Juan Pablo Galavis has been on the receiving-end of a lot of criticism after he opted to not propose to anyone during The Bachelor finale last night, but that doesn't necessarily mean he didn't find love.
The Venezuelan reality star posted a video montage of his relationship with Nikki Ferrell, highlighting their moments together from the show and their time together since they stopped taping. And yes, it's pretty friggin' cute.
"This is a RECAP of Mi Aventura…Thanks to Obie Bermudez for using the WORDS I sent him and TURNING them into a SONG…'Adventures In Love You' is for you Mi Catira…," Galavis wrote in the opening slate of the video titled "Adventures in Loving You."
The pictures range from their first meeting on The Bachelor and their one-on-one dates to home videos and selfies sent to each other while spending time apart after the show wrapped.
"Thanks for these INTERESTING 4 months of HIDING, now that the CHARACTER of 'The Bachelor' is OVER, it is time for US to live our life for REAL. Te ADORO," Juan Pablo close the video clip.
Many people, including celebs, shared their two cents on the situation on Twitter, and some of the tweets didn't exactly sit well with Nikki, who wrote, "Being in the public eye does NOT give you the right to say what you want to me. Your words hurt no matter what. Be ashamed of yourselves."
Regardless of public opinion, Galavis' family has come to his defense, saying the reality star took the show "very seriously" and is "very happy" with his girlfriend. "He didn't propose to her because I don't think you are able to propose to somebody in just a month and a half," Rodolfo Soules, a cousin of Juan Pablo's who appeared several times on The Bachelor during scenes with family, told E! News in an exclusive chat about the aftermath of the ABC series' most controversial season yet.
"He really cared for her and she was the one who gave Juan Pablo the idea of not proposing," Rodolfo said. "Juan Pablo has never watched the show before, so he doesn't know how it works. So that is how he was able to find out that he didn't have to propose and basically do what he really wanted to do, which was allowing him to be true to himself."
