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.

MTV's The Ruins

Tonight’s episode of MTV’s The Ruins ended with a fight, a breakdown, and ultimately Tonya having to leave the show.

The episode began with the two douchebags known as Evan and Kenny being outright awful to a drunk Tonya. Once they get bored with Tonya, they decided to move on to Katie for whatever reason. Evan, Kenny and Johnny have become extremely annoying, mean and evil on these challenges. Quite frankly, I’m tired of seeing them on TV. Not sure why MTV keeps bringing them back every year.

The challenges have become rather boring and predictable. The same people come back every year, bully everyone, and win year after year. Here’s to hoping these three will not be back on the next challenge.

So we get back to Tonya who admits she has a drinking problem, as well as other real life problems which includes a recent divorce. It’s obvious to see she’s a broken person who needs help, and not constant abuse/berating from the 3 douchebags. Tonya once again gets drunk, and decides to take her anger out on Veronica. She ends up hitting Veronica and going home. Evan decides to play hero and comfort Tonya, perhaps to make himself look better on TV.

Wes ends up being the voice of reason, and calls them out. After all, they did play a big role in Tonya’s breakdown on the show. For some reason, Derrick tries to shut Wes down for speaking the truth. Clearly, no one is willing to stand up to the bullies, with the exception of Wes. The episode ended with Sarah defeating Katie, and Darrell defeating Danny.

Overall, with the exception of tonight’s episode, this season has been a bit of a bore to me. It seems like a rerun of previous seasons. The same douchebags, the same bullies, and the same victims. And quite frankly, I can’t stand to watch the Kenny/Evan/Johnny douche posse anymore. MTV needs a new formula.

Tell Us – What Were Your Thoughts On This Ruins Episode?

jillian_harris_bachelorette

In her latest blog, Jillian Harris talks about her thoughts on last night’s “Men Tell All.” She doesn’t really touch on the whole Wes topic, but does talk about her favorite moments of the season as well as seeing all of her “ex-boyfriends” again as she puts it.

Below are some excerpts from her latest Bachelorette blog -

“If I have eliminated someone who you loved, I am sorry … I wish I could have kept every wonderful guy from the show but I am only looking for ONE man to make ME happy. I DO have an excellent judge of character and I do know what I am looking for in a unique individual to go through life with me.

Also, I want to clear up a little confusion about the perception of my “engagement standards” coming into this journey. I was not desperate for an engagement. I actually was very nervous about it and would be happy with no engagement if that were the right choice. All I wanted and would have been happy with was someone to love who loved me back. Someone who had some sort of conviction of how they felt, or was willing to make a sacrifice of any kind, as I had stated several times that I was eager to do the same. Not only is this conviction from the guy an indication for me to move forward with the relationship, but it is also an indication of what our life would be like post-show.

The Men Tell All was actually a blast! Well … it didn’t start out so fun … I got to the set and was waiting and waiting and waiting to come out onstage. Now that I’ve seen the show I understand why! The guys clearly had a lot to get off their chests.

The Bachelorette “Men Tell All” episode is set to air tonight, but one man who will not be appearing on the show is Wes Hayden. Arguably the most hated Bachelor since Jason Mesnick, one can’t help but wonder why Wes will not be speaking his peace tonight.

You would think the men are contractually obligated to appear on the show, but evidently Wes seems to be a special case. According to Austin360.com, an entertainment site based in Wes’ hometown, “(Wes) angrily declined to appear on the ‘Men Tell All’ episode. A week later, however, he changed his mind but was told the show didn’t want him there.”

The reason being? The producers of The Bachelorette are not happy with Wes giving out unauthorized interviews. Wes has been pretty much bad mouthing the show in an attempt to defend himself. He blames bad editing for the way came off on the show. When asked about his non appearance, Wes said -

“They cancelled mine. They didn’t want me talking to anybody. I’ve been available. I’ve worked too hard in my life to let somebody destroy me for their TV ratings. I might be from Texas and I might talk slow, but I’m not stupid. If I had a hidden agenda to go on that show, my lips would have been sealed, never would I have once said I was there for my CD, my career and I have a girlfriend. I know how to market myself, and it would not have been to go on TV and have everyone hate me. (An ABC spokeswoman, Cathy Rehl, said that the week Hayden was booted on air, he wasn’t available for a media conference call. Also, ‘we don’t do conference calls with all the men,’ she said.)”

The Bachelorette finale does not air until 2 more weeks but we have some major spoilers here for you! Including the big rumor that Ed had a girlfriend during the show.

Stop reading now if you do not want to know what happens. Majority of this information comes from RealitySteve. This is the same guy that revealed what would happen with Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft on The Bachelor earlier this year. He was 100% accurate then, so there’s a good chance he is with this info as well. Enjoy the spoilers below –

The Bachelorette Jillian Harris

The last episode of The Bachelorette ended with Jillian Harris tearfully sending Reid home. Jillian was very emotional about her choice and is calling the decision “heart wrenching” in her new blog. Reid was seen by a lot of fans as being the favorite, so this choice came as a surprise to most.

What Jillian doesn’t touch on was the problems that she supposedly experienced in the bedroom with Ed. The implication from last night’s show was that Ed couldn’t rise up to the occasion, but fans of the show suspect the producers of the show might have staged the whole thing to throw us off. The rumor is Ed might be the winner with Kiptyn being the new bachelor. I honestly have no idea. It will be interesting to watch it all unfold.


Bachelorette Ed Swiderski

Jillian however touches on her very steamy date with Ed. The Bachelor(ette) shows seem to be focused on pushing the envelope nowadays. These shows are getting more and more trashier by the minute. It seems they are trying to keep up with the VH1 dating shows.

The steamy massages with Ed and Jillian wasn’t that bad in my opinion. However the implications that Ed couldn’t get it up in the bedroom was a bit much and unnecessary for the viewers. They could have left out that storyline.

Excerpts from Jillian’s blog about this week’s episode is below -

It’s a little harder to write my blog now that there is less fun, juicy gossip and more deep, heartfelt feelings. How do you put this into words? This week was a hard one to watch — that heart-wrenching goodbye with Reid, the close-to-inappropriate steamy scene with Ed, (um, did that almost top my hot tub scene!? Yikes!) and me almost barfing on myself on that totem pole with Kiptyn! I have to admit that a lot of feelings came rushing back when I watched the episode this week.

Reid’s date was very bitterSWEET (I capped the sweet because it was more sweet than bitter). See, Reid and I had a very good energy together. When we were together, it was like an old high school crush. We rarely worried about the specifics and were always just so flighty together. What you didn’t see was that we actually got a couples’ massage on the beach before dinner. Soooo romantic! I highly recommend it (if you happen to be slumming around the beaches of Maui looking for something to do)!

So, that feeling that I have been looking for was definitely there with Reid, but the promise of any sort of commitment or partnership wasn’t there. And because I have been hurt before by not being realistic, it made me put up a wall and inevitably led to me letting Reid go. I will have to agree with Chris in saying this had to be the most emotional goodbye in Bachelorette history.

Now Ed’s date. I definitely have to say Ed and I fit A LOT into that day — the catamaran ride, cliff jumping and swimming in the ocean, but the best part of the date was not something I had planned … it was Ed’s surprise. I was SHOCKED when he told me he brought his parents to Hawaii. I had been hearing about this Judy for so long, she became sort of a legend to me. I am positive I was more nervous than she was. And how about Ed’s dad and his classic quote “What the hell are we doing here?” That was another belly laugh moment. After all the hometown dates, I will have to say this was definitely one of my favorites. So real.

Again, I have to say that this episode tugged on the heartstrings. I have been blessed with these three individuals who are not only bright, genuine, charismatic, gorgeous and down to earth — but who respect me and adore me. I can now say with 100 percent conviction that it is possible to fall for more than one person when you are presented with individuals of this caliber.
