I know you all still believe in the power of the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchise to find true love, given as it's happened so often! There are countless examples of how couples have come together, forever, thanks to fairy tale romance, a booze-infused mansion, Chris Harrison, and no hint of the real world. Works every time!
The most recent couple to find a match made in heaven is Emily Maynard and Jef Holm. Oh, who am I kidding? If they can't even bother to keep up the charade, why should I try? These shows are ridiculous, yet I cannot turn away. I am obsessed…and even though some insiders are spilling some of the shows' secrets (and by secrets, I mean exactly what you thought producers were doing behind the scenes), I will still be glued to my television when Emily looks for love for the ninth time.
No one ever likes to admit when they're wrong. It's humbling and very embarrassing…even more so when you're eating crow about the Bachelor franchise. Until I fell for quirky One F Jef Holm on the Bachelorette finale, I was a tried and true Arie Luyendyk Jr. fan. In fact, I loved that Emily Maynard chose Jef because that meant that Arie was still on the market. In addition to reality television, I am also somewhat of a racing fanatic. Weird, I know. Since Carl Edwards is married, I hung all of my hopes on Arie.
Alas, those hopes have been dashed…along with my once Pollyanna-esque views that Arie was a happy-go-lucky, love struck dude who enjoyed awkwardly intense make-out sessions. It turns out my friend (a Sean Lowe fan, go figure) tried to warn me that Arie was just another player, and it seems she was right. Why else would he be caught sucking face with fame harlot Courtney Robertson less than a week after she was able to shake former fiance Ben Flajnik? At least she upgraded in the hair department!
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?”
Can you believe MTV didn't invite Gretchen to perform her new release? Ah, MTV needs a reality TV stars category next year! And to pass out earplugs at the door. Now that would be quality television. Melissa Gorga and Gretchen already have their videos ready to go!
Wait, it just hit me: In Touch had a party and Teresa Giudice wasn't invited? You know, so they could get a photo for their next cover.

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?
