Chris Bukowski Interview - 8/16/2012
Well I’m still not too sure what to think of Chris. We saw a completely different side of him on "The Bachelorette" but keep reading to see how Chris defends his actions on the "Bachelor Pad."
Chris went into "The Bachelorette" looking for love and as well know he was very close in finding it with Emily. But he went into the "Bachelor Pad" with a different approach and not for looking for love.
Chris’s goal was to win the money and that’s that. He feels that he shouldn’t be judge on how he is in relationships based on a game show. He does feel bad that he hurt some girl’s feelings (Jamie in particular) but it’s a game (he said that a lot)! On a game show, especially one like the "Bachelor Pad," you can’t be nice. He was there to win the money and he was going to do whatever it takes.
Chris did say that Jamie and Blakeley were there for the money too, we just didn’t see them talking about it. He decided he didn’t want to be partners with Blakeley anymore because it started to not be fun for him. He felt that Blakeley was definitely the best partner for him at first (she was the most athletic and the most competitive. He did say if he could start from the beginning and pick a different partner it would have been Rachel or Sarah) but it just started to not work out.
He wanted to change up the game too and build new alliances so that factored into why he wanted to kick Blakeley out. He wasn’t mad at Ed or Kalon for turning against their word and voting Jamie off instead of Blakeley. He understands that it is a game and he was able to separate it from real life.
Chris loves being on the "Bachelor Pad," he has met so many good people and it has been such an amazing experience. Chris loved being at the mansion because it has so much “history” and being on Emily’s season he wasn’t able to experience it because everything was filmed in Charlotte.
He is still good friends with Ed and hopes that down the road he can make up with Jamie. He really didn’t know that he hurt Jamie like that and he didn’t think it was that bad for her. He said he may reach out to her but he is waiting for everything to just play itself out.
Now on to the biggest news of the call this morning….dun dun dun…Chris is moving to my hometown of GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND! It totally sucks that I don’t live there anymore (PS he was vacationing in Hawaii recently, how did I NOT know that)?
