“Bachelor Pad” fans need to know that while the ABC reality show is great for tears and drama and cute couples, if you want the truth and above-all honesty, you’ve got to check out “Bachelor Pad Beatdown,” hosted by “Bachelorette” season 4 winner Jesse Csincsak and airing on RTVZone.com Tuesday nights.
“Bachelor Pad Beatdown” is a weekly series that features “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” alumni – Natalie Getz, David Good, Kiptyn Locke, Tenley Molzahn, Trista Sutter, Wes Hayden – just to name a few – giving their honest opinions of Monday’s episode of “Bachelor Pad,” and here is why it will be your new favorite show!
5. Bachelor Pad Beatdown Countdown with Richard Mathy
You may have to dig deep in your brain to remember Richard Mathy, but once you see him on “Bachelor Pad Beatdown,” he’ll be hard to forget. The New Yorker was featured on DeAnna Pappas season of “The Bachelorette” but was eliminated during the third week. Now, he is featured at the beginning of “Bachelor Pad Beatdown” with his countdown of the week, which is always hilarious. On the premiere, Richard was counting down the best fake female, um, “personalities” of “Bachelor Pad,” and boy, did he hit the nail on the head! Richard is a definite “Beatdown” keeper, and with how dramatic this season of “Bachelor Pad” looks to be, I can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve!
4. Rough – in a good way
For those of you who have heard of the “Beatdown” series but haven’t seen it, I warn you to beware of how rough it is. It’s done completely via webcams and sometimes there are a few technical issues that pop up. The alumni participate from wherever they can – seriously, Wes, where on Earth were you this week? – and sometimes they forget/don’t realize their mics are on. So, why would I love that about “Bachelor Pad Beatdown”? Because anything can happen – and anything does happen! “Bachelor Pad Beatdown” is like watching a conversation between “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” alumni; it isn’t the over-produced reunion specials we’re used to (e.g., “Real World,” “Jersey Shore,” etc.) – thank God!
3. Wes Hayden
I’m the first to admit that I was not a Wes Hayden fan when he was on Jillian Harris’ season of “The Bachelorette.” I, like most of America, thought he was the absolute scum of the Earth. BUT – and this is a giant but – I take back every nasty word, well almost every nasty word, I’ve ever said about him after seeing him on “The Bachelorette Beatdown” and “Bachelor Pad Beatdown.” Wes is who he is, and he is not afraid to tell you what is on his mind. He also is much funnier than we ever saw on “Bachelorette.” Sometimes the things that come out of his mouth leave me shocked yet uncontrollably laughing. I beg you “Bachelorette” fans, give Wes a second chance, not because he cares if you do but because he is a can’t-miss piece of “Bachelor Pad Beatdown.”
2. Insiders’ perspectives
The alumni that participated in “The Bachelorette Beatdown” had great insights into “The Bachelorette” because they knew what it was like to be in the position of either Ashley Hebert, or the bachelors, or both. What makes their insights of “Bachelor Pad Beatdown” so much better is that they know some – not all but some – of the cast members. They let viewers know whether someone is putting on an act or being themselves, and they help viewers separate reality from reality TV, which, I hate to admit it, sometimes we viewers really need.
1. Total honesty
The absolute most amazing thing about “Bachelor Pad Beatdown” is the total honest of the alumni. Their comments are at times unbelievable harsh, and they can cross the line a time or two, but no doubt they are saying exactly what is on all of our minds while we watch at home. This show has no relation to ABC, so these alumni finally have the chance to speak their minds and let it all out. These are the things you want them to say, not the run-around viewers tend to get on “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” specials. A great example of this is David Good, who let loose on Jake Pavelka (in a good way, sort of) during the premiere. He didn’t have the nicest things to say about Jake, but I couldn’t help but cheer him on and say, “You’re completely right, David!” while he was talking. Honestly, “Bachelor Pad Beatdown” – and “The Bachelorette Beatdown” – is exactly what viewers have always wanted.
Now that you’ve read what you’re going to love about “Bachelor Pad Beatdown,” head over to RTVZone.com to check it out for yourself. On the premiere, you’ll see favorite “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” alumni talk about the ups, downs and over-the-top nonsense that is “Bachelor Pad” season 2, including Justin “Rated R” Rego, the Jake Pavelka/Vienna Girardi/Kasey Kahl drama, and the power couples of this season.
