“Bachelor Pad” Recap: Ed’s Dream, Our Nightmare

By: Ami Angelowicz / September 4, 2012

SPOILERS galore! This week’s “Pad” challenge was called “Hanging By A Thread”, a fitting description for my interest in the show. I hate to say this, but “Bachelor Pad” is about as dead to me as Rachel is to Jaclyn after she eliminates her and they are no longer “best friends.” I’m sorry if I spoiled anything for you. Another best friendship RUINED by “Bachelor Pad.” But before Jaclyn and Ed are sent motoring in the reject limo, Ed has the opportunity to make his “dream come true” by doing a live performance of one of his “favorite” songs from his “running mix” — “Sister Christian” by Night Ranger. It soon turns into a nightmare for us all. But the kind that’s super fun to laugh about together. Shall we do that? Guaranteed laughs after the jump.

I’ve saved the worst for last! You’ve heard Sarah’s voice. But you haven’t seen her dance moves yet. They might be more unfortunate than her voice. As Ed puts it, “Sarah looks like a monkey that’s being electrocuted by some kind of thunderbolt coming down on her.” I rarely agree with Ed. But in this case, he nails it. They are just so … odd. Obviously, Nick and Rachel win the “Sister Christian” competition because they are the least awful and it’s time to make some tough decisions about who will be in the finale. Jaclyn thinks, mistakenly, that she will be spared because Rachel is her “best friend.” Where has she been the past seven weeks? Hasn’t she caught on yet that this game has nothing to do with friendship?

Anyhow, see you next week at the finale … finally, as Sarah and Chis and Rachel and Nick duke it out for the dough.
