Last week Michael Stagliano and Rachel Truehart demonstrated some serious chemistry together on their 3 on 1 date. Michael admitted to having a crush on Rachel and the two shared an extensive make-out session. And previews suggest the relationship gets even more serious as the this season of Bachelor Pad unfolds.
Rachel said tonight, “I’m feeling really strongly for Michael. I haven’t felt like this in a really long time.” She says she “is being insecure about the situation” (What? After only one week of basically living in a dorm together?! We love it when things “start to get real.”) Michael responds that he is glad she feels that way and reciprocates the affection. So we know it’s mutual and not just a casual hook-up. The only question is: Are the two in a relationship now that the show has finished taping?
Lucky for us, cast members take to Twitter to keep us posted on their current situations. And a recent photo showing Jaclyn Swartz, Rachel Truehart, Ed Swiderski and Chris Bukowski in Chicago to celebrate Jaclyn’s 28th birthday begs some interesting questions. One: is there anything still going on between Ed and Jaclyn? Two: are Michael Stagliano and Rachel Truehart still together?
It shows Rachel crying and Michael devastated.
Wetpaint recently interviewed Truehart asking her to “give a hint” about what situations go down:
“I’ll say this: just when you think you have everything figured out, everything falls apart. It made it really hard to maintain alliances. Relationships were tested. There was so much happening on an emotional level. I’m not going to lie, it really messed with me. Jaclyn and I tried our hardest to stay strong together, you’ll see how it all works out.”
As far as men go, did you go into the show single?
I did, I went in 110-percent single.
How did you come out?
(Laughs) You’ll have to tune in to find out!
Not to mention there are some rumblings that Chris B and Rachel are crushing on each other post-taping and he evidently recently traveled to NYC and saw her!
Well I guess we will have to continue our Twitter stalking to see what happens! Stay tuned. We will be staying on top of this situation! Here is a pretty cute deleted scene of Michael and Rachel talking backstage about liking each other. Enjoy……
