Bachelor Pad’s Peyton: “I Kind of Gave Up Early”


Bachelor Pad star Peyton Wright says she wasn't expecting Natalie Getz to be the one to eliminate her and Jesse Beck during Monday night's episode.

"I really didn't know how she voted going into the rose ceremony that night, and I guess up until watching the show, I had assumed she voted us out from the very beginning," Wright, 27, tells "It was interesting watching the episode and seeing that she really was kind of pulling for us all along."

Even more surprising? Seeing her fellow competitors rally to keep her and Beck on the show.

"I was surprised at all of the conversations that went on last night to actually keep Jesse and me in the house. I think I kind of gave up early on, even though I was talking to Natalie and Tenley to kind of keep us there," she says. "I really just didn't even think we had a fighting chance. It was really nice to see that they did take into consideration keeping us."

Beck insists he doesn't hold a grudge after Wright dropped a water balloon, causing them to lose the challenge that ultimately led to their exit.

"It was a tough game. I wasn't super disappointed," he tells Us. "Things happen, and you win as a team and lose as a team, so I was glad I had Peyton as my partner."

After his experience on Bachelor Pad, the 25-year-old general contractor hints that it will probably be the last time he appears on a reality show.

"I'd rather not do anything like these again, I'm not going to lie," he tells Us. "The whole interviewing process and all that stuff, I am not good at. It's not up my alley. If it was something else, maybe like Survivor, I think I could do that."

Adds Wright, "I don't have any plans to be on television, but I'd be open to anything. I love the camera. I think it's a blast!"
