Welcome back to Paradise Hotel, where we begin with host Amanda standing in the Los Angeles studio, waiting to show the audience the selection of the next guest. She points out that last week Dave went from fan to star, and they would do the same thing again tonight. But before that, it's back to Paradise Hotel, where we'll see what has gone on since the last episode – and find out which man has been forced to check out.
To review, this week the couples were as follows:
Charla and Scott: Yellow Room
We reenter Paradise to check in on Charla, who's in the spa getting a massage. As she gets massaged, she tells us that she's playing the game the best she knows how and that she's afraid to leave. She's constantly thinking of what she can do to stay there. Well Charla, there is an obvious answer, but you might not want to go there. We cut there to listen in on Dave and Scott, with Dave saying he thinks he's made a connection with Charla, and nobody else has. He'll be disappointed if she doesn't choose him. Scott agrees that she's a great girl; she speaks her mind and tells people how she is feeling. While that goes on, Beau, Zack, and Amy are chatting in the Monkey Room. Beau thinks all the power is in Charla's hands, because she can pick Dave or pick somebody else. Beau states that if Dave picks one of the girls, the girl will keep one of the originals – except for Charla. Charla continues to get her massage, telling us that she flip-flops between the guys. She thinks if she picks Dave, everybody else will be mad at her and think she's disloyal, because everybody else wants the original people there. She describes it as a little high school cliché, and she isn't into that. However, she also thinks that if the originals had their chance to get rid of her next week, they'd do it.
Back to Dave and Scott, where Dave asks Scott who he is going to pick. Scott refuses to tell him, but says Dave will be shocked by his pick. Cutting back to Charla, she tells us that nobody at Paradise Hotel likes her or wants her there. Her masseuse asks her how she feels about all this. Charla says she doesn't know what to do. She doesn't think she wants to room with Dave very much. We flashback to a scene where Dave and Charla are talking about the relationship they have. Dave says he's gone out of his way to establish one with her. Charla asks if he thought he had a chance with anybody else. Dave admits he hasn't tried. Back to the massage table, Charla states that everybody is trying their best to stay in the hotel. Andon was a jerk to her last week, but now that he realizes she might have the power to eliminate him, he's changed. Flashback to last episode, where Andon and Charla had their talk, kiss, and grind. But she doesn't think it was sincere. The only person she really trusts is the bartender. Then cut to Dave complaining to the bartender that if Charla doesn't pick him, so that she can get in with the group... well, it's completely screwed up. Dave's sick to his stomach. When he got there, everybody hated Charla. She made an effort with him, and he let her in. He's concerned he could be going home because of all the crap going on. Uh, Dave, you were a big part of the crap that has been going on lately. Kurt the bartender tells him that this is tonight, and tomorrow hasn't happened yet. Dave complains it's the story of his life; he works hard to get a beautiful girl and then ends up as the sucker because he's a nice guy.
Charla continues to complain to the masseuse. She wouldn't feel comfortable in the same bed with Dave. Apparently he doesn't take care of his feet, and his toes are all messed up. It grosses her out. She doesn't know what she'll do until she's there.
The staff comes around to all the men with letters informing them that somebody will check out tonight. The men need to be packed up before sundown. The men think it all sucks that somebody is going home. Well guys, that's what most reality TV shows are all about. A woman tells Alex she doesn't think he has anything to worry about. He responds that they all thought that about Melanie as well. Andon tells Toni that this has been one of the most stressful mental tests he's ever been through. He doesn't know if it's worth it mentally, to do this to himself. Toni tells him that she doesn't want to lose him. They hug each other. He later muses that everything will be O.K., and what is meant to be, will be. He figures if he hopes and dreams hard enough, it will be. Meanwhile, Dave paces around the Bird room, telling us that the group is much tighter than he thought it would be. He's the only person that is getting stressed out in Paradise. Then we cut to Beau, who has mixed feeling about rooming with Amanda again. The trouble is that he doesn't know if Amanda can get over just being friends. Flashback to the aftermath of the Pandora's Box game, where Amanda tells us she feels like an ass, then the threat to smack him if he tells her they are friends one more time. Amanda's current view is that she and Beau are not dating, and she never thought they would be. Beau's view is that they could be friends and have a good time. He doesn't have a strategy for the game; in fact he doesn't consider it to be a game. He sees it as real life.
At sundown, host Amanda gathers the guests outside by the pool for the roommate selection process. Each of the men will have to select the woman he wants to share a room with for the next week. At the end of it, one man will be left unattached, and have to leave Paradise forever. She then asks Beau how it was being the outsider. He tells her it's been lonely. She asks him if it is fair to ask him if he feels vulnerable. "Absolutely, very much so" he responds. So she tells him that, as the outsider, he'll be the first to select a woman this week. Host Amanda then springs another surprise on the guests. Tonight's surprise is that the men cannot select a woman they are currently rooming with. With that rule in mind, it's time for the selections.
Beau is up first. He walks around the women and selects Amy. Cut to guest Amanda telling us that she knew Beau wouldn't pick her, because they've already lived together. She's not surprised. Host Amanda asks Beau why he picked Amy. He replies it was very simple; he wanted to pick guest Amanda, but he also wanted people to know that he also wanted to be her friend. He could only do that by making a statement. That only really answers the question of why he didn't pick guest Amanda. I have to wonder if Dave told him that Amy put out on her first night with Zack.1 2 3 Next-->
