PASADENA, Calif. -- Juan Pablo Galavis seems a charmingBacheloron ABC's reality show, but he made some ugly remarks here Friday in discussing the show.

Asked by websiteTheTVPage.comwhether ABC should air a season with a gay or bisexual Bachelor, he said, "I don't think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV," calling homosexuals "more pervert(ed) in a sense."

Though he voiced respect for his own gay producer, he said same-sex couples with kids are "confusing in a sense. ... Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody's desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV."

The comments come a month afterDuck Dynasty's Phil Robertson made anti-gay comments in aGQinterview, was promptly "suspended indefinitely" by A&E, only to be reinstated after a pro-Robertson backlash. The show returned last week with ratings similar to last winter's start but down sharply from its most recent (and record-setting) premiere last August.

ABC had no immediate comment.
