Episode Summary

The Possibly Straight Cat's Out Of The Bag
Episode 4 ended with the shocking revelation that one of the three remaining Mates--Brian, Franklin or Wes--is secretly straight. If James' "gaydar" is accurate and he picks one of the gay Mates, he will not only win that romantic trip to New Zealand but also pocket $25,000. Should he do otherwise, the money will instead go to the straight guy. Meanwhile, at the mostly empty Mates' House, emotions ride high. While all are happy to remain in contention, they express sorrow at the departure of three more newfound friends. Wes in particular sheds a few tears, and Andra stops by to commiserate. James has three more one-on-one dates before he makes his selection, and he is forbidden from directly asking anyone's sexual orientation or from revealing the twist. Let the games begin. James hopes the spa setting will be a good barometer of Franklin's comfort level and possibly his true sexuality. After a massage and a dip in the hot tub, the two settle in for a romantic dinner in the spa's lavish "private palace." James springs a battery of questions on Franklin--always avoiding the one question he most wants to ask--but turns up no conclusive answers. The final one-on-one is a night out with Wes, starting with a spectacular view of the valley. As the sun begins to set, the guys depart their limo for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride. The journey ends back at the Leading Man's house for a candle-lit, poolside dinner. Things heat up--literally--as a table full of candles ignites. Other kinds of sparks fly as James and Wes hold hands and share a goodnight kiss. Tomorrow morning will bring the final decision and the ultimate revelation. Who's gay? Who's straight? Can James tell?moreless
