One of the great — and totally inexplicable — things about Bachelor Pad is its ability to turn unlikely alumni into lasting couples. This time last year, we never would’ve imagined Holly Durst as Mrs. Blake Julian. But who knows, maybe by this time next year Blakeley Jones will be Mrs. Tony Pieper!

Like most of us, Chris Harrison never would’ve predicted a Tony/Blakeley love match on BP3 — but the more he thinks about it, the more it makes sense.

“She’s a vulnerable little girl and she kind of wants that guy who’s going to be just overly honest and protective and trustworthy and dependent,” Chris tells RumorFix. “And that’s him, he’s that dad, he’s the caretaker, and he’s taking care of her. They just quickly fell in love.”

The single dad does seem like a stand-up guy, and they seem to bring out the best in each other, so maybe this relationship is truly meant to be. We wish them a lifetime of roses!
