The Bachelor Pad finale is finally here, and 2012 is turning out to be arguably the most dramatic season of the three that have aired on ABC since this part of the Bachelor franchise started.
With that said, and with some spoilers and a few predictions in store for all watchers who want to know a little about what is about to happen, Chris Harrison sums up BP3 by calling it "scary" and dubbing the finale "disturbing."
So why did the host with the most say such a thing?
According to a new interview, Harrison commented on the last program that will air this year that is already in the can, saying, "....we all just were stunned and speechless at the end of the show."
He added, "I don't even know how they could edit just two hours. There were so much, so many stories, and there was so much drama, and there was so much emotion..."
Then, when it was time to give out the money to the winner(s), Harrison said, "...once we did that, we had that intrigue and that drama. It was a wild night."
And it will be a wild night tonight when, allegedly, Rachel and Nick beat out Chris and Sarah for the chance to divide the money or keep it, depending on how they decide to answer the call to this cash as is defined by how Bachelor Pad rules work. The fact that Nick (note: spoiler alert for those not in the know) gets it all is a definite shocker.
Meanwhile, Harrison hints that Nick is quite possibly "a quiet genius" in terms of how he ended up at the top of the heap. The Rose Master rhetorically asks in an interview, "What did he do to really earn his [place in the finals]?"
Well, fans can say that since he played the game under the radar, he wasn't scrutinized as much as say, Chris Bukowski, who was out there and after just about every woman on the show. Also, Rachel was so obviously there for Michael Stagliano and not for the game, per se, that she really let him call the shots rather than doing that herself. Some could say she was that easily led.
Speaking of Stagliano, allegedly this reality show player gets aggressive tonight during the BP3 finale. Just what his justification for that kind of attitude is will be revealed, but here's a sneak peek as this sort of temperament comes into play on Monday's show.
And so, as Chris Harrison calls the Bachelor Pad 2012 finale "Emmy worthy," even more drama obviously comes into play beyond who wins the game. There's that proposal that everyone's been talking about (ahem, right Blakely?), and there's the relationship(?) between Kalon and Lindzi, with those two showing (telling) how things are going with them.
So, count on an exciting night tonight on ABC. As Harrison put it, "[The BP 2012 ending] is emotional, and it is disturbing. It is an incredible finale. It may be two of the best hours that [the powers that be] ever produced in the 10 years that [they have] been doing [The Bachelor] franchise. It may be the best show... ever put on the air."
Talk about a huge endorsement for switching the channel to Bachelor Pad even if football is what's on at the moment. After all, this 2012 finale could become the show that gets the most water cooler talk than anything else come Tuesday morning. You never know, do you?
