    Bachelor Pad 4 NEWS

    Mike Fleiss says no 'Bachelor Pad' this summer
    by Lynette Rice


    Bummer news from the king of the Bachelor franchise today.

    Mike Fleiss answered a fan inquiry on Twitter by saying there won’t be a fourth edition of Bachelor Pad, the cheesy fun spinoff of The Bachelor this summer. ABC confirmed that Pad, which has been a solid little player for ABC in the summer months, will not return this year.

    No word yet on whether we will ever see the Pad again.

    Pad launched in August of 2010 as an elimination-style game show that featured contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, who competed for a final cash prize.

    I'm disappointed. What I liked about the Bachelor Pad was that it had a variety of competitions. It also wasn't as predictable as the Bachelor or Bachelorette.

    I certainly won't mind not having it on this Summer.
    The only thing I found interesting about it was that we got to see the unsanitized version of these people. The side that just wasn't all that nice. The REAL side.

    I'm thrilled we're not being subjected another season of this (or at least are getting a summer off). I never thought some of those people could be more unlikeable than they are on the Bach/Bach'ette, but on BP even the "nice" ones turn out to be jerks.

    I still can't figure out why I watched it in the first place. I've never enjoyed it. I guess it's the trainwreck factor. I just can't turn away.
    I'm glad I won't be wasting my time with it this Summer.

    Bachelor Pad was similar to Big Brother. There were competitions, a cash prize at the end, and there was a lot of scheming about who to send home.

    I read that there will probably be a Bachelor Pad in 2014. Fleiss said that it was his decision to not have a Bachelor Pad this summer.

    Now the big question for me is: Will I waste my time watching this sleazy trainwreck of a show?
    It's like drug addiction. You don't want to. It's unpleasant. Ultimately you don't enjoy it. But you just can't turn your back on it.
