Creepy introduction: superfans mix up the season 3 opener of "Bachelor Pad"
Welcome to Season 3 of "Bachelor Pad" -- where spurned men and women from past seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" go to extend their 15 minutes of fame into a summer of sex and scandal. These are some of the most "memorable and controversial" (that is, awful) people to ever grace the steps of the show's heavily trafficked mansion. The contestants will compete for a quarter of a million dollars -- and for one another's affection/bodies.
This season has a twist: Six "superfans" will join the cast as contestants with an equal chance of winning the money and breaking a few hearts.
Meet the Cast
Some of the more infamous contestants were showcased in a special intro segment, and Chris from Emily's season was first up. Chris -- though probably too nice to be on this show -- has revealed a nasty streak, and he'll undoubtedly use it to his advantage at the Pad. He expressed an interest in Lindzi, who had been dumped by Ben in favor of the despised Courtney.
The rivalry between Reid and Ed started when Reid returned to Jillian Harris's season to beg for Jillian's heart despite having been sent home. Ed won her love in the end, only to have the relationship end due to his infidelity. "I wasn't prepared to be in a serious relationship at that point," Ed said. Sounds like he would have been a better fit for "Bachelor Pad" to begin with.
Blakely still prides herself on being "assertive and blunt" -- the same attitude that got her into trouble with the other womenon Ben's season. She said that she looks forward to seeing her friend Jaclyn, but it quickly became clear that Jaclyn wants nothing to do with her.
America loves to hate Kalon, and it was clear that he'd be milking that for all it's worth. "Everyone loves a bad guy," he bragged. "Guess what, America -- your favorite villain is back on "Bachelor Pad," and I'm going to ruin your f***ing summer." If anyone can, it's him.
Next we got to meet the fans, starting with Paige, who showed bad judgment off the bat by picking Chris as her ideal partner. Fan No. 2 was Chris "SWAT," a macho SWAT officer with a throbbing vein in his forehead and a secret penchant for unwinding after work with "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."
Donna is a voluptuous attention seeker who insisted, "I am made for the 'Bachelor Pad.'" She's got a hot body, a thirst for competition, and a huge crush on Michael, last season's winner. "We're definitely hooking up, no doubt about it."
Then there was David, who, like Chris, had his eye on Lindzi. He's an MMA fighter who "goes in there to win," and he's in it for the money.
Finally, we were introduced to the identical twins, Brittany and Erica. They're a pair of bubbly blondes who finish each other's sentences but are essentially very different -- tame Erica is a virgin and wild child Brittany is "definitely not." They will go into the Pad as a team and count as one person in everything. Everything.
