Sally Martin & Holly Shanahan in "Welcome to Paradise" - 2 (2007)

Episode 1 of "Welcome to Paradise" was appropriately titled "Checking In." In it, we are introduced to the series regulars, including Sasha, played by Sally Martin (Tori, Ninja Storm). Sasha finds herself overwhelmed with work, leading to her lobbying for the hostel's manager Alex to hire some help. The former Blue Ranger wears that color a few times during this episode. The arrival of newcomer Lucy, played by Holly Shanahan (LeeLee, Mystic Force) is the major story of the episode, as she gets involved with hostel staff member Zac, only to discover that his interest in her was only to collect another flag for his map of conquests. This sparks a feud that drives most of the show, as Lucy joins the staff as bar manager, despite Zac's betrayal.

Amy Jo Johnson in "Pursuit of Happiness" (2001)

Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, MMPR) appeared in the 2001 film "Pursuit of Happiness," not to be confused with the 2006 Will Smith film "The Pursuit of Happyness." Johnson appears in several scenes in the role of a perky, bi-sexual struggling artist named Tracy, who becomes the object of lead character Alan's affections. Even though her bubbly character befriends Alan, she appears to have no romantic interest in him. Tracy does become interested in Alan's buddy Mike, at least for a night, leading to Amy Jo Johnson's infamous nude scene. Given her large role (she even appears on the DVD cover), a full zip of her screencaps is available for download below.
