Myrna, is still an idiot.
Posted May 15, 2008 @ 2:07 PM
Which says a lot about Myrna, if you think about it. It appears that she feels the only way to prove one's honesty or forthrightness is to be a gigantic ass to everyone you meet. In light of that, it follows therefore that she believes everyone would be a gigantic ass to everyone they met, if only they were honest enough. From there it's a short step to realizing that Myrna's natural state is "gigantic ass," and that she feels anyone who is anything less is just faking.

I can't believe I had to sit there and listen to Myrna talk again! Most. Annoying. Voice. EVER. She sounds like a cross between a Valley Girl and Charlie Brown's teacher. wa wa wa, like, wa wa waaaaaa

As soon as Ryan and TD removed Mike and Krista you knew what was going to happen. Actually, the same could be said if they have removed Zach and Stephanie.
A pretty boring ending.

I was a little disappointed in the end as well. Nice twist to give him three checks. Charla would've kept the 200K and made a bitchface that it wasn't more. She wouldn't be mad though, pinky-swear!
Zach reminds me of the Rupert of Paradise Hotel. He lost, but we're going to keep putting him on the show until he wins.

Making Me Crazee> I agree! At the very least, the checks should have been split 4 ways so that The Ridge could get *some*thing (besides STDs!) for sticking it out that long!
Stella MD> It was down to Zach and Stephanie v. TD and Ryan. Seven of the guests who have gotten kicked off (why not all of them, I haven't a clue)...Myrna (wa wa), Lauren, Mike, Kristen, Aaron, Chris, and James...showed up to be judges. The four finalists each had to give a speech as to why he/she should stay. Ryan's speech was directed toward Mike and Kristen...something along the lines of, "I'm not asking you to vote for me; I'm asking you to forgive me." TD cried and said that she doesn't feel guilty about anything she's done b/c she was just being herself and they should all respect that. Stephanie licked all their hineys clean and I can't recall what Zach said.
Then all the kicked off guests voted for which couple they thought deserved to stay. Zach and Stephanie won, 4 to 3.
TD and Ryan had to pick between the two who got "the Ultimate Prize". In what I feel is a suspiciously strange choice (considering TD is Stephanie's "best friend" and Ryan was close to her at one point = he slept w. her), they picked Zach.
The "Ultimate Prize" turned out to be $200k, which, according to Amanda B., makes Zach "a rich man"...a fact that i beg to differ. Op ed: Not only is $200k not THAT much money, but can you imagine putting up w. all that Drama and crap only to find out you win *drum roll* $200k?!
ANYway, Zach received 3 checks, one made out to him and the other two blank. He had to go and decide if he was going to keep it all, split it 2 ways or 3.
He ended up giving $20k to TD, and splitting the rest ($90k each), with Stephanie.
And they all lived happily ever after.

Zack coming back as the only 1st season guest (and the very last new guest this season) always seemed weird to me, and his winning seems weirder still. Like he somehow argued successfully/sued that he shouldn't have been disqualified last season (perhaps he could document other unaired threats that didn't result in someone being kicked off). Or maybe he has incriminating photos of Kent Weed.
I'd take $200K for doing nothing but drinking excessively, hanging out by the pool, and bitching! Besides, it's a lot more money that any of these clowns realistically will earn anytime soon, if ever (of course, that's just cuz they don't want to earn it, right Ryan?)
Not only is $200k not THAT much money, but can you imagine putting up w. all that Drama and crap only to find out you win *drum roll* $200k?!

Realistically, $200,000 is not enough to make you wealthy but it is enough to pay off debt (if you have any) and probably put a down payment on a house. That is a decent payoff for what they did. I just wish that the people knew what they were playing for before the game starts. They don't have to let them know about the ability to split the check but they should know what they are playing for.
Maybe they think that if people know what the prize is they won't participate because it is not worth risking your image on national tv.
Posted May 20, 2008 @ 10:05 PM
That? Sucked. Did Zach have a billionaire in him too who footed the entire bill so he could redeem himself as the bad celebuwant (so much politer than fame whore) who comes back to do everything right and win? That is my theory; I cannot think of another reason for the way this played out.
I think the hot tub is officially closed.
Posted May 21, 2008 @ 3:05 PM
ProfCrash> Oh, don't get me wrong. If someone wanted to give me $200k, I wouldn't turn it down! $50k a year would be an AWESOME salary for me since I only make $32k (is that a faux pas to mention? No idea.). But in terms of game shows, $200k seems small somehow. I guess I'm used to people winning millions, you know?
I thought maybe the Ultimate Prize was going to be Paradise Hotel itself.
I personally would have written out one of the checks for a penny...for Mryna. ha
Posted May 22, 2008 @ 12:46 PM
it does sort of shed some light on her "i usually date guys that make over 50k and drive nice cars" comment.. she's probably fairly well-off on her own and wouldn't want to have to support a guy. plus she does skanky car modeling gigs so she probably knows thousands of guys with nice cars.

Inquiring minds want to know:
Are Mike and Tanya still together? (Maybe they're not, because she pimped herself out on "Millionaire Matchmaker.")
Are Zack and Stephanie still "friends with benefits" or did she take the money and run?
Did Raheim and James finally admit the obvious and get it on with each other?
Dd Myrna ever get the stick out of her butt?
Did Ryan ever work out his "ridge" issues?
And I know about Nathan (the apparently closeted guy) who committed suicide.
Sometimes when the Fox Reality Channel does a marathon of past reality shows, they have updates and new interviews on the cast members. I hope they do that for "Paradise Hotel 2."

Myrna is seriously bitchy. She holds a grudge and went after Tanya claiming Tanya needs to spend more time on her make up. Wow. Myrna can try and claim that she is not shallow but she is one shallow, mean, bitch.
TD was flat out catty and bitchy towards Lauren. Of course everyone thought that TD pushed for Stephanie. Duh. We all thought that. Ryan had shown that he could have sex and drink, that is about it. Ryan avoided making any type of strategic decision the entire game. So why was TD surprised to hear that people thought that she forced Ryan to choose Zack/Stephanie? Lauren's reply to TD's question was reasonable. Lauren even said that she was wrong but that is what she thought at the time. TD still called her names. I get being pissed that you lost but TD had the chance to tell the guests that the decision was a joint decision in her speech and choose not to. TD knew she had angered people and that she was not liked. So why was she surprised to lose? And why pick on Lauren?
Ryan seems to be proud of his hooking up with Stephanie. Hell, he seemed to think that convincing her to hook up in public places was a great idea. He seems to think that it is cool that he was using his appearance on the show to sleep with women. He came off as a vapid idiot who needs to grow up.
Stephanie at least had the common sense to know how bad she looked on TV and clearly regretted hooking up with Ryan. Especially the very public way they had sex. It sure looked like she felt regret through my TV screen.
Raheim clearly realized he looked like an ass and kind of apologized for his behavior.
Johnny came out in nothing but board shorts or boxers (it was hard to tell) and managed to rub his crotch against Chelsea's back. Or at least rubbed it close enough that she knew what he was doing.

I think Stephanie has serious confidence issues. Sleeping around the way she did was kind of pathetic and sad. She seemed like a nice person and she is quite pretty but you can just kind of see that her self-esteem is low. Maybe she got teased growing up about those jumbo boobs of hers.
I'm not surprised that Mike and Tanya aren't dating. They never made sense to me. I think I liked Mike best out of everyone on the show. Tanya seemed like the best pick for him of the girls who were there but in the real world, not so much.
Overall, I hope they do a season 3. It's fun, mindless entertainment!

Really? Surely to god those are not real.
I was a little disappointed in the finale going all Survivor style and was hoping that Stephanie would win.
I am hoping they show the reunion up here in Canada!

Nope, they're not. I can't remember where I read that, but they are fake, fake, fake.

Does anyone know if the reunion show is up anywhere?

Dave is slimy and sleazy. I am annoyed with how in the revealed interviews he states he never lied, but rather chose his words very carefully. Then in the show he admitted to lying. Make up your mind fool. Also, by choosing your words carefully and implying one thing but not meaning it, I would classify that as a lie also Dave.
Charla may have been self-centered and selfish, but I'd take her over Dave any day.
I'm not sure why, but I have always liked Amanda. She seems like she has a good head on her shoulders.
Tara bought a monkey?! Yeah, you really used that money for your family, huh? Seriously, who in the world has a pet monkey, besides Ross on Friends?
Posted Jul 7, 2008 @ 1:20 PM
As for season two, all I can say is what a huge disappointment that was. Hell, if they do a season three I would rather see the season one cast back rather than taking their chances with a lame ass cast like season two. When a long time Zach hater is actually rooting for Zach of all people you just know it's a shitty cast.
