The Stress of Bachelor Pad

Am I the only one who finds myself sometimes not breathing while watching Bachelor Pad 2? I admit, Brad’s second season of the Bachelor was the first season of anything Bachelor/Bachelorette-related that I have watched since Trista & Ryan. No joke. So, I’m still getting used to all the drama. Spoiler Alert: You may not want to read this if you have yet to watch last night’s episode!

But, when you combine love/hate relationships with Big Brother-esque challenges and a quarter of a million dollars, it’s pretty stressful!! About 95% of my stress comes from this one source:



As if his shirt in this picture isn’t enough to make me cringe, his voice gives me the creeps. Can anyone tell me where his accent is from? And the constant batting of Vienna’s eyes needs to stop. I know producers only show us so much, but really, their display of character on this show has not been the best and I certainly wouldn’t want to surround myself with people like them. If I were on the show, I’d want them off {doesn’t that make sense since they’re the “power couple?”} So, in my opinion, people better start making some slick moves otherwise, our next Speidi couple will be winning Bachelor Pad 2.

On to more important things.

Blake is gorgeous.



It’s too bad his game strategy is not. He’s definitely just in it for the money. Sad face.

I also LOVED Chris Harrison telling Vienna that she was free to walk out of the house. Total fist pump for you, Chris!

Oh, did I mention that I missed the first FORTY-FIVE minutes of the show? Yep. You see, I’m one of those old school people who doesn’t have TiVo so I depend on my handy-dandy TVguide.com to inform me when my shows are coming on. TV Guide LIED to me by telling me the show ran from 8-10. Lies, lies, lies. I was highly disappointed when I turned on the TV at 7:45 to find Melissa with a date card.

Lastly, Ames and Jackie. Need I say more? Ames is so GALLANT! Isn’t that a great word for him? I think I would have done the same thing had my significant other been voted off. Why bother staying if you’re in love? :) Gosh, I love Ames.


Now, aside from Bachelor Pad I’m also talking about something a bit more serious over on my sweet friend Ashlyn’s blog My Unrehearsed Life. So, head on over there and say “hi” :)

Ahhhh, I just posted on Ashlyn's page after reading your post... jumped over here to check your blog out and I think I just fell in loves.

You and me can be team Blake. Isn't he just YUMMY!?!?!? :)

And I love that you fist pumped to Chris. I was totally yelling at my tv the same thing, HAHAHAHA!

And Ames... gosh, I cried. Did you cry? I LOVED IT!!!! But I read this morning they may not be together anymore??

Lauren said...

I should be watching this show but I'm not... probably a good thing because I'd be addicted. While I love Bachelor/ette I think I get too into these shows sometimes and when there is drama on the show I seriously do get stressed out myself. I can only imagine me after Bachelor Pad.

Stesha said...

I just found your blog from Ashlyns page..... Your adorable!

Bachelor PAD!!! ahh i have missed it this season :( probably better I am having too many shows these days.

Great blog! love it!!!

Girl, you nailed everything on the head. Cannot stand "the power couple" and I find myself really tense through the show. Each episode never ends the way I believe it will. Also, Jackie and Ames... Ohh my goodness, when he walked back to the group just threw his arms out and didn't say a word, then just turns and runs toward the limo... instant tears. This show is literally giving me everything I need. Haha ohh Bachelor Pad. I loved this post and your blog. I found it today through your guest post. Had to become a follower because it looks like we see eye to eye on everything regarding this show! Love it.... do more recaps! I can't get enough.

I have never watched this show so I can't comment, but I was reading on twitter about your blogger drama. I'm of the opinion that you should take the leap and self-host your blog. And here's a post not even by me that I think is awesome to help back me up on that- http://katywidrick.com/2011/04/18/self-hosting-why-how-and-resources-galore/

But then again, you know I'm just really biased against Blogger because I can't comment on a majority of blogger-hosted blogs from work and because I think their other commenting features/support are lacking. So there you have it - plenty of advice you never asked for. Gotta love when people do that, right? :)

Liz Taylor Training said...

ok I DEFINITELY need to get into Bachelor Pad lol

Katie said...

You are so dead on about all of this. I watched it last night and wanted to rip Vienna and Casey's heads off. Why didn't the girls gang up and kick Vienna off? Do they have no brains at all? I don't understand. I think Blake is gorgeous too and I don't blame him for how he was with Melissa. She went crazy stage-5 on him lol I feel bad for Michael. Ok, I think that's it for now. UNTIL next week ;)

Ashley said...

ahh havent watched it yet ...so Im not gonna read! lol ..im gonna try to watch tonight :)

Jen said...

I have so much love for this show lol. Vienna's personality really.. REALLY.. annoys me. Then add Casey and it's almost unbearable.
I kind of thought Blake was acting like an ass for the way he kept saying how not into Melissa he is, then acting to her like he was... but sadly I suppose it's all part of the way the game is played. Not to mention she is craaaazy.
I thought Ames running after Jackie was the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. I really hope they are still together!!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Haha I was cracking up when Chris told Vienna she could leave. I really don't like her or her horrible voiced boyfriend, Casey. How do people not see their manipulation?!

Miss Lindsay said...

Vienna and Kasey make me cringe! I do not understand how they have the "power" - get them off ASAP.
And Ames... gallant is right! I wonder if they are still together? Google tells me yes, but who knows.

Carolyn said...

I hear ya! This show is NUTS!!! I think his voice issue is like a speech problem, not an accent. I think. And Vienna is crazy. LOL I was so sad to see Gia go!!! And Ames and Jackie were SO CUTE!!!

dana @ wonder forest said...

i totally forgot this was on last night. oh well haha. yeah i find Casey super creepy... it sounds like his voice it stuck inside of his voicebox or something. or like he has a bubble in his throat. they are the oddest match.
xo dana

Karen said...

Whoa, it started before 8?? Shoot, maybe it's time I actually venture into the world of tivo. How about how awesome Aimes is??? Once again he made me cry with how sweet he was jumping in the limo with his love <3

Laura said...

I've never watched the show, but I think after seeing Blake, I'm gonna have to start! Love you and Ashlyn's blogs! It's so sweet that y'all are back home friends!

sherri lynn said...

Totally agree with all of your Bachelor Pad comments! Kasey & Vienna honestly make me nauseous - she is so full of drama! My heart melts at Jackie+Ames = they are precious! This show is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. It's so dramatic I can't help but be reeled in!

CMae said...

Blake lost all cool points when he called Erica "thick" on freakin tv...I was pissed who the EFF says that!?! Not cool dude.

I just read online that AMes and Jackie aren't together anymore which totally is like random to me seeing how she JUST tweeted all but a few days ago a picture of them together!!! WTF right?

Shea said...

Oh my good lord, I am obsessed with anything Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor Pad. It's ridiculous! But Vienna MUST GO! Ughhhhhhh! And yes, Ames is GALLANT. Perfect word. I just love him. He & Jackie better stay together!

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

WOW!! That's a looong time to go without seeing the Bachelor or Bachelorrette!! I must say I am obsessed and haven't missed any of the seasons except for the first 2!! I can't stand Casey and Vianna! grrr why are they both on there and such a POWER couple! They make me sick! I got just as excited when Chris Harrison through her under the bus! LOL
and Ames is such a gallant! ;)

Lindsey said...

Ames is so GALLANT! Best word ever. I got serious chills and tears when I saw the ending. SOOO AMAZING! And Kasey and VIenna ... no words.

A said...

So glad I'm not the only one that was glued to my tv for those two hours on Monday! I agree with you about everything!! Right on!

Brianna said...

I'm so glad you're watching too! You should try and watch what you missed online cuz the competition part was great. And I heart Blake! haha I'm totally with you, I don't get why no one has tried to vote Kasey & Vienna off!
