Chris is an animated, good ol' country boy from Georgia. He thoroughly enjoys rush-kicking in doors, taking down criminals and flashing his tats. He is very similar to a 90's action movie hero in that he wants what every hero wants — the money and pretty girl on his arm. Chris hopes to leave Bachelor Pad with both.
David is a fan of the show, but an even bigger fan of women and money. As an MMA fighter, David feels right at home being competitive and has earned the name "Kamikaze" because when he fights he either wins or dies trying. Bachelor Pad is the perfect arena where he will be able to dominate in both fields. He would like to hook up with Lindzi.
ABC's description: As a dedicated fan of The Bachelor, Paige has preconceived notions of all previous cast members from writing The Bachelor recaps in her college newspaper and admits she will be a bit star-struck. She may look sweet and innocent, but do not underestimate her because Paige will use her knowledge of the cast to her advantage. Though she will put up a good fight for the money, she ultimately hopes to find the love of her life and settle down.
Brittany and Erica Taltos
These twoare the definition of double the trouble and double the fun. They are in it for the money and maybe to find a guy, but nothing serious. Erica has the reputation for being the smarter, more conservative twin. She is still a virgin and has not dated much. Brittany, however, could not be more opposite of Erica, she is the flirtatious, boy-crazy twin. As fans, the twins think Erica is snobby, boring and not pretty.
ABC's description: This sight for sore eyes is a trifecta of beauty, personality and brains. Donna graduated third in her class, and loves drawing and writing songs. She knows people underestimate her intelligence because of her beauty — little do they know she has no problem playing it up and using her beauty and brains to win the money. Donna would love to go on a date with Michael Stagliano.
