Chris Bukowski, who was dumped by Emily Maynard after their hometown date, joins fellow former Emily's suitors Tony Pieper and Kalon McMahon in the third season of the game show.
The final contestant of "Bachelor Pad" season 3 has been revealed. Following his elimination in the latest episode of "The Bachelorette", Chris Bukowski is announced to round up the list of people who will compete on the game show.
The "Bachelor Pad" stint reunites Chris with Tony Pieper and Kalon McMahon, who were all vying to win Emily Maynard's heart in the eighth season of "The Bachelorette". The other contestants are 12 "The Bachelor"/"The Bachelorette" alumni and some "super fans" of the dating show franchise.
25-year-old Chris was among Emily's final four guys, but he got the boot after taking her to his hometown in the episode aired Monday, July 2. Explaining her decision to send the corporate sales director home, the single mother wrote in a blog post for PEOPLE, "I had a really hard time sending him home, but wanted to stay true to the promise I made to his sister that I wouldn't keep him away from his family if I didn't see him at the end with me."
"Bachelor Pad" season 3 will premiere Monday, July 23 at 8/7c on ABC. A photo of the full cast member and a first promo for the next installment of the game show have landed online for sneak peeks.
