This season's bachelor is Juan Pablo. Now there have been hot bachelors in the past, but Juan Pablo makes them all look like the nerdy kid who sat next to you on the bus in middle school. He from Venezuela, therefore, he has the kind of accent that would make the phone book sound sexy. He is an ex pro soccer player, a family man, a quirky guy, and he has a five year old daughter named Camilla who is his entire world. He is a bachelor producers wet dream.
We all know what happens next. The producers take the nice hot Venezuelan, who is trying his best to learn proper English, and they throw 25, or for this season 27, crazy american women at him with hopes that there is one normal one that will showcase a fairytale romance.
Among the women this year there are multiple blondes, a few brunettes, many with a bad blonde brunette mix, and one bottle job red head. They hold jobs as a local news reporter, a marketing manager, a teacher, a real estate agent, and my personal favorite - a free spirit. Yes, if you watch the show they will have free spirit in her lower third for her occupation. There is also a dog lover. Yes apparently this is a job now.
ABC has done their job of dragging out the premiere of this season by giving viewers teasers and photos of what to expect from this season. ABC has dubbed the month of January 'Juanuary' just for this show. Its a marketing technique that is both genius and nauseating at the same time. Bachelor producers have also come into a little extra money this year, and gave viewers an inside look of this upcoming season the night before the premiere of this season.
During the one hour special they showed just what its like to be picked to be on this show. From the outrageous audition tapes to the interview process, the producers made every viewer want to sit in on this process. Seriously, what I would give to sit in just for one day to see the stuff that goes on. A tip for next season bachelor producers, add an extra hour of the women who didn't get picked. I just want to watch those audition tapes on a loop.
Viewers were able to see the good and the bad of the interview process. A personal favorite was a girl who had absolutely no problem telling producers, "Well I was a virgin up until two weeks ago", and the girl who really wanted to show everyone how she can put a fist in her mouth. It's these people that producers think are good choices for precious Juan Pablo and his adorable daughter Camilla. I don't know about you guys, but I think that is wife and step-mom material if you ask me.
During the one hour special we also witnessed Juan Pablo being his adorable self by attempting to speak clear English. According to him his "word" are coming out as "words" now. I mean he can say any "word" and I would be completely sold so you keep brushing up on your English Juan. His English sounds a lot better then the girls who are trying to learn Spanish for him. Last time I checked the Spanish language does not have a valley girl accent.
This season I will be recapping every episode and giving my input on who is crying, who is being a "backstabbing bitch, who is trying to achieve their "fairytale romance" and the girls who "just want to go home". Ah, bachelor season. Just when you think you have seen it all, you really haven't!
