It really isn’t fair.The Bachelor and Bachelorette both run for about 11 weeks, but poor, sweet, little Bachelor Pad is just a six-week affair. A summer fling, if you will, that withers with the fall leaves. Or at least the fall season of Dancing With the Stars.

Bachelor Pad Season 2 began on August 8 and its six-week run should end on Monday, Sept. 12, which is the week before the premiere of DWTS Season 13. That’s how they handled it last season. Plus, spoiler king Reality Steve has already said the finale will be on Sept. 12. So between logic and spoilers that’s the day to mark on your calendar.

Unlike The Bachelor/ette, Bachelor Pad finales are not filmed months in advance, so the winner — or winners — is not only unspoiled, it is completely unknown even to the Padawans themselves. Who are the four finalists who will battle for the $250,000 on Sept. 12? Read Reality Steve’s episode-by-episode spoilers for details. He’s been right so far.
