Clare Crawley Says ‘No Regrets’ for ‘Bachelor’ EndBy: Pam Wright - March 18, 2014
The collective cheer could be heard across the nation when Bachelor contestant Clare Crawley told Juan Pablo Galavis exactly what she thought of him.
Crawley, who believed she was getting engaged to JP, was blindsided when he told her she was not “the one” — not that any of the girls were “the one” for the evasive Juan Pablo who has yet to publicly declare his love for the winner, Nikki Ferrell.
When JP tried to come in for the consolation hug once he dumped her, Clare put her hand up to him, pushing him away.
Her parting words were, “I would never want my children having a father like you.”
In typical JP style, once she was out of earshot, he mumbled under his breath, “Whew, I’m glad I didn’t pick her,”
Some of us are still ticked at his reaction.
Crawley told Good Morning America Monday that she wouldn’t change a thing about her reaction or the outcome of the show.
“The greatest thing is that I have zero regrets,” said Crawley. “I went into this feeling I’m going to be 100 percent open and I’m going to be 100 percent myself and I’m going to think about what I do and, because I thought and then acted, I’m proud of that.”
Crawley, 32, said she was “falling in love” with Galavis during the taping, but harbored doubts even up to the final rose ceremony.
“Because of the conversation we had in the helicopter, there was that doubt in my mind,” Crawley said, referring to the pair’s final date during which Galavis apparently said some sexual comments that didn’t sit well with Crawley.
“I’m shocked,” Clare later said. “He chose to tell me something that no woman wants to hear. That he doesn’t know me and some sexual thing I don’t want to repeat. It was insulting and it was offensive.”
Crawley didn’t repeat the words Galavis said to her, but a source told Us Weekly he used crude language.
“He said, ‘I love [expletive] you but I don’t know you,'” the source said.
“Going into the final rose ceremony, I felt like I’ve been here the whole time and said that I would follow through to the end and I just figured I’m going to be there and no matter what happens, I’m going to say how I feel,” Crawley said.
Galavis has been so vilified by the media that he agreed to appear on the cover of People magazine under the headline, “I’m Not the Bad Guy,” in order to give his version of the situation.
Crawley says, despite Galavis’ efforts to clear his name, the reality show actually did show the “real” Galavis.
“As short of a time period as we get to see on TV, I think your true personality kind of comes through in the end,” she said. “I think mine did and I think his did as well.”
