“Bachelorette” Andi Dorfman is in engagement bliss right now. The 26-year-old Atlanta prosecutor is now out in the open with her fiancé, Josh Murray, and excited about the next step in their relationship – marriage! But that leaves the big question: Will her ex-boyfriend, former “The Bachelor” star Juan Pablo Galavis, be invited?
According to Andi, the answer is a “soft no.”
In a post-finale press call, the former bachelorette told reporters that she doesn’t think Juan Pablo, the 32-year-old former soccer stud and single dad, will be invited to her wedding to Josh. But she did acknowledge that he might get an invite on one condition.
“Going to be a soft no for now, unless he marries Nikki [Ferrell],” Andi revealed. “Then by default, which he knows about, he’ll come to the wedding.”
While Juan Pablo could potentially have an invite to the reality star’s wedding, it did come with a price – Andi’s use of the word “default” was a dig at her “Fantasy Suite nightmare” during her time on “The Bachelor.” Viewers will remember that Juan Pablo allegedly told Andi that she was in St. Lucia in the final three “by default.” The phrase was said to be used during their overnight date, the one time cameras weren’t filming the couple. Andi confronted Juan Pablo about the hurtful words, but he claimed that he never said “by default” because that phrase was not in his limited English vocabulary. Instead, “The Bachelor” star suggested that he may have said “you barely made it here.”
The tension between Andi Dorfman and Juan Pablo Galavis might still be high, but it appears she’s still close with the winner of Juan Pablo’s heart – Nikki Ferrell. The pair became good friends while filming “The Bachelor.” Fans will remember that Nikki beat out Clare Crawley for the final rose – but Juan Pablo chose not to get down on one knee and propose. Their “After the Final Rose” special took a bizarre twist when Juan Pablo refused to tell host Chris Harrison that he loved Nikki, and said he wanted to keep information on their relationship private.
Nikki and Juan Pablo showed their support for Andi during the season finale of “The Bachelorette.” Juan Pablo tweeted his best wishes, while Nikki tweeted her hopes pre-show: “I selfishly want @AndiDorfman to choose Josh only because his bro plays for the @KCChiefs and I’d see her more. #Tailgate #TeamJosh.” Nikki got her wish when Josh proposed to Andi during the season finale of “The Bachelorette” and accepted the final rose.
“If he marries Nikki, he gets an invite,” Andi continued during the press call. “I hope he hears this. He better put a ring on it.”
It sounds like the pressure is on for Juan Pablo. Fortunately he has a little bit of time. Andi and Josh told reporters that they want to enjoy their engagement before planning a spring 2015 wedding.
