I think it’s safe to say that out of all of the Bachelor Pad romances, America was really rooting for Wes Hayden and Gia Allemand to fall in love…and they did!
Even though Gia was dating hockey player Chris Campoli when she was on the show, the two have since broken up, and she hasn’t been shy about admitting that she’s interested in pursuing something more serious with Wes.
Wes and Gia reunited on the Bachelor Pad finale, and when Chris Harrison pointed out the attraction between them on the show, Gia said, “Yes there was…there still is.” When Chris asked Wes about his feelings for Gia, he said that he initially went on Bachelor Pad with the intention of focusing completely on the $250,00, but when Gia walked in, he just couldn’t help but like her.
Wes, who gained a reputation as a villain on Jillian Harris’s season of The Bachelorette, then said, “Bad boys need love too!” And then the crowd erupted into cries of, “Kiss her! Kiss her!” They rose from their seats and finally sealed their love with a kiss, and all of America, including me, clapped and cheered.
Later in the night, Wes said that he didn’t need the $250,000 Bachelor Pad prize, because he had a million dollars sitting right next to him, and pointed to Gia.
I know I’m not alone when I say that I would absolutely love to see Wes and Gia make it for the long haul, and eventually get married and start a family. Something between them just seems to “click”, don’t you think?
