ABC’s The Bachelor Pad wrapped up filming last week and is set to air beginning August 9.
Does Mike Fleiss have another winner on his hands? Probably. Especially if he can keep stoking the Jake-Vienna break-up flames until then, now that Jake has crossed over to the dark side and joined the Bachelor Pad in its waning few days. He’s going to need one when Ali picks no one at her final rose ceremony. Unless, of course, Ali reunites with one of the guys for the After the Final Rose Show.
As part of a happy couple, Ali can make a lot of money in post-show appearances. By herself, not so much. So don’t rule it out.
As to the Bachelor Pad, I’m still picking Kiptyn and Tenley as the final two. As for who will kicked off early, I’ll say Michelle and David Good. (Now wouldn’t it be something if they hooked up — the two contestants with the biggest psycho-edits since I started watching the show? ) Update 6/30: Reality Steve says the first two kicked off are Michelle and Juan. Go read the rest if you want to know more about who the final four are and if you don’t want to know how it plays out, don’t go there.)
Since they all left LA around the same day, I’m assuming they will be bringing the evicted contestants back to vote for the winner. Another reason why Kiptyn may win, they all seem to like him.
As for pair-ups, here’s what the 20th contestant, Matthue Johnson, had to say after he got canned the morning of filming. And from Reality Steve, look for Elizabeth, “the tease” from Jake’s season (who now is blonde) to heat things up with Jesse from Jillian’s season. Same for Natalie (and I suspect he won’t be the only one she’s drawn to.) I wonder who will find this guy’s tattoos attractive? Here’s a full list of contestants: Continue reading
