LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who is the next Bachelor 2013? Juan Pablo Galavis was named the next Bachelor 2013. The new Bachelor season will air in 2014. But Juan Pablo tells news that his first priority will remain Camila.
Juan Pablo Galavis was named the next Bachelor 2013 last night, making history for the show and immediately drawing praise from viewers and former contestants. ABC clearly had done substantial polling before hiring Juan Pablo. A recent poll by TVGuide indicated that, of likely candidates, Juan Pablo was the most desired star among viewers, commanding nearly fifty percent of the vote.
He becomes the show’s first minority Bachelor and first father. In fact, when he was brought out to a studio audience last night, attendees went crazy. Chris Harrison told news “I don’t think you’re making it out of here tonight.”
The Bachelor hadn’t gotten much on-air time this season with Des. But his reaction was noted quickly by producers. “In the history of this show, no guy has made a greater impact with less screen time”, Harrison told news last night.
Juan Pablo is a New York native, who was raised in Venezuela, and played soccer in Spain and Miami. With a big fan base, Juan Pablo seeks to kick start the franchise. The current season with Des exhibited a stark drop in ratings. But Sean Lowe’s numbers were a major success earlier this year. Juan Pablo will debut on ABC in 2014.
