WEtv's Marriage Boot Camp stars Jim and Elizabeth Carroll sat down with Galavis and Ferrell this week in Miami to talk about their relationship. "I think they have marriage on their minds, but I think what Juan did was a really, I mean it wasn't a very romantic fairy-tale ending, but I think what he did was very wise in the fact that he said you know, 'I want to go through conflicts with this girl. I want to do some problem solving, I want to see basically what the ugly side is before I jump out there and tell somebody I love them and just get married,'" Jim Carroll told the magazine.
Although host Chris Harrison criticized Galavis for not telling Ferrell that he loved her, Elizabeth Carroll defended the controversial Bachelor contestant. "A lot of people are saying that he's commitment phobic or he's not ready for commitment, but we were actually seeing a different side of him," she continued. "Not only is he not commitment-phobic, he is very serious about commitment. That's why he didn't jump into the engagement right away, because it is very serious to him."

Despite the Carrolls' praise, Jim Carroll says that Galavis' and Ferrell's personalities might be too different to make it work. "He is a very strong leader, he's masculine, he doesn't like to compromise a whole lot, and he's got a good value system," Jim said. "Nikki is more nurturing, sympathetic, and she's more feminine in her values. So when you put those two kind of people together the stronger one -- like Juan Pablo -- would tend to run over somebody like Nikki, if Nikki doesn't have good boundaries."
