This isn’t your typical The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. It’s a new show called Bachelor Pad.
Some of your favorite castoffs from the hit ABC reality TV show are starring in the new “competitive reality show,” and the winner of The Bachelorette Season 4 Jesse Csincsak says expect some hook-ups.
The show includes swimsuit model Gia and divorcee Tenley, who made the top three in last season’s The Bachelor with hunky pilot Jake Pavelka. And three of the biggest jerks on the franchise have been asked to be a part of this show: Craig M, a dental salesman eliminated from this season’s of The Bachelorette, Wes, who wrote a song for Jillian Harris in Season 5 when he had girlfriend and David Good, who was really bad during Jillian’s season. It also stars Jonathan the weatherman from the current season of The Bachelorette.
Six of the girls are from Jason Mesnick‘s seasons of The Bachelor. In all there are 11 women and 8 men.
On Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show Wednesday, host Chris Harrison said “We put them in one house-sleeping in one room.”
He goes on to say, “I didn’t even have to do that in my dorm.”
At stake is $250,000 and maybe a second chance at finding love.
Jesse, who hosts castaway parties featuring the reality stars, says “I know what happens when you get boys and girls together.”
And he’s quick to point out “They shouldn’t have called the Bachelor Pad they should call it ‘Pound Town.’”
Even Chris Harrison alludes to sexcapdes saying “You get this many hot guys and hot girls in one house and things happen.”
That begs the question-what about Gia Allemand, who was part of Jake Pavelka’s final three, but is now dating NHL star Chris Campoli.
“Nothing has changed in regard to Chris Campoli and Gia, they are still very happy together,” says Gia’s publicist Penelope Jean.
Jesse, who is a good friend of Gia’s, agrees, “I don’t think you’re gonna see her hooking up with anybody. She’s super-pumped to be with her boyfriend.”
Jesse knows the formula well, he says “They’re gonna go out on night-pump everyone with booze and then force them to compete the next morning.”
An insider told RadarOnline.com “If this show works then they are going to a follow up series featuring the popular past Bachelors and Bachelorettes.”
Jesse says, “The first show might a bit of a train wreck and controlled by the rules of the game.”
The show airs on ABC beginning August 9.
