‘Bachelor’s’ Clare Crawley — Thank You For Telling Off Juan Pablo

Clare, loads of us women were cheering when you pushed Bachelor Juan Pablo away after he told you that you were not the woman for him. His behavior toward you was sexist and insulting, and he needed to know it!

Clare Crawley — Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis had the most unbelievable nerve to lead you on up until the very last moment, hinting that he loved you and would choose you as his bride in the season finale of The Bachelor.

‘Bachelor’: Juan Pablo & Clare Helicopter Date — Clare Tells Off Juan Pablo

Clare, it was so rude of Juan Pablo to tell you on a sexy helicopter ride that he “loved fu**ing” you. It stunned you, especially when he paired it with the statement that he felt like he didn’t really know you. We had a giant “huh” moment, just like you, at that point.

If Juan Pablo was concerned about knowing you better, then why was he whispering dirty words in your ear during the filming of a show that’s supposed to be about love, and not just sex?

Clare, no wonder you freaked and considered ending your relationship with Juan Pablo before you even got to the finale. But I guess Juan Pablo, mindful of his Bachelor ratings duties, tricked you into repressing your natural instincts to back off, and instead you moved ahead with the final rose humiliation.

Juan Pablo led you on by telling you what you wanted to hear — that he liked you for all of you, and that he wanted to have a baby with you. You even succumbed to telling him, “I don’t want a rose, I want forever.”

Clare, you were being honest and loving and committal, but Juan Pablo was just using you. That’s why it was so fabulous when he went in to comfort you after blowing you off in the finale, and you pushed out of his arms and told him exactly what was on your mind.

“I thought I believed in you. I lost respect for you. I thought I knew what kind of man you were,” you told him. “I would never want my children to have a father like you.”

Juan Pablo needed to hear all of this. His behavior was completely disrespectful. But that wasn’t the first time that he hypocritically did you wrong.

Clare Crawley — You Are So Lucky To Be Done With Bachelor Juan Pablo

Who can forget when Juan Pablo joined you for an impromptu skinny dip — which he fully enjoyed — but then lectured you the following morning about how you shouldn’t be doing something so intimate with him when he has a daughter who’s just 4. He even had the nerve to tell you that you wouldn’t be setting a good example for his daughter, Camila.

Umm, hello? Juan Pablo was there in the water with his clothes off too! But nevertheless, you, Clare, were the one who was left embarrassed, humiliated and hurt. We were so happy here at when you refused to see Juan Pablo on the After the Final Rose show. “That day in St. Lucia was closure for me,” you explained to host Chris Harrison. “Juan Pablo was not the man I hoped he was. I said it all that day.”

You did, Clare. But Juan Pablo was so clueless that instead of feeling your pain when he rejected you and seeing the error of his ways, instead he chose to diss you on the finale. “Whoo! I’m glad I didn’t pick her,” was his ridiculous dig at you as you walked away in tears in front of the cameras.

His reaction just showed again what a jerk he is.  Clare, you are so lucky to be done with Bachelor Juan Pablo, and to be moving on with your life. You’re super courageous and so honest, and women everywhere are high fiving you — and you need to know that.

So HollywoodLifers, are you happy that Clare told off Juan Pablo? Let me know.
