Sean Lowe to Juan Pablo: Open Up or Don't Be The Bachelor!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Juan Pablo Galavis could learn a few things about being The Bachelor from his predecessor Sean Lowe, who, as nice as he is, took him to task this week.

Lowe, who married his final rose recipient Catherine Giudici, started out by defending Galavis' decision not to propose to Nikki Ferrell on the season finale.

"My take on last night: I commend JP on not proposing if he isn't ready. And he certainly shouldn't feel pressured to say 'I love you,'" the reality star wrote.

However ...

Sean Lowe, who was in the audience for the awkward After the Final Rose special, says Galavis should have at least tried to articulate his feelings.

"As the Bachelor, you can't say I want to keep my feelings private," he explained. "You owe it to the fans and network to open up. That's the job."

Then, responding to a fan who argued in Juan Pablo's defense that "not everyone is cut out for public attention," he wrote, "Then don't be the Bachelor."

Lowe also discussed the exchange between Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo, coming down squarely on the side of the former for just doing his job.

"Lastly, disrespecting the nicest guy in show business @chrisbharrison should be a crime," he tweeted. "That's my take. Wish them nothing but happiness."

Lowe further opined that Galavis "didn't handle himself well" and shared that he was surprised by "how [Juan Pablo] fought the producers on everything."

And when a fan asked if Lowe had "taken JP out back and [given] him the business," the former Bachelor star replied, "Ha! Can't fix a guy like that."

Sean Lowe also doled out some hard-won wisdom to Galavis at the beginning of the season, wisdom that the single father apparently didn't take to heart.

"At all costs, make sure if you kiss someone, the other girls don't see," he said.

Juan Pablo loves f--king Clare Crawley ... and giving mixed signals throughout.

Lowe also advised Galavis at the start of the season to be open-minded.

It's hard to think of a way to describe Juan Pablo any less accurately.

Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell: Will it last?


I thought that Juan Pablo did open up. But, I guess I was wrong. Anyways, Juan Pablo did pick a woman only that he did not propose to her. People should be glad that he did not do what Brad Wollack did in his first season.

@ Ernest

No one is taking Juan Pablo to task for not proposing including ABC. He is not the first that did not proprose at the "FINAL ROSE" and certainly will not be the last. What everyone had a problem with, was his nonchalant attitude during the show, his behavior towards some of the contestants and his obvious rude, manipulative, hallow narcissistic inexcuable behavior at the WTA episode. He had a contractual obligation to answer honestly when asked if he found what he set out to achieve which he explained in his own words to be about a man going on a journey to find "LOVE" Yet four (4) months after filming he was still talking about " I LIKE HER ALOT". Ofcause no one can be forced to fall in love or be in love. Nikki at the WTA told the world that he had not told her that he loved her, The reaction was unanimously one of disbelief and all he could say was look at us, we are together. Out of respect for Nikki, he could have said, we are dating to see where it lead's. This could have satisfied even his fans. The question still looms, did he find LOVE?
