Before the winners are determined, Tony Pieper will propose to Blakely Shea on stage. Blakeley has already made her move to Portland, Ore. from North Carolina to start her life with Tony and his son, Taylor.
Michael Stagliano and Rachel Truehart will have a big fight over a girlfriend Michael had back in Chicago during the show. Rachel made the mistake of falling for him on “Bachelor Pad,” the feelings weren’t reciprocated.
Erica Rose calls out Kalon McMahon for badmouthing her to the media over her weight. She issues a warning to Lindzi Cox about her involvement with him — calling him a “womanizer.”
The final four “Bachelor Pad” contestants up for the big win are Chris Bukowski and Sarah Newlon and Nick Peterson and Rachel Truehart. Nick and Rachel win by a landslide. Nick and Rachel exit the stage where they contemplate what to do with their $250,000 win. If both of them choose “share,” they divide the money. If one of them chooses to “share” and the other chooses “keep,” the one who chose “keep” gets all the money. If they both pick “keep” then they each leave “Bachelor Pad” with nothing while the whole cast divides the money amongst them.
Nick chooses “keep” and Rachel chooses “share.” Nick leaves with $250,00 — meaning Rachel goes home empty-handed.
Nick doesn’t care how selfish his choice was. He never spun an elaborate story to only win $125,000 and make alliances on the show. He was out for himself and makes no apologies for it.
The “Bachelor Pad” 3 finale episode will air at 8 p.m, ET/PT on ABC Monday, September 10, 2012.
