Bachelor Pad 3 Premiere Scoop: Contestants Will Be “Falling for Love”

It’s back! Bachelor Pad 3 will infect TV sets with its magical summer ooze starting Monday, July 23 from 8 to 10 p.m. on ABC.

Did you watch BP2? If so, do you remember the “Hook Up” challenge on the premiere? It sounds like the BP3 Padawans will be doing something similar for their first challenge.

Here’s more from ABC’s very un-detailed press release on the premiere:

“Five ‘Super Fans’ found through an open casting call will spice it up in the mansion and compete for love and money against veteran bachelors and bachelorettes. The group heads to the mansion to live, scheme and connive as they compete for $250,000 – and possibly another chance at love. In the first group challenge, ‘Falling for Love,’ the men and women couple up and try to keep each other from falling out of quickly tilting hearts hoisted high up off the ground. The winning couple is safe from elimination, but the couple that falls first will each carry a vote against them into the rose ceremony.”

And in case you are not too familiar with the Pad rules:

“Each week the contestants will square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of each challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose. At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves — the men will vote off a woman and vice versa — to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition.”

The 20 contestants competing for at least half of the $250,000 jackpot are...
