The Bachelor Pad's Juan Barbieri

Following his elimination on the first season of ABC’s The Bachelor Pad, former Bachelorette contestant Juan Barbieri is now speaking out about his time on and off the show.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Juan discusses why he went on the show, what really happened between him and Nikki, while he also defends crazy pants Michelle.

Excerpts from Juan’s interview below -

The reason you were eliminated is because of your history with Nikki. Viewers only got part of the story and it made you seem like a jerk. What’s your side?
Nikki tends to embellish and exaggerate and she uses the terms relationship and dating differently than I do … We had been corresponding online and she seemed like a sweet girl. She invited me to Chicago. I had never been and was eager to visit. We had a wonderful weekend together. She was a wonderful host. Everything went as normally and naturally as you can imagine and then I came back to LA, my life and other people I was dating. We kept in touch but at no time did we ever talk about pursuing it. I took it for what it was and she obviously took it for something more. The next time I saw her was six weeks later on the reunion cruise. Before we boarded, I said I wasn’t interested in continuing our relationship and that it would be best to be friends. She didn’t take that very well and that’s where the animosity started.

Were you surprised at how quickly Natalie and Jesse hooked up?
Yeah. They had an instant connection. They are each other’s type in every way. I don’t know if it will last. They live in different states so that makes things difficult.

Did Michelle and Craig hook up on the first night?
That never happened. Tenley was dreaming or it was Natalie and Jesse who had already been making out and slept next to her. Craig and Michelle were on the other side of the room and I know for a fact they didn’t do anything inappropriate. If it was Tenley’s strategy to start a rumor about someone already on thin ice to rally the troop against her, it was well-played.

As you all slept in one room, which woman looked best waking up?
Gia always looked great. Some girls walked in to the house all dolled up and Gia came in with no makeup, hair down and a T-shirt and could not have looked more beautiful.

A new episode of the Bachelor Pad is also coming on tonight. Things quickly heat up when Wes Hayden tells Gia he loves her. “I’m crazy about you … I wish that circumstances were different … but I’ve got this infatuation that you’re kinda my girl … I love you,” says Wes to Gia.

On the other side of the house, it seems Jesse is having second thoughts about Natalie upon hearing she’s been around the block with many other past Bachelor(ette) guys.

ABC The Bachelor Pad

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.”

DWTS Kate Gosselin

Good news for ABC! Their decision to thrown in one or two random controversial reality stars in the mix of their new season of Dancing With The Stars is drastically paying off.

Monday night’s premiere episode was the highest rated episode ever for the DWTS series. The two hour debut averaged over 23.9 million total viewers. This is a drastic increase compared to the 17.5 million viewers that watched last season’s debut.

And for those who missed the premiere episode, ABC has decided to rebroadcast it this Saturday at 8:00/7:00c.

In other DWTS news, Kate Gosselin continues to be the center of negative media attention. First, UsWeekly posted a story stating that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom was a total nervous wreck backstage. Kate, who scored the night’s third lowest score looked “so nervous the entire time,” reveals an onlooker.

A dancing expert also reveals to UsWeekly that Kate will likely be the first one voted off. The NYPost is also reporting that Kate continues to be a diva on the set of the show, and that she is always late for hair and makeup.

“The staff has warned her and lectured her about being late, but Kate just gets angry and blows them off,” says the source. “No one wants to deal with her.”

UsWeekly also reports that though The Bachelor’s Vienna Girardi sat in the audience with fiance Jake Pavelka‘s parents, she paid zero attention to them. “They did not speak at all or interact — it was very noticeable to me,” says a witness.

Also sitting with Vienna was former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, whom Vienna chatted with all night.

This season of The Bachelor has been rather dramatic with last night being the most dramatic episode yet. Contestant Ali Fedotowsky mulled over the difficult decision of having to pick between her dream guy and her dream job.

The 25-year-old advertising accounts manager — who works for Facebook — decided to quit the show leaving Jake Pavelka “heartbroken.” It seemed Ali wanted some sort of guarantee from Jake that she would be the last woman standing, Jake ofcourse could not give her that assurance, hence she decided to leave.

Jake, 32, will now have to pick between the three remaining contestants: Vienna Girardi, Tenley Molzahn and Gia Allemand. The finale airs Monday, March 1 on ABC.

Fans were shocked to see Ali leave so abruptly, but even more shocked was Jake, who shared his thoughts on his PEOPLE blog today. Excerpts from Jake’s blog below -

“After visiting all the families, I felt really good about where I was in this journey. Then I got back to L.A. and the bottom dropped out. My heart crumbled when she told me her boss demanded her back at work. I didn’t actually think she would leave me. We talked about it for three hours that night while the poor women at the rose ceremony just waited. She actually didn’t have to be back at work for four or five more days but we were leaving the country the next morning, so she had to make a decision. I felt like she wanted me to make the choice for her, but I couldn’t. How could I live with myself if I told her, “No! You are not leaving me now!” and then realize a week or two later that she was not “the one.” I couldn’t make the decision for her. When she told me she was leaving, my heart stopped. I wish I could’ve had Mike Tyson punch me square in the jaw, because it would have felt so much better than what I feeling as I watched AliCat drive away that night.

What could I do? I had to regain my composure and focus on the amazing women I had left; three women that I have fallen in love with.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON ALI LEAVING? SHOULD SHE HAVE STAYED?

the-bachelor-14-corrieBachelor Vienna

Most recently eliminated Bachelor contestant Corrie Adamson had some strong words during her recent exit interview from the show.

Corrie, who said she wasn’t surprised at her elimination, reveals she doesn’t believe any of the remaining four women would be a great fit for Jake Pavelka. “I just, either way, didn’t see him with anyone, long-term, in all honesty,” Corrie told reporters.

However Corrie believes out of the four women remaining, Jake has a stronger connection with two of them. “But I think that him and Vienna and Ali all had a really strong connection and I think Tenley is a really great girl and he’d be lucky to have her. And I loved Gia to death, she was one of my good friends while I was there — but I don’t see her and Jake together at all.”

When asked about her thoughts on Jake’s rumored pick – Vienna, Corrie said, “They had a strong connection and I won’t be surprised to see that. [But] I will be surprised if they last.”

And on the Vienna topic, she has been taking a lot of heat in the press lately for a few reasons. One — she is Jake’s rumored final pick, and two — she seems to have a lot of skeletons in her closet. The 23 year old former Hooters waitress and Orlando native, has an ex husband and ex fiance all at the age of 23.

Her ex husband, Josh Riley, and former mother-in-law recently came out in the press accusing her of cheating on her ex-husband with his friend while he was deployed in Iraq. Her ex mother-in-law even accused her of draining her ex-husband’s bank account to pay for her breast implants.

Her friends are now coming to her defense (the women on the show aren’t allowed to do press until they are eliminated or done with the show). A close family friend spoke to RadarOnline denying all claims that Vienna cheated on her ex, and that she stole money from him.

According to this friend, “Vienna was a straight A student at school and got an academic scholarship to go to college.” Apparently, Vienna’s family was devasted when she decided to leave college and marry Josh. She would later complete her college degree after her divorce. Vienna’s father helped the couple financially, said the close family friend and Josh was the one who called her from Iraq to call off the marriage.

The account she took money from was a joint account for the couple and Vienna left $5,800 in the account for Josh according to the friend. The friend goes on to say Vienna is a “good” and a “really sweet person.”

According to our recent poll, most readers believe Tenley is the best match for Jake, with Vienna being the worst match.

“I just, either way, didn’t see him with anyone, long-term, in all honesty,” Adamson, whom Pavelka rejected during Monday night’s broadcast, told reporters during a Thursday conference call.

“But I think that him and [Vienna Girardi] and [Ali Fedotowsky] all had a really strong connection and I think [Tenley Molzahn] is a really great girl and he’d be lucky to have her. And I loved [Gia Allemand] to death, she was one of my good friends while I was there — but I don’t see he and Jake together at all.”
