Now that we are pretty far into this season of “The Bachelor,” we are more or less now at a time in which the press likes to do what they do best: Speculate, and stir up all sorts of trouble.
The latest bit of that we get is courtesy of Us Weekly, who claims that a woman on the show is going to depart on Monday night’s new episode. It’s easy to presume that this could be Sharleen Joynt based on the narrative that has been shown all season (note: We don’t look at spoilers or anything of the like), and it has been pretty darn easy to tell that she is someone that Juan Pablo Galavis is really fond of this season. After all, this is a woman that he has kept around, even though he really doesn’t have that much in common with her at all. Heck, she’s not even sure what she wants in terms of kids just yet! She’s basically given him all sorts of reasons to send her home, and yet he still hasn’t done it for whatever reason.
Here is what a source had to say about what this supposed “exit” did to Juan Pablo:
“Juan Pablo was devastated. The woman was a frontrunner. If she hadn’t left, the outcome of the show would have been very different… He didn’t want her to go, and he was completely shocked that she left … She just wasn’t into him and didn’t want it to continue… She knew it was the right thing to do. She thought he was a wonderful man — just not for her.”
Could this be another Brooks Forester situation? That’s what we would be keen to compare it to, since we don’t imagine Juan Pablo packs it up here. He has plenty of time to still pick someone that he wants to be with out of everyone else, and even if he is devastated on the show if someone does leave, it would be easy to craft the narrative of “the right person has been in front of me the whole time.”
What do you think about all of this, and do you think that Juan Pablo would pick Sharleen at the end of the season if given a chance? Share below, and sign up for our CarterMatt Newsletter in the event that you do want to get even more TV updates from us via email.
