Rubina Dilaik, who won the title of Bigg Boss 14 winner, had won the ticket to finale task and would have become the first finalist. However, she was nominated for the entire season as a punishment by Bigg Boss for throwing water on Rakhi Sawant out of rage. Hence, she gave that ticket to finale to Nikki Tamboli.
Rubina and Nikki shared a good bond in the show. Also, Nikki helped her to win the task. However, a lot of people called her decision unfair and was not happy with her choosing Nikki as the finalist. Now, in an exclusive interview with SpotboyE.com Rubina has shared the real reason behind it.

"She really worked hard in the show and it's not only I who feel that but people who have watched the entire season, will agree to it. She was the youngest contestant and she had a great understanding about the game. She made sure to be what she is, despite getting so many bashings. She was bashed left right centre. It wasn't easy for her at all. And I understand at that age when so many things are thrown on you and you don't know how to conduct yourself. You have less experience but you managed to reach till there, I salute her courage. So, I wanted to celebrate her courage. And my way of celebrating was to bring her in the finale," said Rubina.

She went on adding, "For such a young girl, it's like juggling into the mud and finally coming out to get noticed. And she has done that. When I look back and see myself when I was 23-year-old, there used to be less confidence, lack of work knowledge, dealing with people's behaviour used to be another thing altogether. And for her, doing a show like Bigg Boss at this age is commendable. I salute that zest she had to be in the show. And if we will not push our younger generations ahead, who else will do it? It was my absolute right and fair decision. Baaki log Bigg Boss show already karke aa chuke the. Kuch logo ke paas career ka experience itna zyada tha. Kuch log apna already ek fandom lekar aaye hain. Ye ladki ne jo bhi kiya hai, scratch se shuru kiya hai. And she has been able to manage it so beautifully. Amongst each one of us, she deserved to be in the finale at any cost."
Whereas Nikki in an exclusive chat with us had credited her destiny for it, "I really don't know what I should say. Mujhe lagta hai finale mein jana meri destiny mein tha. I am a very big believer of destiny. All I would say on this is I love all the fans who supported me in this journey. Either they are my or her fans. I am very thankful to all of them. Because they are the ones that made us what we are today. If Rubina has worked for 12 long years, it was her fans' love which made her who she is. To ye destiny hoti hai aap kahan tak jaate ho aur fans hi hote hain jo aapko ek mukaam tak phauchate hain."
