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.
Michael Stagliano and Lindzi Cox
The new cast of ABC's Bachelor Pad has been announced, and it includes Season 2 winner Michael Stagliano, Ben Flajnik's runner-up Lindzi Cox, five "super fans" of the show and two rejects from Emily Maynard's current season of The Bachelorette.
This season of The Bachelor had its share of wild dates, awkward kisses, tense fights, hilarious one-liners and, well, Courtney. To celebrate these momentous and somewhat cringe-worthy moments, finalists Jaclyn, Jenna and Rachel are counting down TVGuide.com's Top 5 moments from the season.
The ladies arrive in San Francisco where Ben meets up with his sister Julia to tell her about some of the women who have stood out. He mentions, Lindzi, Courtney — with whom he thinks his sis would hit it off — Kacie B. and that Jennifer is the best kisser so far. Apparently, he and his sister are ...
It's Week 2 of The Bachelor and the women are off to Sonoma, Calif., to meet Ben in his hometown. While some of the women begin to form relationships with Ben, others continue their downward emotional spiral.
The first date card arrives at the house and it's for Kacie B. The others, of course, are jealous and Courtney even hopes she doesn't return. Ben arrives in his truck and takes her to explore his stomping grounds in downtown Sonoma. They head inside a café with a piano, and the two play a few chords before moving on to a candy shop. There, Kacie grabs a baton and shows off her twirling skills, which are impressive. Ben's twirling abilities? Not so much. They eventually land at dinner where Ben talks about returning to Sonoma after his father got sick. The conversation is easy. It's no surprise that Kacie gets a rose — and a kiss. And for an additional surprise Ben takes Kacie into a theater where a home video of her childhood — then his — is played.
