There has been a lot of speculation lately that The Bachelor stars Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have split. They went about five weeks during which they were seemingly apart with no social media posts of them together, virtually no social media interaction and rumors swirling. This past weekend, they were at a charity event together, though, and they say that all is well.
Juan Pablo and Nikki talked with People and said, "We're doing great!" Though Galavis and Ferrell still live in different states, she has been in Florida for the past week or so, and the two have been sharing some photos on social media again.
Nikki says, "We are very happy together." She adds that Juan Pablo is better at ignoring the negative buzz than she is, and she admits that at times her feelings do get hurt. Ultimately, though, she says, "But really, we are happy and doing well."
The Bachelor couple spent some time over the weekend at the Hearts of Reality charity event to raise money for Give Kids the World. It is an organization that works to grant wishes for children dealing with life-threatening illnesses. As fans of the show know, Ferrell is a pediatric nurse, and the couple has done other child-related charity events together since their finale aired as well.
In addition to doing the charity event, Nikki has been spending time with Juan Pablo and his daughter Camila. Galavis posted a photo on Instagram showing the trio playing around with makeup, and she had posted a picture of Juan Pablo and his daughter playing in the pool before that. The two have definitely made the most of their time together during this trip as they've posted photos from Gatorland and other aspects of the charity event as well.
What comes next for Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell? It has been leaked that they filmed Couples Therapy for VH1 alongside other familiar faces such as "Evel Dick" Donato from Big Brother, adult film star Jenna Jameson and Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese. That new season premieres on VH1 on Wednesday, Sept. 10, though neither Juan Pablo or Nikki have confirmed or referenced their participation at all.
Will fans believe all is well between these two or do they seem likely to be moving toward a split? Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have been together since filming the finale last November, and at least for now, they are telling fans that all is well. It seems fairly easy to imagine that there will be no televised ABC wedding for them, given how things went during their "After the Final Rose" special.
Interestingly, it seems that Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are moving toward marriage, but it also probably won't be televised. Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray are engaged and talking about a spring wedding, and there is already buzz that ABC will be interested in theirs.
Now that Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are married too, the franchise seemingly has a string of successful, happy couples together. Fans are also hoping that there may be some lasting relationships coming out of Bachelor in Paradise as well, but folks will have to wait and see on that one.
While this The Bachelor couple isn't engaged yet, it also appears that the Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell split rumors are wrong as well. Do you think they will last?
