By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/02/2017
The Bachelor star Nick Viall began his overnight fantasy suite dates in Finland on this week's broadcast, and before Season 21 viewers know it, only two bachelorettes will remain.
Nick, a 36-year-old former software salesman from Wisconsin, eliminated Corinne Olympios during a Rose Ceremony in Brooklyn, NY. Nick felt the need to send Corinne home after visiting her hometown of Miami, FL, because his relationship with the 24-year-old blonde beauty wasn't as far along as what he had developed with the remaining three women.
In the latest The Bachelor episode, Nick and his Final 3 ladies traveled to Lapland, Finland. The only person to share her deepest feelings with Nick at this point in the journey was Vanessa, so the Bachelor was hoping Raven and Rachel would open up.
Nick's week of snowy dates kicked off with Raven, a helicopter ride over the picturesque landscape, a local pub and the Northern Lights.
During their fantasy suite date, Raven admitted to Nick she had fallen in love with him. Her profession of love was one of the sweetest Nick has ever heard in his life, and since the Bachelor teared up during her little speech, she was convince he reciprocated such feelings.
But Nick also appears to have a strong connection with Vanessa, who was the first girl Nick really opened up to this season, and Rachel, who captured his attention on Day 1 and received his First Impression Rose.
Nick really needs to think about which woman could be his future wife and partner in life. Nick even considered not having sex with any of the women in the fantasy suites in order to increase his chances this process is going to work for him.
Although Bachelor Nation is unsure whether Nick falls deeply in love and/or proposes at the end of his journey on the show, he's definitely considering it because he asked each bachelorette's father for permission to get engaged during the women's round of hometown dates.
Rachel recently confirmed on The Ellen DeGeneres show that Nick "let her go" and she never quit the season, but it was "his loss."
So will Rachel be eliminated when Nick determines his Final 2 bachelorettes, or will he send her packing during the final Rose Ceremony when he chooses the woman of his dreams? And which girl turns out to be the last one standing?
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want the ending of Nick's season to be a surprise].
Nick sends Rachel home after their overnight fantasy suite date, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
And finally, at the last Rose Ceremony of the season, Nick rejects Raven in favor of Vanessa, whom he gives his final rose to. Raven was head over heels in love with Nick at this point in the season, so she was probably devastated.
As for Nick's current love life, he's reportedly still happily engaged to Vanessa. Reality Steve claimed the Bachelor's fourth attempt at finding love on a reality dating series truly was the charm.
Below is the list of bachelorettes who are still in the running for Nick's heart:
- Raven Gates, a 25-year-old fashion boutique owner from Hoxie, AR
- Vanessa Grimaldi, a 29-year-old special education teacher from Montreal, Quebec, Canada
