Tensions rise and alliances crumble as the grand prize looms nearer. Plus, a Bret Michaels cameo!
Last night's show started out with "High-Pitched Kasey" vowing to kick Jake to the curb. Will he succeed? Ask again in two hours. But first—a challenge! Aptly called "Target On Your Back," each lady was asked a question, which they got to answer via throwing a paint-filled egg at a dude. Chris Harrison threw out hard-hitting questions like: "Who do you want to see go home this week?" You can guess who got pelted with that answer. (Here's a hint: It was Jake.)
Under the thinly veiled premise of scoring a second shot at love and a chance to win $250,000, the sh*tshow known as "Bachelor Pad" is back for Season 2. In a THREE HOUR (yes, three hour) season premiere, we meet the contestants as they slither out of a stretched limo and into the mansion. Roll call! Let's meet the meatheads and femme fatales.
So, remember before when we said we were on Vienna Girardi's side, after a charmless Jake Pavelka generally acted like a tool and made her cry on their Bachelor reunion interview? Well, we take that back. The reason we're back to hating Vienna? We've discovered that, right before she began filming The Bachelor, Vienna asked her then-boyfriend to marry her! RadarOnline is reporting that Vienna told live-in boyfriend Brian Lee Smith...
Episodes of The Bachelorette tend to be "the most shocking and dramatic yet"—thanks, Jake and Vienna—so we revel in the hometown dates episodes, which lean sweet rather than shocking. This week, on The Bachelorette, we got the hometown dates. Although Ali assured her bachelors that her decision had nothing to do with their families, we can't help but think that had Kirk's father been an avid coin collector instead, Kirk's chances of being in the final three might not have been so slim. Watching Ali's tearful goodbye, we got to thinking: how much can you tell about a significant other by meeting their family?
Last night, we flipped on TV to watch a fight and a Bachelor reunion broke out. *Ba-dum-bum* The only winner in Monday night's verbal slug-fest between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi was ABC. The rating-grabbing interview didn't help endear either D-lister to the public—although if we have to pick sides, we'll wave the flag for Team Vienna. It seems to be a popular choice.
Learn from the Jake and Vienna post-Bachelor interview: in the case of a he said/she said breakup, don’t say anything at all. When a relationship ends, it's natural to want to mention your loser ex to whoever will listen, but it may not necessarily be for the best. The following are some lies you might tell yourself to defend your trash-talkin', and our reasons why you should stop, drop the issue and simply walk away.
The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi said they wanted "privacy" to deal with their breakup. But we don't think that word means what they think it means, because the former TV lovebirds are in the midst of a very public "he said/she said" war, dominating the headlines with conflicting tales of who dumped who and why.
Well, that was fast. Only a few months after giving her his final rose and proposing on one knee, the latest Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, and his fiancee, Vienna Girardi, have already broken-up and called off their engagement. According to X17, No reason was given for the split, but considering the rumors about Vienna's past, including possible secret marriages and topless modeling, as well as the fact that Jake has been milking his 15 minutes for all their worth with appearances on Dancing With the Stars and Drop Dead Diva, we're not surprised that it didn't last.
Oh, we may have to agree with the immortal words of The Bachelor host Chris Harrison: last night was, indeed, the most dramatic rose ceremony yet. The season finale dawned with Jake the Pilot and his two lady loves—has any man since Bill Henrickson so often proclaimed to love so many women at the same time?—still sunning themselves and occasionally weeping on the island paradise of St. Lucia. But there are others afoot, specifically, Jake's family. Yes, his mom, dad and a passel of rowdy, blonde brothers and their wives are flown in to meet/judge the remaining women.
This week, bachelor Jake took his remaining three ladies—Tenley, Gia and Vienna—to St. Lucia for the most amazing romantic getaway ever. Monday's promos promised a shocking twist, with past contestant Ali calling Jake and saying she'd made a huge mistake. As you might remember, the San Francisco girl was issued an ultimatum by her employer: come back now or lose your job.
