Transcript for Juan Pablo on Controversy: 'It Was A Misuse of A Word'
Now to the man starring Monday nights at ABC. Juan Pablo "The bachelor." Here with a sneak peek. I've been thinking a lot. I was worried about the rose ceremony that day that you were all sad. You felt horrible. I didn't want you to feel that way. My question is, what are our boundaries? You caught me offguard. Did we do anything inappropriate though? And Juan Pablo here, don't leave us hanging, did you? We talk. We talk. You'll see that tonight. We'll see a lot more tonight. Before we get to that, because these episodes taped a long time ago. Viewers have not been caught up on the controversy you got involved in a few weeks back. You were asked if there should be a gay bachelor, you were dismissed. Said a bad example. Used the word pervert. You have since apologized. What was going on in your head. It was a misuse of the word in English. It's been hard, because, to me, when I speak English, it happened to be two months of filming. Sometimes the words I used were not used in the way I should. I use the wrong word. I'm go on pi phone, Google, find the right word, do it that way. I talked to glad. We made sense between each other. Understood each other. I have family, friends, I have a cousin who is gay, his sister is a nun. It's been around my house all my life. To me, it was a misunderstanding. Did the backlash surprise you? What have you learned from it? People need to worry about their life's and my life. It's about respect. I respect everybody, doesn't matter the color of their skin. Their religion.
