Fan favorite Juan Pablo Galavis is the latest "Bachelor" to steal hearts on the hit ABC show, and ET caught up with the soccer-playing stud as he posed shirtless to promote the highly anticipated new season premiering tonight!

So why did Juan Pablo decide to give finding love on reality television a second chance after getting eliminated by Desiree Hartsock on "The Bachelorette"?

"The Bachelor" scorecard: Did the relationships sizzle or fizzle?

"It was a tough decision," he said. "But I'm in a good position now. I've got 25 girls just for me, and I'm gonna pick the one I think is the best one for me, and hopefully, you know, create a great relationship with somebody, have a house, more kids -- two more -- and a stepmom for [my daughter] Camila. It's not that Camila needs a stepmom, but I need somebody to be with me ... "

As for what he's looking for in the perfect girl, Juan Pablo claims he only needs them to be "honest," but he's far more vocal about his number one turnoff -- someone who can't dance!

"No dancing is so horrible," he laughs. "But we'll see, maybe there's an exception around here."
