’t repeat what he said, but I read elsewhere that, while on the helicopter, he whispered in her ear that he “loved f——” her. Such a swell guy.

    • starrywonder says:

      I really want to know too. Probably something about their time in the ocean knowing this dummy.

    • MissC says:

      I heard this morning on the radio that on the helicopter (when they were not filming), Clare said “Tell me you love me” and he replied “I really loved f***ing you”. GROSS!!!! I think a production assistant tweeted the story or something.

      • Erinn says:

        Ughhh what an ass. However, I have only so much sympathy for women who are competing to marry a guy that they don’t know. I will say though, that nobody deserves to be treated that way.

    • janie says:

      Wow! What a jerk! I’ve never watched the show & caught the ending. I didn’t miss anything by not watching. What a rude, mean guy.

    • ctkat1 says:

      Apparently she asked him if he loved her, and he responded that he “loved fu—ing her.”

    • Mitzi says:

      He said, “you don’t really know me. And I dont really know you. But I have loved f…. Ing you” Clare late said on camera. Apparently one of the reasons she didn’t say what he said was because of being deemed a huge slut. But after she had sex with him in Vietnam in the ocean, ( Clare toasted after the incident ” to finding love, being in love and making love” with a smile to Juan Pablo) then again in the Fantasy Suite which Juan Pablo mentioned….not only that Clare had, had an overnight with him, to Andi. But that they had sex. Which is why Andi was so insulted and angry, along with other reasons. And also why there was such a big melt fown in Vietnam about just “swimming in the ocean” that his daughter might see. Wasnt about the swimming.
      Then the final straw the i loved f….ing you comment. She apparently put all that aside and held on when Juan Pablo told her on their final evening together that he with in a few months ( IF HER CHOSE HER) they would probably be having babies….

  4. SHay says:

    It was actually Claire who had sex with Juan Pablo. Andi chose to leave after the fantasy suite night when he didn’t show any interest in her. And he DID not care at all that she left. Just said “It’s okay”

    He is so irritating. Good luck to Nikki, I’m sure he’s cheated on her already.

  5. Jessica says:

    I thought Claire was the one he slut shamed.

    He’s such a douche. Clearly he doesn’t love Nikki or else he wouldn’t have a problem saying it.

    I wonder what happened two weeks ago that changed everything to where he and Nikki are just now starting their relationship over or whatever it was he said.

    • Meredith says:

      Two weeks ago he still thought he was going to be on Dancing With the Stars. ABC realized they couldn’t let this train wreck be on another show so they replaced him.

    • Chelsey says:

      I’m pretty sure he was counting on being on DWTS, and they were going to move/live where it is taped, but he was then told he wouldn’t be on the show.

      They both seem like complete famewhores.

      I give it 3 months tops.

      • Mitzi says:

        The Dancing With The Stars season that Juan Pablo was picked for was what his “big announcement/surprise” was supposed to be on the ATFR NOT that he was going to propose to Nicki as some websites have speculated. ABC dropped him as they saw his lack of cooperation with the network, disrespect to the producers and Chris Harrison and his super unfavorable fan response.
        Unfortunately for him the DWTS season is probably what he would be really good at. Because he was a horrible bachelor! Why did no one at ABC realize he was a narcissus before naming him as “The Bachelor” ? Maybe they should hire Andi as their interviewer, she can at least call a womanizer a womanizer on national TV in a rational and coherent manner.
        I was Surprised that Clare had sex with Juan Pablo in Vietnam and then after getting verbally “slapped” on national TV, she still thought it was a good idea to do it again in the fantasy suite only to again have it “repeated” as “f…ing her” in her ear before their “romantic date”. She should have seen the writing on the wall in Vietnam.

    • Ashley says:

      Nikki probably watched the show and found out he had sex with Claire. She probably questioned their relationship and then like an idiot gave in to him again. It’s one thing to kiss other girls on the show but to have sex with them is just gross.

      • starrywonder says:

        Ugh I fear your right. I dislike that he pulled the whole slut shame card on Clare. Was she holding him against his will? Then you are an active participant. And his whole comments about losers hiding behind their computers, dummy you agreed to go on this show. With that came people commenting on it. If you act like a jerk people are going to call you out on it. I hope Nikki dumps his dumb self. His own family had nothing good to say about a relationship.

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I have never watched this show, or Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire. I think the concept is degrading to men and women alike. That sounded really judgy, and I didn’t mean for it to. I watch stupid stuff all the time, but I really don’t get the appeal of these shows. They seem so sorted, tacky and fake.

    • V4Real says:

      Laughing at myself. I had to read your comment again, slowly. I thought you meant the game show “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” I was about to ask, how is that show degrading to women.

      But I agree, I only watched two seasons of The Bachelor, not this one. I also don’t like Millionaire Matchmaker but at least those guys know that they are getting involved with golddiggers.

    • Poe says:

      I agree with you about the degrading of women and men alike. A good portion of all these “reality shows” are scripted. I just wish these type of shows would just disappear altogether, but they’re so popular.

    • Skins says:

      I have never watched either, thought I do like some reality shows, but I often wonder, does he bang all of these chicks?

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I don’t know. Good question. How weird to have your sex life on TV. And then get rejected.

  7. Gal says:

    If you have to tell everyone how honest you are or that you’re just being honest – you are not honest! Nikki’s body language during the live show was very telling. Head down, he did most of the talking and then she saying everything was great. BS!!

  8. Heylo says:

    A girl I graduated high school with was on The Bachelor this season. Bleh. She’s still gushing over it…. and what an amazing opportunity and experience it was. Like, really?

    • Sabrina says:

      She probably enjoyed all the free trips. That would be the only benefit on going on such a show.

    • Leah S says:

      A girl I grew up with was also on this season. She, however, is NOT going on about what an excellent opportunity it was. I’m pretty sure use hates his guts from what I can tell. I do know she’s been using it as an opportunity to raise money for charities or some such thjng so at least something good came from it for her.

  9. dizzylucy says:

    His jerkiness is so apparent. It’s a shame on the day they all met him, all the women were like “no thanks” and walked out.
    These shows need to go away. It’s all just fake and horrible.

  10. ZAK says:

    I don’t even watch the show and I hate the guy.

  11. BRE says:

    I’ve known men like this in my life but part of the reason they are like this is that women allow them to be this way. It looks pathetic that ANY of these women would give him a chance, he is a ass and will always be and there will always be women that think they can change him

  12. feebee says:

    Bwahahaha… this was “compelling” television. Even my husband who is meh about this sort of stuff was watching, shaking his head, commenting while sounding totally confused. We both cheered for Claire when she finally stood up. He totally led her to believe but as one of the ex-contestants mentioned, she knew – her intuition was screaming at her and she let the douche bag slime his way over it.

    It was interesting to see the likes of Sean and Catherine there and Sean calling him out also on the public side to this. Chris Harrison missed a golden opportunity to put him away. Maybe he wasn’t allowed to.

    I haven’t seen all the Bachelors and I only saw 1/3 of this but this guy must be the MOST misogynistic, full of s^!t, narcissistic, seriously no clued, “playa” they’ve ever had. Surely! And while I don’t want to call Nikki dumb…. well…. I’ll go with blinded with love because she seriously needs an intervention.

  13. Side-Eye says:

    You’re expecting an I love you from some guy on a television show you pseudo-dated with what ten other girls for couple of weeks? Never mind his known dickishness I just don’t get these shows.

    • Suzy from Ontario says:

      Me either Side-Eye! Love? really? Plus the guy sounds like a major a-hole. Gotta wonder about the lack of self-respect with these women who are willing to put themselves through this. To me it seems degrading.

  14. kibbles says:

    Sadly this shows that the final two ladies lack much needed self respect. At least Clare pushed him away and told him off after he rejected her, but she still wanted a proposal. Up until the point of rejection, she was willing to be with this jerk all in the name of winning a reality dating show. Sad.

    Nikki is still with this guy despite all the evidence pointing to him being an a-hole. He can’t even admit that he loves her. She needs to run as far away from him as possible. Have some self-respect and dump him before he dumps you, Nikki. Because he will very soon.

    It’s funny that ABC tried to sell him as the first Bachelor-of-color. Would not be the least bit surprised if they choose another douchy exotic South American or Mediterranean white man whom they will try to pass off as a minority.

    • CoolWhipLite says:

      Well said, kibbles. If Clare had gotten the proposal (or whatever that was), she would have been pleased as punch, and she would have swept his toolery under the rug (or buried it in the sand, as it were). Yeah, she threw shade when he was breaking it off with her, but she should have done it ages ago.

      Both women need behavioral counseling in the area of self-esteem. Some shots of common sense wouldn’t hurt either. It was pathetic to watch Nikki on ATFR — one minute, she was visibly uncomfortable with JP’s ‘tude. The next minute, he puts one arm around her, a hand on her knee, and she’s all giggles and grins. She wasn’t able to detect the manipulation and BS, even as it hit her in the face.

      Mike Fleiss, Chris Harrison, and the other bigwigs got what they wanted: a livewire who would increase ratings. So, too bad if JP game them hell throughout the season. You get what you pay for. Next go-round, maybe they’ll return to their usual equation of “famewhores” plus “family issues” plus “weak self-esteem.”

  15. littlestar says:

    Maybe I am old fashioned, but I don’t understand why any of the girls bothered to have sex with him. You don’t even know him! Going on a couple of dates with him (often with several other women too), does not mean you are even close to knowing the kind of person he is. Why not wait to get to know the person before letting him put his penis inside of you? These girls did not do that and now they very likely have penis regret. Anyway, this guy gives me the willies. And he is Grade A STOOPID.

    • MissMoody says:

      I don’t need to know a guy’s favorite color before I let him stick his peen inside me. I just have to be sexually attracted to him.

  16. ctkat1 says:

    The two women who left both cited a lack of mental connection as the reason- Sharleen the opera singer (who was NOT a typical contestant for this show) said in so many words that he was too dumb to talk to, and Andi the prosecutor left after the fantasy suite when he spent the whole time talking about himself, name dropping, and being completely uninterested in her.

    For this franchise, this never airs- people leave (never two in a season), but their reasons are always “nice”: I miss my kids too much, it’s not fair to take the place of someone with whom you might have a real chance at happiness when I know it’s not me, etc. The person never leaves because they dislike the Bachelor/Bachelorette. So ABC and the producers must really dislike Juan Pablo if this is how they edited the show, because they have had slightly sleazy/stupid/disinterested Bachelors before and disappointed contestants and they still craft it as a “fairy tale.”

  17. Baskingshark says:

    OK, so I have never watched this crapfest and this guy seems like a massive douchebag, but seriously:

    “I saved this moment for the man of my dreams and I thought that was you. What you just made me go through – I would never want my children having a father like you.”

    Lady, you – like all the other women on this show (and the guy) and every other reality show – are a tacky famewhore who just spent a couple of months competing for the “affections” of some random dude on national television in order to get publicity. Don’t come over all pissed off that this isn’t the stars-and-rainbows twu wuv love of your life. I suspect you’re less upset that this isn’t the man of your dreams and more mad that you won’t get to partake of what little post-show publicity the “happy couple” get.

    Also, what did he say to her? “I’ll pick you if we can do an*l?”

    • starrywonder says:

      When he initially responded to her love question he said no I don’t love you but I enjoy (swear word) you. Which is why Clare was so angry. I was hoping she would call him out and leave but then he did that whole puppy dog eyes thing and made her feel like she was going to be the one he picked. I feel for Clare because she acted like someone 10 years younger than she. She had sex with the guy and thought that meant something to him. It didn’t especially after he pretty much told her she was a slut in Vietnam after the night they had together.

  18. Izzy says:

    He lives in his parents’ basement and does nothing meaningful with his life. Only on The Bachelor would that NOT be considered an instant deal-breaker.

    • holly hobby says:

      Hahah! You described him to a tee. In the real world, he would be called a “loser.”

  19. Jazz says:

    I’ve never heard of this guy until today and I already hate him! He needs a golddigging bitch to make his life miserable. 🙂

  20. stinky says:

    does he really live in the basement??

  21. alihar says:

    I usually watch every season. It didn’t take long for me to not be able to even stomach listening to him. I stopped at episode 3 which I have never done. Every clip I saw after that…..only reinforced why I was glad I didn’t keep watching. Hes a clueless dbag.
    I’d feel sorry for Nikki but I hear she is no prize either so maybe they deserve each other.

    • CoolWhipLite says:

      I have taught English Language Learners in elementary school who have a more robust vocabulary than this dolt. I read that he has lived in the US since he was 17 years old. I can only surmise that the guy is not into reading, and he makes no attempt at sounding like he’s older than 5 years old. Seriously, his word choices and the length of his utterances (the ones that showed some form of coherent thought) show that his morphology, syntax, and semantics are similar to those of 5 – 7 year olds.

  22. taxi says:

    Why is this show popular? Women delude & demean themselves competing for attention & affection(?) from a wanna-be harem master. Listening to chronologically adult females weep on camera, with audio, for public broadcast about wanting to be “chosen” is pathetic-distasteful. What happens to them after the show? Is this supposed to give them an entree into the entertainment biz? Or do they go back home identified as failures at the faux mating-game, stripped of privacy & dignity?

    • MissMoody says:

      They become famous! Which apparently is worth the loss of one’s dignity and respect. But hey, don’t forget there’s a Bachelorette too where men delude and demean themselves to compete for a woman’s affection and attention. That’s the best.

  23. booger says:

    Can someone please explain the logic of douches slut shaming the people they sleep with? Did they not sleep with them too? Do they not see that by their reasoning, they’re sluts as well?

  24. snowflake says:

    i hate that show b/c it instills in women false expectations, that relationships are always romantic and there is “the one.” i used to watch it, but then at one point, i woke up and realized it was not reality and real life is nothing like that. and c’mon, every single bachelor is good looking, sucessful and single? there’s a red flag right there that’s something wrong with them. give me a normal, average guy any day. most of the bachelors seem full of themselves.

    juan’s the classic double standard guy: i effed you and that’s ok for me, but that mean you’re not wife material. but he effed em!

  25. laura says:

    He is clearly a disgusting person. That said, I do not for one second believe that people form real relationships anand fall in love on these shows. They’re looking for their 15 minutes, money, real acting careers. There is no question that he treated these women badly, and he cannot be excused for his misogyny and homophobia, but these women who claimed that they could see themselves with him forever were full of s**t and of questionable integrity too. Oh, he’s so awful, but take the ring if he offers it? Yuck … All of them … Yuck.

  26. joan says:

    Women did not march in the streets and burn their bras to end up with a show like this in 2014.

    The idea that any female talks about this show as if it’s anything but a big joke just shocks me. Every time.

    Are you diehard romantics?

    Or diehard golddiggers?

    Or just not very bright?

  27. Source says:

    What a douchebag. OMG. Talk about not taking any responsibility for your own actions!

    Each time he opens his mouth, something horrible comes out.

    As for the “big announcement” that wasn’t DWTS. According to Reality Steve (who always has the Bachelor/Bachelorette spoilers) the part about their relationship situation changing within the past couple of weeks had to do w/DWTS, while the “big announcement” had to do with JP punking the producers and telling them he was going to propose to Nikki, which he never had any intention of doing.
