Now in its third season and running low on "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette" rejects, "Bachelor Pad" pulls a card from "Survivor" to stay alive. This season combines old contestants with the show's hyper fans. It's good to bring some fresh faces into the mix, but we all enjoy the has-been contestants more. If the fans are nuts enough, which we suppose they have to be, this is going to be epic. How it works Here's the gist of the show for first-time viewers: All the contestants are single and live together in an absurd mansion.

Tonight the 2012 Bachelor series trifecta comes to an end with what Chris Harrison describes as the "most shocking and most disturbing 'Bachelor Pad' finale. " We've laughed and we've cried (because we were laughing so hard), but we couldn't be happier to say goodbye to these fools. Ray Lewis would be ashamed if he knew what we were doing right now. We currently have two televisions set up in our living room -- one on mute with the Ravens game and the other with "Bachelor Pad. " We can't wait to see who wins on both screens!

"Bachelor Pad's" second to last episode was last night. While thrilled that "Bachelor Pad" was the perfect segue between the Summer Olympics and football, we're none to happy about the scheduling of the finale -- the same time as the Ravens' first game. The amount of crying and open mouth stares on this week's previews can only mean that the apocalypse has hit. Turns out, it's just another twist. Shocker! More twists! Sarah: The apocalyptic stares from the preview were actually the contestants seeing the challenge for the first time -- a giant crane-like contraption with seats dangling over the pool.

Aaron Warren enjoys it when visitors gasp in delight at the renovation of his Canton home. "You should have seen it a year ago," he says. In August last year, he began rehabilitating a property he had bought a few months earlier on Potomac Street. He paid $85,000 for his two-story, red-brick rowhouse. The exterior was quaint, right down to the stained-glass transom over his wide front window. The interior, however, was little more than a shell. Warren, a 29-year-old sales manager with MCI, rolled up his sleeves and got to work.

Final Destination 3 [New Line] $30 This two-disc special edition of the third in the horror-film franchise gives viewers the option of watching the theatrical release or the "Choose Their Fate" version, where you can click on icons to control the characters' fates. The film isn't very good, so the "Fate" option is an innovative way to have fun. Rounding out the disc are a "making of" documentary; a creepy animated short, "It's All Around You"; a look at the "Dead Teenager Movie" and breezy commentary from filmmakers James Wong and Glen Morgan and cinematographer Robert McLachlan.

"Pad: The Guide to Ultra-Living" (Chronicle, 2000) takes a no-holds-barred approach to home decorating that emphasizes projects made of cheap, unlikely materials and day-glo colors. Not for the timid, "Pad" is an idea book aimed at funky, creative hipsters looking to spruce up their places with elbow grease, flea market finds and a certain flair for the bizarre. Splashy photos profile homes and give the reader something to shoot for -- such as the padded-cell theme in one man's zebra-striped office -- while step-by-step instructions tell exactly how to do it. But duplication is not the goal of "Pad" -- inspiration is. "What's interesting about any home," reads the book's intro, "is what it says about the individual who created it."

TOKYO -- You can hold your sweetheart's hand in the restaurant and give her a kiss on the cheek in a movie theater. But where do you go in congested Japan when it's time for something more intimate?In Tokyo, you'd "take a walk up the Slope," a modest hill just north of Shibuya Station where the commuter rails meet the central Tokyo subways. It is a major intersection of Japanese life, at once the most familiar, most active and most anonymous spot in the country, the perfect location for a no-tell motel.

Now we're getting somewhere. Last week, Michael ("Puppy") and Erica ("Plastic Princess") were voted off, Blakeley ("Cougar") declared war on Chris ("Lt. Dan") and Ed ("Adam Corolla") revealed his lack-of-desire for Jaclyn ("The Muppet") in front of the whole house. Now that everyone hates each other and Rachel ("Snaggle Tooth") is permanently crying in the corner, Chris Harrison drops another bomb -- they are now competing, and voting, as couples.  Elementary school spelling bee Sarah: This week the contestants compete in a triple-elimination spelling bee. I know we aren't dealing with the smartest bunch of adults, but seriously?

We may have bigger problems than being fans of "The Bachelor" series, watching it every week and writing this blog. "The Bachelor Pad" is now consuming our random thoughts. Questions like, "do these people have full time jobs?" come to mind while I'm in the shower. Chris thinks on the toilet, "how can I become a luxury brand consultant?" After a serious debate of these questions and more, we're still perplexed as to why grown-ass men and women taking part in reality television (when less than a million dollars and/or a recording contract is on the line)

It's hard to focus on tonight's "Bachelor Pad" while we are eagerly awaiting ABC to confirm Olympic gold medalist swimmer Ryan Lochte as the next Bachelor. And this isn't a pipe dream like our " Make Chris Harrison the Next Bachelor " Facebook group. A few days ago, Lochte let slip to Matt Lauer on"Today" that he wanted to be the next Bachelor and appear on "Dancing with the Stars. "  Is he a good candidate? Well, he's single and famous. Without the gold medals, he's just like Bachelor Brad without the southern accent.

In the lobby of the Anchorage Towers in Canton, someone's swept the coins at the bottom of a burbling fountain into the shape of an anchor. Clearly that's not where Ed Hale's been throwing his money. Fourteen flights up in the penthouse, Hale, chief executive officer of 1st Mariner Bank, developer and owner of the Baltimore Blast professional soccer team, has used more than a little of his spare change to create a swank bachelor pad with breathtaking views of the city he has literally worked his way to the top of. But Hale wants to cash out and trade up. To move just feet down Boston Street into the top of a 17-story office tower he's building there, Hale is selling the condo he spent a decade molding to fit his definition of man-about-town luxury.

Here's our vote for the third week in August as the most annoying week of the year. It's when the lull between spring and fall television programming really takes its toll -- our DVR is only 10 percent full (22 episodes of "Repo Games" and five episodes of "My Cat from Hell"). That, combined with overwhelming complaints from teachers that have to go back to work after a relaxing summer, is enough to reach a boiling point. News flash: Most of us work full-time all year and still get paid less than you do. Here's hoping tonight's episode of "The Bachelor Pad" makes us feel better during the year's most annoying week.
