Bachelor Pad 3: Coming This Summer!

by at . Comments

ABC confirmed last night during The Bachelor finale that the network will order a third season of the reality show's summer spinoff, Bachelor Pad. Sweet.

The Pad, a Big Brother-like battle of the sexes in an L.A. mansion populated by former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants, will return in mid-summer.

And there will be twist: Some lucky random schmoe fan can apply to join the show and compete against the castoffs vying for a 16th minute of fame! Yesss!

Bachelor Pad 2 Cast

Season 1, won by Natalie Getz and Dave Good, was a bit of a mess as ABC struggled to wing the format on the fly, but it attracted a decent following.

Season 2, won by Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst, who got engaged to Blake Julian right after the season, averaged a strong 7.10 million viewers.

Other memorable castoffs on the Pad include Jake Pavelka (obvi), Gia Allemand, Kasey Kahl, Vienna Girardi, Michelle Money, Kiptyn Locke and Wes Hayden.

Nick Peterson on Bachelor Pad Controversy: I Would've Shared the Money, But ...

Monday's Bachelor Pad finale caused a lot of controversy, but winner Nick Peterson stands by his decision to keep the cash. Here's why.


The Batchelor Pad - for the third year in a row they will place a significant group of admittedly very good looking boys and girls in the same house. I said good looking not attractive, and I said boys and girls, not men and women. Do these shallow young boys and girls, devoid of true character and personality not have a life - clearly not. One could also ask - could ABC with all its resources not recruit and put together a different groupd as opposed to bringing back these t rbeing lslApersonall, psmne attracdmi pp gfingithey silly outcasts. This is a train wreck, a gong show - Chuck Barris would be proud.
