"The Bachelor" starring Juan Pablo Galavis starts on Jan. 7, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Fans will also be treated to a special preview show, "The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo” on Sunday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
- What are the names of Juan Pablo's bachelorettes?
- Who is the girl who shows up 7 months pregnant?
- Who gets the first impression rose?
- Who is eliminated at the rose ceremony on the first night?
Of course, there are plenty of spoilers hinting at who Juan Pablo picks in the end, but most fans just want to know a little more about the ladies who will try to get the final rose this season. See the list below for information about all of the contests.
For those of you who were fans of Sean Lowe's season of the "Bachelor", he'll be making a guest appearance on the "Countdown to Juan Pablo" show on Sunday night.
Apparently he gives Juan Pablo some advice about handling 27 ladies, but it's likely just ABC's way of reminding us the Sean Lowe's wedding to Catherine Giudici will air later this month. Prepare yourself for the words "journey" and "for the right reasons" during their conversation.
Which girl shows up pregnant? Actually, no one is pregnant (that we know of), but Clare Crawley wears a fake baby bump when she comes out of the limo. Interesting.
Who is gets the first impression rose on Monday night? Sharleen gets the first impression rose but doesn't seem all that thrilled to get it, telling Juan Pablo that their connection seems "a little forced." Reality Steve states that Sharleen is one of the girls who leaves the show early, apparently making her exit when the show films in Miami.
Who is eliminated at the first rose ceremony? Juan Pablo eliminates 9 women on the first night: Christine Llano, Valerie Eredia, Maggie Gantt, Amy Jokinen, Lacy Faddoul, Alexis Morgado, Lauren Higginson, Kylie Lewis, and Ashley Poe.
