Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 26
AIRED:
Over breakfast of Dave's specially-ordered huevos rancheros, Tom pleads for his safety. "Maybe you can manipulate somebody?" Tom sarcastically asks Dave. Too late for you, monkey boy. It took Tom this long to figure out that it was strategically wrong of him to send Desiree to the single room. Everyone else in America second-guessed that one the moment he did it. Amy storms down to the girls' table sans makeup, moaning about the company. "This is too weird for me," she says. "This is not my paradise. I miss Zack." Charla and Tara are uncomfortable with Amy's barbs and they get up to leave. "Bye, Bobsey Twins," she yells. Tara and Charla amuse themselves alone at the pool by painting each other's bodies. Is this sexy? Amy wonders aloud if she could drown them both in the pool. She and Beau walk out because they can't stand the sight of the Barbie girls. Amy whines to Beau that she's ready to quit Paradise. "It's not worth it to be miserable," she laments. In his usual feeble manner, Beau tries to convince her that she's wrong. Later at lunch, Charla and Dave praise Tara's cute outfit. Amy looks as if she's going to puke. The guests are invited to a séance that evening. No one knows what to expect, but they'd all like to know who's gonna win this damn game. They liquor up in preparation. The Spanish-speaking psychic lady is asked what's going to happen to each person after they leave Paradise. Tara will be afflicted with love problems. Amy is told something about coming out of this with a better understanding of personal feelings. Although the answer is hazy, Amy is comforted. It's a good guess she equates it to Zack. Scott is pleased to learn that he will have a lot of surprises that bring about money. Holly will become a woman of politics. (Does becoming a politician's mistress count?) Keith is destined to have a lot of power and the ability to finish whatever projects he has started. Charla is told that she is at a higher level than other people. Amy and Beau grimace when they hear that Charla will be triumphant over her enemies. Tom wants to know about his dead grandfather. He starts to cry and is given the chance to say goodbye to him. The next day, Holly and Scott argue about their semblance of a relationship. She is mad that he only talks to her when it's about the game. Scott claims they don't see eye-to eye on a lot of things. (Making out doesn't count.) She thinks they are stuck in a rut. They are more than friends but still not a couple. Woe is them. As Charla primps before the mirror, Dave asks her to accompany him to lunch. He says that she could never look unattractive in his eyes. "Thanks Dave," Charla says blankly to his love-stained compliment. With his mood lightened, Tom throws a party for the hotel guests along with Smokey. Everyone does shots and plays with silly string. Charla gets bombarded. "I guess I learned people's true feelings about me," she grumbles. Charla thinks it's pathetic that the others feel the need to take out their anger with silly string. Charla babe, it's probably better than listening to their dim-witted attacks. Beau acknowledges to Dave that he is ashamed of the way he acted when he returned to Paradise. Dave felt guilty that he couldn't save him and that he had to be the one to kick him out. That night, Beau, Tom, Dave and Amy sit at the bar. Charla phones Dave to tell him she is lonely. Dave promises that he will return to the room soon. Everyone teases Dave for having an unrequited crush on her. They jokingly give him advice on how to make his first move. Embarrassed, Dave heads for the room and tells Charla that they are giving him a hard time about being whipped. Tom calls Dave and says that they are all coming over. When they barge into the room, Charla informs them that Dave is scared. Tom slips a condom under Dave's pillow. Unfortunately for Dave, he hasn't yet needed one for months. Charla slips out for Tara's room. Dave is upset and tries to lure her back. Charla just wants to go to sleep without any commotion. Dave doesn't understand why she won't stay in their room. Charla gives in, and goes back. Dave is already in bed, but he is sitting up and watching her. He asks if she's mad. He only feels that he would be more comfortable the night before a vote off with them both together. Dave comments that everyone thinks their friendship is one-sided. He starts to wonder if the others are right. The next morning, everyone is on edge when the guys get invitations to pack their bags. Dave apologizes to Charla for overreacting the previous night. She looks at him vacantly. "What are you talking about?" she says. Beau and Tom discuss how they would both like to stay. Even the bipartisan Scott admits that he doesn't want to go. Tara is convinced that Dave will be the next one eliminated. It's a sad day for Barbies. The regular line up forms for Host Amanda, but there's not as many people this time around with only 9 left standing. First comes the roommate selection. Tom clamps his hands on Charla's shoulders because she was the only person he hasn't tried to room with yet. How romantic! And strategic! Dave joins his side by also going to Charla. The rest are obvious: Beau to Amy, Keith to Tara and Scott to Holly. Charla must choose, and not surprisingly, picks Dave. She sends Tom off politely. A choked-up Tom hugs each of the guys, but Host Amanda stops him from walking out because he won't be leaving alone. The others squirm. "Tom, who do you think that other man should be?" Amanda inquires. "None of them," he answers. But the Host presses him to name someone, and he says Dave. Dave shakes Tom's hand and accepts his defeat. Then Host Amanda reveals YET ANOTHER twist in this wretched game -- she hasn't given Tom the power to vote anyone off. Host Amanda hands Dave an envelope. He reads out loud what it says. Dave won't be leaving, but the man of his choice will. Tom runs out of the hotel with fists raised ala Rocky. Now Dave will need to choose between Scott, Keith and Beau. One of them is going home. Before Dave even names anyone, Beau mumbles that he won't ever trust Dave again. (Will Dave ever care?) Dave sadly picks Beau. "You're just not a man of your word," Beau says from his honorable lofty pedestal. Beau claims that Dave told him the previous night that he wouldn't kick him out like he did a few weeks ago. Dave says that he meant that he wouldn't let others make the decision for him. Beau took it the wrong way. Beau dons his martyr robe and announces that he hopes only good people will win the game. Beau later admits that he didn't want to come off like he was pissed at Dave. He really believed that Dave would have picked Scott instead. Sucker! Tara tells Dave and Keith that it's a miracle that they are both still in Paradise. Dave wants Holly to understand that he only kept Scott there for her. Meanwhile, Holly is alone in her room, while Scott comforts Amy somewhere else. Again, no time for Holly. Dave then tells Holly that he feels bad for Amy. Scott comes to Dave. He thought Dave would have eliminated him. Yet Dave felt that Scott and Holly would protect Charla more than Beau. Scott still seems mad that Dave had deliberated for as long as he did. Amy reluctantly tells Holly that she now trusts Keith more than Dave. "I never thought I'd say that one," Amy sneers. Charla notes that all of Amy's friends have been eliminated one by one. "I'm not expecting to win," Charla sighs. She is sure that Amy will take this whole game.moreless

  • Ripped Off!!!

    Love this show, what reality TV should be all about; the interaction between different types of people and watch the sparks fly! In 'Paradise Hotel' we have the 'in crowd' and the ostrocised and boy do they clash! This series is currently being repeated in Australia and after reading the episode summaries on the TV.com website I found out that we are getting an editted down version!!! Ripped off!!! The summary for this episode documents a séance where it is revealed that 'Charla will be triumphant over her enemies.' Wow, what a revelation, but somehow not destined for the Australian screen! Well, we are heading for the finale, Dave votes out Beau again, a poor strategic decision that blows up in his face! Go 'The Barbies'!!!
