While Shabby and Caoimhe were enjoying their secret date, Mario and Nathan had put on ladies' clothing and make-up with the help of Ife, turning into outrageous characters from the Deep South of America. The pair began to "smack talk" each other, including Mario saying: "I'm Venus baby, Venus with a penis, I'm nice but I can also be naughty."
He also started groping Ben and Steve, saying: "Hey big boy, do you wanna see how far the rabbit hole goes?" Ben suggested they play a game of Jerry Springer involving the characters.
With Ben as Jerry, and Sunshine, John James, Josie, David, Steve and Corin watching, the fictional version of the TV show began, entitled "Tarts and Tantrums". Mario played Marco, a "43-year-old accountant who secretly works the streets at night as a male hooker, called Venus the male trap".
Ife played Marco's wife Tasha, who believed 'Marco' was "out at night playing bridge". An enraged 'Tasha' began fighting 'Marco' in traditional Jerry Springer fashion. Ife shouted "look at yourself!" Mario replying "I look damn good!" 'Jerry' then revealed 'Marco' was also seeing another man, 'Darlene', "a pre-op transsexual", played by Nathan, who was immediately fought by 'Tasha', with Nathan shouting "you better back the fuck up!".
After an initial reunion of 'Marco' and 'Tasha', it was revealed that 'Marco' had been sleeping with 'Lieutenant Steve', a "famous war veteran", "in his lunch hour". Steve, surprised to be involved in the game, pleaded his innocence, saying: "I always had my hands tied behind my back and I was blindfolded." Steve then admitted that he had "been sleeping with 'Marco's wife".
Ben ended the game, saying "the moral of today's story, is if you go out with a man who plays bridge, they're probably sleeping with a pre-op transsexual. Look after yourself and each other". The group bowed as the rest cheered, with Corin saying "absolutely brilliant". Ben then suggested playing another game with different characters.
