Los Angeles -- ABC's "Bachelor" Juan Pablo Galavis says he did not intend to slur homosexuals by saying they are "more pervert," CNN reports.

The Venezuelan former soccer star blames his lack of English vocabulary for the misunderstanding when he was trying to explain why a gay or bisexual man should not be cast as a bachelor on the reality competition.



Galavis, in an apology posted on his Facebook page Saturday, said he meant to say that gay and bisexuals are too "affectionate and intense" for television.
