Donna Zitelli wants to bring "real" New Jersey attitude to reality TV.

The Hackensack resident doesn't "rock the pouf, bling, sparkles or orange spray tan" like those on "Jersey Shore." She says she's tough, sexy and knows how to party – qualities that are sure to entertain on "Bachelor Pad," which debuts tonight on ABC.

For the third season, 15 cast members from past seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" shack up in a mansion with five "super fans," competing for the chance to find love and win $250,000. Contestants take part in weekly challenges and eliminations until a male and female finalist remains.

"I have some kind of magical power over most males," says Zitelli, one of the "super fans." "I don't know what it is, but I can lure them in and get whatever I want out of them. All the boys fall in love and the best part is that I have no emotional attachment at all."
