"Rocking the Boat" – The tension between Lauren and Zack mounts when Heather, a Playboy magazine bombshell, arrives and puts the men in a tail-spin competing for her attention, and an apparent one-night-stand between Usman and a sexy new housemate, Anelka, may turn in to something more, on "One Ocean View," MONDAY, AUGUST 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Lauren, a proven master manipulator, becomes jealous when she sees Zack tripping over himself for Heather’s affections. The gloves come off when Lisa calls a meeting to discuss sleeping arrangements, and Zack sarcastically suggests that Lauren stay with KJ. Lauren doesn’t take Zack’s flippant remark lightly, and an ugly fight between the two escalates to a shouting match in front of the entire house. Meanwhile, Playboy model Heather has successfully hooked John’s interests and the two can no longer contain the mounting attraction.
Another fetching roommate, Anelka, joins the house, and Usman is immediately drawn to her. As things steam up between the two — in the hot tub and the cabana — Zack and Lauren sleep separately for the first time. The next morning, Usman and Anelka make the walk of shame back to the house, but neither will talk about their overnight adventures. Is Usman just using Anelka, or has he met his match in this provocative new member of the summer share?

Anelka, 23, senior account executive for photography company
Heather, 27, sales accountant manger / recruiter
John, 24, broker for a Wall Street firm
K.J., 26, owner and operator of two women’s health club franchises
