Bachelor Pad was packed full of drama. The first hour begins with the remaining four couples, Vienna and Kasey, Holly and Michael, Michelle and Graham, and Kirk and Ella. The contestants go to Vegas where they are given 24 hours to master a Cirque du Soleil routine. The couple that the judges feel perform the worst will be the first couple sent home.
The judges are the first ever Bachelorette, Trista, former Bachelor Jason, and former Bachelorette Alli.
After watching the couples perform the judges choose Holly and Michael as the winners and choose to send Kirk and Ella home. In what was undoubtedly the saddest departure of the season, Ella leaves in tears and says she feels like she let Kirk down.
As the winners, Michael and Holly are given roses and guaranteed a spot in the final 4. They also have the advantage of choosing the couple they want to take to the finals with them. Michael and Holly begin discussing who they will take to the final with them.
Kasey and Vienna try to plead their case by admitting that they probably won’t win in the final vote.
Graham and Michelle are shocked when Michael and Holly admit they are considering taking Kasey and Vienna to the final. Graham is hurt that Michael is putting money over their friendship. He goes from quiet nice guy to belligerently angry in a matter of minutes.
The rose ceremony arrives and Michael and Holly give a long-winded speech about selfishness and selflessness before choosing to take to Graham and Michelle to the finals with them.
Vienna and Kasey’s time is finally up. And what is Vienna most upset about? Naturally,
her “perfect rose record” being ruined.
Finally we are reunited with the eliminated contestants for the finale. Of course, first there are updates and revelations to address first.
After one of the most romantic departures ever, Ames and Jackie reveal that their fairytale romance only lasted a short time after the show. Jackie tearfully confesses that she was broken hearted in bed for a week after the breakup.
Vienna and Jake sit next to each other and try to act like they never had an ounce of drama between them. Then Jake gets in the hot seat and we are forced to listen to the same old story one more time. Will this ever end? Kasey apologizes for saying that he wants to punch Jake “for America” and Vienna gives him a look that could kill.
Kasey is the next to take the hot seat and Chris Harrison shows clips of he and Vienna fighting all season. Kasey gets emotional and says he wasn’t himself on the
show and that watching the couple in those clips is not a relationship he wants. Then he cries and says he doesn’t want to be walked on but they are seemingly still together.
“Blake the Snake” is called to the hot seat and reflects on his experiences on Bachelor Pad, especially his relationship with Holly and drama with Melissa. Blake denies that he used Melissa, but admits that he shouldn’t have kissed her. Blake then reveals that he is now madly in love with Holly and that they are in a very serious relationship. Then footage is aired of Blake proposing to Holly. This happened on a picnic that they apparently had recently with the camera crew.
The final 4 contestants are brought out and Chris Harrison puts Holly right on the spot and makes her tell Michael that she and Blake are engaged. Michael is obviously shocked, upset, and flustered as he rambles about how happy he is for Holly.
Graham and Michelle reveal that they are still together and that Graham has been there for her as she recently dealt with losing her father to colon cancer. Michelle raves about what an amazing man Graham is and says she is not letting him go.
As the contestants deliberate before voting they get the chance to ask questions of the final 4. Michelle pleas for the contestants to not give her the pity vote and says they are no more deserving of the money than Michael and Holly.
The contestants vote for the couple that will move on to the next round and in a close vote, Holly and Michael win.
Now it is between Michael and Holly. The two are divided into separate deliberation rooms where they have to decide if they want to split or keep the money. If they both choose share they get to split it. If one chooses share and the other chooses keep, the one who chooses keep gets the money. If they both choose keep, the money will be divided among the other 14 contestants.
The contestants try to guess what Michael and Holly will choose. Some suggest that Michael may opt to keep the money after Holly broke his heart. Others figure he will stay true to his character and they will end up sharing the money.
Finally, it is the moment of truth and Holly reveals her decision to share the money. Michael, predictably chooses to share the money.
The show ends with the announcement that Ben, from Ashley’s Bachelorette, will be the next Bachelor.
