Episode Summary

The guy who gets carted away.
The 6 remaining guys are taken off to the road, where they must await their next test which will test there manly hood. The guys are taken to a place called the 'Tequila', filled with thousands of 'Pinas'. After a quick demonstration, the guys must harvest the pinas within 30 minutes. The winner gets a candle lit dinner with Zoe. It's not the quantity of the pinas, but the quality of them. Blondie lacks badly on them, unable to flip them on their sides, and complains that he felt his elbow pop and is taken off to hospital, and later has his arm put in a sling. In the end, of the grueling scorching hot challenge, Ben is chosen as the winner. When at dinner though, Ben is stood up and has to sit alone outside at the table, until Brain himself, aka the Troubadour, sits at the table with him and sings a little song, much to the dismay of Ben. Meanwhile, the guys are given a night out at a bar drinking shots, but unaware to them, Zoe- disguised is watching on, will the guys slip up now that they think no one is watching them? The guys after the first few shots of Tequila- Blondie having to drink lemonade because of his elbow, then have to lick more of a woman along with salt, while Alex goes a step closer and gives the woman a kiss on the lips. The guys are then challenged when having to do the same- to a guy. Danny is the only one to back down from the challenge until eventually pulling him self to do it. Zoe, feeling guilty for ditching Ben, has a small brunch with him in the morning, where he reveals both Blondie and Danny think they have Zoe sussed. Ben then tels Zoe, he wouldn't mind dating her and Zoe reveals that she trusts Ben. The guys must now do their most toughest challenge yet, and it's called 'The Chilly Muncher Challenge' The 6 lads must undergo a group of hot chillies, the next one just as hot as the next, and the last one standing wins, and gets a Jacuzzi date with Zoe. Ben is the one who struggles the most, until he and then Jonny both back down first. The 4 remaining lads continue to out do one another, and show off in front of Zoe but the strain is too much for Danny as he backs out leaving Alex, Blondie- yes he is actually doing quite well and Marco. In the end, Marco wins and gets the date with Zoe. On the date, Marco tells Zoe that he works as a naked butler, and tells her the reason why he may act gay is because he's used to being around naked guys, and he's open with his sexuality. However, Zoe is noun the wiser. The guys must then the next day do a mini challenge set by Zoe, which is to put up a small self and put their photo on, letting them use any equipment they want. Alex takes the longest with 15 minutes, while Blondie needs the help off of Zoe. In a Pre-eviction talk down, Zoe speaks to each guy individually. Zoe asks a few guys if she said that they could kiss her, where would they do it. Blondie kisses her on the lips, Marco chooses the cheek while Jonny blushes and asks if they should use tongue. Zoe then reveals that she feels the stuff that Danny does is feminine and is now even more unsure about him then ever. It's finally the forth eviction night. Will she choose Blondie, who did poorly on the pina challenge. Jonny who acts really gay once drunk, and hesitated to kiss Zoe. Marco after his choice of a job, and possibly dumb enough to tell her. Ben who maybe putting on the whole straight boy routine, or Danny who is maybe trying to be over heterosexual? Or maybe is it someone else or what?moreless
