Exclusive: 'Bachelor Pad' Winner Nick Peterson Weighs in on Blakeley Jones and Tony Pieper's Break Up
When Bachelor Pad 3 couple Blakeley Jones and Tony Pieper announced they split up just two months after getting engaged, everyone was taken back including their former housemate and winner of season 3 Nick Peterson.
If you recall, the finale of the show turned out to be rather controversial when Nick pulled a daring move and kept the $250,000 for himself instead of sharing with his partner Rachel Truehart, which is the first time a player of the game boldly took home all the winnings.
Nick was just as surprised as anyone to hear the news about the couple breaking up. He exclusively told Okmagazine.com, "I'm shocked! They're two of my favorite people from the house and I honestly thought they would be [the] ones to make it!
By the end of the show, Tony proposed to Blakeley with a Neil Lane engagement ring.
Whle the couldn't seem to make it work after Blakeley moved to Portland to be with her fiancé, Nick wishes them the best.
"They're amazing people and I know they wanted to make it work. But sometimes it just isn't meant to be. I wish them both the best and I'm sure they'll both find someone soon."
