Can you believe that in just over one month’s time, we’ll be in 2014? Well, ABC is already very well planned for the new year as the network has today announced plans for Juan-uary!

In January, soccer player Juan Pablo Galavis will kick off his search to find love on The Bachelor… as if that wasn’t enough, there will be three hour-long Bachelor specials throughout January!

If you want a little more Juan on your screens, then this may be your lucky New Year as you’ll be getting your fix and more besides.

Kicking off on Sunday, January 5 at 8pm, The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo will air. The special show will give us an insight into Juan Pablo’s life in Miami and we will also meet his four year old daughter, Camila.

The special episode will also give us a behind the scenes look at the casting process for the hit show along with an introduction to a handful of the lucky contestants.
