On “The Bachelor,” the tradition is as such when you are the star of the show you wait to have some of the women you are dating meet everyone in your family until you are at the end of the show, and for good reason. You don’t want your loved ones to get too involved in the process early, especially if one of these said loved ones also happens to be your daughter.
However, that is happening when it comes to Juan Pablo Galavis’ season, and we are sure that a good many of out there are going to start talking now about some more controversy, Juan Pablo breaking the rules, or about him being completely hypocritical when it comes to “fairness.” After all, this is what he was so upset about when it comes to Clare Crawley, and now he is going to allow Nikki Ferrell to actually meet his daughter Camila along with his parents. A little sketchy, no?
Let’s just go ahead and share verbatim what ABC’s press release says on the subject:
“On his second individual date, Juan Pablo takes Nikki to a local florist to pick out some flowers – but they are not for her. Nikki will be the lucky woman to give the bouquet to Camila at her dance recital. The stunned bachelorette arrives at the dance studio and meets the Bachelor’s parents and Camila’s mom. The pressure really mounts as Juan Pablo introduces Camila to his ‘special friend’ Nikki. But will Nikki’s nerves sabotage the crucial meeting, and what does Camila think of Nikki?”
The reason that we mentioned Sharleen in the title was to A) not making it extremely obvious that Nikki was getting the time with his daughter and B) she is the other person getting the date in this episode. We’ll have a little more news about that soon.
In the end, we gotta believe that this is pretty clear evidence that Juan Pablo believes Nikki to be somebody that he is going to have at the end of the competition, since he wouldn’t let just anyone (or so we hope) meet his daughter.
What do you think about Juan Pablo allowing someone to meet his daughter at the final six? Does this show even more hypocrisy, or do you more blame the producers for this?
