Back in January, Wetpaint Entertainment asked Bachelor Pad 2 winner Michael Stagliano to name his favorites girls from Ben Flajnik’s The Bachelor Season 16.

Lindzi Cox immediately caught my eye,” he answered. “She is a smoke-show (hot), but not in a Hollywood, lustful kind of way. I think she is BEAUTIFUL on the inside as a person (from what I’ve seen) and that glows from within and makes her ‘hotness’ a whole other kind of beauty. She says ‘please’ and ‘thank you,’ she is kind and respectful to the other girls, stays out of the drama. Wow. I could go on and on.”

It’s possible he will go on and on since it sounds like they will both be on Bachelor Pad Season 3 this summer. Lindzi — who turned out to be Ben’s runner-up — and Michael were both on the rumored list for this season and Reality Steve confirmed the news on June 10, tweeting, “You can take Lindzi Cox off the rumored list. She's headed to LA today for Bachelor Pad.”

William Holman, who was also on BP2 with Stag, tweeted, “I bet Michael calls Dibs.” Steve replied, “Ha ha. You beat me to my next tweet. Was just writing that. No doubt Michael goes after her.”

So we may already have our first BP3 couple — or not. Time will tell.

Steve said his updated list of past contestants believed to be on BP3 now includes Lindzi, Michael, Blakeley Shea (Bachelor 16), Jaclyn Swartz (Bachelor 16), Ed Swiderski (Bachelorette 5), Reid Rosenthal (Bachelorette 5), Nick Peterson (Bachelorette 7) and Kalon McMahon (Bachelorette 8). Steve guessed they would cast at least three guys from Emily Maynard’s current Bachelorette season, so that would mean Kalon plus at least two other guys. Let’s call them “baggage” for now. There should also be at least one “fresh face” in the cast, since producers put out the call for newbies to compete alongside past players this season.

Bachelor Pad Season 3 premieres Monday, July 23. Mark your calendars, place your bets and pray for the newbies to at least make it to Episode 2.
