Paradise Hotel, July 16: Fighting DirtyPage 3
View Printable version of this article
Over lunch, Toni asks Tara what she thinks so far. Tara replies that there is a clique going on, and that it's hard to crack. Toni notes that Tara came in at the perfect time, because she got the freedom card (ability to pick a man without competition at the next selection). It gives her a chance. In confessional, Tara notes that Toni could be her friend, but she wouldn't choose to be. A waiter appears and hands an envelope to Zack. It's another game of Pandora's Box, where every guest gets to write down a question they want answered by another guest. A few guests don't look happy, as this game has generally resulted in some hurt feelings. However, everybody puts a question into Pandora's Box.
Zack begins the game by noting it's his favorite time of the week, and pulls out the first question. It's for Beau. Is there a guy he feels he can't trust? If so, who and why? He responds that the one guy who's been up and down is Dave. He says Dave has been acting abnormal and he told him he was playing the game too much. Next, Tara is told that she's borderline rude and hasn't spent five minutes to try to get to know people. Is that her strategy, or is she really just rude? Tara says, "I'm rude," then says she was just kidding. She says she's not rude, but has been standoffish. It's a tight group, so she felt out of place, and wanted to observe them for a while. She wished to find out about the cliques and relationships, but she wasn't trying to be rude. Charla reads the next question, which is for Dave. It says that a reliable source says that he has stated he thought he was smarter than everybody else. "A) Everybody disagrees, or B) How does he feel now that nobody can trust him at all?" He says it would suck if nobody thought that they can trust him. Charla asks him if he had said at any time that he was smarter than everybody else. He denies it, but Toni spits out, "Bullsh*t!" She goes on to say that she's the reliable source, and rants that he's put down everybody. If he puts down her friends, they are going to fight.
Uh, Toni, I think you just did fight Dave in the last scene – and you lost! Now I'm also going to tell you something even your parents don't say to you - SHUT UP! The only flashback shown of Dave commenting on who was smart was of him stating that he thought both Alex and Scott were smart. Go home and watch the tapes, and you'll find the producers aren't letting anybody get away with lies. Every time one is told, a flashback is shown to contradict the lie. While I'm at it, you're a snobby, self-centered bitch. You've treated every newcomer with contempt from the moment they arrived, or, in this case, even before, when you said wanted to kill Tara as her initiation. Why? Probably because she's got you beat in looks, personality, youth, and brains. As far as your chest goes, if the only reason a guy wants to go out with you is because of the implants, what is he really dating - you or a few bags of saline? Personally, I prefer natural breasts, regardless of size. One last thing – you're 29 now... and next year, you'll be 30!
Dave responds to the rant by smiling and telling Toni she's an overactress. She tells him that even if it takes her leaving to do it, she wants him gone. Dave just smirks and says, "fine." Toni keeps accusing him of lying. Dave calmly says that he isn't lying, then gets interrupted by Toni saying that she apologizes for cutting him off (Uh, Toni, you just did it AGAIN). Alex wants to know who heard him say it. Toni says she overheard him saying it, but when asked whom he was talking to, she only says, "Some people." We get the flashback of Dave talking to Charla about who was smart, and when Charla said Scott was smart, Dave simply agreed, then said that Alex was really smart. Dave tells the group he values his intelligence, and thinks he's smart, then gets interrupted by Zack, who claims Dave isn't smarter than he is. Zack goes on to say that Dave has no street smarts, and it's game on. He won't forgive him. He then asks Dave if he thinks he's smarter than Scott. Dave says no, then tells him they are trying to put words in his mouth. Toni then jumps back in, saying Dave categorized her as stupid, and says she'd rather risk her position in the game than hurt anybody (except Dave apparently). Dave calmly replies that he likes everybody a lot, and gets cut off by Toni once again, who says he doesn't. Dave says he's sorry if feelings were hurt, and they can choose to believe him or not, but it's bullsh*t.
Beau reads the next question to guest Amanda. It notes that she's taken (flashback to guest Amanda telling Jason she loved him), so can she explain why she should continue the game? She says Jason shouldn't make a difference in her attitude, and since his visit, she's been more open. She goes on to say that after her and Beau's kiss, she made it clear that she wasn't going to hook up with anybody. Remember what I said about lies being immediately exposed? Flashbacks are shown of her in bed kissing Matt, Alex, and Zack at different times. Guest Amanda wants to know why people think she shouldn't continue in the game. Beau responds by asking her to say why she should be at Paradise Hotel. She says she's not married and is free to do anything she wants. When asked if she wants to be with Jason, she agrees. Alex then remarks that a few days ago, she said she couldn't wait for her to get to Florida with him so she could tear his clothes off. She says she was joking. Alex says jokingly or not, it's hard for him to take her seriously. She repeats that it was a joke. Alex then asks her why she didn't leave with Jason. She said she wanted to do this show for herself, and she wants to go through with the game just as much as everybody else does. She is determined to stick it out, see how long she can last, make friends, and isn't ready to go. She starts crying, and everybody pretty much looks uncomfortable.
Next week: The Monkey Room occupants (guest Amanda and Dave) react to the nasty round of Pandora's Box. Zack calls Dave a liar. Amy calls somebody a liar. Tara gets to pick her roommate. Tears are shed as a woman goes home. The women get to select a rapper or a model as the next man to enter Paradise. We don't know who they pick, but it looks like Dave takes advantage of a chance to mock somebody instead of being on the receiving end. All this takes place at a special night - Tuesday instead of Monday. Stay tuned for the show on Fox and the recaps on RealityNewsOnline.
