Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis’s Tribute to Eric Hill: “I Wish I Was as Adventurous”
By many people’s standards, Juan Pablo Galavis is one adventurous guy. The Bachelor Season 18 star left his native Venezuela to pursue a career in soccer, and then went on national television — twice — to find love. But, based on a recent pic he posted to Instagram, the former futbol star feels like he could up his game in the adventure-seeking arena.
El Bachelor posted this sweet tribute to The Bachelorette’sdeceased fan favorite Eric Hill, lauding Eric’s no-holds-barred approach to life. In the photo, JPG sports a #LiveLikeEric T-shirt and captions the pic, “I WISHED I was as adventurous as ERIC… #LiveLikeEric #AlwaysBeRemeber.” Despite the spelling errors (we know, language barrier), it’s great to see Juan.P using hisBachelor fame to honor Eric’s memory.
A 31-year-old adventurer, Eric quickly won fans’ hearts with his open and honest nature, his positive outlook on life, and his dimples. His exit during Episode 4 of Andi Dorfman’s season was especially hard to take, knowing that that was the last fans would see of the handsome rose-seeker.
Eric’s family started the Live Like Eric Foundation in his memory “to carry out acts of extreme philanthropy that provide service and relief, increase cultural awareness, eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and provide joy and wonder.” The shirt JPG has on in his Instagram photo is for sale on the foundation’s website.
