Juan Pablo Galavis Is Getting Engaged and 14 More Things He’s Done Since ‘Bachelor’

It might be time to shift our opinions of Juan Pablo Galavis a bit.

Sure, three years ago the Bachelor 2014 star ended his season as one of the most controversial leads in franchise history. But since he drifted away from the spotlight, he’s turned things around, focusing on his daughter, career, and now, his potential future wife, Osmariel Villalobos!

According to Us Weekly sources, Nikki Ferrell’s ex is “close to getting engaged” to the TV host and model, so we thought it was time to catch up on the 35-year-old’s life post-show.

Before meeting and falling in love with Osmariel, JPG was not shy about his interest in JoJo, gushing about the many “good things” he’s read about her and teasing how he might “sign up” for her season. Alas, he did not.

The ex-soccer star met the fellow Venezuelan and former beauty queen last summer, and friends say she’s “perfect” for him. 

“She’s beautiful, she’s into sports like he is and they both love dancing,” an insider says of the 28-year-old gal.

Apparently, he has yet to finalize the details of the proposal, but he’s already picked out the ring and “she’ll definitely say yes.” Partially, the source says, thanks to how well she gets along with his daughter, Camila.

“All of Juan’s family and friends love her. They have talked about marriage and both know it’s what they want,” the insider reveals.

Juan Pablo wasn’t unscathed by ex Andi Dorfman’s tell-all memoir, It’s Not Okay. 

She writes, “He blasted Ray J and R. Kelly all night long and showed me dozens of videos of his old soccer highlights on YouTube. There was no getting to know me, no romance, and there was most definitely no fantasy involved in the evening.”

Music videos aren’t the only thing he acted in last year! The Venezuelan hunk appeared as the overprotective brother in the “Breakup Breakdown” web series, which hilariously re-enacts bad breakups.

Though we don’t completely buy this, one of his Season 19 contestants, Chantel Forrest, claims the former reality star “screwed up” other minorities’ chances for the lead role — up until Rachel Lindsay, that is.
