Bachelor Pad is a reality game show that airs on ABC. It features former contestants of the two shows as they compete to win 250,000 dollars. It is hosted by Chris Harrison. There was also a co-host in the first season - Melissa Rycroft. Like the shows that perpetuated this spin-off series, Bachelor Pad is at least partly a dating show. There are a disproportionate amount of men and women - 11 women and 8 men. They live together in a mansion, go on dates, choose dates, compete with each other and eliminate each other. In the end, it is a couple that takes home the prize. Their final challenge is to compete in a ballroom dancing competition with other bachelors and bachelorettes deciding the winners. The judges then vote on who deserves the money the most. In a twist that really tests the merit of the winning couple, there is a single additional challenge after they have been chosen to win the money. Each of the winners will be asked if they would like to keep the money for themselves or share it amicably between the two of them. If both say they will share it or only one chooses to keep the money, the money stays with the couple. However, if they both say they want to keep the money to themselves, they lose the money, which then goes to the losing contestants. Bachelor Pad first appeared in August of 2010 as a spin-off of the popular Bachelor and Bachelorette series. In most cases, contestants will continue on the show until they are eliminated or they win. However, in some cases, contestants will quit the show either for personal reasons or because of some drama on the show. The drama created by the romantic relationships, eliminations and quitting is the draw on this show and its two parent shows.
