LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – As possible Bachelor Pad 3 2012 winner spoilers continue to leak online, fans now know that power couples will not last this season. They also now know that Michael Stagliano gets eliminated midway during the season. But as fans continue to ask who is the winner of Bachelor Pad 3 2012, spoilers got a new twist this week. Chris Harrison told news that, despite whatever viewers see in earlier episodes, no alliance will continue to the final episode.
Spoilers have previously revealed that the Bachelor Pad 3 winner will be one or two of the following four finalists: Rachel Truehart, Nick Peterson, Ed Swiderski and Jaclyn Swartz. But if Chris Harrison’s suggestion this week is correct, do not expect any of the final four contestants to forge lasting alliances during the season.
In a news statement this month, Harrison told viewers that “There is no such thing as an alliance or couple this season.” Why happens in the Bachelor Pad 3 finale? Harrison is not specific as to which episodes he is referring to. But Harrison tells TV Guide that, during the season, two contestants get romantic, only to stab the other in the back. “Two people hook up and all seems to go great, and then they vote the other person out”.
Harrison also tells news that nothing is predictable in this season. “Every time you think you get it figured out, they do a 180 on you and this is a great example.”
That lack of predictability is expected to aid the show’s ratings. Bachelor Pad 3 ratings have already been strong. Last week, the show tied Hell’s Kitchen for the key 18-49 ratings share, but beat all the competition with the exception of the Olympics.
This season’s spoilers have not angered fans. Such was not the case last season when fans became irate after spoilers revealed that Jake gets eliminated, early on. In the end, the elimination of Jake Pavelka and the romance of Jackie And Ames were ratings sensations.
Last season, when Ames chased down Jackie’s limo, many viewers called it one of the best scenes ever from the franchise. “That moment between Jackie & Ames is the cutest moment in Bachelor Pad history, and is up there in Bachelor history with Trista and Ryan, and Ali and Roberto.” Many women fell in love with Ames that night. One wrote “OMG Ames .. I never thought I would be jealous of Jackie [... tonight I am].” Another fan wrote “Ames is so precious. I hope he and Jackie really do work out.” And yet, they didn’t.
Another person who didn’t work out well in BP2 was Jake Pavelka. His elimination outraged viewers. “I can’t believe Jake Pavelka went home on bp2. He was the only one worth watching”, one angry fan wrote at the time.
Last season was dominated by alliances. “Despite another attempted take down, power couple Vienna and Kasey continue to get their way”, one fan noted. This season, the alliances will crumble, claims Harrison.
For BP3, Michael Stagliano will be eliminated far before the finale. But will his elimination prompt a reaction similar to Jake’s elimination in BP2? That remains to be seen.
