As the first season concludes, the remaining four pairs appear on stage in front of a studio audience for a final pageant, hosted by Jack Wagner. One contestant faints, and then the drama continues with an unexpected elimination and a surprise announcement regarding the prize money. In the end, one duo is crowned as the winning team.
The contestants work with Habitat for Humanity, then deliver speeches in public. One duo clash with each other about work ethics, and the departing team's behavior during the elimination ceremony surprises the judges.
The teams learn about six different types of smiles, then must put this knowledge to good use in a competition involving "holding a smile." The task proves more difficult when rivals try sabotaging one another. Also: One mother has to go to the hospital.
The duos get makeovers and do a photo shoot; during some downtime, a screaming match ensues when one mother overhears a secret catty conversation and confronts those talking behind others' backs. One team gets eliminated.
