Attention, lovers of love, lovers of lover stories and people who just love hot guys and getting sucked into the contrived nonsense of terrible reality TV dating shows:

Juan Pablo Galavis begins his fairytale journey for love on The Bachelor January 5! The sexy 18th (!) season premiere is but a few weeks away.

Of course, this being The Bachelor, we already know the supposed results (see The Bachelor spoilers if you’d like to), but hey, it’s all about the JOURNEY.

Seriously. We need a drinking game that involves how many time that word is used over the course of the next few months. Trust us, you will be trashed.

The Bachelor Season 18 Premiere Promo

ABC has aired two promos for the 2014 season, which begins on with a one-hour special on Sunday, January 5, followed by two hours the next night.

Needless to say, the ladies are STOKED about Juan Pablo Galavis, the single father from Desiree Hartsock’s season and the first Latino Bachelor.


Featured in the promos are some of Juan Pablo’s limo arrivals, letting us see which of the 27 girls are already getting a taste of their 15 minutes of fame.

Also getting some early air time? JP’s abs and arms.

In addition to making history as the first non-Caucasian star, Juan Pablo also holds the distinction of having had almost no exposure on The Bachelorette.

Desiree Hartsock kept him around awhile, but the former soccer pro finished well back of Chris Siegfried, Drew Kenney, Brooks Forester and Zak Waddell.

He made an impression with the viewers in that short amount of time, however, leading the casting department to make the no-brainer call to have him star.

Juan Pablo as The Bachelor … good choice?
