Bachelor Pad 3 just wrapped filming in LA — and Reality Steve is already releasing spoilers on the final couples! When we read that two of Bachelor Ben Flajnik’s exes — Jaclyn Swartz and Rachel Truehart — made it into the finals we couldn’t wait to grill their BFF and fellow Bachelor 16 alum Jenna Burke on the rumors!
Wetpaint Entertainment: Rumors are pointing to your two BFFs Rachel Truehart and Jaclyn Swartz as the final two ladies [on Bachelor Pad 3]. Are you surprised?
Are you kidding? Not at all. Jaclyn and Rachel kick ass. They're an absolute blast to hang out with. They get how to play the game, everyone loves them and they look hot in a bikini. Is there more to this game?
Jenna Burke: Have you spoken to them since filming wrapped?
I've just talked to Jaclyn and we obviously didn't talk about the show. I respect she's under contract and I'll find out sooner than later all the juicy details. I'm just happy she's home! And Rachel too! I tweeted Nick today welcoming him home. He said he missed his phone lol.
Rachel is rumored to have paired up with Nick Peterson. Do you think they make a cute couple?
I honestly called that from the start. Think I told Jackie Gordon that when I was on Gossip with Getz. Nick has a fun, loveable personality and so does Rachel. They're just a big ball of fun. Haven’t gotten the scoop yet if they’re dating, but I feel like their babies would be beautiful blue-eyed surfers.
If the rumors on the final two couples are true, who do you think will win? Ed and Jaclyn or Rachel and Nick?
You're honestly going to make me choose between these two? I can't do this. All I know is that one of them is going to quickly become my sugar mama.
Speculation before filming began led viewers to believe you would be on the show. What happened?
Right? Lol. I was down to the final week and I got a call saying that I was cut. I didn't really get it, but what can ya do?
Would you want to do the Pad in the future?
I really wanted to go on this season because my mind was in Bachelor mode. If the opportunity presented itself, the timing was right...and I was SINGLE, I could see myself considering.
What have you been up to since The Bachelor? We want the update!
I’m all over the place. Literally. I'm heading up the PR and social media for realbeanz, contributing to a new online publication called Nomad-chic, and writing about relationship pieces. They launch in August - it’s going to be a phenomenal site. I'm also blogging for Life and Style this season of The Bachelorette (#teamjef) and working on a new show called Take2 hosted by The TVSpot. I'll be co-hosting with Mike Kelton. If you don’t know him, look him up, promise you won't forget him. Life is great! But, I absolutely need to give more attention to dating because I really do want to share my life with someone. It gets boring alone. One step at a time...
