— -- Sean Lowe was noticeably uncomfortable last night when Juan Pablo Galavis didn't want to discuss his feelings on "The Bachelor's After the Final Rose."

He tweeted that it was "painful to watch" as host Chris Harrison tried time and again to get the current "Bachelor" to tell the winner Nikki Ferrell he loved her.

Today, Lowe is speaking up again.

"My take on last night: I commend JP on not proposing if he isn't ready. And he certainly shouldn't feel pressured to say 'I love you,'" he tweeted. "However, as the bachelor you can't say I want to keep my feelings private. You owe it to the fans and network to open up. That's the job."

Finally, Lowe commented on the rude back-and-forth that took place between Galavis and Harrison.

"Lastly, disrespecting the nicest guy in show business @chrisbharrison should be a crime. That's my take. Wish them nothing but happiness," he said.
