FAN FAVORITE JUAN PABLO GALAVIS SEARCHES

FOR LOVE AGAIN ON ABC’S HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES,

The Bachelor,” WHEN IT RETURNS TO ABC IN JANUARY 2014

 

A New Journey is Set for the Former Professional Soccer Player

Juan Pablo Galavis, the sexy single father from Miami, Florida, is ready to find love. He’ll have his own opportunity to find his wife and stepmother to his daughter when he stars in the 18th edition of “The Bachelor” which returns in January of 2014 on the ABC Television Network. The identity of the new “Bachelor” was revealed tonight on the “The Bachelorette – After the Final Rose.”

With his Spanish accent, good looks, salsa moves and undying devotion for his daughter, Juan Pablo, 32, was a fan favorite. Sadly, Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock couldn’t see a future with Juan Pablo and sent him home from Barcelona. Although he was blindsided by not getting a rose, the experience of being on “The Bachelorette” opened his eyes to the possibility of finding a real, everlasting love. He witnessed firsthand how it worked with Desiree, and has decided that he can’t give up on love and on giving his daughter, Camila, what she wants more than anything else in the world – a brother and a sister to complete their family. Juan Pablo is ready and hopeful that he’ll find love and the missing puzzle piece to fulfill his family here on “The Bachelor.”

Hosted by Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor” is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.

“The Bachelor” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with stereo sound.

    I think he will be a so so Bachelor because he stated he was looking for a Mom for his daughter. I don’t think this is the place unless the women on the show are like Desiree; “sweet” and are there for the rest reason.

    Well, he is adorable, but I do think that it is time to start choosing someone who has not been in the show previously as it was at the beginning.

  • Paige

    I like Juan, but I was hoping that the new bachelor would be Zak! He is so super sweet and romantic, and showed his love and passion for life. He would definitely make a great Bachelor! I would have enjoyed seeing Zak much more!!!!!!!!!

  • Adrienne

    I think Juan Pablo will be perfect. He is adorable, charming and down to earth. I will definitely be watching and hoping he finds his love!

  • Mary Jane

    I’m with Paige, I agree with everything she said about Zac. I’ll be watching Juan Pablo but would have prefered Zac as the Bachelor!!!!!

    I think that Drew from Desiree’s Bachelorette Season would have been a Handsome, Wonderful Bachelor for season 18!!! He is soooooo Gorgeous and sweet and has a sexy body!
