The Prisoner's Dilemma on Bachelor Pad



The season finale of Bachelor Pad featured the two finalists facing the Prisoner's Dilemma. $250,000 was up for grabs. The finalists were told the rules and then sent to separate rooms: If they both chose to keep it, then they got nothing, and the money went to the other participants in the show. If one chose to keep, and the other chose to share, then the "keeper" got it all. If they both chose to share, then they'd split the money evenly. I'm not going to post the answer because it's pretty suspenseful and well worth watching.

(I learned from an Alan Moore comic that your best bet is to agree to share/help each other.) Via.

  1. That ending is so fake. There's no way she would do that if some producer didn't tell her to.

  3. This was kind of riveting-- a bunch of people who don't know about the classic iteration of the Prisoner's Dilemma having to do one? Everyone's expressions are cracking me up. They just had their minds blown.
