Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 301
AIRED:
The temptation has returned and like last year we take the proper time to learn about our couples. First is Melissa, 29, and Michael 25. Melissa is a former Ms. New York and wants to settle down while Michael isn't quite ready yet. They both live with their parents in Long Island, NY. Next is Eric, 25, and Kristin, 21, who are from Farmville, Virginia and have been together for three years. They're the all-American couple and are coming on to test the emotional boundaries of their relationship. Next is Anthony, 23, and Stephanie, 21, who are from Chicago and have been together for three years. They've been living together for around 6-7 months. Anthony thinks Stephanie likes to fight so they can have "make-up" sex. Next is Jason, 23, and Kara, 24, from Las Vegas. They've been together for a year and Jason still lives with his parents and has never really been anywhere or done anything.

The couples arrive on Roatan in the Bay Islands off the coast of Honduras. They wait on the beach patiently as the singles arrive to greet them. The men and women are paraded around for their first encounters. The host Mark Walberg then tells the Couple Men to leave so the Single Women can tell the Couple Women which of their boyfriends they are most interested in. Mark then switches it and the Single Men tell the Couple Men who they are most interested in. Kara receives the most accolades from the girls while Melissa gets none. For the men Jason only gets one guy who wants Kara while Anthony gets the most.

Some initial tension was built between Jeff (single guy) and Jason. Jeff pretended to tell Jason he wanted to date Kara, but fakes him out and moves to Eric instead. Mark then tells the couples to take 5 minutes of alone time together because they are being split up immediately and taken away to separate parts of the island. They are all in shock because of how quickly they are being split apart. After being separated, the couples get to spend some time with their respective singles. A little drinking, and everyone opens up. Especially Michael who says he's a kid in a candy store.

The next day, Mark brings the couples back together and the singles parade out in front of all to introduce themselves. Some stand outs: John from Minnesota tripping and falling on the way up and Eve from Minnesota who likes to jump off buildings and set herself on fire. We might get an explanation. Maybe not. The couples are then told to select a single of the opposite sex who they think is the most threatening to their respective boy/girlfriend. Jason immediately selects Jeff, probably because of the earlier altercation. He pretends like he's going to hit him but refrains. Anthony selects Derrick, Eric selects Ryan M. and Michael selects Ian. Stephanie picks Tiffany, Kara picks Amy, Kristin picks Maria and Melissa picks Tanaya.

Mark Walberg then surprises everyone and tells the eight selected singles that they are in fact being sent home. Back at the respective sides - the guys are staying at Luna Beach Resort while the girls are staying at Palmetto Bay Plantation. At Luna, Michael immediately warms up to the girls as does Anthony. Eric holds back a little but Jason completely shuts himself off. Mark arrives at Luna at night and sits down with the guys. Mark tells them that there's a twist. He tells the guys that 4 singles they picked, weren't kicked off. In fact, they selected those 4 to be the first dates for their girlfriends.moreless
