Before we get to that, rose lovers, let’s discuss the big losers from this, the inaugural season of Bachelor Pad: Dignity. Human decency. Natural breasts. Oh, and so many, many others. But yes, a “winner” was declared tonight (or was it “winners”? I’ll never tell!), so if you haven’t seen the episode yet and don’t want the purity of this sacred occasion sullied by Interweb spoilers, whatever you do steer clear of the comments below. For the rest of us… Did we really just spend 12 hours of our lives watching this show? And did we really feel a gleeful thrill when the winner was announced — as if somehow the outcome was right and just? And by “we” do I really mean me? Yes on all counts! What about you, rose lovers? Were you happy with the finale? Are you aching for season 2? And most importantly of all, WHO should be the next Bachelor? (I’m voting for Jesse B…. just so they can call the season The Bachelor: Banana Appeal.) Check out my full Bachelor Pad recap for all the details of the finale, and don’t miss Chris Harrison’s exclusive Bachelor Pad blog. In the meantime, share your hopes and dreams below!
