Who Is the Winner of 'Bachelor Pad'?Welcome to the two-hour season finale of 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). Yes, it was the last episode of the season for the reality show that brought backstabbing and infighting to a whole new level. Heading into the finale, we had three couples remaining.

But only one person could win the $250,000 grand prize. ... Or so you would think.

[Spoiler alert.]

'Bachelor Pad': Kovacs and Elizabeth Mess Around on Top of a Car (VIDEO)

'Bachelor Pad': Kovacs and Elizabeth Mess Around on the Top of a CarThings got a little skanky on the latest 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). And by "skanky" we mean that we've reached a "rolling around and making out on the trunk of a car" level of sluttiness. It's all courtesy of Elizabeth and Kovacs, one of our four final couples on the show. (Though by the end of the night, the number of couples would be paired down to three.)

[Spoiler alert.]

Before we even reached this point, three of the "excess" ladies were booted from the show. It came as no big surprise that they were all women who hadn't "coupled up" with a dude. So, Nikki, Gwen and Ashley were eliminated early on. That left us with four couples -- who then had to play a game of "water balloon catch" to see who would win some roses and a "special date."

Who Has the Worst Fake Boobs on 'Bachelor Pad'? (VIDEO)

Who Has the Worst Fake Boobs on 'Bachelor Pad'?The new installment of 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) was all about asking the tough questions. Luckily for us, at least one of these questions involved the important issue of fake boobs.

... But before we get to that, we have a tiny question of our own. It involves an issue that we sometimes wonder about when watching reality TV. And our query is this: "Hey, is it possible for a reality show to be too mean to its players?"

It seems like the creators of 'Bachelor Pad' are never too troubled by this thought. Especially based on the events that took place during tonight's show -- which was kind of a brutal marathon of humiliation. By the halfway point of the episode, most of the female contestants were already in tears.

Lovers Wes and Gia Are Separated on 'Bachelor Pad' (VIDEO)

Lovers Wes and Gia Are Separated on 'Bachelor Pad'There's no type of romance that lasts for less time than a romance on a reality show. Even the average lifespan of a mayfly lasts longer than a relationship on reality TV. This is a lesson that has been hammered home over and over again.

[Spoiler alert.]

And on the newest 'Bachelor Pad' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC), we get to learn this lesson once more. Contestant Gia has a boyfriend back home. But now, she's falling for fellow housemate Wes. It seems that Wes sang a song to Gia, and that made Gia become all fluttery in the heart, romance-wise. (It also made her temporarily forget about her old boyfriend.)

Body Painting in Bikinis on 'Bachelor Pad' (VIDEO)

Body Painting in Bikinis on 'Bachelor Pad'"Everybody wants to be an artist," says 'Bachelor Pad' co-host Melissa Rycroft. But on this new, fairly skanky reality show, "art" takes the form of rolling around in paint, while wearing bikinis ... and a Speedo.

Here's what goes down on the latest episode (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). "Weatherman" (and former 'Bachelorette' contestant) Jon Novack wins a date with three of the ladies in the house. These women are: Gwen, Peyton, and Ashley.

Melissa then announces that this date will be "artistic." What artistic means in practice is body painting. And so, Jon and his dates romp around in skimpy swimwear, while splashing paint on each other.

Melissa Rycroft on Co-Hosting ABC's 'Bachelor Pad,' Baby Names and Advice for Ali and Roberto

Melissa RycroftMelissa Rycroft continues to turn a bad breakup into a great career opportunity.

After successful stints on 'Good Morning America' and 'Dancing With the Stars,' the adorable mom-to-be, who was unceremoniously dumped by 'Bachelor' star Jason Mesnick on live television last year, is now the co-host of ABC's new reality series 'Bachelor Pad,' premiering tonight at 8PM ET/PT.

The show will put 19 former 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' contestants into a house (the same house from the 'Bachelor' franchise, Rycroft told me), whether they will compete in various challenges for a hefty sum of $250,000; and since this is the 'Bachelor' we're talking about, they may even find love, as well.

Last week, Rycroft, who announced last month that she is expecting her first child with husband Tye Strickland, chatted with TV Squad about 'The Bachelor Pad,' her whirlwind year and the advice she has for 'Bachelorette' Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez.

Melissa Rycroft to Co-Host 'Bachelor' Spin Off

by Audrey Fine, posted Jun 8th 2010 10:20AM
Melissa Rycroft's parents must've taught her that old "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" adage, because she's pretty good at doing it.

Even if you don't watch 'The Bachelor,' you'll recall that the former Dallas Cowboy cheerleader was proposed to and then unceremoniously dumped by Jason Mesnick in back-to-back episodes of the 13th installment. And, while suffering a humiliating public blow would be enough to send most women running as far from the spotlight as possible, the resilient Rycroft dusted off her ego and replaced an ailing Nancy O'Dell on 'Dancing with the Stars' (she and partner Tony Dovolani finished third) and even sidled up to Ryan Seacrest as a co-host of last year's 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rocking Eve,'

'Bachelor' Jason Mesnick Explains Why He Chose Molly (VIDEO)

Jason Mesnick, who proposed to Melissa Rycroft at the end of 'The Bachelor,' only to famously change his mind during a reunion show for contestant Molly Malaney, said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that he decided to do so after show producers told him Malaney was about to become the next 'Bachelorette.'

"I don't know if everybody knows that Molly was selected to be 'The Bachelorette,' and they told me, 'If you ever want to talk to her, tonight's the night you have to do it,'" Mesnick said. "They said, 'She's going to go on to 25 other guys, or you ask her tonight.'"

Melissa Rycroft Joins 'Entertainment Tonight' as Special Correspondent

The incredible trajectory of Melissa Rycroft goes on.

PEOPLE reports that the former 'Bachelor' contestant has been named a special correspondent for 'Entertainment Tonight.' As part of the job, Rycroft will cover a number of assignments for the entertainment program, including premieres, award shows, set visits and Hollywood parties.

Just a year ago, the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was one of 25 women vying for Jason Mesnick's heart on season 13 of 'The Bachelor.' Rycroft won it, of course -- but not for long. During the show's reunion special, Mesnick revealed that he had lingering feelings for runner-up Molly Malaney, then dumped Rycroft on national television (Mesnick and Malaney have since announced plans to wed as part of an ABC special, set to air Mar. 8.)

Samantha Harris to leave Dancing with the Stars

Samantha Harris on the set o Dancing with the Stars.My one wish has finally come true: Samantha Harris is officially leaving Dancing with the Stars. People has announced that Samantha will not be returning when the tenth season begins in March.

While the producers and Tom Bergeron have voiced how they are going to miss Samantha, I'm happy to finally see her off screen. She has made several fashion faux-pas, has accidentally said contestants scores before the judges revealed their paddles, and has had poor judgment when cutting off interviews. I can't believe that she's been around for eight seasons.
