    About The Show

    GET TO KNOW YOUR FAVORITE ALL-STARS FROM THE BACHELOR AND THE BACHELORETTE BATTLE IT OUT FOR A CHANCE AT LOVE AND A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS, ON ABC'S HOT NEW SUMMER SERIES, BACHELOR PAD!

    There's a lot of love (and loathing) in the room as fan-favorites, arch-rivals, scheming villains and the sexiest participants from the Bachelor franchise reunite under one roof in a new series to compete for $250,000 and perhaps... a "second chance" at love on ABC's BACHELOR PAD, premiering MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET).

    The series begins with 19 of the most unforgettable characters from seasons past living together in the Bachelor Pad mansion. Each week, they'll square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with the contestant of their choice. The winner of the challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose.

    At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition. The show offers the 19 now-single contestants a "second chance" at finding love, something that didn't quite work out the first time around.

    Re: About The Show

    Basically, this show is ABC's version of I Love Money, except with a few minor tweaks and a touch of love involved. Oh, and it's less trashy than the VH1 show.

    Re: About The Show

    Here's a complete roster of all the contestants and their "claim to fame" from previous seasons. Some of these are hysterical.

    'Bachelor Pad': The Contestants' Craziest Past Moments - Yahoo! TV Blog

    Ashley
    Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 14 (Jake's season)
    Claim to fame: She donned a stewardess outfit to entice Jake.


    Craig M. Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 6 (Ali's season)
    Claim to fame: He spent most of his time terrifying Jonathan (aka The Weatherman) and perfecting his perma-hairdo.


    David Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 5 (Jillian's season)
    Claim to fame: He established the "man code" among his fellow bachelors and creeped everyone out during a drunken rant against Juan.


    Elizabeth Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 14 (Jake's season)
    Claim to fame: She made us hate her with her "kiss me/don't kiss me" antics and ridiculous rollercoaster of a personality. And she cried. A lot.


    Gia Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 14 (Jake's season)
    Claim to fame: She was cheated on in her pre-"Bachelor" life and then went on this show, fell in love, and got dumped on national TV.


    Gwen Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 2 (Aaron's season)
    Claim to fame: A hundred years ago she made it to the final three and basically got eliminated for not being enough of a party girl. It's refreshing to know that some things never change.


    Jesse B. Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 6 (Ali's season)
    Claim to fame: He didn't do much of note with Ali, except look attractive, enjoy a free trip to Vegas, and extol the virtues of small-town living.


    Jesse K. Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 5 (Jillian's season)
    Claim to fame: Quiet and seemingly sane. He was attractive and made wine and didn't get to stick around long enough to see the Wes drama unfold.


    Jessie Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 14 (Jake's season)
    Claim to fame: She's the one who witnessed Rozlyn supposedly hooking up with the producer and clued in Ali to Rated R's secret girlfriend.


    Jonathan
    Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 6 (Ali's season)
    Claim to fame: Nicknamed "The Weatherman," he was a nice guy who never had a shot with Ali, but he made his mark by getting bullied and tortured by Craig M.


    Juan Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 5 (Jillian's season)
    Claim to fame: Known for being the guy David threatened, ostensibly because he was there for the wrong reasons.


    Kiptyn Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 5 (Jillian's season)
    Claim to fame: He looked perfect and was sweet, but he came in second place to a guy who Jillian ended up splitting with anyway. That's how much of a dull Ken doll he is.


    Krisily Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 7 (Charlie's season)
    Claim to fame: This bossy thing nearly won the heart of Charlie O'Connell, a true prize if there ever was one.


    Michelle Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 14 (Jake's season)
    Claim to fame: She went psycho upon realizing that "her boyfriend" would be kissing other people. And she got sent home during one really uncomfortable kiss
    .

    Natalie
    Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 13 (Jason's season)
    Claim to fame: She told her potential husband that she really liked bears. She also told him that she thought the Hoover Dam was a beautiful creation of nature. But we mostly remember her for ranting like a lunatic at Jason when he dumped her.


    Nikki Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 13 (Jason's season)
    Claim to fame: Got dumped during a two-on-one date (which always stinks) and didn't exactly get along with Natalie.


    Peyton Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 10 (Andy's season)
    Claim to fame: She's sweet and kind and whatever, but she was so boring that we had a hard time feeling bad when he left her on an aircraft carrier.


    Tenley Previous season: "The Bachelor" Season 14 (Jake's season)
    Claim to fame: She's the Disney princess of the show, and had a pout, got cheated on by her ex-husband, and was then left brokenhearted when Jake chose Vienna. That worked out well.


    Wes
    Previous season: "The Bachelorette" Season 5 (Jillian's season)
    Claim to fame: He's the notorious fella who went on the show despite having a girlfriend back home and was only there to boost his music career.
