Paradise Hotel 2
Monday, February 4th
at 9:00 p.m. ET, MyNetworkTV took us one step closer to cultural collapse. The
premiere of Paradise Hotel 2 promoted hedonism as the ultimate lifestyle.
Heavy sexual content including partial nudity, lap dancing, and graphic
dialogue filled every moment of the hour-long episode, making it the clear
choice for the Worst of the Week. Additionally, the show flaunts
a shallow view of mankind, judging an individual’s worth by their “hotness,”
with no consideration given to character. Absorbing an hour of Paradise
Hotel 2 truly rots the soul.
In this premiere episode the
first 11 contestants arrived in “Paradise” to start the game, which rewards the
contestants who are the most physically desirable and mentally deceptive. Once
everyone arrived, the cast had a short period of time to find a partner of the
opposite sex to be their “roommate.” The (not so) funny thing about these
“roommates” was that they didn’t sleep in bunks or separate beds, but rather the
same queen-size bed. These sex-charged twenty-somethings are paired with
strangers and put in the same bed together. Is there no modesty anymore? Has
the concept of the “marriage bed” been completely eliminated?
On the first night, the odd
girl out had to sleep alone. She was shown tossing and turning in her underwear
and heard saying, “I just want sex, I just want to have sex!” Other scenes
showed the cast stripping down to their underwear and drinking heavily
together. Strong suggestive dancing (that clearly imitated rear-entry sex) was
seen, as well as girl-on-girl intimate contact. The episode went far beyond the
bounds of decency when the contestants began performing lap dances in their
underwear for one another.
One particularly disturbing
scene featured a female contestant confiding in her female co-contestants that
she is still a virgin. The girl next to her grimaces and can be heard saying “eww,”
as if being a virgin is now the equivalent of having a sexually transmitted
Paradise Hotel 2
is not merely inappropriate for prime-time television; it is flat-out
inappropriate, period. To condone this type of programming is to encourage
heartless, hedonistic and even dangerous behavior among teens – a horrible use
of the publicly-owned airwaves, and yet another sign that MyNetwork TV (like Fox
and the cable FX network, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp) actively promotes
the lowest common denominator. As a result, we unreservedly award Paradise
Hotel 2 the Worst of the Week.
