While plenty of people are out for blood over Juan Pablo Galavis’s Season 18 of The Bachelor, there’s no denying that it was among the most entertaining seasons of all time. Sure, Sean Lowe’s previous turn ended in a romantic and beautiful wedding to winner Catherine Giudici, and past seasons have had equally compelling leads, but there’s just something about JPG. Ah yes, we know what it is: the controversy.
While everyone was totally enamorados (in love) with Juan Pablo in the beginning, a few choice words El Bachelor used made him a less appealing lover to some. Still, there was a huge ratings turnout for his finale and “After the Final Rose,” which must’ve pleased producers.
In Juan Pab’s final People blog, he addresses the question of whether, given the opportunity, he would star on the show again. His response? A resounding no way, in more telling language. “I will always be thankful for the opportunity, but if you asked me to do it again, I would definitely say, ‘HELLLLL NOOOOO’ jejejejeje,” he writes after his Bachelor 2014 “aventura.”
Still, he’s quick to say that despite his anger at the edits he was given on the show, he did get what he came for: girlfriend Nikki Ferrell.
“At the end of the day,” Juan Pablo writes, “all I want to be is happy and I found what I signed up for: I found mi catira. She's the woman from ‘After the Final Rose’ that you saw as my girlfriend.”
The two took a trip to Miami after the March 10 finale, and then headed on a vacation for a friend’s wedding in the Dominican Republic. We wish them all the happiness they deserve.
