Kehoe stars at the cross-dressing dare, which makes bitter rival Chandler reconsider his intention to abstain. The Kentucky jeans shoot is a hit, especially for Chandler, despite a late novice having her period causing a most unprofessional delay.

The female models get a short course in movement, especially for the catwalk, and treat some boys, who were let off to a club, to virtual lap-dances. Paul flirts innocently, Sorin acts jealously against Chandler, who is also hounded by Janice for innocent remarks she shamelessly spied upon.
