Juan Pablo Galavis calls gays ‘more pervert’: Says no to gays on ‘The Bachelor’

Despite breaking down his own barriers of becoming the first person of color to star in ABC’s “The Bachelor”, former soccer star Juan Pablo Galavis doesn’t believe another barrio should be broken. As TV Guide reports on Jan. 18, the current “Bachelor” star doesn’t believe there should be a gay or bisexual bachelor.

Galavis shot down the idea in an interview with The TV Page, where of course he followed up the homophobic comments stating that he has many gay friends. He most likely alienated those friends and a particular demographic of the show’s viewership with the following comments:

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

He goes on to say that also he doesn’t understand the different structures of family, he does respect them but feels it would be too much for television and in some respect would be crossing the line to have gay and bisexual exposure on a show such as “The Bachelor”.

Although the show is not necessarily a show made for kids, Juan Pablo Galavis further alienated the LGBT community by accusing gay people of being “more pervert in a sense”.
