Bachelor Pad Recap: Sex, Fug and Rocky Road

In case you were worried that ABC’s Monday-night crapsterpiece Bachelor Pad was going highbrow — all together now: “not me!” — this week’s episode featured a “Hot Sludge Fundae” obstacle course with a sack race/peanut slathering station that allowed host Chris Harrison to instruct the 16 remaining contestants to get in their “nut sacks.”

David and Rachel won immunity, and chose to bequeath roses of safety onto Jamie and Michael, respectively. This left Ed and Reid stirring up stale drama and trying to ensure the other man would be ousted. Meanwhile, it was either Blakeley (who I’m kinda starting to dig) and Donna (a common “fan”) who were trying to fend off elimination among the ladies. In the end, Reid and Donna saw their “underdog alliance” crumble, and were sent away in the limousines of shame. Everything else you need to know is captured via the ancient art of the screengrab, so click through the gallery, then share your thoughts on the week in Bachelor Pad.
