There are three things women can’t say no to: accents, abs and athleticism. Well, ladies, ABC has granted all three of our wishes by making Juan Pablo the next ‘Bachelor!’
Juan Pablo Will Be The Best ‘Bachelor’ Ever
For starters, Juan Pablo isn’t like former Bachelor contestants — he wasn’t the runner up, or even the third-place finisher. He wasn’t an attention hog or overly dramatic. He came in seventh in Desiree Hartsock‘s season, and was considered a “fan favorite” by many, including Chris Harrison.
It only took that short time for all of us to fall in love with him.
As the first Latino Bachelor, he seems like one of the most genuine men to ever grace the show. Born in Ithaca, N.Y., he moved to Venezuela at the age of two, which is where he grew up. So we know that he knows a thing or two about different cultures!
Being A Father Is A Total Plus
At 32, he’s a single father to 4-year-old daughter Camila, who is absolutely adorable. Being a father is a definite plus! It proves that he’s mature enough to have a daughter who adores him, and that he’s a family man — something every woman wants.
For women, commitment is super sexy and hard to find. So seeing a man who’s totally committed to the relationship he has with his daughter is definitely a breath of fresh air.
This season’s women may actually have to ask for permission to get serious with Juan — from his daughter!
“Juan Pablo would never pursue a serious relationship — much less ask for someone’s hand in marriage — without his daughter being completely OK with it,” a source close to him told E! “For the most part, [Camila's] mother will be taking care of her while Juan Pablo is shooting. But she will definitely appear on the show. He’s going to make sure to see her as often as he can and include her in the process.”
Athleticism Equals Dedication & Determination
In addition to being a father, he’s also a former professional athlete; he used to play professional soccer for Caracas FC, Deportivo Italia and Monagas Sport Club!
That David Beckham-esque stature and athleticism is definitely something that women love. I don’t think it’s just me who finds that attractive; you’ve seen him without a shirt on, right?
After he had his daughter, he could no longer play professional soccer, so he took on a new job in Miami promoting musicians at clubs. The most important thing was being with his daughter. (Hold please while I swoon!)
He’s Not Just Attractive — He’s Also Sensitive
Physical attraction aside, Juan Pablo is also super sensitive. When he was asked his idea of a perfect date, he told ABC it would be “having a special lunch with the love of my life on a tepui in Canaima [National Park in Venezuela]. Flying on a helicopter around the jungle and stopping to eat on top of a tepui.”
When he went home seventh on The Bachelorette, he even teared up!
I can tell just by his excitement on Aug. 5’s “After The Final Rose” special, when he was introduced, that he would be one of the best — if not the very best — ever.
HollywoodLifers, do you agree? Don’t you think Juan Pablo is the hottest man to ever be The Bachelor? Dropa comment and let me know!
