Is it worth targeting a woman’s insecurities on “Bachelor Pad” to win $250,000? On last night’s episode one of of the hardest challenges faced the contestants. It was excruciating for both the men and women on “Bachelor Pad’ to take on, but it was a test of honesty. Whomever won the challenge, earned the “safe from elimination” rose.
Safe from Elimination, but Not Humiliation
Once the questionnaires were tabulated, “Bachelor Pad” host, Chris Harrison had the answers to each question. When it came time for the men and women to answer questions openly about who they voted for secretly in the questionnaire, it got brutal.
The most insulting of questions that sparked insecurity were who has the worst boob job and who would always be a bridesmaid, but never the bride. Three questions went too far and really hurt the “Bachelor Pad” women.
Natalie was picked by the men to always be a bridesmaid, but never a bride. She was surprised by the vote and and cried later on. Gwen comforted her, telling her it’s not any easier knowing it’s just a competition. Natalie said her dream is to be a good wife to the right man and have children, so the vote stung her and realized she may have carved that image out for herself.
Worst Boob Job – Ouch
Elizabeth was voted as having the worst boob job. She put on a strong front when Chris Harrison read the results that the men voted, but later was obviously hurt. Imagine what her plastic surgeon thinks!
Then the question of who’s the dumbest. Natalie even voted herself in on that question with a big smile on her face. Gwen was the one voted most dumb and that stunned her. She said to actually have the majority feel that way about her was painful. Good reason.
It’s a Game for $250,000, but “Bachelor Pad” May Go too Far
Any competition on “Bachelor Pad” or any other production by Mike Fleiss will bring out a woman’s insecurities in a number of ways. Even the men in this challenge felt terrible answering the questions. Several of them spoke up and said it really bothered them to see the female contestants be so affected because they understand how sensitive women are about the types of questions they were put in a position to answer.
We know it’s a reality show, but really? When it comes insecurities, why target them on such a brutal level? Ratings is one thing, but to go all out and see how many insults one can take is hard for viewers to watch.
