Mariaelena and Rosanna were ousted during the Check-Out Ceremony that left off as a cliffhanger at the end of last week's broadcast. Both ladies were forced to leave because they had failed to establish a lasting connection with Carlos Garcia.
After the women voted Jared into the house and the men welcomed Jamie, Brittany Campbell and Jared won a competition together and were able to send either Tyler or Shailee packing since they had finished in last place. Brittany therefore opted to send Shailee home.
Finally, newcomer Jared was sent packing at the final Check-Out Ceremony of the season when his potential love interest, Kaitlin, decided to stick with Carlos instead.
The Paradise Hotel broadcast began where last week's episode had left off, with the Check-Out Ceremony in which Rosanna and Kaitlin were both standing behind Carlos and then Mariaelena and Brittany were both standing behind Jair.
Jair had to choose between "real and loyal" Mariaelena or Brittany, whom he had a lot in common and developed a friendship with.
Jair chose Brittany but admitted it was one of the hardest decisions of his life, and he cried when Mariaelena left the ceremony out of guilt.
Before she left, Mariaelena called Carlos out for being "fake," and she criticized how he's supposedly "a grown man."
"I just hope that I do find love someday, because I've been through a lot... I can't believe I trusted him and now I'm sitting here going home because I trusted him," Mariaelena said following her exit.
When it became time for Carlos to choose between two ladies, Rosanna argued he was never her second choice and she'd remain loyal to him until the end.
Carlos, however, acknowledged there was an alliance in the hotel and he wanted to rip that apart. He said he wasn't there to make friends, and so with that being said, he chose Kaitlin and ousted Rosanna.

"I can't say that I regret anything I've done here. I think I went about everything in a great way," Rosanna said, before letting out a pretty evil laugh.
Shailee was glad Tyler came back to reality and realized who he is, but she said Tyler had a lot of making up to do. Shailee also reminded Tyler she's not a game for him in Paradise.
Tyler was shocked Carlos didn't pick Rosanna, and so he pointed out Carlos was no longer a trustworthy guy at the hotel.
But life at the hotel soon returned to normal. Bobby and Tatum apparently had sex, but Tatum was still frustrated Bobby wasn't more affectionate with her.
And then Shailee revealed she had hooked up with a guy when she and Tyler were apart because of the show. Shailee confessed to Tyler that he wasn't the only one at fault for falling for Rosanna, but his feelings were hurt and he was annoyed she had "dropped a bomb" on him like that.
The guys would meet three new ladies at a pool party, while three new guys would hang out with the ladies on the grounds of the hotel. The current cast members would be able to decide who stays and who goes.
"I do believe Carlos is going to be just as loyal to me as I am to him," Kaitlin told the cameras, unafraid of the new singles entering the hotel.
The guys got to meet Kat, Kealani, and Jamie, who was previously an option for America to vote for. And the girls were introduced to Brad, Zakk, and Jared.
Brittany was desperate to make a love connection, and she wanted the same for Jair since they had become close.
As Brittany was getting to know Brad at the hotel, her best gal pals -- Tatum and Kendall -- talked about how they didn't want Brittany to find someone serious because that could get in their way of making it to the end and winning the money.
In a similar way, Tatum was relieved when her best friend Rosanna was kicked to the curb, which Kaitlin found extremely shady.
Tatum therefore talked to Kendall and Kaitlin about keeping the guy whom Brittany didn't actually like.
Kaitlin then warned Brittany about Tatum's scheming in order to expose Tatum. Brittany just didn't know whether she could believe that Tatum had some "master plot," and she wished this wasn't a game for once.
Brittany then bonded with Zakk and thought he was cute. Meanwhile, Jair instantly connected with Jamie.
Once it became time to make a decision, Brittany announced she wanted Zakk to enter the hotel, but Tatum argued he was on the show to play the game and Jared was a better option.
Brittany's feelers were up because Tatum was clearly conspiring against her.
The women ultimately voted for Jared to enter the hotel against Brittany's wishes, and he was "ecstatic." Brittany then fought with Tatum and told her that she was done, although Tatum insisted she cared about Brittany and had her best interest at heart.
But Brittany wasn't having it and said she's the queen of the Chess Board -- not a pawn.
Jamie also joined the cast at the hotel, and she chose Jair as her roommate. Jared selected Brittany as his roommate, but she felt no chemistry with him.
"I can't be here for love anymore because it's just not here. No more 'Miss Nice Girl,'" Brittany said, looking to now win the money.
Suddenly, all of the hotel guests were asked to pack their bags and head down to the beach for a competition. They also learned no new singles would be checking in for the rest of the season.
The couples were then required to play a game in pairs, with their roommates, and those with the strongest bonds were expected to perform the best.
Each couple was given a giant ice pop with a hotel key inside. The goal for each couple was to melt the popsicle using body parts to free the key.
Brittany and Jared won in the end, followed by Carlos and Kaitlin in second place, David and Kendall in third place, Jair and Jamie in fourth place, and finally Tatum and Bobby.
Tyler and Shailee therefore finished the competition in last place after about an hour of competing.
Brittany and Jared got to eliminate one person from the last-place couple.
After a brief discussion, the pair chose to send Shailee home because she had become great friends with Kaitlin, one of the strongest competitors in the house. Brittany also didn't want to see Tyler go.
Tyler noted he had already won by getting Shailee back, and so he offered to check out of the hotel as well. Shailee, however, wanted Tyler to stay and win it all.
Brittany was very sad to break up "the most genuine couple" in Paradise, but there was nothing she could do about it.
Tyler actually considered Brittany an option to couple-up with since they had become such great friends. And since Brittany overheard Jared saying he had picked her out of strategy, she considered Tyler as a roommate as well.
But Tyler also had his eye on Kaitlin. He didn't want to be physically intimate with another girl during his time on the show, but he figured there was a possibility he could pair up with Kaitlin after breaking up her relationship with Carlos.
Tatum was then shown walking into Carlos' room and kissing him -- again.
"If Bobby doesn't step up his game, I'm going to have sex with Carlos any day now," Tatum said in a confessional.
Carlos decided to tell Kaitlin about the kiss so she would trust him more and they'd be stronger together. Kaitlin didn't understand what Tatum was trying to pull, and she wasn't happy.
Meanwhile, Kendall and David were still totally solid with each other and hoped to win the game as a couple.
The couples then gathered for the final Check-Out Ceremony of the season, so everyone was instructed to choose their partners "wisely."
The cast members discussed taking Carlos out, but Tatum obviously didn't want him gone.
In fact, Tatum told the cameras she would pick him at the ceremony if he chose to stand behind her because Bobby wasn't giving her any attention or reciprocating her feelings.
Tatum then told Carlos that she wanted to be with him and would absolutely choose him if he dumped Kaitlin.
The episode concluded with the final Check-Out Ceremony in which Kristin explained one guy would be going home -- but he would be able to drag one couple down with him.
Tyler decided to stand behind Brittany because they were close as friends and could trust each other. David selected Kendall as his roommate because he said she had been nothing but loyal to him since Day 1.
Bobby opted to stay with his girl Tatum because he really liked her, and then Jair chose to stand behind Jamie because he loved her personality, drive and ambition.
Jared picked Kaitlin, saying she was "Queen B" of the house, and then Carlos stood behind Kaitlin, and Tatum appeared pissed.
Carlos explained he was able to open up to Kaitlin and his happiest times in Paradise had been with her. He looked forward to their late-night chats or kisses and noted they had "a genuine connection."
"I've truly caught genuine feelings for Kaitlin, and she knows I'm going to be loyal to her through thick and thin," Carlos announced.
