As word spreads that The Bachelor stars Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell split, apparently, word has it that Nikki’s best buddy from the show might be feeling relieved. Andi Dorfman and Nikki grew close during their battle for Galavis’ heart, despite Dorfman’s dramatic exit. Now word has it that Andi is already thinking about playing matchmaker for Nikki.
Hollywood Life reveals that Andi is “so relieved” that Juan Pablo and Nikki split. The Bachelorette star and her fiance, Josh Murray, had recently revealed that while Ferrell was welcome to attend their wedding, and may even be a bridesmaid, Galavis wouldn’t be getting an invite. Though some may have pondered whether that was going to lead to a tense or difficult situation, word of the split answers that question.
Dorfman is said to be such a supporter of Ferrell’s The Bachelor split that she’s supposedly already thinking of options for which guy she can set Nikki up with at the big event. As fans of the show know, Andi isn’t a fan of Juan Pablo’s even a year after filming, and sources say that Dorfman never thought he was good enough for her bestie.
Neither Juan Pablo nor Nikki have directly confirmed their The Bachelor split as of yet. However, they are no longer following one another on social media and Us Weekly says they have sources who confirmed that Ferrell broke things off with Galavis. The confirmation comes just hours after social media posts by both Juan Pablo and Nikki that led fans to believe they had called it quits on their relationship despite appearing on Couples Therapy.
Andi and Josh have said that there will be other guys from their season of The Bachelorette at the wedding, as Murray has become close friends with many of them. While the wedding date hasn’t been pinned down yet, it sounds as if Dorfman has perhaps added another line to her to-do list: find a new guy for Ferrell. Are there any guys from Andi’s season that could be a good match for Nikki?
Naturally, a few of the potential candidates from Andi and Josh’s season are currently off-limits even if Nikki were to take The Bachelorette up on her matchmaking plan. Cody Sattler is still with Michelle Money after Bachelor in Paradise, and Marcus Grodd is still with Lacy Faddoul. Chris Soules, of course, is The Bachelor 2015, and it seems pretty clear that Nick Viall shouldn’t be expecting a wedding invitation.
Given Nikki’s distaste for the attention that came from being on The Bachelor, it may well be that she’ll avoid further romances from within the franchise, unlike many other contestants. Ditto would likely be the case regarding a possible spot for Bachelor in Paradise Season 2. While some might find it amusing to watch her look for love again in that format, it seems pretty unlikely either she or Juan Pablo would give it a go.
While none of the parties involved have definitively commented on the supposed The Bachelor split via social media, it does seem to be pretty clear that the Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis breakup happened recently. Will Nikki give Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray an opportunity to help her find love again?
