We’ve all had some squirmish moments in our dating lives we’d love to forget, but ‘The Bachelor’ finale post-show might have just topped them all, causing a social media frenzy toward one Juan Pablo Galavis.
Bachelor Juan Pablo chose Nikki Ferrell in the finale, but opted not to propose in the finale like similar Bachelors before him (social media might have rebelled against the bachelor, but viewers didn’t: 11 million tuned into the “After The Final Rose” post- show).
Host Chris Harrison started the segment by asking Juan Pablo what the surprise is he told producers he was ready to reveal. “I have a big surprise?” a bemused Juan Pablo said. “I don’t.”
Harrison then asked Juan Pablo several times whether he was in love with Nikki, with the Venezuelan resisting answering several times. “I don’t know what I’m looking at,” Harrison said, highlighting it isn’t clear how Juan Pablo feels about Nikki.
“I would like to say you guys are in love, but it’s so awkward, because we can’t have a conversation,” Harrison continued.
Social media was definitely conversating: with women expressing their ire toward #JuanPablo, and their male partners thanking him for making them look so good.
Nikki is looking for Juan Pablo to say “I Love You.” She’d have better luck looking for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. #TheBachelor
