The Bachelor stars and embattled lovers Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have a breakdown, but later a breakthrough, on Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 4.
Watch her get emotional in this talk with Dr. Jenn Berman as she finally admits why she has her guard up, and what's been hanging over her head for months ...
If you watched The Bachelor, you have to kinda sorta feel bad for Nikki Ferrell, even though she is far from perfect and dating Juan Pablo by choice.
Watching him give her the final rose, but no engagement ring or even the words “I love you,” rubbed many viewers the wrong way earlier this year.
Equally bizarre? Her willingness to defend him and even emulate her boyfriend's bitterness toward the reality show they signed up for in the first place.
Clearly, the pediatric nurse from Kansas City isn't truly happy with the way things are going with El Bachelor, and Dr. Jenn finally got that out of her.
We’ve seen her struggle all season on Couples Therapy, as Nikki got into it with Dr. Jenn just last week and basically refused to open up about things.
Well, Nikki has a major breakthrough during group therapy this evening.
It's like it hits her all at once, and like a train. Ferrell still feels like she needs to be picked, even though Juan Pablo already picked her. There's the rub.
Dr. Jenn helps Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell come to this realization, which they say helped save their romance (seriously). But it didn't come easily.
In another clip from tonight's episode (above), Nikki explains her issues with the cameras, getting on the nerves of the HIV positive Dick Donato.
Deena Cortese‘s reaction sums up what everyone is thinking in regard to this girl ... why sign up to go on a reality show if you don’t want cameras on you?!
You can watch Couples Therapy online to see it go down tonight. Should be very interesting for both Dick and Nikki, as well as the rest of the cast.
Meanwhile, here are some pics of Juan and Nikki's relationship so far:
