While Monday's Bachelor finale may not have ended in an engagement, that didn't stop Juan Pablo Galavis from picking out a ring for Nikki Ferrell.

So where is the 3.5-carat sparkler – a diamond and platinum ring set with a central cushion-cut diamond, and encrusted with more than 240 smaller round diamonds – now that JP didn't get down on one knee?

According to a show source: "The ring is now with producers and is not in Juan Pablo's possession. If a proposal doesn't occur on the show, the show holds on to the ring. If Juan Pablo decides to propose in the near future, the ring would be his for the asking. But much further down the line? It's unclear whether or not he'd still have access to it."

Harrison and the studio audience seemed perplexed as to why Nikki could say she was happy and "absolutely" still in love, though she hadn't heard Juan Pablo say he's in love with her.

Chris Harrison may be right – Monday's season finale of Juan Pablo Galavis's roller-coaster ride as the star of The Bachelor was perhaps the most dramatic yet.

So which woman won Juan Pablo's heart and the final rose? And is there a newly engaged couple in the Bachelor family?

There were some awkward moments when 17 of Juan Pablo Galavis's Bachelorettes gathered for Monday night's "Women Tell All" episode of The Bachelor.

But instead of catfights among the contestants, they teamed up to tear apart the soccer playing single dad. But they believed they had good reason – "viewers were shocked by how he treated some of the women this season," host Chris Harrison noted at the top of the show.

And as the cameras rolled, they didn't hold back. While we learned that Renee has moved on, that Sharleen doesn't regret walking out, and that Kelly, who has a gay dad, was so offended by Galavis's controversial gay comments that she cried, the biggest surprise was how quickly the women have gotten over their loving feelings towards the Venezuelan hunk.
