Was this not the worst season of The Bachelor – or what!? I have to admit, I watched about 80% of this season. I fast-forwarded so much of it, you could barely say I watched it…. but I did make it to the finale. You know it’s not a good sign when not one – but two – women leave early because of what a douche Juan Pablo Galavis is. He’s an offensive, bigot and sexist man, and at the end everyone (including Chris Harrison) couldn’t wait to be done with him.
In the finale, Juan Pablo narrowed it down to two women, Clare Crawley and Nikki Ferrell. After whispering an offensive comment to Clare in a helicopter, Clare had decided to leave…. but Juan convinced her to stay, and told her it was worth it. “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.”
In the end he chose Nikki over Clare, and Clare didn’t go down without a fight. “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.” During the After the Rose Ceremony, we learn that Clare still isn’t over being burned, but in my opinion, she should be glad she’s free of such a douchebag.
In the end Juan chose Nikki, but didn’t propose. He didn’t even tell her that he loved her. He said he liked her…. a lot. “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.”
During the After the Rose Ceremony, Juan Pablo still wouldn’t tell Nikki that he loved her, and I’m sure by time they left the building, they were broken up. It seemed very obvious that they were only together for this reunion. There’s no way they’re going to make it as a couple. No way in hell.
At the end of the show last night, they officially announced that Andi Dorfman would be the next Bachelorette. Most people seem pretty excited about that – what do you think? Will you watch?
