DeAnna Pappas, Graham Bunn, Gia Allemand
While Bachelor/Bachelorette reunions are usually filled with hooking up and hot tubs (a la Bachelor Pad), some previous contestants are using their name to make a difference.
TVGuide.com caught up with Bachelorette Season 4's Graham Bunn, whose company 46NYC prints and sells T-shirts for different charities to help them gather donations.
9/8c ABC Family
Summer reaches its halfway point (at least on Camp Victory's calendar) during this freshman series' midseason finale. This episode is the conclusion of last week's two-parter, and the drama intensifies as parents' weekend continues. Not only do the campers face challenges with their parents, but Dr. Rand does, too. Yet the major turmoil comes from the revelation of an unexpected romance that leaves some stunned and others heartbroken. It's a cruel summer indeed...

Tim Dekay and Matt Bomer, White Collar
Need a palette cleanse after the Moron Olympics of Monday's Bachelor Pad? That's why God gave us White Collar.
And even though last night's episode didn't feature the luminous guest-starring wattage of Hilarie Burton, it did deliver smarts and sophistication — not to mention the always glorious chemistry of Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer — to make up for her absence...
Peyton Wright and Jesse Beck
On this week's Bachelor Pad, the season's first relationship, Natalie and Jesse B., split, and each found someone new. Host Chris Harrison calls Jesse and his new hookup Peyton, "the most unlikely couple" in the franchise's history. Plus: What does Harrison think about Wes serenading the already-spoken-for Gia?
TVGuide.com: Did you expect Jesse and Peyton to get together?
Chris Harrison: No, I don't think anybody did...
Gia Allemand, Bachelor Pad
Is it something about the initials B.P. that inspire idiocy?
On last night's Bachelor Pad, we got quite possibly the single dumbest line in reality TV history when Gia, the swimsuit model so clearly unchallenged by thought, declared Wes "a modern-day Shakespeare."
Oh, honey. No wonder she was sent home.

Television was a place of intrigue this week. Top Chef set the tone with a CIA-themed challenge. Bachelor Pad showed us a classic double-cross. Ari fell victim to a well-executed bluff on Entourage. The Jersey Shore girls tried their hand at skullduggery. Hot in Cleveland threw Elka in the slammer for her covert ops. And True Blood revealed a madman's plan for world domination. Welcome to Top Moments: Cloak and Dagger Edition.
Bachelor Pad, Chris Harrison
After 19 previous Bachelor and Bachelorette contests in one house that led to tension, tears and hookups, Bachelor Pad host Chris Harrison still was "stunned" at just how quickly the house became split between the "cool kids" and the...
Oh my god, did you hear what Tenley said about Elizabeth? She like, totally, called her out for doing "it" with Kovacs in the shower. I know, right?!
Wow, what a crowd of overgrown high schoolers. Using language like "the outsiders," "the cool kids" and the ever popular "clique," the remaining Bachelor Pad dwellers devolved into vicious, unruly teens last night as they jockeyed for social supremacy within the house. It was like that Wild Kingdom scene in Mean Girls, only with giant fake breasts, oddly hairless, overworked torsos and Chris Harrison as the befuddled principal....
The Big C
The Big C
Cancer is no laughing matter. Then why is this new cable dramedy about a suburban Minneapolis housewife (the astoundingly talented Laura Linney) who's dying from melanoma so morbidly funny? Start with a stellar script that is insightful, moving and leavened with pointed and pertinent humor, and add in a top-flight cast that pumps life into what could be an extremely difficult subject. In the opening episode, the feisty and likable Cathy (Linney) tries to figure a way to tell her family — a teen son (Gabriel Basso), an estranged husband (Oliver Platt) and her homeless brother (John Benjamin Hickey) — the bad news.

In 14 seasons of The Bachelor and six seasons of The Bachelorette, a few people fighting for the final rose have also been in the race for money and fame (see: Justin, the "Rated R" wrestler). So it was only a matter of time before producers turned one of reality TV's biggest dating shows into a competition for love AND money. Bachelor Pad, premiering Monday at 8/7c on ABC, brings 19 contestants back to see who will find chemistry, who will walk away with some extra cash, and who will choose love over money? Bachelor winner-turned-runner-up Melissa Rycroft, now married and expecting her first child, returns to the show as a co-host. She talked to TVGuide.com about how it was "awkward" going from contestant to host and the "unreal" drama coming up this season...
