Wanted to give a few thoughts on the press release of the “Bachelor Pad” and what I know has gone down in the past with a few contestants. It’ll shed a little light for people who have no idea who’s hooked up with who outside of the show. Also, want to talk about the rules, the living situation, the challenges, and alliances possibly being built. However, let me first give a thought on the Jake/Vienna break up which took an interesting turn yesterday after I had posted my column. No need to spend more than two paragraphs on something we all knew was coming. It was always a matter of “when” and not “if” with these two.
Vienna did an exclusive interview with “Star” magazine. Meaning that she spoke to them and told them sometime this weekend or even late last week. Those magazines go to print Monday night. That story didn’t just all the sudden happen yesterday, it had a few days to build up. Her story in a nutshell (and you can read a portion of it on Starmagazine.com), is that Jake and her haven’t had sex for the last four months, the guy only is affectionate with her when the cameras are rolling, and she calls him a “fame whore.” Not to mention Vienna’s stepmom chimed in to TMZ telling them Jake never really loved Vienna, never told her that he loved her, and only picked her because she was the most dramatic and it would increase ratings. Like I said yesterday, I’m gonna tend to actually believe Vienna’s camp more than what Jake says. Why? Because this is everything I’ve heard about the guy over the last couple months. Whether he would’ve picked Tenley, Gia, or Vienna – it didn’t matter. This was going to be your result, hands down. The guy is out for himself and always has been.
Now, do I feel sorry for Vienna? No. She fell hook, line, and sinker for this guy thinking he was genuine. That was her first mistake. Don’t buy this stuff that Jake dumped her because he suspected she was cheating on him. Please. The guy dumped her because he had no use for her anymore that he’s not on TV every week. And when TMZ caught Jake at LAX yesterday and we hear Jake saying he and Vienna “will always be friends”, only to have a couple hours later some details of the exclusive she gave to “Star” come out, obviously they have there wires crossed. I can’t imagine a guy you’re accusing of not sleeping with you for four months and basically calling a fraud is gonna want to remain friends with her. Jake probably had no idea she had told her story to “Star” since there’s no way he would’ve said they’d remain friends. Whatever the case, the best news in all of this is that both will hopefully vanish into thin air to never be heard from again. It was fun guys. Now scram.
The show begins Aug. 9th, has 19 former contestants on it (11 girls & 8 guys) who will compete in challenges and go on dates, with the lone remaining person winning $250,000. The girls vote out the guys, and the guys vote out the girls. The good thing is, a lot of these contestants have some “relationship” history with other contestants. Well, I use the term “relationship” very loosely, since they all do. Basically, a lot of them have hooked up before. You can draw your own conclusion as to what you think “hooked up” means. Certain cases it does mean sex, certain cases it doesn’t. But the show’s press release, and cast bios, makes you well aware that some of their past relationships will be brought up in the house. Couple things to point out before getting to the people involved:
-The show is only on for six weeks. And there’s 19 people. So as you can see, we’re gonna be getting more than one elimination ceremony per episode. My guess is you’ll see 4 gone the first episode, maybe 3 or 4 gone the next, another 2 or 3 gone by the third episode, then 3 to 4 gone each of the fifth and sixth episodes. Why? I’m hearing there’s going to be a live finale where everybody is brought back to I guess vote on the winner. Not sure exactly how that’s going to work, but ummmmm, they’re all getting brought back.
-I have a feeling the show will make up rules as they go along to keep certain people around. Yes, each side is voting out the others, but I’m sorry, people like Kiptyn, Tenley, Wes, and Gia aren’t going home early. They’re just not. Those people are fresh in people’s minds and are people that others want to see. You honestly think anyone gives a rat’s ass if Crazy Michelle sticks around til the end? Or someone like Juan? No, because they weren’t that memorable from their season. We will see once it all plays out (or I get more information) but my money is on those people will last long on the show.
As for the “hookups”, here’s what I can tell you:
-Yesterday I mentioned Jesse Kovacs and Elizabeth Kitt have been bumping uglies for a few months now. Very well known in the “Bachelor/ette” world those two are hooking up. Also well known that Jesse Kovacs is shattering Bob Guiney’s record of 5 ½ women all across America. I don’t know all of them, I just know there’s a lot. Ask around. I’m sure you can find out. His male whore-ness is becoming quite legendary.
-Nikki’s bio says: “…but will her romantic past with a fellow contestant work to her advantage this time around?” Nikki and Juan were “dating” for a little bit, and it didn’t end well at all. Which is to say expect it to be brought up in the house and fireworks to ensue. Nikki is not a fan of his.
-Wes has a thing for Gia. I know because he told me about a month ago when I went to see him in concert. When I say a “thing”, just means I know he thinks she’s hot. To each their own…ha ha. So I would expect something to happen with those two. However, Gia is back with her ex-boyfriend hockey player Chris Campoli of the Ottawa Senators. So either she signed her contract to do the show before she got back with him, or she signed it after and just isn’t planning on hooking up with anyone. Hard to resist Mr “They saaaaaaayyyyy love, it don’t come eeeeeeeeeaassssyyyy”. We’ll see what happens.
-Natalie is like the little kissing bandit. I think she makes out with everyone from this show. Definitely Jesse Kovacs, so I wonder if one of the challenges will be her and Elizabeth Kitt having a pillow over who gets to do him…ha ha. But if Jesse is taken with Elizabeth and can’t keep his dong in his pants, my guess is Natalie will go after Wes or Jesse Beck from Ali’s season. She has a thing for bad boys.
-There’s the Tenley and Kiptyn situation as well. Very good friends, have seen a lot of each other outside the show, but I’ve heard it’s not serious. Plus, you all know Tenley. The last thing she’s gonna do is go into that house a start whore-ing it up. Ain’t happening. But it will be interesting to see her and Kiptyn’s interaction while on the show since they’re probably two of the favorites.
-Krisily is just boy crazy. I have absolutely no idea who she’ll hook up with, but I can guarantee you it’s somebody.
-If the Weatherwuss even touches another girl’s skin I’ll be shocked. He’s going to be a rather early exit if you ask me.
-Gwen and Peyton are total wild cards. Whatever the case, I’m a big fan of Peyton. Down with the whole southern accent and doesn’t look like she was molded in a plastic surgeon’s office. So, lets hope she doesn’t tongue everyone in the house.
If I get spoilers or more info on it, by all means, I’ll share it. I know that all 19 of them live in bunk beds in the living room of the mansion, each group of sexes will compete in the challenges (so one guy wins and one girl wins), and then that person chooses three people to go on a date with. During that date with the three other people, they give the rose to one person who then becomes immune from that night’s vote, and then those two continue on with their date somewhere else. During that time, a fantasy suite card is presented that they can choose to use. The fantasy suite is upstairs in the mansion, so, basically if you’re loud in bed, everyone will hear you. However, I have no idea if this fantasy suite card is presented on every 1-on-1 situation or not. But lets just say the rest of the cast might wanna be wearing earplugs if Jesse Kovacs and Elizabeth Kitt end up in the fantasy suite. Paint might start peeling from the walls.
