‘The Bachelor’: Secrets From Juan Pablo’s New Season!

Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.comThe Bachelor premiered its new season on ABC last night — and it’s easy to see why every lady is eager to get her hands on Juan Pablo Galavis.

A former Bachelorette contestant, 31 year-old Juan is a former pro soccer player from Barquisimeto, Venezuela. But underneath those well-sculpted muscles, he’s also a sensitive dad with a 4 year-old daughter he says is his “Valentine forever.” For more, check out his Twitter account, where he frequently posts his thoughts, punctuated with a lot of capital letters.

As for the Bachelorettes – the 27 women competing for Juan’s affections work in a variety of “occupations,” including “free spirit,” “dog lover”and “mineral coordinator.”

One also appeared to be very pregnant – or was it a fake belly?

Even more shocking is that one Bachelor contestant has already had an emotional meltdown. Looking at the engagement ring her ex gave her before dumping her, she broke down and cried.

Juan Pablo also got an impromptu massage from a quirky masseuse, and heard an original piece from a music composer. Was it romantic or awkward? Check out the video to see more about this season’s competitors!

Posting its best ratings in three years, The Bachelor is in its 18th season.  Could it be the best one yet?

Check out all the highlights from last night’s premiere – including what happened when one Bachelorette misheard her name being called at the rose ceremony! Can you say “aw-kward”!
