Chris Harrison is ready to move on from Juan Pablo Galavis's controversial season of The Bachelor – and the feeling is mutual.

"We're done with the show. We are so done," Juan Pablo told the host during the live After the Final Rose special, which aired Monday night after he broke up with finalist Clare Crawley and offered the final rose to Nikki Ferrell but did not propose in a shocking finale episode.

Harrison and the studio audience seemed perplexed as to why Nikki could say she was happy and "absolutely" still in love, though she hadn't heard Juan Pablo say he's in love with her.

This week, The Bachelor fans can expect double the episodes and more than double the drama, according to host Chris Harrison, who spoke with PEOPLE Wednesday.

Juan Pablo met the families of the four remaining ladies on Monday night's hometown dates edition. Then on Tuesday, the final three travel to St. Lucia for the exotic overnight dates.

Harrison wouldn't describe either experience as "smooth sailing" for our lover with a language barrier.

Juan Pablo's Bachelor Blog: I Made a Mistake with Clare in Vietnam

Originally posted 02/04/2014 10:40AM

Juan Pablo Galavis, former pro soccer player, single father and star of this season's The Bachelor, is blogging for PEOPLE.com each week about the ladies, the dates and the difficult decisions he faces. You can also follow Juan on Twitter @JuanPaGalavis.

I have to admit, things are getting real on The Bachelor.

Vietnam, a wonderful country that I never thought I would visit.

I definitely wanted to take Renee on my first one-on-one date. Back in L.A., when I first saw her in the mansion, Renee was standing in the back of the living room. She wasn't trying to grab my attention, she was just being herself and I felt that she was exactly like me when I was on The Bachelorette. I knew she came to see if I was the man of her life.

Renee (along with Cassandra) is one of my special ones because she is a mom. I definitely didn't want to waste her time because she was away from her son, Ben. My first date in Vietnam was exploring the city of Hoi An and I thought it was the perfect chance to see if something was between us.

Chris Harrison Took His 'Hands Off the Wheel' this Season

As suspected, Brooks was just not that into The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock and thus her frontrunner for a fairy tale ending excused himself from the tournament of roses. He left her a weeping pile of emotion on an Antigua pier and left producers and viewers alike wondering if the show would go on.

"The first thing I said when I walked out after [my conversation with] Brooks was, 'We might be done.' We were in the home stretch trying to set up a happy ending and magic proposal. This was a curveball," host Chris Harrison said during a press call Thursday.

It's not everyday you have all your ex-boyfriends in one room ready to put you on the spot, but that is exactly what I had to deal with on Men Tell All.

I was anxious, nervous and also excited to see all the men I had sent home. It was an emotional journey and I have nothing but fond memories – of most of them.

After a beautiful week in Madeira, I was excited to meet the families of the four guys left on The Bachelorette. This week would be pivotal in helping me discern my feelings for each guy. It felt so refreshing to be back in the States, and I couldn't wait to see what the men had in store.

Zak always has a surprise for me – I love that about him – so I had no idea what to expect for our date. I knew that his family business was in sno-cones but I did not expect to make them for a classroom of kindergarteners. It was so much fun trying all the unique flavors and it brought me back to my childhood. Zak was amazing with all the children and that showed the kind of father he would be – funny yet caring.

After such an emotional and dramatic week in Spain, I was looking forward to a new, refreshing week in Madeira, Portugal, an island I knew little about. And what a wonderful place to start fresh! The scenery was out of this world and it truly lifted my spirits. It has it all – the ocean, the mountains, lushness, cobblestone streets and, of course, five guys that I was crazy about.

I really tried to keep each relationship separate throughout this journey on The Bachelorette, but starting this week, I compared the relationships so I could find out whose family I needed to meet.

I've always wanted to see Spain and now that I've been there on The Bachelorette, it's one of my favorite places on earth! The city of Barcelona, the people, art and culture are so inspiring. What a wonderful place to start fresh after such an awkward week in Germany. That is, until I was placed in a compromising position and had to deal with more emotions and drama from the men.

I wanted to explore the city and continue my connection with Drew. In a group setting, he tends to be more reserved and I wanted to see his fun, playful side on our date. Although that side didn't shine through, a different and powerful one did.
