With the eighteenth season of the Bachelor coming to an end viewers all over are wondering if Juan Pablo Galavis found love. The two women left in the final round were hairstylist Clare Crawley,32, and pediatric nurse Nikki Ferrell,26. The show had twist and turns that kept you at the edge of your seat with the unexpected ending.
US Magazine reports that the 32-year-old Venezuelan born bachelor made the season finale the most dramatic thus far.
Sparks started to ignite when Juan Pablo brought Clare and Nikki to have one on one time with his family. Nikki had already met his parents and his daughter prior to the finale.
During Nikki’s date she had an opportunity to have a heart to heart with Juan Pablo’s father. He gave her advice and insight to his son’s personality.
Juan Pablo’s father said, “He’s not an easy guy. It’s always about what he wants.”
Clare’s date started off the show and his family instantly fell in love with her personality.
People reports that Juan Pablo’s father instantly gave her his seal of approval. During their conversation he had told her “I love you” in Spanish.
Clare was very open with her feelings towards Juan Pablo and his family. She said, “Juan Pablo definitely has my heart. And now so does his family. I could 1,000 percent see myself a part of Juan Pablo’s family forever.”
Unfortunately Juan Pablo didn’t feel the same way. As the episode was coming to an end Juan Pablo told Clare, “I got to follow what I think is best for me and I have to say goodbye to you.”
Clare didn’t take the rejection well as she pushed him away when he tried to hug her. In response to Juan Pablo’s decision Clare told him, “I saved this moment for the man of my dreams and I thought that was you. What you just made me go through – I would never want my children having a father like you.”
Juan Pablo had a surprise up his sleeve when he presented the rose to Nikki. The night didn’t end with an engagement ring but a proposition to continue their relationship in which she enthusiastically accepted.
Juan Pablo told Nikki, “I’m not going to give it to you. I’m not 100 percent sure I want to propose to you. But at the same time I’m 100 percent sure that I don’t want to let you go. I like you a lot. A lot.”
