Get ready to drool ladies! Not only did we watch as Desiree Hartsock found love on The Bachelorette last night, but the The Bachelor also revealed its next star. And luckily for us, we’ll get to watch super hot single dad, Juan Pablo Galavis search for love in January!
The Bachelor normally doesn’t announce their new lead this early, so fans were a bit shocked when the show decided to make the announcement last night. And despite reports that he would not be the next star, the show announced that Juan Pablo Galavis will indeed be their next star!
Ironically, the announcement came as Juan Pablo was celebrating his birthday – what a great present! The fan favorite who wooed many viewers during his time with Des on The Bachelorette will be the show’s first minority lead, and the show’s second single dad. Growing up in Venezuela, Galavis is also a former soccer player, who played in college and then went on to play for professional teams in Spain and Miami.
Juan Pablo has a 4-year-old daughter, and he is ready to find love. “Being on ‘The Bachelorette’ opened up my eyes, and I’m definitely ready to fall in love. I really want to have that wife and a couple other kids,” the hot single dad dished last night. Desiree Hartsock referred to Juan as “a dream of a man,” and gushed about his hot Spanish accent – yeah, we completely agree!
For The Bachelor, it was a no-brainer to cast Galavis, as Chris Harrison told the crowd last night: “In the history of this show, no guy has made a greater impact with less screen time.”
What do you think about Juan Pablo Galavis being cast as the next Bachelor star? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Comment below to share your thoughts with us!
