Chris Bukowski Joins Bachelor Pad 3!


Ousted Season 8 Bachelorette contestant Kalon McMahon now has some familiar company on Bachelor Pad 3: Chris Bukowski!

Bukowski, who failed to receive a rose from Emily Maynard during Monday night's episode, will have a chance to mend his broken heart — and win $250,000 — on Bachelor Pad 3, confirms.

After having admitted to Maynard on the June 25 episode that he loved her, Bukowski, 25, was dumbstruck during the July 2 episode’s final rose ceremony. "I don't have an explanation. So many more of my relationships grew so much faster and deeper," Maynard reasoned.

Sniped the Chicago-native: "How much faster could it possibly move?! I told you I loved you!"

Bukowski, McMahon (who was kicked to the curb on June 11 after calling Maynard's six-year-old daughter Ricki "baggage,") will join former Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants, including Bachelor Pad 2 winner Michael Stagliano, Ed Swiderski, Ryan Hoag, Nick Peterson, Tony Pieper and Lindzi Cox, among others.

Bachelor Pad 3 premieres Monday, July 23 on ABC.
