We won’t make you wait until tonight to find out though, just check out this clip for a preview of the venom to come. After you check out the clips, mash the arrows at the top of this page for a look at the hunks and hotties from this year’s Bachelor Pad.
Me. Yow! The lineup seems made for controversy with five ‘super fans’ joining the game this year, including a pair of twins straight out of a gum commercial.
Of course there is plenty of good old affection and fun this year on Bachelor Pad as well, as these two clips demonstrate:
Hosted by Chris Harrison (“The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette”), “Bachelor Pad” returns MONDAY, July 23 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) with its most controversial cast to date, as 15 unforgettable characters from the “Bachelor” franchise — those we love and those we love to hate — gather back at the mansion to live together to possibly find a second chance at love and compete for $250,000. Last season, Michael Stagliano won the money but lost at love — this season he moves into the mansion and will put everything on the line, even his winnings from last season, to find love. Also, fresh off the wrath of Emily on this week’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” Villain Kalon McMahon decides to lick his wounds and move into “Bachelor Pad.” Other residents will include “Bachelorette 5″ fan favorites Ed Swiderski, winner, and contestant Reid Rosenthal, who proposed to Jillian Harris.
Additionally, for the first time, the show will feature five “Super Fans” — including identical twins Brittany and Erica Taltos who will compete as one participant. With so many elements at play to raise the stakes — Kalon is unaware that one of his roommates will be returning ” Bachelor Pad” member Erika Rose, with whom he has a love/hate relationship; Tony Pieper, who was deeply torn over his search for love on “The Bachelorette,” decides that there is really more out there for him and is ready to take another chance on love; Will Blakeley be able to get along with the women in the mansion and will these fresh new faces be able to find true romance in the mix? And so much more — Season 3 is set to bring fireworks, drama, romance and endless possibilities.
Each week the contestants will square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of each challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose. At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves — the men will vote off a woman and vice versa — to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition.
