Critic Reviews for The Bachelor Season 18

[Juan-Pablo] didn't really make an appearance last night. Yes, he danced a couple of salsa steps here and there, but they were so cursory... more than anything, it was the hopeless ladies that induced several cringe-worthy "ay dios mío" moments.

The debut episode brought us everything we've come to expect from a season premiere: awkward introductions, goofy attention getters, embarrassing stunts, even a stupid pet trick. In other words, good times.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

In the words of Juan Pablo, "It's about to get real."

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

[Juan Pablo] managed to exhibit more sex appeal and charisma in about 12 minutes of total screen time than all the other bachelors wooing Desiree combined.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Juan Pablo Galavis is looking for love on The Bachelor Season 18. We're just looking for gratuitous shirtless Juan Pablo Galavis. Thank god this is a show always happy to oblige that request, amiright?

    Great father but and idiot and douche as the bachelor. He seemed like such a nice guy on Desiree's season of The Bachelorette but turned out to a total douchebag.
