The Bachelor Pad Season Two cast members have been released, and it looks like we are in for a full on, no holds barred, absolutely funk-fried ho down of a train wreck reality television program to look forward to this summer on ABC, kids. Or to paraphrase the band Trainwreck itself (fronted by Tenacious D alum Kyle Gass): if you liked the Bachelor Pad debut season, you’ll like Bachelor Pad 2.
Let’s not forget first and foremost that the concept of the show speaks brilliantly and succinctly for itself: The sexiest participants from the hugely successful Bachelor franchise reunite under one roof in a competitive reality series to compete for $250,000.
The fact that both Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi are set to join the antics alone makes this a potentially riveting theater of the ribald and bizarre. Let’s recall that this is the very couple that theoretically got engaged on national television just a few seasons back, only to break up, break down, and attempt to metaphorically break each other apart on venues ranging from tabloid rags and websites to The Bachelor reunion show.
Other delights include Kasey Kahl, the guy who creepily intoned that he was determined to guard and protect Ali Fedotowski; Justin “Rated-R” Rego, the guy who was forced to slowly limp away on a casted foot after being caught out for cardinal Bachelor/Bachelorette sin (Not Being There For [Ali]); Michelle Money, the psycho-vixen from Brad Womack’s second Bachelor go-round; and Gia Allemand, who just happened to have her heart crushed by the very same Jake Pavelka.
Here’s the full known Bachelor Pad 2 cast list to date:
Bachelor Pad 2 premieres Monday August 8th at 8pm on ABC.
