8:35pm – Friday, August 17 on ABC2
The second last episode of Playing it Straight, is all about the modern man – he must be strong, but also sensitive…with only six guys remaining, Cara is getting down to the pointy end of business.
The first challenge involves splitting the remaining boys into teams. They must plan the perfect dining experience for Cara – what have they learned about her in the past few weeks? What is her idea of the perfect meal? As a team, they must plan their evening – everything from the menu to a special gift for her. They then head to the local market to buy supplies for the evening, and start cooking.
Cara is then presented with two menus – she chooses one and eats that dinner with the winning boys. The losers become their waiting staff for the night.
The boys get a rude awakening for the second challenge when they are introduced to Marc, a very butch fitness instructor, who puts them through their physical paces. The training culminates in an assault course that finishes with them pulling a car along with Cara inside, before they’re interrogated by Marc and Cara in a bid to out any secrets. Who will be going home tonight?
