The always awesome (but actually quite nasty) The Bachelor Pad returns to ABC on July 23! The Bachelor Pad offers past stars from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette a chance to come together, find
love bed partners, and compete for a $250,000 cash prize. One of the cast members for Bachelor Pad 3 is no other than Kalon McMahon. Kalon is the pompous luxury brand consultant who offended Emily Maynard when he referred to her daughter as “baggage.” Kalon talks about his experience on The Bachelor Pad and he has a connection to the mystery cast member!
Kalon McMahon had a better experience on The Bachelor Pad than he did on The Bachelorette. Taping of The Bachelor Pad recently ended, and Kahon talked about the his time with CultureMap.
“Seriously, it was like night and day compared to being on The Bachelorette,” Kalon says. “There’s no central character or plot line to the Bachelor Pad, so it’s not as manufactured. The show focuses on different people throughout the entire series, rather than on one specific person.”
So, Kalon’s not a one-woman kind of man? Is that what he’s saying? Even Kalon’s interviews are entertaining. Sounds like the Pad is definitely a better fit for his needs. Women, bikinis, and booze, oh my!
Also, “plot line” and “manufactured?” Interesting choice of words, especially since the Bachelor franchise is the real deal! (rolling my eyes!) I seriously cannot wait to watch him on The Bachelor Pad! He might be a jerk… misunderstood… pretentious… you choose, but he brought life to a rather boring Emily Maynard.
Kalon also says the other members of the cast admit they prejudged him based on his time on The Bachelorette.
“People in The Bachelor Pad house had a specific idea of who I was after seeing The Bachelorette, but after living with them for a day or so they started apologizing and saying things like ‘We feel terrible that we felt that way.’ In the end, we all got along well and I made some great friends,” Kalon revealed.
Aww, one big happy family! Well, almost. Probably at least one cast member did not make nice with Kalon. That would be the mystery man! When ABC announced the cast for Bachelor Pad 3, there was one name left off the list, because he was still in the running to be Mr. Emily Maynard.
It’s Chris Bukowski! Chris made it all the way to the final four on The Bachelorette. More importantly, Chris and Kalon did not get along.
Well played, ABC! Well played!
Bachelor Pad‘s mating season begins July 23rd on ABC!
