Nick Viall has finally chosen his final two in the latest episode of "The Bachelor" Season 21. However, his decision was marred with controversy as Rachel Lindsay got sent home. Did Nick choose not to keep Rachel because it would generate more ratings? Will he eventually go with Vanessa Grimaldi since she is a fan favorite?

The latest episode of "The Bachelor" Season 21 found Nick Viall enjoying a nice date with Rachel Lindsay, to whom he confesses that he is falling for "100 percent." Fans immediately thought Rachel would be one of the final girls, if not the winner, of the show. However, it is later revealed that Vanessa Grimaldi and Raven Gates got a rose (via Variety). Why did Nick decide to abandon Rachel at the last minute after professing his love?

Glamour recently spoke with Nick Viall on his shocking decision in the latest "The Bachelor" Season 21 episode. According to Nick, he "didn't have a reason to send [Rachel Lindsay] home" but decided to do so because of "the other women." Nick also admitted that things would have worked out differently "in another world." Does this mean Rachel was chosen to ensure more ratings for the show?

There is a possibility that ABC has other plans for Rachel Lindsay. After all, Variety has already reported that she has been chosen to star in "The Bachelorette" Season 13. It is possible that Nick Viall was urged to dump Rachel so she could go on to her own show.

It might be over for Rachel Lindsay, but Nick Viall still needs to make an important decision. Will he choose Vanessa Grimaldi over Raven Gates? "The Bachelor" Season 21 finale will air on March 13.
