PASADENA, Calif. - If you need another reason not to watch "The Bachelor" - and trust me, you don't - here it is: Juan Pablo Galavis, the current bachelor on the ABC series, is a big, stinkin' homophobe. A narrow-minded bigot.
And, no, that's not too harsh.
In an interview with Sean Daly at ABC's star party/interview event at the Television Critics Association press tour, the utterly oblivious Galavis outlined his reasons why there should never be a gay bachelor in any upcoming season of the show:
"I don't think it's a good example for kids to watch that on TV," Galavis said.
"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."
