When Gina sends the recording into the competition, Molly is furious with her, and things become even more heated when Molly turns out to be one of the two finalists. When Molly sees the other contender her heart sinks, as the girl is tall, blond and beautiful, unlike herself, being short and ordinary looking.

Will Charlie follow her, or choose the other contestant instead of Molly, her dream shattered forever?
