She may not win the final rose (THG's Bachelor spoilers have a thing or two to say about that), but Michelle Money is definitely the contestant of the year.

Watching the 30-year-old - not 29, not 31 - become more and more unhinged this season has been a treat for The Bachelor viewers ... or just frightening.

Michelle surpassed her own crazy standards on last night's episode, sneaking into Brad Womack's villa, demanding answers and trashing the other girls:

Womack, who's a bit stiff on his best days, was floored when Michelle Money called him out for keeping Chantal O'Brien, one of her top competitors.

She also attempted to swallow his face, complained about not getting enough QT with him and listed the order in which he should eliminate the others.

"You're scaring me," Womack said. He's definitely not alone after this.

We'd consider letting her go via satellite when the time comes, B.

Vienna Girardi was recently involved in some beef with Gia Allemand over Bachelor castoff Wes Hayden, who dated the latter before being linked to the former.

Now Vienna, who won last season of The Bachelor only to split up with Jake Pavelka about 45 minutes later, is supposedly dating another Bachelorette reject.

That reject is Kasey Kahl. The "guard and protect your heart" dude.

Kasey

It's a tough call to determine who's more annoying here!

According to Star (we know, we know), they were all over each other at Sharkeez Bar in Manhattan Beach, Calif., on Sunday. Vienna? Never one to take it slow.

"They were there for the Super Bowl but their eyes were hardly on the TV. They kept stealing kisses and were holding hands," says the onlooker at the bar.

"It seemed like it was much more than a one-night fling."

It seemed like more than that? Okay, we're convinced. In similar news that's actually been confirmed, Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright are officially a couple!

This week's episode of The Bachelor featured a trip to Costa Rica, Michelle upping the crazy to levels we didn't know existed and two more women eliminated.

One of whom we pretty much forgot was still on the show, a sign that it's been a pretty smooth ride for Brad so far. The tough decisions will really begin next week.

How did last night's dates play out? Who went home and who are the final six remaining? Let's break it all down right here in THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

Michelle, after Chantal Ohhhh received the first one-on-one date: "All I can do is be myself, be patient, and hope that she gets attacked by monkeys." Plus 8.

Obligatory Bachelor zip line / "take the plunge together" moment! Minus 5.

Chantal O’Brien in a men's white button-down shot? Not so unhot. Plus 12.

The good news about this date, which obviously ended with her getting a rose, was that Brad actually appeared human. The bad news? This is rare. Minus 4.

She may not have won Bachelor Brad Womack's heart, but if she can't be there for the final rose, Ashley Spivey knows a thing or two about who should.

"I still feel the same way I did when I left and I think Ashley Hebert and Emily Maynard have the strongest connection with Brad," Spivey told reporters.

"[When] he says [what] he wants in a wife, they meet the qualifications."

Spivey admits she was closest to Ashley Hebert during filming, but like the rest of America, the 26-year-old contestant sympathized with Emily Maynard.

Envious of Maynard's alone time with the bachelor initially, Spivey now believes Brad wasn't playing favorites, as some of the other contestants implied.

"Brad doesn't want people to be sad or have hurt feelings. He doesn't want to offend anyone. I think that's why he pulled Emily away a lot," Spivey says.

Gia Allemand and Vienna Girardi both vied for Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor, but it's another gentleman from the franchise who has them both in a Twitter tizzy.

Wes Hayden, Jake's competition for Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette, and who later wooed Gia on Bachelor Pad, was rumored to be dating Vienna last week.

While Hayden denied the rumor, it didn't sit well with Gia.

Gia: The Bachelor

Gia (left) finished third on the season won by Vienna Girardi.

"I guess I can hope to be The Bachelorette now that Wes is dating Vienna!" Gia Tweeted Tuesday, half-seriously lobbying for the lead role this summer.

"It's sad that people make up lies (Gia) that I'm dating someone to get sympathy and attempt to become The Bachelorette," Vienna Girardi replied.

Gia's reply: "[You are] a bad friend [and] everyone saw you guys at the reunion and in Texas. And [you] approached me. Hope they got it on camera."

"The world already knows [your] true colors."

Perhaps the most interesting part of The Bachelor Monday, as we noted in our official recap, was the final three minutes ... a preview for future episodes.

Basically, for reasons unknown, some of The Bachelor spoilers we've been reporting for weeks now were confirmed in this teaser for the rest of the season.

Does heartbreak await Brad Womack in Anguilla, on his hometown dates, and finally in South Africa? Skip ahead to the 6:30 mark and watch it unfold ...

The most telling clip? Chantal O'Brien telling Brad she didn't feel special as "one of three," and that he might as well send her home right then and there.

Monday's episode of The Bachelor featured a dreaded 2-on-1 date, some emotional outbursts, a faux dominatrix and the most lopsided date of all time.

The fifth week of the season felt a bit like filler, or at least like its sole goal was to build tensions and feelings for the final few weeks when it really gets good.

That said, there were memorable moments, good and bad. How did it all play out? Who stayed and who left? Let's break it down in THG's classic +/- recap!

Brad Womack and Emily

Amazing that a NASCAR-themed date was selected.

Shawntel gets the rose on the first solo date, and it's well-earned. The embalmer doesn't get the PR, but she seems very nice and down-to-earth. Plus 9.

Emily Maynard goes on a group date in which they go to a NASCAR track to take laps. Emily's late fiance was a race car driver. Minus 14, Mike Fleiss. Cold.

She handles being jerked around with such grace, though. Plus 10, and Plus 5 more, because Brad seems to empathize and care for her very genuinely.

The Bachelorette runner-up Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright, a former contestant on The Bachelor herself, have found love on the reality shows after all.

Chris' followers on Twitter likely put together that he and Peyton, who vied for the love of Andy Baldwin a few seasons ago, were an item. Now it's official.

Tugging Away

"Yes, I have," he told People at a Bachelor reunion party in New York, when asked if he found love. "We met at another Bachelor function," Wright adds.

Together since August, the couple hit it off right away.

"It's one of those things where I've had a ton of serious relationships and I met this kid and he was genuine, outgoing and hilarious. We just click," she said.

At the cast reunion event, which reports say doubled as a Bachelor Pad 2 casting session, Chris Lambton had no regrets about turning down The Bachelor.

"It's just not me," he said. "Sitting at home and watching the season with my family weirded me out. I wanted to find love on my own, not in that situation."

Good answer, especially now that's found Peyton. She's a pretty great catch, we admit ... although Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard are too. Just saying.

Despite fans' lukewarm reaction and critics' mediocre reviews (at best), ABC is totally running back Bachelor Pad a second time this summer. 

Casting will begin at a party this very weekend.

“If you’re on the invite, then you’re in the running to become a contestant on Bachelor Pad,” a source said of the sexy reality star gathering.

Please, let these two idiots be among the new cast members ...

Next Entertainment, the production company that owns The Bachelor, Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad, is assembling as many as 65 BP hopefuls.

The invite bringing the castoffs from past seasons together promises an open bar, suggests cocktail attire, and is an on-camera event itself.

Everyone has to sign a waiver of release so they can be on camera and they plan to air footage on The Bachelor's "The Women Tell All."

Brad Womack and Bachelor fans have fallen for Emily Maynard, whose former fiancee, race car driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a plane crash while she was pregnant.

On next week's episode, Emily's moving story will be on display again as their date - surely by pure coincidence - hits close to home at a NASCAR track.

Check out how Emily Maynard reacted to the setting of the group date, and how Brad Womack treated the potentially uncomfortable situation, below:

"I know there has been a lot of talk and concern recently over the upcoming episode of The Bachelor with the NASCAR-themed group date," Emily tells People.

"Although I appreciate everyone's concern, I ask that you reserve judgment until [it airs]. As you'll see, the experience actually helped me gain some closure."

She even had a little fun behind the wheel.

"The first few laps were for Ricky," the Southern Belle said. "And the last lap was for me. And I'm just really ready to move on and find love again."

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
