Everyone’s favorite summertime guilty pleasure is back when “Bachelor Pad” premieres its second season on ABC Monday night (Aug. 8). In the first challenge, the couples are forced to “hook up,” by intertwining with each other and dangling on hooks and wires.

The last couple up there wins. Vienna and Kasey, who are a pre-show couple, are ready to go. Meanwhile, Jake is nervous if he doesn’t win because he’s so unpopular in the house. I’m surprised he got a girl to pair up with him without being forced.

William/Gia and Ames/Michelle drop immediately, so it doesn’t say much for Ashley Hebert’s bachelors, huh? Who do you think comes out on top, Jake or Vienna? We can’t wait to watch them fight all summer. Bring on the tears!

“Bachelor Pad” premieres Monday night, Aug. 8 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC – a three-hour premiere, so buckle up.
