"I hope she falls 3,000 feet to her death."
That's one of the Jake Pavelka quotes featured in the promos for season 2 of Bachelor Pad (premiering Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC). So,who do you think he's referring to? Could it possibly be his ex-fiancée Vienna Girardi -- the Bachelor contestant who won his heart and then his hatred a couple seasons back?
ABC sure knows how to entice viewers to check out this reality competition, which pits former contestants against one another in a series of dating-and-sex-related challenges for a $250,000 cash prize. A sample challenge? In one episode, the men will be shooting paint balls at the bikini-clad women, who will have targets on their rear ends. Yes, it's that classy.
The show has cast both Pavelka and Girardi -- title holders of the show's most explosive and rancorous breakup. Joining them will be Girardi's new boyfriend, the dim-witted Kasey Kahl, who embarrassed himself during season 6 of The Bachelorette by getting a tattoo in Ali Fedotowsky's honor -- and getting dumped by her soon thereafter. Per the promo, Kahl wants to punch Pavelka in the face.
In her second Bachelor Pad go-round, Gia Allemand will no doubt stir up trouble, given her friendship with Pavelka and professed dislike of Girardi. And remember the guy who walked off Ali's season after she discovered that he had a girlfriend back home? Yeah, Justin "Rated R" Rego will be there, too. So Pavelka will also have competition on the "who's the biggest jerk?" front.
Of course, Pavelka's message in promotional interviews has been all teddy bears and rainbows. Interviewed on Access Hollywood, Pavelka says he joined the show for some closure with Giraradi. Apparently, he didn't want their final on-screen meeting to feature him screaming at her to shut her mouth.
Let's see if he can do it!
