'Paradise Hotel' recap: Hans Wiener and Kyle Rydberg ousted after Hans attacks Rosanna and Carlos is accused of playing Mariaelena
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/17/2019
Paradise Hotel eliminated Hans Wiener and Kyle Rydberg aka "Big Red" on "Check-Out Day" when they were left single and alone after the rest of the cast paired up at the conclusion of the new Fox revival's Thursday night episode.
Hans, a model from Salt Lake City, UT, and Kyle, a 25-year-old from Denver, CO, were both ousted from the reality competition series to find love -- and also win $250,000 -- after they failed to find a match and enter a potentially-serious relationship at the hotel.
Hans had to leave the hotel because his romance with Brittany Campbell, a hairstylist from Thousand Oaks, CA, crumbled following a heated altercation that made Brittany question whether Hans was the right guy for her.
Hans, however, didn't leave until after throwing Rosanna Cecconi, a student from Chicago, IL, under the bus, alleging she was a controlling and manipulative "puppetmaster" at the hotel.
Hans admitted it was a "sad" moment to realize he and Brittany weren't going to be together.
"I think there is still something there and she sees it too," Hans said on his way out.
As for "Big Red," he was dumped by Mariaelena Perez, a bartender from Yonkers, NY, who chose to be with Carlos Garcia, a trainer from Havana, Cuba, instead.
"It's tough coming in from the outside," Kyle said following his ouster, referencing how he had only entered the hotel after everyone was already paired up.
"I feel like I had an opportunity but screwed it up a little bit with Mariaelena for sure."
The episode began with seven guys and five girls remaining, with a looming double elimination in the near future.
Kyle chose to room with Brittany so he could get to know her better.

Brittany figured Kyle had picked her because she wasn't getting along with Hans, but she didn't like feeling like "a game piece" and "a pawn" at the hotel.
Hans was able to stay at the hotel at this point, but he was no longer going to be Brittany's roommate.
Like Brittany, Mariaelena also felt like she was a "temporary" moving piece in this game to find a partner, and neither of the girls appreciated it.
Brittany also insisted to Mariaelena that Carlos was using her to get to the next woman to enter the hotel.
Meanwhile, Jair, a 22-year-old from Philadelphia, PA, became the person Mariaelena chose to confide in.
Carlos vented to the cameras that Mariaelena had become "overly attached" after taking their relationship to the next level.
Carlos was accused of playing Mariaelena at the hotel, but he assured his love interest he had "no diabolical plan."
The pair fought at the hotel, but neither single was willing to let go of their relationship just yet.
Carlos wanted to fix things because he seemingly wanted to stay in the game, while Mariaelena admitted to having genuine feelings for the guy.
Mariaelena thought they could make it to the end together and win the money.
As for David Barta, a medical student from Burbank, CA, he explained Brittany had put herself in a bad position because she had made some mistakes at the hotel, like breaking her pact with original roommate Bobby Ray, an entrepreneur from St. Louis, MO.
As some couples were getting closer, Hans was falling apart. He really cared about Brittany and wanted to win her back since they both still felt a connection, but Rosanna called him out for being fake and not having the best of intentions.
Afterward, Carlos suggested to Jair he should pick Mariaelena at the next Check-Out Ceremony because what Carlos had going on with her wasn't "healthy."
Jair didn't know what to do because he could choose to either be selfish or help a friend out.
Carlos admitted to Jair that he would "rather go home than be in a war" with Mariaelena, who was apparently "too emotional" for his liking.
Hans then let know Mariaelena know Carlos didn't like her behavior and was just waiting for more girls to come in.
Mariaelena worried she was getting played as Carlos would tell her one thing but vent to the guys unflattering things about her.
It then became time for the second Check-Out Ceremony of the season.
Each man was asked to stand behind the woman he wanted to continue dating. If a woman had more than one guy behind her at the end of the ceremony, she would have a tough decision to make between them.
Jair, who was previously voted into the hotel by America, was granted safety. The girl he selected would therefore be locked in as his roommate and another man wouldn't be able to steal her for the time being.
Jair picked to room with Brittany because they were both looking to make a connection with someone new. Hans said he wished his relationship with Brittany worked out and the pressure was on.
David Barta, a medical student from Burbank, CA, selected Kendall Galan, a yoga instructor from Redondo Beach, CA. The pair had developed a strong bond in Paradise.
Carlos then stood behind Mariaelena, as expected, and he explained they had connected on a deep level.
Tyler Berta, a stock broker from Streator, IL, then picked Rosanna.
And in a shocking turn of events, Hans chose to stand by Rosanna as well just to ruffle her feathers and make a statement before his expected departure.
Mariaelena then had to announce whom she wanted to continue dating at the hotel, and she chose her "Prince Charm" Carlos, forcing Kyle to check out.
Hans then announced Rosanna and Tyler were running away with the competition and she was "playing everyone" at the hotel -- Tyler included.
Rosanna picked Tyler as roommate after Hans had a little outburst, and then Hans was asked to leave the hotel.
"Rosanna you need to grow up. Giving me advice? You haven't graduated college; you haven't started a business. The only thing you do have is an Instagram page and [your followers] are probably bots," Hans said after his elimination.
Kristin revealed Tyler's ex Shaylee would be checking into Paradise Hotel. According to Shaylee, she had stayed the night at Tyler's house the night before he left to film the reality series.
The guys in the hotel later chose to welcome Kaitlin, a 21-year-old feisty fitness enthusiast from Brooklyn, NY, into the hotel.
Although the guys selected Kaitlin over two other possibilities -- Jamie, a 23-year-old from Louisville, KY, and Nicole, a 29-year-old from Dallas, TX -- America was given the opportunity to vote for one of the ladies to check in to the hotel as well.
The ladies were hoping America would vote for Nicole, presumably because Jamie's looks were intimidating and she also appeared to have a great sense of humor.
