Was ‘Bachelor Pad’s’ Jake Pavelka paid to do the show?

Is this a shocker to anyone?

Do producers of these reality shows really expect viewers to believe that people join these shows out of the goodness of their hearts and that they aren’t being financially compensated for their humiliation outside a shot at prize money?

An insider from the show ‘Bachelor Pad’ season 2 is saying that Jake Pavelka was paid $20,000 to come on the show and apparently producers guaranteed him that he would survive a few eliminations.  They said;

“It was total [garbage]. They changed the rules to keep Jake on the show. They even sent two girls home instead of losing him, which is just plain wrong. I don’t believe he [Jake] was there to apologize. He was there to put a Band-Aid on his image and make a buck at Vienna’s expense.”

Of course producers are going to fix ‘Bachelor Pad’ so that Jake and his ex fiancée Vienna Girardi would be on the show together as long as possible, is that really a shocker to anyone?

‘Bachelorette’ contestant Craig Robinson said; “I heard he was given $20,000 to appear on four episodes of the show,” and Vienna’s boyfriend Kasey Kahl said; “They thought it’d be great to keep the love triangle going. “

Kind of sounds like bitter reality stars upset with Jake getting more screen time then them if you ask us.
