Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 12
AIRED:
Keith is bummed out that one of the guys is going home and that he's the one who's going to send him. Although he's only been there for a little over two days, Keith already sees the alliances that have formed. He tells Kristin that he was angry that she threatened him and the way she called him unattractive at Pandora's Box. She apologizes, and says that she does think he is hot. According to Kristin, the longer she's there, the better people have come to look. Yet Keith is convinced that most of the crew in Paradise is a bit "sketchy." Amy is frustrating Zack. "I want you to open up to me so bad that I'm willing to risk my reputation 'cause I yell at you 'cause that's the only way you'll communicate with me," he pleads. "I can't guess about you all the time." Zack wants her to be there for him, saying it's like digging a "treasure" to find the real Amy. "You are my best friend here," he says. "And you're mine," Amy answers. Keith is invited to go on an excursion with one of the girls. There will be a photographer accompanying them to shoot modeling pictures. He first asks Charla and Tara what they think about him taking Kristin, but they don't give him much in the way of advice. When Keith approaches Kristin, she is thrilled to go. He then turns to Toni to see if she's mad. She was his second choice. (Always the bridesmaid, that Toni!) The other boys are floored by Keith's decision of Kristin. Kristin doesn't know why Keith asked her. But Amy is worried. "I don't want him to pick you as his roommate," she tells her. Amy can't read Keith because he's not giving away any clues. Zack advises Kristin to stick to their plan and save Alex in the bedroom selection. Alex is sure that Keith wants him gone. Kristin admits that she has hurt Keith twice and she feels bad about it. She doesn't know what to do now. Zack is convinced that Keith is jealous of him. "I'm his biggest threat," Zack says. "He thinks he's going to be the ripped-ass dude. I'm more ripped than him. I'm more everything than him." Then Zack becomes even more overindulgent. "When I get my power back, it's on," he boasts. After Keith and Kristin leave for their excursion, Alex voices his anxieties to the others. While he feels comfortable with Kristin, she has the freedom to hook up with anyone she wants. He is sure that Keith is breaking up his trio of him, Zack and Scott. Zack thinks Keith is leading everyone astray by choosing Kristin first in the excursion, and then going with another girl in the bedroom selection. Scott is surprised that Keith is playing the game perfectly. As they sip champagne on the sailboat, Kristin tells Keith that if Alex or Zack is sent home, then people will be pissed off. She says that everyone wants Dave out. Everyone also wants Charla gone next, followed by Beau. When Kristin and Keith giddily return to the hotel, everyone becomes concerned, especially when the pair calls it the best time they've ever had. Kristin assures Alex that she didn't do anything wrong. Now Alex is even more convinced that he's on his way out. The next morning, the guys see the pictures from Keith and Kristin's sexy photo shoot. Scott admits that everyone -- including himself -- is freaked out about Keith. Keith tells Charla and Toni that he has no interest in rehashing the roommate selection anymore because he has no clue what he is going to do. Keith walks away from the girls to head to the guys' table, but Toni calls him back. Keith doesn't answer her, not wanting to hear from the women anymore. The old Toni would have let this go. However, this is the new Toni. She walks to Keith's room afterwards with Charla and slams him to "not disrespect the females again." Toni's pissed at the way Keith acted at the table. She thinks he was rude. Keith asks her not to yell at him. "You're not always right," he says. Toni thinks Keith is abusing his power, and she doesn't want him to pick her in the roommate selection. She is scared to lose Scott and Alex. "It's not going to be good" she sighs to herself. In a battle of tennis, Zack and Dave play to see who will have to wear a thong at dinner. Amy cheers for Zack as everyone else watches. Sore loser Zack refuses to wear the thong. Then Alex challenges Dave to a game. Dave beats him as well, but at least Alex shakes his hand like a man when he loses. Smarty pants Dave gets his way by thinking ahead -- he got them to both sign contracts that stipulate they would wear the thongs. As they dress, Alex offers Zack some tissues to stuff his thong. Yet when the boys come out, they're not wearing thongs. They've got on briefs in stead. Tara calls them on it too. Dave comes to dinner gleeful, and they shake his hand. Yet Alex vows to get Dave back at some point. The group enters the ominous roommate elimination ceremony under the cover of rain and thunder. Host Amanda explains that all of the guys except Keith are in jeopardy tonight. However, Keith gets to choose last. Before anything happens, Toni begins to whimper. Alex is first, and he goes directly to Kristin as planned. Beau walks right to Tara. (Was her kissing that good?) He says that he sees truth and honesty in her. "And I respect that," Beau asserts. Scott picks Toni and she hugs his hand on her shoulder. Zack chooses Amy, and she is very pleased. "It's obvious how good me and Amy get along. She's a good influence to be around," he explains. So far the Originals' plan is going according to schedule. Dave selects Charla (of course). Now it's up to Keith. Toni begins the overdramatics and Dave grows worried as usual. Keith slowly goes over to Amy, and she curses at him. Amy bows her head and cries. The now booted Zack stands silent. Are there any thoughts in his head? "I'm just trying to play the game," Keith says. Amy hugs Zack, and when she goes to the couch, she won't sit next to her new roommate Keith. Zack knew that Keith was coming for him because he was intimidated. Zack then tells the gang that he loves all of them, and he hugs each of them as Keith sits stoically. Zack kneels down to console Amy. "It's just a game," he tells her. "It hurts me even more," Zack says to her as he walks off alone. Keith goes back to his room to consider the preceding events. Toni comforts Amy outside. "This is not fun," Amy cries. She knows that her relationship with Zack is not a game. "It's real," she says. Toni goes in to yell at Keith. "What were you thinking?" she screams. But Keith has nothing to say to her. He's not sheepish, but adamant about his decision. Toni storms out. Dave comes to talk to Keith, asking why he decided to kick out Zack. Keith explains that he needed to break up the "foursome." They were out to get him from the start, so how could he trust any of them? From the safety of his own room, Alex calls Keith a creep. Beau thinks Keith doesn't even deserve to be here. (Yet Beau doesn't seem to realize that his own head was on the chopping block not too much earlier.) Charla tells Tara that Beau needs to shut his mouth, and that it's in her best interest to be Keith's friend. Keith wonders if Tara and Charla have his back. He was brave enough to break the foursome, but will they be tough enough to finish what he started? Charla advises Tara that they should merely remain the "dumb models" who control really control the outcome. Toni vows that she will get rid of Keith. Dave, on the other hand, thinks everyone is out of control because Keith is merely playing the game. Who will win?moreless
