MIOBI is happening Monday
night, May 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family. Will you be
tuning in? It might be ending, but we’ll never forget all the amazing
characters and storylines this show has had, particularly with this past
series finale of
a cute, new boy for Pay. Lauren started to be less Lauren-y, but then she found
out she happens to have a serious heart condition. The sweet Kaylie is finally
in a good relationship. Plus, she said, “I love you,” for the first time! KP
turned herself around, became nicer and stood up to her awful mother.
all that, there are some additional things we’ll really gonna miss, like…
life of a gymnast through its characters
week, MIOBI viewers got to pretend
they were gymnasts themselves by getting a peak into that crazy, but awesome,
world. Watching this show made gold medals seem not that absurd. Dreams seemed
a bit more accessible. Life seemed a bit more cheery. Sigh. We’ll miss those
Lauren Tanner slowly become a real human being
we first met Lauren, she was a rude, backstabbing girl. Who are we kidding, she
was like that all the way up through the beginning of season three! Maybe it
took her a while to get her stuff together, but her newfound friendship with
Payson this season helped her to put everything into perspective. We’ll sure
miss watching Lauren transform into the kind, good friend we all knew she had
the potential to be.
The ups and
downs of the relationship between the three besties
you train together as much as Kaylee, Lauren and Payson have, there are bound
to be hurdles along the way to the Olympics! Each girl wants to be the best.
Each girl wants the best guy. Each girl wants the most attention. But when it
comes down to it, each girl wants their best friends. That’s why, no matter
what has come between them (see: boyfriend-stealing, blackmailing,
name-calling, gold-metal competing, letter-stealing, sabotaging), they will come
out the other end as buds. We’ll miss watching them grow, both personally and
as an unbreakable trio.
All the crazy
boy troubles the ex-Rock girls inevitably go through
Rock gymnasts, they weren’t allowed to date. But that obviously didn’t stop
them! Kaylee dated Carter, who broke her heart when he started sneaking around
with Lauren. Emily had a flirty thing with Razor, but then ended up with Damon
in this forever love thing, which started coming to an end when Damon started
hangin’ with Kaylee and she started to like him and he started liking her. But
then Emily got preggerz, so Damon and she had to deal with that! Payson always
said she’d steer clear of boys and keep her eyes on the gold-medal prize, but
then she hurts her back and has to go to a normal high school where she meets
Ike. They hang out for a bit, but then it’s back to the Rock for her! So much
boy drama and we don’t want it to end!
The mean girl
drama: Lauren, KP, Jordan, and fake-sweet Wendy
can’t have a show without a classic mean girl. Lauren was always mean, but all
she ever wanted was to be loved by her mom, or a mother figure. KP was rude to
everyone because she blindly followed what her extremely rude mother told her
to do, until she caught the nice-bug and kicked her mom to the curb. Jordan
always says she isn’t at the gym to make friends so she’s a snob to everyone
there. And Wendy? Wendy is one of those characters you always have to watch out for. She is too bubbly, sweet and
seemingly naïve. In actuality though, she is the most conniving, sneaky
character of the bunch. Sure, we don’t want these sorta girls in our own lives,
but we can’t get enough of watching them play out on the screen.
sure to tune in to Make It Or Break It’s
series finale this Monday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT to find out which girls will be
going to the Olympics they have been training for their whole lives.
are you going to miss most about MIOBI?
