Fans know Holly Durst as the bubbly winner of ‘Bachelor Pad 2,’ but now, she’s content just being a newlywed. Durst and Blake Julian, who met while competing on the reality show, tied the knot in South Carolina on June 2, 2012. The big day was perfect and more than she ever imagined. “I’m so happy! I love married life. It’s just the best,” she gushes.

Durst says her best piece of advice for brides-to-be is to hire a wedding planner. She adds, “I planned my whole wedding on Pinterest. I wanted to make sure that I remembered all of the little things.” …Don’t miss the rest! Click here for more.

This dramatic season of Bachelor Pad 2 has finally come to an end. In this week’s episode, the contenders performed with Cirque de Soleil’s Ka, Blake proposed to Holly, the winners were declared and the next Bachelor was announced. We had a chance to chat with our Bachelor Pad 2 experts, David Good and Natalie Getz, to see what their thoughts were about the season finale.

Kasey and Vienna did quite well in the final challenge, but ultimately didn’t get a chance to compete for the final prize. What are your closing thoughts on how they chose to play the game? Do you think they will remain together long-term?

He said: I think they played the game great! People can dislike them as a couple but they still controlled the whole show till the end. As far as a couple, I wish them the best but I don’t see it working out from what we got to see of them on TV.

Michael Stagliano, 27, may have won The Bachelor Pad, but he ultimately lost ex-fiance Holly Durst, 28, to fellow contestant Blake Julian.  Durst’s engagement to Julian was revealed to Stagliano on the show’s finale.  Putting that shocking news aside, our jars also dropped when we read the jilted bachelor’s statement to People, which read, “We were engaged and therefore I will always care about and love her so it makes me happy when she is happy.”  Way to take it like a man, Michael.

As Labor Day weekend wrapped up, we were all treated to a suspense-filled episode of Bachelor Pad 2!  During the episode, viewers witnessed a strategic challenge, romantic fireworks between Michelle and Graham, Erica’s over-the-top overtures towards Blake, and a final showdown between Blake/Erica and Kirk/Ella.  To make sense of this crazy installment of summer’s guiltiest pleasure, we spoke to David Good and Natalie Getz, winners of Bachelor Pad 1.

Michelle and Graham’s relationship took a big step forward this week — were you surprised they won the competition, given they have not been together for that long?  What did you think about their strategy during the game?

He Said: I think it has been growing; we have just not seen much of them because of the Jake/Vienna/Kasey BS.  Best strategy in a game I have seen yet on the Pad!

The Nearlywed Challenge:

This episode kicked off with Blake and Erica teaming up for the Nearlywed Challenge, an offshoot of the Newlywed Game, despite his real desire to be with Holly. However, Holly had promised Michael that she would stick with him to the end, although her behavior throughout the episode indicated that she might be having second thoughts about that decision.

Bachelor Pad 2 drama queen Melissa Schreiber insists she’s not nearly as emotional off-camera as she was on the show, according to People.  The reality star, who ended up getting played by Blake on season 2 of the show after falling for him very quickly, says she no longer has feelings for him.  “My friends and family have been so supportive.  They know that I’m not that emotional outside of the Bachelor world,” said Schreiber.  “It’s so funny.  Every episode, I get like 50 text messages saying, ‘Who are you?  We don’t recognize you on TV.’  For some reason, when in the Bachelor house, I’m overly emotional.”

How do you avoid falling for someone too quickly?

Things got pretty crazy in the latest episode of Bachelor Pad 2.  We saw Melissa flip out, Erica make the moves on Jake and a showdown between Kasey and Jake for the final rose.  After the episode, we were left shaking our heads that Mr. Pavelka was actually eliminated, and were anxious to get thoughts about the dramatic episode from David Good and Natalie Getz, winners of Bachelor Pad 1.

Were you surprised the men did better at the synchronized swimming challenge?  What factors were most important to you as you were judging the performances?

He Said: I was a little surprised until after and sat down and thought about it.  Guys in the house on all the shows get along better than the girls do.  The producers always talked to me about the Bachelor and Bachelorette — the guys are typically easy going, whereas the girls tend to be catty and backstabbing to each other.  It’s the same reason most of my guy friends have like 15 good friends and the girls I know have like three or four, at most. This makes it easier for the guys to work together as a team, and it showed.

‘Bachelor Pad 2’ Recap Episode 2: Ames Brown Trumps them All

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.”

After Ashley Hebert’s confession to host Chris Harrison last week in Thailand and sneak peeks from ABC, it was no surprise that this week’s drama would center around Bentley Williams. Before the dates could start in Hong Kong, our bachelorette was treated to a private meeting with the bad boy. In the privacy of Williams’s hotel room, the pair had an honest conversation about Hebert’s feelings about their “dot dot dot” romance. After the villain said, “I feel like where you’re at in this process and journey, we should call it a period,” the bachelorette finally seemed to see his true colors. As she walked away from his room, she called him a “player” and shared that she felt “liberated” to move forward in her relationships and love with the remaining bachelors. With that chaos in the past, this week’s reality TV episode would feature two one-on-one dates as well as a group date.

We watched Brad Womack say goodbye to Ashley Hebert in South Africa and cheered when she was named the next Bachelorette.  We’ve all speculated about what kind of guy will get Ashley’s final rose, and we’re excited to review the 25 bachelors on her season and make some early picks!

But before we speculate about Ashley’s Mr. Right, here’s a refresher on what this fourth year dental student is looking for in a man.  She told People magazine that she was hoping to find a guy that “makes me feel comfortable, somebody with a positive outlook on life, who’s going to be supportive and loyal.”

With that said, here’s who we think may have what it takes to be rewarded with Ashley’s final rose:
