The Bachelor First Look: ABC Wants You to Fall in Love With Juan Pablo This "Juan-uary"—See the Hot Pic!

The Bachelor, Juan Pablo ABC

Is it Juan-ary yet?!

No, that isn't a typo. January is officially being dubbed Juan-ary in honor of The Bachelor returning on ABC with Bachelorette fan favorite Juan Pablo Galavis kicking off his search for love.

And we've got your exclusive first look at ABC's new poster featuring the sexy new Bachelor, teasing fans to "fall in love with Juan-uary!" (OK fine, twist our arm, ABC. We guess we'll have to fall in love with Juan Pablo!)

And the new poster features an adorable pic of rose petals raining down on a smiling Juan Pablo, who doesn't appear to be a fan of buttoning his shirts. (No complaints here!)

Juan Pablo won viewers over when he was a contestant on Desiree Hartsock's season of The Bachelorette, thanks to his good looks, athletic background (He's a soccer player!) and his relationship with his adorable 4-year-old daughter Camila. And even though Desiree didn't find love with the 32-year-old Venezuelan (she's now engaged to Chris Siegfried), she was sure he would become the Bachelor after she sent him home sans rose. "They would love to see him as The Bachelor because I get that on my Twitter feed all the time," she told us prior to his casting.

And the start of 2014 will be a good one for Bachelor Nation as ABC has decided to air an hour-long special on Sunday, Jan. 5 entitled The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo, which will give viewers a glimpse into the sexy single dad's life in Miami, before the season premiere on Monday, Jan. 6. Then on Jan. 12, the series will crash fans' viewing parties on a Behind the Scenes special, while Jan. 19 will see a retrospective looking back on the franchise's all-time favorite couples on the Bachelor Love Stories special.

Of course, this all leads up to Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's highly anticipated nuptials, which will air live on Sunday, Jan. 26. (Consider this your save the date!)

The Bachelor season 18 premieres Monday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
