First of all, let's state the obvious: It was weird watching “The Bachelor” on Monday. If I didn't already have mixed feelings about Juan Pablo -- which, uh, I definitely did -- it certainly didn't help to learn his feelings about gay people this week. If you're just catching up, on Friday JuanPabs told a reporter that he couldn't envision a season of “The Bach” featuring a gay individual. Because they are “more pervert.” *Face palm.* On Saturday, ABC responded , calling his comments “thoughtless and insensitive.” JuanPabs then apologized and blamed a lot of the misunderstanding on his language barrier.

Juan Pablo Montoya celebrated his return to Long Beach after 14 years with a fourth-place finish. Montoya won the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in 1999 but then left for Formula One racing in 2001 and, six years later, NASCAR stock car racing. He's back in IndyCar with Team Penske. The Colombian started 16th, was sent to the back of the 23-car field for improperly entering the pits when they were closed but then gained several spots thanks to a multicar crash midway through the race.

Did they or didn't they? That, my friends, is the eternal question that plagued me in the hours following Monday night's episode of “The Bachelor.” Actually, I slept for solid eight, but whatever: I still spent more time than I care to admit debating with my roommates whether or not Juan Pablo had sex with Clare in the ocean. I'm aware I need help. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's go back to the beginning, this week's arrival in Vietnam, where the ladies were put up in a pretty amazing hotel overlooking the countryside.

Juan Pablo Montoya leaned his back against a wall, adjusted his sunglasses and waited for the next reporter to put a camera or voice recorder in front of him. It was media day for drivers in Sunday's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. And though it's been 14 years since Montoya raced in the event, he was the center of attention. Montoya is the prodigal son who has returned with fanfare to the Verizon IndyCar Series after stints in Formula One and, for the last seven years, NASCAR stock car racing.

Can we get a slow clap going for Jason Mesnick? After five long years, he is no longer the most hated man in the history of "The Bachelor. " That title now belongs to none other than El Bachelor himself, Mr. Juan Pablo Galavis. It was hard-won, to be sure. Jason set the bar pretty high -- proposing to one girl on the finale only to dump her on national television weeks later and subsequently marry his runner-up? And yet somehow good ol' JuanPabs managed to top Mesnick. Congratulations, sir. From the beginning, I didn't have a good feeling about JuanPabs.

So Juan Pablo's season of “The Bachelor” began last week and slayed in the ratings. The show attracted more viewers than it had in three years, indicating America is pretty into JuanPabs. But guess what, guys? I'm not. Like, if he gave me a rose, I'd probably pull a Sharleen and give him a reluctant “sure?” in reply. Don't get me wrong. The dude is clearly smoking. A stone cold fox. I am considering placing a picture of him on my desk and staring at it lovingly whenever writer's block strikes.

I hope ABC has learned its lesson. You can't just cast a hot dude with an accent to be “The Bachelor” and think it's a done deal. Even we of “Bachelor” nation can only stand for a baseline level of vapidness. Otherwise, we shall revolt. And revolt, we have. I mean, is there literally anyone out there still rooting for Juan Pablo to find love at the end of this season? If so, please raise your hand. Seriously. I want to know you. PHOTOS: Celebrity weddings and engagements of 2014 If it isn't obvious already -- duh, the fantasy suites were a total disaster.

Who watched Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici tie the knot on Sunday night, guys? Oh, right. That was literally just me. Because who else would opt to see two reality stars get married on live television instead of the Grammy Awards? Poor timing, ABC. Anyway, your loss, music lovers, because the wedding was some good stuff. There was a honeymoon suite cam of an empty bedroom. Sean's cute Texan dad officiated. Also, Sean cried a lot, and I felt feelings. I bring this up only because the wedding served as a stark reminder of how terrible Juan Pablo's season of “The Bachelor” is. Sure, I wasn't easy on Sean, either, a few years back -- but at least he brought an interesting point of view to the show.

OK, serious question: Have we ever before reached the hometown date episode of “The Bachelor” without the L-bomb being dropped? Sure, most of Juan Pablo's remaining four ladies heavily debated telling him that they were in love with him after all of two months. But no one actually uttered the three precious words -- save for poor Renee, who told JuanPabs she loved him after he'd given her the ax. More on that later. I bring this up because I feel like the lack of premature mushy declarations this season is really revealing.

When Major League Soccer decided a couple of years ago to allow its teams to circumvent the salary cap if they so desired, it opened up a whole new world. England's David Beckham came to the Galaxy and showed how clubs that choose celebrity over substance don't necessarily prosper. Mexico's Cuauhtemoc Blanco came to Chicago and taught his fellow Fire players the fine art of diving and feigning injury, along with some genuine soccer skills.

Here's an image you might not see every day: “The Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis selling appliances in upstate New York.  But as a favor to a friend, the ABC-TV reality show star does just that in a commercial for Rochester Appliance in Rochester, N.Y. Galavis, an Ithaca-born, Venezuela-raised former professional soccer player, made his reality show debut as a contestant on "The Bachelorette" in 2013. He didn't win then-bachelorette Desiree Hartsock's heart, but he did land a second chance at love on the current season, which premiered in January.

The Galaxy signed Colombian striker Juan Pablo Angel to a multiyear contract Wednesday, gambling that the 35-year-old will be able to accomplish as much as Edson Buddle did in 2010. Buddle scored a team-high 17 goals last season, second-best in Major League Soccer, before leaving to join FC Ingolstadt in Germany. Angel, a former Colombia national team player, is the third forward acquired this month by the Galaxy, which has also added Chad Barrett and Adam Cristman to its front line.

It was a stunning moment when open-wheel racing star Juan Pablo Montoya announced in 2006 that he was moving to NASCAR stock-car racing. Here was a celebrated Colombian who had won the Indianapolis 500 and several races in the international Formula One series. including the Monaco Grand Prix, ready to bang fenders at tracks in Bristol, Tenn., and Darlington, S.C., among other NASCAR stops. "Historic" was the way NASCAR President Mike Helton put Montoya's desire to compete in the most popular form of U.S. motor racing.

ABC and the producers of "The Bachelor" have issued a statement in response to comments made Friday by "Bachelor" star Juan Pablo Galavis . The latter's words were "thoughtless and insensitive" reads the statement, which is attributed to ABC, the show's executive producers and its studio, Warner Horizon Television. The comments from the network come after Galavis indicated that a potential homosexual edition of "The Bachelor" would not be a "good example for kids to watch" on TV. Galavis went so far as to use the word "pervert" in explaining his stance.
