For those unfamiliar with Juan Pablo, 32, he was a contestant on Desiree Hartsock’s “The Bachelorette” during summer 2013. Not racking up too much screen time and failing to win Desiree’s heart, Juan Pablo did succeed in driving “Bachelorette” viewers completely wild … which resulted in him becoming the next “Bachelor.” Born in New York, Juan Pablo grew up in Venezuela, where he developed a dreamy accent. Playing professional soccer overseas, he ultimately ended up moving to Miami when he found out that his girlfriend, Carla, was pregnant. Juan Pablo became a father on Feb. 13, 2009, when his daughter, Camilla, was born.

With Camilla now 4 years old, Juan Pablo’s ideal woman must love his daughter … and be a good dancer.

“I am confident I will definitely find my future wife and stepmom for Camilla,” Juan Pablo said of his role as the new “Bachelor.” “And I’m ready for it.”

“The Bachelor” premieres on ABC on Jan. 6 at 8 p.m., but fans can watch a “Bachelor” special, “Countdown to Juan Pablo” on Jan. 5 at 8 p.m.
