Bachelor Juan Pablo Spoilers

The Bachelor Juan Pablo Episode-by-Episode Spoilers

Episode 2 (airing Jan. 13th): Los Angeles, CA (18 to 15)

After night 1 happened, and before his first 1-on-1 date, that’s when Sean & Catherine visited Juan Pablo at his house to talk to him about whatever. You know, since they’d never even met each other before, I’m sure it was some deep conversation where Sean gave savvy advice. Or just another way to let people not forget Sean & Catherine are getting married live on ABC Jan. 26th. Gotta do that and shove down people’s throats a successful relationship from the show considering we’re certainly not gonna get a marriage out of this season. You notice how the Trista/Ryan, Jason/Molly, and the Ashley/JP weddings all took place when the show wasn’t airing? Doesn’t it interest anyone why they couldn’t make Sean & Catherine’s AFTER Juan Pablo’s season ended? Why take any attention away from the season currently in progress? What, you couldn’t wait another six weeks? Please. Oh that’s right, I forgot. It’s because JP’s season is an absolute farce and they need a positive love story to deflect attention away from it. My bad. UPDATE 12/18: It’s just Sean that meets with Juan Pablo, and it’s before he meets the ladies on night one.

1-on-1 date: Clare Crawley. Was at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, where Des had her stunt man group date last season. They built a man made ice skating rink, brought in fake snow and trees, and added a bunch of lights. They had a private concert performed for them by Former “X Factor” season 1 runner up Josh Krajcik. Clare gets a rose. As posted back on Oct. 3rd, here is a distant picture of how the set up looked:


Clare didn’t get to meet Camila, but Juan Pablo, his parents, and Camila apparently filmed something together on this day. Maybe they let Camila ice skate before Clare showed up or something, but Clare didn’t meet her. I’ve was just told that the parents and Camila were seen around these grounds on the day of the date being filmed.

1-on-1 date: Kat Hurd. They took a private plane to Salt Lake City, Utah to participate in an Electric Run. Kat gets a rose. Plenty of people in attendance were live tweeting this, and I covered it in Sept. 23rd’s column. Here are four links to Instagram videos captured by others from that date:

Group Date: 13 girls participated in a photo shoot with rescue puppies where the girls had to dress like the dog they were taking pictures with. The girls were: Nikki, Andi, Christy, Chantel, Lucy, Victoria, Kelly, Elise, Chelsie, Alli, Cassandra, Lauren, and Renee. Sharleen, Amy Long, and Danielle did not get a date this week, so Juan Pablo had chocolates sent to them back at the mansion. Kelly got the group date rose. Victoria got so wasted at the hotel after party, she never comes back to the mansion with the rest of the girls and just stays at the hotel. Juan Pablo visits her at the hotel the next day and says it’s best that she goes home then.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Chantel Forrest & Amy Long. Victoria Lima already eliminated earlier.

Episode 3 (airing Jan. 20th): Los Angeles, CA (15 to 13)

1-on-1 date: Cassandra Ferguson. They rode in a water car down in Long Beach, then they came back to his place and he cooked her dinner. Cassandra got a rose.

Group Date: 10 girls went and played soccer at StubHub Center in Carson, CA. The 10 girls were: Nikki, Andi, Christy, Lucy, Sharleen, Kelly, Alli, Lauren, Danielle, and Renee. Kat, Clare, Elise did not get a date this week. Nikki got the group date rose.

1-on-1 date: Chelsie Webster. Bungee Jumping. Afterwards, they got a private concert with country singer Billy Currington. Chelsie got a rose.

On the day of the rose ceremony, Juan Pablo came over and cooked breakfast for the girls and there was a pool party during the day.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Lucy Aragon & Christy Hansen

Episode 4 (airing Jan. 27th): Seoul, South Korea (13 to 11)

Group date: 6 girls (Kat, Danielle, Cassandra, Nikki, Chelsie, Elise) joined the Korean pop group, 2NE1, on stage for a performance of their hit single. Nikki got the group date rose (Yes, that’s back-to-back group date roses for Nikki). Video footage from this date was tweeted out and was posted in my column on Sept 30th.

1-on-1 date: Sharleen Joynt. The two of them went shopping in Seoul and explored the city. Sharleen got a rose.

Group date: 6 girls (Alli, Andi, Kelly, Lauren, Claire, Renee) got a tour of the city. They got fish pedicures, took pictures in a photo booth, sang karaoke, then they took paddle boats that you foot paddle with on the water. Andi got the group date rose.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Lauren Solomon & Elise Mosca

    Too bad Brooks wasn’t the Bachelor, solely for the reason that he could have picked Chantel Forrest. She could have married him to become Chantel Forrest Forrester. Bummer.

    Can’t wait to see the ratings plummet this season even more than they did during Des’s. I have a feeling we’ll all enjoy poking fun of this franchise more than ever this season.

    This is hilarious!..Went to high school with Nikki and clearly nothing has changed! lol… I can’t wait to watch!! Karma, that’s all I got to say!! Haha!

    Usually, I enjoy reading Reality Steve the way Steve enjoys watching Bachelor/Bachelorette – for entertainment. But I must say, making a convincing argument on who the next Bachelorette will be before the Bachelor even airs is pretty good.

    Can’t wait to watch this season and see how it lines up with what you said. Last year happened…whatever… but your blogs make this show worth watching.

    I’m looking forward to JP’s season starting not just to watch the train wreck of a show but also to get the comments section busy again!!

    Funny, it was obvious that Nikki was the most similar to JP. I thought Andi seemed way too good for him in every way.. glad she figured it out. Also, Claire looks sweet in her photos. I know it’s not a great indicator, but it’s something in the eyes.. same way I felt when I saw Catherine’s photo for some reason. I wonder if JP picked Nikki because he sensed her insincerity, making it easier for them to inevitably split- Nikki’s endless selfies and profiles in and of themselves spoke volumes to me when Steve originally posted them. She’s all about herself.

    ^Amen, ccrider!

    Erin: you hit it exactly right. Bens season featured a totally unlikable tool with bad hair who picked one of the two most hated Bachelor contestants in the history of the franchise. JP has bad hair, is totally into himself and barely speaks the language…. And was so compelling that he got about 3 minutes of airtime on an unwatchable, content starved season of The Bachelorette. Pair that with the house b*tch getting picked! and these two are going to get crucified by the media…. Probably even more than Ben Flatdick and his rent a wh*re Courtney. I’ll say it again, I don’t see the franchise surviving this season and I don’t see any compelling Bachelorette contestants coming out of this season either. It’s over. It’s been a nice run. Time for RS to get a real job.

    Just saw the first pre-veiw for JP’s Bachelor season. I’ve been disappointing in him being the bachelor from the first talks that he might be next. I can hardly even understand him!! I watch every season, so I will try this season too. Why would they pick someone who has such a hard time with English??

    I’ll bet the majority of the audience and the people watching on TV were thinking “who the F is this guy?!” when Juan Pablo presented at the AMAs. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more previews than ever for his season. ABC has gotta be desperate.

    Daisy Fuentes with Juan Pablo on last night’s AMA’s.

    D-List meets Z-List.

    Juan Pablo looks like a young cross-eyed Bjorn Borg.

    Love, love, love a good train wreck. Knowing this is all B.S. makes it that much more comical. I believe JP is still with Carla. To many recent pics of them looking real cozy. I was NEVER that comfortable with my ex, and we have a child together. Friendly with him, but not lovey dovey like these two are. Absolutely agree with Steve, he is just trying to advance his AND her careers.
    Des and Chris look like they just may make it after all. That is one girl that was gonna find a husband no matter what. Kiddos to them.

    Thought Juan Pablo was a fake from the start. On the other hand, I’ve just finished watching The Bachelor Australia on line. Got to search Google for episodes. It was the first Bachelor in Australia, and they did a good job. The mansion makes the US Los Angles mansion look like a tacky slum house. Really enjoyed watching it. The women were more mature, the Bachelor Tim Robards is a and a real guy and was sincere in finding love. He and his lady are going strong with lots of Instagram and Twitter pics together, with their families, at family events, photos with grandmas, and out at public events. They are very in love, and it’s refreshing to see one of these work out. Too bad Fleiss and Co. doesn’t air this version in the off season. From what I saw, I’d rather watch the Australia version. It made me want to catch the first flight out for Sidney.

    What does Sharleen living in Canada have to do with becoming the next bachelorette?
    Jillian Harris is Canadian and was living in Canada when she was named bachelorette. Jessie Palmer was no longer living in the U.S. when he was named bachelor. He had already moved back to Canada because the NFL team he played for cut him before filming started.

    1st – Thanks Reality Steve for pre-gurgitation of the upcoming season. I was pretty sure I wasn’t interested. Now I’m certain.

    Kudos to Sharleen – a woman after my own heart. Being on the show was clearly a publicity move for her, and after she sufficiently milked it, she removed herself from the cesspool before she messed around and got picked during the final rose ceremony (ala Brooks). I love it!!! Bet she got out of that limo and thought to herself “Oh, hell no! You’re not worthy of a-ll this, here.”

    I’m still laughing at the comment about Juan Pablo looking like Bjorn Borg with cross eyes. Admittedly, I wasn’t sure who that is, so I Googled him, and darned if the comment wasn’t dead on the money. Love the accent, but he looks a little odd to me.

    Enough with Juanary crap, already, ABC!

    The overwhelming majority of the people associated with this show are in it for their ‘fifteen minutes.’ Not just the leads. Why else would someone go on a show to get married to someone who is not only a stranger with 24 some odd other women/men also vying for him/her, and whose identity they don’t even know until the casting??? Seriously. It’s either that or mental illness.

    I really hope this franchise finds its’ demise soon, but somehow I suspect that ain’t happening anytime in the foreseeable future.

    Finally… Sad news about Gia. She seemed like a genuinely great person. Seemed happy, too. I guess you just never know. RIP

    I agree Andi will prob be the next bachelorette. She seemed to stand out the most out of all the girls. She was attractive but not too annoying or weird…and they’re making a point of her being a prosecutor. Makes sense for her to leave…I don’t see her with JP at all….and I agree it seems weird casting all these white women when JP seems very Latino.

    Lauren H deserves what she gets… She was dumped only a couple months before? Not even close to appropriate to start something new.
    Juan Pablo impressed me with his memory of details about the different girls – nice job!

    I’ve been skeptical about the choice of JP as the Bachelor since day 1. Yes, he is gorgeous and, yes, he appears to be sweet, charming an authentic good guy looking to get married. But, I question his sincerity. First, a Latino from Miami most certainly is not a match for a sweet, clean cut American girl. I say that because I live in the area. If Spanish is not your first language, you will not survive living in Miami, even if you are in love. Second, the most beautiful girl from the Ohio or anywhere else in the country will be a plain Jane against the Latino beauties in Miami. I doubt any girl who is not Latin will acclimate very well to life in Miami or the culture. Also, the fact that Juan Puablo travels for work raises quite a few red flags in my book as to how the relationship will survive? Any girl moving to Miami from out of the area will find the most complete culture shock of her life. Sorry, ABC, as charming as he is, I don’t buy any of it. Sorry viewers if you get your hearts crushed this season – don’t expect it to last. I am sure JP has his pick of beauties locally and does not need to be fixed up. He is undoubtedly the Bachelor for other reasons and will go on to something else no doubt.

    Love reading your recaps, Reality Steve, but you showed your ignorance with the comment, “Juan Pablo has never dated a white woman in his life.” His ex, Carla, the mother of his daughter, is indeed White. You can be White and Latina, Asian and Latina, Black and Latina, etc., etc. White is a race and Latin/Hispanic is an ethnicity.

  20. Curmudgeon

    January 8, 2014 at 12:35 AM

    Kabuki has it. And the fact is that Juan Pablo and his family, as well as his ex and his daughter, ARE, for all practical purposes, White. So waht if they speak Spanish? There is no “indio” blood in any of them really.

    some latina’s in Miami are gorgeous, some are not….you go Steve give it to them plain and simple….entertainment galore… if going on next week, every girl in that house was crying in next weeks previews…maybe they need some Bojangles and Juan should feed them.

    Hello Steve I find your blogs to be very Funny and interesting.. Even though I like the anticipation leading up to the finale, I also like the entertainment of all the different outcome and opinions the bloggers do.. Anyway I read some where in one of your blogs About Jimmy Fallon guessing the top 3.. whether he knew or it was intuition it was right up my alley.. after first episode my top four were: Renee, Clare, Nikki, & Andi.. So It is possible to know and get a idea after first show.. Anyway love the work you do, it is very humorous!!!

    I liked Kelly! I think she needs to be the next bachelorette (Molly too) lol

    Strange. My wife and I watched the first show and Nikki was the one we thought would be the most normal and sweet because of how she was acting with the kids, etc. Really was sweet. I guess, if she acts as RS says on the show, that its a disappointment.

  25. citygirl29

    January 25, 2014 at 10:43 PM

    Thanks Steve! Love to hear your predictions and spoilers for the show. It actually makes it more fun to watch!! It’s my weekly dose of no-brainer entertainment.

  26. gggoodgggirl

    January 28, 2014 at 2:43 AM

    Thanks Steve! I appreciate your predictions and the humor you add to each season of this franchise. I honestly don’t care if you get every little detail right, and in fact I fully expect that the very last episode may or may not correct… I like that little bit of suspense. But clearly you have consistently gotten all of the episodes through the overnights correct every single season.

    Now, let me tell you what is REALLY frustrating. I hate it when OTHER sites misconstrue what you say or predict and include those untruths in their articles. Its really annoying and then somehow points back to you having your facts wrong… but its NOT you that has it wrong, its THEM. For example, I just read on 2 sites that this season is the first season where the finale did not end in a proposal. Grrrrr…. that is NOT true and it is NOT what you said. You said “since Brad’s season…” and in fact Brad’s first season, Jesse Palmer’s season, and Jen Schefft’s season did not end in proposals. So there you have my venting…

    Keep up the great work, love your site, and love the dimension of fun and humor you add to the show!

    He chose Nikki ? Yuk. she was the most conceded one there ! And trust me with that negativity, she is not going to make a good mother. Shame ….

    Has reality Steve mentioned who the next bachelorette will officially be?

  29. lexasmygirl

    March 10, 2014 at 5:03 PM

    To be honest, I thought Clair was the nastier of the two. Always whining and always pushing everyone aside. Nikki may not have been overly friendly to the others, but from the editing, to me, it appears that Claire is the worst of the two.

    March 10, 2014 at 11:25 PM

    Wow, you nailed it, Steve! I loved Chris’s attempts to get SOMETHING out of JP at ATFS — and his comment to “shower it off” at the end – what a riot!
    Hey, do you know what the “sudden change of plans” was that JP referred to? Would love to hear that, as well as what was actually said in the helicopter to Clare — Thanks for your excellent ‘reporting,’ and I am looking forward to the spoilers for The Bachelorette!
