Bachelor Pad

Bachelor Pad Finale Recap – 9/13/10

Even if I didn’t spoil it on Thursday that Natalie would try and pretend she had “Keep”, it was pretty obvious that she wouldn’t. She didn’t have the greatest poker face up there. Not a chance in hell she wasn’t going to split it with Dave. As for next season, obviously I think “Bachelor Pad 2” will need to change a few things up. You can’t possibly have the same ending, since everyone will know going in what it is and they can start having that conversation much earlier in the game about splitting the money, etc. So that part I’m sure will change. The challenges pretty much all sucked, so I’m guessing that will change too. The addition of Melissa Rycroft Strickland Mesnick Pavelka (you know she once dated Jake, right?) UPDATE: Let me correct myself since Melissa’s fans have their panties in a bunch now. I should’ve said Melissa “went out” with him once. Not dated him once. There’s a difference. Dating constitutes they went out numerous times. They didn’t. But they did go out. Melissa should take that up with Jake. He’s the one who told numerous people they did. Ok, back to your regularly scheduled column. did nothing to enhance the show, but I’m guessing ABC has her on some lifetime contract that will keep her there. As for cast members, I’m sure they’re going to stock up on more guys from Ali and Jillian’s season. They saw what casting people from 7 seasons or longer ago did, which is nothing. No one cared, nor really remembered anything about those people. So I would expect the cast to be somewhat fresher.

So that wraps our first season of “Bachelor Pad”. Highly entertaining, a lot of drama, lots of unprotected sex, and more contestants now trying to make a name for themselves somewhere else in the entertainment world. Oh boy. Can’t wait. There’s only so many spots available in Hollywood. Lets see how many can actually make a career out of it. I’ll throw out my guess: None. But hey, that certainly won’t stop them from trying. The tabloids love this show and as long as it’s still on the air, some of these people will still seem relevant. Anything to keep their name in the news. Only problem is, once the next season rolls around, these people will pretty much be forgotten. So outside of a seedy sex tape coming out, or some scandalous threesome, their time is running out. I wish them all the best.

That’s it for this week. Check back next week for the long awaited apology as I set the record straight on something in the “Bachelor” franchise that I misreported. Any questions, comments, emails, praises, criticisms, feel free to email me at any of the information listed above in the “Contact Me” link. Until then?

    Showsreality, look at what people are saying about you, referring to Tenley:

    Crazy Michelle: “Oh yeah. I want to see her cry. I want her heart to break. See these leather boots? I skinned your pet calf and ate the meat.”

    Lovely, Michelle, just lovely. You need to go crawl back under your rock for a long, long time.

    I think all of us have about enough comments about how annoying Tenley is. Most of us anyway. Most of us agree she is annoying and immature. enough already. @ showsreality–follow you own advice and ‘scroll on by’–GET LOST in other have nothing interesting to say and you are paranoid thinking you are being attatcked.

    “I will ask you to refrain from tossing accusations at me, the purpose of the board is to discuss The Bachelor Pad characters, and the show….It is not to diss accusations at another poster just because you happen to favor a character…
    You don’t see me dissing any of you, or dissing you for thinking the way you do….I will have no qualms reporting you to the board administrator if you continue to accuse me.
    Stop the accusations and discuss the case, not posters.”

    Well, I think pretty much proves that you are Michele. Not an accusation…unless you think that being a specific person is bad.

    No worries…I do think you’re really beautiful. I just think you’re a little crazy, that’s all. But I’m with you — I HATE Tenley. I mean, she’s nice, I suppose, but so annoying and way overplays her “sweet and innocent” persona. Overdramatic.

    Don’t be ashamed of who you are, Showsreality/Michele.

    Observation –

    When I read the first post from Showsreality my first thought was “I bet this is Michelle from the show”. Every post from Showsreality since the first one has only confirmed that thought.

    No one will ever know for sure if Showsreality IS Michelle or not because of the way this forum is set up. But everyone reading it has a right to an opinion, based on what they observe.

    Bachelor Pad allowed or offered (depending on whether you think that editing or behavior is in play) the participants to show themselves in a different light than their orginal shows. I also remember what a jerk David appeared to be on Jillian’s season and thought he seemed much more calm this time around. Wes was delightful on the Bachelor Pad. Michelle and Elizabeth both came off the same way in both shows – kooky and unflattering.

    My .02 worth….

    ‘Beauty is as beauty “does” ‘. An old saying with a lot of truth. I too thought Michelle was VERY beautiful –in face & body. Much more attractive than Tenley as far as physical beauty goes–but with the personality of a snake. holy jesus christ! What makes for a lasting marriage is not beauty. Beauty is transitory. A warm heart and a caring personality are the qualities I would look for in a woman if I was a man. I am not surprised Michelle is desperate-! men must run fro her in droves- and remember how she was ranting to Jake when she was demanding he kiss her? she kept saying i am here because i want a husband and children-!!! Michelle should not consider marriage or childbearing until she can get act together mentally and emotionally – !! and that will take an enormous amount of work & $$$.
    I doubt a waitress salary can afford that. plus poor michelle is not inspired to get better. she just wants to blame & lash out. like a snake.

    Twinkle Twinkley doesn’t wash very often….Some men have said she has quite a bit of an odor down there..Skippy likes it though..

    Twinkle bats her eyelashes and thinks the smell will go away….lol

  8. k-dog

    September 18, 2010 at 12:17 PM


    That’s a really low blow…but, I’m curious: what men have said this? Who did you hear that from? Only three men have been down there (her ex husband, Jake, and Kip (maybe)). While you know Jake and Kip, I can’t really imagine either of them telling you this info. She looks like she washes all the time to me. Squeaky clean.

  9. adria921

    September 18, 2010 at 1:28 PM

    @showsreality – and you talk about how it’s not fair to “attack” others. what did you just do? saying tenley smells bad “down there”…holy christ – how in hell would you know-? you disgust me. you’re immature and a nut case. go to hell!

  10. julieann123

    September 18, 2010 at 7:13 PM

    I agree with adria921 – “beauty is as beauty does”. I also think that Michelle is very pretty but the minute she talks and moves she blows it all. Natalie is also pretty but her cheap behavior makes her less attractive. I can’t think of her name – but she was the woman with the little boy on Jake’s season – now she was beautiful physically and conducted herself in such a way that made her even more attractive. There was a girl on another season too – the one with the military MD as the bachelor – forgive me, I can’t remember his name or the girl — but she was very pretty inside/out too. You would think these girls on these shows would over-all think about how they act – especially when they are on TV! I realize the kooky ones like Michelle, Elizabeth, “Monkey” …are good for “Springer” type ratings and that the show wants that – but my gosh, these girls do have families and jobs back home that they will have to return to at some point and they are obviously not thinking of that while on the show!

    Prediction: we will be seeing a lot more of the Former Real Live Disney Princess.

    I thought Michelle let her off pretty easy, considering that she lost her chance at winning $250K because for some reason, the “popular girl” wanted her to be the first one voted off the island!

    As with the Bachelor that spawned it, the most interesting thing about this show is the way it reflects the culture.

    It solidifies my conviction that within another two generations, people who “don’t even have ANY reality show” will be ostracized and automatically, if vaguely, suspect, unable to obtain employment, mortgage loans, or marriage partners.

    thank-you julieann123. i also loved those older more mature women that knew how to behave like ladies. polish is always polish and good manners & behavior will take you everywhere. yes how can some of these young women live with the embarassment of seeing themselves on national tv behaving like such idiots? and indeed-what must their families think? if i had a sister like one of these “girls” i’d have to hang my head in shame.

    i disagree with bahuruplya – god help us all if in a few years people without reality show experience will be sol. people have got to come to their senses & SOON. reality tv is the not the be-all and end-all of existence. most people –thank god –have regular LIVES to live and do not worship tv & reality shows. i watch these shows for comic relief and so i can say thank god it’s not me doing THAT!

    Natalie is from my hometown and she comes from a very upstanding family. I am not personal friends with her mother but from all accounts, she is a truly lovely and lady-like woman.

    This weekend is our annual community festival – called “The Pumpkin Festival” (we’re the “pumpkin capitol of the world”) and I thought how fun it might have been for Natalie and her family to have her in town this weekend after being on TV, providing she had behaved a little better.

    bahurupiya……….Wonder why Twinkle Twinkle wanted Michelle out of the show so fast? …..The only thing Michelle did was vie for Jake the Fake and Jake sent her home pretty early, so really she was not dire competition to Twinkle…..What would Twinkle have done if Vienna was on the Bachelor Pad, shit some rainbows?….lmao

    Same went for Craig M…..Elizabeth just had to have him out…What was the obsession with wanting him, did he have better boobs than her….lol

    Twinkle Twinkle has some fish odor, that’s the word.
    She might need to wash more and stop thinking sprays and makeup covers odors…

    Who can forget Ella, who was so classy until she opened her mouth at the ATR ceremony, what was that rant she was on like a blabbering idiot….That there sealed her class and showed her true colors.

    September 19, 2010 at 1:54 PM

    i don’t think showsreality is michelle after all – i think she’s a junior high “girl” obsessed with making remarks about female private parts. she’s perseverating which is what a lot of immature dorky kids
    do. and the truth is showsreality probably has some foul smelling snatch herself so that is why she talks about other “girls” having a nasty smelling snatch.

    No, it is Michelle…100%. I know this for a fact.

    k-dog-how do you know for sure? i can’t believe that 29 year old michelle could be so immature as to be fixated on female snatches. and how they smell. that’s junior high stuff-!

    wow this last post of showsreality proves she is not michelle but a stupid, immature jr high school girl–a dorky dateless girl at that. she wants attention so she perseverates on smelly female twats.
    i’m laughing MY ass off at how ridiculous this is!

  21. Showsreality

    September 20, 2010 at 3:54 AM

    Now it smells even worse, was Twinkle Twinkly in here…Skippy needs a hose to hose her down a bit..
    Oh looky looo the stalkers are here…Oh my, some lonely lives out there….lmao

  22. k-dog

    September 20, 2010 at 10:21 AM

    She’s playing it up, Adria. Don’t forget that you’re dealing with someone with a lot of screws loose. Age is not a factor — this is an online comment forum, not a dinner table. I do know 100% that it is her, and I’ll just leave it at that.

    September 21, 2010 at 12:25 AM

    @showsreality has a monikor for almost everyone on the show, except Michelle.

    If Tenley is Twinkle, then Michelle is Ding Dong.

    Ding Dong appears to be obsessed with Twinkle.

    Really not a good idea for any reality show contestant to be hanging around message boards reading this stuff. Not good for one’s mental health–unless you’re Ding Dong and you don’t care.

  26. adria921

    September 21, 2010 at 1:12 AM

    michelle has a nothing life and is totally ding-dong to go on and on about women’s privates & how they smell. ..and how skippy needs to hose down tenley-? like that is even remotely possible. who thinks stuff up like that? unless they are a nutcase & bat shit CRAZY! or a junior high dateless 14 year old with no friends.

  27. Showsreality

    Does Skippy like cheese?…lol

    Moogan21, Brad was already a Bachelor, and he chose nobody. Ali hadn’t been a previous Bachelorette. If it’s true that they are bringing Brad back, there is no way I’ll watch. The last time was a total train wreck, and I imagine this time would be even worse. The guy was a TOTAL loser!!

  30. Moogan21

    September 21, 2010 at 3:23 PM

    Dianne, yup – i know that….
    i’m just stating they got good ratings when they reused ali (from jake’s season to her own). they probs just want to see if reusing brad from his season to this one will create enough interest to keep us watching this terrible show..

    maybe they’ll reuse some of the girls that’ve been on other bach seasons for him to choose his *soul mate* from?.. gagg.
    it’ll be round 2 for everyone!! hahah.. that’d be hilarious.

  31. Dianne

    September 21, 2010 at 4:05 PM

    LOL @ Moogan21! Reusing the female castoffs from past seasons would be a riot! I can so see that happening!! Why, oh why, do we make ourselves suffer by watching this stuff, ha!

    Brad a bachelor again?…….Boring!……maybe DeAnna will come running back….She wanted him so bad…
    Wes would have made a great Bachelor.

    Twinkle Twinkle is gone now hopefully Skippy dips her into the ocean every few days so she can get that smell out…

    September 22, 2010 at 12:29 AM

    I was just waiting for Showsreality to respond here. It has been my entertainment since this blog was posted. If it is not Michelle could be a crazy family member or friend. Never know 🙂

  35. Showsreality

    September 22, 2010 at 5:01 AM

    Excellent…..glad someone can entertain you….Guess again….lmao

    I should wave to Michelle, Vienna…crazy Krissly that allowed herself to be used by David….hope he sells not one copy of his stupid mancode…Hello Nikki.
    Yes, Gwen was a great gal, so was Peyton….

    Twinkle Twinkle needs to wash down there she smells fishy.

  36. Showsreality

    September 22, 2010 at 5:06 AM

    Waiting for boring Brad to be The Bachelor, and DeAnna biting her nails as she watches and break into a sweat.

    Old Goat Trista thinks she still has what it takes, i bet there are lots of fires when her husband is on duty…lol….Did she take any voice lessons yet, the old whining goat.

    September 22, 2010 at 12:18 PM

    good gawd Showsreality, YOU are the boring one. On, and on, and on about Tenley. Get over it already. And hey, you just pretty much admitted you are Michelle when you said “Yes, Gwen was a great gal, so was Peyton”. Now, run along little Michelle and get some professional help to allow you to get the frig over Tenley! Enough already!

    September 22, 2010 at 5:51 PM

    Oh my gosh would y’all shuuut-upppp about showsreality & michelle? Do the BP contestants read the comments on realitysteve? yes, likely. Do they post here? doubtful. Think, people. The deal with Tenley and Michelle is probably this: Tenley comes to the show feeling very insecure, her husband cheated on her and she considers herself “jilted” by Jake. She’s not feeling super-confident about herself. She does, though, have friendships within the group and as an insecure insider is wont to do… she targets someone weaker than herself, someone who doesn’t have friends to back her up, someone who has been proven to be easily riled up. I actually think it was a cr*ppy thing to do to Michelle, but it’s called backstabbing, Tenley probably calls it “playing the game”. She played it as she chose and got what she wanted, Kip-Ten in the end, but she has to live with the fact that she did to someone else what she was afraid would be done with her. That was her choice at the time, not a great one since it ended up costing her a lot of fans in the long run; Michelle got stuck paying the price in the short run, welcome to reality tv.

    @Showsreality’s comments sound like something that would be written on a grade school bathroom wall. We are all aware of the editing/negative typecasting done by the show, but @showsreality’s comments make Michelle look much worse than she already does. The question remains, what is there to like about Michelle, after this?

    @showsreality, since you seem to know Michelle pretty well… what do you know about this?

  41. Showsreality

    September 23, 2010 at 6:29 AM

    developed quite a following, despite how sick and grade school they post…..lmao

    Twinkle Twinkley did you wash up a bit today, stop spraying them sprays get into the tub and wash that smell.

    September 23, 2010 at 1:13 PM

    Oh dear, poor Juan. Hope he gets away from Michelle before she makes him as crazy as she is. Michelle, you’re english grammar is getting the best of you..might be time for you to leave here and go haunt somewhere else. WTF is “grade school they post”???

    September 23, 2010 at 4:26 PM

    at first i thought @showsreality was michelle but now i just think it is someone craving attention and they are obviously getting it. Yes Michelle is a bit crazy but i’m sure she does not sit around all day thinking of new twinkle twinkley jokes. and if it is her then im sure she is just craving attention… whoever it is they are on the hunt for some attention and i think we should just all ignore it… what you guys think? u really think it is her?

    Twinkle Twinkle smelly star, is crying again on Facebook, someone said something to her and she is crying….It was rather a good comment and she should have taken it in stride and learned from it, rather than crying and yet throwing yet another tantrum.

    September 27, 2010 at 9:40 PM

    I agree with Jane B. Responding to people who prefer a certain contestant as if it’s the contestant themselves posting is childish and stupid.

    @Dianne “Michelle, you’re english grammar is getting the best of you”

    You’re grammar? Dear lord, proof read before you criticize someone for grammar, woman.

    Showsreality, stop spamming. The rest of you, stop pretending she’s Michelle. A lot of the audience can’t stand Tenley either, get over it.

    September 29, 2010 at 1:43 AM
