Juan Pablo Galavis reportedly fooled show producers into thinking he'd present a "big surprise" -- aka proposing to girlfriend Nikki Ferrell -- during The Bachelor: After the Final Rose on Monday night.

The Bachelor star told producers he had a surprise waiting for the audience, leading them to believe he was going to pop the question to Ferrell after simply giving her his final rose during the show's eighteenth-season finale, which filmed in October, E! News reported.

"When we were in Saint Lucia, you mentioned to one of our network executives that you had a big surprise for tonight," host Chris Harrison began.

"That I have a big surprise?" Galavis asked in confusion. "I don't. I talked to the executives and I keep my secret well done, and this is my secret. I'm here happy with Nikki. We're very happy, both of us, and we're going to start a relationship from today on as a regular life."

"So there is no surprise?" Harrison double-checked.

"No, you're talking about a surprise, no," Galavis repeated.

"Oh, okay," Harrison noted before quickly changing the subject.

According to an E! News source, Galavis had absolutely no intention to propose to Ferrell although he previously suggested otherwise. The Bachelor's creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss had even expressed his anticipation for a "big surprise" engagement before last night's special aired.

"Hearing rumors that @JuanPaGalavis has a big surprise in store for tonite's live finale! Good thing @chrisbharrison is an ordained minister!... Do I hear wedding bells???" Fleiss tweeted on Monday.

A Neil Lane diamond ring was reportedly on standby at the taping of the After the Final Rose special just in case Galavis decided to ask Ferrell for her hand in marriage, however, Galavis didn't actually have the ring on him during filming.

The Bachelor's eighteenth-season finale aired last night and concluded with Ferrell getting a rose but no engagement ring or an "I love you" from the show's star.
