Last time on Paradise Hotel, Tara found herself with the power to take any man she wanted – and force one of the existing women to check out. After promising Charla and guest Amanda to keep the three of them there, she broke her word and selected Beau, forcing guest Amanda to check out of Paradise Hotel forever. That left the couples living together as follows:
Toni and Scott: Yellow Room
The women had selected Keith, the male model, as the next guest, but before he arrives, the guests discuss his selection. Amy and Kristin had voted for Jay, which means the other three women voted for Keith. Or did they? Toni says she meant to vote for Jay, but she screwed up. Bet that makes both Jay and Keith feel good. Alex says the girls should pick whoever they wanted, noting that none of the girls wanted Tara to come. Bet that make Tara feel good. Toni claims nobody liked her when she arrived. Zack wonders why she would say things like that. Alex then states the girls picked a male model. Amy says she and Kristin didn't, and Toni says they can blame the whole thing on her. She wasn't paying attention. She gets up and leaves in a huff, after apologizing to Kristin and Amy. Zack starts expressing his dislike of the way Toni left the table (apparently she's done it three weeks in a row) and Kristin asks him to stop. "Why don't you tell her to ******* stop?" he retorts. He dares them to go after her, and says he will. He wants her to grow up. Some of the other men are sick of her behavior as well and finally Kristin goes off to talk to Toni. Toni tells Kristin she's disappointed her and Amy, but Kristin shrugs it off, saying it's no big deal.
Zack and Amy leave the table together and head towards the Butterfly Room. Zack tells her he can't take Toni's attitude any longer. They hop into bed and Zack calls Toni an actress. Amy says that Toni's been like that since day one, but Zack thinks she's gotten worse over the past few weeks. Back at the table, Dave states that for the 10th consecutive time, the Tony Award goes to Toni. "Now accepting the Tony Award on behalf of Toni, Toni," he goes on to say. The other guests at the table smirk. Cutting back to Toni, she's still thinking she disappointed Kristin and Amy. However, Kristin says she's only disappointed in the way she's talking. Toni tells her she's had it and wants to go home. So do I, Toni, so do I! Kristin tells her not to tell anybody else – it's bad news saying it. Back in bed, Amy wants Zack to talk about Toni, but he takes the opportunity to complain that he has to initiate everything from conversations to sex. Amy asks him if she said something wrong. Zack tells her she doesn't show she's very attracted to him. She sarcastically replies that she's sorry she doesn't want to have sex with him every waking moment. "Right. That's what I'm asking for," he responds, just as sarcastically. Over in the Monkey Room, Charla tells Dave that Zack is the most immature, insensitive, inconsiderate, disrespectful to women man she's ever met in her life, and she's met a lot of jerks. She thinks Zack doesn't like her because he knows he can't have her. She goes on to say that he's either intimidated or lacks confidence with women who respect themselves.
Even after their exchange of sarcastic remarks, Amy gets into bed and into Zack's arms, where he expresses his dislike of the way Keith treated him during the selection ceremony. Zack had taken the opportunity to mock Keith's profession (male model), and asked him if he'd worry about his makeup coming off if he got in the pool. The flashback of Keith's response, in which he told Zack he wouldn't be worried about his makeup, he'd be worried about his girl. Zack, that's what you get when you engage in a battle of wits without a weapon. Amy tells Zack not worry, because he won't pick her. She'll make sure he knows not to. Zack goes on to say he's scared about what the people back home will think about him and Amy. He says he's never taken any girl seriously except her. However, she's going to leave him, and he won't go to Los Angeles to be with her. He can't be open with somebody who's going to leave him. Amy tells him if what they have is real, she won't walk out on him. Meanwhile, I want to smack them both. Zack keep ranting that she doesn't know him, then says he won't open up to her because she's going to leave him. Meanwhile, Amy, despite the comments and treatment, still jumps in bed with him. Maybe they deserve each other.
Over in the Monkey Room, Dave suggests Charla should trust people more. She replies that if she felt those people had earned her trust, she would. However, these people stab each other in the back every day. Dave understands her point. Charla goes on to say that Zack is ignorant and oblivious to anybody but himself. Outside, Scott and Kristin hang out together, with him claiming she's never kissed him (she has; during the kissing game a few weeks ago she kissed all the men – passionately). He says he's not suggesting anything, and doesn't want to do it now, but she gives him a good one. The other guests note the action and take interest. Scott and Kristin keep on going and Toni gets pissed off. She says she's going to bed and stalks off to the Yellow Room and climbs in bed. Kristin goes over the group and asks where Toni is, and the rest of them tell her she's pissed and gone to bed. Scott goes into the Yellow Room, leading Toni to get out of the big bed and climb in the little one. Scott wonders what happened.
Outside, Alex and Kristin go swimming (with Kristin still in her clothes) and start getting close. He bites her top and pulls it open, giving us a nice view from the ceiling camera of her open top. They start kissing and by the time the scene changes, she's not wearing a top anymore. Later they climb into bed together. Nothing is shown, but much is implied.
The next day Scott can't figure out why Toni is so pissed. He notes that five days ago she was kissing Alex (as shown in flashback, and they were going hot and heavy). She says her thought pattern was all over the place. He claims she holds it all in, then snaps at people (flashback to when Beau told her to shut up, and her subsequent rant). He goes on to tell her she's kissed a lot of people, but he hasn't kissed anybody (uh, you just DID in the last scene, and you got your share of action in the kissing game a few weeks ago). She tells him she felt stupid after he spent three minutes kissing Kristin and asks if he understands that. He does, and she goes on to tell him she always thought he was hot. He tosses the way she slept in the small bed back at her, as well as the way she left the group without telling him goodbye, and the way she won't shake his hand back in her face. He says it's bull****. She tells him she just wasn't comfortable sleeping in the big bed. He claims he's been cool about it, whereas a lot of other guests would have snapped right back at her. "Well, bring it," she responds.1 2 3 Next-->
