While “The Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis was in the Dominican Republic with KC’s Nikki Ferrell for a wedding – not their own – runner-up Clare Crawley told “Good Morning America” she has no regrets from being on the show.
And why should she? After watching last week’s dramatic finale, in which Clare told off Juan Pablo at the final rose ceremony in spectacular fashion, some fans believe that she dodged a big ol’ bullet when he didn’t pick her.
“I would never want my children having a father like you,” the Sacramento, Calif. hair stylist told him.
In an appearance Monday on “GMA,” Clare said she wasn’t completely surprised that Nikki got the rose. Things hadn’t gone well on her final date with Juan Pablo, when he allegedly told her, off-camera, that he enjoyed bleeping her but felt he didn’t know her well.
“The greatest thing is that I have zero regrets,” she said Monday. “I went into this feeling I’m going to be 100 percent open and I’m going to be 100 percent myself and I’m going to think about what I do and, because I thought and then acted, I’m proud of that.”
Going into the now-infamous final rose ceremony, she said she was determined to see the show through to the end “and no matter what happens, I’m going to say how I feel.”
She also hinted that she’s seeing someone. “I’m very happy,” she said. “The good thing is it’s not on TV right now.”
Nikki and Juan Pablo aren’t on TV anymore, either, but you sure couldn’t tell it from the amount of media attention they’re still getting. When Nikki tweeted a photo of the two of them attending the wedding of one of his friends over the weekend, the picture showed up all over the Internet.
And TMZ ran a paparazzi photo of them at that ceremony sharing a kiss – Nikki puckered up with her eyes closed, Juan Pablo eyes wide open looking somewhere else.
Read the big, bold headline: “He’s just not that into you.”
