With the “Bachelor Pad” season 2 finale around the corner, it is no surprise that this week has been more about the rumors surrounding the finale than about the final four couples revealed on the most recent episode.


Reality Steve was the first to break news of the antics of the finale – including the alleged winners: Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst – but there are a few new pieces of juicy gossip that have since been circulating.

Sources claim there was a backstage brawl between two former “Bachelorette” contestants that stemmed from voting-gone-wrong. Tensions run high on this show, no doubt, thanks to the $250,000 grand prize, and things can become even more personal with a public vote, but viewers rarely anticipate two contestants duking it out in the back room. That’s exactly what happened, though, according to a source, after voting was cast, with Graham Bunn, who is allegedly a runner-up, punching in the face Justin “Rated R” Rego. Viewers never saw a voting deal go down between the two – in fact, Justin was voted out on episode one so it’s hard to imagine they would’ve ever found the time – but it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. And whereas Justin doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to honesty on TV, it doesn’t seem too farfetched to believe a deal was made at some point after filming.


And while female viewers of “Bachelor Pad” may not be so interested in a fight – unless perhaps it’s a catfight – we do love a romantic proposal. It was leaked earlier this week that “Bachelor Pad” couple Blake Julian and Holly Durst, who met on the show, is engaged, and now a source is saying the couple was offered a hefty sum to make it official – $25,000; the offer only came, however, after another couple (won’t be revealing which couple, but I’m sure you can guess) turned it down, the source claims.

Of course, to find out if any of this is true – except perhaps the fight – you’ll have to tune in to the “Bachelor Pad” season 2 finale, which airs Monday, Sept. 12. Will you be watching?
