The Bachelor

Juan Pablo Galavis Gives Advice to Bachelor Chris Soules, Sparks Twitter Backlash

It’s pretty clear to us that ABC picked their newest Bachelor 2015 Chris Soules for the main fact that he’s pretty much the anti-Juan Pablo Galavis. Unlike his “ees OK” spewing predecessor, Chris is an all-American farmer who appears serious about finding a wife and has no problem playing The Bachelor’s game to get there. And yet, Juan Pablo still felt like he had some knowledge to impart onto the Iowan.

After Chris was officially announced this week, Nikki Ferrell’s boyfriend took to Twitter, writing, “CONGRATS to the NEW Bachelor @C_Soules... Make YOUR decisions, follow your HEART, have FUN and ALWAYS stay true to YOURSELF #NotNegotiable.”

While it’s nice to see that JPG is looking out for his fellow Bachelors, we can’t help but feel like this oddly-emphasized (per usual) tweet was loaded with subtext directed at the ABC producers. He’s telling the Iowan to follow his heart, so does that mean he felt pressured to do otherwise on his Season 18?

Whatever the intentions may be, it’s clear that Twitter fans weren’t really feeling Juanny Pabs playing mentor to the dimpled one. One follower replied, “Words of advice... don't take advice from Juan Pablo,” while another added, “I'm pretty sure he doesn't need any advice from you of all people.”

Eesh. Can’t a guy just give his successor some pointers? Guess not.
