The girls realize their behavior outside of Valley Ranch is a major factor in determining whether they will make the team when Kelli holds a social networking seminar. Kelli reprimands a few girls who are posting inappropriate photos and information and reliving a past mistake by a veteran that put the DCC in unfavorable national headlines. DCC cameo photos are on the schedule, and the rookie candidates are jazzed to wear the iconic star spangled uniform and pose for the camera. For Kelli and Judy, this is an important process necessary to determine which girls have the DCC look. They discover some of them just might not be the total package.
