The reality game show that throws down the ultimate gaydar gauntlet, with money at stake for the man who can 'play it straight'.
A female contestant wants to find herself a new man, but she discovers whilst some of the boys are most certainly straight and looking for a girl, some of them are merely Playing It Straight. But can she tell who?
In fact, in what is an age of Metrosexuality – can we?
In each of the 8 shows the boys will compete in a number of comedy tasks and challenges, culminating in a female contestant eliminating one or more of them from the competition – but will she have chosen correctly?
If, at the end of it all, she picks herself a straight guy - the two of them will split the £50,000 prize money.
However, if she picks a guy who’s been Playing It Straight all along, he will walk away with the lot.
So power up your Gaydars and enjoy!
