After watching an entire season of Juan Pablo as ABC’s Bachelor, a common reaction to Juan Pablo emerges from the Women. Not only did multiple women address his inappropriate behavior towards them, they also felt disrespected and embarrassed. There are several reasons why Juan Pablo failed to meet up to the standards of a decent Bachelor.
“He’s not the person he seems.” Multiple women on the show mention that Juan Pablo is not the guy he seems to be. He portrays himself as a caring father who is looking for love. However convincing his words might be, his actions portray the opposite of what he claims. Juan Pablo’s actions portray him as a man who is hungry for a shallow relationship. He states that he cares about these women, but doesn’t even know basic facts about them. Contestant Andi points out that Juan Pablo didn’t even know her religion despite her knowing his. This complaint emerges throughout the season from multiple women. It’s hard to believe that he is anything, but a shallow, self-absorbed man.
Constantly Silencing The Women’s Voices. Whenever there is a complaint or concern from the women, Juan Pablo quickly tries to comfort and distract the women. Many times in intimate circumstances, women confronted him about his feelings. He quickly distracts them and brushes the hair out of their face. The second he sees conflict, he tries to distract and not discuss it at all. He denies the problems at hand and if the women continue to voice their concerns, he hushes them. He is constantly telling the women, “Ees Okay.” Juan Pablo even stated, that once a girl started arguing with him, “He was done with her.” This shows his behavior is full of silencing the women’s voices.
Even His Parents Warn The Girls. When the two last contestants meet Juan Pablo’s family, many of them warn the girls about his behavior. His mom and dad sit down with Nikki and Clare in order to discuss the relationship with their son. Both girls discussed how they adored their son. Both girls open up emotionally to the family. In turn, the family warns them about Juan Pablo’s behavior. His mom even stated that Juan Pablo has made her cry. This type of behavior from his family shows that he is not the most moral upstanding man.
Juan Pablo portrays to be a good man who loves his daughter, but then acts like he only cares about himself. Throughout the season he shows that he doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Juan Pablo picks Nikki and claims that he cares about her “A Lot”. When pressed about whether Juan Pablo loves Nikki, he claims that he wants to keep his life private. Chris Harrison starts to hound Juan Pablo and asks why he won’t say he loves Nikki. Then, Juan Pablo acts very confrontational and defensive about being with Nikki. Nikki smiles next to him in her silent submissive way.
Nikki and Juan Pablo’s relationship is just a shallow and fake image. He won’t proclaim his love for Nikki because he doesn’t…wait for it…Love Her! What a concept. Juan Pablo can’t love anyone because he is too obsessed with himself.
