“Bachelor Pad” Looks Trash-tastic

There’s nothing as relaxing as kicking back on a Monday night and letting the mindless optimism of “The Bachelorette” wash over you. I’d gotten so used to Monday nights with Ali and Roberto, and was a little worried about going through withdrawal now that the show is over. But luckily, I won’t have to. This Monday brings the premiere of a brand-new show, “Bachelor Pad,” which is kind of like “The Bachelor” meets “The Real World.” Meaning, it’s way trashier. The concept: your favorite and most hated contestants live together in a house to compete for love and money. Hookups and back-stabbings abound. Sounds like television gold to me. Will you be watching? I’m pretty sure Amelia will be.
