"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.
It's no secret the Bachelor Pad contestants love being in the pool, but what about when it's filled with ice cream?
Bachelor Pad's Chris Harrison: No one was sad that the twins left
In this sneak peek from Monday's episode, the ladies strip down and compete in a challenge called "Hot Sludge Fundaes." Kalon — and his knack for saying the wrong thing — has flown under the radar so far, but watch what he insensitively remarks about one of the women.
Episode 2 of Bachelor Pad picks up immediately after the rose ceremony, and Erica Rose is smiling ear to ear. David, though, knows he has a huge target on his back now. Brittney and Erica, meanwhile, are screaming at each other, crying, calling each other sluts, and threatening to leave. "Every guy's fantasy is twins, but I don't think they've met these twins yet," Lindzi says, putting it perfectly.
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.
The Bachelorette's Emily Maynard isn't the only one conflicted over which man she should choose. TVGuide.com users are too!
In a recent poll asking if Emily should choose Arie, Jef, neither or the recently eliminated Sean, voters were almost evenly split between the guys.
It's my favorite episode of The Bachelorette season when Emily reunites with her more memorable "exes." First, Emily chats with Chris Harrison about some of the more interesting and dramatic moments throughout the season, including Ryan's "trophy wife" comment and Kalon's "baggage" remark and some of the painfully awkward times like Doug's mid-breakup kiss. So what did the men have to say for themselves? Let's find out!
Not yet! First, we get...
Ryan and Emily
After enduring weeks of cocky comments, The Bachelorette's Emily finally let Ryan go — but not without him putting up a fight.
"It was a big hurdle for her to realize it wasn't right with Ryan," host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "She's very attracted to him, and a part of her wanted to say yes, but she has too many good guys here."
In our weekly chat, Harrison talks about Ryan's "weird" exit, why they allowed Emily an extra rose and how next week's episode handles Arie's past relationship with a producer. Plus: How is the new Bachelor Pad cast doing?
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.
