The next day, Scott and Dave discuss strategy. Dave suggests that one of them should pick guest Amanda. Scott thinks Dave should pick her. Dave asks why it would make more sense for him to pick her over Scott, unless Scott's going to pick Toni again. Scott says he's not going to. Later, Scott tells Zack he thinks there will be some interesting twists and some drama. Scott decides that as much as he likes Dave, he has to watch out for himself first. Zack agrees; then Dave walks in. Apparently they all agree that guest Amanda is the X-factor, and nobody wants to risk their fate on her. Dave is torn because he doesn't trust guest Amanda either. You know what, guys? I wouldn't trust her to spit on me if I were on fire. As Dave packs, he tells us he thinks he's screwed because he thinks Scott is picking Charla and she's agreed to pick him. He decides he's either going to pick somebody else and hope they pick him, or else just pick Charla anyway and hope she picks him. Uh, I think that covers about every situation, Dave. In any event, he doesn't think he'll be picked and thinks he's going home.
Back to Jason and guest Amanda. Jason tells her he's in love with her and asks her why she wants to stay so badly. She tells him that if she leaves, she'll always wonder what she missed. She needs to find out for herself. He says he doesn't want to sound selfish, but he wants her to hurry up and be with him. She recalls various memories (shown to us via flashbacks) of her time at Paradise Hotel: her entrance, the moment she picked Beau, the luxury excursions, the fights, the tears, the kissing, etc. She says it's going to be the hardest decision she's ever made. As they talk, staff member Alex comes in and tells Jason a staff car will be arriving at 8:00 to pick him up. Jason tells guest Amanda he wants her to go with him. She tells him that she knows it took a lot for him to come to Paradise Hotel, but she feels lucky to be there as well, and wants to finish the experience. So she's staying. She watches as he packs up and thanks him for coming. She tells him she loves him with all her heart (I guess all that flirting and kissing with Beau, Matt, and Alex didn't mean anything), then tells him to stop crying. He tells her he loves her and they kiss each other goodbye. With that, Jason leaves Paradise forever.
It's roommate selection time; as usual, the guys each need to pick the woman with whom they wish to room for the next week. Host Amanda reminds us that after the selections are made, one of the men will be checking out of Paradise Hotel forever. This week, there are no restrictions, so the men can pick any woman they want. We learn that the order in which the men select was determined by a random draw; Dave gets to pick first. A flashback is shown of him talking about the Charla/Scott arrangement. He stops for a moment by Charla, then moves away and selects guest Amanda. Charla gives him a dirty look. Well, Charla, if you hadn't publicly humiliated him, perhaps he might have picked you. To be honest, if you'd treated me like you treated Dave, I'd rather have gone home than room with you. You should be happy - you won't have to worry as much about him accidentally touching your bare skin. Host Amanda asks him why he picked guest Amanda over Charla. He responds that guest Amanda is a great girl (uh, if you say so Dave), and he’d gotten word that if he picked Charla, he'd be going home. Now Charla looks extremely put out. Cry me a river.
Matt has the next pick. Before he selects, host Amanda asks him if he can say what's it's like to actually be on the show. He tells her it was easier back home on the couch, but he's had a good time. Matt chooses Toni. We get the flashback of him during selection where he said he'd trust Toni the most. Beau is next to pick, and host Amanda asks him if it is fair to say that he and guest Amanda have had their ups and downs. After a flashback of one of their "downs," Beau picks Toni. "Oh, why me?" asks Toni, in clear reference to two weeks ago when she also had to make a choice between men. Beau tells us Toni is awesome and that's why he's picking her. Scott's turn. He picks Charla, just as Dave suspected. Host Amanda tells us Scott and Charla have had a strong bond since day one and wants to know if this is why Scott picked her. Scott tells her it is. He understands her, thinks a few of the other people are just starting to understand her, and thinks she's a great person. Charla is happy again and thanks Scott. It's time for Zack to pick. He picks Amy. Host Amanda asks him if she even has to ask why; he tells her no. Yes, Zack, we all know the score - you've been having sex with her from day one. Alex is the last to pick. He picks Kristin, noting in voiceover that he could make with Toni and still pick Kristin because it was the smartest decision. I have to agree. Look what happened to Andon when he ignored two available women: he ended up checking out because he was rejected twice.
So four couples have been formed: guest Amanda & Dave, Scott & Charla, Kristin & Alex, and Zack & Amy. They go sit on the couch while Toni chooses between Matt and Beau, with the rejected man forced to check out. We get flashbacks of the Beau and Toni’s fight contrasted with Toni and Matt kissing in the pool. Toni tells Beau she loves him like a brother and thinks the world of him. She tells Matt he's amazing and an amazing guitar player, but she wants to keep Beau. It's a tough thing, and she didn't want to send him home, but she places the necklace around Beau's neck and they are officially roommates for the next week. She hugs Matt and asks him to forgive her, and with that, host Amanda takes him away to check out of Paradise Hotel forever. As he leaves, he gives parting advice for new people coming into the hotel: Don't come on strong; just get to know everybody at the hotel and trust them. If they don't give a reason to trust them back, then start playing the game.
Back in the Los Angeles studio, host Amanda notes that Matt's stay was short and reminds us that every time somebody checks out, a member of the opposite sex must check in. She then introduces the world's most famous hotel guests via satellite - the cast of Paradise Hotel. After the introduction, host Amanda informs us that the paradiseonfox.com website has been flooded with applications to join the show, and tonight the gentlemen of the hotel will choose which woman gets a ticket to Paradise. The first girl is a 21-year-old student from Lake Elsinore, California, Tara Gerard. I know exactly where Lake Elsinore is because they have a minor league baseball team, the Lake Elsinore Storm, and I used to go to their baseball field (called "The Diamond") to watch my own favorite team (the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes) when they played there. The city is mostly known for its skydiving. In any case, Tara's audition video starts with her taking off a motorcycle helmet and telling us she'd always been a girly-girl - until she got her bike. Now she's still a girly-girl - but with machine in between her legs. As she golfs, she tells us that she doesn't think she'll turn into a tomboy even though she loves boy activities. She'll always be a girly-girl. She likes to laugh and to make people laugh. As far as the “prude-to-nude” scale, she’s somewhere in the middle. She promises she'll bring humor, personality, and tons of bikinis if the men select her. Host Amanda tells us that a girl can never have too many shoes or too many bikinis! Uh, I'd have to disagree. I mean, I don't WANT to see Roseanne Arnold or Rosie O'Donnell in a bikini. Host Amanda asks Tara if any of the men at the hotel are her particular type, and if not, what is her type of man. Tara says she has two words for that - Jim Carrey. She's heard Alex is a bit of an Ace Ventura type, so maybe Alex is her type. Alex agrees with Tara and is obviously pleased with her answer.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
