Did the spelling bee feel long to you? It seems like it went on forever, but Rosemaster Chris Harrison says there’s a lot we didn’t get to see. In his Entertainment Weekly blog on Bachelor Pad Season 3, Episode 6, Chris dishes on the bee, the unhappy marriage of Nick Peterson to The Widow Rachel Truehart, the unexpected love between Kalon McMahon and Lindzi Cox, and whatever we’re calling the relationship between Jaclyn Swartz and Ed Swiderski.
Here are highlights from The Rosemaser’s full blog:
Kindzi “bee” suckin’ at spelling: “I was a bit disappointed you didn’t get to see and hear the best part of the spelling bee, the three judges. Our producers had very cleverly come up with amazingly entertaining definitions and sentences for each of the words. The kids read these to the contestants before they spelled each word, but that was edited out due to time constraints. So in the end you never really got to hear much from the kids from Hogwarts. I have to say I was pretty shocked at how the spelling bee played out. I thought Kalon and Lindzi would be really good, but in fact they sucked. It came down to the final two teams, and that sudden death spell-off actually took a while. I thought at one point we were going to run out of Bachelor words. But in the end, surprisingly, Chris and Sarah won the competition. As soon as they won, you could’ve heard a pin drop in that auditorium. The only thing you could hear, actually, was Blakeley starting to cry, as she desperately wanted Chris out of the house.”
Chris is proud of Jaclyn for speaking her mind: “Ed and Jaclyn also got a date this week for finishing second in the competition. This was perfect, as we got to hear Ed explain to Jaclyn that it’s been a real blast sleeping with you but, ‘I’m kinda, maybe into somebody else back home.’ He went on to explain that this is Bachelor Pad and we should continue to sleep together and have fun in this manner, and I would appreciate at the end of this if you could just forget it all and we could go our separate ways. For some reason Jaclyn, being a human being, didn’t exactly love this. I have to say I was pretty impressed with how she stuck up for herself and spoke her mind.”
Nick almost crashed and burned: “Rachel, who is now partners with Nick, really had to rebound and show people they were a team that could be trusted. Much to Rachel’s horror, Nick went off the rails a bit and almost sunk their chances of survival. Rachel later explained to Nick that this is why we don’t ever let him talk on Bachelor Pad. (Okay, I’m pretty sure she didn’t, but in my mind that’s what happened.) Despite Nick’s best effort to self-destruct, the group voted out lovebirds Kalon and Lindzi.”
Kalon and Lindzi had no alliance except with each other: “Their exit really said it all. Somehow these two polar opposites have come together and they found love. I personally think it’s great. Oddly enough, they really seem to bring out the best in each other and I wish the two of them well and look forward to getting an update on their relationship at the finale. As far as the game goes, Kalon and Lindzi played it pretty smart, just floating along and not really joining any particular alliance. But in the end that lack of loyalty cost them.”
Yeah, if you want to win, you eventually have to pick a side. It may not be the side with the nicest people but preferably it’s the side with the most power. Then again, Team Kindzi’s two-person alliance seems to be working out pretty well in real life. Love them!
