Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 24
AIRED:
Can you handle even more intrigue, plotting and frantic screaming? Hope so, because it's time for more PH! To start things off, Melanie says that she's really excited to be the girl chosen to return. Then she tells Desiree she's happy Dave didn't pick her because now she doesn't have to lie to his face that she likes him. In their room, Dave, in touch with the people as always, doesn't think Melanie will hate them, as Charla posits. Beau, continuing his strict "no shirt" policy, hangs with Amy, Desiree, Tom and Melanie. Charla says the others are jealous of her. She's sorry she knows how to play this game. At the same time, Amy says she won't play the game and stoop to their level. Charla sardonically says she'd like to sit down and watch the tapes with Amy and tell her how great she is. Also, Charla is sorry Amy's man kissed her and everyone else here. To back up Charla, we see clips of Zack with Charla, Melanie, Toni, Kristin, Amanda and Kavita. Beau says they're in the game seriously now. Amanda assembles the group for a little bit of roommate selection. One of the gals is going to be left as the vulnerable outsider. For a twist, Melanie and Beau will choose roommates first, and nobody else can horn in on their picks. Beau opts for Amy. At a time when every girl was available. He says she's "one of my best friends' girlfriends, so I have to take care of her." Apparently the time Zack openly questioned Beau's character is just water under the bridge. Melanie then picks Keith because, "I'm trying to eliminate Tara or Charla." Nice poker face, girl! Desiree picks Tom and Holly goes for Scott. Tara also chooses Tom so Charla can have Dave to herself. Charla picks Dave "because he's my best friend." Forced to choose between Desiree and Tara, Tom makes a little speech first. He's trusted Desiree the most and thinks the single this week will have some kind of power, so he wants her to have it. So he opts for Tara as a roomie. Back in their room, Dave and Charla laugh about how the others finally tried to play the game tonight. "And good for them!" In their room, Beau tells Tom they have a group of four they need to get out. In a typical understatement, Amy chimes in, "The way I see it, it's good versus evil." No word on whether Saruman and his army of Orcs are on Amy's or Charla's side. In bed, Charla and Dave continue gloating while in the other room, Tom and Beau continue restating their mission. The Beau says he's starting up an army and it's time to go on the attack, then he imitates a tail gunner in the South Pacific Theatre. "Bup bup bup bup bup bup bup bup bup bup!" The next day in the pool, Beau tells Desiree they need to get the Barbies off with dignity and honor. And a machine gun turret. At lunch. Dave says he wishes he could hang out with everybody. Much better to be fake to somebody's face than mean. Desiree doesn't get this. And starts being mean in Dave's face. Dave suggests that she should leave the table if she can't be polite. Desiree tells Dave to shut up and doesn't budge. Later, the staff delivers notes inviting the guests to a "jungle party." Costumes will be provided. Dave looks for an outfit and says "there's leopards and zebras and snakes." Oh my. Charla doesn't want to follow the crowd and thinks about being a snake. Beau loves the delicious irony! Not realizing Charla picked the snake garb as a joke! Man oh man! Jungle preparations ensue and then the party gets underway. Tom crawls on all fours, growls and drinks from a dish on the floor. Amy tries to limbo, but falls backwards on her head. Then she and Beau jump in the pool. Amy does a dive off of Beau's shoulders into three feet of water and surprisingly bonks her head on the bottom of the pool. Please don't drink and dive! Charla heads to bed and Amy – again! – chirps up, saying she wished Melanie stayed instead of Charla. In her room, Charla wonders when all the sniping will end. Scott and Holly head back to their room and have a fight about whether or not Holly is a flirt. They break the cardinal relationship advice rule and go to bed angry. Morning comes and a letter is sitting on both breakfast tables. It seems that the person who opened the envelope will be rewarded with a sunset cruise with two opposite sex guests of their choosing. Scott and Amy were the nebby ones, for the record. Dave offers Scott advice on who to take. Beau, still sporting jungle party makeup in his eyebrows, calls Dave out for being a sneaky whisperer. Amy confers with Melanie and considers taking Beau and Keith just so she can leave Keith in the corner having a miserable time. In a shocking move, she takes the classy route and instead chooses Tom and Beau, while Scott picks Holly and wonders if he should pick Desiree or Melanie. Holly's pout STRONGLY advises picking Desiree. The self-appointed good group heads out for a day on the water. Amy, still not practicing safe diving, almost cannonballs on Tom's head. Showing tremendous ability to read people, Desiree theorizes that Dave is in love with Charla. In their bedroom, Charla reassures Dave of their friendship. Dave is still concerned about their lack of physicality and her avowed repulsion at being touched by him. Charla hugs Dave, hopefully stemming the tide for now. On the boat, Holly thinks Tara is more conniving and more of a threat than Charla. That same day, it's revealed that another Pandora's Box is on deck for that night. Well, this shouldn't cause much tension. Especially after the boat kids start coming up with questions attacking the Barbies, and Keith says he hopes he never has to see Amy's face again. Like, ever, as long as he lives. Pandora's Pot Stirring starts. First question. Scott, if it came down to Holly or Melanie, who would you pick and why? Scott takes a deep breath. This is a tough one. Especially with both of them in the room right now. So…Scott? He goes for Holly. Melanie DID NOT enjoy that answer. Holly smugly did. Tara, the week Beau was evicted you said you were happy. Recently you voted for Andon. Are you glad to have Beau back? Tara tepidly says yes. She just voted for Andon because Beau seemed a little bitter, which he's surprised to hear. Maybe he forgot all the yelling he did about being back, ready to change things and right wrongs. Holly, is it true that you got a little jealous that Scott was spending more time with Melanie when the old guests first arrived? She says no, but an editing flashback shows her yelling at Scott for spending too much time with Melanie. Amy, it has been said that Tara thinks you are jealous of her. What is your defense? Amy says, "I have overcome, accomplished and achieved so many things already in my life at 21 than you ever will in your whole entire life." She doesn't provide a rundown of those things, but presumably sticking with Zack after that first night when he said he couldn't believe he wasn't picked by a better girl is somewhere on that list. Before closing, Amy adds, "I have everything you have and more." If you're scoring at home, in the "and more" column, please add "Lump on the head from diving into a three foot deep pool." "The Box" ends and the resorters retreat to their rooms. Keith and Tara have a good laugh over Amy's diatribe. Tara wonders what exactly Amy has accomplished. "We're both on a reality TV show!" At the bar with Melanie, Amy reinforces the notion that she has no reason to be jealous of Tara. In private, Tara thinks maybe Amy doesn't like her because Zack said Tara was one of the "coolest chicks" and "really hot." A flashback shows us Zack effusing over Tara and Amy discreetly yelling "Okay, you're done!" at them across the bar on Tara's first night. In her room, Amy says now that people have come back and told them what's going on, she's going to change the way things are done. Apparently she couldn't pick up on the Barbie alliance without Zack filling her in during his return. Beau says for him and his friends to succeed, they have to take out the power. The same friends he derided as not his friends when he leave, assumedly. Keith and Tara lounge around, commiserating that the tide has turned. He says he doesn't want to win without her, but she might be gone tomorrow and he might be gone next week. Oh well, at least they tried. -paradiseonfox.commoreless
