At breakfast, Alex asks Scott how the talk with Toni went. He says she's been biting her tongue too much, holding too much back, and we'll now be seeing the "real" Toni. The men laugh, and Beau says he's glad that The Hulk is going to come out. Over at the women's table, Toni confirms it by saying it will be a whole new ball game for her. A flashback of shown of her screaming at Dave during the last Pandora's Box game. She goes on to say she's going to have to face herself in the mirror, and that's all she cares about now. "About time," responds Amy. Toni tells them she's going to voice her opinion, but be prepared, because it's going to be the truth. She has no outlet, and while she didn't know which way was up before, she does now. She wants openness and honesty.
OK Toni, since you asked for honesty, you're a bitch.
Back at the men's table, Dave is flabbergasted to hear that Toni thinks she's been holding back. He resents her making him out to be the bad guy and says she'll never be his friend. He says she goes from being Toni to morphing into this "thing," and Alex acts out morphing into a gorilla.
Host Amanda Byram and Keith arrive at Paradise Hotel, and Amanda introduces him to the group. She reminds the guests that Keith will spend the week in the Black Room alone the for the week, then he'll break up a couple, sending an existing man home. Handshakes and hugs are given out, then Dave tells him it's a tradition to take the new people to the bar, where they have a drink and make a toast. Keith tells us the women are beautiful, just what he expected. He thinks Charla has a good body, but he's most attracted to Tara. She has a beautiful face, and he wants to spend the next few days seeing if anything happens. Kristin thinks he's good looking. Dave suggests Keith have one of the ladies show him around, but he wants Zack to do the honors. Zack does so, and they chat about some of the guests, and tells him Tara is talking like she wants to hook up.
That evening, the guests go swimming and Kristin tells Keith while he can pick whoever he wants, she's going to tell him where to score points. She suggests he'll have five girls against him if he doesn't make the right decision, but doesn't tell him what it is yet. Keith tells us he feels under pressure, as everybody is going around, talking, and making alliances. He has no idea what he's going to do. He later tells Tara he feels secluded and Tara tells him she felt the same way during her first week. She says that Dave and Charla trust each other, and that's the only reason they are still there. She indicates other couples (such as Amy and Zack) as well. He thinks it would be good for her if he broke up the pack. She says it would be good for everybody to have no more married couples and all that crap. He thinks it would be crazy to eliminate Zack, but Tara laughs and tells him that the coupled guests don't expect to be broken up. They think it would be too intimidating and are insecure. Keith says they should all feel insecure. He tells her that Kristin already threatened him (as shown in flashback), and Tara says he's safe with either her or Charla. He agrees to go along with her plan, apparently not remembering the promise Tara made to guest Amanda shortly before she stabbed her in the back. "Wow, people are going to crap their pants," she comments.
Over backgammon, Keith asks Alex and Zack what they would do in his position. Alex indicates their answers would be biased, as they both would be looking to save their own ass. Zack states he doesn't want Alex or Scott to go, but can deal with anybody else leaving. He says all of the girls and most of the guys love him and Alex. They tell him Beau is mad because guest Amanda is gone. Dave comes by and tells Keith they only have a few days to prove to him who they are. In voiceover, Dave tells us Tara used her power last week to help the group by sending guest Amanda home, but doesn't know if Keith will do it. He notes that Keith has the power to send any guy home, and every man is worried.
Over dinner, the group toasts Keith's first day in Paradise. Keith notes the interaction between the couples, particularly Beau and Tara. His voiceover reminds us he's most attracted to Tara. However, she and Beau are exchanging long looks at the table and head back to the Blue Room together. They get in bed and make out. Tara's voiceover indicates people might be annoyed with Beau, but she likes him.
It's another evening and Beau is concerned he's being treated like an outcast and a scapegoat. Kristin says she's learned to block him out and Zack says he keeps interrupting conversations. In confessional, Beau pleads guilty to the charge, but dismisses it. Zack starts complaining that Kristin, Scott, Amy, Alex, and Toni don't know him at all, a conversation Charla overhears (interestingly, Keith, Tara, Charla, Beau, and Dave were excluded, and, except for Beau, I don't even think he's ever tried to get to know them). Later, Amy visits him in his bathroom and they start talking about Keith, as do Charla and Tara in another area. Tara reveals that she thinks Keith has made a decision about which girl to pick. Flashback to their conversation at the bar. Charla thinks they shouldn't jump to conclusions. Zack tells Amy Keith is going to shock everybody at the last minute, and thinks Dave and Beau are the underdogs.
The next day's lunch features a staff member bringing another envelope, this time to Charla. It's another round of everybody's favorite game, Pandora's Box. Every hotel guest will get to write down a question they want answered by the guest of their choice, and put it in the box. That evening, the questions will be asked and, if history means anything, people are going to fight and have feelings hurt.
The guests gather around and the first question is for Kristin. It notes she talked to Keith a lot the previous evening and asks if she's attracted to him. She denies being attracted to him, which causes Keith's face to fall. Kristin says every guy at the hotel is very good looking, but she's not attracted to him at all. A few people clap, but Keith's not smiling at all. A question for Amy asks her if she and Zack are in love. Neither Zack nor Amy like the question, and Amy says love is a word she takes seriously. She denies they are in love, though thinks there is potential for it in the future. Keith is asked which girl he wouldn't miss in Paradise, and why. He names Amy, saying that he doesn't know her, he doesn't communicate with her, and they haven't talked. Amy and Zack don't look happy at the answer.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
