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.

What the heck happened at the end of this week's Bachelor Pad episode?

The last rose came down to Jake Pavelka - who ominously vowed that if he was going home, he was going to take as many people as he could out with him - and Kasey Kahl.

The music built to a crescendo and then ... the credits rolled.

Chris Harrison said "Kasey," but that was it. Presumably he's getting a rose? It's all unclear. The host-pimp says next week, "it will all make sense." Either way, it was odd:

Is there a chance Jake Pavelka actually sticks around? Or did the show decide to edit it this way simply to spread Jake's epic meltdown upon being voted off?

We'll find out next Monday night, obviously. But until then ...

Whose side are you on in this Bachelor Pad battle?

Last night on Bachelor Pad, Melissa went insane, Jake's feud with Kasey escalated, Bret Michaels showed up, and there was synchronized swimming involved.

Just another eventful night on ABC's guilty pleasure spinoff hit.

By the end, it was Jake Pavelka and Kasey Kahl on the block again, with a weird ending that would have people talking if the format actually mattered.

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

Not In Sync

Blake, on Melissa: "She's like a live wire that's flailing around on the ground ready to zap somebody, and I'm covered in water." Plus 4 for that metaphor.

Speaking of water, the challenge is synchronized swimming! If you thought the girls would have a big edge here, boy did you think wrong. Minus 5.

Obligatory Minus 2 for Erica's attempt at "swimming."

Despite not playing to his self-proclaimed strengths - mental durability, physical strength and problem solving - Jake is the star ballerina! Plus 9.

Michael wins the rose, however, resulting in another boring, sappy date with Holly. Minus only 1, though, because at least this wasn't scripted.

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!

Viewers have known about it for a month, but Vienna Girardi says she was blindsided when Jake Pavelka showed up on the Bachelor Pad premiere.

"The producers will never tell you who's on the show, but they did say that no 'Bachelor' or 'Bachelorette' [star] would be invited," she said.

In other words, because Jake actually starred as The Bachelor, she could count on him walking through those mansion doors. So she thought.

  • Kahl of the Wild
  • Jake the Snake

That moment Jake arrived is still on her mind, Vienna Girardi says:

"I was absolutely terrified. The funny thing is [Jake] called me three days before filming started. I hadn't seen him in close to a year. I didn't answer the call, but I had a strange feeling it was to tell me he was on the show."

Instead of bolting, Vienna leaned heavily on her new boyfriend, Kasey Kahl, whom she's still dating - and reportedly moving in with.

Needless to say, the casting moves paid off for ABC.

The best thing about Bachelor Pad is that ABC, with its dramatic music, editing nuances and constant winks at the audience, doesn't take it too seriously.

Some cast members, however, take themselves very seriously.

The second season kicked off with 16 castoffs and two "winners" from past seasons. To the surprise of no one, those winners dominated the premiere.

Let's break down the summer's first enthralling episode of Jake Pavelka vs. Vienna Girardi, Part III, a.k.a. Bachelor Pad 2, in THG's official +/- recap:

Bachelor Pad 2 Cast

The cast reminds us early and often that they're there for the $250,000. Minus 5, because that's not even that that much. It's the attention that's priceless.

Vienna Girardi's nose job steps out of the limo. Chris: "Are you hoping [Jake's] not here?" Vienna: "Praying." Chris: "Well, I'm glad you're back." Plus 9.

Why is "Rated R" now called "The Wrestler"? Either way, Plus 4 for being the only guy to embrace his past sleaziness and present motives honestly.

Michelle Money revealed that her dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer, making her seem a lot more human and (slightly) less insane. Plus 6.

Who is this princess girl again? Why is she posing like that? Minus 3.

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:

When ABC's Bachelor Pad returns August 8, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi will meet again in the mansion as they battle for ... everything.

With $250,000 on the line - and Girardi's current beau, Bachelorette reject Kasey Kahl, in the mix - the stakes are high and the insults bitter.

"I hope she falls 3,000 feet to her death," Jake says in the promo below.

It's no surprise that the exes' icy interactions highlight the summer spin-off series, which airs a week after The Bachelorette season finale.

"She's trying to hurt me so she can get the money," a fired up Jake says in reference to the show's grand prize. "It will not happen!"

Vienna Girardi is equally as vengeful. "I hate him!" she snipes.

Jake Pavelka is making it a trifecta.

The Bachelorette castoff turned Bachelor star is coming to season two of Bachelor Pad this summer! Counting his stint on Dancing With the Stars, this will be the fourth ABC reality show for Jake in two years. Pretty amazing.

Pavelka, who is also starring on Famous Food with Heidi Montag and Ashley Dupre (seriously, that's a real show) will be competing for 15 more minutes of fame - and $250,000 - with other Bachelor rejects August 8.

Jake P.

EW broke the story with its report that Jake took Jackie Gordon (from last season of The Bachelor) out on the town for a date at LA’s El Capitan theater.

While Jackie didn’t make the final cut with Brad Womack, maybe she and Jake will fare better. Eh, Brad and Jake are both uptight stiffs, so probably not.

ABC has not announced the full cast of Bachelor Pad, but if rumors are true, Jake's ex-fiancee Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, her new man, are both on it!

That is going to be seriously awkward. And ratings gold.

As if the utter transparency of Jake Pavelka's fake relationship with Vienna Girardi weren't obvious enough, the two will clash - gasp - on The Bachelorette!

The two will square off on the July 5 episode, but The Bachelor star isn't holding back in the meantime, slamming his lame ex-fiancee for her poor conduct.

Flash Mob Style

"There was a serious lack of respect in the relationship," he tells Extra regarding rumors of Vienna's infidelity." I would like to think that she didn't cheat."

The pilot said he was "shocked" when Girardi sold her story. "What did I ever do to you that you would go and sell your story to a magazine," he asked.

"Is being famous that important to you?"

LOL. Said the man who's starred on three, going on four reality shows. Sure, Vienna is a total fame whore ... but she's not the one who won't put out.

Jake Pavelka milks the end of his fake relationship for all it's worth.

Jake adds angrily: "If you don't want to be with me, that's OK. But there's a very amicable way to split relationships up and she did it the wrong way!"

Pavelka hilariously insists that Girardi resented his rising celebrity, including stints on Dancing with the Stars and the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva.

"Fame changes people," he told Extra's Mario Lopez. "She feels Dancing with the Stars should have been hers, but in my view, I felt like it was ours."

"She started to get insanely jealous over these wonderful things happening in life. I saw her frustrations, so I tried to include her in everything I did."

Naturally, despite the hearbreak, Jake Pavelka will reunite with Vienna Girardi on The Bachelorette to generate more publicity set the record straight.

"Hopefully, it's gonna be some closure," he says. "America was there and stood with us at the birth of our relationship. I think I owe it to them and to myself and Vienna to let everybody be there at the end of it. So everybody understands it was real."

Frankly, Jake, if you owe us anything, it's to give it a f*%king rest. The birth of your relationship? You got engaged on THE BACHELOR and were cast on a different reality show THE SAME NIGHT as the season finale. The agenda is quite clear.

Pavelka will also show up on this summer's Bachelor Pad as a judge. Hey, you can only sit at home and cry about a contrived breakup for so long.

Whose side are you on in the Breakup of the Century?
