In just a few weeks, “Bachelor” fans will begin watching Juan Pablo Galavis embark on his quest to find true love, and it’s becoming clearer who he’s looking for.
In a recent media call, the father of one (who named Heidi Klum as his celeb crush) said he’s keeping an open mind, though he’s hopeful that at least one of these 27 women who will vie for his heart have a few specific traits.
“[I'm] looking for a woman that is smart, that is honest, that likes sports a little bit maybe, and was looking for somebody that knew how to dance because I love dancing,” he said. “That’s one of my biggest turn on, or like I fall in love with that.”
Galavis, who was raised in Venezuela and returned to the United States to play college soccer, won over audiences last year when he competed on “The Bachelorette.” It was on that show that he showed off his dancing abilities, and made it clear how much he loves to move.
“But in this situation I say to myself, ‘Juan Pablo, not all of them are going to dance. Not all of them will be good dancers, so please don’t let them dance yet,’” Galavis, 32, said. “Just get to know them better.”
Although he’s flexible about certain things (he wants more children soon, but he’s understanding if his future wife doesn’t and he doesn’t care if she wants to live in Miami), a love of food is important.
“I like food a lot. So I know I don’t want to [date someone who says], ‘I don’t like sushi, I don’t like this, I don’t like this,’” he said. “Maybe that would be a horrible turn off.”
So did he find what he was looking for? Galavis isn’t telling.
“You have to watch until March, you know, that’s part of it,” he said. “I wish I can tell you, but I’m very happy. I’m a happy guy; I’m always happy.”
