Although past seasons of “The Bachelor” had shown incredibly unrealistic love stories and tons of devastated and heartbroken women from the first episodes to the very last, this season definitely topped the most outrageous finale of all time! Is Juan Pablo a good guy or just a deadbeat dad? Is he truly who he portrays himself to be? These were the types of controversial headlines buzzing around all throughout this season.
The Fantasy Suite fiasco with cold hearted Andi storming off the show and Clare’s bitchy attitude really shined through as pure desperation. How eager was Clare for the Fantasy Suite and to be with Juan throughout the show? Any man would be turned off by her pathetic behavior and constant insecurities.
Chris Harrison, the long standing host, was shocked that there was no proposal and was even more excited to hear an ‘I Love You’ from Juan than was the winner, Nikki Ferrell. Get it together Chris! I did not like his unprofessionalism as a host during the finale. First of all, in real life people date for several months, get into relationships, get engaged, and so on. The last time I checked, there was nothing wrong with a person taking their time to fall in love and was actually encouraged to do so in order to truly get to know someone – so what’s the difference here?
It was so ridiculous when Clare was so ‘in love’ with Juan at the finale, but as soon as she did not get her way, she threw a tantrum like a little girl and complained about how he was such a horrible guy. Ugh, honey, two seconds ago you were going to accept his proposal? How about you put your big girl panties on and keep it classy! Nikki, on the other hand, stated that she may get engaged at the finale, but either way she truly cared for Juan regardless of the outcome and she stood by her word -even during Chris’ awkward questioning on the after show.
Overall, I didn’t see ANYTHING wrong with the fact that Juan Pablo didn’t propose to Nikki or tell her he loved her. I think he did a brave thing and didn’t do what was expected of him. Although they make a very physically attractive duo, he is really blunt and she is really quiet -so definitely not a match in my book.
