It remains stunning, yet true: Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have broken up.
Despite their constant fighting and nagging and pestering - along with Juan Pablo's refusal to ever tell Nikki that he loved her - the couple called it quits earlier this month.
Who dumped whom and why?
As anyone who has ever watched Couples Therapy online can attest to, Nikki clearly wanted to settle down and Juan Pablo did not. (Nikki also wanted to be with a man who loved and respected her. Crazy, right?!?)
So, considering their obvious issues and a lack of reciprocated feelings, why did this relationship even last as long as it did?
"The main reason Juan stayed with Nikki was to spite all the haters who thought they would break up, and to stay relevant so he could promote himself," an insider tells Us Weekly, adding of Juan Pablo's career aspirations:
"Juan wants to be a soccer or baseball commentator, and also a manager for high-profile Latin athletes."
Conversely, Ferrell was in it due to actual affection for the former Bachelor star.
"Juan did say 'I love you' to Nikki, but only a couple of times," the source says of Ferrell. "She wanted [him] to say it every time they spoke, and he couldn't do that."
Location was also an issue for Galavis and Ferrell, as Juan Pablo wanted Nikki to move to Miami and never considered going to Kansas.
“She couldn't get him to compromise at all,” the mole concludes. “Everything Nikki wanted, he didn’t.”
That sort of thing is difficult to overcome in a relationship, it's true.
So while Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis lick their wounds from this split, there is one person smiling right now: Chris Soules.
The Bachelor bar for this attractive single - who will start handing out roses to desperate women in January on ABC - has been set very, very, very VERY low by Juan Pablo.
