Further details

Round 1: Adder and Eve

Joe's team wear perspex pants with fig leaves on the front. Two get fruit in the pants, one gets snakes.

Ellie's team correctly guess it was Laura with the snakes.

Round 2: Take Me To Your Feeder

Ellie's team must eat food stuff from an assistant dressed as an alien. One of the three has horrible tasting food.

Joe's team guess it was Ian with the horrible taste, it actually was Harry.

Round 3: Notice Broad

Harry, Sinitta and Joe must staple posters onto female models. Two of the models have boards in front of their chest, one will be getting the staple direct in the flesh.

Laura guesses it is Joe.

Ellie and Iain guess it was Sinita most timid about stapling the model. They were right.

Round 4: Swat's Happening

Joe's bottom, poking through a board, gets shot at by three paintball guns. Two are blank, one fires a paintball. After each shooter takes it in turns, Ellie's team ask for one of the shooters to take a second shot.

They guess correctly that it was shooter three.


Ellie's team win.
