Juan Pablo for the New Bachelor!

Juan Pablo imagined as the Bachelor (bad Photoshop is a Swoonworthy specialty)

Is Juan Pablo Galavis our next Bachelor? Many “Bachelorette” fans certainly think so, as the previously little-seen Latin lover got shocking star treatment on last night’s “Men Tell All” episode. The Venezuelan former pro soccer player was rejected by Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock weeks ago, after enjoying such little screen time that we used to spend all of our time screaming at the TV to show the man more, forcryingoutloud!

Despite the few televised moments afforded him, Juan Pablo became a fan favorite through sheer force of his good looks and charming personality. So much so that, in introducing him last night, host Chris Harrison was forced to acknowledge ABC’s failings:

“In the history of this show, no guy has made a greater impact with less screen time than our soccer-playing single dad. He’s the fan favorite we barely got to know.”

And with that, the show began shamelessly pimping out the resource it had squandered lo these many weeks. In a change as bewildering as it was delightful, JP (my pet name for him) got more screen time on the “Men Tell All” than he did all season put together. He was seated prominently front and center, and Harrison seemingly couldn’t ask him enough questions. Juan Pablo always dropped panties with those Latin looks of his, and last night he melted hearts talking sweetly about his adorable 4-year-old daughter, Camila. It was a tour de force! It was no surprise to us that his name started trending worldwide on Twitter, although the timing did cause confusion for the uninitiated:

We begged for Juan Pablo to be the next Bachelor weeks ago, but never dared to believe it might actually happen. As fans know — and as we kept hearing from James this season — Bachelor and Bachelorette candidates are normally chosen from the final four. ABC testing audience reaction for the sixth-place Juan Pablo to be the next Bachelor, as the network clearly is doing, is simply beyond our wildest dreams. It’s Christmas in July, folks! Juan Pablo for ALL the roses!

Get to know Juan Pablo with these cute pics of him hanging with Camila, sexy screen shots from his blink-and-you-missed-it “Bachelorette” appearances and a bunch of photos of him just being hot in general:

Juan Pablo Galavis: El Próximo Bachelor?

But for why did Venezuelan former pro soccer player Juan Pablo Galavis get such little screen time on this season of “The Bachelorette”? Do only dudes edit this show? Was it his English (which was fine)? Was it his accent (which was adorable and fine)? Was it the fact that his hotness was hotter than a thousand suns and he makes every man who stands near him look as lame as they probably are? Probably.

Whatever the reason, ABC clearly squandered this precious resource, and (SPOILER ALERT!) Desiree Hartsock unceremoniously gave him the boot last night. She probably forgot he was there.

If he had made the final four he might have had a chance to be named the next Bachelor, as we heard repeatedly last night. But ABC can right this wrong — and gain a record number of female applicants for the show’s next season: Juan Pablo for the Bachelor!!!

Bachelorette Desiree’s 10 Most Desirable Bachelors

bachelorette cast

“The Bachelorette” Season 9 is upon us! Pretty and likable Desiree Hartsock, fresh from Sean Lowe heartbreak, will chose her husband (theoretically) from 25 eligible (also theoretical) men. We can’t wait for Monday’s season premiere and look forward to getting to know more about these guys as does Des, while also enjoying them in various forms of undress.

And, just like the Bachelors and Bachelorettes do before every Rose Ceremony, We’ve taken some serious alone time to ponder the contestant’s pictures (here and here), and have carefully chosen our Top 10. Yes, these are admittedly shallow picks, based on looks and not much else. So, no, we didn’t pick these guys for the RIGHT REASONS and we definitely made no deep connections… just like 99% of the contestants on these shows!

Listen, we don’t know if Des will like these guys and we don’t even know if we’ll like them as the season progresses; this is just a list of the ones that we’ve enjoyed looking at initially — in still pictures, anyway. We’re sure some of these guys will do/have done something stupid or even awful to make us bang our heads on our desks for including them here, but in the meantime — gentlemen, will you accept this rose?

In no particular order, Desiree’s Top 10 Most Desirable Bachelors:

Sean Lowe’s Thighs Say Hi

Sean Lowe's legs

Pity poor Sean Lowe as he prepares for the inevitable bashing on Monday’s “Women Tell All” episode of “The Bachelor“… chances are good that AshLee will have found some words to say to him by now. Good luck with that, man!

Here’s hoping Sean can console himself with the fact that he’s done an amazing job developing his thighs — something so many other guys with well-developed chests have overlooked… Sean Lowe: Thursday Thighmaster!

Sean Lowe Shirtless Gifs

Part one of this week’s two-part “Bachelor” extravaganza didn’t go so well for Bachelor Sean Lowe last night — and it didn’t go too well for us man-candy fans, either: Sean didn’t take off a stitch of clothing. Tonight’s “The Bachelor Tells All” episode doesn’t look too skin-filled either, so we thought we’d keep your spirits up with the ab-solutely hunky animated gifs of Sean Lowe shirtless!

Bachelor Sean Lowe’s Harlequin Shoot

Somehow we are two episodes in to this season’s “The Bachelor,” and ABC hasn’t turned Sean Lowe into a man whore yet! Remember this day. But things did get pretty touchy-feely — with mostly him being touched and felt — during the group Harlequin photo shoot date. The big winner is above; click to enlarge our personal fave (below). Two more Harlequin pics can be viewed at EW.com!
