"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.
"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.
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.
