Last week on Bachelor Pad 3, bachelors and bachelorettes, along with viewers, breathed a sigh of relief when whiny twins Erica and Brittany left in tears in the early morning hours.

Ryan was the one chosen to leave for the guys. Who will be eliminated tonight on Bachelor Pad 3? Will any more bachelors or bachlorettes find love? Read on in our Bachelor Pad 2012 recap for episode 3 and find out with us!
WARNING: BACHELOR PAD 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD!
This post contains Bachelor Pad 2012 spoilers from episode 2. Please stop reading here if you do not want to know what happened or who was eliminated on Bachelor Pad 3 Monday night.
Tonight we may see another drama unfold on Bachelor Pad 2012. We’ve been waiting for the explosion of a brewing battle between Reid Rosenthal, and the guy who took bachelorette Jillian Harris away from him–Ed Surderski. Plus, we hear in Bachelor Pad 2012 spoilers for tonight’s episode that Kalon McMahon will have some more nasty things to say about the anti-girl of his dreams, Erica Rose.
So tonight we see after the rose ceremony Reid Rosenthal sweating it a bit, as he tried to get Ed Swiderski voted off. Sarah Newlon is angry at herself since she was talked into voting for Ed. Ed is freaked out about his friends turning on him and thinks about just going home. Jaclyn Swartz tries to talk him out of that, but he isn’t sure that he can compete with the lying and back-stabbing.
Ed decides to stay and join the group in a Bachelor Pad 3 obstacle choice challenge. It’s a Hot Sludge Fun Day, complete with crawling through ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and chopped nuts—with a cherry to eat at the end. Couples are assigned randomly–including Kalon McMahon with his anti-dream girl, Erica Rose–and here we go! The hot fudge slide looks fun but slippery. Jamie Otis gets to the end first, where the guys are waiting to do the obstacle course in reverse. The ending is too close to call between Michael Stagliano and David Mallet. Ed has blown Jamie’s lead as he slips and slides up the hot fudge slide.
Chris Bukowski, besides being way behind, puts it on to pass Ed to avoid last place. Ed is disappointed that he doesn’t finish, and he and Jamie have a vote against them. After reviewing the video, Chris Harrison announces the winners: Rachel Trueheart and David Mallet by a nose.
David is feeling powerful and not like a fan anymore. For his three girl date, he chooses Blakeley Jones, Erica Rose, and Jamie Otis. Chris is excited that the drama queens will be out of the house for the night.
The ladies are excited when they see the Prom date that is set up for them. Still, there’s some fussing in the dressing room, as Blakely makes it clear that she is not there to be friends, despite Jamie’s attempts to call a truce.
Everybody has a blast, complete with photo shoot and dancing. David kisses Jamie during their photos, which brings Blakeley’s claws out. Jamie pours on the tears for David since she’s on the chopping block and needs a rose. Then Blakeley threatens David that he had better keep his loyalty to her. Blakeley is upset as David picks Jamie for his prom queen.
Back at the mansion, Reid is working to get Ed’s trust, not letting him know that he was the one who turned votes against him. Reid admits he is the “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” At another wild party that night, Sarah is shocked to see a drunk Ed carry Jaclyn off to his boudoir.
Rachel chooses her three guys next: Nick Peterson, Tony Pieper, and her apparent love interest, Michael. Chris was hoping to get chosen to avoid being left at home in the midst of the Blakely and Jamie war.
Rachel and the guys find themselves at a wax museum. The wax figures are incredibly alive. Then there’s a section called “The Bachelor Experience” for Bachelor Pad 2012, where supposed wax figure Chris Harrison comes to life and freaks them out. The four from Bachelor Pad 3 are then made up to look like wax figures in order to mess with touring fans.
At the house, Blakely and Chris talk, then Chris escapes to go to bed. Jamie wants to fall in love on TV and decides to join Chris in bed for some fun. Chris says no and tells her, “It’s not you; it’s me.” Oh, what a line! Jamie expresses her frustration before taking off disappointed to cry to the camera.
Meanwhile, Bachelor Pad 3 wax figure exhibits Rachel, Michael, Nick, and Tony are motionless. The fans pose for a picture with them until the figures move and scare them. Fun night with the fans! And the rose goes to . . . Michael, of course! The couple is realizing that Bachelor Pad 2012 is turning into something for them more than money. Michael reassures Rachel that she shouldn’t be insecure, that he felt “warm fuzzies” when he first kissed her. He assures her he isn’t going anywhere.
Alliances are forming, and Sarah feels it’s her responsibility to tell Ed what is going on. She spills the beans about Reid planning to vote Ed off. Ed feels betrayed and surprised since Reid is one of his best friends. Ed later confronts Reid about lying to him, and Reid denies it, boldly saying that Ed is not one of the people he wants to get rid of. Bold-faced lie!
The underdogs, according to Erica, have aligned to break up the strong couple alliances. That means that Erica is shockingly in with super fans, David and Donna Zitelli, along with Tony and Nick. Tensions are high and the house is quieter than usual. Blakeley is afraid for her safety and isn’t sure that she trusts Chris. Tony and Michael try to assure Blakeley that she isn’t going home. Michael tells the camera that super fan Donna is going home, but Erica reassures her that Kalon and Lindzi Cox are on their side, too.
Woah! There was some surprise smooching that occurred between Nick and Donna when he was comforting her. Their sudden romance may be short-lived, as swing vote Kalon, who has told both parties what they want to hear, is the deciding vote for Donna’s future.
Reid makes Jaclyn burst into tears when he talks about their being partners when Ed is gone. Jaclyn stands up for Ed, who she says has never betrayed anyone. She hates the game, while cool-hand Reid is unaffected, saying there is nothing that can be done. When Ed confronts him, Reid states that there are other people involved who have been lying. Nobody wants Ed to go, says Reid, but it’s a game. Oh, Reid, this is getting old. Sarah is the swing vote; who will she decide needs to leave the Bachelor Pad 2012? Will she vote against Ed again this week?
At a tense rose ceremony, David and Rachel hand out the roses. Erica is safe first, for once. Kalon is called, followed by his girl, Lindzi. Chris is safe, as is Sarah. Tony is called and then Jaclyn and Nick. No surprises so far, as we wait for the final names. Blakely wins out over super fan Donna, while a betrayed Ed wins out over a dumbfounded Reid. Jaclyn speaks up to say how the dishonesty has been transparent and they all need to think about how they are playing things. A sad Donna leaves while Reid laughs, saying “It’s a game.”
Donna feels like the guys are going to regret her not being around in her bikini. They probably will! Reid notes that the Bachelor Pad 2012 is a nightmare, with the game always fluid and changing.
The nightmare continues next week on the Bachelor Pad 2012 as the deceit continues with Kalon and Chris spearheading the lying game. It’s sure to be a lot of fun!
