Not only did Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis rub some of the women on the show the wrong way, apparently Chris Harrison had some doubts about him in the beginning too!
After an awkward After the Final Rose special when Juan Pablo basically silenced the host, Chris is finally speaking out.
"I want to start off by saying I'm not mad about how the season ended nor am I angry with Juan Pablo. For some reason I feel that there is some notion that I dislike him, and that's just not the truth. One of the many things I love about this show is every season is different because every Bachelor or Bachelorette is different. They bring in their own culture, background, issues, and baggage.
I truly believe Juan Pablo came into this season with those true intentions. I also know that when we chose him we truly believed he had the qualities that would make him a great Bachelor. But from the beginning something just didn't seem right and something didn't fit. We can debate over what that is, but the truth is that is irrelevant."
It's irrelevant? We beg to differ!!
So, what was it about him from the beginning? Was it his insensitive comments towards the gay community?
We need more details, Chris!! How dare you leave us hanging like this!
