There have been recent claims that Bachelor Pad 2 has been “fixed” in order to give certain contestants an edge, namely Jake Pavelka. But he has been eliminated now, so what do you make of these claims, looking back? Did Jake Pavelka get some unfair insider help to prolong his time on Bachelor Pad 2?
The pilot, Jake Pavelka, always claimed he was on Bachelor Pad 2 to talk to his former fiancé Vienna Girardi. Their relationship ended badly and he maintained he wanted time to talk to her properly and sort out their problems, even though she was on the show with her new partner, Kasey Kahl.
However, an insider has refuted that, saying all Jake Pavelka wanted to do was make a bit of money and to make himself look better.
“I don’t believe he was there to apologize. He was there to put a Band-Aid on his image and make a buck at Vienna’s expense,” the insider said.
OK, so we have anticipated that motivation. But among the further claims are that Jake was paid $20,000 for four episodes (which would not be that shocking, since he is the most famous person on the show).
But what about allegation that the producers of Bachelor Pad 2 helped to engineer events in the show in order to keep him in Bachelor Pad 2 for as long as possible?
Of course the producers did just that! The show obviously wants Jake Pavelka around as long as possible, even though they must have known he wouldn’t win.
Remember the twist in the second episode when two girls were eliminated?
But are the claims of the producers fixing Bachelor Pad 2 in order to favor Jake Pavelka a big deal? The producers make the show and they call the shots. So are these “fixing” claims a whole lot of jealousy directed at Jake Pavelka?
