Dave And Natalie: Good As It Getz!
The Bachelor Pad has crowned its winner. Natalie Getz and Dave Good stuck it out to win $250,000. So how did they do it? Glad you asked.
Natalie Getz and Dave Good were long shots to win the first season of ABC's The Bachelor Pad, but they came through in the end. Their savior was the final challenge. Getz and Good -- say that three times fast -- as well as the other finalists, Jesse Kovacs, Elizabeth Kitt, Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke, had to go head-to-head in a ballroom dancing competition.
Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke got nods from guest judges Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka and Trista Rehn. Look at that, Jake Pavelka turns up on TV again.
Molzahn and Locke got the advantage of voting two contestants off. The pair sent Jesse Kovacs and Elizabeth Kitt packing.
In the end it all came down to loyalty. Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke felt Natalie Getz and Dave Good had their backs in the competition, so they took them to the final round. The four competitors had to convince the previously eliminated contestants who to give the $250,000 prize to in the finale.
Krisily Kennedy came out swinging. She blasted Dave Good for not telling her that she was going to get eliminated. "You didn't give me the respect," she told him. Gwen, the granny of the house, put Good on her radar after hearing him say that "anybody in their 30s is a loser for being in this house."
It was now Tenley Molzahn's turn. Michelle Kujawa went for the jugular, accusing Tenley of starting a rumor that she hooked up with one of the housemates. "I lost respect for you," she told her. "You don't have my vote." Tenley tried to make it right, but Kujawa said, "What goes around comes around, and I don't care."
Some of the finalists claimed they had debt and others claimed they lost their homes. In the end, the other evicted housemates made their choice for who they felt deserved the money.
They felt Natalie Getz and Dave Good were the ones, but they weren't immediately given the money.
Here's how it went down. Getz and Good were sent into two different rooms and had to decide whether they wanted to keep the money for themselves or share it with each other.
Here are the twisted rules. If they each chose share, they'd get to split the money at $125,000 each. If one chose keep, that person would get all the money. If they both chose keep, neither would get it and it would be split among the former housemates. I know it's confusing, so I'll just get right to it.
Dave Good chose split. Before revealing her choice, Natalie said, "The only time to be selfish is when you've already gotten your friends as far as they can go." She also chose split. If you're still confused, that means they split the money down the middle.
So, are Good and Getz -- best super-couple name ever -- the real deal? Dave Good did tell the housemates he and Natalie were not "on the same level" as a couple as Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke.
There you have it, the first season winners of The Bachelor Pad. Does that mean a season two premiere of The Bachelor Pad is headed our way? As long as there are Bachelor and Bachelorette rejects, there will likely be more of The Bachelor Pad.
