As for the runner-up, she reportedly professes her love, not knowing that she would end up not getting the rose.
Having been rejected before, Nick knows how the runner-up feels. "He could relate to the woman he was sending home more than the woman chosen," says the so-called insider. "Nick had empathy for her. ... It was hard for him to let her go because it hit so close to home."
