Wow, talk about a fiery finale! The wrath of the women comes down on Chris, Blakeley and Tony just might live happily ever after and Rachel is devastated not once but twice. Read on for all the details!

Chris Harrison sits down with the cast to talk about the season and find out where people stand. Immediately, the drama begins.

Lindzi and Kalon are still dating, yet Erica tells Lindzi she should be careful since she’s seen Kalon around town with different women and knows he was in Houston with his ex-girlfriend.

Michael says, “did I go onto Bachelor Pad three looking for a wife? No, because it’s Bachelor Pad.” He also reveals that while he enjoyed making out, hanging out and sleeping with Rachel, he ‘didn’t think there was enough there to continue the relationship.’

Meanwhile, in romance news, Blakeley says, “Tony lifted a weight off my shoulders and made everything okay….I don’t know what I did to deserve someone like him.” She says she’s ‘never had anyone make me feel like this’ and reveals she’s in love with Tony.

Tony, “I came out with the best thing I could ever ask for…..I’m madly in love with this girl” The couple reveals they’re moving in together–Blakeley’s headed to Portland. And then, drumroll please…..Tony asks Blakeley to marry him and she says, ‘absolutely!’

Then the four remaining couples take the stage. Rachel talks about her relationship with Michael. “I was falling in love with Michael.” She says he was so into her on the show and that he hadn’t felt like this since his last relationship. However, once he got off show he was distant and cold. Michael said he wasn’t falling in love and didn’t want to continue a long distance relationship. Rachel says, she was “crushed when I heard Michael was dating someone else the whole time.”

Chris says it was tough for him to watch the triangle with Jamie and Blakeley . His family was really disappointed in him. Jamie says, “Emily was wise to see right through you and you wouldn’t have been a good father to Ricki.”

Jaclyn asks Rachel why she didn’t fight to keep her. Rachel says she fought tooth and nail, but ultimately Nick says they would have a better chance of winning by keeping Chris and Sarah in the final.

The cast then writes down their picks for which couple they want to win. Nick and Rachel win the vote.

Deliberation begins. Nick and Rachel are lead to private rooms where they must decide what to do with the money. If both choose “share,” they share the money, if both choose “keep,” the money is split between the castmates and if one picks “share” and the other picks “keep,” the one who choses “keep” gets the money.

Nick reveals he’s played the game alone, no one believed in him, not even Rachel and he opts to keep the money and therefore keep all the money!

Rachel is floored and devastated and tells Nick he’s ‘disgusting’. Nick could care less and leaves the show even though Rachel pleads with him for an explanation.

Heartless!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Nick played the game well? Or should he have split the money? Sound off below

ok for one nick was in the finale because of rachel if you recall they were gonna vote nick off with they voted kalon and lindzi off but didnt because of rachel and nick did not get there by winning he said it himself when they won the singing contest that he has never won a challenge in bachlor pad or on the bacherlotte the only reason he got there is because he stayed out of the drama and everybody forgot he was there i didnt even kno he was there til he partnered with rachel

Yeah but if they had a target on them in the first place it was because of Rachael. NOONE was trying to get nick out until he partnered with her and she was all over the place wanting to leave ANYWAY.

Duh Nick should have won! That’s how you play the game. It’s about winning $250,000 not catching a man or woman. This dumb Rachel couldn’t spot real love of it was a birth mark.

great decision

((clap clap clap)) you did well, nick! I would have done the same in your shoes. Kalon was right, none of them “deserved” to win. It was a game. Nick played a good game, under the radar and soared in the last challenge. Girls on this show get way too emotional and lose their heads. Rachel lost it.

Totally agree. Loved it…Nick had guts to do what he did and he was one hundred percent right. I was boringly watching the finale listening to all the crying and whining and about to throw up when out of the blue this happens and I think “Okay, one more season please”. LOVED IT
-Perfect-go Nick! It is a game-not who gets the most one night stands.

I don’t think nick played the game at all. He was a bump on a log and he thought he did so much and won it all on his own. The housemates have said that more than once. Nick’s not smart enough to win the game. He just lucked out. I think he’s a selfish bastard.

While I don’t care for Nick anyway, I don’t personally think he owes Rachel anything. She didn’t want to be there with him anyways, and there are many circumstances which in the end did put them together.

I am so proud of you Nick!! You played the game in stealth mode like no one ever! I think this season of Bachelor Pad is epic! I loved every episode and your right, no one ever saw you coming! Rachel is sweet and my heart goes out to her. She’s kind and deserves good things in life. May God bless her sweet naive nature. Cheers my friend! You did it right!

I feel bad for Rachel, but we all knew Nick will take the money, He said it right, Rachel wanted to leave but it was Mike telling her to stay, Nicks input was meaningless to her. Plus she even said that the money wasn’t important bc she had found love(at the time)

oh please, in his shoes you woudlnt do the same??? he barely knows rachel, he played a good game by staying under the radar and in the end he did what most of us would do. yes he got lucky, but when you play the lottery is luck that gets you the millions, not strategy or game play. good job nick. well done, well deserved

she did it to jaclyn now it's done to her

everyone single person entered the game to win, and each person (but nick) got that chance taken away by another player. rachel is no different! she took jaclyn’s chance away from her, and nick took hers. it’s no different! that’s the game. nick played it right, and did what everyone else wished they could have pulled off!!

You hope he dies? I really felt Nick was wrong and kind of a pig for doing that to Rachel, but really don’t want to wish death on anyone…A little harsh don’t you think.

If I was in Nick’s shoes I don’t believe I would make the same decision. Though at the end of the day it’s game and he played well.
Nice play Nick.

Uggghhhh!!! I knew he was a coniever when he insisted (rightly, as a strategy), but so coldly & heartlessly, that they take Chris & Sara to the finals. He vehemently insisted that Rachel disregard her friendship no matter how it made her feel. Right then & there, I could tell he didn’t give a crap about people. He was out for the money, & out for Nick! Especially, given that last bit of info that he had promised Rachel he would share the money with her. What a GREEDY & unconscionable & dispicable person he is. Sick, no feeling F**K!!!!!!!!

You know why Nick didn’t deserve to win.. because this is a reality show. we watch it to be entertained.. he simply was not entertaining and his strategy of laying low (if that was a strategy at all) simply made him boring! So as far as who deserves to win.. i would say it is the person who can be the most entertaining without being so evil.. with that being said Rachel did not deserve to win either cos Michael is the one who got her there.. to start with!

I think he got his revenge against all the snobs who thought they controlled the game and were the “popular group” who ignored and used the ones whom they felt were invisible. Why didn’t he “deserve” to be there? Remember these are the same people who looked down their noses at the fans whom they felt didn’t deserve to be there. Like they are all that! They were just people looking for love who got rejected. Yet they felt it made them better than the fans. They might be physically attractive, but their true character was displayed for all to see quite an ugly side. So, why be surprised that Nick took the money for himself. He had no loyalty to a group who treated him like ****, his final partner included.

Shame on you

Posted at 11:38 PM on September 10, 2012  

Nick is a greedy, selfish, corrupt, unethical & disgraceful human being. He should have shared the money with Rachel because she had the friendships in the house to get the votes. As he stated, “I had no one.” Now, I understand why no one liked him! “A man reaps what he sows!”

All we heard all season and throughout the whole final episode was that Nick didn’t deserve to be there. However, the strategy of laying low, not making waves, and being nice to people is a strategy- and it worked to perfection. Yet the people who naturally decided they got to be top dogs without considering anyone else, the “cool people,” refused to acknowledge that. They were beat at their own game. It was a game. He played it his way. NO ONE in that room really deserves money for being on a reality show, let’s face it people. Way to go Nick!!!

Nick is a scumbag. It will be very surprising if he’s not roundly criticized back in Tampa by those he encounters. Hopefully, he will lose clients in his personal training business. When he has blown through what is left after taxes, it’s likely he’ll be worse off financially than he was prior to going on the show. Let’s hope that the news organizations keep the public apprised of his activities.

Oh, give me a break. Get over yourself. He was an outsider who won. Give the guy some credit. Everyone else in the cast, Rachel included, felt all “entitled” to the money, and that’s obnoxious. For once, the outsider won, and the “cool kids” can’t admit it.

And sorry, but he’ll be better off financially. What a dumb comment.

OK Listen up people! It’s a G A M E! The Giants don’t share wins with the Steelers, Ali didn’t split his purse with Fraser. Every single person knew the rules. Every person played by the rules, which included lying. What they didn’t do, or Rachel namely, was consider Nick a worthy competitor, and completely disrespected him as an opponent. And then Nick WON.

He doesn’t need to explain himself. He won the game. It’s self explanatory. He’s not evil, and doesn’t deserve people’s curses. He played the game better and he won. It’s really that simple.

Why hate on Nick for doing what everyone else wished they could have done? No one DESERVES a quarter of a million dollars. And sharing the win isn’t mandatory. Rachel learned some good lessons about love and trust.

Some would say such lessons are PRICELESS.

The singing contest,put the winner in the finals,It wasn’t Nick who won this,The Judges made it plain,why Nick and Rachel did”,her singing”.I guess he forgot this.But when all is said and done,she will make his win look like It fell out of a piggybank..her beauty and popularity,should bring some great things for her….Let’s sit back and watch.I can understand ,why no one wanted to be his partner, he Is a snake,and stayed hidden under a rock,until the right time came to slither out and bite.. I wonder how he thought he could win alone,she was the only one left to partner with,unless he had an invisible.girl stashed away somewhere….
Go Rachel!!! can’t wait to see all the good things waiting for you…….

@Gerri. Rachel is not that beautiful. She’s only 27 and her face looks much older. She also needs braces. She has no self esteem and is a cry baby. Who wants to see her again. Don’t these women get it, they sleep with these guys and then the guys aren’t interested anymore. Well they gave it away? No real relationship just a couple of weeks living in a house. They are needy, lack self esteem, and look like whores who cry about it later on tv.
