Chris Harrison (and the rest of us) were shocked when Juan Pablo didn’t propose to Nikki, but instead just gave her his final rose. However, Nikki is completely fine without a ring, she revealed in a new interview!
Nikki Ferrell doesn’t need Juan Pablo Galavis to put a ring on it to prove that he cares about her! The Bachelor winner is completely fine with just being JuanPab’s girlfriend . . . and she understands why he didn’t pop the question!
Nikki Ferrell: No Ring, No Problem
“I absolutely would have said yes [if he proposed],” Nikki told People magazine in a new interview. “Those feelings that I had on the show were vey real, and they’re still very real. I want him to propose when he’s ready. But I also realize, looking back, that to just meet somebody and all of a sudden you’re getting engaged? That’s kind of crazy.”[hl_ndn videoid=”25702266″][hl_ndn videoid=”5661214”]
Juan Pablo chimed in, agreeing.
“You go on the show thinking if there’s the connection, you propose and get married,” the bachelor said. “But I don’t feel the need to propose to somebody if I don’t feel it 100 percent. I didn’t know Nikki [well enough]. I don’t know if she holds silverware well! I want to know more. A lot more.”
So, it sounds like Nikki is completely OK with just being his girlfriend for the time being and not the fiancée — at least until he learns how she holds a fork and knife.
Nikki: If We Break Up, Then My First Engagement Would Be Ruined
“If Juan Pablo had proposed and I was sitting here with a ring on my finger, that wouldn’t stop us from breaking up if we weren’t right for each other,” Nikki pointed out. “All it would do is take being engaged for the first time away from me and away from him.”
Well, that’s true — however, during the After the Final Rose interview, he still wouldn’t tell her he loved her. While HollywoodLife.com learned that he actually has already said those three words in private, it’s strange he won’t say it for others to hear. However, if she’s ok with it, we are too.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that Nikki doesn’t care about the ring? Do you think he’ll propose (eventually)? Let us know!
