I spoke with Gia and Jonathan, AKA “The Weatherman”, about their time on “Bachelor Pad”.
When asked why she decided to go on the show with a boyfriend, Gia said that they had been on and off for three years, but she thought she could go on the show, make friends, and hopefully make some money. She didn’t anticipate having feelings for anyone in the house. Which obviously, as we saw last night, she did.
Gia said that she will not say whether or not she is still with her boyfriend, she’s going to wait until the finale to reveal that tidbit, although several gossip outlets are saying that they have broken up. She did comment that they didn’t have the best foundation with her going into the show so it probably wasn’t the best thing to do.
On giving the rose to Wes instead of Craig: While Gia admits she should have talked about that with the girls beforehand, she still doesn’t think she did anything wrong. She seems dead set on thinking that it was the right thing to do to keep Wes safe. She says she never anticipated Craig getting voted out by the girls and never would have given Wes the rose had she thought that would have happened. She basically thought at the time that giving Wes the rose and letting the girls vote to keep Craig safe would be like a 2 for 1 deal.
Gia has not spoken to Wes since her time on the show though. She says she is planning on talking to him at the finale, but won’t say if she’s looking forward to it, or if there is anything romantic still lingering there.
Gia also thinks that Kiptyn, AKA the world’s nicest guy, is a big fat liar. She thinks he just goes around lying to people’s faces because he said to Peyton on the date that he didn’t have feelings for Tenley which was false. I think his fib was more about strategy and Gia taking her word back from Craig about the rose was the worse violation of trust in the house.
Meantime, Jonathan said that dealing with Craig M. in the house went far better than he expected. He wasn’t that mean to him, and he says Craig definitely put his better foot forward this time around. So they’re cool now.
On Elizabeth spitting after his kiss: He feels that she isn’t even a contestant in the house she is something in a demonic form. WOW. He hates her soooo much! I can’t say I blame him. Maybe they’ll make up at the finale?
He says he really doesn’t know why he got voted out because he feels he was a good ally to the girls. He said he had several of their backs and he thinks that by getting rid of him, they basically shot themselves in the foot. Jonathan said the only thing he would have done differently was been a little more aggressive and talked strategy before that last rose ceremony. He said people stayed pretty tight lipped after the one the week before.
Jonathan doesn’t think that there is any possibility of himself being the next bachelor, but says he would love to be. He said that he was so flattered that people would even ask him that. Aww, he is a sweetie! I want him to find love, don’t you?
In the meantime, Jonathan just moved to LA today! How exciting! He left his previous job as a weatherman and is doing standup. He says he still enjoys being a weatherman, but the news business is a tough business ( I hear you brother! ) and it’s very hard to get jobs, especially in LA. So he says we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
That’s all for today! Tomorrow, I’ll post the full transcript of the interviews. There are some really funny interactions between these two, who say they plan on staying friends.
Hugs, Kisses & Roses,
