A septet of '80s and '90s heartthrobs reflect on the consequences of fame and look ahead to the future. Executive producers Scott Baio and Jason Hervey, and celebrity-psychology adviser Cooper Lawrence provide guidance.
Premiered: January 4, 2009
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.
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.
