Juan Pablo Galavis of “The Bachelor” 2014 appeared at a network party Friday night and was asked an interesting question from Sean Daly of “The TV Page. Daily asked JP how he would feel about ABC featuring a gay man as the lead. His answer was surprisingly candid and obviously not too filtered!
“No… I respect [gay people] but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids…” JP answered.
“The Bachelor” star admitted that he has a gay friend by the name of Peter.
JP does not “understand” gay people and feels they are confusing children the way the household is set up for them.
“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 said
JP added one last bit to his comments about gays. He said “there’s this thing about gay people… it seems to me, and I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not… but they’re more ‘pervert’ in a sense. And to me the show would be too strong… too hard to watch.”
Juan Pablo definitely expressed opposition to the homosexual lifestyle and its impact on society. Some will probably view his comments as being out-of-date and not very modern. Some will find it refreshing that he has old-fashioned values in his outlook.
How do you feel about Juan Pablo Galavis’ opinion on gays and would you want to see one appear as “The Bachelor”?
