Juan Pablo: A Gay 'Bachelor' Wouldn't Be A Good Example For Kids, 'They're More Pervert"

Oh really, Juan Pablo? 

The Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis, who's currently on our television screens each week looking for a suitable stepmother to his daughter by banging 50 desperate women in the same house, announced yesterday that he didn't think we would or should ever see a gay "Bachelor" because it wouldn't set the right example.

We'll let Juan Pablo fill you in on the rest. 

TV Line writes:

At the network’s Television Critics Association winter press tour party on Friday, current Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis said he would be opposed to having an openly gay or bisexual bachelor take part in an upcoming cycle — and it went downhill from there.

“I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV,” he told The TV Page. “Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there [are] fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having… two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.  But I respect them because they want to have kids. They want to be parents. So it is a scale… Where do you put it on the scale? Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody’s desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV.”

The former Venezuelan soccer star and single dad went on to describe gay people as being “more pervert in a sense.”

Here's audio of the exchange:

Keep talking, Juan Pablo. 

Or don't. 

What do you think of Juan Pablo taking on the role of moral authority and designator of what's appropriate and what's perverted?


Another reason a good looking guy is only to be seen and not heard from

Please excuse my English, Spanish is my mother tongue and I inadvertently said "Juan Pablo imbécil" instead of "lovely beard, dude" - OMG I am so, so sorry, I didn't mean to insult you, I have many imbecile, I mean, friends with beards, I love them, they are great, I have nothing against imbeciles, I also have double personality disorder intertwined with greed and I'm a popularity whore, I apologize

This coming from a man who looks for his true love from a brothel of women on live television.  This from someone who flaunts his personal life for the world to see.  Again someone in the public eye who as Twain said when asked how he came to have such brilliant writing said that he only wrote about the things he knew and experienced.  This idiot needs to only speak about what he knows and not what he things because no one is paying money with no return.  Just another Ken doll to flaunt to the Barbies (twisted as they have to be to be remembered.)

The spanish word for pervert is pervertido... so his English is my second language excuse is bs.  Are you kidding me? English as my second language is the reason I made a blatant homophobic statement? In this guy's apology he still states that we have a racy lifestyle that is incompatible with raising a family or being a good example. Do people not realize that sex between males is just as racy and 'inappropriate' as sex between a female and male when put into the context of raising a family??? Gay people are no more of a bad example for kids than straight people are. We raise our children just as appropriately and many times more appropriately than some straight people. The problem is that homophobic people cannot separate us from sex. Rick Santorum did the same thing to me. I asked if he would kick me out of the military and take away my retirement if someone saw a vacation picture of Josh and I. He responded you can't have sex in the military. Once again reduced to the lowest common denominator. Sex is a very small part of our being, it is what defines us as people just as much as sex defining straight people. Could you imagine if everyone judged you constantly right up to whether or not you should be able to marry or have children based on their judgment of what you do in the bedroom. I am so tired of this small minded intolerance. Stop taking everything to sex. We are human beings, I do have sex with my husband. I also cook with him, go to movies with him, take our dogs on a walk, and just sit for endless hours talking. Stop defining my life by what you picture me as doing in my bedroom why is that so hard for people to understand?!?!

Coming from someone who the State of Florida had to garnish his wages to pay the child support he owes the mother of his child, I wouldn't really hold his "example for children" to mean a whole heck of a lot. Seems he is a bad example on multiple fronts. Pot meet kettle. Just Sayin'

u should give ur opinion to urself.; i bet he sell his soul to devil.. nonsense .; he so stupid

The only thing he's sorry about is that it may reduce the ratings and ultimately hit him in the pocket. I can't imagine anybody wanting to be with a jerk like that.

It's okay for him to sleep with all these trashy women fighting over him. They have no morals. He has a lot of nerve bashing gays. They are all complete strangers but most of them are willing to jump into bed with him. He is no better for sleeping with all of them. Shame on him and his bunch of concubines.

Gays are "more 'pervert' in a sense"?!

First of all, get him to grammar school.
Second, isn't that the pot calling the kettle "black". For he's a male (not man) dating about 25 women AT ONCE. Also, if he is like past bachelors, he probably has had sex with more than one of those 25. And seeing a gay/bisexual bachelor is what's supposed to be bad for kids?! As much as I hate to say it, that's the stereotypical Latino overcompensating machismo talking. Believing it's ok to sleep with as many females as possible, but being gay is a damn shame. That's why so many Latinos are homophobic and on the down low today. In fact, with such an answer, he might be one of them. For DOTH PROTEST TOO MUCH.

With such stupidity, someone please teach him the word "hypocrisy" in those much needed grammar lessons.

That's exactly my thought, "methinks thou doth protest too much."  I think the guy is secretly gay.  I mean c'mon, how could a hunk like this have trouble dating or finding a suitable wife?  I also saw the beginning of the show and I definitely saw some guy affectionately touching his leg and he sure didn't swat it away.  Hmmm?

Maybe he should try to get with one of the dumb Miss America's. Their speaking talents are about the same level of ridiculousness and they can sound like complete morons to each other. Looks like ignorance is bliss. Especially when u are in the closet. A big walk in closet with 50 whores outside the door with the sole purpose of being a bigger slut than the next one. What a tool.

Can you say Stooopid?  yes I know I misspelled it.

Straight bachelors are even more perverted! Juan Pablo: brought up in a country where machos and womanizers rule. And that's how I left Venezuela!

Stupid man in a stupid show. What do you expect?

So hes calling gay people perverts. And yet he kisses a different girl on every episode of the bachelor wow what a douche bag if you ask me shows like the bachelor are a bad exmple weather its with heterosexuals or homosexuals.

If he thinks children should be watching the Bachelor, I hope he's sterile.

Let's really not confuse this story with the pretense of a person being gay or straight. It really unfortunately has to do with HATE.

HATE [heyt]
verb (used with object), hat·ed, hat·ing. dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest: to hate the enemy; to hate bigotry. be unwilling; dislike: I hate to do it.

verb (used without object), hat·ed, hat·ing. feel intense dislike, or extreme aversion or hostility.

4.intense dislike; extreme aversion or hostility.
5.the object of extreme aversion or hostility.

Hate can be disguised and sugar coated to look like a lot of things. The best thing you can do about this issue is to change the channel, write to the sponsors of the program to protest, and exercise your consumer rights and power. This is the only way to change big business.

What an idiot. That's all!

I'd like to know why someone who goes on TV to find a wife/mother for his child, has become such an authority on dating.?   Gay or str8.

so stupid

I can't help it........this pervert is an ignorant, bigoted asshole.

I'm in the UK. Who the fuck is this clown anyway???

Juan Pablo's ignorance won't stop me from being myself; nor will anyone else's.

I would never watch the Bachelor anyway. Laaa-aaame. 

Moron! Need I say more?????

Well Juan.....looks like you just sunk your ratings for this season.....because you may not know this but a lot of gays USE to watch the bachelor.  And I were the network exs.....I would bounce your broken english speaking ass off my set.  And thats on the real tip.   I was with my ex for 14 yrs....and with my current now for going on 4.  We dont need to go on a damn show and beg to get laid or try to convince someone to marry them.  Get a life and get off TV.

I'm not ashamed to admit I am a prude and proud of it, so I do not think shows like "The Bachelor" sets a goo example, period. However, Juan Pablo, single Dad that he is, gives me some serious gay vibes. So is he showing his true colors with his statements, or should we say "I think he doth protest too much."

What's up with his can you take him seriously looking like that....??

I don't believe any of this crap, honestly. He says this for the media and public. He is not very bright, but definitely attractive. I will bet he has had sex with men before, as well as woman. Most guys like him don't mind if another hot guy, or hot girl , are working on his "junk"! That's my opinion!

What bothers this cave man is that children will grow up to be gender and color tolerant. He cannot see beyond his own lifelong prejudices and is projecting them onto children, who by nature, are non-judgmental. Another dumb-ass with his 15 minutes of fame. Your looks are not enough Mister!

I asked myself the same question too he related to Putin? They should transmit the Bachelor in Sochi for more ratings too! And who is Juan Pablo to talk about morals...I bet he goes more to the gym than to church! He should look for a better way to exercise his brains and tolerance than to point fingers at. You better think before you speak. Being gay doesnt make anybody a pervert. I live in South America...and gay society here is way too different to the one seen around the US. So please DO NOT compare gay society around the world to the one you barely seem to know.

Actually, he is originally from South America (Venezuela). He might have been born in the U.S but he is culturally Latin. Just Saying.

I'm not saying that South America is against gay people (Argentina and Brazil are quite gay-friendly) but he, as a former soccer player/ footballer, is definitely affected by and ingrained with the existent and ongoing homophobia within soccer, or association football community even now..

In fact, the one who chooses to come out in soccer will think twice about his decision and courage to face the following consequences:

1) being ostracized and tormented by their macho wannabe peers as they will isolate and refuse to shower in the same sauna with him.

2) the probability of being kicked out of the team and fired by by his couch.

3) homophobia spewed at him by his once upon a time "fans"

Every culture is different but gay people are still human beings who deserve respect for their contribution toward society. Juan Pablo needs to grow up or else I'm going feel sorry for his daughter.

Double morality. It has become fashionable. "I respect you, but don't pretend to do this" 

There's obviously an irony here when he calls the homosexual idea 'perverted'. He's dating and having relations with many women at once in a televized series.

I think Juan Pablo is a) unable to fully articulate his thoughts because English isn't his first language (nobody should be bullying him over this in my opinion) and b) slightly homophobic or apprehensive because he is unexposed to the lifestyle coming from South America.
I think he should reexamine his views and try to open his mind, but not be demonized either by the lgbt community. His views seem flexible with time and experience and maybe he just needs to meet some nice gay people to demystify the myths making him apprehensive about the idea of a gay bachelor.

I'll care about his opinions when he learns to speak English in a manner that does not remind me of Rosey from "The Jetsons."

It goes to show someone from a different country trying to speak their mind but ending up looking like an ass...u had to come to America to find a mate how pathetic is that...and i think the ratings wouldn't suffer if they did have a gay bachelor...don't discriminate on those trying to find love too!!

God, I can't wait to hear how ABC tries to spin this crap. I'm am going to take a wild guess and say they will take then "Lost in translation" excuse because Juan's first language is Spanish and not English.

I think someone who would date a woman 7 months pregnate is a PERVERT,  not someone who is making a decent life of love and happiness. Maybe he need to take his tounge of the mouth of some random womans mouth and think before his dick does his talking for him.

Mesdames et Messieurs --

Please keep in mind it is just a television show, and televisions can be unplugged.

What's bad Television is having a guy pawn through 20 females for a wife that he may eventually dump....

Well the simple fact that a guy is "dating" multiple women at the same time on TV and those women are capable to do whatever they can to keep the guy "happy" so he can select one of them to possible be his wife doesn't sounds like a good example for kids at all, I'm wondering if he allows his own daughter to watch the show. 

Daniel seebaran....i am loving your comments above !! and I hope Juan puto...ooops, i mean Juan pablo sees them...

Way to go Juan Pablo...from hunky soccer stud to total moron in 24 hours....I used to think you were cool until i read this article a out you.   You are a jerk....what kind of example are you setting for young camilla by pimping yourself out to 27 woman, hmmm perhapss you are to "pervert" to use your words. ..ever think maybe .its not the loving gay couples with children that have the problem....perhaps its the divorced father pimping him self out on live tv...kissing one woman in one scene and frolicking in a hot tub with another the next night and so on and so on...........maybe camilla is the one who needs to move into a gay she can get a "normal" upbringing....of 2 loving parents who dont sleep around.

No se puede fijar estúpido

Is he related to Putin? 

The word is 'perverted', by the way, Juan - not 'pervert'.  Pervert is a noun, not an adjective.  Please stay away from children, because I would prefer to see a world in which, if those children intend to speak English, they do so CORRECTLY.

What an embarrassment. I live in Trinidad and many of the Venezuelans that come across here to live, work and study happen to be gay or bi-sexual. In fact, many of them  make a living by sleeping with wealthy men. 

What is disturbing to me and even more troubling that seeing openly gay men on television is having to be subjected to watching and listening to someone whose only obvious skill (ironically), is playing with balls. He only adds to the stereotype of blondes being empty headed. Juan Pablo- you should definitely be seen and not heard.

dumb spike

Just as shallow as his artificial looks and representations...  stupidity suits him well.
