Juan Pablo Galavis: Gays Shouldn't Be on 'The Bachelor'

Juan Pablo Galavis: Gays Shouldn't Be on 'The Bachelor'

UPDATE: Read the apology that Juan Pablo released.

Juan Pablo Galavis isn’t coy about sharing his opinion on having a gay or bisexual on The Bachelor.

“No, just ’cause I respect them but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids to watch that on TV. It’s hard, it’s hard, it’s a very thin line,” the 32-year-old Bachelor star shared to The TV Page.

“There’s this thing about gay people — it seems to me, I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not — I have a lot of friends like that, but they’re more pervert in a sense. Too me, the show would be too strong, too hard to watch on TV,” Juan added.

    Because homophobic+racist comments attract viewers like big brother US. Sad but true.

    He’s a complete and utter idiot! What he’s actually saying is that being gay is deviant. Deviance has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

    The Bachelor is a show for people who have IQs as big as a my shoe size. Who cares?

    Even if anything he said was true, which it’s obviously not, what little children are watching this show? Not to mention this is the epitome of the pot calling the kettle black. Can you imagine him in 20 years and 3 wives from now telling his kids “Gays are unnatural and perverted but I was so desperate for a woman I banged my first ex-wife on a reality tv show where women literally go into hysterics after being eliminated night one”

    Ugly beady-eyed pig. And it’s a good example to have 20 women throwing themselves at you like they’re cattle while you sample them all and pick which one you want? Idiot.

    Geez! This Juan Pablo Galavis dude sounds like a douchebag idiot!

    whodunit Says:

    Every one has a right to an opinion but his strikes me as exclusionary. And that’s not cool in 2014.

    And what kids are watching the bachelor anyway? I also don’t know why he had to preficit that he has gay friends before slamming them as perverts. Wacky.

    A disgusting man want to see if his daughter is a lesbian :/

    Gretchen Says:

    @Ellice: …straight people’s support is literally everywhere else… I can’t believe a functioning human being wrote that sentence What would straight people need support for? Being able to get married? Being able to see their spouse at the hospital? Being able to live in/visit other countries where their sexuality is illegal and they can be jailed or killed? Did you ever have to worry about telling your parents you were straight and risk being kicked out or ostracized for it? You’re absolutely allowed to have whatever opinion you have and I, and everyone else, are allowed to tell you you’re a moron for it

    bridget Says:

    wow, he is beyond stupid. he’s one arrogant piece of *** and if he thinks that straight bachelor is anything better than the worst show out there, he needs to get himself checked. what a homophobe.

    Wilma Says:

    and going on a tv show, having sex with different women, oral, etc is not perverted and not wrong because he is a straight man…right? DUMB A$$

    Amelia Says:

    I get where he’s coming from… If there was a gay men bachelor show or a lesbians one with the exact same scenarios(bikini by the pool, going on dates kissing all the contestants, sneaking in rooms) it will be unconfortable to watch.d thats why there isnt one. Can you picture that? NO….even the new normal was cancelled. Ppl are not ready for that yet!
    No one hates homosexuals, like he said some of his friends are gay.
    Take a chill pill, it’s Saturday ppl

    Sorry but he is totally out of order!!!!

    @Amelia: Gay people have rights. There is nothing sordid or disgusting about it. It is 2014 gay people respect each other more and to be honest the majority end up with partners and stay faithful for years. All this it is not suitable for children is total rubbish, a percentage of those will turn out to be gay in the future when puberty etc comes along. People who spout out about how gay people being disgusting and act like its a disease make me sick, some of the best people in entertainment are gay. Talented. Seriously get a grip :)
