Five "Super Fans" found through an open casting call, will spice it up in the mansion and compete for love and money against veteran bachelors and bachelorettes. The group heads to the mansion to live, scheme and connive as they compete for $250,000 - and possibly another chance at love. In the first group challenge, "Falling for Love," the men and women couple up and try to keep each other from falling out of quickly tilting hearts hoisted high up off the ground. The winning couple is safe from elimination, but the couple that falls first will each carry a vote against them into the rose ceremony.
The women will fail to find their groove while the men will try to make up for their lack of grace with sheer attitude. On a 3-on-1 date, a fan favorite will find unexpected sparks at a rock concert with a beautiful housemate. The other 3-on-1 date features a race for a woman's heart - in a soapbox derby! Back at the mansion, the pressure mounts on all the contestants, leading to a shocking pre-dawn decision.
The third challenge of the season will plunge the contestants up to their heads in "Hot Sludge Funday," an ice-cream themed obstacle course. Awaiting the winners are 3-on-1 dates to relive high school memories and to get shined up at Madame Tussaud's famous Hollywood wax museum. Back at the house, contestants will start coupling up romantically, including one fan who, after being spurned by the cast member of her dreams, will have better luck on the rebound.
Awaiting the winners are the first 1-on-1 dates - one to play ball at Dodger Stadium, the other an action packed movie adventure in downtown LA. In the meantime, drama is high at the house, as girls start fighting over the men they're coupled with, both strategically and romantically.
Contestants stack teacups in a challenged titled "Great Fall of China." One-on-one dates include an overnight camping trip and a "Pretty Woman"-inspired tour of Los Angeles.
The week's challenge puts the contestants up on stage to perform in a spelling bee. One-on-one dates include a romantic hoedown at a barn and a day exploring the beauty of the Channel Islands. If the couple everyone wants to see gone wins the challenge, the stronger alliance will have no choice but to cut out one of its own couples when the stakes rise.
This week offers two challenges - the first is a sudden death dangling competition in which competitors depend on their partners' knowledge of "Bachelor Pad" trivia to keep them from plummeting down into the pool. The second is a karaoke competition, played out in front of a crowd of 500 at a legendary Hollywood concert venue - with a very special surprise guest. The couple with the roses at the end get to decide whom to take with them to the finals, but their trust vanishes when they can't agree on whether to go with loyalty or strategy.
The final two couples return to face their former housemates, who will vote to decide which couple will advance to the final round for a chance to win $250,000.
