The lads head to some local gay bars while Cara, disguised as a man, secretly looks on. The next day they board a trawler for a manly fish-gutting challenge which results in several green faces and a fair bit of vomiting before the all-important elimination spot.

However, host Jameela Jamil soon shocks some of the participants with the revelation that they are actually taking part in Playing It Straight...

However, if she picks one of the gay guys, he will walk away with £50k, and she will win nothing. In the age of the 'metro-sexual', can Cara tell who's 'Playing It Straight'? For that matter, can we?
