“Everyone on the show is just so over him and cannot wait for this season to be over,” a source connected with the dating competition series told us.
“His anti-gay comment happened the weekend of Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s wedding which completely overshadowed all the hard work everyone put in for it and practically ruined Sean and Catherine’s special weekend.”
The insider added that producers and crew members have never been so ready for a season of the Bachelor to end.
“It has not been anyone’s favorite, that’s for sure.”
Nor mine. I really think he’s the worst they’ve ever had. Note to producers: an accent is not a personality.
Have you been watching? DISCUSS! BACHELOR POST!

Juan Pablo Galavis, this season’s Bachelor, is a fucking hot ass mess. Sure, he’s “handsome” if that’s your thing, but he’s kind of a dickhead. You see, a while back he was asked about the possibility of a gay Bachelor season, and he got all up in arms saying it would never work since gay people are “more pervert” and would be a bad influence on kids. Uh… okay.
Of course, people got really pissed off about that and called him for it, so he tried to explain that it was a language barrier thing, which I find really hard to believe, but since that defense wasn’t really flying, he’s now using the gay relative as evidence of his lack of homophobia. LOL, classic.
From Good Morning America/ABC News:
“I have a cousin who is gay. His sister is a nun. So it’s been around my house all my life,” Galavis said today on “Good Morning America.” ”So, to me, it was a misunderstanding.”
“It’s been hard because, to me, when I speak English, it happened to me two months of filming, sometimes the words that I used were not interpreted the way that they should be interpreted, or I use a wrong word,” Galavis said on “GMA.” “So I will go on my phone, Google and find the right word and do it that way.”
“It was a misuse of a word,” Galavis said of his use of “pervert” in explaining that having a gay bachelor would make the show “too strong… too hard to watch” and not a “good example for kids.”
“I have many gay friends and one of my closest friends who’s like a brother has been a constant in my life especially during the past five months,” Galavis wrote.
The single dad confirmed that he had spoken to officials with GLAAD and that the two sides “made sense between each other.”
LOL, whatever, dude. You don’t like gay people and think they’re icky, we get it. Wonderful ideals to be passing down to your daughter, as well. Nothing like a bit of prejudice against others to spread love and understanding in the world.
After all, what’s a bigger threat to families and goodness and morality than two people of the same sex loving each other in a committed relationship? I can’t think of anything, and certainly not a televised reality series in which women compete to win your love, you sleep with multiple of them and then pick one and break up with her a few months after production stops. Naw!

The Bachelor is coming back pretty soon, guys. Are you excited? I know I am. And I mean that, because The Bachelorette was a trainwreck and I’m hoping for more “choo choo!” to come. Your Bachelor is Juan Pablo Galavis, a reject from the previous Bachelorette season. According to E Online, “The Bachelor’s 18th season premieres Monday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m.”
What do you think? Is Juan Pablo your type? (Is “sexy Latin soccer player” your type?) Will you be watching?
Here’s a video to introduce you to Mr. Galavis:
