Bachelor Pad Recap: Blake Julian and Holly Durst Get Tongue Tied; Melissa Schrieber Goes Insane

by at . Comments

After three weeks centered around Jake Pavelka and the douchiest couple ever, Bachelor Pad pivoted to other cast members and themes Monday night.

Namely Blake Julian, Holly Durst and a whole lot of making out.

By the end, two more castoffs from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were castoffs again, while a love connection was formed (along with a bitter rivalry).

Read about it below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad recap:

Bachelor Pad Mauling

Jake was indeed voted off on last week's episode. Belated Minus 12. Then Minus 3 more for Jake exiting by saying it's time to start voting off the power couples. Ooh. Way to "take as many people as you can down with you" Jake.

"The devil's gone." - Kasey. Maybe so, but the evil, nasty frog remains. Minus 4.

Plus 9 for an episode largely lacking Kasey Kahl and Vienna Girardi, however.

Blake Julian was determined to win the rose in the kissing contest, becoming the star of the episode for better or worse. Plus 7 for the entertainment value of his shamelessness, but Minus 10 for being a man-whore of sorts.

Naturally, Melissa Schreiber read too much into their kiss. Plus 5.

Naturally, Erica reminded us about her injections, then slobbered on people. Not sure that's fun for most guys even if they like the person. Minus 4.

Naturally, Kasey Kahl has bad breath and repulses women (Vienna, as a small child developmentally, does not fall in that category). Minus 8 all around.

Michelle Money declines to participate because of her daughter. Ella Nolan is all for it - and wins, along with Blake - saying her son would be proud. Different convictions, but like both of those ladies this season, so Plus 9.

Holly Durst, Michael Stagliano

Blake CRUSHES Melissa by giving the date rose to Holly Durst. Plus 13 because the choice clearly boiled down to "Holly is hot, Melissa is not ... plus Melissa is CA-RAY-ZY", but he refused to spell it out in such terms.

Plus 4 more for making her stand there while he brushed his teeth.

Melissa promised Blake, "This. Will. Trash. You." Then she told Michael "[Holly] doesn't give a s--t about you." Unhinged much? Minus 17.

Blake's situation is quite simple. He hooked up with Melissa and now regrets it after getting to know Holly, a girl he likes more and is now full-on pursuing. Holly's situation is much more complicated. She has feelings for Michael, but how deep? Plus 7 for the emotional complexity and turmoil of Bachelor Pad.

Minus 6 for Mike being just a little bit pathetic. He dumped her, too.

At least they're very real. When he went to profess his love for her again, and learned she kissed Blake, it was so awkward. No one knew how to act. Plus 9.

B. Pad Twitter

See Twitter exchange above. Plus 15 for Chris Harrison promoting the show in this fashion. Minus 10 for Melissa publicly begging Chris Harrison to follow her. Plus 5 for the fact that Chris wasn't following her in the first place.

Plus 6 more for the host-pimp's expressions overseeing the kissing contest.

Ella went out on a very sweet, uneventful and non-controversial date with Kirk DeWindt. Plus 9 because we can sort of see those two together.

Minus 7 for the obligatory 2-3 minutes in every episode where Bachelor Pad leads us to believe that Kasey may be going home, then he stays.

Not surprisingly, the Crazy Town Express is derailed at the rose ceremony. As for the guys, William Holman got the boot. In other news, William was on Bachelor Pad this season. Who knew! In Big Brother parlance, he was a floater. Minus 4.

Michelle, tearfully, on William: "He is the salt of the earth, the greatest guy. He does not deserve to be going home." Awww. Wait, huh?! Eh, Plus 6.

EPISODE TOTAL: +17. SEASON TOTAL: +45.

GONE: William Holman, Melissa Schrieber.

Jake came out of this a much bigger person than Vienna and scum bag, moron, Kasey! What a couple, they really belong together. Jake was classy, polite, and nice to everyone. Kasey, just wait and see what Vienna the slut has in store for you.

This is certainly a topsy-turvey season. You know, act or not, I kinda like Jake a little more. Kasey (whom I didn't expect to be such a scum-bag) has plainly shown his true colors. Tatoo be damn!
If he thinks it's gonna be bliss lane with Vienna, he's wrong. She switches from time to time whatever is going now. She looks better
but has a real vicious deep mean streak toward people who disagree with her. Holly is cute and I think she's trying to be as honest as she can be. Micheal can't stand competition or else he'd still be playing his game. His former financee should give herself a chance with someone new--she already knows the tricks of the past.
Animals don't chance their habits and/or spots.

A very entertaining article! I really liked this episode as we all got to know Holly better. Now I see why Michael and Blake like her.

The best looking woman on that show is Ella, and the hottest man is Graham. They'd make a cute couple.

I watched one episode and about one-eighth of another but couldn't stomach any more. The only reason I tuned in in the first place was to see Ames. 0;-p

This has to be one of the most offensive and repulsive programs on TV. Kasey and Vienna still on this show? They are two of the biggest slime balls ever. I refuse to watch!
