Bachelor Pad's Chris Harrison: I can't believe Nick took control of the game
So who deserves the money?
"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.
Bachelor Pad host Chris Harrison admits he was shocked by the outcome of this week's spelling bee competition.
"I did not foresee Chris and Sarah being such a force," he tells TVGuide.com. "Ed is a well-educated man and Jaclyn is a smart woman, so I really thought they would do well."
This week's Bachelor Pad begins immediately after last week's crazy twist, and Rachel is hysterical that Michael, whom she's falling in love with, has left. Chris Harrison comes into the house to tell everyone there are now just 10 of them left and they'll be competing as couples from here on out. Nick, the odd man out, is now with heartbroken Rachel. Meanwhile, everyone is shocked that Chris is still in the game and everyone seems to want him gone.
Bachelor Pad's Kalon may be floating through the season, but on Monday's episode, it's finally time for him to play the game.
In the exclusive preview clip below, Kalon plots heavily to save himself in the game. "In order to be really efficient in this game you have to plant seeds, hang back in the shadows and let everybody else water them," he says.

11. Say It, Don't Spray It Award: It's finally time for the big Nutcracker performance at Fanny's dance studio, but since this is the summer finale of Bunheads, things can't go off without a hitch. Michelle tries her best to help the dancers get ready for the next act, but when she means to dose them with some extra hairspray, she accidentally sprays them all — and herself — with mace and finds herself in some major hot water with the dancers' parents. Was a little frizz really worth the trouble?
10. Empty Promises Award: When guests cancel a talk show appearance, most shows scramble to...
The Bachelor Pad victor has finally fallen.
Just when it seemed that house womanizer Chris would experience some payback, a twist was revealed: The players would vote out a woman who would then single-handedly choose a man to exit with her. Last year's winner Michael, aware he'd be on the chopping block, tried to get his friend Erica out. But when his plan was discovered, she turned right around and took him out with her.
