Michael Stagliano has been a Bachelor Pad mainstay for two seasons now, winning last year’s with ex-fiance Holly Durst and starting out strong in Bachelor Pad 3. Well, all that changed Monday night when his plotting, scheming, and manipulating encountered a vindictive Chris Bukowski (who are the people that find him attractive again?) and a crazy Erica Rose!
In a new blog for Parade, Michael discusses his elimination and shockingly takes accountability for his actions. He also discusses Chris‘ potentially game damaging actions of taking Erica into the voting room with him!
Michael co-signs that everyone was on board with Chris and by default SarahNewlon being eliminated at the start of the episode following his ploy the week before to get Blakely Jones voted out.
Bachelor alum Emily Maynard is a popular girl! First it was reported that she is dating Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey (although he denied it via Twitter and then linked to his actual girlfriend) and now it seems her ex-fiance, and the very most pathetic contestant in Bachelor history, Brad Womack just won’t leave her alone!
Unfortunately those rumors about Emily dating Jeremy have led Brad to tirelessly drunk dial his ex! Brad “filled up her voicemail with messages of him crying, saying how upset he was that she was with someone else,” a source claims.
Us Weekly is now reporting that Brad “calls Emily every day and at all hours,” despite the fact that he is no longer interested in being romantically involved! “He doesn’t want her back,” a source explains – he just can’t lose her number!
“She just doesn’t pick up. They actually haven’t spoken for months,” the source continues. “She feels like he is so messed up!” Um, you are not alone in thinking that, Emily!
While one Bachelor couple has ended in despair, another one seems to be happily dating! Season 12 Bachelor Matt Grant and Bachelor Pad winner Natalie Getz are apparently a couple.
A close friend of Natalie’s discloses that the pair are “100 percent dating!”
The couple allegedly got together, not at one of zillion Bachelor-family reunions, but at their Local LA Starbucks after they kept randomly bumping into each other! Kinda nice, actually. A friend of Matt’s informs us, “They always saw each other, so one day he was like, ‘Let’s hang out,’ because he thought she was fun. It was totally organic.”
“It’s still new, but they’ve gone out a few times and are seeing how things go,” the friend continues. “Their friends think they’re a good match.” Best of luck to the new couple. And best of luck to Emily in getting away from her stalker Brad!
Thoughts on Brad calling Emily obsessively, despite not wanting her back? Crazy, desperate, or kind of sad? Are you happy for Matt and Natalie?
In an unexpected twist, the two were given the option to share the $250,000 prize with each other, or attempt to keep the money all to themselves. They both elected to split the prize money, giving viewers a happy ending to the show.
And when it comes to their romantic relationship, the two said they are trying to see where things will go, admitting their relationship was no where close to that of Tenley and Kyptin, who appear to be pretty serious.
RadarOnline is however reporting today that the two are not a couple. “Natalie really likes Dave but Dave just wants to play the field,” says a source “The girls are throwing themselves at him, and he is loving it.” The site also adds that the duo did not act like a couple at a recent afterparty for the show, and that Dave ended up leaving the party with Jessie Sulidas.
As for the other couples, Jesse Kovacsand crazy pants Elizabeth Kittare no longer together. According to PEOPLE, the pair gave things a try for a couple of days after filming ended for the show, but ultimately broke up because they wanted very different things.
Wes Hayden and Gia Allemand reunited on the reunion show, even sharing a kiss! The couple is going to give things a shot by dating long distance. “It’s going to be complicated,” Hayden says, “but maybe this was the way it was meant to play out all along. I waited and it paid off.”
Things seem to be going best for Kiptyn Locke and Tenley Molzahn. The two live close to one another in Southern California, and are looking forward to building on their relationship.“There’s so much more to get to know about one another,” says Tenley. “So we’re going to date for awhile. Exclusively.”

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.”
