The former pro soccer player and his girlfriend join other reality stars such as Deena Cortese and her boyfriend Chris Buckner, as well as Dick Donato and his girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer.
After finding love on "The Bachelor", Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell will get "Couples Therapy" from Dr. Jenn Berman. The couple who has been dating since meeting in season 18 of the ABC reality series will talk about their relationship issues on the VH1 show.
According to PEOPLE, the former pro soccer player and his fiancee have signed up to appear in the upcoming season 5 of "Couples Therapy". They join previously announced celebrity couples, including Jenna Jameson and her MMA coach boyfriend John Wood, former "Jersey Shore" star Deena Cortese and her beau Chris Buckner, "Big Brother" villain Dick Donato and Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, as well as Naughty by Nature's Treach and girlfriend Cicely Evans.
Juan Pablo and Nikki's participation was teased in a promo released in mid-August, which features the arrival of "TV's most controversial couple." Their faces, however, are blurred in the video.
Despite their involvement in "Couples Therapy", the couple claimed they had been going strong. Nikki said last month, "We're doing great. We're very happy together." Juan Pablo added, "She's a wonderful woman - smart, caring, who treats my daughter amazingly well."
Unlike many other "Bachelor" stars who proposed to the winning girl in the finale, Juan Pablo didn't pop the question to Nikki. He addresses this in a preview video for "Couples Therapy". "I was criticized a lot for not saying 'I love you' to Nikki," he admits, before explaining, "In the Venezuelan community, it means something. I mean, to propose to someone, it means something. Am I going to say 'I love you' to Nikki? I don't know yet."
Nikki has no issue with that, saying, "Just because he hasn't said it to me, doesn't mean that I don't say it to him. I don't expect him to say it back when I say it. Maybe one day, he will. In all reality, we haven't been together too long. But he does; he loves me. He's committed to this."
Juan Pablo adds, "Is she the one or not? That's a great question. I think she's on the right track. Everything she does that I don't like, I'm like, 'Is this gonna work?' It's just a process, but I think we could communicate better; that's one of the reasons why we're here."
