'Bachelor Pad' season finale: 'Really? Here is where I find out?'

Well rose lovers, were we not entertained? SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t finished watching tonight’s epic three-hour Bachelor Pad finale. If you have, you’re probably still hoarse from yelling at your TV after Holly and the Pad producers left poor Mike Stagliano bruised, battered, and broken hearted. (Okay, maybe I’m the only one who was yelling.) Of course, tonight we also crowned the “winners” — and thank GOD their names did not rhyme with Stacey and Brianna. Did the right team take home the money? Did Ella really need that new nose? Did Team Bachelor go a little too heavy on the flat-iron with Ben’s hair? So many pressing questions! Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click for Kristen Baldwin’s full Bachelor Pad finale recap and Chris Harrison’s exclusive Bachelor Pad blog), but in the meantime, post your thoughts about tonight’s Bachelor Pad finale below. Farewell, rose lovers! Meet you back here in 2012!

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 5


I hope all of you enjoyed a nice long Labor Day weekend. I’m happy to see that once again you were kind enough to make sure part of that extended weekend included your usual Monday night appointment with all of us at Bachelor Pad. Before I left the mansion after last week’s rose ceremony, I informed everybody that from now on they would be competing as a couple and would be voted off as a couple. This didn’t seem like huge news, but by the end of the episode you saw that it really was. READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor Pad' episode 5: 'I brought some, like, very sexy lingerie'

You’ve got to hand it to Erica — the girl’s got a lot of confidence. If you’ve seen tonight’s episode of Bachelor Pad (and SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t) then you know what I’m talking about. I find her near-delusional level of faith in herself endearing, and I, for one, would totally watch her as the Bachelorette. (Can you imagine? Dare to dream.) Anyhow, tonight’s episode had its share of choice moments, including Erica’s extremely awkward attempt at seducing Blake, and Kasey and Vienna’s fight about his extremely awkward attempt at seducing her. (Oh, the horrors that night vision camera has seen!) And we’re just one week away from the finale — will the other contestants finally rise up and overthrow King Kasey, or will he and his low-libidoed queen continue their stampede to the finish line? Make your predictions below (team Ella for the win!), and stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight.

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 4


Before we start talking Bachelor Pad, I just want to say the Bachelor family is thinking about those affected by the hurricane this weekend. Our “Bachelor Gives Back” crew is already thinking of ways to help. Now let’s talk about this week’s dramatic Bachelor Pad episode. We started with the exit of Jake. He left the contestants with some very good advice: If you have any thoughts of winning this thing you have to vote out the power couples. Kasey survived the closest vote yet and as he put it, he feels he is the strongest “strategist” in the house. You would think with Jake gone the house would calm down but that was not the case at all. READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor Pad' episode 4: 'I don't even speak to her and I feel like she drains the life out of me'

Shocker! The quote above does not, in fact, refer to Vienna. But I think those of you who’ve seen tonight’s episode of Bachelor Pad (and SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t) know exactly who Graham was referring to. It was an emotional night, rose lovers, and not just because Princess Crazytears went off on her supposed “partner” yet again. If you’re like me, you found yourself tearing up a bit during Michael and Holly’s heartbreaking heart-to-heart on the couch. (Let her go, Stag! You can do better!) As for the eliminations? Yeah, well… no real surprises there. Can’t wait until the “power couples” have to start turning on each other. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Kristen’s Bachelor Pad episode 4 recap is live), but in the meantime let me know what you thought about tonight’s episode. Did the kissing contest make you sick to your stomach? Would you rather kiss Kasey, Vienna, or the barrel of a loaded gun? And who’s your favorite couple in the house? Let’s hear it, rose lovers!

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 3


I truly hope all of you are singing “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” in your head while reading this blog. Why on earth it’s taken us ten years to get Bret Michaels to come on our show and sing that song is beyond me. The good news is it finally happened, and all seems right with the universe. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if all the sudden the stock market went up and there was peace in the Middle East now. READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor Pad' episode 3: 'You smell that? That's so disgusting.'

Pop quiz, rose lovers: If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of Bachelor Pad (and why are you reading this if that’s the case?) please see if you can guess what caused the horrible stench described in the above quote:

A) Jake’s cologne, Fame Whore.

B) The Pad’s hot tub, before or after a cleaning.

C) The otherwise lovely horses who had the extreme misfortune to be employed during a horseback riding group date Vienna attended.

You’ll have to read my recap for the answer (UPDATE: Click for Kristen’s full Bachelor Pad episode 3 recap), but if you’ve seen tonight’s episode, riddle me this: Will anyone be brave enough to take on the power couples? If tonight’s elimination is any indication, the answer is: Not anytime soon. So who to root for? (Besides Stag, who probably has no chance.) Do you have a favorite? Or a least least favorite? And who did you think looked the best in his speedo? (My vote, as always, is Michael Phelps.)

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 2


After week one’s epic three-hour event, week two started off with the same gusto. With things changing so much the competitions have become huge this season. The only safe place to be sitting during elimination is with a rose. This week’s competition was rough to watch. It was interesting how it opened up a lot of issues in the house, and also within certain individuals. READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor Pad' episode 2: 'You guys already forced Jake and I to go on TV'

First of all, you ignorant cow, it’s “Jake and me,” not “Jake and I.” Second of all, shut up. Okay, with that out of the way, rose lovers, let us discuss tonight’s roller-coaster episode of Bachelor Pad. (SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen it.) That was one fantastically humiliating challenge, was it not? And what a romantic ending! And I’m not even being facetious (much)! Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Kristen’s Bachelor Pad episode 2 recap is now live), but in the meantime, what did you think of episode 2? Did your heart break for Mike Stagliano? Do you think Kasey and Vienna are going to dominate themselves right out of the game? And if Erica is “fat,” what does that make me? (Don’t answer that.) Let’s talk Bachelor Pad!

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' season premiere


When I was told who would be moving into Bachelor Pad this season I had high expectations. Those expectations didn’t come close to the drama and excitement that will unfold over the next six weeks. I remember sitting in the control room that very first night and someone jokingly said, “This is so good we’re going to need a three hour premiere.”¬†We all laughed because in this day and age of ADD, channel-surfing viewers there’s no such thing as a three-hour show. Turns out that little joke became a reality. We had so much to show you this first week it had to be three hours — just think about what we have to show you when things really get good!
