Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 25
AIRED:
Someone give the guy a medal: Scott has finally realized that his time in Paradise isn't really reality. Dave jokes that after it's all over he should move to Chicago in order to be near his buddy Toni. Maybe they can even do a celebrity boxing match together. Scott and Dave learn that the girls will be preparing their lunch. "This is guys' week!" Dave exclaims giddily. But all is not peachy in the Scott/Dave camp. Scott had heard from Matt and the other evicted guests that Dave has lied to him. Dave confesses that he did set up a Pandora's Box question for Matt. He had wanted Matt to name Scott as someone he could not trust. Dave admits that it was a stupid thing to do. His goal was to get Matt back in, not get him on his side over Scott's. The ever-ebullient Scott feels manipulated. Melanie and Amy discuss how Scott said in the Pandora's Box that he would pick Holly over Melanie. Since she had a pact with Scott when she was first at the hotel, Melanie assumed that they would resume this agreement upon her return. (Maybe if she had put out the first time around, she wouldn't be in this predicament?) Melanie wants to be respectful for whatever "thing" he has with Holly, but she isn't sure whether she is upset or not. Amy is confident that things can change. Beau interrupts the girl bonding session to tell them that he wants Tara out over Charla. Tara had done things behind his back. (Like make out with him?) Then Scott comes into the room, announcing that he'd rather that Charla is booted first. Scott confronts Melanie about what he said during the Pandora's Box. She acknowledges that her feelings were hurt when he chose Holly. Melanie then gets into bed to snuggle with him, causing Scott to hurriedly jump out of the bed. Meanwhile, a full gourmet kitchen is set up in the Grand Salon. Desiree thought that the whole cooking thing was a joke. "I don't do meat," she pronounces, much to the guys' disappointment. The girls prove to be hapless cooks, with Amy being the worst of them all. Charla holds up a knife. "She'd better not stab me in the back," Dave laughs. Keith misses both breakfast and lunch because he is sick. Tara brings him peanut butter and jelly in bed. "Something's going to happen tonight," he says wearily through his illness. "Something weird." Everyone is given a survey to fill out. They each must name one rival and two allies of the same sex. "This has got end game written all over it," Dave muses. Tara is sure that it means she will be kicked out. Scott tells Charla and Dave that his biggest rival is either Keith or Dave. Dave is stunned, because he considers Scott an ally. Later, Dave and Tara map out who they think everyone will list. Over-thinking the whole thing, Dave says he doesn't like to over-think stuff because he is sure that this won't be a normal vote off. Tara complains once again that it will be either her or Charla who goes home. In another bedroom, Amy moans that she will be the one to be voted out. She'd rather leave then prohibit one of her friends from winning. (Um, has she not figured out the weekly competition yet?) Beau yells at her and Amy weeps. "This whole game is about testing our relationships with each other," she cries out to him. Tara and Charla toast their friendship over a couple of Twix bars. They are proud of themselves for progressing as far as they did. Charla says that Tara made her happy because she finally found a friend. Dave knows that Charla is the biggest target, but he promises to send her home if that's what she wants. Charla wants to leave it in God's hands. Amen! Beau still tries to convince Amy to not give up. He doesn't want to lose her and, even more self-centeredly, he needs her help. "Amy, we still have a job to do," he says unconvincingly. Beau tries to persuade Amy further by saying it's not what "HE" would want her to do. (Is Zack God? Or He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named? Will Charla then leave it in Zack's hands?) The girls line up as Host Amanda begins the dreaded weekly elimination ceremony. Desiree chooses her roommate first, snatching Tom back from the evil death grip of Tara. No shocker that Amy goes for Beau. Melanie scampers around the men huffing and puffing until she finally picks Dave. The look on his face gives away that he thinks he might have a shot with her. Holly walks directly over to Scott. She's relieved that Melanie didn't go for him. Charla picks Dave. "If anyone's gonna send me home, I'd rather it be Dave," she says. Tara goes to the only remaining guy -- Keith. Keith must be sick because his hair is longer and curlier than usual. It's now up to Dave. Despite any issues that may have arisen between them, Charla has been his friend all summer. Dave will be loyal and select her, but hopes that some kind of twist will save Melanie. Host Amanda does have a shocking twist, but it ain't making it any easier for Melanie. She won't be the only one to check out. Host Amanda asks Melanie to name her rival. Desiree and Amy smile when she says Charla's name. Then Melanie is asked to list her two allies -- Desiree and Amy. Melanie is then told to select one ally to take home with her. Desiree immediately runs to join Melanie in a show of support to Amy's survival campaign. Amy thinks it's unfair, but Melanie agrees that it should be Desiree who will be kicked out. The two girls leave, believing that Amy deserves to win. Knowing that Melanie went after Charla because she gave her the boot in the first elimination, Charla finds it hard to believe that Melanie has held a grudge for this long. Tara tells her to be happy. All these people wanted her gone but she's still there. Beau, Amy and Tom lament the loss of Desiree. Beau thinks that all the good people leave. (Was Desiree that good?) Amy agrees, fondly remembering Zack. It's been a full few days since she's slept with him. Holly is upset that Scott hangs out with Charla and Tara more than anyone else, including Holly. She doesn't understand why he's not bonding with his allies. Scott refuses to alienate Charla and Tara. He brings up the Melanie situation. Scott has respect for Melanie because she gave herself up in order to not put a wedge between him and Holly. "You should have picked her if she's better than me," Holly whines. This makes the milquetoast Scott even angrier. -paradiseonfox.commoreless
