FOX plans summer Paradise Hotel.

FOX plans summer Paradise Hotel.
FOX will air a series this summer that offers its cast nothing more than the opportunity to live for a period of time in a hotel. Paradise Hotel will follow 12 singles, six men and six women, who live in a resort and vote one person out of the resort each week. While someone goes home every week, a viewer will become part of the show, joining the remaining cast at the hotel. There are no prizes except the resort stay, although FOX promises “a final twist at the end of the series,” The Guardian reports. Starting June 16, two one-hour episodes will air each week, on Monday and Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET, for eight weeks.
