Hercules Hangs At
ABC’s BACHELOR PAD!!

Published at: Aug. 9, 2010, 7:24 a.m. CST

I am – Hercules!!
A watchable new ABC reality series, “Bachelor Pad” is an enterprise much in the tradition of “Survivor” and “Big Brother” – one played exclusively by former “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” cast members. Each week the contestants compete for immunity. The winner wins immunity not only for him- or herself, but also gets to grant immunity to a contestant of the opposite gender (with a three-on-one date arranged to help along the decision). At the end of each episode, the women vote off one man and the men vote off one woman. Last one standing at the end of the summer takes hom $250,000. The host speaks of “another chance at love” but all the contestants seem firmly focused on the money (particularly the ones who openly indicate they’re already in relationships outside the show). There are 11 gals and eight fellows. All 19 contestants sleep in a single bedroom.
There’s drunken cursing and anger and sadness and regret and crying and slammed doors aplenty. Also? Bikinis and bodies built to wear bikinis competing in a Twister tourney. An important bit of background: A lot of these contestants know each other not only from their own seasons but also from non-televised multi-season “Bachelor”/“Bachelorette” get-togethers. So there’s loads of backstory, a lot of it loaded with its own drama. As someone who hasn’t followed “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” for a few seasons, I have to say I was for the first half-hour or so overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of gabby, attractive people trundling out of limousines. But as the big Twister competition unfolded, several players begin to distinguish themselves, and I did find myself absorbed in the proceedings and invested in the episode’s outcome. More so, frankly, than during a typical episode of the series’ mother shows. The Los Angeles Times says:
… has two major attractions. The many fans of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" get to see some of their favorites back in action, including crazy Michelle from Season 14 and the villainous Wes, who admitted he went on "The Bachelorette" to become famous rather than fall in love (can you imagine?). And everyone gets a glimpse at the growing but still intimate world of reality stars.…
The Washington Post says:
… if you're morbidly curious about people who have been through the reality show wringer -- tabloids, public scrutiny, online forums devoted to discussing their every flaw -- and would willingly come back for more, I suggest you tune in for a truly bizarre viewing experience. … There's no choice except to revel in its tawdry entertainment. … Turns out, between seasons, "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants from past shows get together for grand reunions where all kinds of debauchery takes place. (Memo to ABC: Why aren't you filming that? We've already got the title: "Bachelor Party!") Just our luck, these extracurricular activities have resulted in the kind of insanity that can happen only when so many beautiful people are in proximity to one other. …
The Dallas Morning News says:
… … most of the contestants are refreshingly forthright in explaining why they are here. "I came here for the money," says one. As Juan Barbieri from season 5 puts it: "If I have to choose between the love of my life and a quarter million dollars, I'm gonna take the money and run." …
ABC News says:
… Nearly all of the contestants are from the past two seasons of the parent series, and all are endowed with physically excellent DNA and wardrobes that display it to its best advantage. Intelligence likely was considered a detriment. In the main competition, a good old-fashioned game of Twister, at least four of the contestants were eliminated for failing to distinguish left from right. … ABC, fearful of sharing the secret ending with potentially blabbermouth critics, declined to make the final few minutes available, a reasonable precaution if you assume anyone could sit through this and still care.
It’ll be interesting to see if ABC maintains its Monday dominance with “Bachelor Pad” as it has this summer with the just-concluded “Bachelorette”:

    man after a few nights it would be really hard to hold in your farts. The first or second night, sure you could manage, but come night 3, it's gonna be really tough to ignore your farts in an attempt to appear to be sexy. Must suck to be those guys, the women would have it easy though, since women don't fart

    "bodies built to wear bikinis "

    by jim

    So they only selected the former contestants who didn't get fat?<p>"those bachelor contestants look about 1 drink away from expoloring their homosexual side"<br>By "exploring" did you mean "revealing"?<p>I wonder how many of them have herpes?<p>Anyone else ever see "The Littlest Groom"? <br>Is he one this?<p>After 19 "seasons" of The Bachelor/Bachelorette, only 1 couple has remained together. Nice to see them finally admitting what the true "prize" is for competing on these shows: becoming a pseudo-celebrity and getting paid to get laid.

  • Aug. 9, 2010, 11:01 a.m. CST

    wait...

    by gotilk

    I should have picked just one of those examples. They both give me the same feeling. The feeling I get when watching most any reality TV. A sort of self-loathing mixed with a baser, brutal instinctive desire to take in the suffering of others. Pretty good reason to avoid all of the above. At least amazing race was entertaining, somehow.

    Another MLK Quote

    by mjgtexas

    "Do you feel it's fair to request a multi-billion dollar program of preferential treatment for the Negro, or any other minority?" Dr. King: "I do indeed...Within common law, we have ample precedents for special compensatory programs. ... America adopted a policy of special treatment for her millions of veterans...They could negotiate loans from banks to launch businesses. They could receive special points to place them ahead in competition for civil service jobs...There was no appreciable resentment of the preferential treatment being given to the special group." -- (Interview,1965, p.367)....funny how white people take one quote to fit their point of view while ignoring multitude of others.

    Plus they are usually so eager to please that they give up the butt pretty easily. But i've also been with a fat girl that was terrible in bed all she wanted me to do was lay on her back after we were done, It was really weired and sort of anti-climactic on the night

    Big boned

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    I've never actually be with a fat fat chick, just chicks that carry a little extra weight on their frame and aren't exactly size 2's. Height also helps if you can find a bigger boned gal who's 5"10 then she'll rock your world

    Joe Schmo anyone?

    by HollywoodHellraiser

    Look at the first show on tv and was hooked...all over again!<p>It was such a great, fun little reality show and made you feel Matt was one of the guys!<p>You liked his modesty, his feelings, his lack of talent, and his good nature attitude! Plus it had the hot as hell blonde and Kristen Wiig to boot!<p>Too bad the second season with another Joe Schmo was lame. I guess the show became too aware of itself.<p>Anyways I won't be watching this ABC shit as I have stopped watching reality shows altogether!

    Thanks ABC! That's very white of you.

    by sevadro

    Stay classy ABC/Disney! Keep perpetuating the myth that only white people are beautiful and interesting. Just be sure to throw in a sexy Asian and/or Latino chick - so you can appear to be evenhanded. Even though all you want to do is watch them get fucked by white dudes.

    calling this watchable is like calling pine cones edible

    by BadMrWonka

    only true in the strictest, most literal sense of the word.

    Damn, looking at this group of unattractive, bookwormish virgins I thought it was. Bet none of them ever drank a colt 45.

    Happy Boy

    by Titus05

    there are plenty of black people on Curb Your Enthusiasm...one of the funniest characters on the show is black (Leon)...Seinfeld had minorities as well...there aren't any shows on the air today that are strictly Caucasion...at least a minor or supporting character needs to be a minority...even the black themed shows on BET have token white characters...doesn't ABC place 1 or 2 minority 'token' castmembers on every 'regular' edition of the Bachelor/Bachelorette to at least avoid the appearance of racism even if they know they will be kicked off on Day 1 or 2?...so this 'Bachelor Pad' has set the civil rights movement back 200 years!!

    Is America so sexually repressed?

    by V'Shael

    If you want to watch people fucking, get some porn from the internet. It's free, don't you know.<br /><br />What the fuck is the point of a show like this? Cock teasing and blue balls, and willthey/won'tthey "flirting" ? Ass holes.<br /><br />Wake me when they have a show where goofy looking teens compete in violent sports where actual sex is the prize. <br /><br />The winners get their pick from young dumb cheer leader types who'd normally never get with a nerd, to MILF-tastic gaping pussied ex-porn stars, who'll give the nerd a lesson he never forgets. (About always wearing protection, most likely.)<br /><br />I'd watch that.<br /><br />Fuck it, with $10,000 I'm sure I could make it.
