Surmava’s plane was delayed so she arrived later at the hotel. “I just got to the Hard Rock and there’s no one here to help me with my bags,” she shared in her Instagram story. “So I paid this bellboy to carry my bags up with me. And it being Colin!” Macy-O’Toole is seen walking next to Surmava, carrying her luggage. She also shared the sweet swag bag she received from Schwager’s company, Stars Marketing Group. “Like, they thought of everything!” she exclaimed as she dug through the box. “Happy Birthday Gaby!”

Once Surmava got settled, she shared videos partying with Cohen inside the lively hotel. Loud music can be heard pumping in the background.

But Giancola thought Radcliffe would end up getting the drunkest out of the bunch. “I’m betting his shirt’s gonna come off and he’s gonna lose $1,000,” Giancola predicted. Macy-O’Toole said, “Hi! My name is Coly-Woly and I think Bobby Giancola is going to be the drunkest this weekend.” Surmava and Lucas agreed with Macy-O’Toole that Giancola will be the drunkest.
