At the front desk, Jabby “calls” the “competition” to ask a question and “learns” that one team from Ohio will be there this weekend. Well, obviously there is only one team in the entire state of Ohio so it must be Crazy Cathy and her Candy Apple’s. Jabby gets all tense and yells that the girls had better have their shit together because she doesn’t want to finish fourth in front of Cathy.
I guess it’s the next day and the moms are rhinestoning in the booth.
Why do they still have to make costumes? Couldn’t they have negotiated their way out of that during their strike? Apparently Shrill’s specially designed gray coshtume isn’t ready, but she is going to try and add green fabric to it like Jabby asked. Kelly says that Shrill should know better not to do this kind of stuff. You’d think she’d have learned her lesson after last year’s tantrum in Texas.
Group rehearsal and the evil hats are causing problems. Kelly and Holly agree that it looks like the girls are holding back because they’re afraid of dropping the hats. Jabby brings up the first-ever episode, when Chloe’s headpiece fell off and how that nearly ended in a nuclear showdown with the Soviet Union. Bottom line: a dropped hat will ruin the whole number. Don’t cross the streams!
At Kendall’s rehearsal, Jabby calls this solo a “defining moment” moment in Kendall’s life. She yells at Kendall for marking steps instead of doing them and says that Maddie would never do that. Shrill interviews that she’s glad Kendall has a solo, but sorry Jabby’s so hard on her.
Ohio. Time to meet the guest choreographer who is here from L.A. Rumor has it he’s very good with hip-hop. The dance will be called Own It and is, according to Cathy, very masculine. Also, Jaylin can slide across the floor on his head.
That is pretty impressive. And potentially painful. Cathy says the boys flew in from all over the nation, which begs the question, how the hell is this Cathy’s number if the boys are ringers and she flew in some dude from L.A. to choreograph it??
Aren’t I cunning?
ANTM Fan nailed it by saying all that Cathy’s done is provide studio space for them. This show makes my head hurt.
Jabby yells at everyone (but mostly Kendall) during a group rehearsal. Jabby says Kendall can’t handle all the pressure PLUS she has no solo coshtume even though it was supposed to have been ready today. Jabby says without a coshtume, she doesn’t think Kendall will be able to do the solo. Shrill freaks out, amping it up to eleven and saying she’s leaving because “they” told her the costume was ready and Jabby shouldn’t take it out on Kendall. Shrill screams at the other moms that they are idiots if they stay and let Jabby destroy their children. Kelly interviews that she (Kelly) said the same thing last season. Yeah, but she pretty much complained about everything last season. After awhile everyone stopped listening. Anyway, whatever the hell Shrill is screeching about has nothing to costumes, am I right?
Cluck, cluck, cluck
