AIRED:
Welcome to Paradise Hotel! The dream resort where you'll need to hook up in order to stay. If not, you'll have to check out and return to reality. Someone from the audience at home could fly off to Paradise to take their place. Eleven sexy single guests have already arrived. Who will be sent home packing? The girls show up first and toast to their newfound friendships. They get to know each other, but the only thing on Toni's mind is "What will the guys look like?" Meanwhile, the men wait in the hotel's Grand Salon and size up the competition. "Where are the girls?" Alex wonders. The women are ushered in, and the guys are relieved that they're all beautiful. Scott is already convinced that the girls will go for Zack because he doesn't drink and is a bodybuilder. Maybe he has insight into the female mind? Beau already has his eye on one girl in particular. Amanda admits to liking both Beau and Alex, while Amy thinks Zack is cute. Toni likes them all. The group cheers each other with shots of tequila. Host Amanda tells the gathered guests that there are many surprises in store. Their stay is not guaranteed, with one girl leaving this week. Next week, a guy will leave. But first, they are all welcome to jump in the pool. They retreat to the bathrooms. The boys gossip about who they think is cute. Then they get down on the ground to do push-ups in order to look buff in their shorts. Zack does some extra pumping up after everyone has left. In the pool, the chicks rate the guys' bods. The guys check out all the bikini-clad beauties, and make decisions. Andon tries to work over Charla, but she is not interested. She admits that there is no one in this gang that she is physically attracted to. However, Charla does later snuggle on Beau's neck while swimming. Toni is hot for Andon, and as she checks out him playing up all the women, she comes to the conclusion that she'll be voted off first. That evening, it's time to pick roommates. Host Amanda leads the group in the selection process where the ladies get to select their mates. The men will place a matching necklace on the woman he's connected to. There will be one girl without a special bed partner, and if she is still alone at the end of the week, she will go home. Zack believes that Amanda and Kristin are his "types." But when given the chance, Kristin chooses Alex to be her roommate. She thinks he is Abercrombie-cute and the "chill one." Charla's up next and she picks Beau. She says that she can tell who all the other girls would go for. Since Amanda had annoyed her, she chose the guy that Amanda wanted in order to piss her off. Is this a catfight already brewing? Toni goes for Andon because they have a lot in common. Working out might be the number one topic. Zack begins to look worried. Shouldn't he have been the first one gone? Maybe in his mind, but not to the ladies. Melanie gravitates toward Scott because they communicated well. Zack is now seemingly angry at being passed over once more. Amy dances around the guys, but ultimately selects Zack. What a relief! We don't need to see him mad. Or confused. Amy says that Zack makes her laugh. Maybe it's his rock hard physique. Amanda is last, but all the guys are already taken. Whichever guy she chooses will have to decide between the two girls. The loser girl must spend the week alone in the single bedroom. Amanda goes for Beau, as Charla had predicted. The guys place their necklaces around their partners' necks. But Beau needs to decide between Amanda and Charla. Does he like the girl-next-door or the ice queen? He goes for Amanda. Don't count Charla out for long. She may put the moves on another man soon to stay in the game. At dinner, Zack bitches to Amy that he wasn't selected first because he knows he is better than the other guys at the hotel. He had wanted either Amanda or Kristin to pick him. The bad thing is that he is telling this all to Amy -- the one who wanted to room with him in the first place. Beau hints to Amanda that their pairing may be a step leading up to other things. Is love already blooming in paradise? Toni secretly advises Charla to get to know all the guys better so that she can stay there. Charla doesn't want Toni's strategic help. Yet Toni knows that Charla could go after Andon and would probably stab her in the back. Everyone gets to their rooms, and they are all psyched by the accommodations. Everyone except Charla. She is annoyed that her stuff was unpacked into her single room. Then she complains about the drapes. While each couple retires to separate beds, Amy invites Zack to sleep next to her. Is sleep what she had in mind? The next morning, the pair discusses their "activities" from the night before. "How do we play this?" Zack asks, assuring Amy that whatever they did was "awesome." They agree not to say anything to anyone else. The girls eat breakfast together in the Grotto. Amanda jokes that Beau called her "wifey." At the table in the Banyon area, the guys tease Beau that he's already married. Later, Zack and Andon work out in the gym and discuss their living situations. Zack admits that he had his eye on two others, but that he and Amy had slept in the same bed. Andon asks if they cuddled. "No," Zack says. "Just kicked it." Is that what the kids are calling it nowadays? Meanwhile, at the pool, Toni grills Amy. Amy confesses about what she and Zack did the night before. Toni does not seem shocked. Charla comes to Melanie's bed, and Melanie tells her that Andon thinks she's funny. Charla decides to become more of a flirt to make the guys want to room with her. Melanie encourages her to go after Andon, regardless of what that means for Toni. Back at the pool, Amy asks Toni if she is bothered that Charla may go after Andon. "We've got to cover our own tails because now the game is being played," Toni says. -paradiseonfox.commoreless
