The episode begins with Ally who wants to do a charity by selling cupcakes, but Austin and Dez eat them all. In order for them to make up the money, Ally has an idea: to auction a date to spend with Austin along with a bunch of other Austin Moon merchandise.

At the auction, Brooke is there, and in the beginning, has the highest bid for the date with Austin. That is, until a beautiful girl named Chelsea bids higher, so she wins instead. This makes Ally get jealous, so she attempts to spy on the date they go on, having Dez with her to ensure that she doesn't come off as suspicious.


During the date, Chelsea and Austin are dancing, talking, and laughing while Ally and Dez are dancing (doing the salsa, specifically). Ally is extremely jealous and keeps trying to dance closer to them. To really get Austin’s attention, Dez does a dance move with Ally where he throws up into the air, and then she falls right on top of Chelsea. Austin asks if she’s okay and Ally says that she's fine, but he was really referring to Chelsea who is also fine. At the end of the night, Ally only hopes that maybe they won't go on a second date.


At what Ally assumes to be on a second date, Chelsea and Austin are at Chelsea’s little sister’s birthday party dressed up as a princess and a prince. After, once again letting jealousy get to her, Ally starts running towards them. But it stops when Brooke is furious and both combine a disaster, destroying the table of food. Heidi, Chelsea's sister, says her party is ruined. Though everything eventually gets sorted out. Ally apologizes to Heidi, realizes that the party is not a second date, and admits to Austin that she was jealous of Chelsea. However, Austin tells her that he would have been jealous too if the roles were switched, and the two realize that if they're not going to be together, then it's simply a matter of time

before one of them meets someone else. They only want the other to be happy.

In order to make it up to a sad Heidi, Austin decides to sing an acoustic version of Upside Down to which everyone, of course, enjoys.

At the end of the episode, Austin and Ally and Trish and Dez are shown to be dancing with each other back at Shredder's Beach Club.
