But Rycroft, 31, admitted it was tough to view Galavis in a positive light this season.
"It's so hard to judge because it is reality TV -- and to a point it is edited -- but unfortunately, it didn't come across as very likable," she told People of The Bachelor star, who gave girlfriend Nikki Ferrellhis final rose without a proposal or even an "I love you."
"He didn't come across as the guy who was really, genuinely there to find love and find a wife."
