Is former-Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis trying to get with current Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher? On Thursday, Juan Pablo, who previously admitted that he found JoJo attractive, revealed that he was in JoJo’s hometown of Argyle, Texas. He went so far as asking JoJo where she’s at and recommendations on where to go.
Juan Pablo, who was the Season 18 Bachelor, tweeted a photo of himself in front of the Argyle welcoming monument sign. He asked JoJo where she is.
JoJo immediately replied. She told him to enjoy the scenic route.
@JuanPaGalavis NO WAY?! My hometown! Enjoy the scenic route— JoJo Fletcher (@JoelleFletcher) May 26, 2016
Juan Pablo followed up with some teasing and again asking JoJo about her whereabouts. He also asked her how she’s feeling after watching the season premiere of her The Bachelorette season. It seems that Juan Pablo is interested enough in JoJo that he watched her premiere or at least kept up with what happened on it.
Yes WAYYYYY... Where you AT? Wondering how you FEELING after watching that 1st EPISODE!!! https://t.co/hvrkJrG8vi— Juan Pablo Galavis™ (@JuanPaGalavis) May 26, 2016
Juan Pablo then asked JoJo, who now lives in Dallas, another question. This time, he asked her for recommendations on good places to eat around Argyle. He also told her that he’s loving all of the area’s ranches. So far, JoJo hasn’t responded to his follow-up tweets.
Any GOOD places to EAT around ARGYLE @JoelleFletcher? Loving the RANCHES...— Juan Pablo Galavis™ (@JuanPaGalavis) May 26, 2016
Just what is Juan Pablo doing in JoJo’s hometown? He only shared that he’s staying at a friend’s ranch for the weekend.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, just prior to the announcement that JoJo Fletcher, who came in second for Ben Higgins on The Bachelor season 20, was going to be the star of The Bachelorette season 12, Juan Pablo Galavis made it known that he finds her attractive. He declared that if she does become the next Bachelorette, he might just have to return to the show in a bid for her.
I have READ so MANY good things about JoJo in the past WEEKS that if she is the NEXT bachelorette, I MIGHT have to sign up AGAIN...— Juan Pablo Galavis™ (@JuanPaGalavis) March 15, 2016
Juan Pablo, who competed for Desiree Hartsock on The Bachelorette season 9 prior to becoming the Season 18 bachelor, added that he’s Team JoJo and that he finds her cute.
When a viewer tweeted that it’s hilarious that Juan Pablo, who was a controversial bachelor, thinks that he would be welcomed back on the show, Juan Pablo hinted that he was actually already offered an opportunity to return but turned it down.
As it turns out, Juan Pablo was welcomed to return. Mike Fleiss, the franchise’s creator and executive producer, actually said that he and the other producers would love for Juan Pablo to return to compete for JoJo.
Juan Pablo’s engagement to Nikki Ferrell, his final pick on his The Bachelor season, ended in January of 2015. Despite appearing on VH1’s Couples Therapy to work out their issues, it just didn’t work out. In an interview with E! News shortly after the split announcement, Nikki said that they really tried to make their relationship last.
“I wasn’t going to quit. I’m not a quitter. I tried everything, he tried, too. It wasn’t just a one-side thing….we real-life tried, not TV-tried.”
She explained that while she did feel that he really did love her, they were just two very different people.
“There was a while where I did feel like he was totally in love with me. Was it too late? Probably. I think at that point I had come to the conclusion that we were different people and we were never going to be on the same page.”
Nikki also defended Juan Pablo from his critics. She said that he is a very good guy.
“He’s so caring…He’s a good person, I don’t have anything bad to say. It’s just a difference of lifestyles. He cared so much about me and my family and he’s a good person, he really is.”
As JoJo’s premiere episode aired on Monday night, Nikki admitted that it was much better watching the show than being on it. Nikki got engaged to her boyfriend, Tyler Vanloo, in January, 2016.
It's been a while but I've finally come to love Monday nights again. ❤️???? It's SO much better being on this side of the TV. #Bachelorette— Nikki Ferrell (@Nikki_Ferrell) May 24, 2016
Did Juan Pablo Galavis actually accept the offer to compete for JoJo Fletcher? While the Season 12 The Bachelorette premiere did show the return of a former Bachelor, in the form of Season 14 star Jake Pavelka, a close family friend who crashed the rose ceremony to tell JoJo that he hopes she’ll find love, there was no sight of Juan Pablo. The preview for the season also doesn’t show him. Perhaps the producers are keeping it a big secret?
