Bachelor in Paradise: Jef Holm in Talks to Join New Show, Insists It's "Different" Than Bachelor Pad

Bachelorette star Jef Holm is still looking for love.

Emily Maynard's ex exclusively reveals that he may be signing up for the upcoming Bachelor spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise

"I'm in talks to do it," Holm told me at last night's Target-hosted iHeartRadio record release party for Shakira's new self-titled album. "I just talked to some of the producers yesterday about it."

While Holm admits he doesn't "know much" about Paradise, he did insist it's not going to be a copycat of the now-defunct Bachelor Pad.

"There are going to be guys and girls on an island somewhere outside of the country and they're looking for people to really focus on love for this," he said. "Instead of Bachelor Pad, how it was just people doing challenges and trying to team up with people, I think this is going to be different.

"I think it's going to be about really finding relationships and meeting people and having a good time," Holm added.

When I commented that it sounds like something ripe for the spread of STDS, Holm said, "I agree…If I did do it, there probably wouldn't be any stable relationship afterwards."

Fortunately, a source tells E! News, all possible cast members will be tested for STDs before the show. "Anyone who tests positive for an STD will not be cast," the source said.

And speaking of sleeping around, Holm defended his recent remarks that he thinks Juan Pablo Galavis was "by far the sleaziest Bachelor."

"I didn't mean it to make a lot of headlines," Holm said of his scathing critique. "They just asked me what I thought and I think it was after an episode where he kissed maybe every girl on the show…I just said what kind of came to my mind."
