“The Bachelor” took viewers on a very interesting ride in Season 18. From the tears, to the breakups to the lack of proposal, fans of the ABC dating series were left scratching their heads after the finale. And since Juan Pablo and Nikki’s bizarre interview with Chris Harrison during the “After The Final Rose” special, there are a lot of rumors and speculation regarding their relationship.
So, what is one of the big rumors going around? Some are claiming that Juan Pablo and Nikki’s relationship is already over.
“Bachelor” fans will remember that despite Nikki declaring her love for the 32-year-old single dad, Juan Pablo could only reply that he likes her “a lot.” Chris Harrison questioned Juan Pablo about his feelings for the 26-year-old pediatric nurse a couple months after the final rose ceremony was filmed, but the bachelor star still refused to say those three words, instead just saying that she’s fantastic and that they are happy.
Life & Style magazine claims that the pair have already split. But the social media accounts for Juan Pablo and Nikki tell a different story.
Immediately after their appearance during “The Bachelor” special, Juan Pablo posted a selfie on Instagram with Nikki. “We are FREE,” he captioned the photo, which shows the pair with wide smiles on their faces. But unfortunately the public scrutiny seems to be taking a toll on them.
“Being in the public eye does NOT give you the right to say what you want to me,” Nikki tweeted the following day. “Your words hurt no matter what. Be ashamed of yourselves.”
Supporting his lady love, Juan Pablo posted an encouraging message and a sweet video to show his followers how he really feels about Nikki.
“Amor @Nikki_Ferrell, glad that we stay TRUE to ourselves and we are REAL … This is for YOU …,” wrote Juan Pablo about the video.
The video, titled “Adventures In Loving You,” kicks off with a message for the viewer: “This is a RECAP of Mi Aventura … Thanks to Obie Bermudez for using the words I sent him and TURNING them into a SONG … ‘Adventures In Loving You’ is for you Mi Catira …” (For those unfamiliar with the phrase Mi Catira, it means “my blonde.”)
After Juan Pablo’s message, “The Bachelor” star compiled photos and video clips to accompany Obie Bermudez’ song. But it’s not just all photos and videos that fans of the show have seen before; Juan Pablo also used behind-the-scenes videos and photos of them from their time while filming “The Bachelor,” as well as the months following the “Final Rose” ceremony. Viewers can see the two love birds cooking together, video chatting, and even lounging around the bedroom. But the sweetest part of the video comes at the end, where Juan Pablo included a message for his beloved.
“Thanks for the INTERESTING 4 months of HIDING, now that the CHARACTER of ‘The Bachelor’ is OVER, it is time for US to live our life for REAL. Te ADORO.”
