Eric Hill, a contestant on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, was severely injured in a paragliding accident on Sunday and has passed away.

His sister Karen Tracy confirmed that Hill died via Facebook today:

"Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away," she wrote after his death.

"Thank you to all of your love and support and prayers and fasting."

"It was amazing to be with so many of his friends and family yesterday in the hospital who came to express their love for Eric. He gave us such a gift of a life."

"It is hard to think of life without his bright spark, but we know he is on to new adventures. We look forward to carrying on his legacy here and greeting him joyfully again someday."

"I love you so much, little brother!"

Will The Bachelor winner Nikki Ferrell accept Juan Pablo Galavis' proposal ... to move to his hometown of Miami so they can be closer to one another?

The worst Bachelor ever is reportedly pushing the pediatric nurse to not only pick up and move to Florida, but parlay her fame into a high profile career.

Juan Pablo, Nikki

"He wants Nikki to work as a model or TV personality in Miami," the friend says of Juan Pablo Galavis, a soccer pro turned sports and music consultant.

Miami is the Venezuela native's home base; he and his family, including daughter Camila, live in the sunny hot spot. Will Nikki Ferrell join him there?

Supposedly, she's mulling a move from Missouri to be with Galavis, who is still together with her (and is reportedly hurt and embarrassed by ABC dissing him).

A geographic change is more appealing to her than a career change, though; she's more interested in caring for patients than modeling or hosting anything.

Juan Pablo Galavis is feeling hurt, used and embarrassed, apparently, following ABC's release of a poster for The Bachelorette featuring Andi Dorfman.

The clever teaser for the May 19 season features a beaming Andi plucking petals from a red rose alongside the caption, "She's looking for the right one."

"One" is written out in red, of course, after "Juan" is totally crossed off:

  • Ess Okay

Even a self-obsessed douche knows when he's disliked, and in Juan Pablo's case, he's probably fine with it. But by rubbing it in his face, ABC pissed him off.

He's "embarrassed" and feels "used" after becoming a punchline. Aww.

Follow Andi Dorfman's dumping of Juan on The Bachelor's penultimate episode this winter, Clare Crawley dissed him similarly hard on the finale.

Nikki Ferrell won the final rose, to the envy of ... pretty much no one.

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis have been through the wringer, but have come out happier - and lasted longer as a couple - than a lot of people expected.

Still, as with any famous couple (especially one in which one half has proven to be a douche at times), there will be critics on the Internets. In droves.

Nikki has chosen to address the haters head on.

Offering some fighting words after a fan on Instagram questioned her happiness and her relationship, Ferrell is not going to sit back and take it anymore.

Despite the fact that he may not have said "I love you" after all, she clearly feels this catch is worth hanging onto - and defending in a public forum.

Apparently, the winner of The Bachelor, often seen as submissive, can be quite fired up when defending her man from the duo's many detractors.

Like Desiree Hartsock often did after her engagement to Chris Siegfied, Nikki posted an inspirational quote as a thinly-veiled message to her critics:

The first poster for the new season of The Bachelorette has been released, featuring Andi Dorfman and taking a little shot at Juan Pablo Galavis.

"She's looking for the right one," the tease for the ABC reality hit reads, but the "one" is written in red ... after the word "Juan" has been crossed out.

Given the way Andi Dorfman peaced out of The Bachelor - dissing and dismissing Juan Pablo HARD on the penultimate episode - the diss is pretty perfect.

The Bachelor star, who later picked (and is somehow still with) Nikki Ferrell, turned off many fans with the aloof, inconsiderate ways Andi called him out on.

Andi described the Fantasy Suite as anything but, calling it "a nightmare" and chastising Galavis for his "inappropriate" and "offensive" comments.

Perhaps most notably, she told him there's a difference between being honest and "being an asshole" (Clare Crawley certainly won't argue with her).

Rumors that the controversial Juan Pablo Galavis said "I love you" to Nikki Ferrell took Bachelor Nation by storm this week, but were they even true?

He's playing it typically close to the vest if so.

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell

Those adorable photos of them flirting and hanging out at wedding chapels recently may have been just for show, or at least not quite what we thought they were.

A reporter caught up with the duo when they were in Vegas and asked about the big L-word rumor. Juan Pablo's response? "There's no need to rush anything."

Always a charmer.

Nikki Ferrell agreed with him (big surprise there) and said when it's right, it will be right. Man, this girl is hooked on the Juan Pablo Kool-Aid, isn't she?

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell sure are proving the doubters wrong.

The Bachelor duo may not stand the test of time, but they've stood the test of a longer chunk than expected. Yes, it's been like a month. Low expectations, people!

Given the finale, the non-proposal, the debacle that was the After the Final Rose special and his general d-bag tendencies, faith in the pair was not overwhelming.

Was there love between Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell? Did he see a future with her? Or did he just love f--king her a little more than Clare Crawley?

Take a look at this photo and your impressions of them might change:

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell LOVE

We will clearly never get the magazine interviews, the PDAs, the over-the-top sweetness we've seen from Sean Lowe and other stars of the franchise.

But Juan Pablo did say I love you, allegedly, and this pic certainly suggests that these are two smiling people happy to be together and - dare we say it?

We don't believe he'll get Nikki Ferrell pregnant anytime soon, but we are starting to think there may be legitimate chemistry and feelings between them.

Perhaps she's just swooning hard over the fact that Juan Pablo said "I love you" (allegedly), but Nikki Ferrell might be getting a bit carried away here.

The Bachelor winner has been pinning up a storm on a Pinterest board titled "My Someday Wedding." Yup, she's already planning her Big Day. Uh oh.

Feel the Passion

We're likely reading too much into this, since Pinterest is so successful because it allows people to indulge in lifestyle fantasies of all kinds online,

Pretty much every 20-something female loves that site, and "someday" doesn't imply that she's holding her breath for Juan Pablo Galavis to propose.

At least we hope not.

If she is daydreaming about a wedding with Juan Pablo, she may want to cool her heels a bit, although what do we know really? They're still together!

Nearly a month after The Bachelor season finale, Juan Pablo Galavis has finally uttered those three little words to Nikki Ferrell, according to a new report.

The Bachelor star "has told her, 'I love you,'" an insider dishes.

As fans know, Juan Pablo refused to propose, or even declare his love for Ferrell on The Bachelor finale or the After the Final Rose special on ABC.

This left fans and contestants puzzled ... even a bit outraged.

Juan Pablo's attitude toward Chris Harrison and reluctance to offer any details, coupled with his antics on the show this winter, made him seem like a ...

Anyway, he's supposedly dropped the l-bomb at long last.

"They Skype and text every day and are in constant contact," the source adds of the Miami-based sports consultant and Ferrell, a pediatric nurse in K.C.
