So which couple emerged victorious? Read directly to find out!
They won’t was capable of rekindle their romance, but on-again-off-again couple Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano beat out the rest three couples to win Bachelor Pad.
Durst, 28, and Stagliano, 27, were once engaged to one another but Durst spent much of the truth competition flirting with Blake Julian – and the couple at the moment are planning to marry.
But before the winners were named, the general four couples left the Bachelor Pad mansion for Las Vegas, where they competed in a Cirque du Soleil challenge.
A panel of former Bachelorette stars judged the contestants on their acrobatic routines – perfected in precisely 24 hours – they usually awarded roses to Michael and Holly, while deeming Ella and Kirk the worst of the bunch, sending them home at the spot.
From there, Holly and Michael awarded the overall two roses to Michelle and Graham.
A reunion of the housemates followed, and the surprises came one after another. First, Kasey apologizes to Jake for unfairly judging him. Then, Holly and Blake’s engagement is shown on air – and Michael gets blindsided by the news, dropped at him on camera.
Lucky for Michael, he gets some happier news next. The entire contestants from the pad vote for the couple they believe should win, and Michael and Holly beat out Michelle Money and Graham Bunn.
Finally, both finalists needed to independently choose whether to separate the cash evenly or keep it for themselves.
“Weddings are expensive, last I checked,” quipped Michael before the pair revealed that they both chose to separate the money.
And they each went home $125,000 richer.
