'Bachelor Pad' Week 5 Recap: A Last-Minute Twist Leads to a Shocking Upset
The fallout from last week's dramatic rose ceremony had the whole house on edge -- but especially Chris, who was furious at how many people had lied to him about how they were going to vote. Chris's plan to vote off Blakeley and keep Jamie around backfired, putting a big fat target on his back.
"The Great Fall of China"
Chris directed his rage at both Kalon and Ed, who he thought had betrayed him the worst. There was some yelling and chest thumping, and everyone left feeling pretty certain that Chris would be kicked off this week
That looked even more likely the next day, when Chris's now-archenemy Blakely won the challenge for the girls, gaining immunity. Not that anybody was too surprised -- the challenge was stacking and carrying cups and saucers without breaking them, and Blakeley had an obvious advantage. "So glad I worked at Hooters for 13 years," said Blakely, the only person who has ever uttered that sentence. Her victory was even sweeter because it put her in the prime position of leading a coup against Chris. "That is poetic justice if I've ever seen it," said Kalon, the authority on these kinds of things.
To Chris's further dismay, Blakeley then turned around and helped her new partner, Tony, win the competition for the guys. Her incessant coaching bugged everyone but paid off. It was imperative that Chris win that challenge, but he didn't even come close. "Today is my worstnightmare," he said.
Blakely decided to take fellow challenge winner Tony on her date, so she got to award her rose to another guy in the house she found deserving. She picked Kalon -- an interesting choice, since he doesn't exactly scream "loyal ally." But his sudden status as Chris's number one enemy probably helped seal the deal.
Traffic alert for East L.A.
Kalon picked his partner (and bedfellow) Lindzi to go on his date, and they sped off into the night in a fancy Bentley, Lindzi decked in diamonds from Neil Lane. The show had shut down a bridge in East L.A. so they could have a romantic dinner in the middle of the street, chandelier and candles included.
Kalon seized the opportunity to show us a less devious, more sensitive side of himself. "I had lost all hope and faith in this concept, and finding you is the most pleasant surprise I've ever dreamed of," he told Lindzi. "I cannot get enough of you." Those words would ring a lot sweeter if not for the bazillion times he's prided himself on how much he lies. Lindzi seemed into it, but reservedly so.
