Bachelor Pad 3 couple Blakeley Jones and Tony Pieper have split less than two months after getting engaged on the reality show's season finale, People reports.
Jones, who appeared on Ben Flajnik's season of The Bachelor, and Pieper, who...
On the September 10 finale of ABC's Bachelor Pad, Tony Pieper surprised his new girlfriend (and fellow castoff contestant) Blakeley Jones by getting down on one knee and popping the question.
Even more unexpected than the romantic gesture?
"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.
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.
We begin with Emily chatting with her mom while the men are meeting Chris in the courtyard to get the first date card of the week, which goes to Chris. Before we know it, they're walking through downtown Charlotte, hand-in-hand, until they reach a building — that they'll have to climb up. The ropes fall from the top and the harnesses come out and the two are getting ready to scale the wall. As they're climbing, the wind picks up and lighting flashes, so Emily starts to freak out. And it doesn't help there's now a crowd below. They soon reach the top, but rather than kissing her, Chris gives Emily a high-five. How, um, romantic?
It's Week 2 of The Bachelorette and for the first time, we see a local news report about the filming of the show. Apparently this is a big deal for Charlotte, N.C.
Emily gets together with some girlfriends to tell them about her first night. Must be nice to be allowed to chat with friends, rather than have the usual solitary confinement our Bachelors and Bachelorettes experience. At the house, Chris announces the first one-on-one date, which goes to Ryan. But rather than the glamorous or adventurous dates viewers are used to, Emily takes Ryan home to bake cookies for her daughter's soccer team. Ryan seems right at home with the apron on and the two seem to be effortless together. Once the cookies are done, they're off to the soccer field where Ryan waits in the car as Emily brings the kids the goodies. Ryan seems in awe of watching Em in her element.
But the date isn't all comfy clothes and baking cookies. At night, the pair gets dolled up. (Love Ryan's silvery suit!) The Charlotte fandom is even waiting outside the restaurant for their arrival. Once inside, Emily doesn't waste much time before asking Ryan about his exes. He's had two serious relationships, he says. They then delve deep into how to pursue someone and how Emily's new man will eventually fit into Ricki's life. Ryan lays it on by telling Emily how attractive she was making cookies and that he likes her already. Clearly, he gets the rose. Dinner is capped off with dancing to a live performance from Emily's favorite band, Gloriana. But no kisses just yet!
The Bachelorette is back! It feels like it was just yesterday that we watched Ashley and J.P. find love and now it's time to join Emily as she searches for her happy ending. Will her season end in another proposal for her? Time to find out.
We re-meet Emily and hear her story about getting engaged to NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, who died a few months later in a plane crash. Shortly after his death, Emily found out she was pregnant and is now raising her 6-year-old daughter Ricki. Although Emily's engagement to previous Bachelor Brad Womack ended, she still believes in the process and hopes to find love again.
