The latest installment is The Bachelor Pad sees 18 former participants in The Bachelor or The Bachelorette come together under the one roof. This time they will be competing for half a million dollars and a second shot at love.

Hosted by Chris Harrison (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette), Bachelor Pad returns MONDAY, AUGUST 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) with its most controversial cast to date – 18 of the unforgettable characters from the Bachelor franchise, including the ones we love and those we love to hate.

All 18 participants will gather back at the mansion to live together and compete for the prize money and possibly a second chance at love. Cast members include: the infamous wrestler, Justin “Rated R” Rego, Gia Allemand, who’s fresh from a breakup with Wes, and Kasey Kahl, who once professed his love for former Bachelorette Ali by getting a tattoo on his wrist. They’ll be joining Jake Pavelka, a former “Bachelor,” and his jilted ex-fiancee, Vienna Girardi.

With so many elements at play to raise the stakes – Vienna and Kasey are currently dating, there is recent bad blood between Gia and Vienna, a friendship has developed between Jake and Gia, and so much more – Season 2 is set to bring fireworks, drama, romance and endless possibilities.

Each week the contestants will square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of each challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose.

At the close of each episode the contestants vote among themselves – with the guys voting off one of the women and vice versa.
