Is controversial “The Bachelor” reality TV star Juan Pablo Galavis already planning a Las Vegas wedding after he proposes marriage and becomes engaged on tonight’s finale of the ABC series?
Juan Pablo hosts the two finalists on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia — hairstylist Clare Crawley and nurse Nikki Ferrell. They both receive roses, but only one will get the proposal and the ring.
ABC executives promise that it will be an “explosive and contentious” season finale. More than 360 girls have been heartbroken during the 18 seasons of the top-rated show.
The scenes of love lost and won were filmed months ago and have been kept secret until tonight’s three-hour blockbuster, but we do know that Juan Pablo was in Las Vegas this past NASCAR Weekend and attended the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez-Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night.
Juan Pablo checked out MGM Grand’s Forever Grand Wedding Chapel while here and took photographs of the venue. He even smiled for a selfie there but captioned it with three emoticons of a face screaming in fear!
As of now, everybody and everything remain in top secret about the outcome of the show and his visit here.
