Juan Pablo Galavis to Be Newest 'Bachelor'

August 6, 2013

Juan Pablo Galavis is to be the first non-Caucasian "Bachelor" or "Bachelorette" in the reality TV shows' history, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Galavis is a 32-year-old former soccer player from Venezuela, who is now living in Miami with his 4-year-old daughter.

He will be the star of "The Bachelor" in Season 18, after previously competing for the affection of most recent "The Bachelorette" star Desiree Hartsock. She ultimately got engaged to finalist Chris Siegfried Monday night.

ABC and the shows' producers have been criticized in the past for not casting men and women with more diverse cultural backgrounds on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."
