Shock!  Bachelor Bad 2 contestants Jackie Gordon and Ames Brown have already parted ways, according to People.  On Monday’s episode, Brown romantically chose love over money (a chance at winning $250,000) and left the competition to be with Jackie when she was eliminated.  However, when reporters caught up with the duo, it has come to light that they onlylasted a few weeks after the elimination.  Brown told reporters, “Um, well, we had a great time on the show and chose love over money in the competition.  We are not still dating, but we enjoyed every moment we had together.  After a little while, we split up.  Nothing too exotic about it.  We just maybe weren’t the ideal match.”

What are some ways to tell early on that a relationship will last?

Earlier this week on Bachelor Pad 2, we saw the rules of the game change (the theme of the rose ceremony was “ladies night”), Gia voluntarily say goodbye to her chance to find love and money and Ames and Jackie take off together in the happiest limo ride in Bachelor franchise history. In case you missed the episode, check out our exclusive recap.  As always, following the episode we checked in with Season 1 winners David Good and Natalie Getz to get their take on the drama!

We saw a new side to Blake in this episode (kissing Melissa even though he claimed not to have feelings with her, cozying up to Holly, etc.).  What’s your take on Blake — is what he’s doing a good or bad tactic for winning?

Usually when a former Bachelor or Bachelorette leaves the show voluntarily, like two-time ‘Bachelor Pad’ contestant and swimsuit model, Gia Allemand did last night, it becomes the episode news headliner the next day.  But last night’s storybook ending even knocked out coverage of the attention-seeking love triangle usually reserved for Jake Pavelka, Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl.  It was a scene that leaves us understanding why even bad reality shows are beating out long-standing soap operas.  You can’t make this stuff up!

Last night there were two scenes that made single women everywhere believe in love again.  First was the closing scene with Ivy-League, world-traveling, portfolio manager, Ames Brown.  After he said a heartfelt good-bye to his newfound love and eliminated housemate, Jackie Gordon he turned around to head back towards the house.  What happened next made hearts stop everywhere.  Instead of continuing his walk toward the contestants, Ames slowly stopped, raised his hand and waved good-bye to them.  Giving up the $250,000 prize, he sprinted back towards the limousine with Jackie inside.  That fairy-tale exit trumped everything else on the show and gives romance fanatics a reason to believe that Mr. Right is a possibility, especially if you go after the awkwardly smart, rich guy wearing the hot pink pants. In Ames’ own words, “This is the happiest limo ride in Bachelor history.”

The new season of Bachelor Pad recently premiered, and just as new reality stars are moving in for the cameras, reality TV stars Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl are looking for a pad to call their own.  According to People, the love birds are looking for a nest somewhere in Los Angeles. Girardi said, “We are looking at apartments and will take the next step in our relationship.”  Sounds like love is truly in the air for these two, who started dating several months ago and have been going strong ever since.

What are some ways to tell it’s time to move in together?

Broken engagements, boyfriend stealing and love triangles galore.  Welcome to this summer’s most anticipated show, Bachelor Pad 2.  ABC pulled out all the stops when collecting the current list of castoffs from seasons past.  We watched like animals in heat tonight, glued to the television witnessing one of the most talked about and controversial casts this summer.  Is it a coincidence that all the references noted above point back to one person: Vienna Girardi?  Hmmm, it leaves us wondering if the show would even be worth the three hours it premiered if it wasn’t for her and Jake Pavelka’s drama-induced past.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Vienna and Jake, it’s safe to say that they’ll probably go down in The Bachelor history as the most remembered (not in a good way) contestants.  She won the love and proposal of Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, Season 14 and broke his heart when she sold their break-up story for $90,000, according to reports.  Then, they trashed one another on Primetime television when the relationship ended, and it was so brutal that Vienna stormed out of the interview.  They haven’t talked since that fight took place a year ago.  Now, they’re both back in the house, under the same roof, competing for the $250,000 grand prize.

Elizabeth Kitt seems to be unlucky in love, to say the least.  After being dumped by Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor and splitting from ladies’ man Jesse Kovacs after dating him on Bachelor Pad, it looks like Kitt has found another winner.  Her current squeeze, Joshua Rowley, has been spotted on Cheaterville.com, where he is listed under the headline, “Cheater is looking for easy girls online”.  Rowley denied the accusations of infidelity, telling RadarOnline, “This is hilarious.  I was only on-line dating for a week before I met Elizabeth, then I logged off.  To whomever the woman is who posted this, thanks, it is a good picture.  Elizabeth and I had a good laugh over this!”

If you want to know the key ingredient to winning (no Sheen pun intended), look no further than last summer’s Bachelor Pad winners: Natalie Getz and David Good.

Even though these two former contestants didn’t strike a love match on their respective Bachelor-franchise seasons, this dynamic duo made their mark as the first couple to win the ABC spin-off reality show, Bachelor Pad, where 19 past contestants competed for a grand prize of $250,000.

Throughout the show’s run, this couple focused on making their way to the finish line.  If there’s anything we can learn from watching Getz and Good, it’s that three important traits are needed to keep any relationship moving forward: loyalty, trust and friendship, which they exemplified.  While most romantic couples aren’t competing for anything but each other’s hearts, these elements can have you and your partner come out winning too – whether it’s for love, marriage or happiness.

Cupid had the opportunity to speak with Natalie and David about love, dating and how their lives have changed since Bachelor Pad ended.  Read on to see what they had to say:

America fell in love with Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke when they each competed on The Bachelor (season 14) and The Bachelorette (Season 5).  Their mission?  To find a love of their own.  However, it wasn’t meant to be at the time, and both ended up runner-ups on their respective seasons, forced to jump back into the dating pool.

Fast forward to last August as they took another chance at love on The Bachelor spin-off, Bachelor Pad, where 19 unforgettable contestants from past seasons lived together under one roof to compete for a grand prize of $250,000.

Despite losing the competition, Tenley and Kiptyn embraced their stint on the show and literally danced their way to the final four, finding themselves moving in a “Locke” step towards a true relationship – with each other.

Even before their appearance on Bachelor Pad, the two developed a solid friendship based on their tremendous respect for one another.  They were there for each other during their days of public heartbreak, and that support set the stage for what ultimately came to be.

Cupid’s Pulse had the wonderful opportunity of exclusively interviewing Tenley and Kiptyn, and asked them a handful of questions based on their dating experience on and off the show. The key lessons they learned in their quest to find love are here for Cupid’s Pulse readers to embrace and take to heart:

Elizabeth Kitt and Jesse Kovacs are no strangers to finding love on reality television, as they both competed on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette series respectively – Elizabeth on season 14 with Jake Pavelka and Jesse on season 5 with Jillian Harris.  The two seemed to find love as they cozied up with one another during last summer’s reality hit spin-off series Bachelor Pad, but like the majority of The Bachelor franchise unions, their relationship didn’t last after the cameras stopped rolling.

Oftentimes, lack of communication in a relationship can lead partners down two totally different paths: Kovacs wanted something more casual while Kitt wanted to fall in love.  Nevertheless, the couple’s strong bond and competitive spirit led them into the final six, just a few steps away from winning the big pot of cash.

With another season of Bachelor Pad coming this summer, we asked Elizabeth and Jesse for their insight on dating, relationships and finding love on reality TV:

ABC’s Bachelor Pad Winner David Good Gives Dating Advice to Women in his New Book ‘The Man Code’

Cupid's Pulse Article: ABC’s Bachelor Pad Winner David Good Gives Dating Advice to Women in his New Book ‘The Man Code’


“Women have the power to control how men treat them,
how we act and how we are in society.”

By Lori Bizzoco

David Good got a bad rap when he appeared on The Bachelorette: Season 5 (Jillian Harris’ Season) in 2009.  Most infamous for his altercation with former contestant Juan Barbieri and the negative way he used the phrase ‘Man Code’, Good had the opportunity to redeem himself earlier this year on the all-star, spin-off competition Bachelor Pad.  Not only did Good surface from the show as the house favorite (and leader), he won the grand prize of $250,000 with partner Natalie Getz.  Now, the 29-year-old first-time author is using a portion of his winnings to set the record straight about the true meaning of “Man Code” in his new book, The Man Code: A Woman’s Guide to Cracking the Tough Guy.

Good gave Cupid a view of his softer side, while opening up about his country boy roots in West Alexandria, Ohio, and the importance of bringing back more of what he calls the “John Wayne” types.   Of course the interview wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t ask about his relationship status, too.  So, here’s what he had to say:
