With more cuts looming, and only two rehearsals left, the girls struggle into their famous white cowboy boots for the first time. Then, Judy and Megan Fox dish out the critiques as they run through their final dance routines. In the blistering heat of Texas Stadium, Jay puts the girls' endurance to the test with an event he calls Pom Pom Punishment. It's four minutes of non-stop madness that should get the girls in shape for their pre-game dance, kick line, and flying splits. Later, Kelli and Judy make their final decisions as the girls dance their hearts out on the practice field. Suddenly, a veteran is on the bubble. Amid tears of disappointment, Kelli makes the very last cuts. Relief fills the hearts of all as the '08-'09 squad is announced. It's off to the team photo and some poolside sun bathing, as the girls bond at the DCC annual campout.

The entire squad needs a wake up call and guest choreographer Kitty Carter gives it to them. She takes the group through a grueling dance rehearsal only to leave a few girls emotional wrecks. Then it's time for a lesson in DCC etiquette. The fashion dos and don'ts put the squad on notice that they must perform off the field in the perfect DCC style. When Jay shows up with Dallas Cowboys football players, the game is on, in the 1st annual Vets vs. Rookies football game. The night's rehearsal is a challenge as the pace quickens and missteps on the dance floor lead to more girls falling short of the mark. Kelli continues cutting as she looks for the best 36 in the room!
After saying goodbye to one of their own, reality sets in for the remaining training camp candidates: nobody's position on the squad is secure. Hard charging, Kitty Carter is asked to work with the weaker girls and whip them into shape. The rookies are given “makeovers” to transform them into the image of a DCC. Can these makeovers give them enough confidence to raise their performance? Tonight is proof that your past can come back to haunt you as girls are called into Kelli’s office. How many live to dance another day?
Only two weeks into training camp, it's time to start making cuts. Uniform Fittings is the first order of business. It's a bittersweet moment when the rookies are measured for their uniforms because they have yet to really earn them. From the famous knotted blue blouse to the belted white shorts, the rookie candidates hope Kelli confirms that they have the DCC "look." Then the group competes in a grueling army fitness test to try and earn the privilege of being on the elite "Power Squad." At that evening's rehearsal the first cuts will be made. Who will be warned and who will be told, "This will be your last night?"
Each summer, over one thousand hopefuls descend upon Texas Stadium with the same goal of becoming one of the few chosen to don the famous blue and white uniforms.
