Has the Bachelor Padcreated yet another real like couple? That answer is yes!
Following their on screen flirting, it seems Gia Allemandand ABC resident bad boy Wes Hayden are now officially a couple.
The duo, pictured above on Friday at Melanie Segal’s MTV VMA Retreat in Beverly Hills, California, expressed their fondness for one another on the show with Wes even proclaiming his love for Gia. However, things could not go any further as Gia had a boyfriend at the time.
The two then reunited during the Wednesday taping of the show’s finale and reunion. With Gia now being single, it seems they are giving things a go. According to RadarOnline, Gia and Wes “were acting like a couple,” Friday night at the Voyeur nightclub.
“They were whispering in each others ears and smiling a lot,” says a source. “At one point, Gia grabbed Wes’ arm and pulled him close for a kiss. They were holding hands for most of the night and disappeared together at about 1:30 am.”
The finale of the Bachelor Pad airs tonight, and host Chris Harrison tells Zap2it that fans will be in for a big surprise. Coming up in tonight’s finale, Dancing With The Stars pro dancer Edyta Sliwinska makes a cameo appearance when she teaches Jesse Kovacs how to dance, much to the dismay of Jesse’s crazy pants girlfriend Elizabeth Kitt. Jesse and Elizabeth are still dating by the way.
The final six includes Tenley & Kyptin, Natalie & Dave, and Elizabeth & Jesse. The finale episode airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
E! News reported weeks ago that the former Bachelorette contestant was hesitant about doing the show, citing that Chris no longer wanted to be on television.
The show host Chris Harrison is now speaking out and tells PEOPLE magazine Lambton has yet to completely rule out the offer.
“There’s an ongoing dialogue,” Harrison tells PEOPLE. “I was just with him this weekend in North Carolina and we talked about the show … it may be right for him, but it may not be.”
Harrison admits only Chris knows what is best for him. “You have to take aside the clamoring of millions of fans [who] want him to be the Bachelor just because they [want] to wish him well,” Harrison says. “But they don’t necessarily know what’s right for him or what’s right for the show.”
In other news, engaged Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky continues to talk about her dream wedding, you know, the wedding that will likely never happen when you take into account the extremely high failure rate of Bachelor couples.
But perhaps things will be different for Ali and her fiance Roberto Martinez. When it comes to her wedding dress, Ali tells UsWeekly, “I’m leaning towards Monique Lhuillier. I like her. I like the flowiness of her dresses.”
And it seems Ali is aware of the low success rate of Bachelor(ette) couples, but she states she and Roberto are very devoted to each other. The two have even recently moved in together in LA. “We don’t even think of it like ‘are we going to make it a month? Are we going to make it six months?'” she said. “When we’re talking about doing things, we’re like ‘babe, we have the rest of our lives, that can wait, we can do that later, we have out whole lives.’ We’re going to make it!”
The highly talked about Bachelor Pad is set to premiere tonight on ABC at 8 P.M./ET.
The show will feature 19 Bachelor and Bachelorette alums as they try to find love and win money at the same time. The lone winner of the show will end up walking away with $250,000.
In tonight’s premiere, the contestants will arrive separately via limousine to greet co-host Chris Harrison, the other host is Melissa Rycroft. They are unaware of who else is on the show and according to UsWeekly, and weatherman Jonathan is not happy to see his nemesis Craig M.
On more of the premise of the show – there will be a competition in each episode and the winner of each competition gets a rose and he/she gets to pick three people to go on a date with. During the date, the winner will hand out a rose to someone, and that person is then safe from elimination. One guy and one girl will be ousted each week.
While the competition aspect sounds interesting enough, the juicy part of the show comes in form of the hooks ups amongst the cast members, and there are reportedly lots and lots of it! As for what to expect tonight and this season in terms of hooking up, and not who wins the competion. Some spoilers are below -
Elizabeth Kitt (Bachelor: Jake) is in love with Jesse Kovacs (Bachelorette: Jillian), but the feeling isn’t mutual, and when Jesse K tells her they should just be friends while doing the show, she threatens to have her girlfriends in the house vote him out.
In the premiere episode, Natalie Getz (Bachelor: Jason) and Jesse Beck (Bachelorette: Ali) strike up a quick romance and are quickly seen making out all over the house, thus making them a target to be split up by the other contestants.
Nikki Kaapke (Bachelor: Jason) and Juan Barbiere (Bachelorette: Jilian) are said to have dated off the show with things not ending well between the two, which will likely lead to some show drama.
Star magazine also gives these juicy tidbits about the show’s cast -
Gia & Wes: She may have a boyfriend back home, but that didn’t stop Jake Pavelka’s castoff from locking lips — a lot — with the aspiring country singer (from Jillian Harris’ season). “She was smitten,” says an insider.
David & Jessie: When it came to the ladies, he was like a kid in a candy store! David, who was also dumped by Jillian, hooked up with both Natalie and Jessie. “He’ll do anything to get ahead in the game,” says the insider.
Tenley & Kiptyn: The temperature spiked in the hot tub when these two and things “got really steamy” one night, says the insider. “I’m pretty sure Tenley fell in love with him, but Kiptyn is such a player.”

This season finale of “The Bachelorette” is set to air tonight, in what ABC is touting as an ending that has never happened in the Bachelorette history.
Ali Fedotowskyis now left with her two finalists, Chris Lambton, a 33-year-old landscaper from Cape Cod, and Roberto Martinez, a 26-year-old insurance agent from Charleston, both of whom will be meeting her family in tonight’s episode. Ali will spend her final date with Roberto jet skiing, swimming and picnicking, while her date with Chris L. is described as emotional and taking a surprising turn.
And for the first time in the past few Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons, the finale results have not been leaked. Even Bachelor show insider RealitySteve.com had admitted he does not know how the show ends this season.
This has of course led to a ton of rumors and speculation about what Ali will do tonight. The most popular one is that Ali will pick no one, which has never happened in the Bachelorette history. The other speculation is that Ali will pick one of the guys, and then propose to the winner.
There are also conflicting media reports, which only leads to more confusion regarding Ali’s final choice. UsWeekly is reporting Ali is engaged to one of her finalists, and is planning her wedding while Star magazine is reporting this week that Ali was seen flirting with NFL Quarterback Matt Leinart, even giving him her phone number.
While we all continue to speculate on the ending, one rumor that has been debunked is the one about the newly single Jake Pavelka coming back next season as the show’s Bachelor. The show’s host Chris Harrisontells E! Online, “No. Never. [Laughs.] That will never happen. Not with me as a host anyway,” when asked about the possibility of Jake returning.
When it comes to tongiht’s ending, Chris says, “People will be surprised. Whether it’s good or not, Ali’s happy with it and she’s sticking by it. It’ll be interesting. I really just want to sit back and watch the fan reactions, what the comments are and how they feel it all played out.”
And as for Ali, well let’s just say she’s not giving anything away, only saying she is happy with her decision.
What is certain is that the finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC, immediately followed by “After the Final Rose.”
TELL US – WHO DO YOU THINK ALI WILL PICK? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE TONIGHT?
The ‘Men Tell All‘ reunion of the Bachelorette is set to air tonight on ABC, during which Ali Fedotowsky will be forced to face all the contestants she eliminated this season.
So what can we expect tonight? This seems to be the big question as the most memorable and most controversial contestants from this season will be absent from tonight’s show. Three timing douche Justin Rego, and heart-breaker Frank Neuschaefer did not attend the taping. Also not in attendance are finalists Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton. Even the controversial Craig McKinnon was not in attendance.
While Justin did not attend the taping, as he has claimed in the past that the Bachelorette producers gave him a bad edit, his absence did not stop the other guys from bashing him.
“The guy is evil. He wanted to make it to the final three and sabotage everything she wanted to do,” Craig R. tells host Chris Harrison. “I am speaking for each one of you right now that none of us feel we want to continue any ongoing friendship with him.”
ContestantTy Brown, who is rumored to be in the running to be the next Bachelor, also brings up the fact that Justin received the most votes the very first night when the guys voted him as the one who was there for the wrong reason, saying, “How could 25 guys be wrong?” Weatherman Jonathan Novack also gets ganged up on tonight, as the guys scold him for not being forthcoming when Craig M. asked who had ratted him out to Ali as “dangerous.”
In other Bachelorette news, PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Kirk DeWindt, who was eliminated by Ali after making it to the final 4, has since moved on.
According to PEOPLE, Kirk is now dating Jessie Sulidis, who competed with Ali for Jake Pavelka’s heart during the former season of the Bachelor.
The two reportedly met during an after party for the July 17th taping of the Men Tell All, during which they exchanged numbers and a kiss. Kirk is said to be driving to Canada this weekend to visit Jesse and a source tells the mag “he is definitely over Ali!” Jesse will also be appearing on the upcoming Bachelor Pad.
The anticipated reunion smackdown showdown between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi aired on ABC last night and boy did things get ugly.
The former engaged Bachelor couple sat down together with the show’s host Chris Harrison to dish on what went wrong in their brief relationship and engagement. Below is a recap:
What Went Wrong?
He Said: “The relationship was going downhill but I wasn’t ready to quit fighting.”
She Said: “The first month together was great. He was crazy about me. From there it went straight downhill. It felt like a relationship when cameras were rolling or we were out on a red carpet, but when we were at home [it was] lonely. I just wanted him to be around me and talk to me and kiss me like a normal relationship.”
The Star Magazine Interview Vienna Got Paid For -
He Said: “I’m so mad at you. I’m disgusted with you.”
She Said: “Either way, our relationship had been public. The world was going to want to know what happened . . . I hadn’t had a voice this entire time… You are a fame whore is what you are.”
Life After The Bachelor -
She Said: “My impression was that you were a pilot and we were going to go back to Florida and Dallas and live a normal life. Instead, we’re in L.A. and you’re pursuing a career in acting.”
He Said: “At least I was pursuing a career in something.”
Who’s To Blame?
He Said: “She breaks me down, she undermines me, she’s mean . . . this is it, right here.”
She Said: “He was always mean to me and treated me like I was a child.”
My take on this – I absolutely believe Vienna’s side on this story. Why? Well mostly because I believe the story of Jake’s ex-girlfriend Tanya Douglas. Tanya came out right after the Bachelor ended and said Jake only went on the show for fame, and even tried to get back together with her just days after proposing to Vienna. I believe the reason Jake was so hell bent on staying with Vienna was because he wanted to save face over his two timing ways, and prove to the public he really loved Vienna, though he most likely did not. I also believe Vienna when she says Jake only kissed her in public and wasn’t intimate with her for months. I do know that Jake’s Dancing With The Stars partner, Chelsie Hightower, wasn’t a big fan of him, and most people who worked on the show didn’t like him either. Overall, I just think Jake’s a bit weird. Is he gay? I didn’t give the rumor any merit at first, but after hearing what his ex-girlfriend also had to say, I must say I wouldn’t be surprised if he was.
