I like you a lot. Good enough for me. Let’s make out. And so ends Season 18 of The Bachelor.
Who got kicked off: And who Juan Pablo kinda-sorta-maybe-by-accident-non-noncommittally chose.
Juan Pabs: Nikki will you accept my final rose? I’m not 100% sure I want to propose to you. I have the ring – this huge giant rock – in my pocket, but psyche! I’m not gonna give it to you. But I like you a lot (not love). I like you a lot.
Nikki: Yup, good enough for me.
I paraphrase, but that’s pretty much the highlights. Juan Pablo told Nikki he had the ring, but wasn’t ready to propose to her. He told her he liked her a lot. And that’s about it. Then he asked if she would accept the last rose. She said yes.
The proposal speech
I love your honesty, because you’re like me.
I can see you as a good stepmom with Camilla.
It’s been a perfect time every time I’m with you.
Clare: “What you just made me go through I would never want my children having a father like you.” That’s a bit of a low blow there, Clare, don’t you think?
After Clare stormed out, Juan Pabs’ reaction was, “I’m glad I didn’t pick her.” Juan Pabs, those are thoughts we keep to ourselves. America is not gonna be super happy to hear that.
