Paradise Hotel: With only two weeks to go, it's time to step up or go home. Andon tells us he thinks Zack harbors a lot of ill emotion toward Keith. Andon also says it's his turn to start conniving and scheming. He meets with Zack to explain his nefarious plans. Zack says he has Holly and Desiree's votes, and he'll turn them over to Andon. Backdoor dealings! The group wonder if Zack really technically threatened Keith, and Zack argues that "I wasn't even looking at him." Then he says he's going to approach Charla, Dave and Keith and tell them not to give him their phone numbers.
By the bar, Toni is calling Tara a liar and saying she disgusts her and that she wouldn't have Charla's back if it came down to it. "Do I like you? No. Do I think you deserve to be here? No." Toni then lambasts Tara for saying on tape she wouldn't be Toni's friend and wonders why she's sitting there talking to her. Then she continues talking until she gets up and leaves.
Zack and Amy cuddle in bed, and Zack wants to clear up a few things. One, he's never loved anybody like he's loved Amy. And Amy says she's never felt so stable in a relationship. Zack doesn't know where he'd go in life without her. They cuddle some more and Zack keeps his hat on.
At the bar with Keith, Charla wonders why people keep asking her to speak to them, then cut her off to yell at her. Tara joins them, and Charla says that the other group lies so much they start to believe their own lies. Keith vows that they're going to win this.
Charla and Kavita confer in the ladies room, and Kavita tells her that the other group is in for a big surprise. Charla says she wants a guy that's not conniving there, and Kavita recommends Andon. Charla meets with Andon and says she still likes him. Behind the scenes, Andon opens up that he hates all the new people and if he can get Charla's trust and stab her in the back, he'll feel great. Charla continues to listen to Andon's rap. Perhaps she's being charmed by his trucker hat or ever-growing tattoos. Again behind the scenes, Andon says he can't wait to rip Charla's group apart.
Beau, sporting a new headband from the Zack collection, tells Holly he's definitely thinking Keith, Charla and Tara should be the first to go if he comes back. Holly agrees. Andon then tries to sweet talk Tara. He also mentions that maybe this is all a little too much for Dave to handle. Lying in his bed, Dave wonders if this is all a little too much for him to handle.
With Scott, Holly complains that she sat in her room all day and not one person came in to see her. Scott says he was hanging out. Their storybook romance is probably in the last chapter. In Dave's room, Charla asks him what he would do if Andon was voted on. Dave says he would avoid him so he could feel safe. Charla would rather have Amanda than Kristin or Toni. Charla then tells Dave to stop spending so much energy worrying about what the others think of him. Put that energy into us, Dave!
At breakfast the next day, Amy says she's not happy around these people and won't pretend to be. "When I'm happy, I'm happy and when I'm mad, I'm mad," she succinctly says. Amy says she's only staying because Zack wants her to and she's on a mission to get rid of the people that made life hard for Zack. No word if his mother is on that list. Behind the scenes, Kavita says one day people like Amy might find out what true tragedy is and gain some perspective.
After breakfast, Melanie apologizes to Charla and Tara for what happened and later confides to us that she wants to do whatever it takes to stay this time, even if that means pretending to cozy up to Charla and Tara. Later in the pool room, Melanie asks Holly if Scott's a good kisser. Then she tells her not to worry if she stays and she hangs out with Scott.
In their room, Zack confesses to Amy that he wanted to go out looking good and now he's going out looking terrible. Zack tells the camera that the people know who the real winner is. The lesson here is, backstab and lie to people, and you'll turn out to be a great American citizen, he says. Zack would not be himself and a proud Scotsman if he didn't stick up for himself. Just watch Braveheart to see how proud his people are. "I can take it though, I'm Zack," he tells us. Amy just holds her head in her hands, unable to process the grief of Zack's imminent departure.
Keith, borrowing Andon's trucker hat, says he got rid of Zack again and hopes Amy is soon to follow. At the bar, Dave is surrounded by Beau, Alex and the rest, who tell him not to have faith in Charla. Zack says it was embarrassing when Charla says she doesn't like being touched by Dave. Dave says Zack's behavior has been embarrassing. Zack goes on a rant, saying he's "well-loved" and that's why he's back here. How could I be such a bad person if somebody loves me? Zack wonders. The fact that it's Amy's love doesn't enter the equation. Zack further posits that everybody feels threatened by him because he's so well-loved and that if he came back he would definitely win.
In another room, Holly tells Scott that Melanie thinks she's rooming with him if she comes back, and Holly doesn't want that to happen. Scott coyly asks why she cares. At dinner, Zack stands up and says he has to make a speech before dinner starts. He apologizes for the bitterness and says it all ends now. Zack came to Paradise to see what it was to like to be a rich person and be "pampered on." He's now leaving with a new love, some new friendships and his "honor and dignity." Tepid applause greets the end of Zack's monologue.
The existing residents are instructed to cast their ballot for who they want to return and deposit their votes in the Harem Room. The process goes down and everybody meets once more. Amanda says the votes are in and two people will be checking back into the hotel. Also, the ultimate prize they're competing for is still a secret. Matt, you did not receive any votes. Alex, you did not receive any votes. So it's either Andon or Beau. Ladies, please reveal who you voted for. Amy? Beau. Desiree? Beau. Tara? Andon. Charla? Andon. Holly, it's up to you. Who do you vote for? Beau.
Ladies, now it's your turn. Amanda, you didn't receive any votes. Kristin, you didn't receive any votes. Toni, you will not be returning. Kavita and Melanie, one of you will be going home. The other will be checking in. Scott? Melanie. Tom? Melanie. Dave? Kavita. Keith? Kavita. Since the gentlemen are split, ladies it's down to you. Make your choice…right now! Amy? Melanie. Desiree? Melanie. Tara? Kavita. Charla? Kavita. So again it's Holly to decide. And she chooses…Melanie. Toni ecstatically pumps her fist and yells "Yeah!" repeatedly. Does she have something up her sleeve with Melanie? And why did Holly bring back her love rival? So many questions! The visitors say their goodbyes. Toni hugs Scott and says, "I'm so proud of you. Do it!"
In a bedroom, Charla and Dave gloat that they're staying and their rivals are getting back on a plane.
