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.

Gia Allemand (Bachelor Pad) and Ryan Anderson (Orlando Magic) are dating! Talk about a slam dunk, or a better basketball/love metaphor!

The 27-year-old model said that "fate stepped in" when she was introduced to Ryan while doing a photo shoot in The Bahamas in February.

"We ended up hanging out every minute I was able to when I wasn't working," says Allemand, who was soon offered a job in The Bahamas.

That required her relocation to Florida - where Anderson's pro team happens to be - in order to "be flown to the Bahamas every weekend."

Allemand, who recently designed a line a bathing suits for The G Stop, says she and the 23-year-old Anderson have been going strong.

"Not only was it love at first sight but it seemed like a touch of destiny. We now both live in Orlando and couldn't be happier," Allemand says.

"I think I may have finally found the one!"

Eat it, Jake Pavelka and Wes Hayden.

You wouldn't imagine Bachelor Pad would make you tear up at the end (from genuine emotion, not laughter) but there's a first time for everything.

The season's second episode featured the usual fare - drama, boring dates, people taking things way too seriously - but also a truly romantic moment.

By the end, Jake Pavelka vs. Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl felt more like a sideshow. You can thank Ames Brown and Jackie Gordon for that.

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

Bachelor Pad Bikini Babes

The challenge this week: "Target on Your Back." Rules: Idiots line up, blindfolded, and have eggs winged at them based on questions. Plus 6.

Jake bears the brunt of the ladies' chicken embryos, but takes it in stride. When Erica gets hit with nearly EVERY egg, though? Harsh. Minus 9.

Why not just throw the eggs at the middle of the pack if the answer doesn't actually matter? Big Brother always has a trivia component. Minus 2.

Minus another 4 for the guys having to throw underhand. Come on, at least let Jake wind up for a fastball at Vienna the Cheater. Three times!

Based on the trailer that aired on last night's Men Tell All special, Season 2 of Bachelor Pad is shaping up to be one of the best/worst shows in reality TV history.

Seriously, it's guaranteed to elicit one or both of these responses:

  1. This show represents all that is wrong with society today!
  2. This is so bad, it's must-see TV!

Think Big Brother only with more hormones, bigger egos, pre-existing feuds and a hodgepodge of some of the most memorable Bachelor/Bachelorette castoffs:

Jake Pavelka is on it. Need we say more? Fame whoring at its finest for the cast, and guilty-pleasure, brain cell-eroding drama at its best for the viewers.

It all starts next week. For more on tonight's Bachelorette finale, be sure to check out The Bachelorette spoilers, and follow the jump for a preview:

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."

On a recent episode of Bachelor Pad, Gia Allemand compared Wes Hayden to William Shakespeare. She subsequently got voted off the ABC series, but time away from the country crooner has not changed Gia's feelings.

Describing Wes as “such a good, decent man,” Allemand tells People magazine that Hayden's fight to keep her in the house “made his stock rise so much in my book. I thought, ‘Wow, he’s even better than I thought!'"

We're as shocked as you are: Gia has coherent thoughts?!?

Hayden, of course, is the same man that lied about having a girlfriend when he was a suitor on Jillian's season of The Bachelorette.

But Allemand sees a different side to him. She says they've become Facebook friends and “I’m definitely interested in [seeing where things go]."

Gia Allemand's exile from ABC's Bachelor Pad was not a shock.

The way in which it all went down, though? That's another story.

Gia tearfully withdrew from the kissing contest because of her boyfriend back home, then cozied up by the pool and in bed with Wes Hayden later on.

"He's like the modern day Shakespeare," Gia Allemand said of Wes. "I have my honey at home ... I never expected to meet someone so amazing."

"I am a confused girl, that's what I am."

"I didn't come to to the house looking to fall in love," Wes later admitted to the cameras. "I'll do anything it takes for Gia to stay in the game."

Gia: The Bachelor

GES?? WIA?? Call them what you want, it's an odd couple!

Despite making the final three of, you know, The Bachelor, Gia seemed beyond moved - to tears, even - by Wes' rendition of "Love Don't Come Easy."

Contrived nonsense or truly unscripted nonsense? We may never know. Whatever his motives, Wes Hayden tried to get Elizabeth Kitt voted off instead.

He threatened Jesse Kovacs, who's kinda sorta dating Kitt, that if he didn't vote her off, he'd be out next because no one wants couples on the show.

It nearly worked. In the end, Gia and Elizabeth tied. David Good, who got to break the tie because he won the kissing competition, sent Gia home.

In tears, Gia whispered to Wes, "I can't look at you. Don't make me cry ... I love you." A crestfallen Wes told the cameramen, "My heart just sunk."

"Somebody went home that didn't deserve to."

Gia said had she stayed, "I would've told Wes how I felt. I don't think Wes knows how I feel. Money, it's not everything. I am an emotional wreck."

Probably a single one after her boyfriend saw this.

Who would you rather ... you know?

The traditional pre-season finale "Women Tell All" reunion special of The Bachelor is always mostly filler - and a total misnomer, as they really tell surprisingly little.

Still, there were fireworks as Rozlyn Papa returned to confront Chris Harrison and the stage was set for next week's epic Tenley Molzahn-Vienna Girardi showdown.

As always, THG endured two freaking hours of the colon-tastic The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love: The Women Tell All to recap all the action in our +/- system:

Jake said self-defecating when he meant self-deprecating. Plus 3.

Wes Hayden of last season's Bachelorette is back for some reason. He says he's getting "a thousand more nibbles" on his dating pole these days. Gross. Minus 4.

Crazy ass Michelle tried to explain her crazy ass behavior, but just came across as even more unstable. Her best defense: "Ask my friends. I have a job!" Plus 9.

Chris Harrison didn't let up on Rozlyn Papa, but she held her own.

Rozlyn Papa was confronted by fellow Bachelor hopefuls about her relationship with producer Ryan Callahan, which got them both fired from the show. According to Ella, Rozlyn got on all fours, in wearing booty shorts and said to the women, "If you see [Ryan], send him in ... I need to be put to bed!" Plus 40.

The venerable host and pimp of The Bachelor, Chris Harrison, then took his turn with Rozlyn, accusing her of making stories up like his young son does. Minus 16.

She wouldn't back down though. When he said he was saddened by having to let "his friend" go, Rozlyn countered that Chris is no friend, having hit on Ryan's wife in New Zealand. Chris refused to "dignity that with a response." Awkward! Plus 25.

Jake Pavelka Shirtless

Shirtless Jake Pavelka has a tough decision to make next week.

The girls all praise Ms. Perfect, Tenley Molzahn. Jessie: "She almost fell out of a Disney movie." Gia: "She sh*ts rainbows." Minus 34 for them feeding us this crap just so we're devastated when Tenley loses next week. Brace for the pain.

Despite hating on her all season, the girls go easy on Vienna. Even Ali Fedotowsky apologized. Weak. Minus 46. We want catty comments and chairs thrown.

The next Bachelorette is going to be Ali Fedotowsky. In her interview, she said: "I believe life is measured by the risks we take ... If I could go back and do it differently, I probably would. I'm an advocate of women having careers, but I don't want to look back and say I didn't love enough." Excellent writing, story editors! Plus 30.

TOTAL: -3. SEASON: +9.

Who should Jake Pavelka give his final rose to next week?

Despite rumors that she was dating someone else while competing for Jake Pavelka's heart, The Bachelor reject Gia Allemand says she was (and is) a single gal.

Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, the model subtly shot down a New York Post report that she has a boyfriend and pretended to be single.

When Ellen DeGeneres asked Gia Allemand if she's dating, the reality star says, "I'm actually going to have my first date next week. My first date in a while."

That conflicts with claims of alleged lover Dominick Pierno, a Long Island restauranteur who told the Post, "She was on the show and said she broke up with me."

"Meanwhile, we had dinner at Philippe the other night."

Gia: The Bachelor

Gia Allemand finished third on this season of The Bachelor.

The 26-year-old stunner said she was fully invested in The Bachelor, and "it took me a while" to get over Jake Pavelka, "with my heart broken and everything."

Throwing salt on the wound? Seeing this week's episode.

"I finally got over it but then I was watching the show Monday night," she says, "I was, like, hysterical in my hotel room. I was like oh my, that really hurt."

Gia also has some interesting comments about public enemy #1 Vienna Girardi, who she describes as a "really good person." Umm, what? That's a new one!

Is Vienna just being railroaded by exes and ABC editors? Or was Gia just not as riled up by her as Ali Fedotowsky and Tenley Molzahn? Interesting debate.

Who should Jake give his final rose to?

Jake Pavelka traveled to St. Lucia with his three remaining women on The Bachelor last night. Despite the best efforts of Gia Allemand and a last-ditch do-over request by Ali Fedotowsky, he narrowed the field to just two lucky ladies:

Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi.

How did he arrive at this painstaking decision? As always, THG endured Jake's trials and tribulations on The Bachelor to recap the action in our point system:

The "shocking return" of Ali Fedotowsky was the hyped event this week. She lies in bed with promotional pics of Jake that Mike Fleiss gave her when he wrote this. Or she printed online because she's a stalker. Either way, Plus 30.

Ali Fedotowsky Photo

Back in San Francisco, Ali pretends to lament her decision.

Jake often calls Gia "deep." What does that even mean? Minus 6.

Jake says he'd return to St. Lucia on a honeymoon as it has "a lot of meaning." Hard to top the place where you slept with three girls in one week, it's true. Plus 5.

Gia: "When I look into Jake's eyes, I get lost." Jealous. Minus 3.

A Fantasy Suite card is delivered, they hop in the tub in the suite and Jake says "Gia has grabbed on to my heart so hard." He could not be more awkward. Plus 4.

Minus 8 because we really should have added "take a sip every time Tenley says 'my ex'" to our Bachelor drinking game. We could've been so trashed last night!

Jake says he can't wait to watch his first sunrise with Tenley Molzahn. Plus 6 because with these two, that probably actually is what they were thinking about.

In the span of about like minutes Jake refers to Vienna Girardi as light, fun, immature, and "nurturing." LOL wut. This is your future wife, Jake?! Minus 17.

Mauling Jake

Vienna Girardi mauls Jake Pavelka. No wonder she's in the finale.

After inhaling Jake's face aboard a pirate ship, Vienna busts out her finest Wal-Mart lingerie and closes the suite door. Plus 3, because at least she goes for broke.

Re: the fantasy suite concept: Do girls put out when he's "dating" two others? We're guessing definitely Vienna and maybe Gia. No bone zone for Tenley. Even.

Twist alert! Ali calls Jake (cameras just happened to be rolling) and says she'll "forever" regret her decision. Until she stars on The Bachelorette, that is. Plus 7.

Jake's absurd reasoning for not taking her back: he's so much closer to the other three girls since Ali left. Dude, this happened like yesterday afternoon. Minus 14.

A half hour of filler ended the episode, but Plus 4 for the over-dramatic, music-free cut to commercial while Ali cried. That's when you know it's emotional!

TOTAL: +11. SEASON: +12. Roses: Tenley, Vienna. Gone: Gia, Ali (again).

Who should Jake Pavelka give his final rose to?
