Bachelorette bad boy Kalon McMahon is finally showing his softer side!
Fans of ABC’s hit reality franchise were thrown for a loop this spring when luxury brand consultant McMahon, 29, berated Bachelorette Emily Maynard‘s daughter and called her “baggage,” but on Monday’s episode of Bachelor Pad, the show’s villain appears to be changing his tune.
On a one-on-one date with Lindzi Cox, McMahon ditches his bitter behavior and opens up to the woman he is closest to in the Bachelor Pad mansion. “This is literally the most romantic thing I’ve seen in my entire life,” McMahon admits as he and Cox explore a bridge that has been closed just so the two of them can enjoy a romantic night out. “It’s the perfect opportunity for me to open up to Lindzi and let her know exactly how I’ve been feeling.”
Sweeping Cox off her feet, McMahon — whom ex Maynard says makes her want to “stab my eyeballs out” — lays on the charm during their date. “You are the one thing that’s kept me sane in this whole process,” he tells her. “I never in a million years thought I’d find this and finding you is the most pleasant surprise I could have ever dreamed of.”
Confirms a smitten Cox: “Tonight was really amazing.”
For much more from their one-on-one date — and Chris Bukowski‘s evil plan to send Cox packing — watch the clip above before the full episode of Bachelor Pad airs Monday at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.
