Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 27
AIRED:
Charla has no idea how the Barbies made it this far into the game. She doubts that their lucky streak can continue, believing that Amy will win. Yet Amy feels lonely. "It's been nothing but a struggle since Zack left," she bemoans. However, she is not averse to scheming in her misery, calling Dave out as a liar. He had told Beau that he wanted Scott to get the boot before Beau. Scott is annoyed when he hears this, and takes Amy's side. (Has Scott realized that he's still there and Beau isn't? Dude! Dave's on your side!) Dave feels like Amy's attack means she hates him again. So insightful. Keith sticks to his rational principle that the goal is to kick everyone out so that he can ultimately win. Charla wants to throw a surprise party for Tara's birthday. Dave composes a song, and an appalled Charla cuts him short when he rehearses it for her. Everyone but the sick Scott hides in the Paradise Disco to surprise Tara. Dave enlists Keith to accompany him on the song. Well, at least there are no other men in the room to make fun of them. Charla gives Tara Barbie doll gifts. Amy reluctantly toasts the birthday girl, and then is shocked when Keith gyrates around Tara. Perhaps this is a precursor for a new relationship, because Keith and Tara make out in their room later that night. The next day, a belly dancer comes in with a letter. Dave is quick to snatch it from the woman's bikini top. That evening there will be a costume ball followed by everyone's favorite truth game -- Pandora's Box. Each guest is gifted an Arabian Nights outfit. Amy calls Keith a wuss when he is afraid of the live performing snakes. But Charla likes the feel of the snake on her neck. (Unlike Dave's clammy hands.) The girls perform their own belly dance for the guys' applause. The beaded group sashays into the Harem Room for the Pandora's Box game and the questions are fired. Does Amy want Keith out now that they are getting along so well? She answers that she'd still like to see him gone. It's a safe bet that's what the beloved Zack would want too. Who would Tara send home first -- Amy or Holly? Because of all the crap she's given her in the past, Amy is the one. Holly is shocked when Charla admits that she once seduced Scott, even though he rebuffed her advances. Dave is asked why he sent Beau home. He says that he protected Keith and Scott because they were most likely to cover his and Charla's backs. However, he could have just as easily sent one of them home instead. Keith is surprised that Dave would have picked him over Scott, considering they are so close. Dave concurs that he really has no idea what he would do in that situation. A question is posed to Keith about the ease in which he eliminated Zack. Could he do the same to Dave? Keith answers that, if it was down to the end game, he would have no problems dumping Dave on his ass. Later, Dave tells Charla that he feels bad about Keith and Tara getting beat up during the Pandora's Box. Yet Keith and Tara both feel that Dave was a jerk in saying that he would not choose Keith. Dave comes to Keith to assure him that he would indeed save him over Scott. "You're saving face," Keith snarls. "But that's OK." The girls get their "pack up" letters from the hotel before they sit down to breakfast at the now-too-big table. Charla makes it known that she thinks Amy will be staying. Charla and Tara practice the walk of shame up the stairs of the Grand Salon. Then Amy admits to Scott that she will be sad if she is eliminated. She doesn't feel that Charla, Tara or Keith deserve to win. Yet, oddly, she wouldn't mind it if Dave won. There's tension between Scott and Holly as she packs her belongings. Trouble in Paradise? Tara lets Charla know that Dave is acting strange towards Keith. It's as if he feels guilty. It's known that Dave submitted the Pandora's question for Tara that put her on the spot. Tara is sure that Dave was setting her up to pull all of Amy's hatred away from Charla. Charla tells Dave that Keith and Tara are scared that he will turn on them. Dave is convinced that Keith has no problem sending either of them home. Charla disagrees. The girls line up for Host Amanda in what is the final roommate selection. Amy states that she will choose wisely. Unwisely, she goes to Keith. "Why, why, why?" asks Host Amanda. Amy says she wouldn't put Scott in the position to turn against Holly. She is confident that, if she were to turn to Scott, he will pick her over Holly. (Talk about a false sense of security! Amy doesn't seem to know where Scott's allegiance lies. One hint: it's below the belt.) Amy refused to go to Dave because everyone goes to Dave when they have no choice. So Charla goes to Dave instead. She's always known that she wanted to be with him till the end. Just not in "that way." No big surprise when Tara picks Keith. "He is very sweet, very caring and thoughtful," she explains. (Does that mean "I heart him?") Amy turns green, and it's not from envy. In another non-shocker, Holly selects Scott even though they have hit hard times. Scott answers by sweating profusely. Keith is forced to make a not-so-hard choice. Although he thinks Amy is a "good girl," he stays with his Barbie-protectorate Tara. Since all of Amy's happy memories have occurred SO LONG ago, she's now fine with leaving. Will there be a twist? Not this time. Amy is sent to the walk of shame. She hugs everyone, including Keith. "I love Zack, and it's the greatest feeling in the world to come out of here and say that. And mean it," she exudes. -paradiseonfox.commoreless

    Wow, the lines are being drwn for the finale but the ranks seem to be faltering. From what I see the rift between Dave and Keith was just a misunderstanding, Dave was being tactical, but Keith took it personally. Great to see Amy go, had enough of her poison, pitty is I think if she was not under Zac's spell she would be a nicer person.



    Highlights - Thought Dave’s birthday song for Tara wasn’t that bad (though did remind me of that Michael Jackson guy on ‘The Simpsons’ - 'Lisa it's your birthday, Happy Birthday Lisa ...') but couldn’t match Keith’s dance! Keith was outdone by the Belly dancer and Amy loved watching Keith freak out at the snake!moreless
