But at the end of the day, it was a neat opportunity to do challenges, make new friends and possibly meet a girl. The fun aspect is really high.
The money is also quite a draw. Even though it is a long shot, it sure beats your chances if you re sitting at home. You said that if you had a choice between finding love or winning the money, you d take the cash. I was being playful. In reality, if I had found the love of my life, mother of my children, I would forgo the money. You can t put a price tag on that. But I knew I had a better chance of winning the money than finding the one out of 11 girls.
The reason you were eliminated is because of your history with Nikki. Viewers only got part of the story and it made you seem like a jerk.
What s your side? Nikki tends to embellish and exaggerate and she uses the terms relationship and dating differently than I do … We had been corresponding online and she seemed like a sweet girl.
She invited me to Chicago. I had never been and was eager to visit. We had a wonderful weekend together. She was a wonderful host. Everything went as normally and naturally as you can imagine and then I came back to L.
We kept in touch but at no time did we ever talk about pursuing it. I took it for what it was and she obviously took it for something more. The next time I saw her was six weeks later on the reunion cruise.
Before we boarded, I said I wasn t interested in continuing our relationship and that it would be best to be friends. She didn t take that very well and that s where the animosity started. Obviously, that played a part in your elimination. Do you think you will have some explaining to do on the real dating scene?
When it comes to my real dating life, it has no impact. Anyone who takes two minutes to hear the story gets a clear picture on the situation. Now, do online choose team Juan or team Nikki and like to talk trash? I learned long ago to tune it out. Who would you like to win? I guess I d give it to Kiptyn.
