The idols' journey comes to a close with a final glance at the past, and a hopeful glimpse of the future. The guys each have a private meeting with Cooper to say goodbye to their former selves, and the demons of their past. Later, fed up with being cooped up in the house, the guys decide to take a trip to the beach, do some surfing, and enjoy their final day together in the sun. Then it's time for the wrap party, where the idols say their final goodbyes and receive special gifts that not only help relaunch their careers, but change their lives.
Our idols get the chance to audition for two high profile casting directors and learn the do's and don'ts of auditioning. After working with world-renowned acting coach Howard Fine to master their skills they get one more chance to make an impression on the casting directors.
For their sixth week in the house, the idols pitch themselves to a panel of industry gatekeepers - casting directors, producers, and entertainment executives - who have the power to make or break their careers. After the pitch, the guys get the rare opportunity to listen to the gatekeepers' comments behind a two-way mirror.
The teen idols have emotional reunions with people from their past who were affected by their fame. Then, the guys compete to see who can raise the most money by auctioning themselves for charity, but it unexpectedly leads to one of the idols leaving the show.
In an effort to reclaim their lost fame, the guys take a walk through Paparazzi Alley in Beverly Hills to attract attention and have their photos taken. Getting media attention in the 'New' Hollywood is more than one idol bargained for, and after a tough therapy session with Cooper Lawrence, he’s not sure if he's going to make it through the rest of this journey, but a visit from Scott Baio convinces him to stick it out. Next, the guys are given 24 hours to put together a play for underprivileged kids in an exercise designed to remind them of what they love about performing. The guys are nervous to entertain this eager audience, but they are reminded of why they got into the business in the first place.
The former teen idols take a star map tour through Hollywood but this time, the stops along the way are all about them. Group therapy with Cooper proves too much for one idol forcing Scott Baio to take matters into his own hands and the drama continues as the guys compete against each other for a national TV spot.
This week, the Teen Idols are judged by a focus group of women. The women have no idea that the former idols are watching from behind two-way glass, so their comments are brutally honest. Some teen idols fare better than others, but they all learn valuable information that can help them make a comeback. In group therapy with Cooper Lawrence, the guys discuss the focus group's harsh comments, further exploring their love-hate relationship with fame. Then, celebrity stylist Jen rade, AKA The Wicked Witch of Wardrobe, shows up to help the guys respond to the focus groups comments with a head-to-toe makeover. As a reward for all their hard work, a celebrity photographer takes publicity photos of each guy, giving them one more important tool they will need for their comebacks.
Seven former teen idols move into a house together and begin their quest to regain their fame and a second chance at a career in movies and TV. They face demons from their past in their first group therapy session. When a red-carpet event turns out to be more than they expected, one of the guys packs his bags.
