Vienna Girardi is in this for the money.

The former winner of The Bachelor and fiancee of Jake Pavelka has ZERO qualms about admitting that her second stint on reality TV is financially motivated.

“I said no at first,” she told The Huffington Post about coming on Bachelor Pad, adding that she only agreed to be on the summer show on one condition.

“They told me Jake wouldn’t be,” she said. “They clued me in a few days before we started filming, but by that point I was all packed and ready to go.”

Vienna need not worry about wearing a life preserver.

Jake was voted off the episode before last, but not before three weeks of fireworks between himself, Vienna and her current boyfriend, Kasey Kahl.

Vienna Girardi admits having Jake Pavelka around was “uncomfortable” but says she and Kasey had fun and are friends with many Bachelor Pad stars.

In fact, it Erica Rose that encouraged her nose job.

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.

Her engagement to Jake Pavelka was a disaster of epic proportions.

His attempts to woo Ali Fedotowsky were largely unsuccessful.

But it was all worth it for Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, because those failures brought them together. Now, the lovebirds are taking their nauseating relationship to the next level - they're moving into a pad of their own!

YIKES: Kasey will now have to worry a little less about how to guard and protect Vienna's fake boobs and nose. They'll all be living under the same roof!

Vienna Girardi, 25, and Kasey Kahl, 27, are both cast members on the summer hit Bachelor Pad, where they are already stirring up the most drama.

They began dating earlier this spring, proving that there is a soulmate out there for every human being, no matter how painful they might be.

For a glimpse of what life is likely to be like in their new place, check out this screen capture from Monday night's Bachelor Pad premiere ...

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.

Vienna Girardi goes up against ex Jake Pavelka on the season premiere of Bachelor Pad next week. But this won't be the same old Vienna Girardi, folks.

Oh, she'll still be an attention-starved whack job. But she'll look a bit different, as Girardi says in the latest issue of Us Weekly, which features her first post-nose job photo.

"I always felt like I had this little face with, like, a Mr. Potato Head nose!" Vienna says. "In school, they called me Pinocchio. After The Bachelor, bloggers called me 'horse face.' Evil names. I even went blonde because my dark hair made my nose look bigger!"

Vienna says the procedure was painful, but worthwhile. Do you like the new look? Which Vienna Girardi do you prefer?

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.

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl from The Bachelor and Bachelorette are now an item, forming a veritable douchepocalypse of reality TV star annoyance.

The ex-fiancee of Jake Pavelka had reservations about getting close to anyone after being engaged to that stiff for a few weeks. But she's made it work.

"Even opening up to Kasey, like, we were dating for a few months, but I didn't want to go public because I wanted to make sure it was real," she said.

Douchiest Couple Ever

We're finding it hard to guard and protect the contents of our stomachs when we see these two Bachelor franchise castoffs getting lovey dovey with each other.

Vienna says she is "absolutely scared of the possibility of getting engaged again," but luckily, Kasey Kahl is putting her at ease all day every day.

Kasey, who fought for Ali's heart on The Bachelorette, is genuinely a nice, caring, loving person, even when cameras are off," Vienna Girardi says.

"That's what makes all the difference."
