Bachelor Pad premieres Monday on ABC and the most controversial castoff from Emily Maynard’s season will be back: Kalon McMahon.

As Celebuzz exclusively reported, Kalon is dating Lindzi Cox, the runner-up from Ben Flajnik’s season. So will we really see a different side of the helicopter-flying bad boy thanks to his new lady love?

“I think people will see a nicer side of Kalon,” Bachelor Pad 3 contestant Erica Rose told Celebuzz. “They’ll see he’s not so bad as he was on Bachelorette. I think Lindzi brings out a nicer, softer side of Kalon for sure.”

Does host Chris Harrison agree Lindzi makes Kalon a better person?

“Kalon thinks Kalon is a better person on Bachelor Pad,” Harrison told us during our recent interview. “The thing about Kalon — if you watched Bachelorette – is that Kalon is very unaware.”

“He’s not self-aware whatsoever, hence the reason he can’t apologize and keeps sticking his foot in his mouth,” continued Chris Harrison. “According to Kalon, yeah he redeems himself. I’ll be interested to see what America thinks.”

Kalon aside, it appears that Emily Maynard’s castoff Chris Bukowski is the ultimate trouble maker on this season.

“I think Chris is the biggest player in the house,” Erica Rose told us. “He hooked up with three different girls and broke two girls’ hearts on it. He was definitely playing the field and upsetting people, but I like him. We’re friends.”
