The Bachelor in Paradise finale did not disappoint. Host Chris Harrison promised us drama, and as always, he delivered. In the end, it came down to three couples: adorable Sarah Herron and Robert Graham, solid Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd, and wild cards Michelle Money and Cody Sattler. Then, Harrison rolled in with overnight date cards for the love birds, giving them time to work it out (and work it out) before the final day in paradise.

After the dates, Herron and Graham broke up and headed home. Of course, Faddoul and Grodd emerged from their room as engrossed as ever. And by a huge surprise, Money, who entered the date as unsure as one can be, and Sattler, both glowing, sauntered into the hut “satisfied” and “sore.” Money even gushed, “I have a boyfriend!”

After Money and Sattler exchanged roses, a very nervous Grodd took his girl down to the beach and proposed! Faddoul said yes, and they formally accepted each other’s last roses. With intrigue and endings that happy, it’s no wonder BIP has already been green-lighted for a sophomore season.

Intertwined in all the twists and turns of the episode was the internal struggle within Money to accept the love that Sattler was offering not only her but her young daughter too. The personal trainer was so sweet and patient with her as she hesitated throughout most of their time together. The Utah hairstylist said in interviews that he wasn’t the type of guy she usually pursued. She also expressed feelings of being overwhelmed by how quickly his feelings progressed and how strongly he came on. It really wasn’t until her last moments on camera that she decided to go all in.

Now that the season is over, everyone can see that she is elated with her man. Money’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are flooded with pictures of the two of them along with her daughter. She captioned one sweet photo with, “Soooooo in love with @cody_sattler and so happy I can finally talk about it!! This man has changed my life!! I am a better woman because of him!!! I am the luckiest girl in the whole world!!” As she told UsMagazine.com, “I’ve never met anyone as amazing as Cody. I never thought someone like him existed. It’s been such a beautiful surprise.”

This got us thinking. In real life, we often end up with a partner who we never saw in our lives. We all have our types — the fellows we’re drawn to and keep falling in and out of relationships with until one day, we meet someone different. It’s always the “this one is so different” that ends up turning into “he’s The One.” So how do you know when to ditch your type and just go for it with the divergent dude? Here are three things to consider:

Related Link: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Contestant Chris Bukowski Talks Friendship with Michelle Money and Split from Elise Mosca

1. You’re so over it: When the guy that is so up your alley lets you down just like all the others that came before him, it’s time to mix it up. There is no need to keep torturing yourself with men just because they match your typical criteria. There are so many guys out there waiting for you!

2. You’re in a slump: If you haven’t been seeing anyone special for a while, it might be because you’ve boxed yourself in. When you look outside those boundaries, things will start to change, for better or worse. The point is: They’re changing. You’re getting out there and learning things about yourself that you may have forgotten because you unknowingly cut yourself off from all of those other fish in the sea.

3. He’s right there: Just like Money realized, someone could be right in front of your face, begging you to see them. Maybe you friend-zoned him ages ago; maybe he even gets under your skin a little bit; or maybe you met him yesterday and automatically wrote him off. Whatever the excuse, tell that voice in your head to pipe down and leap into his arms. Most likely, he will catch you and never put you down.

‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Reality TV Star Jesse Kovacs Apologizes: “I Acted Like a No Class D-Bag”

Interview by Lori Bizzoco. Written by Ann Luther.

On this week’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise, Jesse Kovacs escaped Tulum, Mexico, in his typical controversial fashion. The villainized cast member departed the reality TV show with regrets and without a relationship and love. In all the chaos of his exit — the accusations, the name-calling, the confrontations, and the yelling — it was difficult to understand just what happened in paradise and why. Luckily, we got an exclusive interview with Kovacs and heard his side of the story.

Related Link: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Contestant Jesse Kovacs Denies Threesome: “I Fell Asleep”

Reality TV Star Opens Up About Controversial Celebrity Hook-Up

We all know the magic of television editing can turn anyone’s character sour, but Kovacs testifies, “I feel like trying to explain what happened on the episode would be a cop-out. I can’t blame anything on editing.” He goes on, “There were certain things that were suggested that never happened, but all the statements made by me and others really were said.”

In his last moments on camera, Kovacs was accosted in his exit car by three heated women: Christy Hansen, Michelle Money, and Lacy Faddoul. The scene was intense. “I have no idea why they were upset after I left.” The San Diego native added, “I never wanted a drama-filled confrontation. I just wanted to leave.”

But we all know what he said in front of and outside of the confessional camera. After the show, the winemaker told us that he “never had the intention of being disrespectful,” but then he conceded, “I made some pretty stupid statements about Christy, and I feel horrible.” The 32-year-old admits that he called Hansen and apologized. “I acted like a dick, and Christy wanted to let me know.” He also “hashed it out” with Money post-show.

The style in which Kovacs went out was by no means gentlemanly, but he defends his actions. “I left as soon as I felt like my time was up. No connection was happening, and I didn’t want to waste any one’s time. And I know people probably think I already wasted every one’s time, but everything happened so fast.” He must have done something right, though, because he says he still talks to most of the guys. Plus, “Lucy [Aragon] and Michelle are still friends…I think.”

Related Link: Jesse Kovacs on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Controversy: “Guy Talk Isn’t Always Meant to be Shared”

The whole ordeal surrounding his celebrity hook-up was a lot to handle, but reflection brings both perspective and clarity. Kovacs wants everyone, especially his parents, to know that he’s sorry. In a statement to us, he explains: “To my Mom and Dad, I’m sorry you had to sit through that, and please stay off my Twitter for a while. I acted like a no class d-bag, and although all the things being said about me aren’t true, they are well-deserved.”

We look forward to what comes next for Jesse Kovacs, the Liquid Lounge co-owner, reality TV star, and self-proclaimed d-bag!

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.

Two stars of Bachelor Pad 2, Michelle Money and Graham Bunn, have managed to keep their relationship going long after the cameras stopped rolling, according to People.  Money, who returned to Utah after the show, and Bunn, who now resides in New York, make sure they keep in contact almost every day.  How do they do it?  Well, it’s not visiting each other every weekend or doing “hanky panky” over the phone.  The two keep their relationship going strong with communication.

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.

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.”

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.
