Paradise Hotel, June 18: Welcome to ParadisePage 2
View Printable version of this article
The girls start gathering to check out the guys in order... Zack is 10, Andon 9, Beau is 8, 7 "little Ace Ventura" (Alex), Scott is a 6. Meanwhile the guys muse that they don't think any of the girls are fat, but Melanie is really old... like 30. Ah, it looks like shallowness is an equal-opportunity employer out here. Amy thinks Zack is retarded or something, wondering where his social skills are. Meanwhile some are flirting in the water, while others are on the sidelines, as we fade into commercials and the next segment.
Amanda Byram is back, calling the ladies up to the stairs and telling the men to take their seats. She informs the ladies one of them is going home at the end of the week, and the only way to avoid it is to find a roommate. So it's up to the ladies to decide who they want to spend their time with. It's the first game of the season. As each lady is called, she must go over and stand next to the man of her choice. If only one lady chooses a man, they are a couple and will be roommates. However, if two ladies pick the same man, the man gets to pick the lady he wishes to be with. The staff, meanwhile, hand out sets of matching necklaces to each man. They will wear one of them; the other they will put around the neck of the lady they will be sharing the room with. At the end of this, one woman will have a room to herself, and if she can't win over a necklace by the end of the week, her stay in paradise is over.
Kristin is first to select a man. She picks Alex. She thinks he's got this model look and that he's cute. Charla is next, and she selects Beau, after teasing Alex a bit. She also notes that she thinks Amanda likes him, and because she irritates her, she picked him to tick her off. Toni is next to select, and chooses Andon. She thinks he's great, and they have a lot in common. Melanie picks next, and Scott is her choice. Zack is not having fun; he apparently thinks he's all that, but he's the last one to be selected by one of the ladies. Amy is sent off to find the man she wants to room with. She picks Zack. She claims he's a funny guy. She's also not stupid; to stay in Hotel Paradise requires a partner at this stage, and picking a fight this early over some guy she hardly knows isn't the best idea in the world. Finally, Amanda is forced to battle it out over another woman guest for a guy. She takes her time, but settles on Beau. She thinks everybody knew she wanted Beau. She goes on and claims Charla is only here to win, and doesn't know if it would bother her to step on other people.
So Beau has to make the choice... which girl, Charla or Amanda? Whichever one he rejects, the poor girl will have to spend the rest of the week on her own. Beau says it's not an easy decision, but he has gotten to know one of the women better... and with that he picks Amanda.
Back to our host, who tells Charla it isn't over for her yet. To survive in paradise, all she needs to do is to break up one of the couples and get with one of the guys. She gets a black necklace and private room all to herself. Host Amanda tells everybody to have a good time, but also tells them that we (meaning the audience) will be watching their every move. With that, she sends them off to dinner.
Over dinner, Amy questions Zack as to whether he is disappointed over his roommate situation. He claims he isn't. Then he confesses he wanted Amanda or Kristin, but they didn't pick him. He doesn't know why. Then he goes on to claim that while he isn't conceited, he's better than the two guys those women picked. "I'm sorry, I am!" Uh huh, well, go suck your thumb, boy, I'd LIKE to have Amy for a roommate. He then proceeds to dig his grave a little deeper by telling her that he thinks he could have done better. Oh wow, how vain can you get? Amy questions him on what he means by a little bit better, and he starts to hedge, saying, "I don't mean you” (uh, I think he DID actually), he's just like surprised by everything, you know? Amy then tells him that if he's disappointed, she's totally sorry. I would be too if I got a vain jerk like him for a roommate.
Meanwhile, Beau is chatting with his roommate, Amanda, telling her she took a chance because she knew somebody else was going to pick him. I have no idea if he's just not too bright, or if he's vain also, since Amanda had to battle it out with somebody. He should be happy that, aside from Kristin, who had first pick, she was possibly the only one he KNOWS was selected as a first choice. Meanwhile Amanda is starting to compare him to her wonderful ex-boyfriend. Beau goes on and states this is a step which could lead to other things. However, Amanda is going to WAIT for other things. So much for him getting lucky on his first night in paradise.
Meanwhile, it's advice time for Charla, compliments of Melanie. She's told she needs to talk to every single person there. She muses she talks to Andon the most. Melanie says they'll talk tomorrow and map out a strategy. Charla retorts that she doesn't need a strategy. Uh, wake up; you DO if you want to remain in the game.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
