Is this Juan Pablo Galavis’s way of saying “I love you”?
Galavis picked – but did not propose to – Ferrell on the finale, and though the two were still a couple during the After the Final Rose special, the former soccer pro wouldn’t say whether he loves her.
The 32-year-old has expressed his frustration with the ABC reality show, and he hinted at his controversial reputation in the video’s description.
“Thanks for these INTERESTING 4 months of HIDING, now that the CHARACTER of ‘The Bachelor’ is OVER, it is time for US to live our life for REAL,” he wrote to Ferrell, 26. “Te ADORO.” (Watch the video below.)
The montage, set to an original song, shows many moments familiar to viewers: their first meeting, exotic dates and onscreen smooches. But it also includes behind-the-scenes selfies and screenshots of video chats during their separation between the finale’s taping and airing.
