Much of Bachelor Pad 2 this season revolved around Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl. Love them or hate them, Scottsdale fans saw a lot of this pair, and there was a lot to talk about when it came to the reunion. Chris Harrison had a lot of questions for this pair, and it was interesting to see what they had to say.
Vienna and Kasey had control of the Bachelor Pad game for much of the season, but they fell short of the finale. Much ado was made about having Jake Pavelka in the house, and the crew talked about it a bit. Jake continues to say that he went on the show for closure with Vienna, though she asks why he didn’t bother to get closure off television in the year since their split. Jake claims he tried to contact her, she claims he is lying. Jake and Kasey made amends though, as Kasey says he hated seeing that side of himself on TV and that it is not him. The two shake hands and hug, while Vienna glares at them.
Next, Kasey heads to the hot seat. They show a montage of Kasey’s time on Bachelor Pad 2, and he squirms as it progresses. Kasey says that watching that person he was on TV is a tough pill to swallow. They played Justin Rego mocking Kasey’s speech, and Kasey tells him that he has a speech impediment that he tends not to talk about often.
Kasey Kahl came off as quite the tough guy this season, but he says now in having watched it back, that really isn’t him. The game changed him, he says, and he apologizes for it. He says he didn’t see the sweet, sensitive guy that he really is, and he hates that everyone thinks he was shady and backstabbing people. He says he was playing the game, but he doesn’t like the person he saw on screen.
As for the many fights between Vienna and Kasey, he says that Vienna is an emotional person who doesn’t sugarcoat things. He admits that it can be hurtful, but he’s trying to learn how to be with her and stick by her side. Kasey says he’s trying to meet Vienna half-way, and it’s hard because sometimes it doesn’t seem like she wants to do that.
Chris asks what their relationship is like right now, and he admits the relationship that was shown in the house is not a healthy one, and not the one he wants. Kasey says that it was hard for him to be in the house and he’s struggling to be happy again. He feels like the house destroyed him and it continues to break him down, and he can’t seem to get back to being happy. Kasey actually tears up, saying he doesn’t want to be treated poorly, and doesn’t want to treat other people poorly.
Vienna doesn’t show any emotion throughout any of this, but Chris brings her into the discussion. She says it’s different living life and having fights on television, and you hate to have viewers seeing you in the midst of that and then have to relive it. She says it’s been extremely hard on both of them to have the world see those fights and judge them. Erica did share that she has spent some time with Kasey and Vienna since the taping, and they were very different during the trip. She says she thinks they are good for one another and she does support their relationship.
What happens now for Vienna and Kasey? He notes that “she’s Vienna,” and Chris says that if he said that about his wife, he probably wouldn’t be going home that night. Kasey says he’s trying to be the best man he can be, and he’s trying to accept her for who she is. He says that the loving moments are what led him to fall in love with her, and those are the moments that show him who he wants to spend the rest of his life with.
Can Vienna and Kasey move forward together? What did you think of their relationship in the house? Do you think they are right for one another?
