Juan Pablo Galavis has a proposal for girlfriend Nikki Ferrellbut it's not the one fans have been hoping for since the season 18 finale of ABC's The Bachelor. The reality TV alum, 32, is pushing pediatric nurse Ferrell, 26, to parlay her fame into a high profile career, a pal reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

"He wants Nikki to work as a model or TV personality in Miami," the friend says of Galavis, a soccer pro turned sports and music consultant. (Miami is the Venezuelan native's home base; he and his family, including daughter Camila, live in the Florida city.)

Ferrell, for her part, is mulling a move from Missouri to be with Galavisbut she's more interested in hospitals than hosting. "She loves her job," the pal tell Us.

In fact, the blonde beauty's passion for her work is one of the things her beau likes most about her. Earlier this month, the single father posted an Instagram photo of his girlfriend at work, writing, "Mi Catira @nikki_ferrell LOVES her JOB and that's ONE of the things I LOVE about her… #NikkiTheNurse."

That said, Galavis can be persuasive. As one source previously told Us of the controversial but charming Bachelor alum, "Girls who date Juan do what he wants."
