The man who ABC pays to sleep with a throng of desperate, unhinged women is causing a stir. The Bachelor’s Juan Pablo Galavis (who I guess didn’t hear about the Duck Dynasty controversy) recently told The TV Page:

The former Venezuelan soccer star said Friday night that he would be 100 percent opposed to having a cycle of the reality dating show feature an openly gay or bisexual bachelor.

“I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV,” he told me.

“Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having peoples…Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed…It is confusing in a sense. But I respect them because they want to have kids. They want to be parents. So it is a scale…Where do you put it on the scale? Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody’s desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV.”

I could maybe kinda see his point if his point were solely that this subject matter would be difficult to get on network television in prime-time, but he makes it plainly clear that’s not his point.

Juan Pablo’s awkward — and somewhat unexpected — comments continued as he then accused gay people of being “more pervert in a sense.”

The single dad — who has been known to ditch out on dates to spend time with 4 year-old daughter Camila — was careful to note that he has many gay friends and co-workers.

But he still believes the show would be “too hard to watch” with a non-straight leading man or lady.

Okay. Yeah. Sure. The words he’s saying a hurtful and backward and vile and hate-filled. But on the other hand, Juan Pablo Galavis is very, very handsome. Let’s please not lose sight of that.

7 ‘Bachelor’ Hopefuls More Eligible Than Tim Tebow http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-bachelor-hopefuls-more-eligible-than-tim-tebow/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/7-bachelor-hopefuls-more-eligible-than-tim-tebow/#comments Tue, 06 Mar 2012 22:19:12 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=246886 Here you go, girls. Get a load of these heartbreakers.

The post 7 ‘Bachelor’ Hopefuls More Eligible Than Tim Tebow appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Though he’s likely too busy being married to God, The Bachelor host Chris Harrison has announced that he spoke with Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow about joining the show. “I’ve actually met Tim Tebow. I met him about becoming our next Bachelor,” says Harrison. He went on to say that Tebow said yes but the demands of his football career will prevent his inclusion.

That’s fine because there are at least a million candidates btter suited for The Bachelor. In fact, of those million, here are the top seven. Here you go, girls. Feast your eyes on these heart breakers.

Franck Ribery

What women wouldn’t swoon at the opportunity to romance an international footballer? These guys are wealthy, tremendous athletes who are adored all over the world. Even Franck Ribery, who looks like the offspring of Michael Richards and Sloth. The man is a national treasure in France. Sure, you might have to compete with underage prostitutes for his affections, but boys will be boys.

Ted Williams

Ted Williams is off the streets, rehabbed, and has rebuilt his life. In other words, dude is ready to mingle. And that voice, that silky, golden voice that so perfectly purrs the time and temperature. America’s ready to get to know the new and improved Ted Williams. And I’m sure the lovely young succubi on The Bachelor would be more than ready themselves.

There are reality shows and then there are reality shows your girlfriend will make you watch. Sounds like torture? It doesn’t have to be—there actually are a few programs out there that take the entertainment of both sexes into consideration, even if they seem to be only appealing to the opposite sex on the surface. Don’t judge a reality show by its cover. Case in point—Keeping Up With The Kardashians. While she’s lapping up the girl-on-girl drama, do we even have to point out what you’ll be lapping up? Here’s a hint: her initials are K.K. Have at it and get points for being a good boyfriend who’ll watch her shows (while secretly really enjoying it in the process).

 

American Idol

Reality Shows Your Girlfriend Will Make You Watch

The American Idol freight train first got going in 2002 and has become a runaway hit. It has slowed down in recent years but has made a comeback last season thanks to a massive personnel overhaul. Gone are original mainstays Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul. The extravagant Steven Tyler and the beautiful Jennifer Lopez now call the shots alongside Randy Jackson.  This show has great laughs along the way as many self-proclaimed vocalists attempt to wow the judges but end up making a mockery of themselves on national television. The most enjoyable part of the season comes when only the crème de la crème remain. This is the time you and your girlfriend frantically text in your votes after each show to support your favorite performers and keep them in the mix. You’ll be surprised how fun it actually is.

 

Keeping Up with the Kardashians

As we touched on above, Keeping Up with the Kardashians follows the exploits (and cat fights) of the Kardashians including stepfather and former Olympian, Bruce Jenner, while also featuring a lot of Kim’s beautiful booty. Although the show follows the family doing the most of mundane chores, women love to tune in every week—we’ve already told you why men have stopped complaining.

 

The Bachelor

For male viewers,  ABC ‘s The Bachelor really isn’t too difficult to watch. A single bachelor, good looking and successful, is made to choose among a pool of beautiful women, most of whom are are head over heels for him. Slowly, the guy eliminates the women he is not interested in until he is left with the one he feels is most right for him (usually the sexiest one in the group). Women hate the way the guy plays around with the feelings of the women in the group as he breaks hearts left and right. Most guys on the other hand, cheer him on. Especially as he makes out with just about all of them.

 

What Not to Wear

Clinton Kelly and Stacy London of What Not To Wear

Hosted by the lovely Stacy London and the ever-so-funny fashion consultant Clinton Kelly, the show features participants nominated by their closest friends and family because of their utter disdain for style. The duo teaches these unfashionable individuals how to properly mix and match clothing and in-show hair and makeup stylists then give them a serious makeover. The result is usually a shocker as the previously bland looking participants end up looking like fashion models. Making normal women look hot? How can that be a bad thing to be subjected to?

 

Cheaters

Reality Shows Your Girlfriend Will Make You Watch

Joey Greco confronting a cheater

The wild and woolly syndicated show, Cheaters follows host Joey Greco, as he takes on cases of suspected infidelity. The host uses private detectives who stake out the partner in question and set up surveillance cameras to help catch them in the act. When they have sufficient evidence, the tapes are presented to the complainant who then confronts the cheating partner. The production even has a brazen camera crew that gets into the middle of whatever melee erupts. Watching the show is often used as a preemptive measure by your wife or girlfriend to make sure that you are on the up and up because if you’re not, Joey Greco is just a phone call away. If you yourself have nothing to hide, watching the confrontations is always a barrel of laughs.
