Bachelor Nation fans may recognize a familiar face on American Idol this season — Juan Pablo Galavis will be back on ABC to support his daughter, Camila Galavis.

During a commercial for season 22 of American Idol, Camila explained to judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie that her father was the lead of season 18 of The Bachelor. “He’s dreamy,” Bryan joked.

In the clip, Juan Pablo proceeded to greet the judges, and was asked by Perry whether he was currently single. While watching his daughter sing, he got emotional.

Juan Pablo first appeared on Desiree Hartsock’s season of The Bachelorette in 2013. While he was a fan favorite on Des’ season, during his own season, which aired in 2014, things took a turn. Juan Pablo infamously got into a fight with contestant Andi Dorfman, who quit the show when he kept insisting things were “OK” between the two despite her concerns that he wasn’t trying to get to know her. He ultimately gave his final rose to Nikki Ferrell (after a messy final rose ceremony with runner-up Clare Crawley), but the pair split in October 2014.

He later moved on with Osmariel Villalobos, whom he wed in 2017. After two years of marriage, Juan Pablo confirmed via Instagram that the twosome had called it quits.

Aside from handing out roses on the hit ABC reality dating series in 2014, Juan Pablo has also dabbled in the music industry in the past. He previously worked with recording artist Daniel Morales, helping with the 2016 track “Me Rehúso.”

What Has Juan Pablo Said About His Relationship With His Daughter Camila?

Juan Pablo and Camila appear to have a strong bond. In June 2021, he and Camila recreated the viral moment when he blindsided Clare during the finale of his season of The Bachelor.

In the TikTok video, Camila mouthed the words Crawley said to Juan Pablo after their split, saying, “I lost respect for you because I’ll tell you what, I thought I knew what kind of man you were. What you just made me go through, I would never want my children having a father like you.”

After the breakup, Juan Pablo said, “Woah, I’m glad that I didn’t pick her.”
