“Bachelor Pad” host Chris Harrison always blogs about the episodes as they air and now he is ready to discuss the biggest bombshell of the season; Nick Peterson taking all of the money for himself even though Rachel had trusted him completely when it came to sharing the money. However, during his little speech before revealing his answer, Nick Peterson revealed that he had been playing the game on his own. No one ever cared about him and when Rachel was paired with him, all she did was compare Nick to Michael and kept putting Nick down. However, “Bachelor Pad” host Chris Harrison understands where Nick is coming from and according to a new “Entertainment Wise” report written by Chris himself released on Sept. 11, he explains that he understands Nick's decision.
“While I don’t necessarily want to just throw out my own opinion I do have a unique perspective of this situation and there are some things I think you should know that might change your perspective,” “Bachelor Pad” host Chris Harrison explains of the drama last night on the finale. Although Nick's speech made sense, people have expressed compassion for Rachel because she had her heart broken by Michael, was cheated out of $250,000 and angered her best friend.
“Bachelor Pad” host Chris Harrison believes that it is important that people realize that it is a game and that Rachel's decision to be romantically involved shouldn't be considered when dividing the money. ““Bachelor Pad” is a game. From the moment you arrive at “Bachelor Pad” the fact that you are playing for a quarter of a million dollars is always on your mind. Nobody, especially nobody in Rachel’s alliance, gave a damn about Nick. Not only did they not care about him, but they didn’t think he had a chance to make it to the finals,” “Bachelor Pad” host Chris Harrison explains of Nick. “Nick was expendable and he was being used. Rachel, Michael, Jaclyn and Ed were only keeping Nick around until it was time to put him out of his misery and vote him off the show. As soon as he wasn’t useful anymore he was going to go… at least, that was the plan. Even while he was sitting on the stage, nobody in Rachel’s alliance felt he deserved the money or even to be up there. The only problem with that thought is whether you think somebody “deserves” it or not, he was there. I thought Kalon really put it in perspective when he told the other contestants that they didn’t really understand the true meaning of the word “deserve.””
Of course, everyone on that panel voted for Rachel to win, because they felt she deserved it. Not only did she stab her own friend in the back to get in the finals, but she had also cried tears over Michael Stagliano. However, if Nick Peterson had cried tears over him not being accepted by anyone, would that make him more 'deserving?' Although Nick may have tricked everyone on the judging panel, he did play the game. He was a shark under the surface and attacked when people least expected it.
