My Super Sweet 16S4 • E1Allison
Allison lives in the prestigious part of Atlanta, Buckhead Park. This self-proclaimed "Buckhead Betty" likes to shop, and her daddy gets her what she wants. Allison's father is a major entertainment attorney, so she's accustomed to celebrity parties and wants her Sweet 16 to be huge. Allison's having a debutante ball at home, then a Sweet 16 dance party at Diddy's restaurant, Justin's. Later, after shopping for dresses, Allison fails to find the perfect one and threatens not to go to her party if she doesn't look better than everyone there. To show everyone that her party is big before it even begins, Allison has 1980s sitcom actor Emanuel Lewis (Webster) drop off invitations with her. On the day of the debutante, R&B group TLC member and family friend Chilli helps Alison tie her dress. Allison's beautiful debutante entrance moves her mother to tears. While being driven to the Sweet 16 party led by a marching band parade, hit producer Jermaine Deupri jumps in the car with her. The crowd goes wild when Jermaine introduces Allison. The party is really on and poppin' when G-Unit's Lloyd Banks and Young Buck perform. Things only get better when Allison's parents present her with a box containing the keys to the $45,000 Mercedes Benz that she wanted. Allison says, "It was the most amazing Sweet 16 ever."
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E3Stephanie
Stephanie is the ultimate perfectionist and everything in her life has to be EXACTLY how she wants it -- including her Quinceaneara. Dawning her $50,000 crown ornate Versace tiara made of 18k gold, diamonds, sapphires, and antique pearls, Stephanie proclaims herself the medieval queen of Miami with a "Hells yeah." Stephanie's thirst for having power is apparent when she says to her mother who bought the expensive Versace crown, "This is my Quince and you're just paying for it." Stephanie's party theme is Venetian masquerade ball. For her party dress, Stephanie has an elaborate 18th century-style dress custom made with imported gold trim and green velvet for $4,500, and 200 porcelain masks from Italy at a total cost of $8,000. Over $42,000 is spent on 20 lavish floral centerpieces flowers for her guests. Also, Stephanie has 15 birthday cakes. In one day alone, Stephanie's party budget is over $61,000. She tells her parents, "You're investing in my memories." In traditional Quinceaneara fashion, Stephanie has a thirty-person court (15 girls and 15 boys) who will wear Venetian-style formal wear, specially ordered powdered wigs and custom-made dresses while they perform ballroom dances. In her backyard, Stephanie lists the strict rehearsal rules for her court dancers and warns, "If you wanna live, be there." Next Stephanie and friends gather on her bed where they flip through the pages of a yearbook and discuss who's not invited like girls with pasty hair and big hoop earrings. Stephanie makes it clear that "no skanks are invited." Later, Stephanie has a professional video shoot on a white horse that she outfits to look like a unicorn. This footage will be played at her bash to create a mystical atmosphere. Handing out invitations is Stephanie's next task, and she does it big. Stephanie arrives on a gondola through the lake to her backyard and walks on a red carpet to meet excited guests hoping to receive party invitations. During a family talk, Stephanie lets her parents know that she wants to go to school in England for a semester. Her parents worry that she's not mature enough. Stephanie fears that she won't get to go, but she's determined to push until she gets her way. On the day of her Quince, Stephanie worries because she wants her party to be perfect, but her court performers are not yet organized and ready. "This is a total nightmare," she complains. The nightmare doesn't last long. Although she's so stressed that her head hurts, Stephanie organizes her performers and yells out directions to them such as, "Get in your mother (blanking) lines." Woo. Stephanie says loves her court, but recognizes that she's "acting like a dictator." The moment Stephanie has waited for arrives. She enters the party in her gown, escorted to the dance floor by her father where she dances with her court. Stephanie's guests are amused by the little person strip tease dancer. To top the party off, Stephanie's parents give her the gift that she wants: a card announcing that she's going to school in France. Stephanie's party guests are envious that she's going to France. The party costs around $300,000 total. An elated Stephanie dances and sings, "I'm going to France, bit**es!"
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E4Amberly
Amberly, who hails from Virginia Beach, Va., has been referred to as the blonde Barbie. Appropriately, pink is Amberly's signature color because it's girly and makes her feel like a princess. With that in mind, the theme for her My Super Sweet 16 party will be "Pink Ice." Raised by her mother, Amberly did not meet her father until she was older. As someone who believes peoples are jealous of her rich girl vibe, Amberly also thinks her father spoils her to compensate for lost time. Case in point: He's set a budget of $300,000 for her sweet 16 party, so this daddy's girl can have anything her pink heart desires. Set in a vintage theatre, Amberly's party will entertain more than 800 invited guests. She and her father visit the venue to discuss the arrangements with the planner. During the planning process, Amberly's father fires two party planners because he's concerned they're not going to make it the perfect event he wants it to be. Next, Amberly has a fragrance designed just for her to be bottled as party favors, at a cost of more than $10,000. She tells the fragrance designer that she wants the bottle to be pink with glitter at the bottom. During a photo shoot with her fragrance, Amberly notes that her party will be the talk of the town and will make her a local celebrity. To find the perfect pink dress, Amberly's father takes her to Paris where he hires a local stylist to take her to the most exclusive stores in the fashion capital. But Amberly isn't impressed and keeps asking, "Where the American stores are,"' much to the disdain of her Parisian personal shopper. Her father fires the personal shopper and with the help of her father's friend who owns a Paris boutique, Amberly finally finds a dress she loves. One problem: it's red, not pink. But that's not an issue for her father, who asks the store to dye it pink and have it altered to Amberly's liking. The total cost is $7,000. To distribute invitations, Amberly holds a pre-party fashion show. The event serves an alternate purpose, demonstrating what Amberly believes her guests should wear to her real party. The day before her event, Amberly wakes up with a huge bump by her nose. As it's a blemish that has gotten bigger over a three-month period, Amberly's mother takes her to a skin care professional. The bump turns out to be a cyst, and luckily there is a treatment that should shrink it in time for the party. When the big day arrives, more than 900 guests wait two hours in the bitter cold to get into her birthday bash. Amberly arrives in a white stretch limousine wearing her personally picked perfect pink dress from Paris. She feels "like a total celebrity." Inside, Amberly stands center stage and introduces her signature perfume. The partygoers are excited when she announces that they'll all get one (can you say "Oprah moment?"). Later, Amberly re-emerges in shorts and surprises her guests with a hip-hop dance performance. Although her steps don't go as planned, she still has a good time. Amberly hopes that this party makes her a legend. As she rides away in the back of a white stretch limmo wearing a white dress, she turns to her father and says, "So for my seventeenth birthday...," before he interrupts to say with a laugh, "Uh-uh. No way!"
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E5Erin
Fly, flashy Los Angeles native Erin is not someone who has a problem speaking her mind. It's in her genes: her father is late rapper Eazy-E, a hip-hop pioneer co-founded infamous gangsta rap act N.W.A. with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. Pointing to a large poster in her room, Erin proudly shows the lips that she shares with her father. But, because he died in 1995, she has not shared a birthday with him since she turned four. A dozen years later, Erin is confident that her father would want her to have the greatest celebration ever, one more than worthy of My Super Sweet 16. Erin will host her bash at a $16 million mansion in Bel-Air, Calif. Taking a cue from another rapper, Diddy, Erin is planning an all-white party, and emphasizes this point to her friends. When one asks to wear a brown belt since they're friends, Erin makes her intentions clear, saying, "You ain't nobody special." That means everyone wears white! "This has got to be the bombest, flyest, freshest party ever," Erin says, discussing the event with friends. She wants people to talk about her bash forever. Setting an invitation theme of "message in a bottle," She expects hundreds of anxious people to be at the beach awaiting invites, but beach is bare. Luckily, her disappointment proves to be short-lived when a group of strangers are game to dive into the water to fetch her bottled invites. Erin is planning two birthday outfits with the help of her celebrity stylist, Jason. She wants to look like a superstar, but during the fitting, Erin insults Jason's sense of style referring to his dresses as "Easter Sunday" and "table cloth," and Erin's friends fall over laughing while she insults Jason's "grandma rag." "I have to be fly, Jason!" Erin yells. "This is my party!" And it's then that Erin starts to worry that she won't look good for her throwdown. During a trip to a car dealership, Erin sets her sites on a $51,000 car, which she says is cheaper than expected. Her mother laughs, questiojning Erin's definition of cheap and emphasizing that she only thinks it's cheap because she's not paying for it. But Erin has to have it and she hopes her mom gets it for her. Two days before the party, Jason and Erin go for a second round ... or second fitting, depending on how you see it. On the way to Erin's place, Jason complains that she's the "Sweet 16 girl from hell," and admits that he's scared of a little girl. Soon after he arrives Erin's insults begin again. She refers to Jason's dress choices as appropriate for "the strip club." Jason asks, "Can't we all just get along, Erin?" She answers in the third-person, saying, "Erin doesn't do that." Fortunately, Jason pulls out the perfect red dress and Erin is happy with her super fly look, and ultimately thanks Jason for a job well done. On the day of the party, hair and make-up artist Damien is an hour late. As he applies her make-up, Erin complains and complains, telling Damien that he doesn't know what he's doing. He refuses to fix her hair on her demand, especially after Erin calls him a "drama queen" and says he's "acting like a little b----." When an offended Damien packs up and leaves, Erin cries to her mother on the phone, saying that she won't go to the party without her hair fixed. At the mansion, an anxious crowd of partygoers arrive in white. Although Erin's not having a good day, she determined to have a good time. Her mood changes for the better after her grand entrance in a Lamborghini impresses everyone. Wearing a red dress in the crowd of white, Erin feels like a celebrity on the red carpet. Guests declare the party "off the chain like a loose dog." But Erin's fun doesn't last long. When she wants to change outfits, her stylist, Jason, is nowhere to be found. While the guests are outside enjoying themselves, Erin pouts indoors because she wants to wear her next outfit. Suddenly, Erin's mother bursts into the room yelling, "You're missing your whole party! She doesn't have shoes? What kind of s--- ... somebody give her a pair of f---ing shoes!" Erin wants to go home after her mother's tirade and she wonders what else can go wrong. Well, one more thing: the police can shut the party down two hours early. Erin's father had a song that would sum up her feelings nicely -- see track two on the N.W.A. album Straight Outta Compton -- but we digress. Her guests disappointed, Erin warns, "Whoever shut my party down is going down." But before it's completely over, Erin's mother makes sure her daughter's present is delivered before all of her friends leave. As everyone watches, the white Porsche Erin wanted drives up and her friends in white quickly turn green with envy. Despite the fact that party was shut down, the guests had a great time. Erin announces, "You ain't gotta go home, but you gotta get the hell outta here." Although many things went wrong for her, everyone in attendance was unaffected and thought it was the flyest party ever. And that leaves Erin satisfied as she rolls out in her new ride.
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E6Ariel
In Campbellsville, Kentucky, Ariel's peers consider her the "stuck-up, snobby rich kid." Ariel thinks they're just jealous. Ariel's father owns an oil company and has oil wells all over the country. While the talk of oil can spark a political debate, to Ariel, oil means shoes, cars and purses. And she has no problem getting anything she wants -- including a $1,235 necklace, and during a shopping with her dad, items from the Versace and Coach counters. Competitive by nature, Ariel wants to celebrate her 16th birthday with the biggest party anyone has ever seen. Her entry into My Super Sweet 16 will be a fairytale come to life. Ariel wants to confirm what everyone already knows: her life is totally awesome. Ariel wants to make a grand entrance, so she's going to arrive in her father's helicopter and can't wait to see the looks on her friends' faces when she does. The party will be held in the majestic setting of her family's 50-acre farm, where she wants a huge tent that looks like a castle. In keeping with the fairytale theme, Ariel tells her father that she wants a fairy Godmother and a fire spitter. "Where do you get these ideas, girl?" her father asks. Ariel's list of wants continues: a special antique carriage that Muhammad Ali rode in and a band like the All American Rejects. The band has to be big because people at school are talking and her party will be ruined if her dad gets a lame band. Only 150 people are invited to Ariel's exclusive party, so she and a couple of friends sit poolside and go through their yearbook to point out who's not invited. Ariel laughs at the fact that people have been begging to come to her party and says, "I could care less." When the time comes, Ariel, escorted by two knights, meets a small group of kids to reveal the names of the invited few on a scroll. The others are promptly told, "You're not invited." Ariel's pup will also make a grand entrance at the party, so he has to dress the part. At a pet clothing shop, the dog works the runway in a variety of outfits. The winning one is a tuxedo complete with a top hat that Ariel loves. The dog, on the other hand, looks a little confused. Later after cheerleading at a football game, Ariel asks Jacob, one of the players, to be her date for the party. Jacob readily accepts in front of Ariel's applauding peers and Ariel hopes for a kiss from Jacob at her party. On the big day, Ariel looks beautiful in a tiara and white dress. But while dressing at her mother's home, she fears that something will go wrong, like the tiara being too large for the helicopter. A fairy Godmother welcomes Ariel's guests and directs them into a carriage which takes them to the castle. For her guests, the experience is already "magical," and the party hasn't even begun. Ariel finally makes her grand entrance in a helicopter -- only no one sees her! With all of her guests already in the tent, they are unaware that the princess has arrived outside. After a call to her mother to round up the guests, Ariel makes a successful second grand entrance in a carriage with her sharply dressed dog. Everyone cheers as Jacob escorts Ariel from the carriage to the tent castle and the party officially begins. Ariel looks at the stage with great anticipation when her father summons everyone to the dance floor. She's mortified when she sees that the band is "old," and fears that no one's going to let her live it down. Ariel calls for a miracle. Suddenly, her guests head to the dance floor and have a good time dancing to the retro music. Outside of the tent, Ariel and her partygoers enjoy a professional fireworks display. Under the romantic fireworks-lit sky, Jacob asks Ariel to go out with him. She joyfully accepts, and they share a kiss. "It's a dream come true," Ariel says. Then, Ariel's father calls her over for a surprise. Out of the darkness of the night, two lights from yonder approach. What goes hither? Why, it's a BMW! Ariel jumps up and down, hugs and thanks her daddy. Her friends are all impressed that she has "the coolest car at school." Finally, Jacob and Ariel head off in a carriage while her parents watch, but not without a warning to Jacob from dad. "Have her in before midnight or you'll both turn into a pumpkin." And how does Ariel feel about the night? "It was the perfect fairytale."
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E7Katie
For her entire life, Katie has been pampered like the spoiled southern belle she is. She's never has to lift a finger. Katie has a "current" boyfriend, Josh, dance medals and pink hand bags in her closet. After saying, "I'm not a redneck," Katie shows "the deer room," which is full of deer heads that her father hunted and hung on the walls. Katie's housekeeper, Miss Rosie, styles Katie's hair before she goes on a shopping spree. In Los Angeles, Katie purchases an $8000 dress for her party from Les Habitudes, who've outfitted everyone from Halle Berry to Jennifer Lopez. Katie loves Christmas time so much that she's going to have a Christmas-themed bash. Because she already has everything she could ever possibly want, Katie asks her guests not to bring her gifts. Instead, they are to bring a new, unwrapped toy that she will donate to Toys for Tots. Without a toy, kids will not be allowed entrance to the party. Katie tells her party planner that she wants the party to be like a candyland with tons of Christmas trees, snow, candy canes, a snowman and more. Katie's determined to bring Christmas to Memphis. In the town square, Miss Katie Claus arrives dressed in a Santa suit. A huge crowd awaits Katie's arrival, then scream as their names are called. One girl looks to the sky and cries, "Thank you, Jesus." The experience to Katie was "Merri-licious." People expect Katie to have a big performer, so she goes to the studio to meet with Yung Joc. At his studio, she asks Yung Joc to perform, but his performances run $85,000 a show. Yung Joc challenges Katie to rap about her party. She not only raps well, but breaks down the 'walk it out' hip-hop dance. Yung Joc's impressed and agrees to perform at Katie's party. Katie's parents buy her a 6-door customized Hummer because it's really safe. She wants it bullet-proof because "We live in Memphis, Tennessee," she laughs. Katie's in love with the car but wants to customize it with pink washer fluid, a customized horn and chandeliers so that when her friends see it, it's pimped out. Stacked with two televisions and a mini-bar, it's the only 6-door Hummer, and it costs $125,000. Katie makes her boyfriend Josh compete in a bowling game to be her escort against a cute guy she likes, Michael. Although Michael loses in a series of contests against Josh, Katie selects him "because he's goofy and hilarious." After Katie picks Michael, Josh feels like a fool for coming out to the bowling alley. Katie says he'll have to get over it. On the day of her birthday, Katie's parents surprise her with a $100K watch from Jacob the Jeweler. She asks, "Is this water-proof? So take it off before I get in the shower?" On the day of her party, Katie and Michael arrive in a Christmas sleigh led by a horse. While the crowd screams her name, boyfriend Josh rolls his eyes. Later, Katie has a great time dancing with friends until Josh starts following her around. Katie claims that she needs space from him, but enjoys dancing with Michael while Josh frowns from a distance. Katie's father announces a special surprise - Yung Joc! Joc puts his diamond-laced necklace around her neck and performs. Katie's party guests are excited about Yung Joc's show, but Katie's also excited about the chain that he gave her -- until she's asked to return it back to him. The crowd rushes outside to see Katie's loaded Hummer. Everyone loves it. One kid says, "My dad would sell me for that car." Yung Joc hops in the Hummer with Katie, and asks, "You do got your license, right?" Katie looks at Yung from the driver's seat and says with her gentle, southern charm, "I sure don't," then drives away. Katie declares, "I brought Christmas to Memphis. It was the most amazing night of my life."
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E8Teyana
Teyana is a New Yorke singer, rapper and dancer from Harlem who has just been signed to artist/producer Pharrell Williams' (N.E.R.D.) record label. This Harlem skateboarder wants her 16th birthday bash to reflect her personality, so she's having an '80s old school skateboard sixteen-themed bash. While shopping, Teyana tells her mother that she wants a bracelet and earrings. The bracelet is $275,000, but Teyana gets anything she wants from her mom who Teyana says is "wrapped around my finger." Teyana's mother rents a full museum for her party, but Teyana dismisses it without giving it a chance. Her mother says, "Tell me what you want, and you know you're gonna get it." Teyana takes a moment and lists her wishes which include a "marching band, a skateboard ramp, graffiti artists and break dancers." Teyana challenges her mother to pull it off because if her party's not the party of the century, she's not havin' it. Being the unique girl that she is, Teyana hands out invitations in an ice cream truck. The lucky invited ones get boxes with Teyana's photo and skateboard chains. One invited guest says, "If you didn't get invited, it sucks to be you, you dig?" Looking dope at her party is important, so Teyana heads to Heatherette to see the dress that they made for her. Heatherette makes dresses for artists like Gwen Stefani, Paris Hilton and Pink. When designer Richie Rich shows Teyana her one-of-a-kind eccentric dress, she loves it and can't wait for her friends to see her in the "crazy dress." Teyana's shopping continues where she finds some colorful sneakers from Paris to go with her dress for just $700. "That's not bad," she says. But Teyana's mom stresses to her daughter, "You don't have no money!" They eye one another down like they are about to go to battle. Her mother finally gives in because as she says, "They are cute." Next, Teyana auditions dancers for her Sweet 16, but they have to have "hotness, fiyah." Fellow Sweet 16er from season 3, Darnell, acts as a guest judge with her. After selecting the hottest dancers, Teyana goes with her mom to shop for a BMX bike. That's right, not a car but a bike. She wants the bike custom-made with rims, but they can't have it done by Saturday. It usually takes a year to prepare it. Teyana pouts, worrying that if she doesn't get a bike after teling everybody that she would, people will see her as being "all talk." On her party day, Teyana wakes up early to see how her mom put everything together. She especially anticipates seeing the skateboard ramp, but she's quickly disappointed to see there's not one. The ramp would cost $2 million in insurance, her mom explains. Teyana complains that it's embarrassing because she won't have a "skateboard 16," but a "regular Sweet 16 like everybody else." That's exactly what she didn't want. Later that night, Teyana's '80s-styled guests wait anxiously to see what her arrival will be like. Teyana doesn't disappoint. The party starts with a marching band followed by hip-hop dancers and finally Teyanna. She's carried in inside of a giant doll box where she poses stiffly like a plastic doll. Once on the dance floor, Teyanna drops the dress and dances in shorts with backup dancers. The entrance, band and dancing are hot, but the best is yet to come. Next, recording artist/top producer Pharrell Williams shocks the audience with his arrival. He supports his Star Trek label artist Teyanna by introducing her onstage and calling the audience to make some noise for her birthday. Even special guest Sweet 16er Aaron from season 3 says, "This is way more creative than my birthday." After blowing out the candles on the craziest cake she's ever seen, Teyanna's mom presents her with the customized $10,000 low rider bike that she wanted. It was flown in overnight from LA. Bu-bu-but wait, there's more... Outside, Teyanna's presented with another pair of wheels -- a brand new white $100,000 Range Rover. Teyanna is in disbelief. She didn't expect that at all. A friend jokes, "Yo, T! We ain't on skateboards no more!" Teyanna hugs her guests, then rides off on her bike. She showed everyone a party they've never seen before and says, "I'm definitely the Queen of New York."
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E10Priscilla
Priscilla is having an over-the-top My Super Sweet 16 celebration that she hopes will be the talk of the town over her rival Nikki, who threw her own Sweet 16 bash two weeks earlier. Priscilla's taste is expensive, and she gets the brands that she wants, so her dream to have a huge Polynesian Luau-themed Sweet 16 complete with fire eaters and Polynesian dancers shouldn't be a problem. Priscilla revealed her party plans to Nikki, which she regrets because Nikki used a couple of her ideas -- including getting Pitbull to perform. Now Priscilla is determined to make sure that her party is better than Nikki's by having a top name act. Although Priscilla's personal party planner has designed events for Sylvester Stallone, Versace, and Madonna, getting a big performer seems to be a problem because all of the performers who are "way better than Pitbull" that Priscilla wants are not available. Flanked by two authentic Polynesian dancers in grass skirts and coconut bras, Priscilla goes door-to-door putting Leis on her invited guests with details about the party. The guests comment that Priscilla's party is going to be better than Nikki's. But what will Nikki say? Priscilla delivers an invite to Nikki's front door so that Nikki sees how great her party is first hand, but Nikki warns Priscilla that her party will be "hard to top." Priscilla lets Nikki know she's gonna "bring it." Oh, snap! The battle of the My Super Sweet 16s is on. Priscilla's party planner introduces her door hosts to thwart potential party crashers: drag queens! Each drag queen auditions at the amusement of Priscilla and friends, but she selects the one with the most personality and a big, red poofy wig. Next, Priscilla has her braces removed for the night of the party even though they must be put back on a week later. The price tag for this dental visit? Over $1,000. But she loves how her teeth look without braces, "I'm going to look freakin' hot at my party," she says. On the morning before her party, Priscilla 's parents surprise her with a bracelet, but it seems to not mean anything after they tell her that they don't have a performer yet. Priscilla's so upset with that news that she contemplates not going to her own Sweet 16. How can she compete with Nikki without a big name performer? On the morning of the party, Priscilla is bummed that she doesn't have a performer. It doesn't help that Nikki calls Priscilla and says, "Good luck tonight. You're gonna need it." The nerve! Outside of the party venue, a crowd awaits Priscilla's arrival. Nikki makes her way through the crowd and enters the party, anxious to see if Priscilla will mess up on her grand entrance. During her own Sweet 16 where she was carried in on a surf board, Nikki was almost dropped. But Priscilla's grand entrance goes off without a hitch. Following a fire dancer, Priscilla performs a sultry Tahitian dance. The crowd loves it. She looks pretty and her friends are surprised that she can dance that way. Priscilla feels that her entrance is better than Nikki's was. Next, the guest performer arrives on stage. Nikki asks, "Who's that?" It's rapper, Fat Joe. Priscilla's in tears from excitement, and Fat Joe performs his hit song, "Lean Back." The party guests love it. Fat Joe wishes Priscilla a happy birthday, and gives her a huge hug. Off stage, Priscilla and Nikki face off like they did at Nikki's party where Priscilla confronted her for stealing Pitbull. This time the face-off is friendly...or is it really? Nikki tells Priscilla that her party is "amazing," and that they both had parties that no one can top. The rivals hug, but Priscilla thinks her party was better and also suspects that Nikki may still feel that her's was better. Outside, Priscilla is given the keys to a brand new $100,000 silver SL 500 Mercedes hard-top convertible. She's amazed to be driving a car that's "more than a lot of peoples' houses." Even Nikki admits, "It's a lot more expensive than mine." Afterward there's talk about whose party was better. Priscilla's friends ask, "Who's Nikki?," but Nikki's friends let her know that they liked her party better. What matters is that Priscilla got the party of her dreams. After thanking her parents, Priscilla drives away in her Mercedes and declares, "Nikki might have won the first battle, but I definitely won the war."
My Super Sweet 16S4 • E12Rachel
This Latino/Jewish prepster is an only child who's used to getting everything she wants. And what she wants right now is a party worthy of My Super Sweet 16. Her theme is a Winter Wonderland, because she loves the snow. And as there's no budget for Rachel's bash, the sky is the limit. Early on, we see Rachel stopping by the venue for her party. She intends to bring winter to Charlotte, North Carolina, with a money machine, ice bar, ice sculptures and dancers. Rachel's close family helps her make plans. But while Rachel and friends audition dancers, her dad objects to the guys who strip off their shirts. In her backyard with a few friends, Rachel estimates about 200 people will be at her party. Everyone's expecting the biggest party in Charlotte, so her reputation's on the line. When one friend asks if R&B singer Chris Brown is coming, Rachel says no. "My dad wants [hip-hop duo] the Ying Yang Twins," she explains. "He really likes them.? Next, Rachel discusses her plans with her party planner and parents. But while the adults discuss her elaborate entrance in a Jaguar, Rachel emphasizes that her greatest concern is having a guest performer. No one seems to care as much as she does about a guest performer. Her dad jokes, "I'll see if Paris Hilton is available." But Rachel's not going to be laughing if her father doesn't get a hot performer. When it's time to hand out invites, Rachel rides in a horse-drawn carriage to give each kid a block of ice. To get the details, they have to break the ice. It's quickly becomes a super smash-fest when Rachel's invited guests hold their ice blocks high, then crash them onto the ground to access the invitations inside. To get a unique dress that no one has in Charlotte, Rachel flies to New York. After her dad tells her that one dress makes her look, "big in the butt," she begins to fear that she won't find the right dress. However, at a shop named Adriennes, Rachel finds the ideal dress. But that's just the beginning. Rachel continues to select more dresses as her father complains of indigestion. In the end, this daddy's girl gets the custom made "ice princess dresses" that she wants for more than $3,000. Back home, Rachel shops at a Lexus dealership with her parents. She wants something sporty, but her dad wants her to think of something more like a family-styled sedan. But Rachel wants a ride that'll make heads turn, so she selects a "perfect Rachel Sweet 16 car" with a voice-command map system. When dad objects to the cost, she warns, "My dad better swipe that credit card." And what about a performer for the party? It's not happening. At the last minute, Rachel and her father make calls to find dancers to do a routine with her at the party to entertain guests. Rachel wants a Latin dancer, while her father requests a "white person with unusually good rhythm. We need an aspiring John Travolta." Rachel looks at him, confused. "I want a Latin dancer." Her dad comes through, but she insists that he has to be good-looking or she won't dance with him in front of everybody. When three guys arrive to dance with Rachel, her father takes charge and shows the guys how to dance ... much to Rachel's embarrassment. In the end, all three are hired to dance with her at the bash. On the morning of Rachel's birthday, her parents celebrate with a wake-up greeting. While getting a makeover, Rachel's dad shows off his made over look for the party. Rachel worries, "My dad better not do anything to embarrass me." He brags, "I'm a stud." On the way to the party, Rachel's so nervous that her stomach hurts. But when she arrives, she's excited to see hundreds of anxious guests dressed in white, chanting her name. She's escorted in by her date, and she's sparkling with $100k worth of diamonds. "I feel like the most important person on this planet," she says. Inside, there are ice sculptures everywhere. Guests love it and say it feels that they're inside of an "ice club" or "a blizzard." The fun elevates to a new level when Rachel reveals a Daddy's Money machine filled with thousands of dollars. Guests have 10 seconds each to grab as much money as they can and afterward it looks like a rap video when the kids in white hold up stacks of cash to the camera. The big moment finally arrives. Rachel's guests are called to gather around the floor to watch her dance. Everyone loves her performance. When they are told to clear the dance floor, the crowd expects a famous performer. Instead, two dancers perform a somber ballet routine. The young, hip crowd is not into that at all and Rachel is embarrassed that her father booked the ballet duo. Unsurprisingly, she cuts their act early. Rachel feels that her party is ruined until everyone is told to go to the terrace to see Rachel's new car. They are very impressed when they look down and see Rachel's brand new Lexus. At the end of the night, a $15,000 fireworks display spells Rachel's name out in icy blue letters. Despite her dad's zany ideas, Rachel is happy that her party exceeded expectations. She thanks her parents and is driven away with her date. Her winter wonderland was as "cool as ice."

With bullhorn in hand, Audrey calls out individual names and hands them each a pair of sunglasses inscribed with an invitation. As she gives out the last few pair of sunglasses, there's still a bunch of people begging for a chance to attend her festivities. But they're out of luck. When Audrey tries on her custom-made dresses, she isn't happy. Even though they're a size 0, she thinks they make her look fat.

As a surprise, Audrey's mom shows up at her school on her birthday with the Lexus Audrey wanted so badly!

My Super Sweet 16S5 • E4CHRIS BROWN
It's not every day that a teenager gets to throw the sickest birthday bash anyone has ever seen. And this certainly isn't your ordinary, everyday My Super Sweet 16 party; this is Chris Brown's super 18! Yes, the hot, young R&B star plans on celebrating his birthday in true rock star style, and it's going to be poppin'! But Chris isn't satisfied with having just one party, he wants two! He wants a private party so he can hang out with his friends and he wants a party that'll be just for his fans. And what Chris Brown wants, Chris Brown gets. Chris heads to the 40/40 Club in New York City to make preparations for his private party, which will sport a theme that recalls Michael Jackson's 1979 breakthrough solo album, Off the Wall. He meets with his party planner to discuss the big event and tours the lavish club to make sure it fulfills all his expectations. To his delight, the club is better than he expected. At the 40/40, Chris can really do it big! When Chris sets out to find an appropriate place to hold a party for his fans, he's in for a surprise. When he finds out that club Avalon was once a church, he's not sure if he's feeling it. But the club is the only place where teenagers can party, so he decides to check it out anyway. Once inside, he is blown away. The club is definitely the place to be! Now it's time for Chris Brown to purchase a new ride -- an electric blue Lamborghini! He wants it all pimped out, with rad rims and all the fixings. Chris knows that once his friends get a glimpse of his "Ghini," they'll all be amazed. But because of all the customization that needs to be done, Chris' ride might not be ready before the party. Yikes! Chris knows how important it is to be rolling in style on his big night! Chris heads back to his hotel, where his jeweler pops in bearing iced out watches, bracelets and chains -- everything you can imagine! There's some serious bling for Chris to rock at his party, but it comes with a hefty price tag of $250,000. But Chris says it's worth it because you can never have enough bling on your birthday! Next, Chris visits the studio where the dancers and drill team are rehearsing for his party. He checks out their moves and discusses how he wants to make his grand entrance. To the dismay of the dancers, Chris says he won't be busting a move on his big night. He wants them to show off their skills while he struts his stuff in between them. In search of some fresh gear to wear to his poppin' party, Chris hits the Rocawear store. Once he picks out some hot clothes, it's time to rock out! Chris heads to Avalon for the first party that's dedicated to his fans. As Chris emerges, he is greeted by tons of screaming fans! And they're not disappointed, as Chris them a big surprise: Lil Mama performs her hit song, "Lip Gloss." After partying with his fans, it's time for his private party at the 40/40 Club. But when Chris arrives, he's disappointed that there aren't a lot of people waiting outside to witness his grand entrance. He says he's not getting out of the car until there's a crowd, so everyone inside is told to come back out. When the sidewalk is full of people, the drill team skillfully does their thing, the dancers blow the crowd away and -- just like he had hoped -- Chris Brown emerges in style. After dancing and hanging out inside the club with his friends, Chris gets a phone call from Michael Jackson's assistant. Apparently, Michael wants to personally wish Chris a happy birthday! As exemplified by his Off the Wall-themed party, Chris is the ultimate Michael Jackson fan, but, unfortunately, the call gets dropped before Michael gets on the line. Although Chris didn't get to speak to Michael personally, knowing he almost did is a big enough gift for Chris on his super 18! Little does Chris know there's yet another surprise in store for him. He is instructed to go outside, where the customized Lamborghini is tricked out just like he wanted! His friends adore his hot new ride and are, of course, totally jealous. Chris hops in the car, loving the way it looks inside and out. Everything went down just as he planned, and he definitely partied like a rock star. Happy super 18, Chris Brown!

My Super Sweet 16S5 • E8ALEXANDRIA ANDREWS
Alexandria is your typical My Super Sweet 16er -- she's confident, fashionable and ? rich! Allie, as she likes to be called, knows exactly what she wants, and it's either her way or the highway. And this year, she wants to show her hometown of Sacramento, Calif., what she's all about by throwing the biggest, sickest My Super Sweet 16 the city has ever seen! They don't call her "the rich girl" at school for nothing! To ensure that she has the most heavenly time ever, Allie chooses "Heaven Only Knows" as the theme for her My Super Sweet 16 party, and everyone must come clad in white or they're not allowed in! An aspiring model, Allie hires designer Monte Cristo to coordinate a fashion show for her party so she can strut her stuff onstage in a bathing suit featuring huge angel wings. Before she gets to work the runway, Allie hosts a private, exclusive pre-party at her pool to hand out her invitations. She assumes that she's going to be fighting people off left and right but, at first, the pre-party is a flop and only a few guests show up. Eventually, more and more of her friends arrive, but it's still not the turnout she expected. When she realizes that her guests are just sitting around looking bored, Allie announces that everyone must get up and dance or they won't get their invites! Immediately, her friends dance up a storm in order to receive their personalized invitations. Now things are really jumpin'. Next up on Allie's To Do list: Finding the hottest models for her fashion show. Allie and Monte Cristo hold auditions for the 10 hottest (and luckiest) girls in Sacramento to show off their sexy runway skills. In Allie's words, they have to be able to "rip the runway" to be worthy of appearing at her party. In the end, Allie decides she only likes nine of the contestants, leaving the last spot open for -- surprise, surprise -- herself. Allie knows she has to look her best at her My Super Sweet 16, which for her means looking hyphy by showing off a hot new grill. So Allie and her brother head over to check out her options and she selects the perfect one -- a pink and white diamond frame worth $4,500! After getting fitted for her new grill, Allie is confident she will have the most iced out grin in all of Sacramento. Now that her grill and fashion show are taken care of, the only thing left for Allie to do is find the perfect performer. Allie brazenly goes to the recording studio to ask hyphy rapper Clyde Carson to perform at her party. He agrees, and Allie is excited that everything is going her way. On the eve of the big day, though, Allie realizes that her grill doesn't fit. Allie flips out, claiming if she can't wear her grill, her party will be ruined! The next day, Allie and her brother rush to the store to fix the problem, and she arrives back home with a big, sparkling smile on her face that flaunts her newly fitted grill. When she finally arrives at her party, she is less than thrilled with her grand entrance but quickly forgets about it once she's inside and everyone's having a good time. Just when things seem to be flowing smoothly, Allie stresses that her party isn't running on schedule. She blames Monte Cristo for the holdup with her fashion show, but once she and the rest of the models begin to strut their stuff onstage, the crowd goes wild. In the end, Allie is happy that Monte delivered a hit show! Then, all of a sudden, the venue's lights and audio are unexpectedly turned off, signaling an early end to the party. Confused and frustrated, Allie and the rest of the crowd head outside to see what's up. Just then, a brand-new Cadillac rolls around the corner and Allie forgets all her worries. What a birthday gift! Loving her new ride, Allie starts to drive away just in time to see her friends continuing the party in the street. Upset that the party ended too soon, her friends take it upon themselves to dance on cars and hold up traffic until the cops come to break things up! Her dream bash may not have ended the way she had hoped, but Allie's My Super Sweet 16 is definitely one for the books.

Although Savannah's parents want to give their daughter everything she's ever dreamed of, Savannah's fearful that her mother will steal the spotlight during her My Super Sweet 16 party. Her mother, who dresses to the nines, always seems to want to one-up the birthday girl, whether it comes to hair, makeup or clothes. But Savannah hopes that her mother realizes that on the big night, it's going to be Savannah's time to shine. Once the party planning is underway, it's time to hand out the invitations, so Savannah hops on a boat and sails to a beach where her friends are waiting. When she arrives, two hunky helpers carry her onto the sand, where she blows a whistle and makes her friends scramble for invitations that come complete with their very own pic of Savannah. Once everyone has an invite, her friends bow down before her. Oh, Savannah, you are truly a jungle queen! Now that the invitations are taken care of, Savannah must figure out what she's going to wear. After a stylist rolls into her home with a full rack of high-end dresses for her to choose from, Savannah decides that one dress won't do ? she needs two! After trying on some stunning styles, Savannah gushes over an $8,000 Escada gown for her grand entrance, but her mother says she doesn't want to spend that much money. So Savannah keeps looking, finding another perfect fit. After lecturing Savannah about spending too much money, Savannah's mother dramatically storms out of the room. Just as Savannah's about to panic, her mother struts back into the room ? wearing the Escada dress! Feeling sexy in the new threads, she says the only way she'll splurge on two dresses is if one's for her and the other's for the birthday girl. Once again, Savannah is fearful that her mother will steal the spotlight during her Super Sweet 16. But, ultimately, Savannah decides she must accept the offer. Now the only thing left to do is find some exotic animals to make Savannah's poppin' party complete. While checking out adorable tigers, monkeys and other cute creatures, it's hard for Savannah to say no. But when she spots a puma, she really begins to coo. Having a puma present will surely put her party over the top. Like any Super Sweet 16er, Savannah is hoping to get a new car for her birthday. But she doesn't want just any car; she wants a Mustang, even though her mom thinks a BMW is a better fit. Out shopping with her father, Savannah looks at 'Stangs and loves them all. Then, to appease her mom, Savannah reluctantly heads over to the BMW dealership, where she falls madly in love with a $48,000 convertible. She hates to admit it, but her mom was right! When the big day arrives, the stylists primp Savannah as the clock ticks. Just 10 minutes before she's supposed to leave, Savannah stresses about the fact that $300,000 worth of jewelry hasn't arrived. While she's freaking out about being late to her own party, the doorbell rings. The jewelry is finally there, and Savannah gleams with delight. Surely, diamonds are this girl's best friend. Lights, camera, Savannah! Over at the My Super Sweet 16 party, a huge crowd is awaiting Savannah's grand entrance. After being shielded by an entourage on the red carpet, Savannah pops out onstage in front of all her guests. From there on out, the night is a culmination of wild teenagers, exotic animals and heavy beats. But when Savannah realizes that some kids crashed her party with fake invitations, she's horrified. To get things under control, Savannah calls security and has the party crashers tossed out. The rest of the night is smooth sailing. When Savannah's parents direct everyone's attention outside, Savannah knows it's time for her big gift. Yup, it's the BMW she fell in love with at the dealership. Savannah, the ultimate jungle queen, jumps in her new ride and takes her friends out for a cruise ? on the wrong side of the road! But, hey, your head would be spinning, too, if you just had the best My Super Sweet 16 party ever!
My Super Sweet 16S5 • E11Bre
Bre Roca's star is on the rise -- at 15, she's the youngest rapper to ever be signed to Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records label and she stars in the Nickelodeon show Star Camp. Living large, with an even larger daily agenda of rehearsals, she has virtually no time for her friends. That's why she's putting everything on hold in order to throw the biggest rock star-themed My Super Sweet 16 that Los Angeles has ever seen. It's time for Bre to party like a rock star! Bre starts things off right by selecting her site, which must be perfect. Hoping to show off her rhyming skills, Bre wrote a song that she wants to perform in front of all her guests. Not letting anything compromise her vision, she says she needs a full stage with tons of lights and backup dancers. But to throw the ultimate concert, she needs the ultimate guest star. And Bre knows exactly who to hit up: Hurricane Chris! So she heads to a radio station to ask Chris on the air if he'll perform at her party and he gladly accepts. Then the two rappers start a freestyle battle, and, even though she's a newbie, Bre spits some rhymes that blow Chris' mind. In the car with her father, Bre tells him what she wants for her birthday. A dollhouse? A pony? Get real! It?s Bre?s Super Sweet 16, and she wants a fully-equipped Range Rover! The model she wants is totally tricked out and costs close to $90,000, which her dad isn't too thrilled about. After giving up on begging her father for a new car, Bre calls a friend to help her deliver her party invitations. Almost instantly Nick Cannon hops out of a white Rolls Royce and knocks on her door -- he's the perfect partner in crime. Bre and Nick head off to the Hard Rock to hand out the VIP invitations, which are for her closest friends. When she comes face-to-face with her friends, she informs them that they will have an all-access pass to her party and hands out goodie bags. The guests go wild when they see what's in the bags -- new cell phones, which come complete with a personalized video invitation to Bre's My Super Sweet 16 party. With the VIP invitations all gone, Bre tells all her other friends to meet her at the beach. But she gets stuck in mad crazy traffic, leaving them freezing by the water! After waiting for more than an hour, Bre finally pulls up and whips out her bullhorn, calling people's names one by one to come pick up their Golden Ticket. The invitations inform them to not only party like rock stars, but dress like ones, too. If they don't dress up, they don't get in. Next, Bre focuses on her grand entrance to the party. She wants to roll deep in a pimped out low rider with the hottest guy she can find by her side. So she auditions some stylish fellas, looking for "the one." When a handsome young man named Brandon puts the moves on Bre, she checks ?finding a boy? off her list of things to do! Now all she needs is the perfect outfit, and it just so happens that her custom-made dress just arrived from Canada. As the poppin' purple and black '80s-style dress is unpacked, Bre can't believe her eyes -- it's exactly how she pictured it! But she's quickly brought back down to earth when she's informed that her mother went out of town without approving the lighting for the stage, leaving Bre in the dark when it comes to her performance. The morning of her party, Bre is super-nervous about her Super Sweet 16. With no lights and possibly no concert, she doesn?t even want to get out of bed. But when her phone rings, the news on the other end is good. The problem with the lights has been fixed and Bre is back in the game! With the minutes ticking down till it's time for her big show, Bre puts on her makeup and teases her hair. Then she hops in the low rider with her dream boy Brandon and heads off to the party escorted by a bunch of bikers. After Bre makes her grand entrance, the party starts and the guests tear up the dance floor. Everything seems to be perfect until the party takes a turn for the worse. Bre, onstage and eager to perform, checks the microphone. She checks it again ?and again. It?s not working! How's she supposed to show off her mad mic skills? Some heated words are thrown back and forth between Bre and the soundman, turning her sweet 16 sour. Finally, the mic is turned on and Bre is off and running. The crowd goes wild as the birthday girl takes the stage. After her performance, as the applause dies down, Bre's father places a set of keys in her hands. Unsure what they?re for, she heads outside with the crowd following in her footsteps. In the parking lot she finds -- surprise, surprise -- a shiny new Range Rover! Climbing behind the wheel, Bre knows she definitely partied like a true rock star during her Super Sweet 16.
My Super Sweet 16S5 • E10Finale STEPHANIE
After MTV held a contest to find the Next Super Sweet 16er, viewers voted and chose Stefanie, a typical teen from Lindenhurst, N.Y., who loves hanging out with her friends and taking tons of photographs. But what isn't typical about Stefanie is that she was recently diagnosed with cancer. The news changed her life and turned her world upside down. But why should that stop her from having the My Super Sweet 16 party she always dreamed of? Before she was diagnosed with cancer, Stefanie always envisioned having the perfect sweet 16 party. Now, with everything she's gone through, including chemotherapy, Stefanie is afraid her Super Sweet 16 might be overshadowed by sickness and worry. Despite Stefanie's fears, her mother entered her into the Next Super Sweet 16er contest, and winning it was the first good thing that happened to Stefanie all year. So, with the help of MTV and some My Super Sweet 16 all-stars, Stefanie is forging ahead with her party plans. Stefanie's rockin' Super Sweet 16 party is guaranteed to put the rest to shame! To get the ball rolling, Sophie, one of the My Super Sweet 16 all-stars, takes Stefanie to meet the party planners. But these are no regular event planners; they have done huge celebrations for the likes of Kimora Lee Simmons and guests Diddy, Usher and Avril Lavigne. The birthday girl is encouraged to think big when it comes to her party, so she chooses a "Party Like a Rock Star" theme at New York City's Roseland Ballroom. Having given it some thought, Stefanie even sketched her own birthday cake featuring a guitar smashing through a snare drum. With the party planners on board with her ideas, it looks like her dreams are about to come true! Now that the planning is underway, people have to know what's up! And the invitations set the whole tone for the party. So Stefanie meets Darnell, another My Super Sweet 16 all-star, who is going to help her make personalized invitations -- her very own compilation CD filled with her favorite songs! In the recording studio, Stefanie gets a bit of stage fright while recording her personalized message that will appear on each invitation. But Darnell talks her through it and pushes her to make it perfect. Finally, after dozens of tries, they get the right take and Stefanie's invitations are ready to go. Pretty rad! Now that the invites are taken care of, it's time for Stefanie to get fitted for her dress by none other than Richie Rich and Traver Rains from Heatherette! These two designers have created kick-ass outfits for tons of celebrities, including Kelly Osbourne and My Super Sweet 16er Teyana, and now it's time for them to go to work on Stefanie to make sure she's the center of attention at the big event. When it's time to hand out the invitations, the all-star team shows up in a tour bus that has Stefanie's name and face all over it. Looks like Stefanie's mode of transportation has arrived! But that's not all ? inside the bus is Buddy Nielsen, the lead singer of Senses Fail! Stefanie is speechless when she finds out he's going to help her hand out the invites. When Stefanie pulls up in front of her school in her tour bus, there are tons of kids outside who are hoping to get an invitation. With Buddy by her side, she passes out her personalized CDs. As her friends step up one by one to pick up their coveted party invitations, Buddy and Stefanie autograph each CD. That's a keeper! When the big day arrives, Stefanie is professionally primped and looks absolutely stunning in her custom-made Heatherette dress. As her guests arrive at Roseland Ballroom, there's a red carpet and plenty of paparazzi waiting to make them feel like superstars. Inside, her friends start glamming it up with free makeovers and henna tattoos and rockin' out on the video game Rock Band. With TRL's Damien Fahey hosting and celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson spinning some tunes, it's a killer pre-show. The My Super Sweet 16 party gets even better when the birthday girl makes her grand entrance by being elevated onto the stage while smoke and streamers fly into the air. The crowd erupts in applause, not knowing that soon an entourage of celebrities will appear. It's all a huge surprise to Stefanie, too, as she has no idea who's appearing at her big bash. When one of Stefanie's favorite bands, The Sleeping, bum-rushes the stage, she can't believe her eyes. And little does she know that this is only the beginning! The Used, another favorite, sends her a video message informing her that they're gifting her with two backstage passes to their upcoming concert! Then, the biggest surprise of all -- a mysterious yet familiar voice is heard over the speakers singing "Happy Birthday." As a huge cake appears, My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way pops out and the band kicks into their breakthrough song "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)." The crowd goes crazy as My Chemical Romance performs a sizzling surprise show. It's a dream come true for Stefanie. After My Chemical Romance finishes their set and everyone starts to calm down, MTV has even more surprises in store for Stefanie. On her behalf, MTV is donating $10,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation made out in her name and she receives an iPhone and a Canon professional camera. To top it all off, My Chemical Romance wheels out her kick-ass custom-designed birthday cake and sings "Happy Birthday" to her again. That's really the icing on the cake! From the surprise celebrity guests to the super-special gifts, Stefanie got more than she could have ever imagined. This Next My Super Sweet 16er contest winner totally partied like a rock star and had a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
