Nikki Ferrell Bashes ABC Spinoff Bachelor in Paradise: "I'd Rather Stab Pencils in My Eyeballs" Than Watch
In case you were wondering, former Bachelor contestant Nikki Ferrell will not be tuning into ABC's Bachelor spinoff Bachelor in Paradise.
The blonde nurse, who accepted a final rose from season 18 Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis even though he was unable to tell her "I love you," continued to bash the ABC franchise via Twitter, tweeting on Aug. 4 that she'd rather injure herself than watch the latest show.
"Everyone keeps asking if I'm gonna watch Bachelor In Paradise. To be honest I'd rather stab pencils in my eyeballs. #trainwreck," she wrote.
The outspoken 27-year-old, who is still dating Galavis, previously voiced her frustration with the franchise after good friend Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette wrapped on July 28.
During the season 10 After the Final Rose special, rejected contestant and runner up Nick Viall asked Dorfman why she slept with him if she didn't love him, prompting Ferrell to tweet: "Gee I wonder who told Nick to say that....How the producers of @BachelorABC sleep at night is beyond me. #trash."
Viall himself, however, told reporters during a conference call that producers "had nothing to do with [his comments]."
"That's 100 percent false," Viall said when asked if he was prompted by producers to bring up his fantasy suite date with Dorfman. "They had nothing to do with it, they were … as surprised as anyone else … Not to try to protect them or anything like that, but I take full responsibility for what I said, whether it was a good idea or not."
