Cupid's Pulse Article: Bachelor Pad 2: Breakups, Makeups and Crazy PeopleCupid's Pulse Article: Bachelor Pad 2: Breakups, Makeups and Crazy People

By Kari Arneson

Hang on to your roses!  The new season of Bachelor Pad is starting up this summer and we have all the juicy details and predictions for a season that’s sure to be full of feuds, flirtations and lots of fun.  Here’s what you need to know before Bachelor Pad 2 premieres on August 8:

Jake and Vienna together again! Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, who got engaged at the end of The Bachelor season 14, broke up shortly afterwards – and it wasn’t pretty.  These two had a very public falling out, including a hard-to-watch interview on The Bachelorette season 6 that included plenty of crying, yelling and finger-pointing.  Expect a lot more bickering and bawling as both bitter exes are confirmed to appear on Bachelor Pad 2.  Add Kasey Kahl, Vienna’s new boyfriend and the famous “tattoo guy” from Ali Fedotowsky’s Bachelorette season, to make things even more awkward (if possible).

Couple alert? Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano are also confirmed to be on the show, although it remains to be seen whether or not they will appear as a couple.  Durst, from Matt Grant’s season of The Bachelor, and Stagliano, from Jillian Harris’ season of The Bachelorette, were once engaged and planning a double wedding with DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano.  However, the couple broke up, then got back together, then broke up, then…who knows.  The twosome’s uncertain relationship status is yet another reason to tune in.

Dun dun dun… Some famous villains/crazy people from past seasons are back to cause more trouble.  Justin “Rated R” Rego and Michelle Money can be counted on among the eccentrics.  Justin tried to woo Ali Fedotowsky while promoting his professional wrestling career while Michelle earned the ire of the ladies on Brad’s season just by being her odd self.  Jackie Gordon, one of Michelle’s biggest critics, will also compete on Bachelor Pad 2, so watch out for some more catfights!

Other contestants include Graham Bunn, Kirk DeWindt and Tanner Pope on the men’s side and Gia Allemand, Ashleigh Hunt, Ella Nolan, Erica Rose, Melissa Schreiber and Alli Travis on the women’s side.  However, reports there will be not one, not two, but three mystery men from Ashley Hebert’s season of The Bachelorette, so don’t be surprised if super villain Bentley or Jeff “The Mask” show up to stir the pot.

Tune in to Bachelor Pad 2 when it premieres on August 8 on ABC.  And stay right here for all the latest on The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad 2!
