Bachelor Pad, Michael Stagliano
Bachelor Pad winner Michael Stagliano wishes the best for his ex-fianceé Holly Durst and hopes her new fiancé Blake Julian proves him wrong.
"I don't think Blake is the nicest guy in the world. My hope is that I'm wrong and that Holly doesn't back out of another engagement," Michael tells TVGuide.com.

Monday Night Football had a big night in the ratings, just like Tom Brady on the field.
The regular season debut of the venerable franchise on ESPN decimated the competition on both cable and broadcast television, attracting 14.57 million viewers for the NFL game between the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins and a 6.3 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds. Brady made the hot South Florida night hotter, passing for 517 yards — merely the fifth-best in league history. And with the promise of more excitement like that, ESPN is sure to lure solid numbers throughout the season.

It was tough enough being in the Bachelor Pad house with your ex-fiance, but on the taped finale Michael Stagliano learned that Holly Durst and fellow contestant Blake Julian were recently engaged. While host Chris Harrison says that they did their best to be delicate with how Michael — and America — would find out, he's surprised with how Holly handled the situation. Read on for more about what went down, what viewers didn't see and why Harrison "isn't buying what Vienna is selling."

He should have kept the money. After all, he lost the girl.
Last night, the finale of Bachelor Pad pit exes-turned-teammates Michael and Holly against one another in one last challenge that asked them to individually decide to either share the 250K prize or claim it all for themselves. Normally (or as normal as this hormonal parade can get), we'd expect them to strategize beforehand and agree to go 50/50.

It's not quite time to say goodbye for good to TNT's signature hit The Closer, which will return in November with new episodes, then finish out its run with a batch of episodes next summer. Tonight's "summer finale" (9/8c) is a potentially pivotal one, as Brenda awaits a judge's decision about whether to drop the charges in the civil suit that has been hanging over her and the department all season. The shooting death of a deputy sheriff provides some distraction. ... The popular, but by comparison ...

13. Kiss and Tell Award: Talk about airing your dirty laundry on television. When Vienna and Kasey get into a little lovers' quarrel on Bachelor Pad (he wants to have sex; she doesn't), he decides to prove that Vienna isn't shy about getting into bed by name-dropping her previous conquests. Including Wes and Dave Good. To her face. Both guys denied it, of course, but who...
While Erica Rose got eliminated on this week's Bachelor Pad, she didn't go down without a fight — or without trying to get some. Host Chris Harrison weighs in on the "savvy, but underestimated black widow," why he thinks Holly is getting vilified for her love triangle, and how he's shocked by Kasey's name-dropping fight with Vienna. Plus: Get ready for next week's three-hour finale!

Seriously, ABC, whatever we did, we're sorry!
When it was announced that Bachelor Pad would return this summer, there were those of us who were so excited. With almost a year passed since its slapdash first season, there surely had to be time for the producers to work out the kinks, line up a juicy cast of hotties, and pump this edition with some serious guilty pleasures.

12. Worst Kiss: Bachelor Pad wouldn't be complete (and by "complete" we mean "characteristically disgusting and bad for humanity") without a kissing contest. Holly and Blake release some sexual tension when they make out (for a while actually) during the blindfolded competition. But as if making out in front of your housemates isn't bad enough, Holly's ex-fiancé Michael has to watch the whole thing. Awk-ward!
11. Worst Scare: Talk about heated competition!
Bachelor Pad, Graham and Michelle
On this week's Bachelor Pad, Melissa's emotions finally lead to her dismissal, Blake and Holly continued to develop a romance, Erica tried to massage her way to a new partner and of course, there was a kissing contestant. Host Chris Harrison tells us how the contestants tried to get out of the competition (again) and why he calls Graham and Michelle the mob bosses in the house.
