It’s the final countdown! (Do do do do. Do-do-do-do-do!) On the three-hour Bachelor Pad 2 season finale this Monday, Sept. 12, the final four couples will show off their acrobatic powers in a Cirque du Soleil routine judged by former Bachelor Jason Mesnick (Season 13) and Bachelorettes Trista Sutter (Season 1) and  Ali Fedotowsky (Season 6). The judges will eliminate one pair, and the challenge winners will choose who joins them in the finale, where one of them will win $250,000. Also on the finale, we’ll *officially* meet the Season 16 Bachelor: Ben Flajnik!

Here are details from ABC on Monday’s Episode 6:

What happens in Vegas...

Our remaining four couples – Vienna & Kasey, Michelle & Graham, Ella & Kirk and Holly & Michael – are summoned to Las Vegas to compete [and]  will have 24 hours to master a terrifying Cirque du Soleil routine that takes professionals six months to learn. [...] Their difficult, unique routines will be performed high on [a 100-foot wall]. The couple that gives the best performance, as judged by the panel composed of Trista, Jason and Ali, receives the roses and a guaranteed place in the finale. The lowest scoring couple will be sent home immediately.

…scares the crap out of everyone in Vegas

Ella must overcome her crippling fear of falling. Michelle starts to feel sick, but will she be able to continue her training? Will Vienna & Kasey’s overconfidence interfere with their routine? And Michael must learn to put his emotions aside as he tries to compete with Holly as a couple. There are remarkable performances, but one couple dazzles everyone with their final moves and wins the roses. After careful deliberation, one devastated couple is sent home.

Finale reunion!

The final three couples return to Los Angeles, where the winning couple decides who will join them in the finale. All the former housemates of this season’s Bachelor Pad are reunited to vote on which of the final two couples deserves to win the money. What will happen when Jake confronts Vienna & Kasey? How will Melissa react to seeing Blake again? Will Michael be able to handle Blake and Holly’s emotional reunion? But the most important question is who will walk away $250,000 richer?
