The Bachelor returns Jan. 5, but the drama of Juan Pablo’s journey for love starts now with the release of the season’s supertease. Watch our exclusive first look below. It’s all smiles, sunsets, and shirtlessness — for the first 70 seconds. Then the switch you’ve been waiting for happens: It’s tears, tequila (“Give me three shots of Patrón, and I’ll be topless”), and one of the women sitting on the floor of a bathroom wishing Juan Pablo were dead.
If the cryptic voiceovers are to be believed, Juan Pablo is “doing nothing like anything that has ever been done” and “no one has ever dealt with this before.” But as he says, “I’d definitely rather end up with nobody than [have] my daughter not be proud of her dad.” He even walks out of a confessional.
The two-night Bachelor premiere begins Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
