By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/08/2013

Desiree sent Drew, a 27-year-old digital marketing analyst from Scottsdale, AZ, packing at the beginning of their one-on-one date in Antigua, which was only hours after she had offered him a rose at the previous night's Rose Ceremony.  

During a Tuesday conference call with reporters, Drew talked to Reality TV World about his breakup with Desiree. To read what he had to say, click here. Below are some additional highlights from Drew's interview.

Do you think Juan Pablo Galavis will make a good Bachelor even though he seemed a little bit girl crazy last night during After the Final Rose?  Why or why not?

Drew Kenney: You know, I think Juan Pablo is a great guy. I know him really well and I got to know him in the house and, you know, I've talked to him post-show and everything and he's wonderful. And he loves his daughter and he's a family man and he's definitely oriented in that direction.

He is, I firmly believe, that he is thinking about a future and he's thinking about family. So, will he make a good Bachelor in that sense? Yes. Yes, I think that he will take it seriously. I think that he will, you know, look at each one of his possible girlfriends or fiancees with care and handle it with great care. I think that he will take it very seriously. 

We didn't get to spend a lot of time getting to know Juan Pablo, so what's something we ought to know about him that the cameras didn't catch or that you discovered through your friendship with him?

Drew Kenney: He's very genuine, he really is. And he's honest and he's sincere and, you know, the camera got his personality. They got that he's a pretty smooth guy. They got his sense of humor, but what they didn't see was that, you know, behind all that, he actually is a guy that cares a lot.

And I think that the audience will be able to see that during his statements. He does care and ultimately I think he wants what's best for him and his daughter.

Do you have a specific memory in mind or a habit that portrayed this?

Drew Kenney: No, I just remember him talking to his daughter everyday whether it be through Skype or through like text messages or something like that. I just remember him constantly being around producers and asking to be able to talk to his daughter. Yes, he was constantly showing us in the house pictures and telling stories and doing all these things and, you know, it was very clear how important she was to him. 

I was wondering, how hard was it to see Chris and Desiree together at the After the Final Rose special? Was that difficult for you to see them together and engaged and happy or had you already moved on at that point?

Drew Kenney: Well, to be completely honest, I haven't seen the others things that I have seen there onstage. When I walked offstage, I went back to my dressing room and started to change and I had a live-feed straight into what was going on onstage.

But you know, I did get to watch the others, and I did get to see how it ended. And, you know, I'm happy for them. I absolutely look at them and I see, you know, I see the outcome that she should have had. I have nothing but good thoughts and good hopes for them and for their future.

I wanted to ask you, you have such great style. Where does your style come from?

Drew Kenney: Thank you very much. It's myself. I've been working in the fashion industry for awhile and I've been kind of modeling and acting. So, I just [picked up] a few things along the way, and then, you know, just kind of pieced it together.

There wasn't anywhere in particular that I got it from. I just kind of, you know, by being involved in the fashion industry, you kind of see it, and I took great pride in how I look. So, I didn't want to deviate from that at all.

So are you interested in remaining in front of the cameras? And if you were ever asked to be the star of The Bachelor again, would you want to be?

Drew Kenney: Interested in remaining in front of the cameras, I don't know. Right now, it's -- I just want to focus on the relationships in my life and my family and my friends and that kind of stuff.

It's hard being the Bachelor. I think they made a great choice in Juan Pablo.  He's a great guy and, you know, it will be an exciting season to watch, and I'm really pulling for him. I really hope that he finds the girl that he wants and it ends happily and in an engagement.

So last season of The Bachelor, we saw Arie Luyendyk Jr. show up to basically mentor Sean Lowe, to like teach him how to kiss and give him advice.  This season of The Bachelorette, we saw Desiree's girls show up. Would you be interested in appearing in the next season and maybe helping Juan like check out all his contestants and see who's a good fit for him and what not? 

Drew Kenney: Sure. You know, Juan could probably give me pointers to be completely honest. But as far as being involved in the future in the show and all that, you know, it was such a great experience and I've made so many good friends throughout the process that if they called me and asked me if I wanted to be involved in showing up or whatever, you know, I would definitely be [up for it] and paying attention.

I would listen for sure. As far as me giving pointers or anything like that to Juan, he doesn't need it. He will be just fine.
