David Good’s Bachelor Pad Blog: Episode 6

To start out the show this week Harrison tells the group that from this point on they will be performing as couples.  The couples are all pretty much decided and Rachel and Nick are the only ones left without teammates so much to Rachel’s disliking she has to team up with Nick.

I live in Tampa, have yet to meet Nick and we have yet to really see him on the show so far.  At some point we are going to have to see him speak you would think…

The competition this week is awesome.  It’s a spelling bee.  This should be fun to watch!

Everyone in the house seems to hate Chris and Sarah with a passion.  They have to win this thing or they will for sure go home (unless ABC decides to cheat again and let Chris take someone in the voting booth or what the hell why not just let Sarah and Chris vote 6 times and not tell anyone.)  I can hear Harrison now.  “This week there is a twist!  Sarah and Chris will be the only people we let vote.”    I mean WTF.  I still can’t believe how that all went down.

-MATTER OF FACT SERIOUSLY WTF?  That was complete horsesh@t!  How can you just let someone show someone else his or her vote???  Why not have OPEN VOTING THEN????  That whole thing to me was shady as hell and if I were on the show would have thrown a fit.  First you change everything up (because you know they were going home) THEN Chris is still going home because of Stag’s genius plan and YOU CHANGE IT UP AGAIN by letting Chris take Erica into the voting booth?   None of that is right or fair in my book.

Anyway.  Sorry for the rant.  That has been eating at me big time.

Where were we?  Oh yea the spelling bee.  So Chris and Sarah have to win the spelling bee.  Of course they do much to the displeasure of EVERYONE there.  Not one person even congratulated them.  Ed and Jaclyn got runner-up.

Chris and Sarah get to go on a nice overnight date.  At dinner Chris opens up about Emily and how hard it was for him and how he is still getting over her.  Cry me a river!

Let me explain why I say that to all you hopeless romantics out there.  The guy was only on the show for 5 weeks maybe.  In that time period he got a few one-on-one dates and a few kisses.  You really don’t spend much time with the person.  Not to mention while he was with her there were 5 cameras around them or 10 other guys watching you sit and talk on a couch.  You never even got to second base let alone anything I would consider remotely serious that your feelings can be super hurt.  I’ll bet my car she does not even know your middle name.  Guess what buddy…..THAT IS NOT LOVE.  That is a little boy crush that hurt your ego when she did not pick you.

Jaclyn and Ed get a chance to talk about their feelings on their date and Ed opens up about not feeling the same way that she does about him.  He tells her that he has been pursuing someone back home and that he came here not wanting a relationship.  You can tell by the look on her face that she is crushed.  I feel so bad for her.

Side note:  I had the pleasure of meeting her this past weekend and she is amazing.  She is so much fun and down to earth!

Eddie and Jaclyn get to hand out two roses and they go with Blakeley and Tony.  This was some smart game play.  This gets those two on their side and in their pocket now.

Tony and Blakeley have a lot of pull now and Kalon, Lindzi and Nick and Rachel are all pleading their cases with them.  We finally get to hear Nick talk.  I’m not gonna lie he probably should have just kept his mouth shut.  He ends up going off on Blakeley and Tony and Rachel is sitting beside him like “OMG is this really happening!”

He must have not made them that upset though because at the Rose Ceremony Kalon and Lindzi get the boot.  I have to say I really enjoyed watching those two on this show!  They seem super happy together and actually the most natural couple to come out of this in my eyes.

See you all next week!!!!  Hope your week is the best week of your life!

  1. Good column! I hate how they have kept chris around, glad you’re calling them out!

  2. Dave,

    Great blog. I totally agree with your commentary on Chris. The fact that he thinks he was in a “relationship
    with Emily is so bizarre to me.

    He was a reality show contestant on a dating show with 24 other guys competing for a woman, had very little time with her, and wasn’t even in the top three. The order of elimination is pretty much arbitrary until the final 2-3.

    By his standards, TOny was also in a “relationship” with Emily, and he should “owe” Tony for dropping out of the show so Chris could progress further in his “relationship.”

    He is totally delusional.

    Emily didn’t even seem to care for him beyond the fact that she thought he was reasonably good looking, but the more she got to know him, the actual Chris, the less attracted she was.

    As you said, beyond a few obligatory kisses (for the cameras and audience back at home), they had nothing.

    It’s all ego. Emily is a gorgeous girl and I think he wants to believe he actually was in a relationship with this woman. He only got to top four because he guilty tripped her into keeping her ahead of Wolf.

    He is so insane – and it’s like he is using and tossing these other women aside on some misguided notion, thinking that he dates the most beautiful woman around and the other plain Janes just don’t cut it — they are just good for a quickie.

    The guy doesnt’ know what love it, and I expect outside of this series, Emily wouldn’t have given that doofus the time of day, much less “dated” him.

    Poor Chris Can’t get over his imaginary reality show relationship with a woman who hardly knew or cared about him. lol

    To show his love he violates other women on reality TV with whom he has actual relationships.

    Truth be told, no woman with self esteem would want him. Eeew.

  3. Maybe in his mind, he thinks he is using the other women in some misguided, weird notion to demonstrate what a “grown ass man” he is and to make Emily jealous, that if she were to come back to him (which in his narcissistic frame of mind is possible), they would be even. She had three guys. He had three girls. So, Chris evened the score.

    I bet he imagines a scenario where they will resume their “relationship” and be able to forgive each other since they each went further with three other partners while still in their imaginary Bachelor Nation “relationship.”

    You know crazy Chris simply MUST be thinking along these lines. How else to explain his weird behavior and crazy eagle eyes?

  4. Dave – I completely agree with your “rant” and appreciate you being so real and honest. Your comments about Chris and “Cry me a river!” – so funny!!!

    Comment by B.R. — August 31, 2012 @ 2:27 pm

  5. David, your blog is the funniest thing I have read in a long time!! Thanks for making me laugh. I agree with a lot of what you said, especially how unfair it was that the producers were making changes (cheating, basically) so that Chris and Sarah would stick around. Some people say that they make the show more interesting, but I disagree. I would want to see Kalon and Lindzi go on a date, and in terms of the game– the most interesting part is when the main alliance are all that are left, and seeing how they maintain some alliances, lie, and make tough decisions.

    I also agree with you about Kalon and Lindzi being nice to watch, but I wish that we would have got to see how their relationship started in the first place. If I remember correctly, Kalon was partners with Donna, and Lindzi had a random partner, and then the next thing we know, they are constantly cuddling and in bed together, and then in love. How did that happen?? Who pursued who? I imagine Kalon lavishing all his attention on Lindzi, because a lot of times he seems really into her (or, just being over the top to make himself look good? we’ll see, depending on how their relationship pans out…) and she is hesitant to throw out the word “love” until the end.

    I think Jacklyn is cool too. She seems SO genuine and honest about her feelings. I feel bad for her though, because I think a lot of us girls can relate to having crazy strong feelings for a guy who is just not that into you… it was especially harsh when he told her he was pursuing someone else back home… like saying, “I’m sleeping with you, but only because this other girl isn’t here.” Some people might say she should have known better, but when emotions get involved, you can’t expect people to think rationally.

  6. I SO agree with your rant. So unfair. I’d way rather keep Michael around than Chris and that was an unfair move on his part! Love your blog, entertaining and to the point! :)

    Comment by Shay — August 31, 2012 @ 7:49 pm

  7. Honestly, I am so glad that Chris took Erica into the voting booth because Michael was caught in his lie. Since it broke the power alliance up I thought it was great.

    Comment by A — September 1, 2012 @ 12:17 am

  8. You are a pisser and I totally enjoyed reading this.
    Just had to say it.

    Comment by Claudia — September 1, 2012 @ 3:32 am

  9. @David Good, you can fall in love at first sight and that does apply to men too. Stop criticizing people about falling in love on TV. You don’t have to have sex with someone to have feelings for them. People have married in less than 5 weeks. Chris had women thrown at him on B-Pad, Emily had his heart.

    Comment by Laura — September 1, 2012 @ 7:43 am

  10. Laura, you don’t fall in love at first sight. It’s lust, pure physical attraction. I think the only time you can have love at first sight is between a parent and a child. But between two adults- No! It’s lust. To love another adult you have to know them, know their personality, their views, their morals, their dreams, dislikes and likes. And those people that get married after 5 weeks- they rarely work out. It’s a fluke when that works out.

    Comment by Lisa — September 1, 2012 @ 11:37 am

  11. Dave, you are so right. It WAS shady to let Chris’ vote be seen by another player! It made me want to stop watching this sham of a game. Thanks for saying what everyone with half a brain is thinking.

    I respect how you are not afraid to stand up and say what you feel, ABC… be damned, not gonna kiss ass. Yay, you have morals! I love it!!

    Comment by ALWAYS A DAVE FAN — September 1, 2012 @ 1:00 pm

  12. @Laura — As far as I can tell, Chris doesn’t have a heart.

    I think it was all about competition with him. He wanted to “win” Emily — and also felt entitled to her. Most men saw her as a prize since she was beautiful, smart, articulate, classy, wealthy, poised — she struck many as being the perfect woman. Every man on that show just about felt he was “in love” with Emily, including Chris Harrision.

    I don’t believe Chris loved Emily. He seems too immature to even know what love is.

    Even if he did feel attachment or “love” within that time, that is the same as feeling a movie star is your soul mate and that you are in a “relationship” with them because they hugged you and you interacted with them on a cruise ship. He is delusional. They had no relationship.

    I don’t think he even really got to know Emily. Plus she was so charming, she inspired that same reaction from anyone.

    Haven’t you been nice to a guy — like said hello to him, and all of a sudden, he’s professing his undying love? That happened to me a lot in college even though I hardly knew the guy or him me.

    That’s called lust/ infatuation. Chris hasn’t been in a relationship since high school even though he professes to be a “grown ass man.”

    He’s a little boy with the emotional IQ of a 12 year old.

    If he truly loved Emily, he wouldn’t be screwing around on national TV. He’d want to be respectful of whatever it is he thought they had.

    Instead he comes across like a spurned lover — he fell in lost, got frustrated and went on a sex rampage.

    Comment by Appleshe — September 1, 2012 @ 6:29 pm

  14. Appleshe, everytime I read what you’ve written, you’ve usually covered it all for me! You are always right on target.

    David, thanks for an honest recap. That was great. I like how you, Stag and Chris H. have all been very honest about Chris not being a nice person. It says a lot about the type of people you are.

    I just love how Chris used the brokenhearted excuse for his cruel, narcissistic, ugly behavior. What a total sleazebag.

    Comment by jessie — September 2, 2012 @ 8:26 am

  15. Great recap, David! It seemed really shady that Erica was allowed in to see the vote. For a “game show” that seems like it should be illegal to influence the outcome like that. Do you think Survivor or Big Brother would ever let that happen?! NO WAY. The whole point of strategy is to trick/influence the other players so you can win.

    Chris is ruining the fairly good edit he got on the bachelorette….true colors coming out now perhaps??? He keeps saying he is so mature & a “grown ass man” you would think a real man wouldn’t have to tell people, they would just show it with their actions.

    Comment by Bella — September 2, 2012 @ 11:47 am

  16. @Jessie, thanks! Great minds think alike (though have also probably rotted after having watched this show!)

    @Bella agree! Its like what Margaret Thatcher says, “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you’re not.”

    Chris isn’t a grown ass man, just a half-assed ass.

    Comment by Appleshe — September 2, 2012 @ 9:12 pm

  17. TEAM CHRIS ****@Appleshe, You’re severely delusional. Going on the Bachelorette is not the same as interacting with someone on a cruise ship, or saying hello to someone in passing, that would make Emily and Jef delusional because they actually got engaged. Chris did not go on a sex rampage. I think you have him mistaken for ED,ED,ED,Ed. Chris turned down Jamie and Blakely, he wasn’t getting face from them like ED, ED,Ed,Ed and then dogging them out and moving on to the next babe. TEAM CHRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Laura — September 4, 2012 @ 1:22 pm

  18. why do you judged people if you don’t know them personally? i’m refering this to those who are talking about Chris. Mr. David Good sir i’ve watched your season and you can’t deny about you and Natalie so pls stop judging other people.

    Comment by dyne — September 4, 2012 @ 4:07 pm

  19. @Laura- If sleeping with 3 different girls isn’t a sex rampage to you, what is? Chris is an ass and he’s cocky as hell. Don’t like him. Ed is just Ed. That’s just how he is. If I ever bump into Chris in Chicago ( as I am from there as well), I hope he proves me wrong and can show me he is a good person. That is all I have to say. @Dave- Have a great week! Keep blogging!

    Comment by Beth Holler — September 4, 2012 @ 7:05 pm

  20. Laura, Chris is an ass who uses women like kleenex. I don’t think appleshe is the delusional one. Too many franchise insiders have commented on how nasty he is, so it’s not even opinion anymore, it’s fact. Chris has proven himself to be a childish, narcissistic little boy (not a grown-ass man) with a cruel streak a mile wide.

    dyne, too many Bach insiders have come forward to say how nasty Chris is in various blogs, etc. It’s not even a matter of judging anymore. When multiple people involved with the show say the same thing about a person, well, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

    Comment by jessie — September 5, 2012 @ 9:55 am

  21. @Jessie, sorry, I don’t believe anything you say. Chris played the game and played it well. That’s what the show is about. He wasn’t obligated to Blakely or Jamie. Teaming up with Sarah was the best decision he could have made and it made the show way more fun to watch. They made a great pair.

    Comment by Laura — September 5, 2012 @ 12:01 pm

  22. Laura, I guess blatantly using and emotially abusing women is okay in your world? I guess it’s okay if a guy treats your daughter, sister, or even you that way? Wow. Not me! I have a lot of self-respect! He would have played the game well if he took the cruelty and narcissistic behavior out of the equation. Sorry…I don’t think most of rational America buys that crap. I agree with you that they did make a great pair. He is an immature cruel person and she is a very loose young woman with no common-sense. They obviously have the same low morals and values. They were not just a great pair, they were a perfect pair.

    Comment by jessie — September 5, 2012 @ 1:45 pm

  23. jessie,emotionally abusing women is NOT okey that’s totally wrong but what happened between Chris and Blakely or Chris and Jamie i think that the women are responsible of their actions bcause they allowed themselves to be in that position.

    Comment by dyne — September 5, 2012 @ 3:48 pm

  24. Great blog, Dave. I’m enjoying your writing more and more. It’s also direct and funny, because you’re straightforward and expressing how you really feel in the moment. I’m surprised ABC or whoever did not take your blog down because of you wrote about the producer’s fucked up manipulation.

    Had no idea there were 5 cameras and 10 other guys in the room. Wow, that’s a really fucked up way to fall in love. “Cry Me a River!” LOL.

    I think even the spelling bee was fixed for Chris and Sarah. They ended up getting the more commonly used words while, while the other two got stranger words that aren’t used as often.

    Fleiss is really miscalculating here. All this drama for ratings but Chris sticking around is really disgusting us. I really can’t believe I have to watch this dickhead.

    And Chris is really stupid. Doesn’t he know that his winning is dependent on the good will of his fellow contestants? DUH. They all hate you, Chris.

    Dave, can you tell us what Fleiss looks like? Does he have thin, very pale white skin and red eyes like the devil?

    Didn’t mean to ramble. Totally stoned right now and I don’t know why I watch this show or spend extra time on this.

    Comment by Cassandra — September 6, 2012 @ 12:48 am

  25. dyne, I agree with you up to a point. None of them should be proud of their behavior. But, Chris played on emotions in a cruel way and told a lot of blatant lies to maipulate feelings. I consider that emotional abuse. His cruelty was mindboggling. But you’re right. Any woman with self-respect wouldn’t be in that situation in the first place. They all need therapy and Ed needs rehab….soon!

    Comment by jessie — September 6, 2012 @ 7:53 am

  26. jessie, totally agree with you they all need therapy especially the women(no self respect at all)

    Comment by dyne — September 13, 2012 @ 6:42 pm

  27. Why all the hate for Chris???
    And it was NOT against the rules to take someone into voting. Just because ‘stags’ is your friend.
