It’s been widely speculated that Season 18’s Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis went on the show hoping for fame rather than love. Now that the dust has settled on his season and the world is turning its rose-colored gaze to the next Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, could JPG be worried his star is fading? And is that worry enough to get the bad boy to kiss a little ABC tush by flying straight for awhile?
If his appearance in the audience at last night’s DWTS is any indication, the answer may be a resounding yes. He attended with Bachelor Season 18 winner Nikki Ferrell firmly in tow and Juan Pablo and Nikki both took to Twitter yesterday about attending DWTS. And both were sure to make it clear that they were there at the invitation of ABC.
Nikki started off the ABC love fest with her tweet, “Picked up a few moves from Latin night on #DWTS Thank you @DancingABC for having @JuanPaGalavis and I!” JPG retweeted his Lady Love Likes-a-Lot, and added his own thoughts by stating, “Had a BLAST tonight with @Nikki_Ferrell, THANKS to @DancingABC for the INVITATION…”
Juan Pablo was rumored to be in talks to be on this season’s DWTS, but was reportedly dropped from the show due to some not-so-awesome anti-gay comments he made, among other missteps.
Rumors of JPG getting kicked off the casting couch were fueled on the Bachelor’s “After the Final Rose” special when Chris Harrison tried to get Juan Pablo to open up about his and Nikki’s future. The convo was typical JPG awkward, but El Bachelor did reveal “Around ‘Women Tell All,’ producers told me some things. And plans changed dramatically.” We speculated that what “changed dramatically” were his plans for being on DWTS. Had he been picked for the show, he and Nikki would have moved to LA for filming. Since they allegedly booted him, his crystal ball got hazy.
JPG could be cozying up to ABC again for himself, or he might be trying to help Nikki climb the fame ladder. Nikki was recently spotted grabbing a drink with Bachelor producers. It’s a very close family over there, and drinking with producers of one show seems to lead to dancing with others. It’s an interesting speculation to consider, especially since Nikki hate, hate, hated dancing in South Korea on The Bachelor 2014’s fourth episode. With such an advertised aversion for dancing, we think she’d make a pretty compelling addition to the DWTS family. She’s even been coming out of her shell as of late, attending a charity dance just a few days ago with her leading man.
What do you think, did JPG and Nikki have ulterior motives for attending the DWTS show Monday night?
