We think Juan Pablo Galavis is perfecto, but it seems some folks don’t agree with that sentiment. Late night host Jimmy Kimmel sent the muy guapo Bachelor out on the streets of L.A. to interview passersby about their feelings both about the show and its latest star... but without telling them that he’s the man with the roses. And, as is usually the case on Jimmy Kimmel Live, hilarity ensued.
“What do you think of The Bachelor?” Juan asked. Responses ranged from “idiotic” to “pretty gross.” What’s gross about one dude dating 27 girls? Oh, yeah. The girl does have a point.
One man on the street tells Juan Pablo that he doesn’t watch because he “has a life,” while a guy wearing an Indiana Jones hat and a superhero tee put air quotes around the idea that the women cast as the Bachelor’s potential life mate aren’t all that beautiful. What are you even talking about, dude? Let’s see a picture of your girlfriend, Peter Parker!
Perhaps our favorite part of the whole segment is when JPG shows a cute, outspoken Aussie a glossy of his promo pic from his stint on The Bachelorette — and the girl then enumerates all the ways that Juan Pablo looks nothing like, well, himself.
We gotta give Juan major props for his ability to take criticism about his former deep-V-ing, faux-hawking ways in stride. It’s hard out there for a single dad, but if you’re willing to reflect and grow, you may just find yourself a woman in that sleazy, idiotic (hey — their words, not ours) journey we call The Bachelor.
