Last season Paris Hilton searched the world over for someone to call her best friend forever. After 10 weeks of fun, thrills, drama and mayhem Paris was sure she found all the qualities of a BFF in a young rocker named Brittany. She was dead wrong! It turns out that Brittany was less interested in a real friendship than she was in seeking her own fame and fortune. In other words, Brittany was a "hungry tiger."
That leaves Paris once again in search of a new BFF. But, this time, she's taking no chances!
Step one on the quest for a new BFF is the audition. Hundreds of girls and guys take the stage trying to convince Paris why they are BFF material. Some were cute, some charming and others just plain ridiculous. In the end Paris picks 13 girls and one guy as final BFF candidates and tells them to pack their bags for Las Vegas!
Stepping out of the Las Vegas airport, the potential besties are greeted by Onch, a former BFF contestant. He welcomes the new crew and ushers them to several chauffeured SUVs, which escort the challengers to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
En route to the hotel, we get to know several of the contestants, including a Brooklyn toughie named Christina. Unbeknownst to the BFFs, Christina is actually Paris in disguise! Right from jump, she's observing the others without their knowledge, finding out who's real and who's fake.
At the hotel, the girls and Steven are quick to uncork the champagne. "Gina" keeps a low profile while observing the group dynamic. Tiniecia offers her blunt opinion of Katie's spray-on-an. Nicole's bubbly personality and squeaky voice put everyone on edge. To ease the tension, Paris surprises the girls with a special delivery from room service. At first, it seems as if nothing is out of the ordinary with these waiters ... then suddenly, the music kicks in and they start stripping! And as the sexy waiters dance, some of the girls show their wild side!
Soon, the BFFs find a note from Paris, instructing them to prepare a show-and-tell presentation about why they are BFF material. The girls and Steven perform for a body double they think is Paris Hilton. Amanda wows the group with a back flip, Kristen performs an exotic dance, and Rachel ... well, Rachel creeps everyone out. Little do they know, the real Paris is sitting among them, disguised as "Gina."
After show-and-tell, the party begins. The group heads to a hip and happening nightclub where they all get a chance to strut their stuff. Nicole and Stefanie are quick to hit the dance floor, while Rachel manages to literally hit the dance floor, bruising her ass and looking like a fool in front of everyone, including "Gina."
The following morning, Onch wakes the BFF wannabes and sends them to the throne room. Here they discover that the Christina, the tough chick from Brooklyn, was actually Paris in disguise. The real Paris enters and takes her seat at the throne. She puts Arielle and Amanda up for discussion, because they look the same and made little effort to stand out. Both girls will need to step it up a notch if they want to avoid being eliminated at the end of the day.
Next stop, the Wayne Newton estate, where Paris introduces the girls to a real hungry tiger! Paris explains how the dangerous beast will use its cunning sense to sniff out which of them is also a "hungry tiger." One by one, each girl timidly pets the animal. All is well until Rachel takes the stage and the seemly peaceful tiger freaks out! Paris is so shocked by the tigers reaction, she sends Rachel packing that very minute. That's one down, a dozen to go.
Arriving at their next challenge back at the Hard Rock, the girls are shocked to find a trio of stripper poles and an enormous audience full of young spring breakers, all cheering wildly. It's time for these BFFs to prove they can work it! The girls take turns dancing for the crowd and getting their sexy on. Only Stephen, the gay Mormon and lone boy of the group, is too chicken to take on the pole. Because of this, Paris puts him up for discussion.
As night falls, the BFFs gather on the beach for the first elimination. Amanda, Stephen and Arielle are all up for discussion. Paris, who is seated on a throne out in the water, congratulates Amanda for stepping up and standing out during the day's challenges and spares her from this week's elimination. This leaves Arielle the wallflower and Stephen the chicken to stand before Paris. After careful consideration, Paris decides to give Arielle her famous "TTYN" (talk to you never).
Just as Stephen thinks he's off the hook, Paris shares with the group a rumor she heard about Stephen hating to get his hair to get wet. In order to prove his desire to be her friend, Paris dares Stephen to jump in the water and swim out to her. Without a second's hesitation, Stephen dives in the water fully clothed and swims out to Paris. He emerges soaking wet with his hair a complete mess. Paris spares Stephen tonight, but warns him that he's on thin ice!
Paris congratulates the group for surviving round one of the competition and announces that tomorrow they'll be heading for BFF mansion in Los Angeles, California. Prepare yourselves potential BFFs -- this is only the beginning!
