Episode Summary

The guy who shocked everyone.
In the first ever episode, the 10 lads are led into the Hacienda and meet one another for the first time. However, a visit by June, shocks the boys into oblivion. She reveals that some of the guys are actually gay, which surprises everyone who was fooled thinking they were all straight. However, they must keep their mouths shut when around Zoe. Finally the moment the guys had been waiting for, as they meet Zoe for the first time, but isn't so keen when getting touched on the face by Ben. Thinking they are all are straight and now ready to get it started, she's not told the truth just yet. The lads quickly speculate on who is actually gay, and all fingers point to Raphael, who's camp acting, tons of shoes and Vaseline for his lips are not fooling anyone. Pretesh is also suspected of being gay, because of some hair straighteners that he has. The lads are then sent for dinner, where at each plate is an envelope, containing a note telling them them that they will be cooking Zoe a breakfast in bed. Alex is the lucky one, and cooks breakfast in bed for Zoe, while the other lads are forced to cleaning up the pooh from around the stable. Later on, everyone tucks down for a meal, when June appears and finally reveals the secret to Zoe, who distraught walks out on the meal to go into her bedroom. Now knowing the actual rules, it's the moment the boys had been dreading. Zoe must now eliminate 2 guys who she thinks are gay, and they must leave straight away. Will it be the camp Raphael, will it be Pretesh, the hair straighter wielder, or Alex who cut Zoe's breakfast watermelons, into stars? Maybe Daniel who has those little woman like gestures, or possibly Peter who is overly straight - an act or is that really him?moreless
