Juan Pablo Galavis is ABC’s new ‘Bachelor’

NEW YORK – What Juan Pablo Galavis lacked in airtime on “The Bachelorette,” he made up in popularity among viewers.

Now the former pro soccer player will be ABC’s next “Bachelor,” where 25 women begin the show vying for his heart.

The 32-year-old was born in Ithaca, N.Y., but moved to Venezuela when he was 2. He returned to the U.S. to play college soccer and then went pro.
