ABC’s “The Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis says gays should not be on the show, “are more pervert in a sense”

I was at ABC’s cocktail party in Pasadena last night but apparently left before the arrival of The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis.

He was asked by The TV Page if there should ever be a gay bachelor on the hit reality show.

Calavis’ answer is shocking: “No… I respect [gay people] but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids…”

“There’s this thing about gay people… it seems to me, and I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not… but they’re more ‘pervert’ in a sense. And to me the show would be too strong… too hard to watch.”

“Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having peoples… Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.”

A single father of a 4-year-old daughter, Galavis was sure to state that he has gay friends.

9 Remarks

  1. ahhhhh so being gay is not a “good example for kids”…but having a child out of wedlock is! AND starring in a tacky show that REALLY makes a mockery of any type of marriage…along with the inappropriate sexual aspects of said show (horny single straight guy in various stages of undress, looking for lasting “love”, while sampling the “charms” of 20 desperate women in the meantime)…UGH, this clueless guy needs to get a grip if he thinks he is a spokesperson on this or ANY topic…

  2. Really Juan? Being gay isn’t good for kids but banging multiple women on a reality show IS good for kids? Go fuck yourself you hypocritical asshole.

  3. Speaking of children Juan, you think it’s a good idea not to pay hold support? The state of Florida did which is why they garnered your wages. And you have the gall to say GLBT’s aren’t a good example for children? What rot.

  4. Hold=Child

  5. Really? Ok, well, lets hope when this upstanding and exemplary figure after his twist with the stupid reality show, finds his woman and has kids, and is traveling down a dark road and swerves off the side and lands upside down in a ravine, never finds any gay person passing by at the time and that no gay person dare render aid for his straight family. How perverted would that be? People need to grow up and limit their unnecessary comments about their superlative, pompous, and empty thoughts!

  6. He seems a bot confused as to what values he wished to express?

  7. Thanks for posting this, Greg. This alleviates my viewing dilema for Monday nights! I always watch the CBS comedies and absolutely *love* 2 Broke Girls and Mom (great actresses on both shows!) but was kind of smitten with Juan Pablo. Now I am not so smitten because ignorance isn’t attractive. Back to my broke girls and moms! :)

    The Bachelor/ette series makes heterosexuals look like perverts when all is said and done. Swapping spit with numerous partners in each episode and having sex with multiple people on the show is a good example for children? Get real. The Bachelor also sets back women’s rights about 100 years by showing the absolutely most deperate who will do *anything* for one guy.

    Nevertheless, I’m grateful I don’t have to waste any more of my time on this silly (NON)reality show now that I know where Juan Pablo stands on gay people. And, personally, I pray they never have a gay bachelor because the ridicule and ignorance will run rampant.

    Well isn’t he the picture of paragon of virtue? But which ones, he has a a child out of wedlock or is she a child of divorce? The only way he can meet women (which is suspect in itself) and get a date is to go on a ‘reality’ t v show with a bunch of low self-esteemed,desperate skanks. Maybe his only choice since no self-respecting,secure and smart woman would have the likes of him. All man kind should make the journey to the mountain top where this ‘wise’ guru of wisdom sits so we can all be enlightened by his ‘wisdom’ because only he and his duck dynasty ilk can be trusted to save all man kind,just don’t make reservations for me,I’ll be too busy washing my hair to go.

  9. What a hypocrite.
