The Hollywood Gossip reports that an inside source for the show divulged that Nick had such a difficult time choosing between the contestants that he relied on show producers to make the decisions for him. 

The source claimed, "Nick had such a hard time making decisions about the women that he literally had producers decide for him ... [They] would have private meetings with Nick before rose ceremonies ... to try and help him pick."

And of course you know they were using the opportunity to drum up controversy for our viewing pleasure. The insider revealed, "They'd actually sway him into letting go of certain girls and keeping others just to spark controversy for the show."
