The Bachelor Pad finale aired last night, and after a tight competition, Natalie Getz and Dave Good wound up being the winners and splitting the $250,000. Natalie plans to pay off student loans with the money, while Dave will likely put it into his business, and whether or not they continue their relationship and evolve into something more serious is anyone’s guess.
Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke came in second place in the contest, but we can’t help but think that maybe they should’ve won the whole thing.
For starters,Tenley and Kiptyn, or “Kip-Ten” a term Tenley has used to refer to her and her new beau, are the real deal. They are truly in love, and even the entire cast of Bachelor Pad thinks that they will wind up married and will start a family together. Since the whole purpose of these dating shows is to find true love, wouldn’t it have been great if they’d been rewarded for that?
Kiptyn and Tenley also had better plans for what to do with the $250,000 prize if they had won, which they told their cast mates when they were making their final plea for votes.
Kiptyn said that he would give $50,000 to charity right off the bat, while Tenley said that she would use a good bit of the money to replace the funds that her parents lost on her house when she and her first husband split up.
Tenley and Kiptyn may not have walked away with the cash, but in my opinion what they found on Bachelor Pad is of much greater value. They are a perfect match, and finding true love is something you can’t put a price tag on. Hopefully we will see a wedding in the near future for these two.
One thing’s for sure, they’ll have a great story to tell their future kids about how their parents met!
