Bachelor Pad 3: A Bad Twist Is Almost At Its End! Here's The Rankings Rankings By RTVC Senior Staff Writer Joseph Braverman July 25, 2012
The Bachelor Pad 3 premiere is behind us, and upon reflection I can estimate this season will be better than Season 1 but a little less entertaining than the glorious second season.
Why, you ask?
Well, the cast this season brings together a lot of familiar faces and some genuine gamers, but by and large the premiere set a tone of trashy instead of strategically riveting.
Am I holding Bachelor Pad to too high a standard?
Maybe, but when you have players like Michelle and Graham last year creating a sound strategy to win a “Newlywed” challenge, it’s hard not to wonder whether we may see more brainy tactics going forward as opposed to slutty antics.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Not so, ladies and gentlemen, not so.
However, I will say that the most idiotic group was, of course, the “super” fans.
This didn’t surprise me – they were so star struck by the fans that all they wanted to do was talk to them, even if it meant laying out a plan to vote out that exact Bachelor/Bachelorette alum they were speaking to.
Oh David, you really made a true blunder by telling Erica that you were voting her out and the house was backing you up.
I don’t believe for a second that the house wasn’t already split between the fans and the alumni, but David’s costly honest remarks made it that much easier – and justifiable – for the alumni to begin picking off the fans.
What does everything think of the fan twist?
I admit, it does raise the paranoia in the house a bit.
As much as I love Erica Rose as a player and an entertaining presence, it was hard not to be on the edge of your seat in those last moments, wondering whether Erica would truly get bitten in the ass by friend Ryan and frenemy Kalon.
The suspense of that moment – thank you, Reid – was one of the highlights of the premiere, and I hope we have many more moments like these throughout the season.
As for the twist itself, I believe even the producers felt it was probably a bad idea as soon as they saw David and The Twins win the first immunity challenge.
Did you all notice how David and The Twins weren’t given the option of handing out roses to save anyone?
