This was one of the most badly produced cheap shows of all time Australian TV. They just paraded models around and pretended they could act. A lot of people talk about the bad acting in Neighbours and Home and Away but the acting in Paradise Beach was so much worse.
A bit sad to hear Megan Connolly killed herself in 2001, I did not even know that until today. She was the hot blonde teen star (Tori Hayden) and the actress Kimberly Joseph played (Cassie Barsby)who was the hot brunette teen star. I met them at an appearance where they were giving away stuff as a promotion for the show. Very hot girls. Megan seemed the most down to earth, friendly 'girl next door' type girl. She didn't' mind chatting to her fans at all, quite different to Kimberly who thought she was 'all that' and seemed fake.
It was filmed on the Gold Coast and for some insane reason The fate of the show rested with overseas sales. Well the show was terrible so it never was going to sell well, I think it was sold to a United States cable network but it really did badly and was quickly axed.
So because continued production depended on good overseas sales income it did not come back for it's 2nd season and all the story lines were left up in the air.
