Welcome back to Paradise Hotel. When we last left the guests, they were living in the hotel as follows:
Charla and Matt: Yellow Room
We begin our adventure in Paradise with Amy asking guest Amanda, "What's going on with Jason?" Guest Amanda says that Jason wants to be with her and wants her to go home with him. Amy asks her how she feels about it; does she want to start with him? She says she does. Later on, Jason and guest Amanda talk, with Jason asking her to leave with him. In confessional, guest Amanda says that Jason is the only guy she's ever really wanted to have want her for a girlfriend. She tells Jason that she wants him, but she doesn't want to leave Paradise. She's confused. As Jason and guest Amanda frolic in the pool together, guest Amanda reminds us that they only broke up because she moved and they couldn't handle the long distance relationship. She claims they both know each other inside and out.
Meanwhile, Beau tells Zack that Jason is in love with guest Amanda. He feels sorry for the guy, because while Jason claims guest Amanda hasn't cheated on him, Beau claims that Jason's just the guy she hasn't cheated on yet. He goes on to say that she is now saying she has no attraction for him, even though she was the one who wanted the relationship to begin with. Zack tells him that guest Amanda has dug herself a hole with her relationships with both Alex and Beau. "Is anyone gonna want Amanda now that this guy's come?" he asks. Beau immediately says no.
Later on, Beau confronts Amanda, telling her she's distanced herself from everybody. She concedes she has and she feels bad about it. Doesn't look like it from my perspective. She reveals that Jason wants her to leave with him. Beau responds by stating that she still has feelings for him. "Totally," she replies. Beau says it's a big decision, and wonders if the only reason she was at Paradise Hotel was to have a relationship. She says she never wanted a relationship with Beau. Flashback to when she told Beau she thought her mom would think he was adorable and her dad would like him. Guest Amanda - give up the lies already. The guests aren't letting you get away with them, the producers aren't letting you get away with them, and I'm not letting you get away with them.
Beau later chats with Jason, telling him it's cool he and guest Amanda have their relationship. He says he'd like a good relationship. Jason tells him girls are hard to understand, a sentiment Beau agrees with. They hit the bar together, but we get a flashback of Beau telling Alex he'd tell Jason everything about what's been happening and how guest Amanda has been behaving. Time for the gossip to begin. Beau tells Jason that within eight hours of meeting him, guest Amanda said she'd be jealous if he even went and talked to another girl. Jason tells Beau that within two months of knowing her, she was picking out baby names. He thinks that was a little intense. Beau complains about guest Amanda nagging him and Jason agrees, pitching in that her voice is aggravating. OK, guys, is this the girl you really want to fight over? You both should be running, not walking, in the opposite direction!
Over in the Yellow Room, Matt tells Charla he's in a lot of pain. Apparently his back is killing him. I think he's hinting he'd like a massage, but Charla tells us in voiceover that she doesn't trust Matt: he's got shifty eyes and shifty hands. Matt wants to know what Charla thinks about him. She tells him she felt a lot more comfortable with him the first night than she does now. Flashback to the massages they gave each other on their first night. Now she's not comfortable with all the cuddling. In confessional, she admits she's aloof and distant because she's just that kind of a person. I think the proper label is introvert - I know; I'm one myself. Matt goes on to tell her she's sweet candy, but he can't get the wrapper off. He says it's hard to not touch her sometimes because she's so cute. She says he doesn't have to say stuff like that, but he says he does. He then touches her briefly and tells her to "deal with it." She deals with it by getting off the bed and leaving the room.
That evening, a staff member tells the assembled guests that a party will start in exactly ten minutes. They've made one of the ballrooms out to be a discotheque. Everybody starts dancing with people other than their roommates. Charla makes suggestive moves with Scott, while Toni gives Alex a lap dance. Charla tells us that disco night was the most fun she's had at the hotel. Dave agrees, and Scott and Beau tell him he's officially part of the group. Dave thinks he's going home, but they disagree with him. They want him to stay with the girls, but Dave thinks the girls like Matt too much.
Toni and Alex are doing some necking, and Toni tells him she wants to stay with him. Alex says she can do whatever she wants with him. So they go off to a bedroom, get in bed (clothes still on), and continue their passion. Suddenly, Alex gets up, goes to the bathroom, and throws up. She thanks him for the smell, and he tells her to shut up. “'I made out with Toni, then I threw up,'” she snaps. “That's fabulous! So good for my rep!”
The next day, Alex, Scott, and Beau talk about the upcoming eviction. If any of them have to go, they want it to be Matt. Beau tells us the last week has been a roller coaster and nobody knows where the turns are. The group wonders who Matt will pick. We cut to the Yellow Room, where Matt notes how high the tensions are. People are whispering to each other and trying to figure out who will select whom under various scenarios. Matt tells us privately that he's still an outsider, but with so many twists, nobody knows what will happen. The group later wonders where guest Amanda is. Well, she's making out with Jason in one of the guest rooms, that's where! Beau tells us that Jason's presence took the pressure off of him, because the girls know he's free. Several people are bothered that on decision day, guest Amanda isn't with them to help make decisions. Alex tells everybody his first pick will be Kristin. Beau says that he's screwed, then goes off to tell Kristin, and says they've got to figure out a way for him not to pick her. She's his number one choice as well. In confessional, Alex says that two days ago, Beau was all upset about his flirting with guest Amanda, said their friendship meant nothing, and that he was a horrible person; now Beau wants him to save him from going home - all out of a situation Beau put himself in. He thinks it says a lot about Beau. Zack's confessional also focuses on Alex and Beau; he tells us they call each other "friend" but they don't act like it. Elsewhere, Beau, Kristin, and Toni talk, and Kristin says they need to come up with a new plan. Beau says they've already tried and it won't work.
As the guests swim that evening, Toni raves about Matt, saying how full of life, energy, and personality he is. He's totally cool. Later, Beau catches a live scorpion. Toni tells him to take it away from her, but Beau makes it a trust issue. She's not buying that, telling him she doesn't trust him with it, and for him to watch his words. She tells him trust is over. He tells her to shut up and the real fireworks begin. "Excuse me?" she asks. He says he just wanted her to trust him, but she wants to know why he told her to shut up. He responds he just wanted her to trust him with the bug, but she tells him he only gets one freebie with the "shut up" remark. Nobody talks to her like that - not even her parents! She tells him to remember that.1 2 3 Next-->
