Burbank, CA (January 13, 2010) � As The Rock gets ready for the annual Open House, Payson struggles through her first days of high school in "Are We Having Fun Yet?," an all-new episode of "Make It or Break It" premiering on ABC Family Monday, January 25 (9:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT).
Payson's life gets a little bit harder when she's forced to become a regular teenager and go to high school. After being home schooled for the majority of her life and being used to order and structure, public school is a shock to the system for Payson. With the chaos surrounding her at school, she feels more like a loser than ever when she finds herself the new target of the school's queen bee. Things only get worse when Kaylie, Emily and Lauren show up to see how things are going. But when Payson meets fellow loner Ike, things start to look up. Is there possibly a way that she could survive the emotional roller coaster of high school?
Meanwhile, Sasha challenges the gym to make the annual Open House fun. When he pairs Kaylie and Nicky for a special performance, the event becomes anything but fun for the two champs.
