Prior to getting romantically involved with Tyler, Nikki endured a highly-publicized and criticized relationship with Juan Pablo following the finale of his The Bachelor season in March 2014, which featured an anti-climactic ending in which Juan Pablo told Nikki, "I like you," and offered her nothing but his final rose.
Reports circulated at the time Juan Pablo couldn't communicate his feelings for Nikki and allegedly used her for the fame of their celebrity pairing.
"I knew I was never going to be the No. 1 priority, like, he has a daughter. But I mean, there's a difference between being the second priority and the seventh priority. We're just different people and... we just never saw eye to eye on [things]," Nikki told Chris Harrison back in January 2015.
"It's not from a lack of trying on either side. I tried really hard and he tried hard too... It's just, I'm a nurse in Kansas City and he lives in Miami, and he's in the entertainment industry... It was just really hard for me to fit into that."
Many The Bachelor fans strongly disliked Juan Pablo during his season for how he treated the women, and those negative opinions spilled onto Nikki for choosing to be with him despite those obvious flaws.
"No one prepares you for what's going to happen on the show and being in the spotlight... I wanted everyone [to] be happy for me, and I felt like [our situation] was misunderstood for a lot of reasons... the hurtful things that people said to me, it's just no one can prepare you for that," Nikki added in the interview with The Bachelor host.
