"Paradise Hotel 2" Sizzles This Winter on MyNetworkTV and Fox Reality Channel

Amanda Byram Returns as Host of the Provocative Fox Reality Original

LOS ANGELES -- The popular reality program "Paradise Hotel" returns to television this winter with all new episodes on MyNetworkTV and Fox Reality Channel, the only all-reality, all-the-time cable and satellite network, starting Monday, February 4th, announced Greg Meidel, President, MyNetworkTV and David Lyle, President, Fox Reality Channel. The Fox Reality Original series, "Paradise Hotel 2" will debut on MyNetworkTV at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT), with a late-night TV-MA version on Fox Reality Channel at 1:00 a.m. (ET) / 10:00 p.m. (PT).

In making the announcement, Meidel stated, "We are thrilled to have 'Paradise Hotel 2' on MyNetworkTV. The series, offering a mix of outrageous guests, remote hideaways and compelling twists, is an exciting addition to our Monday night schedule."

"Paradise Hotel 2" features a cast of eleven sexy singles who check-in to a secluded resort for an adventure-filled experience and the chance to win a cash prize. To stay in paradise, guests must find a roommate of the opposite sex and the individual left without a roommate will have to leave the hotel. Things take a dramatic turn when new guests check-in and have to quickly make and break alliances to stay in the competition. There are no rules in this game of strategy and manipulation where sex and seduction are among the tools players use in their battle to avoid eviction.

Lyle added, "The first season of 'Paradise Hotel' proved to be a ratings bonanza that left viewers wanting more. Our newest original combines the exciting unpredictability of a reality show with the addictiveness of a night time drama. Fans, old and new, will love 'Paradise Hotel 2' as it offers more drama, passion and manipulation than ever before."

The primetime MyNetworkTV version of "Paradise Hotel 2" will feature all of the intriguing drama, lust and betrayals. And Fox Reality Channel's late-night, mature audience version exposes even more steamy exclusive footage.

"Paradise Hotel 2" is a Fox Reality Original co-production with MyNetworkTV. Mentorn USA, the production company behind the first "Paradise Hotel," also returns to produce both the broadcast and cable versions, with executive producers Richard Hall, Dan Barraclough and David Leach.
