Are Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell moving from “The Bachelor” to WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp”? The new couple made it clear to Chris Harrison on “The Bachelor: After The Final Rose” special that they want to keep their relationship “private,” yet the reality TV star duo sat down with WEtv stars Jim and Elizabeth Carroll.

According to Us Weekly, Juan Pablo and Nikki’s relationship is already in jeopardy … so they turned to the “Marriage Boot Camp” counselors. But that doesn’t mean that “The Bachelor” couple will be appearing on the show … yet. Jim and Elizabeth Carroll revealed to the magazine that the pair simply sought out their help for relationship advice.

“I think they have marriage on their minds, but I think what Juan did was a really, I mean it wasn’t a very romantic fairytale ending, but I think what he did was very wise in the fact that he said you know, ‘I want to go through conflicts with this girl. I want to do some problem solving, I want to see basically what the ugly side is before I jump out there and tell somebody I love them and just get married,” Jim told Us Weekly.

Elizabeth added Juan Pablo is not “commitment phobic,” and that the 32-year-old dad seems “very serious about commitment.” However Jim does see some potential trouble on the horizon for “The Bachelor” couple. Jim continued that they have different personalities, and that Juan Pablo’s “strong” personality may run over Nikki if she “doesn’t have good boundaries.”

Elizabeth took to Twitter to post about their meeting. “Lunch with @JuanPaGalavis @Nikki_Ferrell @JimMBC LOVELY COUPLE terrible to be misunderstood criticized publicly,” she tweeted along with a photo on March 19. “You should have seen how @JuanPaGalavis and @Nikki_Ferrell treated a 6 year old autograph seeker, with a kiss! #likeaprincess.”

Juan Pablo and Nikki’s counseling with the Carrolls comes a couple days after the pair attended a wedding together in the Dominican Republic. The couple posted photos of their romantic weekend, with Juan Pablo’s Instagram photo even suggesting that Nikki may have caught the bride’s bouquet. Sources told E! News that the duo looked “very happy together” and that “they were enjoying themselves.”
