David “Man Code” Good’s Bachelor Pad Blog: Episode 2

Let the fireworks continue!   Jake starts out the show saying he thinks he is in a good position and people are starting to see the real him and that he is not a jerk.  I feel like in his head he must constantly be singing “zippity-du-da, zippidy-ay,” and has no clue about what the hell is going on around him.

The next competition is one where they stand in a line and have targets on their backs.   They are asked questions about the group and have to hit the guy or girl they feel best fits the answer to that question.  Guys are up first and then the girls line up.

The girls line up to throw first and are really, really bad throwers for one.  They should have scooted the line up to about 3 feet.  It turns out Jake’s opinion of himself was off a bit and the girls are drilling Jake here – in regard to who they want to go home.

The guys have a little better aim and are drilling Erica – she’s getting crushed as being the ‘least attractive.’  She is going to be devastated after this, for sure!  Yep!  She is very upset and I feel bad for her.  That is a brutal competition.

I want to say that I feel some of them did not play a very smart game here.   You could have really gotten into someone’s psyche instead of just picking the one who is the least attractive.  Instead, go after the one you want to get into their head.

Mike Stags wins the competition and gets to take 3 girls on a date.  He chooses Erica, Michelle Money and Holly.  This is going to be a little weird to see Holly and Mike together for the first time since they split up. The date is to the Linda Vista hospital, a haunted hospital, basically.  They all seem actually really scared.

I already want to fast forward through this.  I can’t stand all the girls screaming.  It’s giving me a headache.  Talk about a bad date.  I got to go to Vegas and drive Lamborghinis around and you get to go to a haunted hospital.  FAIL.

Mike gives Holly the rose.  I am a friend of both of them and I know how much they did love each other at one point, but have not talked to either of them much since the breakup.  These are real emotions and feelings you are seeing here and it’s hard for me to watch because Mike is my boy and I know how much he cares.

They are both really good people – I can say that.  Mike tells Holly that he just really wants her to be happy and they are both getting pretty emotional.  Two years and being engaged, then breaking up and now having to talk about this on NATIONAL television has got to be hard.  Damn man.  That’s the most real emotion I have ever seen on any “Bachelor” show.  None of this garbage like Jake crying by a trash can – real emotion!

Melissa won the competition on the girls’ side and gets to take 3 guys on a date.

She picks Kasey, Blake and Kirk.  They take a yacht out on the water for a bit.

All the guys are trying to hit on Melissa and win this rose.  Blake actually goes in for a kiss.  He is really playing the game.  I have to respect that – a kiss for a rose.  For sure!  I had to kiss nine girls to get a rose.  Winning (DUH)!

Wow!  That must have been a nice kiss because she just went right against Kasey and what she said to him right before the date!  That was a bad move on her part.  She just spit right in Kasey’s face and she was the one that went to him with the idea to help each other out.

Back in the house, Jake is feeling really left out and Vienna is drilling in all the girls’ heads what a bad person Jake really is.    As she is doing this Jake asked to talk to her outside.  This should be good!

Jake asks to speak to Vienna outside and she denies him!  Good play on her part.  She knows he is just trying to swing her.  Nice try though on his part as a last ditch effort. Of course Gia feels bad for him. Being on this show for the second time I feel Gia should be a lot smarter than she is and steer clear of drama.

Gia pulls Graham aside to talk strategy.  Says they have to break up Kasey and Vienna.  This is the last person Graham should be talking strategy with, unfortunately.  Just like on our show, Gia can switch opinions or implode at the drop of a hat.  She plays the game by emotions and not with her brain.   I think Graham sees this and is just playing along.

Melissa walks in on Blake and Holly lying in bed together chatting and looks pretty upset.  Giving Blake devil eyes, Melissa says she does not want drama while at the same time creating drama.  First, Melissa you should have given the rose to Kasey like you said you would and second you are not helping your rep from your first show right now.

Jake comes to Kasey and Vienna now and asked to talk to them both.  He asked Kasey and Vienna for help! This guy is unreal!  He said he is going to donate all the money to charity.  He is the biggest, cheesiest, liar on this show ever!  That is complete crap.  I am pissed he just said that.  I don’t feel sorry for him, one bit.  You can only play the sympathy card for so long, bud.

This was a shocker, Chris just announced that two girls would be going home and no guys this episode!  Everyone was caught completely off guard.  Unbelievable.

Kasey sits down and tells Gia that Graham told him what she said and Gia explodes!  Gia said she is walking out right now.  Hilarious.  It’s her second chance on the show for $250,000 and she blew it again over childish ‘he said, she said.’  She is doing the same thing as she did last season, backstabbing others and getting upset when she gets caught and blaming others.

Let me tell you something: it’s a game for $250,000 – that’s it!  Childish clown crap is what you are witnessing here.  Gia, what the f#$k do you really think is going to happen in there?  Embarrassing.  This clearly upsets me and hits home.  Do you not see how you scheme and plot and then get upset when others do it?  To make it worse you put others down and act like you’re some princess.   You did the same thing on our show.  Way to fold under pressure.

Kasey is playing a good game right now but he is really putting himself out there and a target on his back.  He needs to lay low for a bit and not try and be such a power player.  That’s how you become a power player.  Make sense?

As usual at the Rose Ceremony there is so much plotting and scheming, I can’t type it all out. A standout would be Melissa going off on Blake and telling him he has dug his own grave because he is talking to Holly.  She is an emotional wreck and crying all over the place.

Because Gia backed out already, only one girl is going home at the Rose Ceremony and that girl is Jackie.  Ames and Jackie seem to have hit it off!  He kisses her goodbye and as she is being driven off he runs after her and leaves with her!  Wow!  This guy is amazing.  He better hope that works out because he just gave up a chance at $250,000.  That is the most romantic thing I have ever seen in all my 29 years!  Good for you two!

See ya’ll next week!


  1. Kasey and Vienna are disgusting and have multiple personalities. Jake seems like a control freak that has to humble himself. Gia isn’t as bad as you make her. What has she done that everyone else isn’t doing? Kasey has gone against his word as well. And if you saw the video that he and Vienna did, you would see how fake they are. And the fact that she says she’s forced to be there with Jake is hilarious and Chris put her in her place! Stag is awesome and can do waaaaay better than Holly. Holly’s a groupie! Melissa is a wack job. The only normal girl on the show was Jackie!

  2. Best blog I’ve read so far! Spot on w/ Gia & Jake. People need to discern the unfolding events using logic, not emotions. :) But i want to point out Melissa did not go against Kasey by giving Blake the rose. Melissa talked to Kasey beforehand about giving it to Blake, & Kasey encouraged her. It just wasn’t aired

  3. Is that why Kasey looked so betrayed. All of them are fake and lyars!

  4. Dave,

    I’d like to know more about which guys this season live up to the “Man Code.” Do you think Jake makes the cut at all?

    Comment by Elizabeth — August 20, 2011 @ 12:38 am

  5. i totally agree with you about the whole melissa and blake thing…and actually everything you said! Great blog! :)

    Comment by Jess — August 20, 2011 @ 1:11 am

  6. Great Blog Dave. Ya, it would be great if you describe the Man Code and who in your opinion best represents the Man Code. You were spot on with Gia – She is one of my favorites, but she plays with her emotions and doesn’t stick to her allies – jumping back & forth.

    Jake is a fake, but I still would like to see either Kasey or Vienna go home first to break up that power hold – that would actually make the game more interesting!

  7. So sick of Jake. He has no intention of getting closure with Vienna and he doesn’t care about being on “good terms” with her either.
    The only reason he is on the pad is simply because he wants to clean his image.
    People hated him after that breakup special so now he’s trying to get a good image.
    Thats it people!!! He doesn’t still have feelings for Vienna. The people that are that gullible I feel sorry for.
    Open your eyes and stop being so DAMN gullible

  8. I don’t think everybody Hated Jake because of the Breakup Show! I think Vienna Got Exactly What She Deserved! Drama Queen All The Way! She’s A Hypocritocal 2-faced Backstabber! Anything for Limelight! And Kasey Needs some Speech Therapy! Can’t stand that voice! The 2 of them are made for each other! I, Personally Like Jake! Why hound him all the time when there are Others A Lot Worse!

  9. I like Jake. I used to like Vienna, too, but now don’t respect her.

    You are the one who doesn’t “understand”, Dave – Gia is totally good. She was talking about morals. How can you write a book about what’s right, without seeing it in other people?? GIA DID NOT LIE, she planned. By going behind her back and betraying her confidence, Graham was dishonest. Simple.

  10. Great blog, Dave!

    Comment by Latrine — August 22, 2011 @ 12:30 pm

  11. As you probably know, Ames and Jackie have broken up.

    Comment by Lisa — August 22, 2011 @ 5:38 pm

  12. I am confused about Gia’s “morality.” How can she claim to be so virtuous and innocent and yet pose for Maxim, date ballers, cheat on boyfriends, get breast implants, and wear cleavage-baring outfits. She seems very sweet and kind, like someone who couldn’t hurt a fly – and yet totally sleazy and brain dead.

  13. Well written blog, I think I’d have to agree with ya on just about everything. The alliances, drama and tears don’t make sense. This is all so over the top!!

    The fact that my nursing girls and I get together when we’re off, crack a bottle of wine and watch these shows weekly is mind boggling to me. What’s even worse, is that I caught myself researching this show, stumbled across (and read) a blog about it. This show is like crack for a reality show addict!
    Anyone know of a good rehab? Because my name is Lisa and I’m an addict.

  14. Dear “Man Code”

  18. Dear Dave. Seriously this Man Code thing is silly and immature. It only shows you need some growing up to do.
