Bachelor Pad - Episode Two

Ok, so obviously I'm not as devoted to re-capping Pad as I was to -ette. But I am watching it now and finding it kind of interesting. I liked how Weatherman and Gia were getting all strategic and trying to form alliances, etc.It was kind of even messing with my own head. As I walked around work and friends, I kept thinking about how I should act like I'm friends with everyone and on their team, but then BETRAY them at the first opportunity and vote them off the island to further my own agenda.
Of course, I have no real agenda.....

Speaking of which.... is it just me, or does $250,000 NOT actually sound like that much money??? I mean, by the time you give half of it away to the government, that only leaves you with about $125,000... which is approximately MY yearly salary [in my dreams]. It's also kind of an odd number... not a nice solid number like "Half a mil!" aka $500,000. Which does make me wonder if there is going to be some sort of twist at the end involving love and money, like they can get even MORE money if they forgo true love or something. I don't know... I'm just saying $250,000 is a weird/low number.
I find this hilarious... how they "don't know" Gwen's age. And I thought it was pretty harsh/slightly funny? when Jesse, aka-Max-look-alike said that he thought of Gwen as a Mom. Ouch!

All the making out and hooking up definitely makes my stomach churn. It's just seriously gross and disgusting.... tho not as disgusting as the pie-eating contest. Why in the HELL would they put that on TV?????? That was the sickest thing I have ever seen in my entire life, and I am talking BEFORE they started vomiting. WTF?!?!?!?!!!!!
Also, my self esteem definitely took a steep nose dive for a minute, looking at all the hot girls strutting around in bikinis. I mean, this is "reality" TV... these girls are like any of us... WE should look like them, no??

But then I reassured myself that they are NOT representing "reality" and most of REAL girls walking around in every day life are not as pretty as the Bachelorettes. Well at least real girls outside of LA....

PLUS, everyone knows that Christina Hendricks is the woman that all the men LOVE the most:
I also am really liking Elizabeth this show. I was enraged on Jake's season when she tricked him into making out with her forehead. But I really thought she redeemed herself at the WTA... and I'm finding her pretty damn amusing on this show. I kind of feel like she is putting on a good, entertaining show for us... and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I liked the part in her confessional when she is like "Uhhh, I'm so emotional right now!" and wipes a tear away. I kept saying that all weekend as I cleaned out my closets and got rid of old clothes. "I'm so emotional right now."
Anyway, I think that's all I've got for now. I figured I better make at least one Bachelor Pad post so Grace has somewhere to post her comments other than an antiquated Bachelorette finale post.

Yours in the Single Life,


  1. Hi Julie.

    Wanted to let you know that "antiquated" is one of my favorite words. I try to use it whenever possible!

  2. Thank you! I will continue to post my thoughts here :)
