Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl just missed the “Bachelor Pad” season 2 Final 4 and the dream of winning $250,000 after being eliminated on part one of Monday’s season finale. The couple was eliminated by Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst, who held all of the power for the week after winning the week’s challenge.
Vienna and Kasey’s plea to stick around was decent but obviously didn’t work. Kasey basically told the couple they know they won’t get the votes for the final prize but that they feel they deserve to be in the Final 4 because they’ve done everyone else’s, particularly Graham and Michelle’s, dirty work. It wasn’t an invalid point, and Holly and Michael would’ve been really smart to go that route, but the couple said they’d rather take the selfless route and risk losing the money than continue to be selfish in a game that feeds on selfishness like sharks feed on guppies (OK, he didn’t say that last part, but it would’ve made for great television!).

Graham Bunn and Michelle Money were shocked to be taken to the Final 4, particularly Michelle, who fell to her knees after the announcement, while Vienna and Kasey were shocked not to be taken to the Final 4, breaking down in the limo and claiming disloyalty.
Highlights of “Bachelor Pad” season 2, episode six (finale part one):
For the final challenge of the season the four remaining teams of two traveled to Las Vegas to compete on the stage of Cirque du Soleil KA. The teams were put in special clothing and harnesses and challenged to perform a 60-second choreographed routine on a large, vertical wall. Ten seconds had to be choreographed by each couple, and Holly’s idea was by far the best, for which she suggested she kick ex-fiance Michael and run away from him; ah, how our actions show our true emotions! The challenge’s judges were former Bachelor Jason Mesnick and former Bachelorettes Trista Sutter and Ali Fedotowsky, and after all four couples performed, the judges deemed Kirk and Ella the worst of all of the routines – which unfortunately meant the couple had to leave “Bachelor Pad” immediately. Ella was terrified during practice and the performance – who could blame here? – and the judges said the performance lacked showmanship, which is understandable since it’s hard to play a character when you’re afraid you’re about to die – unless, of course, you’re playing a character who’s about to die, in which case bummer that wasn’t the story!
The things you didn’t see on the ‘Bachelor Pad’ finale: a backstage brawl & a paid proposal?
Viewers saw one last Kasey and Vienna fight before the ‘happiest couple on Earth’ left the house. Better executed, the fight, which stemmed from Vienna thinking Kasey was too aggressive with his plea to Michael and Holly, probably wouldn’t have happened – guaranteed another fight would have, though. Vienna claimed Kasey wouldn’t stop talking during the plea and wouldn’t let Michael and Holly speak. Kasey took offense to that – not a surprise – and stormed off. For someone who wants her fiancé to muzzle it and to act more demure when speaking to the couple with all of the power, she sure doesn’t follow her own request.
