But as expected, Ann is pissed. She really likes Alana, but she refuses to let Bonnie be a part of YST.
Michelle is the mother of 11 year old Ashtyn. She wasn’t on the try-outs episodes. She seems like she’s a tough mom, but her daughter seems fairly talented. Michelle wants Ashtyn on YST too. She’s definitely got the skills, but she’s not a motivated kid. Her mom even says she’s lazy. (So am I, Ashtyn… so am I.)
Both Alana and Ashtyn would be super happy if they got on YST. Bonnie and Michelle have also been friends, so these two will be vying for the same spot. (I’m not sure the daughters realize that there is only one spot.)
Ann interviews, again, about how much she hates Bonnie. She thinks Bonnie needs a make-over. I won’t disagree, but I don’t think Ann has even met a cheeseburger she didn’t like.
At Bonnie’s house, Alana is stretching in the front yard for her mom and dad and is trying to do a back handspring with her dad as a spot. SHE IS EXACTLY LIKE SHE WAS LAST YEAR…. She’s terrified… and when she finally does it, she sucks.
Alisha is working on the routine that they have to perform in 5 days. The girls are so disorganized and the moms are seeing it. We get to meet Andrea, Kylie’s mom. She’s a stay at home mom who counts mistakes. I’m a stay at home mom, and my daughter is in college. Out of state. Who’s the lucky one now, Andrea? Kylie seems like a fairly natural gymnast and Andrea is pretty competitive. She interviews about all the estrogen in the gym. She claims she has to stay out of the drama, but then says she loves it because it’s her entertainment. I might like her.
I don’t like the drama… I love it.
Mandy, 8 year old Olivia’s mom, is a nurse. Olivia is a flyer and I think she’s good and totally cute. Her mom seems very intense and probably pushes her kids to excel. My sister pushed all her kids and they’re all like genius mega athletes… I was more hands-off and my daughter can’t catch a ball. But if someone is throwing a ball at her, it’s NOT because she’s playing a sport. I don’t do sports. Mandy worries that the bases don’t pay attention and that means Olivia can get hurt. She interviews that she likes to use the word “perfection” a lot with her kids… HAHAHA… I like to use the word “perfection” when my meatloaf doesn’t fall apart.
Looks great Youth Silver!
They do the routine again and I see about 5 girls that need to go. It’s a hot mess and at the end her youngest daughter, Cambree, drops to ground. Alisha is pissed at them all and so is Mandy. She likes when coach yells at them.
