LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Purported Bachelor Pad 3 winner, Nick Peterson, could end up being overshadowed by the Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones engagement. The curiosity about whether Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones are still together heated up online last night. Moreover, Tony and Blakeley were drawing far more viewer reactions during last night’s telecast than questions over who wins Bachelor Pad 3 2012. Online spoilers claim that Nick is your Bachelor Pad 3 winner, and that Tony and Blakeley get engaged. But if last season was any indication, Nick might not end up “winning” the ratings draw but rather Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones.
Ever since the first season of The Bachelor, fans are fascinated to know if current love interests remain intact after shooting ends. Because of the production lag between filming and broadcast dates, viewers suspect a lot of these relationships fail to last after cameras stop rolling.
That was the case in Bachelor Pad 2 when Ames left the show, chased down Jackie, and pledged his love to Jackie. But in the end, their relationship didn’t last.
As reported in 2011, the Jackie and Ames storyline was a major midseason ratings hit for Bachelor Pad. So far, Pad 3 hasn’t had that this season. With no major relationship shockers, however, that will change with Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones in the finale. Online spoilers from RealitySteve claim that Tony proposes to Blakeley, that the two are engaged and that they are looking forward to getting married.
And while RealitySteve also reports that Nick Peterson is your 2012 Bachelor Pad 3 winner, don’t expect his winning to resonate well with fans.
Bachelor Pad viewers, come the finale, will have three franchise relationships all at stake. Are Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones still together. Are Jef Holmes and Emily Maynard still together? And Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson still together? All three couples claim that they are still together, still engaged. But could that change by the time Nick’s win is announced to news? That remains to be seen.
