Bachelor Pad Finale: Rachel Gets Screwed and Blakeley’s a Step-Mommy?

When Chris Harrison said this was the “most disturbing season finale of ‘Bachelor Pad’ ever,” he wasn’t kidding.  Which part of the show was he referring to when he said “most disturbing?”

Was it:
(a) the cheesy proposal,

(b) Jamie’s “Cleopatra” getup, complete with sparkly headgear, or

(c) Rachel getting screwed over?

I’m going with all of the above.

Bachelor Pad 3, Week 4: Things Are Getting Weird (and Awkward)

After the rose ceremony, the house was reeling over the ouster of Donna Reid (get it? Super-Fan Donna and Still-Obsessed-with-Jillian Reid? Bah-dum-dum!)

But the drama wasn’t over yet!  Chris Harrison presented the group with questionnaires to complete for the next challenge, “Gameshow Mashup.”  The challenge was neither a game show, nor a mash-up.  The first round asked generic questions about love and romance, while round two asked players to identify “who said that” in the house.  The guy and girl with the highest score won immunity, while the losers would get a vote against them.  Michael, who has emerged as the sole voice of reason on this show, predicted that the competition would go south pretty fast, and lots of feelings would be hurt.

I was supposed to clean my bathroom tonight, but the train wreck that is the Bachelor Pad kept me on my couch.  Yes, ‘twas the siren’s song that lured me away from my toilet brush and into the ridiculousness of yet another show produced by Heidi Fleiss’ brother.

For the uninitiated, the Bachelor Pad brings rejects from all seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette shows to live under one roof for the summer, team up and compete in challenges, attempt to fall in love and/or win $250,000.  They get ahead by essentially lying and stabbing each other in the back.  The couple that wins the competition gets a rose and is safe from elimination.  They also get to go on a date.  Each week, the guys vote off the girls and vice versa.
