'Bachelor Pad' - Top 5 Awkward Moments in Episode 2

Erica - Bachelor PadIf you thought last week's 'Bachelor Pad' was knee-deep in awkwardness, the first 10 minutes of this week's episode probably realigned your world view quite a bit.

Nothing says ego-boost like being pelted with paint-filled eggs, as poor Erica quickly discovered (though, to be fair, I kind of want to throw eggs at her every time I see her in that tiara, too).

Still, there was enough double-crossing, manipulation and awkward making out to keep everyone occupied, and a twist in the game gave someone a second chance at survival.

Read on for our Top 5 awkward moments, and two that were "aww"-worthy.

1. Target Practice
We can always count on 'Bachelor Pad' to class up the joint, and fans who watched last year will remember that there were some fairly mean-spirited contests even then. This year, the producers have streamlined their efforts to provide maximum cruelty -- why just insult someone when you can also throw something gross at them to really prove your point?

Thus, 'Target on Your Back' was born, and Erica definitely suffered the worst of it, being pelted for being the one who the guys thought should go home and for being the least attractive, ouch. We were all feeling totally sympathetic ... until she pointed out that Ella was way fatter and less attractive than her, so she totally didn't get why everyone was picking on her and not the single mom. Couldn't have happened to a nicer person, right?

And, of course, all the girls covered Robo-Jake with paint for being his charming and creepy self, but since brooding seems to be his default setting regardless, no-one really noticed him pouting over it. (Didn't you love the producers introducing a convenient "twist" in the eliminations to ensure that Jake would stick around to cause drama for another week, though?)

2. Melissa and Blake
Oh, Blake -- didn't you get the memo that faking an attraction to a woman in order to win a game is not only totally skeevy, but also liable to lose the game you're trying to win? Cheaters never prosper!

And sure, maybe Melissa is a weeny bit unstable and possibly displays more than a few stalkerish tendencies, but that doesn't excuse the guy deciding to kiss her as "a really easy way to pacify her." (I hear chloroform works just as well.)

The most awkward moment of all came when Blake was flirting up a storm with Holly in the bedroom and Melissa, on the prowl for "her man," came in and laid down on the bed beside them, effectively ending any normal conversation they might've been having. Eventually Holly got the hint and scurried away, allowing Melissa to open up a can of verbal whoop-ass on Blake. At least until he condescendingly told her not to get "emotional" -- what's next, Blake, going to ask her if she's on her period, too?

Last week, I couldn't tell the difference between him and Kirk, but now I know that the one who's acting like an ass is 99 percent likely to be Blake -- thanks for the assistance, buddy!

3. Kasey Playing Puppet Master
Whatever happened to the dorky, painfully earnest dude who was trying to guard and protect Ali's heart in her season of 'Bachelorette'? All that exposure to Vienna must've scrambled Kasey's circuits, because gone is the weedy guy who figured that permanent marks on one's body are a great way to impress a girl you hardly know, and in his place is a beefed up, posturing jerk who talks like a cross between a cracked out superhero and The Godfather.

First, he and Vienna made people actually have sympathy for Jake (a heinous crime if ever there was one) by tearing him a new one when he came to them to ask for protection, then he went around pretending to make deals with just about everyone only to back out of them when a better offer came along, resulting in Jackie and Ames leaving, and he made Gia have a complete meltdown and quit the game too.

If that wasn't icky enough, before the eliminations, he flexed his arm in a disturbing fashion to simulate a beating heart and, without a hint of irony, leered at the camera: "It's guard and protect time, you ready?"

Look, up in the sky -- is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Doucheman!

4. Chris Harrison Lays Down the Law
Fifty percent awkward and fifty percent awesome was Chris Harrison's verbal smackdown of Vienna, after the drama queen accused him and the 'Bachelor' producers of "[forcing] Jake and I to go on TV and do a national break-up," and forcing them to be in the 'BP' house together.

"Who's forcing you to be here?" the host with the most challenged her. "Right now, who's forcing you to be here? That door is open, that door is open -- if you're unhappy, I'll call a cab for you."


5. Gia's Exit
The latest casualty of Kasey's puppeteering, Gia thought she was giving Graham some friendly advice when she told him to break up the power couples, but when Graham told Kasey about her plan (which was already kind of a no-brainer) Kasey couldn't resist going to confront her in the most condescending way possible. Needless to say, she flipped, yelled at Graham, burst into tears and quit the game -- after changing out of her weird dressing gown mini-dress, of course.

And two Awws:

1. Holly and Michael
Why can't those crazy kids just work things out? After one of the most traumatic dates in 'Bachelor' history at a haunted hospital, Holly and Michael took things to the roof to talk about their failed relationship. Michael admitted that he's still in love with Holly, and though Holly didn't exactly say the same, there's clearly some chemistry between the pair (and Michael's a much nicer guy than Blake, c'mon!). Also, what sort of bizarro world are we living in where crazy-eyes Michelle Money is the voice of reason and the house matchmaker? What was she smoking during Brad's season that made her so cuckoo?

2. Jackie and Ames
Jackie and Ames really were the tragic Romeo and Juliet of the house, and the worst part was that Ames figured they were safe after making a deal with Kasey. Unsurprisingly, Kasey double-crossed them, sending Jackie home, but Ames surprised everyone by deciding to follow her out of the game -- aww! "I think it's safe to say we won 'Bachelor Pad' 2," he beamed, as they left in the "happiest limo ride in 'Bachelor' history," and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Mad props to him for rocking the pink pants so confidently, too.

Are you sad to see Ames, Jackie and Gia go? Do you think Jake will survive next week's eliminations?

The first 2 episodes of Bachelor Pad were exciting and dramatic. I can't wait to see what is going to happen on the rest of the season.  Right before the premiere last season's winners, Natalie Getz and David Good, sat down with CupidsPulse.com to discuss their predictions for this season.  Check it out: http://www.cupidspulse.com/‘bachelor-pad-2’-david-good-and-natalie-getz-share-their-views-and-predictions-for-the-new-season/.
