The couple is now officially dating after Galavis chose Ferrell in the March 10 finale episode of the Bachelor. Many fans were furious over the ending when Galavis told Ferrell he wasn't ready to propose, and only offered her the final rose instead. On the live after show, Ferrell said she loves Galavis, but admitted he has never said the same back to her.
