Season 18

Juan Pablo Galavis, the sexy single father from Miami, Florida, is ready to find love. He'll have his own opportunity to find his wife and stepmother to his daughter when he stars in the 18th edition of The Bachelor.

With his Spanish accent, good looks, salsa moves and undying devotion for his daughter, Juan Pablo, 32, was a fan favourite. Sadly, Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock couldn't see a future with Juan Pablo and sent him home from Barcelona.

Although he was blindsided by not getting a rose, the experience of being on The Bachelorette opened his eyes to the possibility of finding a real, everlasting love.

He witnessed firsthand how it worked with Desiree, and has decided that he can't give up on love and on giving his daughter, Camila, what she wants more than anything else in the world a brother and a sister to complete their family.

Juan Pablo is ready and hopeful that he'll find love and the missing puzzle piece to fulfill his family here on The Bachelor.

The eighteenth season begins with the 32-year-old single dad from Miami, Florida, arriving at the Malibu mansion and being introduced to 27 bachelorettes - including a former NBA dancer who has supermodel looks but is a shy single mom, a "sexy" hairstylist who tries to hide the pain of losing her father, a "dedicated" first-grade teacher who is convinced her fate is to be with the Bachelor, a world-class opera singer, and "a flower child."

Nurse Nikki will present a stethoscope to Juan Pablo so he can listen to her heart beat, "flower child" Lucy will arrive barefoot, dancer Kat will show off her salsa moves, music composer Lauren S. will peddle in on a "piano bike" while playing her own composition, Kelly will bring her dog Molly with her to meet Juan Pablo, and Clare will deliver "the jaw-dropping moment of the night" when she appears to arrive seven months pregnant.

During the initial cocktail reception, Juan Pablo will throw a dance party in attempt to calm the bachelorettes' nerves. However, tensions will still be high when he determines whom to give his first-impression rose to.

The premiere will conclude with Juan Pablo whittling his bachelorettes down to 18 during the season's first Rose Ceremony.
