On Clare: ''Maybe he's just trying to give Clare fair warning that she's not getting the final rosethough his approach is about as humane as a doctor trying to remove someone's eye with a spork.''
The Choice: ''Okay, blondieit's time for your 'dream' to come 'true.' You're about to hear Juan Pablo say he loves you. Oh, wait...sorry, we're getting some new information here.... You're actually going to hear him say he loves a bunch of things about you. And now for the big but: It turns out Juan Pablo really was listening when Nikki's dad Tom politely asked him not to propose if he wasn't feeling it 100 percent.''
What Happened Next: Rumors surrounded Juan Pablo and Nikki's controversial relationship from the moment that he refused to propose or say those three little words to his new girlfriend (at least on camera). Though Nikki posted a photo with Juan Pablo on Instagram in June 2014, she posted a quote in July 2014 that led people to speculate she was calling their relationship a lie. Ferrell also took Bachelorette producers to task over Twitter for orchestrating a confrontation on Andi Dorfman's After the Final Rose special. Though Juan Pablo posted an Instagram photo of himself with Nikki and daughter Camila on July 28, 2014, it remains unclear whether he has yet to utter ''I love you.''
