… 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
Aug. 9, 2010, 7:34 a.m. CST
do we really need to see the God damned "Situation" in the top right of every other page here? That show is an abortion of everything good in this world. The widespread popularity of shit like that is a serious mark on American culture. It's not enough to just ignore anymore, because it's fucking everywhere.

those bachelor contestants look about 1 drink away from expoloring their homosexual side. Also why didn't any of the contestantys from the fat bachelor season get invited..oh wait, i suppose thats a retorical question

where were the black, asian and spanish people on Seinfeld? where the black, asian and spanish people on curb your enthusiasm or Arrested Development? why was the cast of Seinfeld entirely Jewish except for the WASP girls the guys date? why is the plot of very Judd Apatow movie a bunch of Jewish dudes macking on non-jewish blonde women? did you just wake up in 2010 and realize that Hollywood favors certain groups? why does the specific case of Bachelor... which is a show for middle aged women the one thing in Hollywood that offends you? is it surprising to you that 45 year old white women want to fantasize about marrying successful, handsome, all-american 35 year old white dudes and not black or asian guys? we all lose for posting in this talkback but your whining is just crazy
These people have non-televised get-togethers? Sounds like a fuckfest. But, then, I assume every giant social gathering I don't get invited to is a fuckfest.

Do you mean in the same way a car accident is "watchable"? With body parts strewn about the dampened pavement,so freshly separated from their hosts they still twitch? Or "watchable" like your average TV judge/courtroom program?

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
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.
Aug. 9, 2010, 11:10 a.m. CST
It's the lawyers representing the producers of "I Love Money"<p>Or, at least it would be if the shows those contestants were culled from weren't themselves rip-offs of The Bachelor.

Seems like a very slight variation on Big Brother. Just better looking people most of whom already know one another. Without the "hooking up" goal, there doesn't seem to be anything special here.

"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.

When I read the headline I thought, "Wow - ABC is trying out a Mad Men-ish sitcom set in a SHAG-like bachelor pad! Could be decent." Um, no. Just another show about white punks on dope and the moronic women who love them. I suppose the suits at ABC are just thinking "give the audiences what they want." I doubt if the collective IQ of the people in this photo even cracks three digits. Wow.

I should have been more specific there are some asian women that are hot, but a lot of them aren't. I'd never vote Maggie Q off, infact i'd probabaly lock her up in my basement, lol

I kid you not, it was a fat guy and he had to pick between a bunch of fat chicks. It was called "more to love edition" and my girfriend said it was a great show because it tought you that anyone can be loved no matter what they looked like.<P>So i dumped her inevitable fat ass, Never looked back since. Fat people can't be loved, no one wants them, even other fatties
Aug. 9, 2010, 2:28 p.m. CST
Maybe that was her way of escaping your basement? <P> BWAHAHAHHAHHA!!! j/k!

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
Aug. 9, 2010, 2:44 p.m. CST

Aug. 9, 2010, 3:01 p.m. CST
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

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!
Aug. 9, 2010, 4:26 p.m. CST
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.

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!!

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.
