We loved her on Matt Grant’s season of the Bachelor and we just can’t help but love her on Bachelor Pad 2. Whether she ends up with Michael or Blake, it doesn’t matter to us. I mean, we have all been there. We have all been in love, had our heart broken and at one time or another, had to make a difficult decision. What it comes down to relationship and love, it’s not about what we see on television and it’s honestly, really none of our business. We just love Holly’s bubbly, carefree personality and her honest “no drama” ways.
So, with that said, let’s learn a little more about this Bachelor Pad beauty that you don’t learn on television!
SG: Before we get started on our interview in 3 words or less, can you please give us an update on what you have been up to since you were on Matt Grant’s season of the Bachelor and what made you decide to go on Bachelor Pad 2?
HD: What in the world have I been up to since leaving that dreaded two on one date? In a nutshell . . . worked on my book, “Chocolate Socks”, met Michael from Jillian’s season, got engaged to Michael, got cold feet, worked on my book, got back together with Michael, broke up again, worked on my book, Bachelor Pad and then a whole of of awesomeness after that! I was hesitant to do Bachelor Pad. You live your life under a microscope and open it up for scrutiny. I don’t have thick skin, so it hurts to hear when people who don’t know me have so much to say. I have learned to not pay attention to the people who bring you down. Also, the “block button” on Twitter does wonders! So far, the feedback from Bachelor Pad has been positive, but I have a feeling people will start to have stronger opinions as the show continues. I ultimately decided to do Bachelor Pad 2 because at that point in my life, I had nothing left to lose and $250,000 to gain!
