“Bachelor Pad: The Final Challenge” — Our remaining four couples – Vienna & Kasey, Michelle & Graham, Ella & Kirk and Holly & Michael – are summoned to Las Vegas to compete in the most daring competition in “Bachelor Pad” history. They will have 24 hours to master a terrifying Cirque du Soleil routine that takes professionals six months to learn. Trista Sutter, Jason Mesnick and Ali Fedotowsky will judge the couples’ acrobatic expertise, eliminating one pair. The winning couple will choose who will join them in the finale, on “Bachelor Pad: The Final Challenge,” MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Then immediately following “The Final Challenge,” the two remaining couples will be joined by all their past housemates, who will return to vote on which couple deserves the $250,000. Find out who will win, on the season finale of ABC’s “Bachelor Pad,” MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Viewers also will be introduced to the new Bachelor, as Chris Harrison interviews the next man to look for love on ABC’s hit romance reality series next January.
Once in Las Vegas at the Cirque du Soleil Ka’s Theater at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, the remaining four couples are confronted by a menacing 100-foot wall. Their difficult, unique routines will be performed high on the giant wall itself. The couple that gives the best performance, as judged by the panel composed of Trista, Jason and Ali, receives the roses and a guaranteed place in the finale. The lowest scoring couple will be sent home immediately.
After practicing practically all night with the Cirque du Soleil trainers, the pressure is on to put all fear aside and perform in front of the judges. Ella must overcome her crippling fear of falling. Michelle starts to feel sick, but will she be able to continue her training? Will Vienna & Kasey’s overconfidence interfere with their routine? And Michael must learn to put his emotions aside as he tries to compete with Holly as a couple. There are remarkable performances, but one couple dazzles everyone with their final moves and wins the roses. After careful deliberation, one devastated couple is sent home.
The final three couples return to Los Angeles, where the winning couple decides who will join them in the finale. All the former housemates of this season’s “Bachelor Pad” are reunited to vote on which of the final two couples deserves to win the money. What will happen when Jake confronts Vienna & Kasey? How will Melissa react to seeing Blake again? Will Michael be able to handle Blake and Holly’s emotional reunion?
But the most important question is who will walk away $250,000 richer?
