Juan Pablo Galavis

Gay 'Bachelor' Would Be Bad Influence on Kids

"The Bachelor"' star Juan Pablo Galavis apparently believes gays are more perverted than the average bear ... because he thinks putting a gay equivalent of him on the show would poison the mind's of children.

Juan Pablo raised some waxed eyebrows when he spoke to The TV Page saying "I don't think it is a good example for kids" ... and then said gay people are "more pervert in a sense."


Juan Pablo's gag reflex apparently isn't that good ... because he thinks the show would be too hard to watch if the star were gay.

So, we gotta ask ...


update_graphic_red_bar
12:55 PM PT -- Warner Horizon Television and the show's executive producers just released a statement saying, "Juan Pablo’s comments were careless, thoughtless and insensitive, and in no way reflect the views of the network, the show’s producers or studio."

2:25 PM PT -- Juan Pablo posted an apology on his Facebook page saying his words were "taken out of context" (even though TV Page released the audio with the story) ... and he has nothing but respect for gay people.

Juan Pablo also says he didn't mean to call homosexuality "pervert" ... and blames the bad choice of words on his crappy English.

In many ways Juan Pablo is correct, as offensive as it may be to Harvey. Kids are very impressionable and they simply don't need some ideas placed in their minds, especially at such a young age. My sister never had the slightest inkling of attraction to females until her dad came out of the closet. Shortly after she started experimenting. Less than a year later she was a lesbian. Coincidence? Yeah, keep telling yourself that

He is confused with winning one of those queen contest. He thinks he has to be something think "Two and a Half Men". The thing is if he exceeds our expectations and get married it will not lead to a regular TV show. Those people with foreign accents always get it wrong, even when they have to explain their ethnic background.

LOL tv execs says it doesn't reflect their views? Prove it by casting one! IT would never happen, up until this season they didnt even have a minority bachelor/bachelorette.

We may have a gay bachelor after a gay president (if/when that happens)

So obvious he's gay. Ricky Martin bashed being gay too before he came out.

People are taking this WAY out of context. If any of you actually watched the show, you would know that he isn't very good at English and YES, some of the things he says don't come out right. Give the guy a freakin break.

I think he's right. Gay people shouldn't be on "The Bachelor."

(wait for it)


They should have more sense and class than that. :)

Uhhhh....that's a show for bravo. Why so much hate for personal beliefs. The bs is when people say "sure that would be great" to a show like that when they would never actually watch it. A lot of people support gay people's right to happiness without wanting to watch them making out, myself included.

A CHILD knows in kindergarten or first grade… or at least by ninth grade. Therefore, to castigate him or try to blind him only hurts. You cannot block who a person is, because it will only make that person resent you deeply.

MOST BACHELORS are gay anyway… or at least on the DL. I've never watched The Bachelor, but I do know that there are a lot of bisexual bachelors. Women and gay men alike have to compete for a straight guy. It's just a hard, cold fact. Gay guys go to gay clubs to dance, and to dance only. Otherwise, to pick up, they generally will go to a straight club. Get with it… if you want your show to be reality.
