'The Bachelor'

Juan Pablo's No Homophobe

... Says Jilted Contestant

 "The Bachelor" star Juan Pablo Galavis is not a hateful, homophobic butcher of the English language ... he's a sensitive, caring man who just can't express himself very well ... says a woman who just got booted off the show.

Chantel Forrest -- a black account manager -- tells TMZ she got to know Galavis well during her time on the show and says he would NEVER offend anyone because they're gay or a different color.

Galavis -- who's Venezuelan but born in the US of A -- told an interviewer gay people are more "pervert" than others ... then asserted the ol' language barrier defense.

Chantel says Galavis shouldn't be bashed for bad grammar.

"I was not offended by his comments at all," she tells TMZ. "They wouldn't have changed my opinion of him. I wouldn't change anything."

In other words ... she'd probably still sleep with him ... we're guessing.

What is the reason for writing that she is a "black account manager"? Wouldn't "account manager" have been suffice? The color of her skin has no bearing on anything in this story. Pfft. Crap reporting like this brings out the creeps like YOUR DOOM who commented above!

...and all were having a great time at Pizza Hut and then out of nowhere, a drunk 6'9" ginger gay guy burst in and started waving a gun around... Everyone in the room was homophobes at that point...

"Probably still sleep with him"?

Why, is she automatically a whore or something because she's not a bigot and judgmental like the liberals at TMZ staff central?

She appears to me to have class . Are the writers just a bunch of misogynistic asses nowadays?

Yeah, it's amazing how much you can learn from someone after a 3 minute conversation surrounded by a dozen people and cameras. I'm sure she's absolutely right.

Still beating this one to death? And, btw, referring to her as a "black" account manager and suggesting she's a slut because she has the common sense not to go apepoopy over his comments - that's not offensive, TMZ?

She's baaaack    

I don't watch these shows but you can't help but be exposed to the people on them. That bitch is just another famewhore. She "got to know him well" Seriously!!??? She was sharing his English as a Second Language (or so he claims) ass with upwards of 20 other women but she acts like they had a three year long exclusive relationship. Babe, you don't know freaking Jack ... or Juan.
