The 25 eligible guys start arriving, eager to make an impression, including a handsome chef who steals a kiss; a Wall St. banker who brings her a pair of ballet tickets; a winery owner who pours her a bottle of her own special vintage, and a former professional baseball player who recites a poem he wrote for her.

Make It Or Break It | 9pm on ABC Family | Season Finale

Even Sasha is distracted by his feelings for Summer and news of her impending wedding. Through it all, team captain Kaylie tries to keep the peace among her teammates while growing increasingly uncomfortable with lying to the public about her anorexia — not only is keeping such a huge secret hurting her recovery, but it’s also affecting her gymnastics. When the team arrives in Rio, things go from bad to worse when the girls crumble under the seemingly insurmountable pressure.
