I received word from my friend Linda that Paradise Hotel is returning to Fox for another season, albeit on their new reality show channel! I cannot even contain my excitement over the prospect of this. Paradise Hotel is my favorite reality show of all time, and it made the summer of 2003 exceptional when it would have been less than that otherwise.
Castings have already begun and the tentative premiere date is January 13, 2008! Let’s hope that the ever-lovely superhost Amanda Byram is back to guide the unwitting dummies through their journey to the Ultimate Prize.
In the immortal words of Paradise Hotel contestant Toni Ferrari, “YAHTZEE! GAME ON!!!!”
BONUS: If you’ve been wondering what Season 1 star Zack (pictured below) has been doing with himself, you can find out after the jump.
He is still living the Paradise Hotel lifestyle, now in Hawaii and posing for Natural Bodybuilder magazine. Good for you Zack!
