On Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 31-year-old attorney revealed that it wasn't her decision to leave the show. "He let me go. I was shocked," Rachel admitted. "I thought Nick and I had a connection. I was pretty heartbroken."
When asked what it was like to compete with so many women for one man, Rachel confessed, "It's different. It's not the typical way that I like to date a man. It was something different for me to try."
She also coyly told Ellen that she “maybe” knows who ends up with Nick’s final rose.
The new reality star then came to the defense of Bachelor villain, Corinne Olympios. "I love Corinne," she shared. "You only get to see some sides of Corinne. I saw all sides."
Rachel begins filming The Bachelorette in March, and does have an idea of what she's looking for when choosing a potential husband. "I don't have a physical type except a great smile," she shared, adding that she wants a guy who makes her laugh and wants to start a family. "I'm really just looking for a guy who's secure, confident and knows exactly what it is that he wants."
