‘Bachelor Pad 3’ preview: The aftermath of Michael Stagliano’s exit

Even though Michael Stagliano may be gone from the “Bachelor Pad” house, he is surely not going to be forgotten — especially by a certain woman who was starting to fall in love with him in Rachel Truehart.

In the video below via Us Weekly, you can see exactly what Rachel is going through as she sobs following the exit of the season 2 champ — which came as a result of a twist where Erica Rose single-handedly had the opportunity to choose who left the game with her:

“I was falling in love with Michael, and I haven’t felt this way about a guy in so long … This sucks. I don’t know how I’m going to do this without him.”

At the end of the day, Rachel does end up making the decision to pair up with Ashley Hebert castoff Nick Petersen, who is a many who has ditched the Simon Baker haircut and is a little bit invisible because of it. Will he be a good partner for her? It’s hard to say, but one advantage that he could have is that he and Rachel will be working with one goal — winning money rather than finding love. They will not have any sort of distractions, and they could do rather well in this game because of it while other people are emotionally weighed down. After all, couldn’t Rachel and Michael find some time for each other after the show?

Do you think that Rachel is actually better off in the game now with Michael gone, mostly because she will now have a much smaller target on her back? If you want to check out some more news pertaining to how Michael is doing following the shocker of last week, be sure and hit up the link here.
