JUANuary has finally arrived! Filled with snow, ice and freezing temperatures, January is normally our least favorite month, but JUANuary? That’s a whole ‘nother thing!
It was back in steamy July when we first begged producers to consider rejected “Bachelorette” contestant Juan Pablo Galavis as the next Bachelor. Our hopes for the unlikely scenario were raised mightily a couple of weeks later, and our wildest dreams came true in August: Juan Pablo was named the new Bachelor!
Season 18 of “The Bachelor” kicks off this weekend with a two-night premiere event — as ABC puts it, it’s “Not Juan But Two Nights.” (The network is clearly having a lot of fun with their new leading man, as are we — and the show hasn’t even aired yet!) On Sunday, Jan. 5, it’s the “Countdown to Juan Pablo,” then he meets his 27 ladies on Monday, Jan. 6. The fun begins both nights at 8pm ET.
