The Bachelorpad Finale
Here we goooo! Finally gonna see who wins this thing and then bring them back and see what really went down!
Chris comes in and tells the 4 remaining couples they are going to Vegas for the final challenge. Love it! Vegas is exactly where they should take this circus.
They arrive at The MGM and their theatre that is The Cirque Du Solae kua. AWESOME! They all look very nervous. There is a 100ft rotating wall in front of them that they will be suspended to in harnesses and be working on. I personally think it looks super fun.
They have to do a 60 sec routine with 10 sec in which they do whatever they want to try and stand out.
Graham is afraid of heights and Michelle is getting very sick to her stomach so they are really struggling starting out.
There is a lot of awkward tension between Holly and Mike.
Kirk and Ella are doing ok.
Kasey and Vienna are fighting.
They bring in a panel of Judges.
Trista! Still looking great! The godfather Jason Mesnick and Ally! What a panel!
Graham and Michelle are up first and they did ok. Looked a little slow but not to bad. Good chemistry.
Kirk and Ella are 2nd. Kirk is trying to coach Ella through it but she is really really struggling. Not great.
Vienna and Kasey go 3rd. They actually look super good!!! Wow They seriously kicked ass.
Last but not least are Mike and Holly. Holly and Mike might have done even better believe it or not. They looked super good as well.
Its up to the Vets on the panel to tally the votes! Read the rest of this entry »
Just a heads up….. I am on a plane watching this on my way to Las Vegas with 12 of my closest friends soooooo it might be a little different of a blog today….
Am I the only one that thought that their DVR stopped working last week and kept rewinding to see what had happened to the show then threw the controller through their TV? No? Didn’t think so. Thanks ABC for what was for sure the worst ending to a show yet. Now you owe me a new TV and controller. Not cool.
If you remember they called Kasey’s name at the end of the show and then cut straight to “The Mask” swimming around the pool. I think they thought it would be cute or funny, but I guess it’s a different sense of humor than I have because I do not think it was.
We start off this week with the ending of the last rose ceremony. Chris calls Kasey’s name and it looks like Jake is going home. They pan to Jake and he has that ass- eating grin on his face then steps out to say a few things to the cast.
He say’s “they are sending the wrong guy home” then say’s “amazing meeting you Kasey and Vienna my apologies in my heart your forgiven.” Kasey and Vienna look super relieved.
Jakes limo ride was nothing short of a soap opera ending. I thought he did the best he could on the show but I am not gonna miss that shit-eating grin and stupid fake laugh that’s for sure. Read the rest of this entry »
DAMNIT…I AM THAT GUY. Almost 30 and driving by High School football fields and thinking back on what in 30 years are some of best days of my life. Looking back now I understand why it stands out so much. It was before $ or politics played much of a role in it. So pure and the kids play for each other and not for themselves. Being apart of something bigger than myself and working for others and seeing the TEAM succeed together was something that is hard to if not impossible to recreate. People say you can recreate this by playing basketball, or soccer or maybe teamwork at a job you have. That is laughable. My High school football coach said it best. ”Dave you can play basketball, golf, soccer, baseball, tennis, swimming….. until your bones give out but for most of us high school is the last time you will ever be able to put a helmet and pads on.” Its a combat sport like no other. 30 year old men would break, tear and kill each other trying to play again. Probably miss a week of work at best. I played basketball 2 days ago. Tennis. My grandmother can play that. Swimming….please. I don’t have many regrets in life (its to short) but the one I have that rest at the top is not taking advantage of playing after Jr. High until my senior year. I urge anyone with a son to encourage them to play from grade school up. The work ethic, toughness, courage and teamwork cannot be duplicated in anything else. Its real Man Code Stuff!
Vince Lombardi said it best.
“I’ve never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something in good men that really yearns for discipline and the harsh reality of head to head combat. I don’t say these things because I believe in the “brute” nature of man or that men must be brutalized to be combative. I believe in God, and I believe in human decency. But I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.”
I am extra pumped for this week’s episode! There are two special guests….. Natalie Getz and I!!!!
Jumping right back into the drama, Melissa is drilling Blake in the kitchen. He really made a bad mistake by getting involved with her. I like what Holly said about herself and that “its not like that” with her and Blake. She likes to flirt and they are just friends.
Blake said Melissa “is a live wire flailing around waiting to zap someone.” I don’t think I could have said it better myself. She is getting really upset with him and now getting all the girls to try and have her back. Not good for my Blake.
Next Chris comes in and announces its time to head outside to see the next competition. Hmmm. Wonder what it is gonna be!?
Synchronized Swimming! This should be good!
The guys will perform together and the ladies will perform together. One person from each team will be chosen by “guest judges” on their performances and receive roses.
HAHAHAHA… Their outfits are hilarious! Speedos and flower bikinis.
Next, the judges are announced… which consist of Karen (a professional synchronized swimmer), Natalie and I.
The girls go first. I have to say… I thought the girls with some cheerleader background would be good at this. WRONG. They looked really, really bad and did not work well as a team.
The guys however, seemed to have worked very well as a team and they were so much better than the girls! Stags really took control of the situation and led the guys routine.
Mike Stags won for the guys and Michelle Money won for the girls. They both really deserved it.
The producers would not let Nat and I in on any secrets or let us spend much time with everyone so we did not get a lot of info at that time. But, it was fun to be back at the house and see everyone. I wish I were competing again for that $250,000!!!! Read the rest of this entry »
Let the fireworks continue! Jake starts out the show saying he thinks he is in a good position and people are starting to see the real him and that he is not a jerk. I feel like in his head he must constantly be singing “zippidy du da, zippidy aye” and has no clue about what the hell is going on around him.
The next competition is one where they stand in a line and have targets on their backs. They are asked questions about the group and have to hit the guy/girl they feel best fits the answer to that question. Guys are up first and then the girls line up.
The girls line up to throw first and are really, really bad throwers for one. They should have scooted the line up to about 3 feet. Turns out Jakes opinion of himself was off a bit and the girls are drilling Jake here – as to whom they want to go home.
The guys have a little better aim and are drilling Erica – she’s getting crushed as being the ‘least attractive’. She is going to be devastated after this, for sure!
Yep! She is very upset and I feel bad for her. That is a brutal competition.
I want to say that I feel some of them did not play a very smart game here. You could have really gotten into someone’s psyche instead of just picking the one who is the least attractive. Instead, go after the one you want to get into their head.
Mike Stags wins the competition and gets to take 3 girls on a date. He choses Erica, Michelle Money and Holly. This is going to be a little weird to see Holly and Mike together for the first time since they split up.
The date is to the Linda Vista hospital. A haunted hospital, basically. They all seem actually really scared. LOL.
I already want to ff through this. I can’t stand all the girls screaming. Its giving me a headache. Talk about a shitty date. I got to go to Vegas and drive Lamborghinis around and you get to go to a haunted hospital. FAIL. Read the rest of this entry »
HERE WE GO!!!! Bachelor Pad 2! I can honestly say I am excited to watch this. Putting this cast all in one house is gonna be like locking a bunch of pit bulls in a room and throwing in one piece of meat.
I’m not going to go over all their bios. I’ll just share a few things that stand out to me – but you will get to know how I feel about each one of this season’s contestants as we go on.
Right now, I am laughing so hard at the intro and looking back on all these people’s runs on the show.
Holy shit. Ella’s story is terrifying. Her step-father shot her mother right in front of her! So sorry . Poor girl.
I love Stags. You being upset about your breakup makes me want to give you a hug. I miss your smell, I miss being near you and sleeping in a bed next to you along with 15 other dudes. Wait what??? If you win this we should get an apartment together… wait what??? I meant shoot guns, make leather and drive heavy machinery together, clearly!
Alright bio’s are over and its game time!
Michelle Money is first out and looks super hot! I have gotten to know her in the past few months and think she is so sweet. I think you will all get to see a different side of her on this show. Read the rest of this entry »
Ashley starts out meeting and talking with her family and says she is in love! J.P. is first to meet the family.
The family seems to be ok with J.P., but her sister seems a bit put by him.
Ashley’s sister is one tough cookie! Wow. I love it. I see the same thing she does. She took the words right out of my mouth with what she said about J.P. I really like the guy and am not knocking HIM as a person, but I just don’t see it and I agree with her 100%.
He really is a little too serious for her. I have said this in my past blogs already. He is very controlling and over-protective and not going to be able to handle this relationship. I’m not sure, but I wonder if J.P. went back to his room and started hitting himself saying “No. No J.P…bad Christy…she wrong ! Ash and I will be together forever and I just know it. I’ll show her!” hahaha Read the rest of this entry »
The final 3 head to Fiji! This is one place that I really want to go myself. When I get married I think this is honeymoon material! Beautiful.
We start off with Ash and Ben, and a run through their little journey through the show. With his mellow mood and sincerity he has really grown on me. I like Constantine, but after watching this little bit I actually think I like Ben for Ash.
I really like Constantine and J.P. as individuals. Both good dudes, but just don’t see them a real good fit for Ash. This is just my opinion from what I have seen on show, so I always keep an open mind and YOU should too.
Up to this point I don’t think anyone has had a fantasy suite soooooooo, that could really change Ash’s opinion of a guy, if you know what I mean. If you are kind of slow and don’t… I’m talking about their sexual chemistry in the bedroom.
HOLY SANTA CLAUSE SHIT! Jake is back!!! Oh wait…Its Ryan P! Hmmmmm. Did I call this or what! I swear, if he say’s ‘Jesus sent me back’ I’m going to punch my roommate. He is sitting right here and has no idea he might just get knocked out of his chair because of some guy on TV. He will be super pissed.
Ryan P. The reason “you have got nowhere” in 31 years from what you said… well , I feel its a bit harsh. You seem like a pretty successful guy. Just kinda douchy. But that’s ok. You still had some dignity when you left. Lets see how this plays out. Read the rest of this entry »
Its Hometown Date Time!!!! I always love seeing the different places and the different family’s people come from. Usually explains a lot.
We have Ben F, Constantine, My boy AMES and J.P. left.
Constantine gets the first hometown so Ash’s first stop is Atlanta, GA.
Giorgios’s is his Italian restaurant and he takes Ash there to cook a meal and spend time together. I like his passion for what he does – its really awesome when someone truly loves what they do. I know it’s a turn on for me when a woman has that same kind of passion.
I like what his dad said….”I can tell when I see his face.” Dad’s do seem to have this ability. His family seemed really cool and close, which is great. Very open, very loving and looked like an easy family to get to know and fit in easy with.
The surprise party was so awesome!!!! Made me miss my family a lot. L
I have to say his family was what I expected they would be – judging by what I’ve seen of Constantine. A+
My dog Ames is next! Off to New York Ash goes…. I’m thinking a very college professor type home. Brown jackets with the light brown elbow pads and bow tie with a few Atlases in the house with little marks for the places they have visited.
I don’t normally notice dudes clothes but Ames has some good taste. His family seems really nice. House is sick! Not quite as Oxford as I thought though. Very well rounded individuals. Poor Ames has had two fathers that passed away. I can’t imagine how that changes a person. Read the rest of this entry »
Ash and the boys head to Taiwan. They have hit a lot of countries on this trip of love! This week there are going to be 4 dates. Three of them are one-on-one’s and 1 group date. There will only be a rose on the group date. The one-on-one’s have no rose, so no pressure.
Constantine gets the first date with Ash. They take a scenic train ride over to Ping-Shi (LOL). I like saying Ping-shi. They paint a “love wish” on a balloon to let off later that night. They then sit down for a nice serious dinner where they talk about the hometown date and then let off their balloon – which was actually really cool… and I’m pretty sure the cause of the California wild fires.
Ben comes out and for a second I thought it was Constantine again. I think Ben pulls the hair off better. Wow…the “hell of a second date kiddo” remark he made was so stupid. I thought I liked him more than Constantine, but now I don’t know. The battle of the hair begins. Ryan P. is just a douche… I’m gonna throw this in here now. He reminds me of Jake so much. He is, for sure, flying upside down.
Who do you like better for Ash? Ben or Constantine? I like Ben, just a slight bit more. Seems just a little more genuine. He confesses a lot of his feelings and is rewarded with a nice kiss and the music sets in so nicely. She says he is like her boyfriend….lol just like that, only with 5 other boyfriends.
