Clare Crawley’s Perfect Clap Back to Juan Pablo’s ‘Bachelorette’ Shade

ABC Clare Crawley

Clare Crawley’s upcoming season of The Bachelorette might be delayed due to coronavirus, but the 38-year-old hairstylist is still the franchise’s next leading lady, and she still does not have time for ex-boyfriend Juan Pablo Galavis.

On Saturday, the former soccer player tweeted, “I just SAW the GUYS for @Clare_Crawley Bachelorette season and its gonna be INTERESTING seeing HER get hit on by KIDS on their 20s…” to which Crawley responded, “And yet here you are, older than 99% of them and still cant practice compassion and kindness…”

Twitter users were quick to come to Clare’s defense. One person commented to Juan Pablo, “I knew you’d have some sort of jealous petty response to this,” to which he replied, “Jealous? I just see it FASCINATION…” Following even more continuous backlash from his comments on Clare’s cast, Juan Pablo backtracked a bit. He tweeted, “Hey, ALL I want is for you to FIND love, you taking it the WRONG way Clare…”

Juan Pablo is generally known as the worst Bachelor of all time, although, Peter Weber definitely gave him a run for his money. During his cycle, Crawley was his runner-up contestant, and their dramatic break-up became one of Season 18’s most talked-about moments. Now, six years later, much to Juan Pablo’s chagrin, it’s since again gone viral since Clare was crowned with the The Bachelorette title in 2020.

Juan Pablo Galavis married model Osmariel Villalobos in 2017. She’s a former Miss Earth Venezuela, and Juan Pablo, who shares daughter Camila with ex-girlfriend Carla Rodriguez, is hoping to have more children.

Talking to US Weekly in March 2019 Juan Pablo said of expanding his family, “I am trying to find a way to trick [her] into getting pregnant. I want to have more children.”

Wanting to trick someone into getting pregnant sounds exactly like something Juan Pablo would find funny. It appears he’s still the stand-up guy he was back in 2014.
