People Magazine
After a drama-filled season, controversial Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis, 32, stuns viewers by opting out of the fairy-tale ending.

No ring, no “I love you.” The hunk defends his behavior in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, and Nikki Ferrell, 27, explains why she still wants to marry him.

His first runner-up, Clare Crawley, upon being let go after Galavis had reassured her of a possible future together, snapped, “I would never want my children having a father like you.”

A frank and unapologetic Galavis and a still-smitten Ferrell are ready to defend their unlikely road to romance – and why pop...

'Bachelor' Star Juan Pablo Galavais: 'I'm Not A Bad Guy'
The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis has defended his highly criticized season on the show, saying he's "not a bad guy."

The star sat down for an interview that appears in the new issue of PEOPLE magazine, revealing that what people saw on the show doesn't exactly portray who he is. He also explains why the 18th season finale didn't include a wedding proposal.

"You go on [The Bachelor] thinking if there is the connection, you propose," the 32-year-old told PEOPLE.

'The Bachelor' Finale: Is Juan Pablo The Biggest Jerk In Bachelo
Tonight Juan Pablo will either be walking out of Saint Lucia empty handed or with a future bride as we embark on the final episode of The Bachelor. JP’s family is also here to witness his last few days with Clare and Nikki. Clare will finally get her chance to meet his family as Nikki already met then at Camila’s dance recital a few weeks back. As Juan Pablo’s family asks Clare if she speaks Spanish, she confesses that her mother is Mexican but she is the only one in her family who doesn’t speak it…that’s a bit odd.

Also odd was when she first sees Juan Pablo and Camila together and all sh...

Producers Can't Wait To Move On From 'Worst Bachelor' Juan Pablo
The producers of The Bachelor are ready to move on from Juan Pablo as soon as possible.

According to E! Online, the showrunners went sour on the Venezuelan soccer player early on thanks to his anti-gay comments back in January - and the timing couldn't have been worse, as news of his words easily overshadowed the televised wedding of the last Bachelor couple, Sean and Catherine. Juan Pablo attempted to defend himself by explaining English is his second language, but he didn't recover in the public eye.

It got worse from there - on the show, several women didn't even stick around long enou...

Andi Dorfman
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

Andi Dorfman is the next Bachelorette: Women on social media were cheering as Andi Dorfman dumped Juan Pablo before he got the chance to offer her a rose on The Bachelor. So it makes sense to ABC to make the fan favorite the next in line as the object of affection in the female version of the show.

Verdict: Leaning yes. Other than being an obvious choice and ABC having a track record for choosing women...

But will she take him up on his offer of the fantasy suite? After that night in the ocean at 4:00 am, we don’t think she will join him later in the night. Or she just wanted to act like she cared deeply about it and had to make a point of saying it before she said ye...

Sean Lowe -- the "born-again" virgin star of the latest season of The Bachelor, which wrapped up last week -- and fiancee Catherine Giudici are finally able to go out in public together after keeping their relationship secret for months for the sake of the show.

The couple, who say they're in the "honeymoon phase" of their relationship, plan to abstain from sex until they marry -- something Sean hopes isn't too far off.
