Get rid of kristin cavallari

Kristin (the host of the show), was a villain on a reality show called "The Hills" a decade ago. She was a bitch on it and apparently still is! She's just bitch naturally n her personality doesn't help. I LOVED THIS SHOW BESIDES CRINGING EVERYTIME KRISTIN WAS ON CAMERA. HER RID OF HER!!! OOPS! GET RID OF HER!!! SHE'S ALWAYS ACTED LIKE SHE WAS BETTER THAN EVERYONE. I WON'T WATCH NEXT SEASON IF SHE IS THE HOST. There's a difference in keeping a villain around for drama on t.v. and that evil girl!!!! I won't watch if Kristin is part of the show. I CAN'T TAKE THE CRINGING

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Like its predecessors, this voyeuristic and predictable series features good-looking people who claim to be looking for love in what amounts to a modern-day meat market. In addition to the sexual attachments cast members are expected to make with one another within an extremely short amount of time, couples must also figure out if they have genuine feelings for one another, all while exploiting each other's desire for romance. The Big Brother-type camera footage of private conversations and intimate moments in bed creates some interesting tensions, but the endless conversations about who has feelings for whom gets tedious rather quickly. All of this produces conflicting and problematic messages about what constitutes falling in love, and the role that sexuality plays in it. It's not easy to take the hookups on unscripted shows seriously, but Paradise Hotel makes it almost impossible.
