‘Bachelor Pad 3’ rankings: Is Ed Swiderski still at #1?

You can only get away for scheming so long in the “Bachelor Pad” house — and this past week, Chris Bukowski was completely and totally found out for playing multiple women at the same time. Will it impact its game? It’s possible, since the women are voting and they for the time being may not be pleased with how he has acted around a few of them (regardless of whether or not it is “just a game”). With that in mind, he’s off our rankings for the second straight week, and we have one new player entering our top five thanks to Tony Pieper’s exit (mostly because he spent some time actually comforting Blakeley Jones).

5. Lindzi Cox (last week: not ranked) – You can question whether or not hooking up with Kalon McMahon is the best move that she could make for herself in this game, but it is hard to dispute the fact that she has managed to hang in the middle of two alliances without having her name brought up at all. If she can keep this up for a while longer, we would not be that shocked to see her float far into the competition.

4. Michael Stagliano (last week: #5) – It’s still unfathomable to us why some of these people would let a former winner stick around in the game for as long as they have, but Michael is still hanging in there — and thanks to that, it is actually possible that he could end up being at the end. He’s so likable that you want to keep him he longer he is around, and that is a very dangerous thing.

3. Jaclyn Swartz (last week: #3) – Jaclyn is a bit confrontational, and that does make us worry a little bit about her potentially shooting herself in the foot a little bit. However, hooking up with Ed is the best move that she could possibly make in that no one sees this guy as a threat.

2. Rachel Truehart (last week: #2) – It’s so appropriate that Michael and Rachel have some romance going on, because they really are similar players. The only major difference between the two is that she has not won the game before, and therefore lacks the stigma that comes along with it.

1. Ed Swiderski (last week: #1) – At the end of the day, it’s still really hard to look anywhere other than Ed for the top spot. He’s he party guy! Who wants to get rid of the party guy! The thing is that he’s going to have a hard time winning in the end unless up against a total heel, mostly because he hasn’t really played the game too hard outside of getting Reid out of the house.

Who do you think is the most likely to win this season? We want to hear some of your thoughts below! It you want to check out a recent defense by Chris of some of his actions, be sure and check out the link here.
