We must say, it was hard for pretty much anyone to watch Nikki Ferrell sit silently during the Bachelor Season 18 ATFR as Juan Pablo Galavis adamantly refused to reveal anything about his feelings for her. But apparently, it was especially tough for her ex-boyfriend, Ryan McDill, who is being very vocal about his impression of Nikki’s new man.

Missouri-based Ryan whose year-long romance with Nikki ended in July 2013 is indeed not shy about talking to the press. He had previously told a publication that JPG is a “total zero” who will break Nikki’s heart. Now, he’s telling Us Weekly that Nikki seems to have changed since her brush with reality TV stardom.

"Knowing her like I do, I'm surprised Nikki acted like everything was fine during After the Final Rose," Ryan says. "She normally wouldn't take that st from a guy.” He then adds, “The Nikki I know would have slapped him and walked out."

OK, so what does Ryan’s comment tell us? Well, first of all, it tells us that Ryan probably got slapped while he was dating Nikki. (That’s the take-home message that you got from his comments, right?) Second of all, we’re getting the sense that Ryan probably wasn’t the one who ended their relationship. Call it a hunch.

And while Ryan might think he’s looking out for his former flame’s best interests, we kinda think it might be time for him to let Nikki live her life and just cross his fingers for her. Nikki is an adult, so if she feels that her relationship with El Bachelor is going the way it should, then her loved ones need to be happy for her.

That said, Ryan is pretty easy on the eyes. So, does anyone besides us suddenly have the urge to cast a vote for him as the 2015 Bachelor? He might know a girl who could help him out...

Do you think Ryan should keep his thoughts to himself? Or is it sweet that he’s still concerned for her?
