At a ridiculously gorgeous mansion, Chris Harrison tells our old friend Tenley that she is the first-ever guest to step into the Bachelor Pad. Quite an honor! Others then filter in one-by-one. Many of these love seekers were on their respective Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons together but others like Nikki, Natalie, Peyton and Gwen come into the house without any ties. For now!
We should tell you that some of these sexy singles have hooked up during reunion trips. Elizabeth and Jesse K. come to the show in a relationship, but Juan and Nikki are on very bad terms after their last meeting. Now that we've had all of the arrivals, let's see who can avoid the departures.
After all the contestants are in the house, everyone runs around trying to find their bedroom. Much to the surprise of all the little girls and boys, the group learns they'll all be living in one room with BUNK BEDS! Please resist the urge to make any "who's on top or bottom" jokes.
Before we head out to the pool, David tells us to never trust girls because they're "really, really sneaky." Perhaps he's right, as the ladies conspire to vote off Craig M. because of the way he acted towards Jonathan during The Bachelorette. Surprisingly, Craig comes over to ask, "Who are we voting off first?" Guess he was testing the waters before the immunity competition.
A Twister of Fate
There's a Twister is in the driveway! We're talking about a giant game board, not a tornado. Clothing can really restrict one's movements, so it's good thing everyone's in their swimsuits. Juan has trouble competing amongst all these bathing beauties and their weird, twisting poses. Who knew Twister could be so challenging psychologically?!
Elizabeth K. tells everyone that she wants Craig out. She's treating the same way he treated Jonathan. Jessie and Craig are the final two and agree to give immunity to one another regardless of who wins. How's that for a plot twister? Craig puts his best right and/or left foot forward and wins the Twister tourney!
King of the Castle
Craig gets to choose three women to take on a date and will be able to grant immunity to one of them. The first person he chats with is Elizabeth, as he's determined to change her opinion of him. On the first night of the competition, we hear about how two of the contestants hooked up. The house seems to think it was Craig and Michelle. Makes sense. Chicks dig guys who rock at Twister.
"Sometimes you have to get a little cold to feel the heat." Craig chooses Jessie, Gwen and Elizabeth for the date. The group arrives at the beach for a picnic. During some one-on-one time, Elizabeth puts a love spell on Craig who is desperately waiting for a kiss. But we know better since Elizabeth and Jesse are together. Craig tells us how he wasn't going to make the first move but thought something would happen.
Back at the house, the guys are putting together their plan for the elimination. Jesse is worried that his relationship with Elizabeth may be hindering his chances to win. Some of the girls have come up to him but they were all afraid of crossing Elizabeth. There are more than a few sparks when Jesse B. and Peyton snuggle up by the fireplace. Gia and Juan talk about how they'll cover each other's back and how they should eliminate couples first.
Back on the date, Melissa welcomes Craig and the ladies to the Greek Theater. She informs Craig that he will have to give a rose to one girl. Craig and Jessie get a private concert with Alex Band. They dance and celebrate their immunity from the first elimination ceremony.
Since members of the opposite sex control who gets voted off, many of the guys try to make amends with many of the girls. The timing stinks for Jesse Kovacs and his semi-break up with Elizabeth, as she can easily sway votes. Juan approaches Nikki to try to work things out, but she's having none of it. Michelle also jumps into hot water when she approaches Tenley about rumors in the bathroom. Elizabeth clues in Jesse K. how the girls are feeling and what he needs to do to get off chopping block.
The ladies head into a deliberation room to cast their vote. The guys have told the girls that they're voting the drama out of the house. The women have been looking out for one another and many have indicated they want to protect Elizabeth. Juan has been working hard to sway votes and get Nikki's trust. His plan actually works when we see her vote for Jesse K. But when we reach the actual elimination, Juan and Michelle are the first two to be leaving the Bachelor Pad.
