Everyone's Crying on 'The Bachelor' … Even Juan Pablo!
Things are getting serious on "The Bachelor" — the tears are flowing, even from Juan Pablo himself!
We saw two sides to the guy this week. One was the big softy who can hardly bear to eliminate any of the women and breaks down crying. And the other was kind of a jerk, who blamed Clare for a decision he was fully part of.
After their group date — in which he once again made out with a girl in front of the other ladies — Clare snuck by his hotel suite for a quick dip in the ocean. But later, Juan Pablo starts to regret going along, because he wants to be "fair" to the other women and be a good example for his daughter. Well, dude, it's not fair for you to pin the incident on Clare. She may have been the one to suggest the sexy rendezvous — but you, sir, agreed to it!
Juan Pablos worried about his daughter. But...that's on him, right? She's not some evil temptress! (I mean, she is, but...) #Bachelor— Jennifer Weiner (@jenniferweiner) February 4, 2014
Juan Pablo finally owns his share of the blame but makes Clare cry in the process. So not cool.
Here's a rundown of the rest of the episode:
One-on-One With Renee
Finally, single mom/group therapist Renee gets a date. Juan Pablo takes her shopping for a new dress as well as presents for their kids … awww! That melts Renee's heart (and maybe explodes her ovaries) and makes her really, really want a kiss from Juan Pablo.
But it's just not happening. At dinner, he learns more about her son's father and they have a nice heart-to-heart as single parents. "There could be something here," Juan Pablo says.
That something, however, is not a kiss! Still, he gives Renee a rose, so hey, that's something.
Group Date: Sharleen, Chelsie, Kat, Cassandra, Clare, Kelly, Alli, Danielle, and Andi
Juan Pablo takes the nine ladies on a river boating excursion, and Clare discovers the benefit of being the least liked girl in the house — she gets to share a raft with Juan Pablo!

They fall behind the other boats, and Juan Pablo uses the opportunity to start kissing her. Yeah, the other women are further along the river, but they can totally see what's happening!
So he wont make out with Renee bc he's respectful but it's totally ok to kiss 1 girl in front of all the others on a group date? #Bachelor— Ashley S. (@AshleySpivey) February 4, 2014
The group stops off at a "random" Vietnamese family's house for a big homemade meal, which they all pick the ingredients for in the family's farm. Depressed that she hasn't gotten a date, Andi uses the chance to bring up her frustrations with Juan Pablo, who does his best to comfort and encourage her.
Later, in the evening portion of the date, Juan Pablo takes Clare aside first for some alone time, which just angers the other women even more. He takes her to his hotel suite to swim in the pool and they make out some more. Clearly, they have chemistry.
He also spends time with Sharleen, who is feeling uncertain again after their date in Korea last week. She wants him to make her feel special, so Juan tells her she's cute and they make out. Why do we feel like Sharleen is ready to bail on this at any moment?
