Last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad”
should have been called “The One Where They Try and Give Each Other Mono.” See, this week’s big competition was a kissing contest — every Bach and Bachelorette had a turn at being blindfolded, as the opposite sex took turns kissing them with as much gusto and tongue as they could muster. Then the blindfolded one would vote on which person was the best kisser and so on. Basically, ABC is not even trying to stand in the way of these dorks sharing bodily fluids. Do they at least test them for herpes? Keep reading »
The word on the street is that Chris Lambton, the rainbow-watching dude who Ali ditched in favor of Roberto on “The Bachelorette,” has turned down ABC’s offer to be the next “Bachelor.” According to multiple sources, Chris just wants to get back to “normal life.” Which doesn’t surprise us hugely. After all, he said after the “Bachelorette” finale, “It would be an amazing opportunity and a great way to find a wife, but I just don’t know if I want to give out more of my personal story.”
Still, ABC is not giving up. “All of our best Bachelors have been hesitant at first,” a source says. “The producers really want Chris to be the guy. They’re hoping they can convince him … This definitely isn’t dead yet.” [People, E! Online] Keep reading »

Never underestimate the potential for someone to change your mind. That is the lesson I learned from last night’s “Bachelor Pad,” in which I finally came to love and root for The Weatherman. Keep reading »
Guess who has a new favorite Monday night trash TV show? “Bachelor Pad” debuted last night and was everything I could have hoped for and more. The premise: 19 former contestants on ABC’s “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” series, living in a house together, having their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop trying to fall in love and instead focus on winning money. Greed! Hookups! Tears! The lowdown on what happened in the first episode after the jump …

I’ve still been tearing up every now and then thinking about the rainbow Chris Lambton’s mom sent him from the other side right after Ali Fedotowsky dumped him for Roberto in Bora Bora on “The Bachelorette.” My heart was bleeding for him with his hot tattoo of his mom’s signature. Keep reading »
Back in 2007, “Bachelor” viewers were shocked when lame-oid Brad Womack decided not to choose either Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas in the final episode. Uh, didn’t he get that memo about the point of the show? DeAnna was totally heartbroken, but picked herself up and became “The Bachelorette.” Only she and her final choice—Jesse Csincsak—didn’t work out, either.
Now, DeAnna has found love for realz. And oddly enough, it happened because of “The Bachelor.” One of DeAnna’s good friends is Holly Durst, a contestant on “The Bachelor” who was let go by Matt Grant. (Bizarre side note: she also dated Jesse.) Holly later got together with Michael Stagliano, who tried to win over Jillian Harris on “The Bachelorette.” Holly and Michael decide to set up DeAnna with Michael’s twin, Stephen, and—shocker—it worked. DeAnna is currently home in Georgia, planning her wedding to Stephen, which will apparently be going down very soon. Before she left for the trip, Stephen tweeted, “The love of my life leaves me today to go home to Georgia : ( .” [Radar]
There’s something oddly inspiring about seeing someone who was crushed on “The Bachelor” find love in real life. After the jump, other folks who went from heartbroken to giddily happy in a very short time. Keep reading »
