Peyton Wright Out

The Bachelor, Season 10

Imagine a cute guy decides to take you out to dinner. And let’s say he asked another girl along, too. And then when dinner was over, he leaves you on a tarmac while he flies away with that girl. And it’s televised. That all happened to Peyton Wright. While suffering that sort of humiliation would make most of us a little camera shy, not so Wright. She picked herself up, washed Andy Baldwin right out of her hair, and signed up for Bachelor Pad, sort of a modern-day Battle of the Network Stars but with Bachelor/ette contestants and grosser challenges. Wright played the game shrewdly and locked lips with a handsome gent who had some gas issues, but ultimately lost out on the $250,000 prize.

Reality Steve’s Take : The Southern sweetheart from Andy Baldwin's season resurfaced during Bachelor Pad and won the heart of Jesse Beck. Before he burped in her face, anyway. This blonde hottie is like the girl next door, only with a dash of “I used a fantasy suite night with Jesse Beck.” But come on. We’re all allowed a mistake every once in a while. Buzz around town is she now might be linked to Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky’s No. 2, Chris Lambton. It’s possible, as The Bachelor/ette incest is far and wide.
