I’m back to play matchmaker, and give my INSIDER opinion about which past and current contestants I think would make great couples in the future.

With “Bachelor Pad 2” just around the corner, it’s never too early to start keeping your friends close, and your lovers even closer.

With the exception of the current cast, I know the people I am writing about personally and I know that each and every one of them went on the show to really fall in love. So, if I can help make a little magic happen, then why not?

Let’s start off with Alli, the “Apparel Merchant” from my old stomping grounds, Columbus, Ohio… I think she seems super sweet and fun. I really like that she wasn’t afraid to be herself, or put her heart on the line, even if it led to Brad sending her home. I mean, come on… Most women on a date- especially one with video cameras- would be biting their tongues not to shriek about bugs or tiny bats. But Alli was as real as they get, and I respect her for that. I think she would make a super cute couple with my buddy Richard Mathy. He was the school teacher from the 4th season of “The Bachelorette.” There is just something about these two. I feel like if they met, it would be on like Donkey Kong, especially if they were locked in a house together on “Bachelor Pad 2.”

Another girl who was sent home last night was Jackie, the Artist from New York City… She may have flown a bit under the radar, but partly because she was too smart to get wrapped up in all the crazy drama. She seems very down to earth and reminds me of a close “Bachelor” friend of mine, Tara Durr. She was on “The Bachelor: Rome.” Recently, she too found love at a reunion with John Presser, who went home on the first night of Jillian’s season of “The Bachelorette.” Now, they’re married. (Wow, these reunions really are working!) Anyway, I hope to see Jackie on “Bachelor Pad 2.” I think she could really round out the cast and get along with anyone they pick, sort of like Peyton did. I think Jackie would make a great couple with my boy Tyler Vermette. He was the hard-partying marketing guru from Ali’s season of “The Bachelorette.” He didn’t make it too far with Ali, but maybe Jackie could straighten him out a bit. These two together would be better than a slice of NYC Cheesecake…

I’ll be back next week with new predictions and suggestions. Hey, who knows? Maybe some of these contestants will read this blog and give it a shot with each other.

But before I go, I have a huge announcement to make…

I have worn many hats in my time, ranging from being a Professional Snowboarder to Bachelor Contestant Extraordinaire. But the latest credit to add to the list is Dad!!

My wife Ann & I are proud to announce that we welcomed our first son, Noah Theodore Csincsak, into the world on February 2nd. He was 7 pounds and 2 ounces…and he is the love of our life…. I feel so blessed to have been led to my beautiful bride because of “The Bachelor” world… Without “The Bachelor,” I would have never have met my beautiful wife, Ann, at a reunion and we would not have had the opportunity to start our family. So, thanks Mike Fleiss & Next Entertainment. It means the world to me and I can never repay you.

And as a special thanks for reading my blog, here are some EXCLUSIVE PICS of me, my wife Ann, and our beautiful baby, Noah. You saw ‘em here first.

Tune in same place, same time, next week to get my insider’s opinion!

See Ya.
