Paradise Hotel repeats start tonight

Fox’s beloved summer orgy of crap, also known as Paradise Hotel, returns to television as the Fox Reality Channel begins to repeat the series. Tonight, two hour-long episodes will air back-to-back, starting at both 5 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. ET.

The channel’s web site says that the episodes feature “Reality Revealed,” possibly the “contestant commentary, pre and post-show interviews, auditions, out-takes and behind-the-scenes clips” that have been promised for some shows.

In any case, this means that there are now two opportunities to see Toni Ferrari on TV Monday nights: on Kill Reality and Paradise Hotel. Does life get any better than this?
