Damage control?  Just ask the hypocrites over on A&E how to cash in on that mess.
 
2014-01-18 06:51:31 PM  
Unless you're going to change the way the show works.  Having gays on the show is a moot point.   So why ask the question in the first place?

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.

Those two should hook up.

Because The Bachelor does such a good job of teaching our children about healthy adult relationships.

Sounds like ratings on the Bachelor are getting low, and they need to follow the A&E Formula for drumming up viewers.

At least we know that Juan Pablo is straight and won't pull any last minute shenanigans.  Why not a gay bachelor or bachelorette show?  Put it on Logo and everyone can see even gays can be shallow and stupid also.

I remember Bravo doing something like that a few years ago.  Except the twist was some of the guys were straight so while picking Mr. Right he had to make sure he picked a gay guy.

Since he isn't a what they view to be a typical redneck Republican like the Duck Dynasty people are, there will not be much in the way of boycotting and petitions to ban him.

You wanna know what I think? I think The Bachelor is some kind of deviated prevert. I think the American public is finding out about ABC's preversion, and they're exposing The Bachelor's mutiny of preverts.

No" sick" would be a Pedo Bachelor show but this is Fark so I guess it would get a "spiffy" tag these days .

I submitted this with a much better headline. The guy is a  closet case. The Daily Mil has a much more detailed story.

I've never watched that show, but thought the bachelor couldn't sleep with any of the potential candidates. Have they changed that now?

Judging from the way so many of the anti-gay people go on, it seems to have something to do with children.

This article reads like middle school gossip. Juan says they are perverted in a way (he means they are more touchy feely) and so people publish that Juan thinks gays are perverts.

He's not the best at English so I'm not going to get up in arms over it.

"... what I said and I apologize. I know gay parents and I support them and their families. They are good parents and loving families."

I call bullshiat on this "apology"... Either he's lying about how he feels now, or he was lying when he made the original statement. Even the biggest hypocrite in the world couldn't reconcile 2 beliefs at the same time that were that blatantly contradictory. This guy is about as insincere as they get. Fark him...
 
2014-01-18 09:52:47 PM  
All I know about this guy is the whole soccer-player part, and that's only because of going through soccer-related news.

On that front... anyone who calls him any sort of a star is lying their ass off. Juan Pablo, a midfielder/forward, was a journeyman who played for eight different clubs over his senior career from 2001-08. The most prominent club he was ever with was Caracas FC, and even then he was relegated to their B team. The most known appearances he has with any one club over his career was his very last stop, 23 appearances in 2008 with Miami FC (who have since been renamed the Fort Lauderdale Strikers). Over the course of the six stops where we have both a count of appearances and goals, he has 16 goals in 92 appearances. For a guy at his position, that's terrible.

Venezuela is the red-headed stepchild of South American soccer. They're the only member of the South American confederation that has never qualified for the World Cup.

Why should anyone pay any regard to the opinions of reality show cast members? Just because some average schmoe performs on a show aimed at an audience with the intellectual capacity of a brain-damaged goldfish is no reason to give his or her views on cultural topics a second's notice. Did you know who this Juan Pablo character was a year ago? Will you care about his opinions a year from now? So why care now?

I am so tired of the exaltation of importance of  people just because they have their mugs on the tube for a hot minute. Let's ask Carrot Top about possible solutions to the Goldbach conjecture! Up next, the Kardashians host a round table discussion on nuclear proliferation on the Indian subcontinent!

The Bachelor is basically a self-perpetuating show at this point. Nobody is under any pretense that the show is actually going to make a lasting match anymore. The prize the 25 contestants are really fighting for is the right to be the star of the next season, or failing that, the right to hang around long enough to stay on the show and go nice places and be given stuff. None of it has any effect on anything outside of the show. It's the televisual equivalent of being trapped in a time loop.

He just threatened to come to the St Louis Fark party and meet up with his haters.  This is probably an actual douchebag you could smell from a mile away in real life.

You know I've never watched any of these shows but I feel like it'd be fun to go on the Bachelor just to fark with some heads.

"Hi, I'm Ringshadow, I have two degrees, I'm a nuclear power contractor and why YES, this is actually my hair cut into a neon mohawk. What kind of shoes am I wearing? Steeltoe so I can kick the other women in the vagoo if I have to. Now, I've done some research and I found a really good burger joint and a bubble club so I'm thinking we hang the formal wear back up put on some jeans and go attempt to have a good time. Do you like comic books? Oh, there's some concerts this weekend. If you dance we should go see Mustard Plug."

/and I would be thrown off the show so fast the fake tits on the other women would spin around

"I don't think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV"

Truer words have never been spoken about reality TV. That's what he's talking about, right???
