    This is competent reality fare, but coming after the besotted Ali and Roberto, it's like tying cans of nitroglycerin to a honeymooner's car. [23 Aug 2010, p.35]
  2. There is "love, hookups, backstabbing, cheating, scandals and crying," though not nearly enough to distract from the show's tedious obeisance to a formula that has become more familiar than the lyrics to "Happy Birthday."

    Bachelor Pad comes from a franchise that walks a fine line between sympathizing with and flat-out mocking its contestants. Clearly, the producers here favor the latter, and who could blame them? So much priceless material!

She seemed like the ideal next Bachelorette - I thought the most recent one they picked is too prickly. But Tenley comes off as less than together, a bit too bubble-headed, and often downright inappropriate - calling out her fellow contestant for having had sex with one of the guys. She's still a sweet girl, though just not ready for prime time. I also feel bad for Chris Harrison - he shouldn't have to host this show. Let the co-host carry the load on this spin-off. And I feel that ABC might be watering down their brand a bit too much by adding the big-brother-like competitions here. Full Review »
