Paradise Hotel concludes tonight on FOX, and a winner has been announced. Bobby Ray came out on top after intentionally sabotage his and Tatum’s chances as a couple. He walks away with the grand prize of $250,000. The episode came to an end with the cast celebrating while Tatum stormed off.
After Jair and Jamie were eliminated in a shocking cliffhanger, it came down to the final two couples: Carlos and Kaitlin, and Tatum and Bobby Ray. The latter couple were touted as an obvious target, but they made it to the final two, where Bobby Ray decided to end things.
Bobby Ray Won the Grand Prize of $250,000 After Eliminating Tatum
Tatum and Bobby Ray ran into serious trust issues heading into the finale. In the teaser for tonight’s episode, Tatum told Bobby Ray that she has been hooking up with Carlos behind his back. “It was so brief, so fast because I didn’t want Kaitlin to come back anytime soon and we kissed again and that was that,” she explained. “That night we kissed, he told Kaitlin.”
Bobby Ray was visibly shaken by the news, and he told Tatum that it would be her fault if he gets eliminated tonight. This is not the first time that one of Tatum’s schemes came back to haunt her. During last week’s episode, she tried to conspire with Kendall G to knock Brittany out of contention. When Brittany heard about her plan, she confronted Tatum and called her out in front of the other contestants. Tatum said she considered trying to get rid of her but that she would “never” actually go through with it.
Kristin Cavallari Promises Lots of ‘Twists & Turns’ During Tonight’s Season Finale
Kristin Cavallari, the show’s host, talked to Hollywood Life about what makes it such a fun experience for fans. “I have never done a show like this, so I was honored that FOX even approached me about it. I really do love hosting,” she said. “I have done a lot of stuff for E! in hosting the last few years and this was a really good opportunity for me.” Cavallari also said that she has a great time interacting with the contestants.
“[I] absolutely have a good time watching everybody else being here. This is the best of both worlds [for me] without being a part of it and to compete,” she revealed. “I am having the time of my life! This show has been so much fun to have a front row seat to, so I am really enjoying it… I just think competing on a dating show would be very stressful. I don’t think I could ever do it.”
