Although America is still waiting to see whether Emily Maynard will pick Arie Luyendyk Jr. or Jef Holm to be the winner of the hit TV show The Bachelorette, season 3 of Bachelor Pad is right around the corner.
The show debuted on ABC in August 2010 and features contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette who compete for a final cash prize of $250,000. The show stars 11 women and 8 men eliminated from various past seasons and represents a "second chance at finding love" for the former Bachelors and Bachelorettes. The participants all live in a mansion together, go on dates with contestants, participate in challenges, and choose other contestants to eliminate.
This marks the third season that the show will be on television. In Season 1, Natalie and Dave won the final vote over Kiptyn and Tenley. Natalie and Dave each chose to share the $250,000. Natalie promised to spend the money on repaying student loans and giving vacations to her parents.
Starting this Monday, the show will feature not only ex-contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but also super fans of the show, a brand new element. Just recently, the cast of this season’s show was revealed.
