Expect to hear some interesting stories after this weekend. As Reality Steve noted in his column on Tuesday, January 17, The Bachelor franchise is holding its annual reunion this Saturday night:

"You know how last year it was in NY, and we got to see the footage at the 'Women Tell All' of the Gia/Vienna/Wes triangle, guys hitting on Rozlyn, and hookups galore? Well, this year they figured they’d move it to a city more appropriate for this type of debauchery – Las Vegas. It’s gonna be at the Mirage Hotel, red carpet event and all. Yeah, don’t think for a second these people are passing on a chance to get their pictures taken on a fake red carpet either. No chance. It’s called a ‘reunion,’ but essentially it’s a casting audition for Bachelor Pad 3. So whoever’s going, if you want on next season bad enough, go to Vegas, get as schnockered as you can, give some hilariously drunk ITM’s, and hook up with somebody. Hell, hook up with numerous people. That’ll pretty much assure your spot on BP3."

Don't look for any of Ben Flajnik's beauties to be at the reunion, even though several of them will probably be cast on BP3, just like four girls from BP2 were from Brad Womack's season, even though none of them were at the January 2011 reunion.

"I would also expect Ben’s girls will have the most representation on Bachelor Pad 3 than any other season for the girls,” Steve wrote.

Oh goodie. Have you seen our early BP3 dream cast? We haven’t met any of the guys from The Bachelorette Season 8 yet, but we have five Bachelor 16 ladies on there — including Shawntel Newton. So far there seems to be support out there for Shawntel on BP3.
