Two months ago, ABC announced the cast of Bachelor in Paradise. But… shocker! They didn’t give us the full scoop. At the time, I agreed with Reality Steve, who said there were definitely more cast members to be revealed.
There simply weren’t enough of the Bachelorand Bachelorette fame whores we’ve all come to appreciate. Or something. Well, ABC has since revealed the entire cast list, as well as details on how the new reality show will work.
Per ABC: “Bachelor in Paradise begins with 14 former cast members, eight women and six men, who travel to beautiful Tulum, Mexico hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing. However, in true Bachelor fashion, there is always a surprise.”
Is Chris Bukowski in love with this season Bachelorette or is he just in love with being on the Bachelor franchise? Despite what he says, I'm going to go with the latter. First, he was a contestant on Emily Maynard's season. Next, he made the rounds (literally) on Bachelor Pad. Now, Chris is garnering attention for crashing the first cocktail party of Andi Dorfman's season.
Claiming he camped outside the mansion for a week (I don't buy it, ABC), Chris Harrison announced upon Chris' arrival, "We have a party crasher. He's been on the show before." And I'm sure he'll be on it again. And again and again and again.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
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.
The craziness of the Bachelor Pad never fails to disappoint. While the resident good girl from Boring Gray Flannel McGee's season seems to have found love with the baggage hating (unless its Louis Vuitton) bad guy, it makes me wonder, do opposites really attract?
According to sources the answer is no. The very tan sweetheart Lindzi Cox has been seen canoodling with resident playboy bad guy Kalon McMahon, but did they outlast the insanity of the Bachelor Pad's third season?
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!
