Juan Pablo Galavis created what is easily the most controversial finale/reunion the reality dating competition show has ever seen — and we say that in all seriousness, not the way Chris Harrison hyperbolically calls every finale the “most dramatic.”

Despite oodles of backlash, Galavis is seemingly OK with it all and ready to move on with his life. He Instagrammed two very telling photos in the wake of the finale. The first just reads, “Throw me to the wolves and I’ll come back leading the pack.”

And the second is above, a photo of Juan Pablo and his chosen winner Nikki Ferrell, simply captioned, “We are FREE.”
