Nicki Sterling was sent home to Texas after falling in love on The Bachelor.

While Lindzi Cox and Courtney Robertson made it to the finale, Nicki and Kacie Boguskie were given the pink slip despite strong connections with Ben Flajnik.

The 26-year-old dental hygienist says she's "still in the process of getting over it," and has plenty to say about skinny-dipping, her elimination and the final two.

Excerpts from Nicki Sterling's recent interview with People below:

Nicki Sterling and Ben Flajnik

On not getting a rose: "I was blindsided. Each time we were together, I felt more confident. It's hard to say who I thought was going home, [but not] me."

On what went wrong: "Hearing him refer to me as the "dark horse" let me know he enjoyed my company but didn't have a strong connection until the end."

On Chris Harrison calling their relationship "immature": "I love Chris but I don't agree. Our relationship was mature. We talked about important things."

"We had deep talks. I wasn't one to beg for reassurance. I tried to make our moments both meaningful and playful. Those two things are important in a relationship."

On getting closure: "I heard what I needed to get closure. I didn't need to hear nice things. I'm a firm believer that everything in life happens for a reason."

Kacie Boguskie did what she (or the producers) had to do.

That's how she explains traveling all the way to Switzerland just to "warn" Ben Flajnik about Courtney Robertson on last week's episode of The Bachelor.

With Southern charm, bright eyes and a big heart, it was easy to see why so many people fell in love with Kacie B. and were rooting for her over Court.

Alas, Ben was not one of those people.

Speaking with reporters about her hometown date gone awry, her trip to Europe and if she thinks Ben Flajnik and his fiancee will last, she had this to say:

On her elimination: "I definitely didn't think it was me. When it got down to one rose, I thought that Nicki would be going home. I was shocked."

On why she went to Switzerland after getting axed: "Initially, I was not going there in search of a second chance. I really wanted closure."

"I had to make my peace about Courtney, because I care. Of course, there was a little part of me that hoped he'd be like, "I made a mistake. Stay."

On why she cares so much about Courtney: "I have a problem with somebody who has two sides, because I don't know which is really you."

"She was manipulating – I'm not sure who she manipulated more, us or him."

Courtney Robertson, the controversial finalist on The Bachelor, has shocked more than just fans by trying on wedding dresses in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

Nicki Sterling, who was eliminated this week, is beside herself as well.

Sterling is "positively shocked" by the photos, and the implication that Robertson, a season-long source of Bachelor drama will get Ben Flajnik's final rose.

"I'd have to chew on that for a while," Sterling tells People. "I don't even know. I'm kind of shocked right now. I'm sorry, wow, my mouth is open right now."

There's always the possibility that the attention-loving Courtney Robertson was merely putting on a publicity stunt of sorts. Or maybe she was "modeling"!

"I would hope and pray that is not the case," Sterling says of a possible stunt by Court. "There are no words to describe how horrible that would be."

"I mean, somebody's heart is on the line."

"Not just somebody's, but Ben who I care deeply about. I cannot believe anybody - even as manipulative as Courtney - would take it that far. I would hope not."

Only time (and perhaps some more hinting on Court's part, or The Bachelor spoilers if you're into that sort of thing and believe them) will tell.

Didn't see this coming: The Bachelor's polarizing finalist, Courtney Robertson, was seen trying on wedding dresses at a Mark Zunino bridal store in Beverly Hills.

Maybe a dress is just a dress? Or a cry for attention? Or a carefully coordinated, hilarious staged photo op to quell rumors that she wins and they already split?

Who knows, but Ben Flajnik selected Courtney and Lindzi Cox as his final two on this Monday's episode, with Robertson the odds-on favorite to win on March 12.

You can read The Bachelor spoilers we've posted for what we think goes down, but Ben's infatuation with her (and these pics) speak for themselves:

  • Hot Courtney Robertson Picture
  • Courtney Robertson, Wedding Dress
  • Courtney Robertson Wedding Dress Shopping

Whether she's skinny-dipping, saying "winning" every five seconds, name-dropping her profession ("modeling!") or staging a mock wedding on her hometown date in Arizona, Courtney Robertson has been as aggressive as she is reviled.

Maybe she's just "modeling" right here?

Lindzi Cox fans sure hope so. After the penultimate episode of the season, Ben said he felt "truly felt in love" with her, so perhaps there's reason for optimism.

Perhaps. Or maybe not. Doubtful.

Everyone is just assuming Courtney Robertson wins The Bachelor.

Heck, Us Weekly's new cover story blatantly states that Ben Flajnik proposed to the model - a claim that we won't find out for sure until Monday, March 12.

The Bachelor spoilers have a lot to say on that very subject, but because they have been wrong before, you have to treat this as what it is: Pure speculation.

Not that it's hard to believe. According to Us, Flajnik gets down on one knee on the season finale, but has since soured on his final rose recipient/fiancee.

Ben Flajnik Us Cover

The celebrity news magazine claims that:

  • Ben was "caught" with three girls in one weekend ... which likely means he was hanging out with other women and photographed with them. Seeing that Ben's unable to go near Courtney (or Lindzi Cox), that's not a shock.
  • He's embarrassed by Courtney Robertson (that part we can believe, given that he's gotten to watch the entire season of The Bachelor along with us).
  • Courtney cries on the Women Tell All special (that too).

Us' new issue, out today, will surely reveal more vague, unsourced details of his alleged transgressions, but until then, tell us: Who you THINK he SHOULD pick?

Despite Nicki's and Kacie B.'s best efforts on last night's episode, Courtney Robertson won a spot on The Bachelor season finale alongside Lindzi Cox.

Who will he propose to March 12, Lindzi or Courtney? Does the former have any chance against the Black Widow, or is she destined for heartbreak?

The Bachelor spoilers page on THG has all the latest on that subject, but judging by comments Ben himself made in his weekly blog, it's a toss-up.

The rose-giver told People the following:

Lindzi Cox and Ben Flajnik

On Lindzi: "She is always up for anything, and that is a really attractive quality. Speaking of attractive, sometimes I'm awestruck when looking at Lindzi."

"I find her to be so beautiful, even when I put her in a helmet and harness and dangle her from a rope. Lindzi also started to open up to me even more."

"I know it's hard for her and she likes to go for the joke before the serious moment, but I also want to be married to someone who I can have those serious discussions with and a woman who will tell me how she really feels."

"The last few weeks, Lindzi has been doing that."

"For the first time, I truly feel I am in love with this woman and was looking forward to dinner and seeing if she was feeling the same way."

After emotional hometown dates, The Bachelor jetted off to Switzerland for the penultimate episode of the season (the Women Tell All special is next week).

Nicki Sterling, Lindzi Cox and Courtney Robertson vied for the final two roses doled out by Ben Flajnik ... as did another familiar face in a non-shocking return.

Could Kacie Boguskie cajole her way back into the mix?

  • Lindzi Cox Picture
  • Ben Flajnik Picture
  • Courtney Robertson Picture

Clearly contrived time-filling plot twists aside, Courtney preemptively shifted into damage control mode and Lindzi made her case as the season's dark horse.

Yes, we went with a horse joke there. Again. Too easy.

Who made the final two heading into the March 12 finale? Were The Bachelor spoilers right, or did Ben pull a surprise? Here's THG's +/- Bachelor recap:

Nicki Sterling, the dark horse of the competition, seems like a very cool girl, but it also seems like she's trying a bit too hard to force the issue. Minus 5.

Not in like an aggressive Courtney way, so Plus 8, but sort of in the sense that she's trying to force feelings and a stronger connection in a limited time.

Does Chris Harrison not sign the fantasy suite card anymore? Minus 10.

Courtney Robertson allegedly appears on The Bachelor: Women Tell All special this season, according to reports. Why is this noteworthy for Bachelor fans?

Because the Women Tell All episode, which airs March 5, but was taped Friday in L.A., has never featured either of the girls in the following week's finale.

Does that mean Courtney Robertson gets bounced this Monday? Or did the show make a special exception to bring out a finalist because, well, it's her?

Getting Faux Hitched

According to insiders and The Bachelor spoilers we have read, analyzed, maintained and posted throughout this winter ... they made an exception for her.

Courtney has been the center of so much controversy all season long - she's pretty much the reason for the show at this point - they felt they had to.

It's true. Giving Court a chance to square off with the other women (or vice versa) could make for amazing television. They probably hate her more now!

Back when all the drama was taking place during filming, they hadn't even seen her confessionals, with some of the best quotes (see highlight reel below).

Specifically, Court's main nemesis, Emily O'Brien, should give her an earful.

The Bachelor returns tomorrow night as Robertson, Lindzi Cox and Nicki Sterling vie for the final two spots in the March 12 season finale. Stay tuned.

Monday on The Bachelor, Courtney Robertson is on the hot seat ... again. Only this time, it's to assuage Ben Flajnik, not just to start drama with other girls.

Regarding her treatment of the other women, which has obviously been awful (to say the least) this winter, how does the 28-year-old model respond?

By lying and playing the victim, of course:

Feeling a bit desperate, Courtney tries to pull Ben aside for some one-on-one time to come clean about her relationship with the other women in the house ... sort of.

"I tried really hard to be nice with [the other women], but that's a really unique situation for me," she says in the sneak preview clip seen above.

"I'd say something and they'd jump on me. I had my guard up."

Little does Ben Flajnik know, however, Robertson said more than a few hurtful things. Some of which can be seen in the 53-minute highlight reel below:

The Bachelor contestant Courtney Robertson may not be a fan favorite.

That's the understatement of all time, actually, but her ex-boyfriend, Cavan Clark says that in real life, she's different from how she appears on the series.

Cavan says that "unlike what you see on the show, she's actually a nice girl, and getting a bad rap" based on the show's editing and media coverage.

Not sure how a 53-minute trash talk montage can be explained away, but good to hear! Seriously though. 53 minutes, not including Monday's episode:

"I still keep in touch with Courtney," he adds. "We dated, and after it ended she went on The Bachelor. Life happens; people fall in love and people break up."

The two met and fell in love while Courtney Robertson, 28, was modeling for one of the fashion lines Cavan Clark, a 36-year-old photographer, shoots for.

He does say Courtney is doing everything in her power to get the final rose ... and reading between the lines, that she might not be motivated by love.
