Juan Pablo Galavis made quite a showing on the Bachelor 2014 finale on March 10 of not showing feelings for Nikki Ferrell. He repeatedly shut down Chris Harrison’s request that he tell her he loves her, tell us he’s in love with her… basically, to say anything at all. Still, Juan Pablo insisted that his feelings for his Season 18 lady were private, between them. So, we were a little shocked when he tweeted a video for Nix on Tuesday evening, sort of declaring his love.
“Amor @Nikki_Ferrell, glad that we stay TRUE to ourselves and we are REAL… This is for YOU…” he wrote, with a YouTube video titled “ADVENTURES IN LOVING YOU” attached. On his YouTube channel, he captioned the vid, “Thanks for these 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 Juan Pablo.”
The video opens with a statement about what it is, with text reading “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…” What follows is a song set to pictures and video chronicling their time together on the show, studded with Instagram and Twitter pics, both from The Bachelor and after.
Video of Juan Pablo lip syncing the song to Nikki patches in at some points, while still other video seems like it’s taken from Skype dates during their time in hiding. In one shot, Nikki and Juan Pabs Facetime with a family member, and in several clips, she is seen studying, sleeping beside Juan Pablo, or all garbed up in her nurse scrubs.
Honestly, we didn’t know we’d be saying this, but it’s one of the cuter videos we’ve seen on the Interwebs! It seems to show them really connecting during their time away from the show, which helps assuage our fears about whether she’s getting the love she deserves. Their showing at “After the Final Rose” was awkward at best, and earned them many an Internet troll, all quick with the 140 characters and sharp tongues. Nikki took to Twitter earlier today to call out haters for their mean comments, saying they should “be ashamed” for their hurtful words.
We’re sorry, Nikki. We love you and only want you to find happiness, whether it’s with Juan Pablo, or with our brother who you’d be totally perfect for if you want his number… just let us know! OK and say hi to Juan Pablo for us. Bye!
Check out the video below and then let us know in the comments what you think about their “aventura,” put to song!
