Sex, lies, and videotape: The backstabbing starts in earnest on Week 3 of 'Bachelor Pad'
Chris Harrison says the words 'nut sack'
The contestants were ecstatic to learn that the week's challenge was somewhere other than their Padded Prison, and most were equally pleased to learn the theme of the challenge: human hot fudge sundaes. Part obstacle course, part relay race, part delicious dessert, the challenge determined which couple would win immunity, and which would return home to lick their wounds/hot fudge topping.
But here was the twist: Instead of competing against their usual partners, everyone was shuffled to the person next to them! Catastrophe! Avowed enemies Kalon and Erica Rose were paired, setting up Kalon for one of his nefarious quips -- about how Erica Rose should be great at this challenge, because she'll just eat her way through it, nom nom nom.
The girls were the first to swim through a pool of foamy ice cream, slip down a slide of fudge, army-crawl through whipped cream, cover themselves with nuts, climb into a burlap sack, and hop their way to their partners, who then did it in reverse. Michael and David the Super Fan made it to the cherry on top in an exciting photo finish, but David won the challenge "by a nose." Meanwhile, Ed again demonstrated how spectacularly he can lose by not even finishing the race, despite a significant head start thanks to partner Jaime.
So Ed and Jamie both had a vote against them going into the competition, and David and Rachel, his partner, were safe. Good for David-- there's no way he would have made it past this week otherwise. (He and his Super Fan ilk are not well-regarded around these parts.)
A postpubescent prom
For the second time this season, David got to pick out a few gals to take on a dream date. And wow, did he choose poorly. Blakeley got to go, which was no surprise because she had thrown him a bone last episode by choosing him for a date. Erica Rose was next up -- yes, the same one who called David ugly and told him that she'd make his life a living hell. Then David called up Jaime, who is Blakeley's archenemy. (Remember, she's trying to "steal" Blakeley's partner, Yucky Chris.)
