Bachelor Pad 2: Michael Stagliano Reacts To Holly’s Engagement

September 13, 2011 10:36 AM by Megan Thompson


If you haven’t heard by now Bachelor Pad 2 contestants Holly Durst and Blake Julian are definitely engaged.  Holly’s ex-fiancé, Michael Stagliano, learned of the engagement for the first time on national TV – ouch!  Keep reading to find out what Michael has to say about the whole situation unfolding on national TV.     

It was a bittersweet night for Michael Stagliano who actually won the grand prize, but lost his love on the show.  If you watched the Bachelor Pad 2 finale Michael was shocked when he learned Holly and Blake were engaged.  Who wouldn’t be shocked and angry to learn their ex-fiancé is engaged again, especially on national TV?  Michael took the high road and graciously congratulated the couple and told them he just really wants Holly to be happy.  Of course he jokingly asked, “Can I get some water or something?”  Considering how much he still loves Holly he really handled the situation remarkably well. 

Today Michael is now sharing all the thoughts that were racing through his head when he heard of the engagement news.  Michael told People, “I was caught off guard, humiliated. I know neither Holly nor Blake wanted it to go down like that.”  Holly shares that she did try to tell Michael before they went on the show, but says she wasn’t allowed to speak with him before going on stage.  Holly felt absolutely horrible about telling Michael on national TV and says, “He was blindsided. That was the lowest thing they could have done for ratings.”

As for Michael he says he will always care for Holly, “I wish we could have been happy together but we’re always going to care about and love each other. “  

Do you believe that Holly didn’t have time to tell Michael about the engagement?  Let us know which team you are on – team Michael or team Blake?  We know you have an opinion, so comment below!

    I do not believe that Holly had no time to tell Michael about her engagement to Blake. Michael, it is for the best dude! Don’t trip though cuz there are plenty of fish in the sea!

    Personally, I am on team Michael. Sure, everyone is free to make their own choices but to be blindsided on national tv was horrible. And I don’t know when the engagement footage was shot, but something tells me that there was time to let Michael in on this. Shameful.

    These people are not in absolute confinement, they have rights, no one is holding a gun to their heads. Why do these people think decorum and common sense no longer apply just because a camera is present? Holly could have and should have handled this differently. I like Michael and hope he finds a nice lady (nicer than impish tease Holly), but all of them are fools for even getting into the situation in the first place. And I am a fool for watching.
