It is true that the guys are confined just like the girls. Ben (cutie pie!!) in his commentaries on the show, stated just that. He said they were pretty much prompted to discuss the show and in particular the girl. The only one who got to go out on Jen's show that I read about was Virgin Warrior Josh who got to go run each day but he wrote on his site that he had to make deals w/ the producers to get running time, like agreeing to answer the door to Jen without his shirt one. Remember Jen's smirking look and snide comment on that? Oh wait, Jen made smirking looks and snide comments about ALL the men!
