Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 15
AIRED:
Amy is frustrated. Last week it was Zack who went home. This week it's her friend Toni. Yet Amy is happy to room with Beau because they are "on the same page." Dave happily notes that there as many new people as there are Originals. Holly hates the division between the groups and Alex vows to stick with the Originals to the very end. Each guest is handed an invitation to attend a "friendly competition." They are brought to a bowling alley, and the winners get to go on an excursion with the new guy. As a former league player, Dave takes his bowling quite seriously. Unlike the others, he refuses to drink alcohol while he bowls. Dave is sure that he, Keith and Beau are the best players. Amy still can't stand Keith, yelling "gutter" every time he tosses the ball. Keith seems to bowl a strike each time. Scott senses the pressure that Dave's put upon himself, and Amy fuels the fire by heckling Dave. Beau and Keith win the game, and Dave accepts his fate like a good loser. Amy continues to be vocal about her animosity toward Keith. He keeps explaining that his eliminating Zack wasn't meant as a personal attack. Amy says that she took it personally. She pledges revenge until Keith's gone. Beau, however, refuses to jeopardize his own future by deliberately being mean to Keith. He warns Amy that she can get her point across by not making enemies with Keith. Meanwhile, Alex conveys to Kristin his concern that Beau will try to influence Amy. Host Amanda informs the group that it's time to bring in another contestant. As par for the course in Paradise, there's a surprise: there is only one contestant and he is someone they are already familiar with. Tom, who competed and lost out to Dave in Week 2, comes down from the Harem Room to boos and cheers from the gang. He is joining Paradise Hotel without opposition and he gets to select his own roommate. Dave is pissed because he worked hard to beat Tom all those weeks ago. Beau, who almost came to blows with Tom via satellite in the studio, is convinced that the new guy is insecure. Everyone else is completely shocked by the arrival. Tom is quick to chat up Charla at the bar. "I like your eyes," he says to her. Dave and Keith are at least pleased that they are joined by another East Coaster in the hotel. They toast Tom's arrival. Alex tells Dave that Beau is looking like a fool for now trying to be Tom's best friend after he dissed him in the L.A. studio round. Dave reminds Charla that, if Tom picks her then he will be sent home. "Doy," she answers. Drunk Charla can't comprehend the whole strategy thing Dave is trying to lay on her, but she agrees. She wouldn't throw away their whole plan. Dave is amazed that Charla admits to liking Tom's New Jersey accent. Dave warns Tom that the Originals will always pick each other over the new people. Tom asks which girl he should pick as his roommate. Dave tells him to go for Holly. Then Keith advises Tom to beware of the cliques. Tom says that he respects what Keith did because he would have done the same thing to Zack. Kristin, Amy and Alex are worried. They now need to work even harder to keep up the Originals' status quo. Alex wants either Keith or Tom to go next. In their room, Scott and Holly become more affectionate. He wants her to give Tom the cold shoulder so that she doesn't become his roommate. Scott and Holly seal the agreement by taking a shower with each other. Charla drunkenly attempts to flirt with Keith in her room by suggesting they bathe together. "I was gonna' see if you wanted to take a bath," he laughs. But he doesn't because Matt already used that line on her. "It didn't work," she says about that incident. Keith tells Charla that Tom took him aside to talk about the game. "Do you want me to take YOU aside?" she says coyly. Reminded of the time Scott rebuffed her advances, Charla becomes frustrated when Keith does the same. Yet Keith doesn't want to take advantage of her inebriated state. Charla sulks. "You're not mad at me?" he asks. She starts to cry. Keith feels bad and attempts to console her. Dave interrupts when he comes into the room to report that Tom's two favorite girls are Amy and Charla. That night, Dave gets into bed at 4 am. Alex and Tara crawl into his room. Dave wakes up unalarmed and sees Alex on the floor next to his bed. Then Alex and Tara sneak into Beau and Amy's room. Hearing noises, Amy freaks out and thinks that she's being haunted by a ghost. Alex and Tara scream to surprise them. The next morning, Tom sings and talks to himself while he dresses. He later plays basketball with Dave and Scott. They want to know who he is going to select as his roommate. Tom isn't sure yet, but he feels bad for making another guy move out. Everyone gathers in the Grand Salon when Host Amanda enters. Tom announces that he has chosen to live with Holly. She doesn't seem pleased. And neither is Scott. But Holly smiles gamely as the two guys trade necklaces. Everyone learns that Tom brought a stuffed monkey named Smokey to the hotel. They all think it's weird. Tom talks to Smokey in his room when he's alone. He designates the side bed as Smokey's. Holly can't take Tom's antics and leaves her room to go to Scott. They kiss in Scott's bathroom. The guests are invited to partake in a Casino Night at the hotel. The guy with the highest winnings will be saved from eviction, and each girl can give all her money to any guy she wants. Dave is so excited he can't see straight. He thinks it's the best idea that Paradise Hotel has ever come up with. Dave warns Tom that he might be the next target for elimination. He and Keith try to give Tom advice on how to team up with the other guys. After Tom leaves, Dave and Keith agree that Tom is kind of clueless. The girls dress up and the boys don tuxedos for Casino Night. Each person is awarded 5000 Paradise Hotel dollars to play with. They will not cash out their earnings until the next day. The winning guy is also given the option to select the woman of his choice and send home another guy. Charla hands over all her money to Dave. He hugs her gratefully. Yet Dave loses at the blackjack table. Much to Alex's chagrin, Keith is up for the night. Alex tells Kristin that is stealing chips in order to prevent Keith from winning. He adds chips to Amy's hand when the dealer isn't looking so that she'll beat Keith. At one point, Alex whispers to Kristin that he has stolen a thousand dollars. Dave starts to improve his pot by racking up $3600 at the roulette wheel even though Kristin is trying to distract him. Alex is annoyed with Dave, and Amy becomes mad that Keith keeps winning. When the time is out, Host Amanda closes the Casino down. She tells the women that they have until tomorrow to hand over their money to any guy they choose. Alex and Kristin sip champagne confidently, believing that they will succeed in winning the Casino Night contest. -paradiseonfox.commoreless

  • You are starting to see the shift in power from the "originals" to the "Barbies" and this shakes people to the core. Just the thought of Dave and the "barbies" controlling things, infuriates Amy and the other "originals". Amy wants revenge on Keith for bomoreless

    I thought that I would fall out laughing when I saw Charla's bottom lip trembling when she had to pick a roommate. I knew exactly who she was going to pick and that she would be kicking out Toni. Why would she care soo much this week when last week and every week before, she wanted all 3 gone. Amy, Toni and Kristen
