The Bachelor finale definitely had everyone talking, mostly negatively, about Juan Pablo. The once sexy, single dad is now seen as a jerk to most Bachelor fans. But former Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, is on team Juan Pablo – find out why.
Ever since the Bachelor finale aired, fans and even Bachelor alum have been bashing Juan Pablo all over Facebook and Twitter. Sean Lowe has been very vocal about his disappointment with Juan Pablo. Sean tweeted, “this is painful to watch,” during the finale. And Sean wasn’t happy that JP seemed to be disrespecting Chris Harrison on the After The Final Rose special.
So besides Nikki Ferrell who is on Team Juan Pablo? Well season five Bachelorette, Jillian Harris is. Jillian got engaged to Ed Swiderski at the end her season, but the relationship didn’t last. After all of the backlash Juan Pablo received for not telling Nikki he loves her, Jillian took to her blog to defend him.
In Jillian’s blog she makes it clear that she doesn’t think JP was the greatest Bachelor. Duh! But Jillian explains that Juan just didn’t possess the right skills to be a good Bachelor. The former Bachelorette expresses her love for her Bachelor family and Chris Harrison, but says she felt disappointed by Chris for harping on the “love” word. Jillian thinks the love word is used a little too prematurely on this series. “I would be willing to bet that a big percentage of the L-BOMBS that get dropped on the show are premature. That doesn’t mean the relationship is fake, that doesn’t destine it for failure – strong emotions can be there – but love…well it takes time,” Jillian wrote. She also feels that Juan Pablo is just being realistic about his relationship with Nikki.
Since most Bachelor engagements end, is Juan Pablo just being smart about his decision not to propose? Or do you think he is just a jerk? Let us know what you think, leave us a comment below.
