Contestants go on reality love shows like “The Bachelor” to find romance and perhaps a lasting relationship. However, many of them don’t work out. In the case of Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell, the couple did not work out. Finally, Nikki is coming forward to reveal why the two were not meant to be.
Ferrell and Galavis were a controversial couple and even Chris Harrison saying the “After the Rose” ceremony was “odd” and “unsatisfying.” Fans of the show were shocked when Juan Pablo would not tell Nikki that he loved her. On Monday night, the couple reunited during “The Bachelor” season 19 premiere event and Ferrell discussed her relationship with Galavis.
Apparently Juan Pablo did say “I love you” to her at some point. Unfortunately, Nikki said that it was probably too late. She explained,
“I think at that point I had come to the conclusion that we were different people and we were never going to be on the same page.”
“The Bachelor” contestant said that she and Galavis really did try to make it work. The couple even went on VH1’s “Couples Therapy” in an attempt to fix their relationship. Even though the two are not together anymore, Ferrell insists that Juan Pablo is a good person and caring. She said that their lifestyles were just too different and the distance ended up being too much.
Does Nikki regret her time with Juan Pablo? The reality star says she doesn’t, but she is really happy right now and doing great.
