Terrell Owens says he's ready to do "bigger and better things with his life" -- and step one is becoming first black "Bachelor" so he can score his "special someone."
Owens was doing a video session on "Hang w/" alongside “Celebrity Apprentice” co-stars Ian Ziering and Lorenzo Lamas ... who both suggested T.O. could be the perfect man for the ABC show.
"You heard that? From two white guys! I should be 'The Bachelor!' Holla back!"
Ya gotta watch Terrell sell himself as a the ultimate catch -- "I'm a guy of good taste, quality ... I've had my share of women, so to speak."
One of those women is Rachel Snider -- who's currently in a nasty divorce with T.O. after a Kardashian-esque two week marriage.
Still, Owens swears he's ready to commit to the right woman ... a woman he hopes to find on a show featuring people that crave attention even more than he does.
Why not give the man a shot? He can’t do any worse than Juan Pablo.
Smashed by Beer Bottle
At First Post 'Bachelor' Gig
3/31/2014 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
No matter what you call him -- Juan Pablo or 'The Bachelor' -- people still hate the guy ... and a woman reminded him of that by firing a beer bottle at him in Atlantic City this weekend.
JP was sitting on a couch during his paid appearance at Harrah's Resort ... when a woman in the crowd hurled one of those aluminum beer bottles at him.
Sources in Harrah's tell us she nailed him in the shoulder ... and Juan, along with his gf Nikki Ferrell, immediately asked to be moved to a VIP cabana so he wouldn't have to dodge anymore flying objects.
As we first told you ... Juan demanded that no one refer to him as the ex 'Bachelor' during the AC gig ... saying he's famous enough on his own.
We're guessing the chick with the spare beer isn't the only one who remembers his d-baggery from the show.
'Bachelor' Juan Pablo
I'm NOT That Guy From That Show
... That Made Me Famous

Who Needs 'The Bachelor'???
I'm Famous Without It

"The Bachelor" star Juan Pablo is already suffering from delusions of grandeur -- insisting he's big enough to host major nightclub events around the country ... WITHOUT mentioning his claim to fame, because that's exactly what he demanded.
TMZ has obtained the flier for Juan's upcoming club appearance at The Pool After Dark in Atlantic City on March 29th -- and NOWHERE on the flier does it mention "The Bachelor."
Looking at it, you'd think Enrique Iglesias canceled and the club was forced to hire a cheap replacement.
And it's no accident -- sources tell us, Juan specifically instructed the casino NOT to associate him with "The Bachelor" in any press releases or fliers.
And his ludicrous demands didn't end there -- we're told Juan agreed to a 15-person meet-and-greet on the condition no one asked about his reality show stint. Same rule goes for reporters looking for interviews.
Best part -- he's getting around $20,000.
Oh yeah, Nikki -- whom JP ultimately settled on by the end of the show -- will be there too. That is, if they're still together.
'Bachelor' Juan Pablo
He's Just Not
That Into You

Nikki Ferrell, girl, we hate to break it to you ... but Juan Pablo is NOT feeling it.
First, he refused to tell you he loved you during ABC's finale of "The Bachelor" ... despite Chris Harrison's repeated questions.
Then this weekend in the Dominican Republic, you kissed him at a wedding reception you guys were at. You're clearly into it ... he is CLEARLY NOT.
When this goes South ... don't say we didn't warn you.
'Bachelor' Juan Pablo
EES OK, I'm Done with This Crap

"Bachelor" star Juan Pablo has told Warner Bros. he won't do ANY post-season publicity for the show ... and for its part the studio is saying good riddance.
Sources connected with the show and the studio tell TMZ ... Juan Pablo outright refused to appear on "Good Morning America" Tuesday, and made it clear he was done with publicity of any sort for the show.
Our Warner Bros. sources say that's just fine with them, because they think he damages the "Bachelor" franchise because of his d-baggery.
And even GMA wasn't fighting to get Juan Pablo on the show.
As for the show itself ... we're told producers grew to HATE Juan Pablo, and it appears the feeling was mutual.
Boss Stunned She's Leaving for Dating Show
2/28/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
New "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman has stunned her boss -- the D.A. of Fulton County -- by bailing in the middle of a murder trial to appear on a TV show ... but he's grudgingly giving her a shot at stardom.
TMZ obtained the letter written by Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard Jr., who calls her request "highly unusual."
Truth be told ... most law firms and prosecutors' offices would give someone like Andi her walking papers, because they would normally view the request as flaky. But Howard grudgingly agreed to take her back, calling her "a valued member of the DA's office." She's also hot.
But two strings attached. Her leave will be unpaid. And, she has until May 31st to come back. After that, she's just another professional reality star.
He ended his letter with, "Wish you best of luck."

Here's the thing. We've now confirmed that Andi is indeed this summer's "Bachelorette."
So case closed.

It's official ... Mt. Sean Lowe has erupted -- the ex 'Bachelor' is walking around with a grin that can only mean he finally cleared his pipes by losing his alleged virginity a few weeks after getting married.
Lowe couldn't contain his joy at LAX on Thursday ... exactly 18 days after tying the knot with Catherine Giudici.
The 30-year-old insurance salesman and fitness model claimed he was saving himself for marriage.
So ... 18 days later. Still smiling ear-to-ear? Way to go, Catherine.
in a Coma
2/10/2014 11:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
UPDATE: 2:23 PM PT ... Shayne's husband, Nik Richie, just went on the record with TMZ, telling us, "Shayne had a life-saving emergency surgery. She is on a ventilator system and is in a sedation-induced coma. Her vital signs are now currently stable."
Tragedy has struck the Lamas family -- Lorenzo Lamas' daughter Shayne (famous for her stint on "The Bachelor") has just lost her baby from a freak pregnancy complication ... and she's in a coma.
TMZ broke the story last month -- Shayne and her husband Nik Richie (founder of TheDirty.com) were pregnant with their second child. Shayne was 16 weeks along.
But Sunday, at 7:35pm, law enforcement sources tell us paramedics were called and rushed to Nik and Shayne's OC home after Shayne collapsed. She was taken to the hospital.
When Shayne arrived, doctors determined she was bleeding internally around her uterus and the situation was dire. Doctors were stumped and brought in specialists to figure out what was causing the bleeding.
Shayne lost the unborn child during surgery.
We're told Shayne is currently in a coma and not breathing on her own. Doctors are optimistic about her recovery.
Nik and Shayne's dad Lorenzo are by her side.
Juan Pablo's No Homophobe
... Says Jilted Contestant
1/21/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"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.
I Should Never Have Done 'Bachelor'
And I Definitely Wouldn't Sleep with Him
1/20/2014 8:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Former bachelorette Victoria Lima -- who was booted from "The Bachelor" last week -- tells TMZ, Juan Pablo's anti-gay comments are a HUGE turn-off ... so sleeping with him is out of the question.
Victoria tells us, "If I could do it again, I probably wouldn't go on the show with him being the Bachelor."
Victoria says if Juan Pablo asked her to sleep with him now ... she'd turn him down, and not just for the anti-gay comments. She says he's coming off as kind of a jerk on the show -- a real turn-off.
As we reported, Juan Pablo told a reporter ... he doesn't believe there should be a gay "Bachelor" because gays are perverted influences on children. He later apologized, saying he was quoted out of context ... and his English was bad.
Victoria's NOT on board ... calling the comments "thoughtless and inconsiderate."
She adds, "We should all have the same opportunities when it comes to finding love. Why shouldn't we have a gay bachelor? This is the 21st century, people."
