Chris Bukowski: Cast on Bachelor Pad!

by at . Comments

Chris Bukowski was sent packing by Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette last night, leaving Arie Luyendyk, Jr., Jef Holm and Sean Lowe to vie for her heart.

The Bachelorette spoilers we posted earlier today reveal who (allegedly) wins if you're curious. In any case, Chris will be moving on ... to Bachelor Pad!

Bukowski, a 25-year-old Chicagoan, decided to join Bachelor Pad 3 and the quest for $250,000/15 more minutes of fame after Emily rejected him.

Of that decision, Emily Maynard recently wrote in a blog for People:

"I had a hard time sending him home, but wanted to stay true to the promise I made to his sister that I wouldn't keep him away from his family if I didn't see him at the end."

Chris will be joining 19 other Bachelor and Bachelorette veterans – as well as five "super fans" of the franchise – on the Monday, July 23 premiere.

A month after revealing the majority of the Bachelor Pad 3 cast, ABC finally announced the name of the summer show's final contestant in Bukowski.

Kalon McMahon and Tony Pieper from this season are also in.

The Bachelorette season finale and first-ever live After the Final Rose show air on a special night: Sunday, July 22, starting at 8 p.m.
