If Nikki Ferrell doesn’t watch The Bachelorette when it premieres next week, it may be because she doesn’t want to watch her ex-boyfriend. On Tuesday, the Kansas City Star reported that two of the 25 men viewers will see vying for Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe are from Kansas City, with one of them being Nikki’s ex-boyfriend.
The man in question is Ryan McDill. His official ABC bio describes him as a tall 28-year-old Junkyard Specialist whose biggest date fear is the person being terrible. He considers himself a romantic and believes that being married means “having your other half completing your life and bringing new life into the world.” In response to which superhero he would be if he had the choice, Ryan said that he would be Wolverine because he is “awesome-looking, ripped, has attitude, and doesn’t take any crap.”
Ryan apparently makes his presence known early on in the process. According to the Kansas City Star, an ABC press release said that Ryan “gets himself in a world of trouble, acting so inappropriately that (host) Chris Harrison finally has to step in and take matters into his own hands.”
In an interview with Life & Style in March 2014, Ryan McDill, who dated Nikki Ferrell before she went on The Bachelor and got into a relationship with Juan Pablo Galavis, said that he wanted her back and that it was a mistake to break up. The two broke up in July 2013, and about three months later, she went on the reality show.
“I could see the two of us working out long-term. I could see having a family with her. After we broke up, there were times where I would say, ‘I don’t know if that was the right decision.’ But really I didn’t have a whole lot of time [before she went on the show]. I didn’t watch every single episode just because it was too hard. Basically, she is the one who got away.”
Nikki Ferrell may be feeling the same about watching Ryan on The Bachelorette. Perhaps not wanting to deal with the media reporting on her thoughts on her ex’s shenanigans on the show once it premieres next Monday, Nikki recently deleted her Twitter account. Either unaware that Nikki had taken down her Twitter account or posted before she deleted it, Nikki’s good friend Andi Dorfman, who competed for Juan Pablo Galavis with Nikki and then became the star of The Bachelorette, sent Nikki a tweet early Monday morning.
Season 11 of The Bachelorette premieres on Monday, May 18. In a twist, on night one, the 25 men will cast votes on whether they want Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe to stay as the Bachelorette for the rest of the season. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, host Chris Harrison recently shared a funny photo that he took with Britt and Kaitlyn while filming the season.
