The girls on The Bachelor 2014 with Juan Pablo Galavis will do anything to get a rose from the handsome 32-year-old single-dad. But will their strip-down, paint up antics last another day — specifically, Episode 3 of this fair season? We’re guessing yes, from what we know so far.

On his own Season 9 of The Bachelorette, JPG was eliminated after a battle of the sexes soccer match in Barcelona turned out not to turn Des on — at least, for his ball skills. So, why sic that on the girls this week, when he takes 10 of the remaining 15 to play soccer at StubHub Center in Carson, California (home of the L.A. Galaxy)? Cuz he’s a soccer player, duh.

According to the episode synopsis, he “demonstrates some of his signature moves,” but it’s not with the ladies. And though the competition is fierce, both for solo time with El Bachelor and for the group date rose, Reality Steve says that it’s Nikki Ferrell who wins the coveted flower.

The other ladies vying for the prize? Andi DorfmanRenee OteriChristy HansenKelly Travis (who won the group date rose on Week 2), Lauren SolomonAlli RestkoLucy AragonDanielle Ronco, and Sharleen Joynt, who we can’t wait to see do something non-elegant.

Why does Nikki get the GDR? Well, if the Episode 3 promo is any indication, it’s likely because she spends some quality time getting to know the real man with the soccer tan. Or, it could just be because she looks beautiful, even after running around on a field… We hear that helps.

Are you surprised Nikki gets the GDR? Tell us why or why not below! Want more spoilers? We’ve got you covered.
