Juan Pablo Galavis!
Desiree Hartsock sent him packing in episode six of this season of the Bachelorette, and now Juan is getting his second chance at love on ABC. Beginning in January 2014, it will be Juan’s turn to hand out roses!
“It was hard to make the decision. It’s a great responsibility, because I’m going to find, hopefully, the person who’s going to be with me and my daughter,” Juan Pablo said after Chris Harrison made the big announcement.
The 32-year-old former soccer stud — who has a 4-year-old daughter, Camila, from a previous relationship — earned an early following this season thanks to his sexy accent, easy charm, and doting dad act. (Des has said his exit resulted in the most “hate mail” from viewers.)
“In the history of this show, no guy has made a greater impact with less screen time than our soccer-playing single dad,” Harrison said of the Bachelor-to-be during the “Men Tell All” special earlier this season, where audience members showed their love for him with homemade “Juan Pablo” T-shirts. “He’s the fan favorite we barely got to know!”
Viewers will certainly get to know him more next season, when he begins anew his search for love. “Right now, I am almost 32 years old. I really want a family,” he shared on “Men Tell All,” adding that he would like to “settle down and have a wife and two more kids.”
I didn’t watch Desiree’s season of The Bachelorette (I cannot STAND that show!) so I didn’t get to see Juan Pablo. Did you watch? Will he make a good Bachelor?
