Tasked with identifying their partner’s clothing during the first challenge in Episode 3, the men certainly impressed. It was a difficult task, because not only did they have to find five of their partners’ clothing items amongst a vast and coloufrul array, they had to do it in high heels on a revolving platform!
All seven men grinned and bore it, and most of them managed to find all five items. Mo and Phindi came out on top, as the former found all five items in time, while Phindi wagered enough on her man to push them to the top of the leaderboard.
Vix and Dyllan did not fare so well, pushing them to the bottom of the leaderboard in a tie with Gift and Bana. Although they did not land at the bottom, PJ and Marzanne did not continue their winning streak after last week’s power teddy success. However, they did provide plenty of entertainment, as PJ flung an endless stream of clothing at Marzanne, making it look like a closet had exploded on stage.
Dean provided lots of laughs as he tripped about on his heels, as did many of the other men. Enough of them looked very uncomfortable in the tottering high heels, and it’s no wonder: some of them really had to squeeze their feet into those shoes like Cinderella’s stepsisters.
The next challenge was not as physically challenging, but was still really tough. Dubbed Tone Deaf Karaoke, no title could be more apt as the men sang along to popular songs that sounded like they’d been remixed by a bunch of screeching, stammering cats.
It was all in the name of fun! Well, not quite. There was money at stake, but the couples really enjoyed each other’s performances – Dyllan and Vix had a particularly tender moment.
PJ and Marzanne were the only couple to successfully complete the challenge; but since Mo had wisely wagered only R 1 000 on the musically-challenged Phindi, they remained at the top of the leaderboard. Gift went all in on love, but since they did not complete the challenge, they were left with R0 and moved right to the bottom of the leaderboard.
To avoid being up for elimination next week, Gift and Bana must win the couples challenge. Will they make it? Tune in next week to find out.
