When ABC’s Bachelor Pad returns August 8, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi will meet again in the mansion as they battle for … everything.
With $250,000 on the line – and Girardi’s current beau, Bachelorette reject Kasey Kahl, in the mix – the stakes are high and the insults bitter.
“I hope she falls 3,000 feet to her death,” Jake says in the promo below.

It’s no surprise that the exes’ icy interactions highlight the summer spin-off series, which airs a week after The Bachelorette season finale.
“She’s trying to hurt me so she can get the money,” a fired up Jake says in reference to the show’s grand prize. “It will not happen!”
Vienna Girardi is equally as vengeful. “I hate him!” she snipes.
Jake somehow chose Vienna on The Bachelor the season before last, only to break up with and despise her approximately 17 hours later.
They went on to air their dirty laundry publicly in an epic interview on The Bachelorette season starring Ali Fedotowsky last summer.

“I try to tell all these people, take advantage of all this, use this to enhance your life, whatever that is. But you know, for Jake … he really got caught up in it … he really, really got caught up in it.”
“And he’s someone who came on to try to turn the tide and change everybody’s opinion of him. And he really has a hard time with that.”
When Chris Harrison is full-on calling you a fame whore – in the same breath in which he admits people come on the show for publicity, and that he encourages it no less – you know things have reached ridiculous proportions.
