Monday night on ABC’s Bachelor Pad, the competition turned into a couples game when three unsuspecting bachelorettes were unceremoniously sent packing. And in another competition straight out of junior high, the contestants played spin the bottle. Except this spin the bottle game could mean the difference between winning 25 grand or going home empty handed. So what happened on episode 5 of Bachelor Pad? And who was sent home this week?
It sucks to be a girl this week on Bachelor Pad. Because the girls outnumber the guys, three girls are sent packing because….well, just because. And if you didn’t hook up with any guys this season, you were outta luck because it was up to the guys to each “save” a girl this week.
Spinning the Bottle
Yep, it’s time for the boys to rule. Because the numbers of girls vs. boys need to be evened out, the boys get to choose a girl to team up with for the remainder of the season. And since most of the popular kids had already coupled up for random hookups, it was a case of nice girls finish last.
Kiptyn chooses Tenley as his partner, Kovacs picks Elizabeth, Jesse B. takes Peyton and Dave chooses Natalie. That means Ashley, Nikki and Gwen are sent home, with no chance to fight for their safety. Pretty weak if you ask me, but it’s clear that the producers are trying to shove the “romance” factor of this show down our throats.
With the four couples firmly established, we get to see a montage of their relationships, with plenty of making out. Yuck. Tenley is thrilled that she and Kip can be “out” as a couple now, and proclaims. “We are Kip-Ten.”
Water Balloon Toss
Next it’s time for the couples to compete in a good ol’ fashioned water balloon toss. The first couple to break three balloons is out. First to go is Peyton and Jesse, followed by Kiptyn and Tenley. In the showdown between Kovacs and Elizabeth and Dave and Nat, Elizabeth blows it and she and Kovacs lose.
Dave and Natalie win and receive safety roses and they get to enjoy a private date under the stars.
Debbie Downer Date
Kovacs and Elizabeth stumble upon a bright yellow Lamborghini out front and after it sinks in that the car is actually for Dave and Natalie’s date, they decide to break it in anyway. Ewww. Next is the equivalent of soft porn on ABC. Natalie poses like she’s the girl from the Whitesnake video, lying all over the car while Dave takes photos (but mostly of the car). Later they cozy up in the mansion that Jason and Molly fell in love in (but didn’t he originally fall in love with Melissa, the co-host of this show?) and what follows is a downer conversation about Dave’s sad childhood, his parents’ divorce and his estrangement from his dad.
Meanwhile back at the mansion, Kovacs and Elizabeth sneak off to the fantasy Suite for a night of passion and berating. Man is she on this dude!
The Rose Ceremony
It is revealed that one couple will be voted out, but everyone will still vote individually. This is huge, as it’s now 8 voters instead of 4.
With Dave and Nat safe, it’s down to Jesse B. and Peyton versus Kovacs and Elizabeth. For some reason everyone knows Kip and Tenley are safe. The couple with zero chemistry- Jesse B. and Peyton-are sent home.
Next week it’s the season finale of Bachelor Pad, complete with a dance contest that features pro dancers from ABC’s Dancing With the Stars and a guest judge spot by former Bachelor Jake Pavelka.
