Oh, Bachelor Pad, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways… right after I grab a loofah and scrub off the germs. I swear, just watching this show puts us all at risk of venereal diseases. Bachelor Pad 3 is summer TV at its finest, isn’t it?
As Chris Harrison welcomes us, I realize this puts me at five hours of Chris Harrison for the week. What has my life come to? Perhaps I can find some old reruns of Designer’s Challenge on HGTV just for fun. Thankfully, Chris shifts his focus from true love forever to smutty and disgusting seamlessly, so no time is wasted. Let the train wreck begin!
First,Emily Maynard‘s final four castaway, Chris Bukowski. Chris sits on his leather couch, wearing a jacket and shoes, reflecting on his heartbreak. Are we supposed to believe this is the exact minute Emily kicked him away? Chris “knows” going on the Bachelor Pad will help him move on from Emily. He mentions falling in love, also. He’s funny. Chris is looking forward to meeting Lindzi Cox.
Needless to say, Kalon’s journey on the Bachelorette did not end well. Kalon’s unapologetic ways and big personality, however, make him a perfect fit for Bachelor Pad. Something went right at the Pad, because Kalon agrees! “I’m so glad I did Bachelor Pad. It was like night and day from Bachelorette. I had the most amazing time doing it, and I’m ready for fans to see me in a new light,” Kalon told Celebuzz.
When asked about his experience on Bachelorette, Kalon sings a much different tune. Kalon is not happy about the “bad boy” edit he received.
“I will confirm it, he’s not the Bachelor, we’ve not named anybody to be the Bachelor yet,” the show’s host tells the site.
“We don’t need to, we don’t name anybody so early,” Chris explains. “I love the speculation and that people are talking about our show but we just don’t need to make decisions yet.”
Don’t get him wrong, he loves Roberto. He says, “He is a great guy, I love Roberto. First of all I hear he’s stunningly handsome, and he’s a very nice guy, he has a lot to offer and would be a great Bachelor. I would put my vote behind him but luckily I don’t have a vote.”
It’s Bachelor Pad time, y’all! And ABC has finally released the cheesy bikini shots of the cast members who have given up their public quest for love and instead have decided to embark on a public quest for money. ABC is promising the most controversial season yet. That’s what they always say.

Bachelor Pad 3 premiers July 23 at 8/7c on ABC.
ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT BACHELOR PAD? THOUGHTS ON ADDING THE “SUPER FANS” TO THE LINE-UP?
In a shocking Bachelor Pad twist, Holly Durst andBlake Julian not only fell in love on the show, but they actually got married! Bachelor Pad is like a modern-day (read, classless and trashy) version of Circus of the Stars – it’s all fun and games of the (not so) famous. Bachelor Pad, compared toThe Bachelorette, is less about romantic dates and amazing proposals and more about selling each other and yourself out to get to the cash prize. Holly Durst, winner of season 2 of Bachelor Pad, got both – a romantic proposal and the cash prize.
Holly and Blake got married on June 2nd in South Carolina. Holly talks to Cupid’s Pulse about the very special day and the honeymoon that followed. Holly is settling right into her new life. She says, “I’m so happy! I love married life. It’s just the best!”
Bachelor Pad returns on July 23 on ABC! Which The Bachelor and The Bachelorette rejects will get a second (third, fourth, fifth) chance at finding true love on reality TV? Ha, only if you’re Holly Durst and Blake Julian. More than likely, this ego-heavy cast is more interested in hooking up and collecting the cash prize of $250,000. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I like my TV to be dirty and not too deep.
New twist this season – six hand-selected super fans of the franchise will join the Bachelor Pad fun. Fresh meat!!
Perhaps one of the most self-absorbed contestants is none other than Emily Maynard‘s pariah Kalon McMahon. Kalon, the luxury brand consultant whose preferred mode of transportation is a helicopter, got himself kicked to the curb this week after referring to Emily’s daughter as budget-basement baggage. The comment brought out Emily’s West Virginia hood rat backwoods side, which is the most exciting thing to happen all season. If Kalon can bring personality out of Emily, I’m all for his presence on the Bachelor Pad!
Ladies, just when you thought you could quitThe Bachelor after the mess that was the Ben Flajnik season, ABC throws this in: hottie Roberto Martinez is up for consideration for an upcoming season!
Roberto, who broke up with Ali Fetodowskyafter being engaged to her for about two years is “definitely being considered” but a source tells People magazine that before you get too excited, they also want to see who Emily dumps on this season of The Bachelorette. But there’s no doubt a Roberto season would be a hit. “Obviously there’s a lot about Roberto that is appealing.”
Nobody goes on Bachelor Pad to fall in love and meet their soul mate. Nope, they show up to win money. Well sometimes things don’t go as planned, because this Saturday Bachelor Pad alums Holly Durst and Blake Julian tied the knot!
The couple said “I do” in front of 115 guests at the The Cliffs country club in South Carolina. Holly wore an Alfred Angelo gown, which according to Us Weekly featured: “A dramatic sweetheart neckline, draped bodice (which she customized with a sash), tufted skirt and a sweep train.”
“I couldn’t be happier with my Alfred Angelo wedding dress! It was really hard to choose because there were so many beautiful choices, but I knew I found my dream dress the moment I put it on!,” Holly gushed.
