Juan Pablo Galavis, the sexy and controversial star of the most recent “The Bachelor” on ABC, kicked off the month of May hosting a bachelorette bash at Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop at Paris Las Vegas.
Galavis arrived at the red carpet shortly after midnight sporting a leather jacket, a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a sultry smile, and the Latin lover posed for photographs and greeted excited fans.
When asked about girlfriend Nikki Ferrell, who was absent from the night’s festivities, Galavis said, “I wish that she could have been here. She works so hard and wasn’t able to make it. I respect her so much for it. I’m with her every day!”
Galavis and Ferrell, however, were together via Twitter before the bash. “@Nikki_Ferrell: Let’s just say J.P. should stick to soccer and dancing!” To which Galavis responded, “@JuanPaGalavis: I’m not gonna say what you should stick to @Nikki_Ferrell #YouBetterBehave LOL.”
Galavis also was overheard saying that he did some sports betting while in Las Vegas and lost “a little bit of money.” The divisive reality TV star, Casanova to some and a cocky cad to others, made his way up to the rooftop, where he enjoyed panoramic Strip views from his VIP table.
The bachelorette bash kicked off Sin City style with a champagne presentation by Chateau cocktail waitresses accessorized with custom bachelorette sashes and tiaras adorned with bridal veils.
The bubbles were flowing as Galavis distributed glasses of champagne, instead of roses, to his adoring fans at the club. “The Bachelor” bad boy also got behind the DJ booth during the party.
Galavis popped bottles of bubbly and partied the evening away enjoying Grey Goose cocktails and mingling with nighttime revelers. Chateau’s hottie host made the most of his guys weekend partying into the wee hours of the morning.
