Juan Pablo: Why TV Execs Didn’t Want Him Competing On ‘DWTS’

If you couldn’t stand watching Juan on ABC’s ‘The Bachelor,’ an insider tells EXCLUSIVELY that neither could ABC executives. The former soccer pro wasn’t picked this season on purpose, because he wasn’t as well liked as they had hoped.

Track record shows that once you’re done competing on ABC’s The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, the main guy or girl normally goes on to star on Dancing With The Stars. Well not this season and can tell you the laundry list of reasons why Juan Pablo wasn’t on their roster this season.

Juan Pablo — Why He’s Not Competing On ‘DWTS’

The list goes on, and on, and on … but has learned that the main reason Juan isn’t on DWTS this season, is because he’s a “complete jerk.”

For various reasons including the fact that he bashed those that are gay which we all know are a big part of Dancings audience, ABC didn’t want Juan to join Dancing With The Stars this year because they are over him. He is a complete jerk that America has been able to see materialize and he didn’t do himself any favors to influential people within ABC. They want to separate themselves from Juan as much as possible, so not adding him to DWTS or anything else that other Bachelor or Bachelorette contestants usually get is priority number one.

Juan Doesn’t Propose On ‘The Bachelor’

Juan doesn’t get down on one knee, in fact, he doesn’t even propose. He reveals he has the ring in his pocket but that he’s not sure if he wants to put it on Nikki Ferrell’s finger. He says he likes her enough to get to know her more but that he’s not sure it’s a love connection. Audiences at home were freaking out because normally the Bachelor proposes!

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Juan not being picked to be on DWTS?
