The Bachelor's Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell may have been painful to watch on Couples Therapy, but they credit it with saving their relationship.
Things didn't exactly look good on the show (they rarely do with Juan Pablo regarding anything), but he and Nikki Ferrell are still very much together.
Thanks in no small part, he says, to the guidance of Dr. Jenn Berman.
"We are so glad we did [Couples Therapy]," Juan Pablo, 33, said.
"I don't think we'd be together right now if we hadn't done it."
The two have also shared a long-distance relationship, which hasn't helped matters, but the real challenge for Nikki was his lack of concern. For anything.
"I just sometimes feel like he's so nonchalant about things," Ferrell lamented to Berman. "I don't want to force anything from him, there's still a part of me who wonders."
"Maybe today it's gonna come. Maybe tomorrow it's gonna come."
Juan Pablo looked like an idiot admitting he'd never thought about her feelings, but did open up about a real issue that served as a roadblock for him.
"The main issue I had," Galavis said in a rare earnest moment, "was I'd never introduced my daughter to my girlfriend… I didn't know how to handle it."
"Like, if I said 'girlfriend' and we broke up, then [dated] another, and [my daughter's] like, 'Daddy, what was that other girlfriend? And that other girlfriend?' I didn't want that."
Future clips from Season 5 show Juan Pablo CRYING, no less.
"I'm a crybaby. It's intense. I never thought it was gonna be," he said. "You learn so much about yourself and the things that hurt somebody that you didn't even realize."
Maybe there's hope for him yet? We never thought we'd say that.
Nikki Ferrell, 27, was the last lady standing on Galavis' controversial season of The Bachelor, which ended with him refusing to profess his love.
"I like you a lot," he told Ferrell after he was torn a new one by both Clare Crawley and Andi Dorfman, who finished second and third on his season.
