Screen shot 2014-03-15 at 10.55.18 AMJuan Pablo Galavis opened up about the shocking “Bachelor” finale and his relationship with Nikki Ferrell in his final People blog on Saturday.

The former soccer player says he thought the show was “so cheesy,” but decided to be “The Bachelor” after he had a good time on “The Bachelorette.”

Juan Pablo goes on to defend himself for upsetting Andi Dorfman and Clare Crawley on the show, saying, “I believe my direct approach and honesty unfortunately ended up hurting some of the women and that was never my intention.”

He says he thinks he was actually “too honest for this reality show.”

Juan Pablo continues, “The end result is not what anyone expected or wanted, because the show has the proposal as the perfect ending. As you saw on Monday night, what is real and the respect for a mother is more important to me than making a perfect TV show. I did what I wanted and thought it was better for me and my family.”

The reality star admits that “some people don’t like me, hate me and wish me the worst,” but reveals he’s “truly happy” with his decision.

“I cannot wait to go to the movies, eat McDonald’s, take Camila for a swim, go to Disney, baseball games, concerts and being able to give mi catira [my blondie] all the love without hiding from everyone,” adds Juan Pablo.

He shares, “At the end of the day, all I want to be is happy and I found what I signed up for: I found mi catira. She’s the woman from ‘After the Final Rose’ that you saw as my girlfriend. Nikki has been that way to me for a few months already.”

Juan Pablo concludes, “I will always be thankful for the opportunity, but if you asked me to do it again, I would definitely say, ‘HELLLLL NOOOOO.'”

UPDATE: Juan Pablo has taken to Twitter to criticize producers for allegedly editing out some things from his piece. See tweets below.
