Sad that out of the final four I ended up rooting for Kiptyn Locke and (HOW?) Natalie Getz to win “Bachelor Pad.”
But they were not paired together so they were not an option. Alas.
I can’t say I’m happy that Dave Good and Natalie Getz won. I love that they beat Kip-Ten but once Peyton Wright and Jesse Beck left there were no good options. The super six sucked.
I’m happy that Wes Hayden and Gia Allemand may now be a thing. (Check out their nightclub activity from last Friday.)
I’m even happier that Michelle Kujawa told off Tenley Molzahn. About time!
And I’m happy that Elizabeth Kitt went back to brunette — she looked good — but it didn’t help her get in touch with sanity.
Dave is a jerk and I have no idea why women love him. He’s Gaston from “Beauty and the Beast.”
Gwen, I’m glad you called him out. You should’ve won that money.
***Live blog/stream of consciousness recap***
The super six are congratulating themselves. I can’t stand them.
Dave talks about his pact with Kovacs to make the final two, but that’s not possible since it’s a couples game.
Natalie is falling hard for Dave but it was a mistake to vote out Peyton and Jesse.
Love how Kovacs gazes at Dave in the kitchen.
Chris H. calls them all into the living room.
The couple that wins the competition will guarantee them in the final 4.
Kiptyn’s eyes go wide about ballroom dancing. Tenley is a trained dancer.
Kiptyn isn’t a good dancer, he says.
Elizabeth doesn’t like to dance. Now she is “smitten by Kovacs.” What happened to love?
They take limos to meet their trainers. Elizabeth and Kovacs make out in the limo.
Natalie is glad that her gym class dance training will come in handy.
Kiptyn’s biggest fear is letting Tenley down. Aww.
Elizabeth is already stressing over whether they’ll get a male or female instructor.
Elizabeth: If it’s a woman you have to still focus on me because it might make me lose focus.
Tenley is a big fan of Chelsie Hightower.
Elizabeth is happy to see Edyta, she says.
Edyta will teach them the Rumba.
Kovacs: Edyta, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a girl in person with that great of a body. It’s incredible. Edyta is so hot it’s almost unbearable.
Tenley and Kiptyn will do the Foxtrot.
Dave and Natalie are doing the Cha-Cha-Cha.
Dave will do whatever it takes to win.
Dave: I’m twirling him, I’m dipping him and this is business to me. I’m not afraid to get in touch with my feminine side and dance with another guy.
Oh it’s like Edyta is teasing Kovacs.
Elizabeth: Edyta is extremely sexy. I get a little tinge of jealousy every time she puts her hands up on my man. The first time that Edyta straddled him and looked at him with those eyes, I felt very insecure actually.
Ha! You should.
Kovacs is spending way more time dancing with Edyta than him. Don’t worry. Dave is only dancing with Louis.
Kiptyn is frustrated. He’s not moving his feet right.
Don’t overanalyze it, Kip!
Natalie is overthinking it too.
Dave says they need to be passionate. He has great chemistry with Natalie, he says.
Louis: Do you guys have sex in the house?
He wants them to dance as if they have sex. That’s what Cha-Cha is.
Louis: Rumba is romantic. This is get to the point, let’s just get it over with.
That’s hilarious. I love Louis.
This is good for Dave and Natalie who are “sexual people.”
Louis does a doggie-style move too. Hello!
Natalie: Louis has told me so many times throughout these lifts and spins to throw my head back with a feeling. And you know Dave and I are definitely used to those positions.
Louis: In the history of me teaching as a pro I’ve never heard a woman ask ‘Please grab my boobs, it’s safer.’
Elizabeth is stressing that she’s not as sexy as Edyta.
Chelsie is giving good advice. Don’t show your mistakes because the judges won’t even notice them unless you point them out.
The sextestants are getting their styling done.
They walk outside and it’s just like Dancing with the Stars. Kiptyn has been in the audience a few times.
They will be judged by performance, chemistry and effort on a scale of 1 to 10.
Chris H. brings out three special judges.
Melissa Rycroft finished third on DWTS
Jake Pavelka comes back. He’s the last guy Tenley kissed before Kiptyn
Trista Sutter was on the first season of DWTS
Kip-Ten is first. Kip kissed her on the neck before the dance.
Tenley kept telling Kiptyn to smile. It’s very cutesy and energetic.
Melissa – 8, Jake – 9, Trista – 9
Kovacs and Elizabeth dance their Rumba. You can see Edyta’s mark on this, but it’s not as much of a crowd pleaser as the peppy Kip-Ten dance, so I think they have no shot.
The choreography is just not helping them.
Natalie: Watching Elizabeth and Kovacs dance was like watching Bambi on Ice. It was awful.
It was “uncomfortable and distracting” like a bad wreck.
Elizabeth is one of the worst dancers ever.
Ha! Jake says he can tell they are a couple. Trista said they had no problem in the chemistry department. Poor Kovacs is probably gritting his teeth.
They got kind comments from the judges, but 8s from all three. Kovacs said they blew it. He’s never one a challenge or a rose. Elizabeth feels like she let herself and Kovacs down.
They are out.
Dave and Natalie are last. They dance the Cha-Cha.
Dave looks good in his open shirt.
They both look stiff and stone-faced. Natalie has no hip rhythm. Tenley says they are “on fire”? Is she blind? They kept screwing up.
They impressed Melissa and Jake with the lifts. Trista says “hello sexiness.”
Dave and Natalie have to beat 26 points to beat Tenley and Kiptyn.
Trista gives them an 8, making Tenley and Kiptyn the winners.
Dave is frustrated. Something about the light at the end of the tunnel and bleeping down your leg.
Natalie is ticked at herself. They nailed it in the studio and failed in crunch time.
They couldn’t even finish the dance.
Oh no. Tenley and Kiptyn are bathing together. Gross.
Dave thinks he and Nat have a good chance to beat Kip-Ten, if they chose him.
Will Kip-Ten follow their heads or their hearts? Blah blah.
Dave says Natalie is the perfect partner for him. She’s beautiful and he’s falling in love.
Elizabeth thinks this show has helped bring them together.
The fairy tale may be over if they leave that night. Dear, there was no fairy tale.
Dave said if he and Nat lived in the same city things might be different. She’s in Hollywood. He’s in Dayton, Ohio. If they won they could move closer to each other. But would they?
Natalie and Tenley are good friends. Women code.
Kovacs is making his pitch to Kiptyn. It’s basically a “we suck so pick us” argument. How sad.
Tenley wants to keep Nat and Dave. Kiptyn wants to keep Elizabeth and Kovacs.
Kiptyn walks into the rose ceremony very conflicted. They are friends and they will feel the repercussions of the decision long after the show ends.
Tenley is already teary eyed. This isn’t about you, dear.
Kiptyn makes a speech about how much they liked each other, etc.
Tenley and I would like to extend the invitation….
To Dave and Natalie
So Elizabeth and Kovacs are finally gone.
Reality Steve’s spoilers were right so far…
Tenley said she and Natalie are close and Dave showed such loyalty.
Kiptyn hopes that Kovacs did find love with Elizabeth. RIGHT.
Elizabeth hopes the experience has genuinely changed Kovacs. What about you? You are the one who needs to change more.
Kovacs isn’t as angry as he thought he would be because he has an “awesome” relationship with Elizabeth.
He went on “The Bachelorette” hoping for a relationship and left with nothing. He went on “Bachelor Pad” hoping for money and he ended up with a relationship.
Nope. Not anymore, man.
The next time the final four see Chris H. will be in front of a live studio audience.
Oh no. Dave called it “the process.” I HATE when they do that.
Natalie wants to win the money so she and Dave can start their lives together.
Kiptyn and Tenley live sort of close to each other in SoCal.
They are leaving the mansion forever.
Not-so live finale (taped Wednesday) with all the former contestants.
Peyton, Jesse, Wes and Gia seem to get the biggest applause.
Melissa has a cute baby bump.
Elizabeth has dark hair again.
They are not together.
Elizabeth: He’s single, Anyone who wants to date a player, here you go. Good luck.
He led her to believe he had certain feelings about her but behind the scenes he was saying she had a screw loose.
To be fair, we were all saying that.
After the show they gave their relationship a shot for a quick minute, but that didn’t work out.
He wanted a casual relationship and she didn’t.
Chris H. asks about the Insiders vs. Outsiders.
He talks to Gia about how they screwed that up.
She says her decision to save Wes was not an emotional vote.
Gia still has an attraction to Wes!
She does not still have her boyfriend from before the show.
Wes just wanted to take the money and run like a robbery, but then he met Gia.
Wes: Bad boys need love too.
Where do they go from here?
There’s only one girl he wanted to kiss in the kissing contest but she pulled away. So he got his kiss!
Chris H.: If you should choose to forgo the studio, you can go straight to the fantasy suite.
Tenley gushes “Kiptyn’s my boyfriend.” Love Michelle’s face!
Dave and Natalie are taking it slow.
Chris wants to hear if the contestants believe that the relationships are real. Ashley was surprised because Dave was just with Jessie before the Vegas trip.
Dave said he and Natalie started as friends. Dave said they are not on the same level as Kip-Ten.
Krisily now says she knows Dave didn’t lie to her, but why didn’t he come to her first and tell her what was going to happen?
Dave said he didn’t want her to be upset. He didn’t see the point of going up to her with one minute left. She feels like it was a respect issue. I agree with her.
Chris H. brings up Kiptyn’s lie to Peyton that he was not in a relationship with Tenley.
Kiptyn is glad that he brought that up. Kip was being 100 percent honest that night. The next week Tenley won the Catalina date and that’s when things started. (So what was with the comment to the camera that he lied?)
Gia asks why he said he would never vote off Tenley. Kip said they were friends. Gia keeps challenging him, like about Nikki. Nikki saved Kiptyn and she did not keep her safe.
Gia was upset that Kip didn’t save Nikki.
Yes! Michelle talks about how what happened with Tenley will affect her decision.
She and Tenley were on the same season of The Bachelor. They seemed like they got along. She confronted Tenley because she was upset about the rumor about Craig.
Michelle: I was pissed. I was livid, Tenley, that you — bubbly, smiling all the time — would make up a rumor and not even come up to me first but spread it through the entire house. I lost respect for you. I didn’t care for you and to this day I still don’t care for you. I’ll tell you right now, you don’t have my vote.
Tenley said she is sorry. The audience loves Tenley, no matter what she does.
Wes questions everybody’s integrity. Money talks. He feels hurt that Dave told Krisily that Wes was running behind people’s backs.
Aww! Wes on Gia: I mean hell I got a million dollars right here, I don’t need $250,000.
He is such a player.
Natalie talks about the fun she had on the show. She wants to pay off her debt and start a small charity for prostate cancer because her father survived it. She talks so fast.
Dave feels like he played the game as honest and fair as she could.
God Jesse Beck looks hot. But Dave said he looked Jesse in the eyes and told him he would vote him out. It was honest.
He hopes he and Nat brought some comic relief to the show. (VOMIT!)
Gwen said she overheard a conversation he had with some people in the house. Dave said anybody in their 30s is a loser to be in the house? He is SUCH an ass.
Dave said if you’re in “your upper 30s” then being on a dating show is getting a little older. As a personal preference it’s not something he would do.
Gwen didn’t go on the show for a relationship, she came for the money. SUCK IT, DAVE.
Tenley makes a pageant speech. She tried to play as true to her character as she could. Sadly, I think she did.
She lost her home? She disses her marriage again. Her ex is never going to live that down. She wants to pay her parents back.
Kiptyn is planning to give 20% of the money to charity, so that’s $50,000 off the top. He wants to take vacations and do “selfish” things, but he also wants to give back.
Juan said Kiptyn played with integrity and Dave and Natalie were strong, but what did Tenley do?
Jessie defended Tenley, saying she was strong and she won the pie-eating contest. Blah. Blah. Blah.
The life-changing vote is up!
Everyone has paddles under their seats. First couple to 8 votes wins.
Craig’s vote: Kiptyn and Tenley
Jonathan/Weatherman: Kiptyn and Tenley
Jessie: Dave and Natalie
Krisily: Dave and Natalie
Peyton: Dave and Natalie
Jesse B.: Dave and Natalie
Juan: Kiptyn and Tenley
Gwen: Kiptyn and Tenley
Ashley: Dave and Natalie
Michelle: Dave and Natalie
Nikki: Dave and Natalie
Wes: Dave and Natalie
Wes is a good guy for getting past his ego to make that vote. I doubt Dave would have been as mature about it.
I love Wes. I do. Not the way Gia loves him, but I’ve always liked him.
Dave and Natalie’s relationship will be put to the test. They have to go to separate deliberation rooms.
If they want to split the money they pick share. If they want to keep the money they pick keep.
The twist is, if they both pick share they will split the money evenly: $125,000 each. If one chooses share and the other chooses keep, the other will get all the money.
If they both pick keep then neither gets the money. The money will be split between the former housemates. (Juan and Jonathan hug each other. They love this idea!)
How much do they trust each other?
The best answer is “share” at this point. It doesn’t take a strong relationship to make that decision. You could do this with strangers and come to that decision.
Kovacs believes Dave will pick share. Gia believes it would be selfish if they don’t pick share.
Nikki believes Natalie puts Natalie first and she could go either way. She says that as a friend! Krisily thinks Natalie could pick “keep” too.
Kovacs doesn’t think it should ruin a friendship if one keeps the money. True! That’s what happens on “Survivor” and this show was supposed to have one winner, not two.
Dave reveals first: He picks share.
Natalie wants to say something. Chris says no, at first.
Natalie: I think that we all said get your friends as far as you can get your friends and the only time to be selfish is when you get your friends as far you can get them.
Everyone thinks she’s going to pick “keep” but then she turns her card around to reveal “so I’m gonna share with ya!”
They hug and Dave bounces around. Did he kiss Chris Harrison?
Then, inexplicably, Wes plays “Love Don’t Come Easy” AGAIN!
