It's no secret there's been a ton of negativity surrounding this season of The Bachelor. But while fans, celebrity and otherwise, have shared their distaste for Season 18 star Juan Pablo, it's also been one of the most talked-about seasons in the series' 14-year history. Which begs the question: Does a detested Bachelor actually make for a more successful season?
The Bachelor: Where are they now?
The Bachelor's Juan Pablo is confusing the women — and making them cry — yet again.
On Monday's episode, Clare showed up at Juan Pablo's hotel room in the middle of the night for some scandalous swimming. But while Juan Pablo was very much into the late-night swim at the time, during the cocktail party he told Clare he never should've allowed it to happen. A few tears from both Clare and Juan Pablo later, host Chris Harrison is weighing in on the awkward situation and sharing what he told the Bachelor during the un-aired deliberation.
It pays to be a reality TV villain.
Courtney Robertson, the model who won Ben Flajnik's heart on Season 16 of The Bachelor, has scored a book deal, Us Weekly reports.
Currently titled I Didn't Come Here To Make Friends - Confessions of a Reality TV Villain, the book will detail Robertson's side of the Bachelor story that includes what she calls a "tumultuous 11-month relationship that ultimately imploded."
The Bachelor's Sean Lowe is playing by his own rules this season and proved that by handing out more than 10 roses — before the first rose ceremony.
On the Season 17 premiere, viewers were reintroduced to the sexy Texan as he began his search for the woman of his dreams. But while Sean was struck by some women almost instantly, others didn't make a good first impression despite their over-the-top entrances and personalities. Host Chris Harrison shares his thoughts on how Sean did Night 1, gives us a glimpse into who will be the season's villain and fan favorite, and explains why one familiar face got a rose, while the other one didn't.
Bachelor fans expecting Sean Lowe to be a quiet, simpleminded Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes will be pleasantly surprised when the 17th season premieres on Monday.
"[People who think,] 'Crap, he's like vanilla toast,' — well, he's not," host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "People will be surprised by his personality and charisma, and he's also got an edge to him. He's not afraid of confrontation or saying the wrong thing. "
