Monday night marks the premiere for “The Bachelor,” and you know what that means: Getting an opportunity to see Juan Pablo Galavis chat about his journey to pretty much any and all major media outlets that will have him.
Given that this is the day of the official first episode, it only made sense that the first stop would be on “Good Morning America” to share a few details about the season along with Chris Harrison. While he of course would not say whether or not he fell in love and proposed to anyone at the end, he conceded that he knew that he would have a hard time letting people down going into the experience:
“I knew it was gonna be hard. It’s not easy to make a decision … I hate hurting people. I was like, ‘Do you really want to do this? Do you really want to get into trouble with this?’ I knew I was going to have to hurt people, sending people home, so it was very hard.”
While this may be hard, we don’t feel like it is going to be an impossible task for this guy at all. While his Latin background is enough to make him somewhat original, there are also parts of him that remind us of past Bachelors. While he has some of the humor of Sean Lowe, he also has the pre-show trajectory of almost a Jake Pavelka in that he didn’t make it very far on his first season, and thanks to that you don’t really know a ton about how he is going to be able to handle all of the individual situations that unfold for him.
Personally, we feel like this will be a fun season, but also not one that is going to reshape the way that we think about the show. There has not been talk of any massive scandals, at least in comparison to what we had in past years.
