Official 'Bachelor Pad' cast revealed -- EXCLUSIVE

Jake-Pavelka

After weeks of rumors and breathless speculation, lovers of ABC’s lowbrow (but highly satisfying) Bachelor Pad are finally going to learn who’s on board for season two (premiering August 8). ABC has released the official list exclusively to EW.com – and while some fan favorites rumored to be joining (Madison the vampire, Tanner the foot fetishist) did not make the final cut, there will be plenty of entertainingly desperate fame-seekers (see: Jake Pavelka) in reality TV’s raunchiest funhouse, including three “Mystery Men” from the current season of The Bachelorette. Click through for the full release, and check back later this week for exclusive photos of the cast.

JAKE PAVELKA AND VIENNA GIRARDI REUNITE

FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THEIR PRIMETIME SHOWDOWN

ON SEASON TWO OF ABC’S HOT SUMMER SERIES, “BACHELOR PAD,”

PREMIERING MONDAY, AUGUST 8

 

Eighteen Former Participants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” Come Together Under One Roof Competing for Half A Million Dollars and a Second Chance at Love

 

Hosted by Chris Harrison (“The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette”), “Bachelor Pad” returns MONDAY, AUGUST 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) with its most controversial cast to date as 18 unforgettable characters from the “Bachelor” franchise – those we love and those we love to hate – gather back at the mansion to live together and compete for $250,000 and possibly a second chance at love. The infamous wrestler, Justin “Rated R” Rego, Gia Allemand, who’s fresh from a breakup with Wes, and Kasey Kahl, who once professed his love for former Bachelorette Ali by getting a tattoo on his wrist are just some of  “Bachelor’s” best joining Jake Pavelka, a former Bachelor, and his jilted ex-fiancé, Vienna Girardi. With so many elements at play to raise the stakes — Vienna and Kasey are currently dating, there is recent bad blood between Gia and Vienna, a friendship has developed between Jake and Gia, and so much more – season two is set to bring fireworks, drama, romance and endless possibilities.

Each week the contestants will square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of each challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose. At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves – the men will vote off a woman and vice versa – to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition.

The 18 contestants set to lay it all on the line for love and/or money are:

The Women

After falling for Wes (Jillian’s season) on last season’s “Bachelor Pad,” Gia returns to the pad to face Vienna who’s rumored to have come between her and Wes. She’ll be thankful to have an ally in Jake whom she’s formed a friendship with.

    This is going to be a frickin’ train wreck.

    And why is Gia on this again? Didn’t she make a big enough fool of herself last time around?

    The first time around it was entertaining, but I think I’m sitting this season out.

    • dartwoman63

      But like any wreck you just can’t help yourself.

    • Sunknee

      Here comes Season 2 of ‘Wannabes and STDs!’ Gia will be on every season to follow, because she is a lifelong loser. Just listen … she’ll tell you.

      • Nancy

        I think Gia keeps tripping over her top lip and messing up in her life….just saying

      • SASSY

        Sunknee, that line of “Wannabes and STDs” is absolutly priceless. Don’t-won’t watch it, but agree with you. It made my nighty. Thanks!!!!!!!

      • TJ

        They dispense Valtrex like Tic Tac’s on this show.

      • Brooke

        Who wants to bet that the 3 Mystery Men from Ashley’s season will be Bentley, Jeff aka The Lone Ranger, and the drunkard that got sent home the very first night…funny how I can’t remember his name.

      • kk

        Gia used to come in the plastic surgeons office where I used to work in NYC. …..for her lips.

    • jjsgirl0676

      LOL Yep I don’t like Gia.

    • Lina

      Gia ick! I hope Bentley is not on the show-if he is I definitely wont be watching!!!!!

      • Nadia

        Please, of course Bentley’s on this. He’s a jerk, and how jerks like him bring ratings…

    • Megs

      Gia’s 15 min’s were up a long time ago!! So tired of seeing her face!!!! Booooooooo! She not even that entertaining :S

    • andre

      oh god i thought i was the only way that tired of her with her annoying ass laugh and her annoying voice and i ask the same question she made in ass out of herself

    • Christina

      I hope Gia falls for Bentley…she is such a whiny loser, and she has the worst taste in men!

    • Gia

      Are you stupid? Gia was the best, she was cute and well respected… and the prettiest. Gia rocks and I am so happy she is coming back.

      • Hadles

        Eww! I hate Gia! She is so messed up and is just coming back to make an even bigger fool out of herself. And whats with her and Jake? Gross

      • Anastasia

        I love Gia…she’s sweet. Too bad Wes didn’t stay with her. He lost out.

  • Her name was Lola

    I think they should stop using the phrase “the pad”. All that pops into my head when I read that are feminine hygiene prodcuts.

    • whatevs

      Ironic that hygiene is what comes to mind.

    • RK

      “but the men won’t mind sharing the pad with her.”

      • Judy

        LOL!!!

  • Leslie

    God help me if I’m desperate enough to tune into this train wreck again this summer!

    • Gilbert

      See you in Hell!

  • KimberlyLx2

    If Bentley is one of the mystery men, I wont watch!

    • wakeforce

      I will be. Guaranteed!

      • MonaLisa

        I will watch too if he is on! There would be so much drama

    • tennisfan

      I completely disagree with the handling of Bently on Ashley’s Bachelorette (I’d like to seem them try harder to get interesting characters, but not frauds, at least make an attempt for a real relationship to happen). But the Bachelor Pad is made for the crazies/frauds — bring him on!

    • Sunknee

      Let’s face it. All men are a little … Bentley.

    • Lucy

      He’ll be on..just watch

    • Caren

      You know he will be and him and Michelle will be getting into it, and have plenty of fights!

      • Kathy

        Bentley and Michelle…. that will be a MATCH … and I mean like in a RING with spectators! I can not even imagine the 2 in the same world, much less in a group setting for the sake of finding “the right one”!

    • Lorna

      I totally agree with you . NO BENTLEY !!!!

  • nana

    they are all useless, unproductive souls to the country. get your ass better jobs.

  • dmac2498

    Any chance they set the ‘Bachelor Pad’ on fire once they are all in? Now that would be good TV. Hell you can toss a few Real Housewives in there to keep the blaze going….

    • lerxt

      You can’t burn those Housewives, it would be an environmental catastrophe akin to the BP Oil disaster!!!!

      • naname

        yea with all that silicone melting it would be an environmental hazard!!

    • Courtney

      omy…@dmac2498 thats hiliarous!

  • lgmeli

    I think my tv might self-destruct if I watch anything with Jake on it!!!

    • Airhead

      I’m more concerned about my TV catching VD from this show.

    • Tizzylish

      Agree. Jake wants tv coverage. Yuk.

  • mamey

    Gia is a disgrace !!!! going there with a boyfriend again.

  • ugh

    no thanks…..they should jsut make these people stay i nthat house for the rest of their lives with no food. much more exciting.

  • ugh

    in that*

  • wowed

    I’m betting the three will include at least one of: the drunkard, the masked man, or the a$$, Bentley. Maybe all three.

    • AprilDawn

      I agree, i was just thinking that.

    • Caren

      Will he reapply that mask to get the women INTERESTED in just him as a person?!?

    • Jelly

      Not the masked man. Even with the mask he was boring!

  • etm

    Wow, not a very good looking cast.

    • Mary

      It seems like this case is all the losers!

      • Suzi

        Mary..do you know these people and their life outside the Bachelor Shows? Graham Bunn is one of the most generous people ever.So is Kasey. These two spend their life helping those that need help. Kirk is a fabulous human being. I agree that Jake and Rego are both looking for fame. I don’t know much about the women. It certainly is unfair to call all of these people loosers. There aren’t enough nice things that I can say about Graham Bunn. He is one very special man. Also, loosers don’t have jobs. Many of these people have outstanding jobs.

      • Jen

        Suzi what are you, some sort of Bachelor groupie? I’m not being mean, seriously, how do you know them?

  • Lucee

    Love the “reality” shows, in general, even though admittedly they all are probably on some spectrum of “low-brow.” But this one has to be the lowest of the low. Yuck! Can’t watch! And Gia needs to get a job and work for a living.

    • Nadia

      Obviously you never saw “Flavor of Love” or “Rock of Love.”

  • Cher P

    I think they should have another “Average Joe” instead.

    • bob

      I think they should put this dumb down Crap on Youtube where it belongs. If you desperate idiots would stop suppoprting this TRASH GARBBAGE SH*T maybe we could get some real drama back on T.V.

  • Mellissa

    Jake really need to stop appearing on reality television. Not only does it not help his “acting career,” but with every appearance, he proves what a joke he actually is.

    • Lucee

      He’s an Ick!

      • MonaLisa

        I hate him! hes a jerk

    • janel

      Jake reminds me of Tom Cruise. Too happy, too smug, and too gay for words.

      • Hollister58

        Janel,
        You rock! ITA!

    • Chris

      I can’t believe how fake Jake is….he is trying way to hard to make a come back after the disaster with Vienna…fake,fake,fake,fake…I really can’t stand him

      • alicia

        are you kidding me. Man i can’t believe you people don’t see how Vienna is so fake. She even as you wrapped around her finger. Poor Jake
