This week's episode of Bachelor Pad picks up immediately after the tense rose ceremony with Ed and Jaclyn toasting their victory. But the celebrations are short-lived when Chris Harrison comes in and announces that their next challenge begins right away. The players are simply handed surveys and instructed to answer honestly.
"If at first you don't succeed try, try again." That's the mantra Bachelor Pad's Reid followed which ultimately cost him the game.
On the third episode of this summer's guilty pleasure, Reid attempted to get his Bachelorette Season 5 comrade Ed axed, but fell short thanks to Sarah cluing Ed into the plan. With help from Jaclyn, the duo turned the ploy around and got the Philadelphia realtor eliminated. And now that the back-stabbing has really begun, host Chris Harrison says it only gets more tense from here. Keep reading for more on the new alliances, why the challenge was harder than it looked and who Harrison says is sliding through the game.
On this week's Bachelor Pad, the man claws come out as Ed learns that Reid conspired, and failed, to get him out of the game. But first, Ed contemplates leaving until Jaclyn convinces him he needs to stay for her and her emotional sanity. "I don't like lying," Ed says. Oh, hey don't go on a competition reality show then! But ultimately Ed admits he wants to stay and is ready to fight back.
Just hours after Emily Maynard got her happy ending on The Bachelorette, it's already time to tune into the franchise's guilty pleasure hit, Bachelor Pad. So let's get to recapping!
The Bachelor Pad
What do you get when you take 21 very good-looking people and mix in a bunch of cameras, some alcohol, hot tubs and the chance to win $250,000? Bachelor Pad, of course.
Before Monday's premiere, we chatted with host Chris Harrison, who played a little game of word association with us and helped us size up the competition.
