This week on The Bachelor, we learned Sharleen Joynt wants to be seen as a panda in a room full of brown bears. And with that, she edged a step closer to actually being a good match for Juan Pablo Galavis. ‘Cause, honestly, that’s the kind of wackadoo line he might actually get.
But the promo for Monday’s Season 18, Episode 6 hints to dark times ahead for Team JuanSharlo, with our tearful girl saying she’s not sure Juan Pablo “understands” her, and she might want to leave. It’s a little surprising to see that since, in a deleted scene from after Episode 5, Sharleen and Juan Pablo sat down to see if they were on the same page, and they seemed to get along OK.
Shar asked him to list a few of his must-haves for The One. Because his priorities are clearly in line, Juan Pabs first answered, "She has to dance very good." Sharleen said she can dance … when she's drunk. "When I'm drunk, I'm amazing." Wrong answer! He doesn't even drink. Next, he wants someone who can joke around and be sarcastic. "You know what's boring? Somebody who doesn't get the jokes." His third must-have was someone who cared about other people.
Sharleen agreed with that kind-hearted one, then shared her four must-haves. First was "being on the same wavelength." She even described all the wavelengths, making a strange ball reference, then having it hit her in the head (it's the soccer game all over again). Her second must-have was reliability, someone being there for you whether it's a big or small thing. Her third was stability, "someone who has their sh-t together." Fourth for her was "magnetic chemistry" between two people; it's either there or it isn't. He asked if she felt it with him. "I wouldn't be here if I didn't feel it," she said. But she also feels like you shouldn't have to ask someone if they feel it, you should just know.
All in all, her answers were a little more practical than his, but they seem … eh … kinda close to fitting, and it looked like a good sign that they both gave each other's lists a lot of thought. They really wanted to see if they'd work together. But maybe only Juan Pablo left the talk thinking they actually could be a match.
Can you understand how we go from this talk to Sharleen's latest "what am I doing here?!” freak out? Do you think this chat helps to convince her they aren’t on the same wavelength? And why didn't he mention needing someone who wants kids?!
