The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka, 33, is a bachelor no more.  Pavelka is now a dating graduate of the University of Central Florida and a contestant on CMT’s Sweet Home Alabama, Ashley Ann Vickers. The relationship is fairly new, as they met on the set of the CW show H8r and just this past Saturday hit the beach for some couple-time. According to UsMagazine.com, Vickers’ website says she is a Southern born lady who competed in the Miss USA pageant and modeled for Maxim. But her true passion lies in motivation, as she “hopes to become a full time motivational speaker for college kids” in the future. If her website is anything to go by, Vickers seems like a keeper.

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.

This week’s episode of Bachelor Pad 2 featured two of our very own, Natalie Getz and David Good. And boy did they make a splash judging the synchronized swimming challenge.

Synchronized Swimming Challenge:

Synchronized swimming is no easy task.  You need rhythm and coordination in order to achieve a great performance. With former cheerleaders and dancers on the girl’s team, your first impression is that the girls would have it in the bag. Guess again! It was a mere foreshadowing when the first two girls in the line-up could not even dive into the pool. Lucky for them, their bright, flowery head caps and matching bathing suits kept us distracted from their lack of grace.  It was a total shocker when Michelle Money planted a big fat kiss on Holly Durst but it helped win her a vote.

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.”

Reality star exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi may have been previously engaged after the 14th season of the Bachelor, but it turns out the two are definitely at odds when it comes to working together on the new season of Bachelor Pad 2. A preview shows an almost defeated Jake Pavelka asking to make an alliance with Girardi as a last resort to remain in the competition, according to UsMagazine.com. Girardi doesn’t seem very keen on the idea, though, since she is still hurt and is finally happy and moving on with her new beau Kasey Kahl. The pair are rumored to be looking for an apartment in Los Angeles 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.

It looks like Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi has found new love with Bachelorette contestant Kasey Kahl, reports Hollywood Life.  “Kasey is genuinely a nice, caring, loving person, even when the cameras are off, ” said Girardi.  That’s what makes the difference.  When we’re at home eating dinner or watching a movie, he’s still that sweet charming guy that he is when we’re out in public.  I want someone who is going to love me unconditionally, all day every day -— not just when other people are seeing it.”  Girardi’s dramatic split from ex-fiancé Jake Pavelka on national television taught her to be careful while dating in the public eye.  Kahl is also wary of public television-based romance.  “I told myself I’d never date someone from the Bachelor franchise, but I met her, and everything went out the window,” said Kahl.  “She’s amazing.  No matter what we’ve gone through, and no matter what she’s gone through, I’m here now, and I will make sure she’s the happiest girl ever.”

Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky recently ran into an unexpected woman from her past: Vienna Girardi, former fellow contestant and fiancée of Jake Pavelka.  On season six of The Bachelor, Ali and Vienna went head-to-head in a competition for Jake’s heart.  In the end, Vienna snagged Jake, only to have their very public breakup displayed on Ali’s season of The Bachelorette a few months later.  The reality stars came face-to-face again at the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge at Montage Beverly Hills, where they kept the conversation short.  An onlooker told US Weekly, “Ali made sure to keep her distance while hanging with girlfriends,” but both said ‘hi’ briefly.
