Bachelor Pad Review: So High School

by at . Comments

Upset over Gia's elimination, Wes Hayden accused pretty much everyone else of being fake. You knew he was going to get bounced as a result, but ... Team Wes!

Honestly, this guy is the only one who understands it's a game first and a relationship show second. Not even ABC appears to realize this about its confusing program.

Then again, Wes is back in Texas gettin' nibbles on his pole, and we're sitting here recapping it while the couples vie for $250,000, so who are we to talk strategy?

Jesse Beck in the Pad

Jesse Beck wins immunity in the meanest way possible.

Things got more entertaining, albeit in a very high school way, when the Pad unveiled the most ruthless challenge ever, surveying the contestants about the others.

"Who is the meanest" or the "worst liar" or has "the worst boob job" ... feelings will be hurt. Except Chris Harrison's, that is. The host-pimp does it all straight-faced.

Basically, if you accurately guessed who was most often cited in each category by the rest of the house, you earned a point. Naturally, this led to meltdowns later.

Tenley Molzahn won for the girls, and Jesse Beck for the guys after accurately calling out Elizabeth's possibly fake rack. This is Bachelor Pad, ladies and gentlemen.

The silver lining was Jesse Kovacs, who decided to give up potential points by not singling out Elizabeth and hurting her feelings, but risking his own neck in turn.

On Tenley's date with Kiptyn, things got romantic and were drawn out a really, really long time, confusing us again as to whether this show is about love or what.

He got a rose, naturally, as did Peyton, who Jesse Beck took on a date. It was all going well until he burped in Peyton's face and tried to pick her nose. Seriously.

Fantasy suite ... denied!

Coming down to the wire, it seemed that Krisily, Elizabeth, Kovacs, and Wes were in jeopardy. Let the campaigns begin. To keep couples or break' em up - it's war.

Like the Big Brother Brigade, Kiptyn, Dave, and Kovacs can vote together and win 3-2 over anyone. They'll do so to save Elizabeth, who Wes and Beck want out.

Who to kick off instead, though? Here we saw some rare tension and strategy in play. Kiptyn wants Krisily out and the other two prefer Gwen. Kiptyn sways them.

The painful part is that just a few minutes earlier, Dave cut a deal with Krisily, who was legitimately on the fence, to vote off Wes instead of Jesse Kovacs. Brutal!

She was not pleased. Krisily unabashedly threw Dave, Kiptyn, and Kovacs under the bus for lying, while Wes and Jesse Beck said aloud they didn't vote her off.

The girls, as we mentioned above, voted off Wes 3-2. It's too bad, because he gets a bad rap and is actually one of the smarter, more fun people in the room.

Thoughts on last night's Bachelor Pad?

Why do the "cool kids" keep Elizabeth around?? She seems to be literally blackmailing Kovacs into a relationship while being the most bitchy, manipulative person on the show!!

Dave has his eyes on the money! Alliances and deals are quickly forgotten when you have No backbone. Dave will soon be taking his own limo ride but it won’t be for rejection; it will be the ride of shame! Class, honesty, Loyalty, direct or in-direct is a virtue you either have or don’t. Who said speaking the truth is shameful! Krisily had the strength and courage to stand-up and speak to the snakes lying in the grass. She spoke her mind. Go Girl!! Dave wasn’t a man, he was a gutless coward. Krisily, you were a Princess among dogs. Let them fight for the scraps, the Loyalty and friendships you demonstrated did not go unnoticed. You were Dave’s only hope for survive! So Go Girl, walk with pride you out CLASSED them all!

this has been entertaining up until this past contest. ABC had taken this show to a whole new level of nausea. The last contest of insult and low-blows on the contestants had nothing to do with the show. How INHUMANE, CRUEL, and DISTURBING that ABC would allow this. I'm completely appalled. ABC, I DELETE YOU.

We (7 of us) call it girls night. Monday night watching different versions of The Bachelor. But last night was the last time we will be watching your show. We think last nights "game" was not a game. It was down right cruel and so uncalled for. Is this the best you can come up with? How hurtful, how low can you get. Why would you want to hurt someone like that. There was a lot of talk this morning at the breakfast shop and others feel the same. Most didn't even finish watching the whole thing.You need to stop being so negative and hurtful. We understand its supposed to be entertaining but that was just too cruel. You lost a good audience. Suni
