Episode Summary

The guy who accused Zoe.
Zoe gets ready to knock up her game plan, and try to switch on her gaydar after the disaster last episode. The episode begins with the lads in a contest, separated into groups of two, they must outrun cowboys on horses, who will catch them with their ropes. The last one standing, will have a special one on one with Zoe from both groups. Danny tried making a deal, by giving them all £100 if they leave him alone, but it turned out bad as all three cowboys went for him. In the end, "Blondie" Daniel and Alex are the last one standing, and get to have a picnic with Zoe. At the picnic, Zoe tries to trip up Alex by asking him loads of personal questions if he has done stuff with guys, but he denies them everytime. Then to hot things up, the men must take a shower- but there's only one! The next challenge to see who will make Zoe breakfast in bed, is for a sexy dance, which the boys must do together- with Zoe secretly watching near by. However, Demetrius claims to fall sick, and spends that night and day lying down sick, but maybe puts on a little too much drama. The remaining 7 lads must learn a sexy dance, and then team up and do it together. In the end, Zoe picks Jonny as best dancer, and also gets to have a saucy dance with Zoe to boot. However, Danny accuses Zoe to the dancing about, how well she knew the dance, and how well she danced with Jonny, claiming it was fixed. In the aftermath, "Blondie" and Ben have an argument, with Ben threatening to punch "Blondie" Meanwhile, Danny continues his ranting, and this time accuses Alex of being an actor, getting payed by the company. For the breakfast in bed, Jonny cheats and gets the cooks to make it, and then lies to Zoe, telling her he done it- is this the first time he has lied to her? Who knows? Jonny however predicts that Jonny may be straight, and Alex as well. Next the guys are put under their paces with a challenge- ride a bucking horse. They must first get on the horse, have one hand strapped and then raise the other when they are ready to go. Unaware to them all,Zoe is watching near by at how they react. However, while each guy is reluctant to do it, they find out that it wasn't a physical test but a mental one, and for those who raise their hands ready for the ride pass- everyone but Jonny raises their hands, but when confronted by Zoe, claims it was because of his backache. "Blondie" on the other hand, was more concerned about his looks, and if he should not wear the hat, and wear a jacket, and claims the rope is tied too tightly too his wrist, prompting Zoe to think if he's gay. With the elimination looming, Zoe gets to have a private one on one with any guys of her choice. June arrives to give her some pointers- When asked how would a guy check if they have dirty finger nails, if they gesture with their back palm away from them to look at their nails- their gay, but if they check them out bent then they're straight. Determined to put this under the test, Zoe first one on one is with Demetrius, and when asked the question does it the straight way. George is next but not shown the question, he talks about nearly every girlfriend he has had, prompting that he might be gay. Next is Danny, but when asked the question, he for a split second checks his nails the gay way, but quickly changes it the straight way, but Zoe's eyes were too quick... Near the end, George fears he might go as well as Demetrius, and others think George is gay. The elimination has arrived. Who will Zoe eliminate next? Will it be Peter, who's straight acting has now slowly evaporated, as his camp side is showing. George who continued talking about girlfriends, Demetrius who was over dramatic with his illness, Blondie who was overly camp when going to ride the horse, Danny for lashing out on Zoe, or Jonny who when drunk becomes really camp?moreless
