Juan Pablo Galavis has claimed that he wasn’t portrayed in a good light on “The Bachelor,” but his runner up Clare Crawley says his true personality came through on the show.
In a March 17 interview with “Good Morning America”, Crawley rehashed her brutal breakup with “The Bachelor” star, which came after he said something offensive to her during a helicopter ride in St. Lucia.
But the 32-year old hairstylist also revealed that she has no regrets: “I went into this feeling I'm going to be 100 percent open and I'm going to be 100 percent myself and I'm going to think about what I do and, because I thought and then acted, I'm proud of that,” Crawley said.
And while she says she was 100 percent herself on the show, she feels that Juan Pablo was, too.
"As short of a time period as we get to see on TV, I think your true personality kind of comes through in the end," she said. "I think mine did and I think his did as well."
Galavis was featured on this week’s People magazine cover with the headline, "I Am Not the Bad Guy." He told the magazine, “I lived a good experience but didn't always see a good experience [on TV].”
On his final blog for the celebrity gossip magazine, Galavis complained that 1000 hours of footage is edited down to 20 hours of TV. He also added, “One of the things that hurt me the most was seeing my family and friends suffering with how I was being portrayed and misjudged in the media, because they are the ones that know Juan Pablo, the guy who is not The Bachelor. To them, I just want to say thank you for always being there for me and covering my back when needed.”
