Bachelor Pad's Chris Bukowski Defends His Lies

Originally posted 08/18/2012 07:00PM

In The Bachelor world, Chris Bukowski, 25, has taken over for Kalon as public enemy No. 1. But the Chicagoan defended his women-juggling, lying and general cockiness as necessary qualities to win Bachelor Pad during a recent conference call about the show.

The Chris on the The Bachelorette seems very different than the Chris we see on Bachelor Pad.
I definitely took a totally different approach. On Emily Maynard's season, I was there for love, was close to finding it, it didn't work out and I was heartbroken.

A little of the way I acted on Bachelor Pad was because I was hurt by that. There was only one thing on my mind – the money.

Bachelor Pad's Jaclyn Swartz Talks Money (Yes), Love (No) and Ed (Maybe)

Jaclyn Swartz: I'm Still in Bachelor Pad for Money, Not Love

Originally posted 08/14/2012 07:30AM

Self-proclaimed Massachusetts mean girl Jaclyn Swartz came to Bachelor Pad with dollar signs in her eyes and disgust for Blakely in her heart.

But now Swartz, 27, admits the game show and her "default partnership" with Ed Swiderski changed her for the better. Not that she doesn't still want the prize money, as she tells PEOPLE.

Did you come for love, money or both?
My main focus was winning the money. Never in a million years would I think that it's a game for love.

Bachelor Pad: Ed Swiderski Feels Betrayed by Reid Rosenthal

Originally posted 08/06/2012 02:45PM

Ed Swiderski spent the first two Bachelor Pad episodes drinking, belching, swimming naked, hooking up loudly and making Chris Harrison's eyes roll.

But being in the bottom two was a giant wakeup call for Jillian Harris's former flame, 33, who declared during a conference call that playtime is over and Reid, who is consipiring against him (watch a clip of Monday's episode below), better watch out.

Were you really sweating bullets about being voted off?
Every bone in my body thought that I was going home. It was the weirdest feeling ever because [while] it sounds egotistical, I never felt that way on The Bachelorette. I was shocked. I thought these people were trustworthy. I packed my bags and didn't want to be there thinking, "Maybe this isn't the right place for me."

Let the backstabbing begin.

As some of the most familiar (and infamous) faces from the The Bachelor and the The Bachelorette make their way to the Bachelor Pad for its third season, the behind-the-back drama kicks off right away with the arrivals.

In a new clip of the show (watch below), which premieres Monday (8 p.m. EST) on ABC, Jaclyn Swartz and Rachel Truehart, who vied for Ben Flajnik's affection on the 16th season of The Bachelor, are none too thrilled to give Blakely Jones a warm welcome.

"She makes me tense," Swartz tells Truehart. "She's not a normal person."

Get ready for some drama!

The new cast of ABC's guilty pleasure Bachelor Pad 3 was announced Thursday morning – and some of the most infamous former contestants from the match-making series are among them.

First off, last season's winner Michael Stagliano, who witnessed his former fiancée Holly Durst fall in love with Blake Julian during the summer 2011 production, will be back. (Durst and Julian tied the knot on June 2.)

Stagliano is hoping to repeat his victory while competing against current Bachelorette villain Kalon McMahon, who Emily Maynard sent packing on Monday's show after he referred to her 6-year-old daughter Ricki as "baggage."

Also setting up house this season: Ed Swiderski, who proposed to season five Bachelorette star Jillian Harris, and Reid Rosenthal.
