The Bachelor's Chris Harrison: Juan Pablo Can Be His Own Worst Enemy

Juan Pablo Galavis

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.

Ratings: Mind Games Bombs; Glee Returns Up

Christian Slater

ABC's Tuesdays-at-10 woes continue.

Mind Games premiered Tuesday to a 3.6 million viewers and a 1.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, on par with Lucky 7's and Killer Women's equally dismal debuts in the slot this season. The drama followed a special Tuesday episode of The Bachelor(8.1 million, 2.4), which was even with its Monday numbers.

The Bachelor's Chris Harrison: Andi Would Make a Fantastic Bachelorette

Andi

If only the walls of The Bachelor's fantasy suite could talk.

What started out as a great date between Juan Pablo and Andi seemingly turned into a nightmare by the next morning. Although the former came away thinking the duo's evening together went well, Andi had a totally different take, later explaining that it was beyond awful. Andi later removed herself from the competition, but on the way out she tried (and failed) to explain to Juan Pablo why she felt he was inappropriate during the night. Plus: She straggled with how little Juan Pablo seemed to care that she was leaving.

Bachelor's Chris Harrison Breaks Down Hometowns, Previews Andi's "Nightmare" Fantasy Suite

Juan Pablo Galavis and Andi

On The Bachelor hometown dates, Juan Pablo was met with more than one disapproving family member, but that didn't seem to affect his ultimate decision.  

As Juan Pablo traveled to meet each of the four remaining women's families, it was in Atlanta with Andi and Sacramento with Clare that he met the most resistance. While Andi's dad was on the defense almost the minute the pair sat down, in Sacramento it was Clare's older sister Laura whose disapproval left Clare in tears. But even though Juan Pablo appeared to have a tougher time with Andi and Clare, he sent Reneehome after a nearly perfect date.

Premise: True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties. The list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.
