Bachelor Pad: A Look Back at the Show’s Impact & Where the Contestants Are Now

“Bachelor Pad,” a precursor to “Bachelor in Paradise,” aired for three seasons starting in August 2010, featuring contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” competing for love and a $250,000 prize, with a memorable twist in the final prize distribution. Despite its end, the show facilitated notable relationships, including Holly Durst and Blake Julian’s successful marriage, amidst the drama and strategic gameplay that defined its run.

“Bachelor Pad,” a precursor to “Bachelor in Paradise,” aired for three seasons starting in August 2010, featuring contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” competing for love and a $250,000 prize, with memorable moments including a controversial win by Nick Peterson in season 3, and while many couples formed, only Holly Durst and Blake Julian’s relationship lasted, marrying in 2012 and adopting a daughter in 2019.

Oh, remember Bachelor Pad? Kicked off in August 2010, this show was a whole vibe for three wild seasons. Then, Bachelor in Paradise swooped in, stealing the spotlight. Yet, Bachelor Pad? Unforgettable.

The setup was juicy. Contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette came together. But here’s the kicker: it wasn’t just about finding love. Nope, they were duking it out for a cool $250,000. Talk about high stakes!

Drama peaked when the final two got split up. Each holed up in their own deliberation room, they faced a choice: share the dough or try to snag it all. If both were greedy? The losers got the cash. Oh, the suspense!

Season 1 champs, Natalie Getz and David Good, went the nice route, splitting the prize. Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano did the same in season 2. But season 3? Nick Peterson pulled a fast one on Rachel Truehart, pocketing everything. Cue the outrage.

Despite the scheming and backstabbing, love blossomed. Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke, Ames Brown and Jackie Gordon… they all found something. But real-world staying power? That honor goes to Holly and Blake Julian. Met in season 2, married by 2012, and adopted baby Poppy in 2019 after a tough infertility struggle.

Wondering where these Bachelor Pad alums ended up? Scroll down, and let’s catch up on their journeys.
