Meet the contestants on BACHELOR PAD 3!
The 20 contestants set to lay it all on the line for love and/or money are:
LINDZI COX ("The Bachelor" Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
Lindzi has not been heard from since she was rejected by Ben Flajnik
on that fateful day. She was heartbroken and buried herself in work and
her passion, horses. But, Lindzi is determined to move on. She does not
care for anyone that gossips and is ready to compete for money and love.
Occupation: Development Manager Age: 27 Residence: Bellevue, WA
BLAKELEY JONES ("The Bachelor" Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
Last time, Blakeley did not get along with the women in the house. She
admits that she probably could have done a better job of making
friends, but now she is not here to make friends. Blakeley is here to
win all the money.
Occupation: Estherician Age: 34 Residence: Charlotte, NC
SARAH NEWTON ("The Bachelor" Season 11, Brad Womack)
This girl does not want her 15 minutes of fame to end. She is single
and ready to mingle, and eager to get in the mansion to hang out with
the hot single men. A friend of Erica Rose, she knows she needs to do
anything to stay in "Bachelor Pad." Sharing the mansion with Reid should
also be interesting since Sarah shared an intimate kiss with Reid while
he had a girlfriend.
Occupation: Bar Manager Age: 28 Residence: St. Louis, MO
JAMIE OTIS ("The Bachelor" Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
The last time we saw Jamie, she had an awkward kiss with Ben before
being sent home. Jamie has made a lot of changes since she has been on
the show. She was the mother figure to her siblings and when she got
home, she realized that her siblings were growing up and can live
without her. For once, she is living her life as her own. Jamie also
thinks Jaclyn is toxic.
Occupation: Registered Nurse Age: 25 Residence: New York, NY
ERICA ROSE ("The Bachelor" Season 9, Prince Lorenzo Borghese)
Erica was a presence on "Bachelor Pad 2," speaking the truth and
stirring the pot. But after being voted off and sent back home to her
parents, she is ready to return and win the money all for herself. She
also has a love/hate relationship with Kalon, who is from her hometown.
Occupation: Law Student Age: 29 Residence: Houston, TX
JACLYN SWARTZ ("The Bachelor" Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
Jaclyn is super competitive, smart, manipulative but well liked
amongst the cast, despite being a self-proclaimed mean girl. This
smart-mouthed woman will tell it like it is, but still stay on
everyone's good side to ensure that she is kept in the house. However,
Jaclyn thinks Rachel Trueheart wants to be just like her.
Occupation: Account Manager Age: 27 Residence: Newton, MA
RACHEL TRUEHEART ("The Bachelor" Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
Rachel narrowly escaped going home on the 2-on-1 with Blakeley, but
still remained closed off, which ultimately led to her demise. Now she
is back, and finally open to love – and even more open to taking home a
lot of money. However, this could all be challenging since Jaclyn gets
really annoyed with Rachel.
Occupation: Executive Assistant Age: 27 Residence: New York, NY
BRITTANY AND ERICA TALTOS (Super Fans)
These two are the definition of double the trouble and double the fun.
They are in it for the money and maybe to find a guy, but nothing
serious. Erica has the reputation for being the smarter, more
conservative twin. She is still a virgin and has not dated much.
Brittany, however, could not be more opposite of Erica, she is the
flirtatious, boy-crazy twin. As fans, the twins think Erica is snobby,
boring and not pretty.
Occupation: Students Age: 22 Residence: Gainesville, FL
PAIGE VIGIL (Super Fan)
As a dedicated fan of " The Bachelor," Paige has preconceived
notions of all previous cast members from writing " The Bachelor" recaps
in her college newspaper and admits she will be a bit star-struck. She
may look sweet and innocent, but do not underestimate her because Paige
will use her knowledge of the cast to her advantage. Though she will put
up a good fight for the money, she ultimately hopes to find the love of
her life and settle down.
Occupation: Jumbo Tron Operator Age: 24 Residence: New York, NY
DONNA ZITELLI (Super Fan)
This sight for sore eyes is a trifecta of beauty, personality and
brains. Donna graduated third in her class, and loves drawing and
writing songs. She knows people underestimate her intelligence because
of her beauty – little do they know she has no problem playing it up and
using her beauty and brains to win the money. Donna would love to go on
a date with Michael Stagliano.
Occupation: Student Age: 22 Residence: Hackensack, NJ
RYAN HOAG ("The Bachelorette" Season 4, DeAnna Pappas)
Ryan is a person who stands strong in his beliefs and is one to let it
be known. He did not find love on DeAnna's season, and is not going on
"Bachelor Pad" to find it either – he is here for the money. But, he is
by far one of the more handsome men in the mansion and will be an object
of desire – could a possible love interest distract him from winning
the cash or will he stay focused on the prize?
Occupation: High School Dean/Former NFL Player Age: 32 Residence: Minneapolis, MN
KALON MCMAHON ("The Bachelorette" Season 8, Emily Maynard)
Kalon was the villain on Emily's season. But at least he was honest.
Maybe Kalon is not ready to settle down, but he is ready to dominate
those inferior to him. He will charm the women, he will compliment the
men and he will go all the way to the end just to keep the money all to
himself. Plus, he is frenemies with Erica Rose.
Occupation: Luxury Brand Consultant Age: 27 Residence: Houston, TX
NICK PETERSON ("The Bachelorette" Season 7, Ashley Hebert)
Nick never really made much of an impression on Ashley. He was too
reserved and too concerned that he would make a fool of himself. As a
result, he never got the chance for love. He finally found his footing
at "The Men Tell All" and now he is ready to show America and all of
"Bachelor Nation" who he is. And, he is going to use his body to make
sure no one votes him off.
Occupation: Trainer Age: 27 Residence: Tampa, FL
TONY PIEPER ("The Bachelorette" Season 8, Emily Maynard)
Tony temporarily left his son to be with the one girl he truly
believed was meant for him, Emily. After having his heart broken on "The
Bachelorette," he realized that there is more out there for him and is
ready to find his true love.
Occupation: Lumber Trader Age: 30 Residence: Portland, OR
REID ROSENTHAL ("The Bachelorette" Season 5, Jillian Harris)
Reid is most remembered as coming back to propose to Jillian after she
had already rejected him – only to be rejected all over again. He
later found love with his long-term girlfriend of several years, with
whom he just recently ended things. Plus, when he was still with his
girlfriend, he hooked up with Sarah Newton, who is now living with him
in "Bachelor Pad." At this point, Reid is unsure what he wants out of
life when it comes to career, love, and money and hopes to figure this
out in "Bachelor Pad."
Occupation: Realtor Age: 33 Residence: Philadelphia, PA
MICHAEL STAGLIANO ("The Bachelorette" Season 5, Jillian Harris, "Bachelor Pad 2")
Last time Michael came on "Bachelor Pad," he got the money. But sadly
for him, money cannot buy happiness. Soon after taking the win, he found
out that his ex-fiance, Holly, was engaged to Blake. This time, he is
not going to even think about the game or the money. He is just here to
meet the girl of his dreams.
Occupation: Entrepreneur Age: 27 Residence: Sherman Oaks, CA
ED SWIDERSKI ("The Bachelorette" Season 5, Jillian Harris)
Ed won Jillian's love and got down on bended knee, but it did not
last. They gave it their all, they have no regrets, but now he is single
again. He found love on "The Bachelorette," so why could he not find it
on "Bachelor Pad?"
Occupation: Technology Consultant Age: 33 Residence: Chicago, IL
CHRIS BAIN (Super Fan)
Chris is an animated, good ole' country boy from Georgia. He
thoroughly enjoys rush-kicking in doors, taking down criminals and
flashing his tats. He is very similar to a 90's action movie hero in
that he wants what every hero wants – the money and pretty girl on his
arm. Chris hopes to leave "Bachelor Pad" with both.
Occupation: SWAT Team Officer Age: 28 Residence: Canton, GA
DAVID MALLET(Super Fan)
David is a fan of the show, but an even bigger fan of women and money.
As an MMA fighter, David feels right at home being competitive and has
earned the name "Kamikaze" because when he fights he either wins or dies
trying. "Bachelor Pad" is the perfect arena where he will be able to
dominate in both fields. He would like to hook up with Lindzi.
Occupation: Real Estate Agent/ MMA Fighter Age: 28 Residence: Hoboken, NJ
