Rachel Trueheart and Nick Peterson
In a tense and frankly surprising ending on the Bachelor Pad Season 3 finale, Nick Peterson came out the sole victor, taking home the $250,000 prize. But how did Rachel get cut from the winnings? And which couple got engaged? Read on to see what went down.
"Money is ugly."
Who knew that when we first heard Rachel say that during a preview for this season of Bachelor Pad, she'd be talking about the decision that could ruin her relationship with her best friend Jaclyn.
On the penultimate episode of the ABC reality series, Nick and Rachel dominated the final challenge and got to choose whether Chris and Sarah or Ed and Jaclyn would join them in the finale. Shockingly, Rachel went along with her partner's wishes and ousted her bestie. Below, host Chris Harrison shares why he feels sorry for Rachel and previews next week's "wild" finale. Plus: What was it like rocking out with '80s band Night Ranger?
It's the penultimate episode of Bachelor Pad, and we're down to the final four couples. At this point, the game really comes down to winning challenges. So, who's one step closer to the $250,000 prize? Let's find out.
Chris Harrison announces that after the next competition, one couple will leave immediately. The teams go outside for "Hanging by a Thread," which challenges the players' brains and brawn.
Bachelor Pad host Chris Harrison admits he was shocked by the outcome of this week's spelling bee competition.
"I did not foresee Chris and Sarah being such a force," he tells TVGuide.com. "Ed is a well-educated man and Jaclyn is a smart woman, so I really thought they would do well."
This week's Bachelor Pad begins immediately after last week's crazy twist, and Rachel is hysterical that Michael, whom she's falling in love with, has left. Chris Harrison comes into the house to tell everyone there are now just 10 of them left and they'll be competing as couples from here on out. Nick, the odd man out, is now with heartbroken Rachel. Meanwhile, everyone is shocked that Chris is still in the game and everyone seems to want him gone.
Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan
One day after ABC announced that Kelly Ripa's new Live! With Kelly co-host would be named on the Sept. 4 episode, TMZ reports that Michael Strahan has been picked to succeed Regis Philbin.

The Bachelor Pad victor has finally fallen.
Just when it seemed that house womanizer Chris would experience some payback, a twist was revealed: The players would vote out a woman who would then single-handedly choose a man to exit with her. Last year's winner Michael, aware he'd be on the chopping block, tried to get his friend Erica out. But when his plan was discovered, she turned right around and took him out with her.
This week's Bachelor Pad begins with Blakeley celebrating the fact that her "shady" partner's plan didn't work and instead her alliance had her back. And now she's more than ready to get Chris, who's hiding in his bunk bed, out of the house. Of course, instead of manning up, Chris looks to call out Kalon for possibly lying to him about his vote. "I need to smack that kid in the face," Chris says before calling him an idiot to his face. Chris next goes to Ed and asks why he too lied to him. "I had to do what my partner wanted to do, respect that," Ed says. Chris then gets heated and he and Ed go at it. Chris seems to be making enemies left and right.
Kelly Ripa's new co-host will make his or her debut on Tuesday, Sept. 4, ABC has announced.
Ripa, who's been hosting Live! With Kelly without a permanent co-host since Regis Philbin's departure in November, will kick off a brand new season on Monday, Sept. 3. The broadcast will mark Ripa's first time hosting solo. She'll be joined by her new partner the following day, when the pair will welcome guests Claire Danes and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips.
If Bachelor Pad's Chris was in hot water with the women last week, this week his situation started boiling over.
After ditching his partner Blakeley to hook up with Jamie, Chris then made the ultimate switch by choosing Sarah for his one-on-one date. When they didn't come home until the next morning, the ladies got angry. Fortunately for Chris, he was safe this week and was able to get one member of his love square out of the house. But in doing so, host Chris Harrison says Chris has put a big, fat target on his back.
