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 ladies of The Bachelor were feisty on Monday's Women Tell All, but not amongst each other. Instead of the usual cattiness, this time around the group banded together to attack Juan Pablo.
From Andi's follow-up of last episode's ending to Kelly's emotional reaction to Juan Pablo's off-camera remarks and a bunch of stuff in between, Juan Pablo certainly took his fair share of heat. But it was also surprising who came to his defense, especially when it came to the almost unanimous claim that all his conversations were superficial.
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.
