Never tell a female attorney that she’s afraid to speak her mind! Last night on The Bachelor, front-runner Andi Dorfman gave Juan Pablo a piece of her mind…and when he didn’t seem very interested in listening to her, she gave him about fifty pieces more.
After a romantic and seemingly lovely date in Saint Lucia, the two headed off to the fantasy suite…where things went very, very wrong. At least in Andi’s eyes. We didn’t get to see anything that happened, but when they each woke up the next morning, viewers got two very different stories. “She may be the one! It was so amazing!” Juan Pablo crooned. Andi looked at the camera like a woman who’s just experienced crushing disappointment. “It was a disaster,” she said. “I hope he didn’t think that was a good date.”
It seemed less that Juan Pablo did anything wrong, per se, but that Andi realized she just did not like the guy. Among many things, she implied that he was rude, obnoxious, arrogant and completely full of himself. He wasn’t interested in anything she had to say. He asked her no questions about herself, and when she did try to speak, he talked over her. Basically, Andi came to the conclusion that she was dating a total assh*ole.
Juan Pablo has unfortunately fallen into a very unappealing stereotype of a man from Miami: cocky, arrogant, a little condescending toward women, and more interested in name-dropping than finding out his potential fiance’s views on social or political issues. I’m not saying every guy in Miami is like this – lord, no – but I grew up here. The Juan Pablos are definitely a breed. I’m not sure why they chose him to be the Bachelor in the first place – sure, he’s hot and athletic. I guess his accent is sexy if you’re into accents, although his tenuous grasp on English has proven to be a problem more than once this season (“Ees okay, Andi!”). He just kind of seems like the ultimate d-bag…and Andi may not be the first woman to realize it, but she was the first to call him on it. On television. To his completely oblivious shock.
When she did call him on it, he seemed almost…apathetic. As I tweeted, during the show, this is the second time he’s claimed a woman could be “the one” and then acted very unaffected when she decides to leave – the first being Sharleen. He’s falling for them…but if they wanna go, that’s cool. He’s totally chill about it. Juan Pablo seemed defensive about his language skills, telling Andi that he says, “It’s okay” repeatedly because he doesn’t know very many words in English – and that if he called her a “default” contestant, it was because he didn’t understand what the word meant. But she wasn’t buying it. “You don’t know anything about me,” she accused him, pointing out that he has no idea about her religion, her political views or her opinions on social issues. He blinked at her. “What’s my religion?” he asked. “Catholic,” she shot back quickly. BOOM.
Unfortunately, I think both Andi and Sharleen were swept up by his charm and then realized, well, he’s kind of stupid and shallow and not really a nice guy. If you look through some of the women’s Instagram and Twitter accounts, you’ll see that Andi, Sharleen, Kelly and Nikki are all still very tight. And none of them seem to be very fond of Juan Pablo, either. Well, Nikki is probably contractually obligated to be quiet until after the “final rose,” but my prediction (spoiler-free, just speculation) is that he chooses Clare and Nikki joins the We Hate Juan Pablo Club.
What do you think – will Juan Pablo end up with Clare or Nikki? Was Andi too hard on him, or is he a total d-bag? Let me know what you think. Besitos!
