Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 7
AIRED:
Pre-newbie arrival, most everyone thinks Matthew JC is probably cool and nice. Beau makes fun of the moniker that Matt's a rocker, because when he sang to Amanda via satellite, it was only a ballad. Thanks, Beau, for noting the technicality. Zack is already jealous. He's angry that the women picked Matt. The group is unanimous in their worry for Dave after the two contestants harped on him. Dave just wants them to drop the discussion altogether. Charla goes to her room to make Dave feel better, but he doesn't want to talk. He's convinced that he shouldn't have even come on the show. He is sensitive about his physical self and his ability to relate to women. Charla feels so bad that she sits on Dave's bed. Their bare skin may possibly touch. It's a full Welcome Matt when he lands in Paradise to the traditional toast by the other guests. Does he wear his welcome out as soon as he arrives? He states that he can already tell there's emotion beneath Toni's tough-guy exterior. Matt then points out that his friends back home assumed he would clash with Zack. They watched with the rest of America while the guys did pushups in the bathroom on their first day. Zack had gone back for seconds. From the far-off look on Zack's face, it's obvious that he doesn't like Matt already. However, that expression could mean something else. Amanda and Charla jiggle over to Matt to take him on a tour of the hotel. Toni is sure that Amanda is trying to make Beau jealous, but Charla brushes that off. She thinks all of the guys get jealous when a new guy comes in. (Note that Charla is grouping Toni with the men.) Matt grills the boys about the girls. They describe Amy as fun, Amanda as cool, and Charla as the player. Only a few minutes in Paradise, and Matt can pinpoint the obvious: Dave is infatuated with Charla. Yet Dave is caught up with worry over Matt's roommate selection. Host Amanda rallies the group together to hear Matt's decision. The new guy starts out by praising all the girls individually (it seems he already has plans to let Toni work him out). Yet he picks Charla, who says "Wow" when she hears the news. Dave is stunned silent. It's the black room for him and his man boobs. Charla tells the other guys that she is flattered, but she doesn't know yet if she'll get along with her new roommate. Matt admits to Toni that Charla is like a little sister to him. He merely wanted a roommate who would give him the freedom to meet everyone else. Scott quickly lets Charla know that Matt's not into her. Devious! Poor ol' Dave is saddened that he's no longer the "new guy," and that, even worse, everyone else loves Matt. Beau confides in Toni that he would never backstab someone there. He is giving Alex the benefit of the doubt because his friend already told him he wouldn't go for Amanda. Gullible? While Beau's away, Alex joins Amanda in her room. Although he flirts with every girl there, Beau doesn't like it when it's with Amanda. As much sexual tension there is between them, they can't do a thing because of Beau. "What would happen if he left?" Amanda wonders. Alex says he is ready to do whatever it takes to stay on the show, regardless of the sexual dreams Amanda is having about him and the sexual frustration he is feeling. Stroking his hair, Amanda admits that she wants to hook up with him. Alex wishes they could. Amanda feels so close to Alex that she is sure she will keep in contact with him after the show. She convinces Alex to sleep in her and Beau's bed. "We're in so much trouble if Beau walks in right now," Alex laughs as they cuddle. Amanda asks him to stay, but he kisses her on the head as he leaves. Beau arrives just in time to see Alex scuttle out of his room. The next morning, Beau doesn't speak to Amanda. Dave snores all alone in the single room. In their first night together, Matt swears to Charla that he'll be a gentleman. He's gentlemanly enough to give her a sensual massage. Charla is smitten. "Eight hours, and you already broke me down," she confesses. "It's crazy. I never thought I'd feel like this here." The next day, Toni tells Amanda that Beau is questioning his trust for her. Dave says that he is not a big fan of Matt because he didn't apologize about taking his room. Yet he plays tennis with him. Dave is now annoyed that Matt not only got a massage from Charla, but also kicked his butt in tennis. At the pool, Matt asks Charla to take a bath with him. She doesn't turn him down. Charla goes to the room for a nap and Matt promises he'll join her after his swim. As soon as she leaves, he jumps in the pool and flirts with Amanda. Beau watches cautiously. After their swimming, Matt finishes the song he serenaded to Amanda on his guitar. She is impressed, but Beau looks pained. Beau quickly pens a song about a cow. Only he and Toni think it's funny. Amanda takes Matt to her room. He is concerned that Beau will be mad, but he is man enough to ask her to take a bubble bath. Fortunately, Amanda is not tempted by the offer. Amanda gets another non-Beau cuddle session, but this time with Matt. They stop just as Beau enters the room. Beau goes in to shower, and Matt gives Amanda a sweet kiss. Zack yells at Amy again. It seems no one at the hotel has gotten to know him. Don't we know enough? He had hoped that at least Amy would want to learn more about him since she claims to like him so much. Zack doesn't want to be known only as the workout guy. "I have a colorful personality," he says. He goes into the men's bathroom by the pool and bemoans this same thing to Kristin and Amanda. Zack feels like he can relate to Kristin because he too would not cry if one of their fellow guests left. He admits that he only cried when he was a kid. Suddenly, Zack breaks into tears. That night, everyone is invited to play the infamous Pandora's Box game. Dave is asked who he would send home if given the chance. Taking the very high road, Dave says that he would give the boot to Scott and Charla because he knows them too well. He'd like the chance to bond with the others. Is this Dave sucking up or what? Someone wants to know which girl Matt thinks is most trustworthy. He picks Toni because she is his "den mother" (and we're not talking Boy Scouts here). Toni is then grilled on what is going on between her and Amanda. She felt that Amanda was not on the up-and-up with the whole Beau and Alex flirting thing. Although there is still some distrust there, she is OK with Amanda now. Kristin is next, and she owns up that, if she was a guy, she would trust Toni the most and Amy the least. (This might be the brewing of an alliance!) It's Beau's turn, and he confesses that he may be less talkative lately because he is busy analyzing who is being truthful to him. "Actions speak louder than words," he decrees. Amy is asked how she REALLY feels about Zack. She calls Zack "amazing," but it's not clear in what context she is referring to. She says she already has more feelings than she expected to have for him, which is why she didn't ask him more about himself. Amy assumed that they would get to know each other better after they left Paradise Hotel. Alex is then asked about why he is so two-faced when it comes to Amanda. He acknowledges that he has said bad things about her in the past, but that they have grown closer. They now have a real love-hate relationship, but will that stop them from hooking up? Amanda is questioned about the possibility of Beau getting evicted. She gives her pat answer (let's all say it together): "We are just friends." But Amanda also reveals that she is not attracted to Beau anymore. The love triangle continues. Beau thinks Amanda is playing dirty. She lied to him about not flirting with Alex even though Alex told him they do. "The past is haunting them," Beau pronounces wisely. Beau confronts Alex, who says that he refuses to stop flirting. He does apologize for whatever he may have done in the past to hurt Beau. All this doesn't seem to stop Amanda from flirting of her own -- with Matt in the pool. Then Beau deals with both Alex and Amanda together. He can't trust their word. Alex says that whatever is going on with them is only between them and has nothing to do with Beau. Amanda cries because Beau is making her upset. She tells him that he can not control her. Beau is mad that Alex cuts down Amanda and then is all cuddly with her. Alex just wants him to stay out of it. Beau questions whether Alex is no longer a friend. Can this triangle get any more jumbled? Let's make it an octagon. Host Amanda arrives unexpectedly with a surprise guest for Amanda. It's her ex-boyfriend Jason. She dated him for over a year but broke up when he moved. "Why are you here?" Amanda says tearfully. Everyone is shocked, but what's more shocking is Charla, who cries as well. "I love you," Amanda says to Jason as she kisses him in front of Beau, Alex and the other men vying for her affection. Zack asks Beau if he's officially divorced now. He then sings a song about Amanda. We can add comedian and songwriter to the list of Zack's titles (we've already got colorful, lawyer, debator, not-just-a-workout guy…) Beau and Alex agree that they will tell Jason EVERYTHING if he gets in their faces about his woman. Amanda tells Jason that Beau is the only guy she kissed. There was no one else. She seems to have conveniently forgotten about making out with Zack, coming onto Alex and working over Matt. Jason says that he's not mad at her. She wants to know if Jason will ask her to leave Paradise and go home with him. We'll all find out that answer next Monday! -paradiseonfox.commoreless
