Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 8
AIRED:
"This is real," Beau announces. Not according to Amanda. She confides to Amy about Jason, her visiting ex-boyfriend. Jason wants her to go home with him because he is anxious to start up their relationship again. For so long, Amanda waited to hear him make this declaration of commitment, but now she is reluctant to leave the hotel. Beau can tell that Jason is head over heels in love with Amanda. But he is even more sure that she will cheat on her man soon enough, especially considering that she had tried to start something with Beau when she first arrived in Paradise. No one will want her now that she has a serious boyfriend. Beau tells Amanda that she has distanced herself from everyone else since Jason's been there. She admits that she still has feelings for Jason. She liked Beau, but she was never sure she wanted a relationship with him. This is all news to Beau. He drinks with Jason at the bar, and lets him know that Amanda cornered him when they first arrived. She told Beau that, after eight hours of knowing each other, she would have been jealous if he had talked to another girl at the hotel. The two guys also agree that her nagging is annoying. Matt passive aggressively wants Charla to give him a massage, but she isn't into touching. She also doesn't trust him with his shifty eyes and hands. Charla tells him that she is uncomfortable with him, and he responds with, "You're just so cute." That night, everyone files into the Paradise Disco. Charla considers it the most fun she's had at the resort. Is that because she was on the dance floor grinding with Scott? Dave has the same idea about the night, but his reason is because Beau told him that he was finally "officially part of them." Yet Dave is still convinced that he will be the next to be sent home. Toni, meanwhile, mauls Alex, telling him that she wants to do "anything." They go back to the bedroom and make out. Alex quickly gets up from the bed and pukes in the bathroom. This is not a positive chit for Toni's reputation. She jokes that Alex can now claim, "I made out with Toni and then I threw up." The guys all hope that Matt goes before Dave. Matt notices the tension everyone is feeling and the cliques that are forming. Amanda does not see this because she's still huddled away with Jason. Beau is pleased about this set-up. Jason's presence has taken the pressure off of him. All the girls will realize that Beau is now available. Alex prepares to pick Kristin in the next bedroom selection. Although Beau is aware of this, he pulls Kristin aside to let her know that he wants to room with her. How can they prevent Alex from picking her? Beau and Toni get into an argument started by a pet scorpion. For someone worried about his fate, Beau is hindering his own trustworthiness. Scott strategically advises Dave to pick Amanda. Scott and Zack both agree that there will be some twists in the night's elimination. Although he's looking out for Dave, Scott needs to look out for himself. He says that he doesn't trust "that f***ing girl Amanda since day one." Dave feels the same way, but he thinks that Charla has already agreed to pick Scott. He doesn't know what to do. Jason can't understand why Amanda wants to stay there so badly. He asks her one last time to come with him, but she will remain in Paradise. They say their goodbyes. "You know that I love you with all my heart," she says tearfully. Although she wants to go with him, she has made a decision to see Paradise Hotel through. That night, Host Amanda leads the group through their bedroom selections. The boys must choose the girls they want to room with. Dave goes first. He doesn't know what to do about Charla because he is positive that Scott will pick her. Dave walks over to Amanda, and Charla glances over to him warily. Dave mentions that he heard that if he chose Charla, he may be sent home. Matt heads for Toni and she smiles. Beau is next and he looks scared. Yet he too picks Toni. "Man, why me?" she cries. Beau has an answer. "She's awesome." Scott decides on Charla, and she is happy with that move. When Zack definitively picks Amy, everybody says "Awww!" Alex is last, and he goes for the one girl standing alone -- Kristin. Alex says that, although he macked with Toni, he does not feel he has to room with her. (Maybe he knows he can have her anyway?) Beau and Matt wait by Toni's side. She knows the drill all too well. She's also wearing the same dress that Amy wore for one of the last bedroom selections. Despite the fashion faux pas, she wants to keep Beau under her mother hen wing. "That's just the way it works," she says to the forlorn Matt. "It's been a blast," Matt sighs as he leaves the hotel forever. Host Amanda goes back to Los Angeles and introduces the hotel guests via satellite to the two newest contestants. Tara is a real Sporty Spice who plays golf and rides motorcycles. She's into the funny guys, and is looking forward to hooking up with Alex. Lauren hoofs it up on the bar while working at Coyote Ugly in Texas. She's hot for not only Beau, but Zack and Alex as well. Beau asks Lauren to show off her exhibitionist side, and she pulls down the waist of her jeans to reveal a butterfly tattoo on her hip. Zack wants to know about the machine between Tara's legs. What else does she like to ride? "It's a secret," she says coyly. Amanda asks Lauren how she would last at the hotel when no other female newbie has done so. "I'm not much of a drama queen like some people," spunky Lauren answers. Tara challenges Scott to mud wrestle. "I love mud!" she screams. Dave has Lauren put on a clogging act. Beau wants to see Lauren's belly button, and her top accidentally pops open. Then the witty Beau stands up and does his best Michael Flatley impersonation. Dave wants to know how willing Tara is to hook up. Desperate much? She pleads that she would be "completely honored" to join the boys in paradise. Lauren thinks the guests all seem genuine and that it would be a blessing to come out there and know them. Has either of these girls been watching the show? The men decide on Tara as the next guest. But Host Amanda has a surprise twist. Tara will spend the first week there without a roommate. That means, at the end of the week, she will pick a roommate unchallenged. One of the original women will definitely go home. The hotel guests are all shocked, via satellite. It seems their scheming has all gone to waste. -paradiseonfox.commoreless

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Tara: Alex kind of looks and acts like Ace Ventura.
        Ace Ventura was a character that Jim Carrey played in two movies. The first one came out in 1994, and the second in 1996. He was a pet detective who's a little bit on the goofy side, but always gets the job done. A year later, the animated TV show premiered that was based on the movies, yet it didn't have Jim Carrey voice for Ace. The show lasted for four years.
