Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, rejects from The Bachelor and Bachelorette who teamed up on Bachelor Pad and in life, have ended their relationship.

"Yes vienna and I have split. It's been 5 weeks now. I can't fake it anymore. I will always love, be there for her, and wish her the best," Kahl Tweeted.

"@KaseyRKahl will always be my best friend, but we have split. No idea what the future holds for us but we will always remain friends," Girardi said.

Girardi briefly became engaged to Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor but things quickly went south and culminated in an ugly, televised break-up interview.

Kahl wooed Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette with song, and had his lame ass catch phrase, "guard and protect your heart," tattooed on his wrist.

Ali was unimpressed, but he won over Vienna Girardi, who he teamed with on Bachelor Pad. There, Kasey set out to "mentally beat the $h!t out of Jake."

That didn't really work out either. While they quickly became the power couple to beat, Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano prevailed in the show's finale.

We wish Kasey and Vienna the best in their future endeavors. Endeavors which, hopefully, never require us to post about the douche-tastic pair again.

Last night on Bachelor Pad, after the dust settled from ABC blindsiding Michael Stagliano and handing him a $125,000 parting gift, Ben Flajnik was formally introduced as the handsome, leading man of the upcoming season of The Bachelor.

The California winemaker proposed to Ashley Hebert on the The Bachelorette finale, only to be rebuffed. Next time around, he'll be doling out the roses.

The new season kicks off January 2. Here's Ben's introduction:

Ben Flajnik seems perfect for the role in the sense that he takes the dating show seriously enough - even crediting his recent stint on The Bachelorette with helping him grow as an individual - while remaining pragmatic about it.

What do you think? A good choice for The Bachelor?

Talk about mixed emotions.

Minutes before triumphing on the Bachelor Pad season finale, Michael Stagliano learned ON TV that his ex-fiancee, Holly Durst, was now engaged to someone else.

In the audience.

Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst

Mike and Holly with their friend and former pimp. His name's Chris.

Yup, despite partnering with Michael on the show, Holly was involved with Blake Julian, who she dated (and apparently got engaged to) after filming ended.

That was news to Michael, who found out on the taping of the season finale. Fortunately, he and Holly won the votes of their peers and $125,000 a piece.

Not the worst silver lining in the world. Nevertheless ...

On the season finale of Bachelor Pad, old wounds were reopened, a romantic bombshell was dropped, and a STAGGERING prize of $250,000 was awarded.

There were tears shed. There were some extremely awkward moments.

By the end, two couples from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were left standing. Read about it all below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad finale recap:

Jake, Vienna and Kasey

"I'm trying to act strong, 'cause I don't want Michelle to worry, but I am literally pissing down my leg." - Graham on the set of Cirque du Soleil. Literally. Plus 5.

Kasey and Vienna, of course, guaranteed they'd win this task and earn a spot in the finals. And, of course, they failed to do so. And, of course, she wept. Minus 6.

Mike and Holly took home the #1 spot thanks in no small part to his performing arts / dance background, but hey, guy needed a bone thrown his way, so Plus 8.

The judges - Jason Mesnick, Ali Fedotowsky and Trista Sutter - eliminated Ella and Kirk. Boo, but seeing those three was kind of fun, so that's kind of a Wash.

Four couples remain on Bachelor Pad heading into tonight's finale.

Who will take home the $250,000 prize? That will hinge on who makes the final two and wins the votes of their peers (they stole this from Big Brother).

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl are by far the douchiest couple in the house, and possibly in all of civilization. But they've been in command throughout.

The budding romance between Michelle Money and Graham Bunn, not to mention their strategy and success in competitions, could propel those two.

Bachelor Pad 2 Cast

Previously engaged Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano seem like the long shots, given the instability of their relationship (i.e. she just got engaged to Blake Julian).

Ella Nolan and Kirk DeWindt are the only tandem without romantic undertones, but she's a single mom and he's a mold poisoning survivor, and both are kinda cute.

So ... yeah. That about sums up the field right here.

Somebody had better go check on Mike Stagliano right about now.

Holly Durst and Blake Julian, whose chemistry on Bachelor Pad was palpable but led to his elimination on this week's episode, have since gotten engaged!

He clearly had a thing for her, but wow. Anyone see that coming?

  • Holly Durst on Bachelor Pad
  • Blake Julian Picture

Monday on Bachelor Pad, Holly handed Blake a note at the rose ceremony – right as he was about to get the boot - saying that it wasn't the end for them.

That turned out to be rather telling.

The pair, both 28, flirted all season long, but their courtship was always complicated, given that Durst's former fiancé Stagliano was also on the program.

And wanted her back desperately.

Meanwhile, Blake (a castoff from Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette) also got with psycho Melissa Schreiber and was wooed by nut job Erica Rose.

Freed from the confines of that wild and crazy mansion, however, Holly and Blake's love was allowed to shine. Congratulations to the engaged couple!

Nose job. Breast implants. Liposuction on her tummy, hips and thighs.

Ella Nolan, the all-American mom from The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad, had it all after the show concluded, and couldn't be happier with her new body.

"TV magnifies all your flaws, and seeing my profile really bothered me," Nolan tells Life & Style. Take a look at these before and after pics of Ella Nolan:

Ella Nolan Before and After

"I've always wanted my breasts done. Before I got pregnant with my son, Ethan, about 10 years ago, my boobs were fabulous," Ella laments.

"They haven't been the same since."

Personally, we're a little disappointed, given that Ella stood out on the Pad as one of the few who seemed secure with her natural appearance.

Don't get us wrong, we're still rooting for her to beat Vienna Girardi on the season finale. She just didn't need to replicate Vienna's nose job.

Ben Flajnik will star as The Bachelor this January.

He will also appear on the season finale of Bachelor Pad next week in some capacity. The winner of ABC's summer guilty pleasure will be revealed then.

As we told you last month, the 28-year-old winemaker who was turned down by Ashley Hebert on The Bachelorette will dole out the roses come winter.

Ben and Ashley

Before starting his own Sonoma winery, Ben Flajnik attended the University of Arizona, where he majored in music production and minored in business.

After his father – to whom he was very close – died in 2007, he moved back to Northern California, where plans to stay for the foreseeable future.

Flajnik is a fan of outdoor hobbies, including fishing, skateboarding, golf, sailing and surfing. He currently lives with his Jack Russell terrier, Scotch.

ABC will presumably announce Ben as The Bachelor next Monday night on Bachelor Pad. Four couples remain on that show after last night's episode.

Ben Flajnik as The Bachelor: Good choice?

In a STUNNING twist that makes absolutely no difference except to Erica and Blake, Bachelor Pad made its pairings officially "couple" up on Monday night.

As a result, Blake found himself further ostracized from the house.

By the end, the two castoffs from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were fighting not to be castoffs again, while a new love connection began to blossom.

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

Graham Bunn and Michelle Money

Blake, awkwardly, must pair with Erica because he has no choice. She feels he should express a little bit more excitement. "I'm a lot smarter than Holly is," Erica says. "And in my opinion I am a lot prettier." No and no. Minus 8.

Venerable BP host-pimp Chris Harrison told the partners to "get to know" each other before the competition. Advantage ... who the heck knows! Plus 3.

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, as always, are overconfident. And moronic. Minus 12.

Michelle Money has done the impossible.

The former Bachelor cast member has not only improved her image significantly on this summer's Bachelor Pad, she made a true personal connection on the show!

Months after filming wrapped, Michelle Money and Graham Bunn, a Bachelorette cast member from DeAnna Pappas' season, say they are closer than ever.

Michelle Money and Graham Bunn

"Graham and I talk multiple times a day," Money said. "We both knew he was going back to New York and I'm going back to Utah, and we live different lives."

"We don't live close to each other by any stretch of the imagination, so we knew it was like, 'We'll see what happens.' But since then, we have grown closer."

Money says her relationship status with her Bachelor Pad costar is "not definable," but she attracted to Graham Bunn "Right when he walked in the door."

"I was like, 'Okay, this is going to be really fun,'" she says. "He's got these eyes that just kill you right when you see him. It's like, 'Okay, I'm done!'"
