Your episode-by-episode spoilers for “Bachelor Pad 2” are in a link at the top of the page, or or click here. You’ve been warned.
The “Bachelor Pad” finale is taping today. I’m very sure I will have the spoilers for you here tonight. I don’t know the exact time, but I fully expect to have them. So come back to the site later on tonight to find out how it all shakes down. If you follow me on Twitter, are a Facebook friend, or are on the Reality Steve Facebook Fan Page, I will be posting when the column is up if you don’t want to keep coming back and hitting refresh.
It was announced today that the finale next week will be 3 hours – again. I’m guessing this means the episode will be two hours, then what they’re taping today will be the last hour. My gosh. This show has completely gone overboard. Do we really need a 3 hour finale? Especially since there’s only one challenge in Vegas. Jason, Ali, and Trista vote Kirk and Ella as the worst team, and that’s it. They go back to LA, and all it is is Michael and Holly deciding which couple they want to take to the finals. That’s really going to last 2 hours? God help us.
Another side note, I’m off to Vegas again this weekend, so I’m going to put the “Reader Emails” column up on Thursday instead of Friday. I leave early Thursday morning, so I’ll either put it up late Wednesday night, or after I check in on Thursday, so right now, the email bag is kinda low. Anyone who wants their email posted in the column, get them to me in the next couple days and I can pretty much guarantee they’ll go in. I think I only have six right now.
Since the “Keeping up with the Kardashians” finale was covered over two days, the recap for that show is now up covering both episodes.
Also, we have added a new writer to the site. Her name is Elizabeth Spilotro and she will be covering the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” The link is at the top of the page, and her columns will be up every Tuesday from here on out. Today’s column has been posted. I don’t watch the show, but obviously I’m aware of the suicide by one of the women’s husband. I’m sure Elizabeth has her thoughts on it, and whatever was shown last night, and I’m sure it will be handled in a classy way. I mean, there’s really nothing funny about suicide, so, don’t expect her to crack any jokes about the guy. She is a mom who also writes for a website www.thislittlemama.com that I’ve linked to as well in her column.
As for Twitter Pad, not much going on last night since the whole cast essentially got sequestered in an LA hotel, so they have to give up their phones last night and all of today. Of course, Blake still found a way to get in a pissing match with a former cast member that no one cares about anymore. Leave it to Blake of all people to give the angry leprechaun the time of day. Blake just doesn’t get it. He’s obviously very thin skinned and cannot handle criticism of any sort. Just ignore the haters, you dolt. Quit responding to everyone and everything that says something about you. No one cares anymore. Let it go. Man, some of these people just cannot deal with any type of negative publicity at all. I don’t get it. Don’t go on the show if you can’t deal with it. Seriously.
The episode starts off pretty much like last year’s started off around this point in the game: Partner up with someone for the rest of the game. Well gee, Kasey & Vienna are a team, Holly & Michael are a team, Kirk and Ella are a team, and so are Michelle & Graham. There’s only two people left. This wasn’t such a big deal since Erica and Blake didn’t have a choice but to attach themselves to each other, which is what Erica was hoping for. They’re then told to get to know their partner, so off they went to start asking each other stuff you would on a first date. I think. Kirk tells Ella his first kiss was at 15, and he first got laid at 18. Ella has a size 34C bra. Ummmm, I know Bachelor Pad really scrapes the bottom of the barrel for their questions, but I highly doubt one of them would be “What’s your partners bra size?” But hey, better safe than sorry, right? Sure, why not give out your bra size to all of America. That’s normal. Or not.
Kasey and Vienna figure they have this competition in the bag because they’re an actual couple and know everything about each other. Holly and Michael would be their only real competition since they dated for two years, but Kasey is sure that he and Vienna have this one in the bag. So sure, he even tells us he can smell victory, and emphasizes this point by running two fingers underneath his nose. Oh boy. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing he’s telling us about his girlfriend. I’m gonna pretend I didn’t see that. And so should the rest of the viewing audience. Because for the life of me, I can’t imagine anyone wants the image in their head of what Vienna…forget it. Lets move on. I just had a late night snack and I’d rather not see it all over my carpet. Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts…
So the “Nearly-Wed Game” begins and I hated the editing. Can we at least see who’s getting answers right to what questions? They were all over the board with stuff, and next thing you know, teams were racking up points and we didn’t even know what questions they were getting right or wrong. Of course, Graham and Michelle nailed every question because they had a strategy. That was interesting, since no one else did, nor did anyone think of trying to do it. So that begs the question: After Chris told the teams the night before to get to know your partner, did Graham and Michelle cheat since they didn’t get to know each other and just developed a system for answering all questions, or, was it brilliant strategy? Hmmmm, I kinda see both sides on this one. Blake and Erica hung toe-to-toe with them and didn’t even know each other. But I guess all is fair in love and war, and if you’re gonna press me on it, I’ll say that Graham and Michelle pretty much outwitted everyone with their “system” of answers. Hey, everyone else could’ve done it if they wanted, and none of them thought of it, so, Graham and Michelle deserved to win the competition. Although I still see both sides to the equation, in the end, they outwitted everyone in the house. Nobody said they couldn’t do it, so I guess it’s fair.
Some of the questions:
-How many dates does your partner need before making whoopee? I think Vienna said something like “22.” Wow. Ummmm, I think Dave Good and Wes would tend to disagree with that number. More on that later.
-If your partner was an animal, what animal would he be? Blake told Erica he wanted to be a flying squirrel. This guy is just out there sometimes. Holly and him deserve each other.
-Which quality about you does your ex miss the most? Vienna said her boobs, Kasey thought she’d say her teeth. Yeah, Kasey really blew that one. I seriously doubt any of Vienna’s ex’s miss her teeth. C’mon, man. Think like a man! Boobs!
-If your partner could kiss one member of the opposite sex in the house, who would it be? Gee, never thought in a million years Blake would say Holly.
-If your partner could sleep with one other person in the house, who would it be? Holly says Blake, which led to the line of the night by Michael where he says “I don’t like Blake. I want to punch him in his perfect dentist teeth.” We hear ya’ Michael. And probably most people watching this show wish you would’ve.
-Who is your partners least favorite person in the house? Seems like everyone answered Blake on this one. Can’t imagine why. He seems to be making friends left and right on this show. Such a cordial, caring, and respectful guy who never seems to be a smarmy, condescending, cocky, obnoxious, a-hole to anyone. Weird.
-How many people has your partner had sex with? I don’t think we saw anyone’s answer on this. Well, other than Graham and Michelle’s “7”, since that was their answer to every question that dealt with a number.
-Who is most likely to cheat? This is where Graham answered “Michael” and everyone was on to their little game since nobody seemed to think Michael would be the answer to that question.
-How old was your partner when they lost their virginity? Dammit, couldn’t we have seen all the answers to this one? Kasey’s was 21, and Blake said he got started early at “16”. I hate to tell you this Blake, but I have ya’ beat by a year. Sophomore year of high school. Guess you didn’t get started early enough.
-The final question was: Who is your partners secret crush? It came down to the Blake/Erica team vs Michelle/Graham. Erica got it wrong, Michelle got it right, and whaddya’ know, Michelle & Graham win. Blake & Erica came in 2nd, and for their efforts, they get to have a 1-on-1 date. Which basically sealed their fate.
