The Bachelor stars Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell were doomed from the start as a couple, at least according to the vast majority of Bachelor Nation.
It barely registered as a surprise, then, when rumors of their split surfaced this summer following reports of Juan Pablo getting his flirt on with another woman.
The celebrity gossip publications and readers alike have been proven wrong, however, as the two remain not only together, but happier than ever.
"We're doing great," Ferrell says. "We are very happy together."
"People are going to say what they want to say," Juan Pablo tells People. "I can't pay attention to any of that. I don't like to read what people write."
"They don't know us and what our relationship is all about."
Adds Nikki Ferrell, his final rose recipient last winter: "He does a better job of ignoring it than I do. I read what people say, and it does hurt my feelings."
"I'm only human. But really, we are happy and doing well."
