A united front.
That's what Season 18's contestants seemed to be at The Bachelor: Women Tell All special, all ganging up on controversial Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis.
Not only was he called out for his controversial anti-gay remarks, but Andi Dorfman continued her anti-Juan Pablo campaign from last week's episode, which featured an explosive argument (and breakup) between the pairing.
Plus, Sharleen opened up about her decision to leave the ABC reality hit and one of the ladies revealed she's already dating someone else during their chats with host Chris Harrison during the special that aired on Monday, March 3.
Andi on the Offensive: Picking up right where she left off when she exited the show last week, Andi was not shy when it came to sharing her thoughts on Juan Pablo. She once again expressed her disgust with his behavior in the fantasy suite (she called his comments about her being in the Top 3 by default "offensive, but...really hurtful") and revealed she actually pretended to fall asleep to avoid talking to him.
Saying he was "extremely negative" about the whole process, Andi told Harrison, "I think he actually thinks he was a great Bachelor.'' So how did Juan Pablo defend himself when he took the stage later? "I wouldn't waste my time," he said of the claims he didn't take the show seriously. "At the end of the day, I took this very seriously. It is what it is."
And as we exclusively reported, Andi is the frontrunner to be the next Bachelorette, and the Atlanta-based lawyer added fuel to the fire by saying she's ready to find her "great love." Preferably in front of ABC's cameras.
WTA MVP: Um, raise your hand if you wish Kelly would've stuck around longer after watching tonight's special? Not only is she a walking quote-generator ("He didn'y say Camila whenever he was in the ocean!"), but Kelly was the one person to call Juan Pablo out for his headline-making controversial remarks about why a gay Bachelor wouldn't be a good example for children. You see, Kelly actually has a gay parent and was deepy offended by his comments. (You. Go. Girl.)
"I love gay people. They were born that way," Juan Pablo defended, adding that his remarks were "taken out of context." He also said he wanted to talk to Kelly after the special, telling the dog lover, "I will not waste four minutes. I'd rather talk to you for an hour."
Sharleen Explains It All: One of the few ladies who didn't really join the Juan Pablo-bashing party, the reserved opera singer opened up about her decision to leave the show. Citing only a "physical connection" with JP, Sharleen explained "I knew he wasn't the one for me ultimately…we just didn't get each other completely."
Happily Ever After: Another contestant to stick up for Juan Pablo? Single mother Renee, who described the Venezuelan Bachelor as "sweet and romantic." Though she was a fan favorite, Renee was eliminated in the Top 4, something that was "hard to watch," she admitted. "It's tough." But don't feel too bad, as Renee is currently seeing someone, coyly telling Harrison she is "very happy." (And Wetpaint recently reported that Renee is actually engaged!)
The Bachelor finale airs next Monday at 8 p,.m. on ABC.
