'Bachelor Pad' season premiere: 'Ed! Pull it together! Pull it together!'
Talk about whiplash, rose lovers. We went from Emily and One F’s romantic engagement last night to a morally bankrupt Bacchanalia led by a “technology consultant” named Ed who seems hell-bent on drinking himself into a permanent blackout while competing against 19 other reality TV rejects who will scheme against and/or sleep with anyone in their quest to win a $250,000 prize. God, I missed Bachelor Pad! While I’m in no way happy about the “super fans” twist — if I wanted to watch a bunch of randoms live in a house and hook up with each other in between physical challenges, I’d watch Big Brother (which I already do) — I will say the resulting “us vs. them” dynamic could be very entertaining. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click to read Kristen’s full Bachelor Pad season premiere recap and Chris Harrison’s behind-the-scenes blog), but in the meantime please share your thoughts about night one in the Pad. Does Ed need an intervention? Could Stagliano take home another win? Does anyone remember Sarah? Post your thoughts now!
