If you recall Tony proposed to Blakely at the BP3 finale with a $100,000 Neil Lane ring and a tearful Blakeley ecstatically said yes. Blakeley relocated to Portland, OR to live with Tony and his young son and a mere ONE MONTH (that's some Kim Kardashian time!) later the couple has called it quits.
"Unfortunately, things didn't work as we had hoped," Tony told with Wetpaint. "No one is to blame. It just ended up being a lot harder than we expected. I wish her nothing but the absolute best. She deserves total happiness."
Chris Harrisonwelcomes back the Bachelor Pad losers… Ryan "not gettin' any" Hoag, Kalon McMahonandLindzi Cox(cheers), Reid Rosenthal (lukewarm cheer), Jaclyn and Ed, Erica Rose, Jamie Otis (ready for a costume party, absolute silence), Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones (cheers), and Michael Stagliano (huge cheer). Also, the super fans – SWAT, David, Donna, Paige, Brittany, and Erica.
The losers vote for the winning couple of Bachelor Pad 3. Who will it be – Nick and Rachel or Chris and Sarah? And, as always, there's only one prize in Bachelor Pad. <wink, wink>
Chris recently left Chicago (Yay for Chicago!), moved to Maryland (our condolences), and bought a restaurant and bar in Washington, DC. For the eats part of this venture, Wetpaint reports that Chris enlisted the help of Chef Dimitri Moshovitis of Cava and Sugo.
Financial investors include Kalon McMahonandEd Swiderski. How sweet… keeping it in the [dysfunctional] family! Kalon is always good for a laugh. He recently tweeted, “Perhaps dishes named after each of us … Bukow Burger? Ed’s Flying Pickle?”
Last week on Bachelor Pad, Lindzi Cox and Kalon McMahon campaigned to survive the elimination and Jaclyn Swartz and Ed Swiderskistrived to not be seen as a whore and an a**hole, respectively. Both couples failed.
Immediately following last week's rose ceremony, the remaining couples celebrate their final four status. Chris Bukowski toasts, "This is going to be an unbelievable experience that only very lucky desperate and privileged fame seeking people get to experience." His delusions of grandeur have no upper limit.
Rachel Trueheart is completely over Michael Stagliano's elimination. Ha. Just kidding. Rachel continues to cry because her life has no purpose without Michael playing this game beside her. Nick who? seems to be a common confusion in the house.
Blakeley Jones stresses just how much she and Tony Pieper need to win the next challenge. This hardcore "win to survive" edit combined with ABC showing previews of Rachel/Nick Peterson, Jaclyn/Ed, and Sarah Newlon/Chris preparing for the next challenge, lead me to believe Blakeley and Tony are most definitely going home broke losers. ABC sucks at building suspense.
Chris Harrison pops in to remind us how dreamy his eyes are when he wears blue. Chris also comes with bad news for the Pad people – one couple will not survive the morning in Bachelor Pad. Once again, ABC, I can hardly stand the wait. Tony reminds us that he's making out with Blakeley on Bachelor Pad for his son.
Rachel Trueheart is devastated by Michael Stagliano‘s shocking exit on Bachelor Pad. She’s sobbing… she was falling in love with Michael… her life is ruined… blah, blah, blah. Like all other break ups between reality TV stars who have known each other for approximately 18 days, it’s nauseating.
Jaclyn Swartz is busy consoling Rachel when Chris Harrison returns to the mansion with news about the rest of the game. First, though, he reminds the remaining fame whoreslove seekers people that Bachelor Padis a game. Chris explains: They will play the rest of the game as couples. Nick Peterson and Rachel are the only two contestants without partners, so they are forced to pair up.
Blakeley Jones, Jaclyn, and Ed Swiderski are upset that Chris Bukowskisurvived elimination last week, thanks to a bogus twist. Of course, on the other side of Bachelor Pad, Chris and Sarah Newlon are celebrating their good fortune. Game on!
So wait…you’re telling me that finding a spouse on a reality show doesn’t always work? Color me shocked! I do have to admit I had high hopes for the Bachelorette’sEmily Maynard and Jef Holm. Even though getting engaged after living in a jet-setting fantasy world for six weeks may not form the strongest relationship, I feel that One F has such a good head on his broad shoulders that perhaps these two crazy kids could work.
In spite of cheating rumors that were confirmed by Jef’s brother, the pair still claims to be going strong. The couple has been out and about in Charlotte kissing and holding hands for every photog in town. However, could it be a case of protesting too much?
Michael Stagliano has been a Bachelor Pad mainstay for two seasons now, winning last year’s with ex-fiance Holly Durst and starting out strong in Bachelor Pad 3. Well, all that changed Monday night when his plotting, scheming, and manipulating encountered a vindictive Chris Bukowski (who are the people that find him attractive again?) and a crazy Erica Rose!
In a new blog for Parade, Michael discusses his elimination and shockingly takes accountability for his actions. He also discusses Chris‘ potentially game damaging actions of taking Erica into the voting room with him!
Michael co-signs that everyone was on board with Chris and by default SarahNewlon being eliminated at the start of the episode following his ploy the week before to get Blakely Jones voted out.
Oh the twists and turns of last night’s Bachelor Pad. I have to admit, with the exception of predicting a camping date, I had it all wrong…
Blakely Jones is so thrilled that her alliance had her back. I wonder if she’ll ever realize they weren’t keeping her around because they like her, it’s because five-star crazy is fun to watch, and they know she’ll never win. Chris Bukowski crawls into his top bunk and burrows under his covers. Jamie Sarah Newlon comes to his bed and starts baby-talking to him. He’s pouting sleeping. Chris reluctantly lets girl number three crawl into his bunk.
Kalon McMahon walks into the bedroom, and Chris wants to know why his buddy lied to his face. Chris demolishes a rose and throws the petals at Kalon. “How romantic,” coos Kalon, “Must be how you won Emily.” Ouch. With that Chris hops out of bed to go confront Ed Swiderski, leaving Sarah looking a lot like Jamie last week. Ed says he’s more loyal to Jaclyn Swartz than he is to Chris. When Ed raises his voice to be heard over Chris, Chris starts screaming to talk like an adult. He’s something else, isn’t he? I hope Sarah is picking up these red flags. Ed can’t apologize anymore, so he’s out…and a wine glass gets smashed in the process. Mazel Tov!
