IT’S OFFICIAL! The new Bachelor is………….

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?

Ashley and J.P. Did NOT Wait For Marriage!

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, the newest Bachelorette couple who famously are waiting to have sex on their their wedding night, are very different than their show’s alumna Ashley Hebert and  J.P. Rosenbaum!

That is, Ashley and J.P. didnt’ wait to get BUSY!

“I don’t even know where to go with that one,” Rosenbaum tells People when asked about the subject on Thursday.  “It’s a belief and we don’t share it.”

The pair tied the knot at the Langham hotel in Pasadena, California, but spent a lot of time getting to know each other (romantically speaking!) before then. Still, the duo respects Lowe and Giudici’s decision.

“Those are their own personal beliefs and we’re not going to judge them,” Rosenbaum says. “We do our thing, they do their thing.”

Adds Hebert with a laugh: “More power to ‘em! I admire people who can do that, you know what I mean? I’m not interested in it, but … I think that shows a lot of strength.”

You’re telling me!  I also respect Ashley and J.P. for being outspoken on their decidedly more modern views on sexuality!  It’s a free country, everyone gets to do their thang!

Sean Lowe (a “born again virgin”) and his new fiance Catherine are waiting until marriage to have sex.

I knew it! No wonder there’s such a huge rush to get married! They’re waiting to have sex! I was raised Baptist, and so I definitely understand the waiting for marriage thing, but I do think it can be tricky. There IS such a thing as people being sexually incompatible. I think sleeping around is wrong – and hurts people, ultimately, but waiting for marriage is hard too. It’s a very fine line, I guess.

Millions watched their romantic proposal in Thailand – and now The Bachelor’s newly engaged Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici can finally proclaim their love to the world.

“I’m just so excited that the secret is out,” Lowe tells PEOPLE.

Adds Giudici: “Now, we can be a normal couple and hold hands in public!”

Hold hands they will, but Lowe and Giudici have vowed to save being intimate until after the wedding.

“From my perspective, I’ve lived life kind of selfishly for a long time,” says Lowe, a conservative Christian and born-again virgin. “Now, I’m going to try to live it the way I know to be right.”

As for his bride-to-be’s feelings on the topic? “I honor him,” she says.

The pair, who announced they will tie the knot on a televised special for ABC, most likely don’t have too long of a wait, though.

“I’m a guy. I’d go to the courthouse tomorrow if she’d let me,” says Lowe. “We just fit so well together. We both know it’s right.”

So yeah, this wedding thing is probably going to happen very, very quickly. :)

Bachelor Recap: Sean Lowe proposes to Catherine Giudici!

I guess I can’t give you an appropriate recap because I actually didn’t even see the full episode. I have to fast-forward 1:45 ahead – and watch just the proposal. I can’t stand any of the stuff leading up to it. I really didn’t like Chris Harrison’s live-audience-bit either. I don’t care what the audience thinks – let’s just get to it!

One thing that annoyed me – was how much ABC was playing up this STUPID LETTER – and come to find out, it was just from Catherine! Always inflating the drama – I’m OVER it. (Until next season, of course.)

In the end Sean picked Catherine over Lindsay. Honestly, I didn’t like his final two – AT ALL…but after seeing Sean and Catherine together at the end, I might have cracked a smile. Okay fine, they are pretty cute together.

When the couple sat with Chris at the ‘After the Rose Ceremony,’ they announced that they were wasting NO TIME in getting married (is this because Sean has vowed to remain a virgin until he gets married?).

After Monday’s emotional Bachelor finale, Sean Lowe and his new fiancée, Catherine Giudici, appeared on ABC’s After the Final Rose special for the first time in public as a couple – and spoke to host Chris Harrison about what’s next.

“A marriage follows a proposal,” Sean said. “We don’t have a date yet, but we have decided that we think it would be cool, since our relationship started and it was developed and cultivated on a TV show – we’ll have our wedding on a TV show. And ABC will cover the wedding.”

Harrison was thrilled with the announcement that the newest Bachelor couple will have a televised wedding, just like former Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum.

“You are going to get married – we don’t have a date yet – very soon,” Harrison said.

“Soon,” Catherine said. “I don’t see why there would be any waiting period. I want to be his wife.”

And Sean agreed: “I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I can’t wait to have the wedding,” he said. “If it were up to me I’d go to the courthouse and get it done.”

“It just so happens, I am ordained,” Harrison replied. “We could do this.”

Catherine quickly asked, “Do you have a dress?” And Sean suggested that their families might be upset if they took their vows without them.

“We have never had a couple like this,” Chris said, “to come out of the gate so sincere, so serious and ready to take that next step … Congratulations, it really is beautiful.”

As they plan their wedding, Chris asked if they’ll be moving to Sean’s hometown, Dallas.

“Life is so crazy right now,” Sean said. “I’ve figured out one thing: don’t plan your life out because God is going to throw you a curve ball real fast. But she’s packed her bags and whatever happens, we’re going to do it together.”

What do you think about who Sean picked in the end??
