Get ready to stick that landing! Hellcats is the explosive new show on MuchMusic about cheerleading, hot moves and hotter stars. Looks like Hellcats is gonna be a drama-filled good time, and that’s just how we like it!
Let’s say hi to Marty, class. Hi Marty!
Marty is a pre-law student at Lancer University in Memphis. Her likes? He best buddy Dan, studying, wearing fingerless gloves and dreaming of the day when she can leave Memphis and her needy mother behind. Also, she likes to pretend to shoot cheerleaders off the top of pyramids.
Amazingly, her fake arrow knocked cheer biotch Alice off the pyramid! We’ll come back to this later.
Marty is able to attend Lancer U because of the scholarship she receives as part of her mother’s bonus for being a school employee. Unfortch, the scholarships for the kids of employees has been cut, leading Marty’s future in the proverbial toilet.
After pleading her case to the Dean, Marty overhears the cheeriest of all cheerleaders, Savannah, drop off her scholarship forms for cheerleading.
Marty is shocked and questions how ‘football groupies’ can get scholarships. Nothing personal, of course. Man down! Savannah’s been hit! Her response? “It doesn’t get more personal than calling someone a groupie.” Really? Lumping you in with the millions of other people in the world that are cheerleaders seems really, really impersonal. Savannah tries to smack Marty, Marty blocks, Savannah fakes left, Marty double checks, she shoots, she scores! Okay, maybe that all didn’t happen. But what did happen is Savannah putting a poster up for cheerleading tryouts (remember, Alice bit the big one?). Time for Marty to put on her bodysuit and werk dem mats.
Next we meet Vanessa, the Hellcats coach. She is informed by school execs that her program will be cut to afford the salary of Red Raymond, a big-shot football coach. Oh, and apparently he’s Vanessa’s ex. And now she’s dating the team doctor, Derrick. This could get awkward!
Vanessa knows that if her squad doesn’t place at the next competition the program will be cut. She’s looking to shake things up and when Marty starts to freestyle during the try outs, Vanessa is convinced that she’s the blond for the job. Alice, the injured cheerleader who’s spot is being filled by Marty, is not convinced. That, and I think she has perma-beotch face.
Now a member of the Hellcats, Marty has to move into Cheer Town, the most annoying place on earth! Marty’s mom is pretty distraught over her daughter leaving, but Marty has been waiting to get away from her alcoholic mother for years. She becomes roomies with Hellcats captain Savannah, who doesn’t seem to hold a grudge for the groupie comment. Savannah welcomes Marty with open pom poms, although it’s often harder to figure out whether Savannah is a cheerleader or Mandy Moore in Saved. WWJD?
Marty soon finds out that part of living in Cheer Town is coed bathrooms. Yay? Marty and Alice have a verbal smackdown in the showers (sorry people, clothes stay on) and Alice pulls the oldest trick in the cheer book when she snatches Marty’s clothes while she’s in the shower. D’oh! Marty manages to hide in a bathroom stall and is rescued by teammate Louis, who seems to be crushin’ her mad hard.
Later at practice Marty finds out that she’s Louis’ flier (let the crushing continue) and the whole team seems to be hip to her smooth moves. Except for Alice. Shocker.
Marty and Savannah have a heart to heart that night while sitting on their matching beds. Marty explains that she stopped gymnastics after her mother showed up drunk to one of her meets and proceeded to throw up on Marty while drunk. That’s tres embarrassing. Marty said that she is fine to perform, as long as her mom isn’t in the audience. Alice happens to drop by the bedroom at this moment, asking for a pen. Do you think she overheard their plan? Do you think she’ll try to sabotage Marty, the girl that is occupying her spot on the team? Do you think Snooki tans too much? Yeah, me too.
Alice pays Marty’s mom a visit at the bar she works at on campus and tells her that Marty is uber-excited to see her at the competition on Saturday. Roh row.
While hanging out with her bestie Dan, who seems to have a penchant for filming Marty, he reminds his old pal to not turn into one of ‘them’ (Hellcats). Oh ya, it also becomes 1000% obvs that Dan has warm fuzzies for Marty and she has no clue.
It’s competition time! The team is ready in their uniforms, rocking the face stickers. Will Marty’s mom show up? Will Marty choke? Will anyone throw up on her? Will Savannah continue being borderline creepy-friendly? Will Dan continue watching his 15 second video of Marty? Find out next week on an all new episode of Hellcats on Friday at 8pm ET!Tweet
