They say going through a traumatic event together can lead two people to form a lifelong bond. On a different and totally unrelated note…some of the strongest celebrity friendships we’ve seen are those formed by members of Bachelor Nation while filming The Bachelor and Bachelorette. For whatever reason — hours spent between dates with no access to the outside world maybe? — despite vying for the affections of the same love interest, the contestants on these shows often form stronger relationships with each other than with the lead.

So who’s the current Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s bestie from her time on Juan Pablo Galavis’s season? None other than his winner, and girlfriend, Nikki Ferrell. Andi recently tweeted a photo of herself and Nikki filming a scene for The Bachelor with the caption “#tbt morning after our first rose ceremony ever. Loved her then and love her now!”

The two became fast friends while both trying to woo JPG, and they’re still friends to this day, with Nikki taking to Twitter to wish Andi well on her season of The Bachelorette and then again to defend the Dorf when fans seemed to turn on her a bit.

It’s a relationship that has come under fire at times, with Twitter users questioning how the two can hang given how they met. Um, Andi excused herself from the show y’all, realizing Juan Pabs was much more Nikki’s speed than hers. Not a cat claw in sight between the two.  

Andi doesn’t seem to be worried about the haters though, and why should she be? Her BFF Nikki is happy with JPG, and Andi’s about to head off to the Dominican Republic with three amazing men. Seems like everything ended pretty great for the gal pals.

What do you think of Andi and Nikki’s friendship? Weird or why not?
