This week's episode of Bachelor Pad showed that while some contestants will do anything for money, some will give up everything for love. Host Chris Harrison talks to TVGuide.com about Ames' grand exit to be with Jackie, his new love who was eliminated at the end of the episode. Plus: Harrison explains a component to the challenge viewers didn't see, how Vienna tried to stage a walkout and why next week's challenge is both the funniest and saddest in Bachelor history.
Viewers tuning into the Bachelor Pad premiere might've been expecting a Jake and Vienna showdown, but instead the one-time Bachelor gave his ex-fiance the immunity rose. Host Chris Harrison calls the decision the stupidest thing Jake could've ever done. Harrison shares his insight into the move that shook the house up and why Vienna's boyfriend Kasey will prove to be the strongest player this season. Plus: Why does Harrison think Justin "Rated R" would've done well in the game had he not been cut Week 1?
Even in the heat of August, there's still some trash that just smells like roses.
Oh come on, you know you love it. Ever since ABC announced that it was bringing back last summer's Bachelor Pad, fans of the dating-and-mating series have been salivating over the drama being drummed up for round 2.

Would he try to excuse his hateful behavior during their televised break-up? Over and over. Would the rest of the house be able to compare? You betcha...

Bachelor Pad's Kasey Kahl entered the competition with one goal in mind: Beat Jake Pavelka.
"He was the only guy that I really cared about beating," Kahl told TVGuide.com. "I've got the girl, I've got the love and now I'm going for the money and to oust Jake."

With a second season of Bachelor Pad now officially in the works, we asked previous Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants whether they'd be up for the spin-off series. While some have no doubts about doing it, others were a bit more conflicted.
