The duo have an intense heart-to-heart and Andi gives Nick some relationship advice about how to handle things going forward. Who said exes couldn’t be friends? Our bachelor Nick heads off to the rose ceremony following his intense conversation with Andi, where he eliminates Corinne.

Jetting off to Lapland, Finland

One of the main reasons why The Bachelor is so popular among its millions of viewers is the exotic foreign locales. The hit ABC matchmaking show is famous for creating elaborate romantic scenarios, whether it be a sunny tropical beach paradise or a starry night in the snow. According to the latest The Bachelor 2017 spoilers, Nick and his top three finalists will head off to picturesque land of Lapland, Finland where the highly-anticipated overnight dates will take place. Be prepared for  “cold, snowy days and warm, romantic nights,” as The Bachelor episode 9 airs on February 27, 2017.

Say Hello to The Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay

Last week, it was revealed that the 31-year-old attorney from Dallas, Texas would be ABC’s The Bachelorette for season 13. The news came as a surprise to viewers, considering that the gorgeous Rachel had been a frontrunner since the beginning of the show and her electric chemistry with Nick is undeniable. According to Reality Steve, Rachel will be eliminated during the rose ceremony in Finland, but fans needn’t feel bad for her, because she will be busy making history as ABC’s first African-American Bachelorette!

In an interview with People, Rachel admitted, “I was definitely heartbroken over the situation. I didn’t expect it. I didn’t think it would end that way for me. Time heals all. Since then, I’ve been able to get back into work and be with family and friends, I’ve moved on from it. My biggest thing is, I just want Nick to be happy. If he’s found that with someone else, then that makes me happy too.”
