Their sexuality may be in doubt, but for me there's little doubt Ben and Sam are identical twins. As mabbus-cattus1I said, they don't have to look exactly identical. I struggled at times to tell them apart.

It'll be really interesting to see if Sam is actually straight. He seems very stereotypically gay, but then so does Andrew Stone! If he's playing it straight, he's not doing a very good job (only very marginally better than Ben!). I don't think his feelings for Cara are at all genuine either way.

I'm going to defend Cara here. Yes, her gaydar's pretty rubbish, but she seems like a nice girl who's genuinely looking for love or for true friendship rather than playing to win the money. Also, despite what others have said, I think she's a very pretty girl with a great figure. The average man would be very lucky to have her.

By the way, I'm not convinced Danny's straight, but he's very cute!

I think the way the final is going to go has become quite apparent now and I reckon it'll be a brilliant episode

I've been convinced Sven is gay since the first show! I'm really unsure on the rest, I think Danny is probably straight, but the thing about him and Ben is throwing me off a bit... I think Dean might be gay and I have no idea about Sam. I'm gutted Ben is gone, I loved him! He was so sweet.

I've known Ben was gay since last week when I saw him in a London gay bar with someone who is still on the show... not entirely sure they are a couple now but they did have their tongues down each other's throat at one point.... spoiled it a bit for me He's *VERY* camp in real life, I'm surprised he made it so far but I guess as Cara mentioned, she really enjoyed his company.

I've really enjoyed this show... my guilty pleasure of the last few weeks.

I love how everyone on here is saying " . . . is OBVIOUSLY gay, how can she not see that!" only trouble is different people are saying that about pretty much all of them! I've been awful at guessing so far! Thought both Levi and Jorden were gay But my predictions for the final are :-

Sam - Straight (Although i seem to be in the minority here )
Sven - Gay (and this is the one i've been most sure of, i think him telling Cara he doesn't fancy her is so he doesn't hurt her or give her any false impressions)
Dean - Straight
Danny - Straight

So lets expect pretty much the opposite!

I also have to stick up for Cara as well! She seems really lovely, and genuinly has become attatched to alot of these guys, and how much paranoia would be on her mind, makes things incredibly hard for her!

You should have chucked a bucket of cold water over them and shouted "no spoilers"

Sven is the one that I am really, really thrown about. Cara's anger in the preview only really makes sense to me if it's directed at him, which makes me think he must be gay. I'm not so sure she'd be like that with Sam after Ben's elimination (I reckon after that she'd be fairly confident he's gay).

Thus... my final predictions are -

Sam - GAY
Sven - GAY
Danny - STRAIGHT
Dean - STRAIGHT

I also agree Cara has been massively underrated. She's definitely attractive with an amazing body. That said I don't think she's universally hot. Because the straight blokes don't seem to be attracted to her, they're having a harder job proving themselves.

If Dean isn't straight I'll eat my hat. So sexy!

I am really confused now. I was convinced Danny and Sven were straight and Dean and Sam gay but now I feel completely clueless again!

I now think Sven may be gay because when he was in the interrogation cell and she asked him about past girlfriends he was reeling the names off like a list as if he had pre-rehearsed them - it didn't sound natural.

It would be a big twist if Sam turned out to be straight considering his twin is gay!!

I wasn't surprised by last week's result but this week I think could be a major shocker!!

I agree with you on everything

I'm sure Sven is gay because, as you say, everything with him seems very rehearsed. Shocking though with him saying "pick me and you'll walk away with 25k", I'm sure it's him she's telling to eff off in the promo!

Dean is still the one I can't make my mind up on - I'm fairly sure Danny and Sam and are both gay, so am thinking he must be straight just out of fairness to poor Cara

A friend told me I should give this show a go. So I did. I found the episode I watched totally offensive.

So a man is determined straight if he shows he is more macho and brave by abseiling and such and such? Gay men could never do that with guts. I'm not usually one to have a sense of humour bypass, but I just couldn't find anything redeemable about the programme.

I assume it plays to stereotypes because it is made for a mainstream straight audience. Which is just as patronizing to the straight viewers.

I don't think of it like that AT ALL . It shows that the stereotypes aren't as clear cut as they are thought commonly. We've had a few camp straight guys, and a few straight acting gay guys go, so I don't think it is even trying to be offensive.

BIB - Or it could be that he is straight and he has a rant at her for not picking him as a safe bet to win 25k so you could interpret it either way !

it has to be sam or sven
I'd hazard a guess at Sven. She seems to like the other guys a lot more...

I've known Ben was gay since last week when I saw him in a London gay bar with someone who is still on the show... not entirely sure they are a couple now but they did have their tongues down each other's throat at one point.... spoiled it a bit for me He's *VERY* camp in real life, I'm surprised he made it so far but I guess as Cara mentioned, she really enjoyed his company.

Pahaha, I really want to know who you are talking about! Ohwell, it's only another 5 or so days!

So gay men appear... for money. Its funny how people will put aside integrity for a few minutes of fame. I didn't say its deterimental to gay men, I said I found it offensive. I'm not speaking for the nation. Notice the smiley face I used? I'm quite chilled thanks.

The point of the show is to show that silly stereotypes ultimately mean nothing. The first series was won by a gay man who wasn't even remotely camp and by far the most macho guy in the whole thing. The girl picked him cause she assumed he was a safe bet and boy was she proved wrong.
Well she wasn't actually because they gay guy she picked (anyone remember his name?) let her keep the money, he felt he had won by proving the point that stupid stereotypes of gay men are just that stupid stereotypes.
Its been a while that was the jist I think...

But ultimately its just a bit of fun that pokes fun at straight men as well as it does gay men. I'm all for equal opportunities piss taking.


In regards to the preview of Cara teling someone to eff off next week don't we also hear her call them a "lying little St in the preview they show at the start of each show. So I think it must be one of the gay guys...
