When we last left Paradise Hotel, the place had turned into a war zone, with several people fighting. Kavita entered amid the fray and selected Zack as her roommate, making out with him their first night in bed. This pushed guest Amanda into the single room. As we begin the new episode, the couples are living together as follows:
Charla and Dave: Yellow Room
As we join the guests in Paradise, Charla confronts Dave about the rumors concerning their sexual activity (which is none). Apparently, Dave is joking around about it, saying, "I did not have sex with that woman." Cut to a scene where Dave pulls Charla's thong out of his pants pocket, feigning surprise at finding it there, and indeed saying, "I did not have sex with that woman." She wants Dave to go over to everybody and straighten out the record while she watches. He agrees, and goes over and tells the group he hasn't done anything with Charla. Zack tells him to drop the whole act because it's old and stupid. Charla just wants everybody clear on the matter. "OK, fine," responds Dave.
Later, the men and women are eating separately again, and a waiter delivers an envelope for guest Amanda. She opens it and finds out she's getting a private luxury excursion with the man of her choice. Toni tells her that everybody knows she's going to pick Beau, though Charla tells her that she can have Dave. Toni tells her to have fun, no matter what she does or whom she picks.
Guest Amanda wanders around the hotel, and we're treated to some flashbacks documenting the ups and downs of her relationship with Beau. Then she picks him for their outing. It's a boat trip, complete with waterskiing. Beau looks like me on the skis: having fun and wanting to do it, but not actually being very good. Beau tells her he's trying to impress her. She laughs and tells him he hasn't impressed her yet. Later on they both try waterskiing at the same time, and guest Amanda doesn't do very well either. They finally give up and go to a beach, where they write "Amanda & Beau" in the sand. How touching. Beau tells us that it's been great to get away from the hotel and to get to know guest Amanda better on a personal level. The experience with her today is more like what they'd experience on a real date without any of the other guests around. After they eat, Beau sprays her with sunscreen and rubs it in her skin. Guest Amanda tells us that when it comes down to it, the object is to stay in the game as long as possible, and that's what they are trying to do for each other.
Back at the hotel, Charla and Dave are having another discussion. She doesn't believe anything he's saying, but he responds by throwing the way she publicly humiliated him back in her face. He says it was a horrible thing she did to him, but he's forgiven her. She goes on to tell him that just because she did something wrong doesn't mean she doesn't feel wronged at the same time. After the talk, Charla stalks off and Dave immediately goes over to where the other men are. He asks them, "Is she out of her mind?" while the guys laugh. He tells them that they agreed what she said about her not wanting him to touch her bare skin was a horrible thing, but they agreed to put it aside. Charla told him she was happy that he forgave her. Dave is stunned that Charla thinks they can go on after the way she embarrassed him. As far as Dave is concerned, he's had it with her.
That evening, Charla tells Dave and Kavita good night. "Going to sleep early?" asks Dave. "Don't tell me what to do," responds Charla. Charla then kisses Kavita on each cheek and goes to bed. Dave tells her he'll be in their room soon. Then he starts plotting with Kavita. He suggests that if she picks him, Charla will be more likely to stay, though he then concedes he thinks nobody will want to keep her. He goes on and says that he's being honest with her, and tells her that while he likes and made an effort to get to know Charla, Kavita saw what happened at the Pandora's Box game. He says he's probably the nicest guy at the resort, but she made him out to be creepy. Kavita contradicts him on that, saying that people won't think that he's a perv, just that Charla doesn't like people touching her.
Meanwhile Toni and Scott are having drinks at the bar. Toni tells him she owes him a big apology, because she broke trust with him. Flashback to last week's roommate selection, where she chose Alex over him (and Zack). She apologizes to him, but Scott tells her he's having fun; the best time of his life.
Another group has formed on the steps, where Zack tells Kavita that he said she acts like a cheerleader, and he still says she acts like a cheerleader. Well, according to the Fox official show website, Amy is the pro cheerleader, though her caption last episode said she was a dental assistant. Kavita tells Zack it's obvious he doesn't like cheerleaders. Zack responds by saying that apparently she knows all about him after being in Paradise for two days. He brags that every girl he dated in high school was a cheerleader. He points at Kavita, and tells her he, in fact, dated the whole cheerleading squad. Kavita tells him it's rude to point at somebody like that. He responds by saying he'll point at whomever he wants to. She tells him she was raised to think it was rude. He then dismisses her thoughts because she was raised in Florida, then says she sounds dumb and cocky. He then gets on her case about pointing, and she apologizes, and tells him to point at anybody he wants.1 2 3 4 Next-->
