Danny has sold 25 pies, while Jessica had sold ten. Jessica challenges Danny on a pie tasting contest. The reporter looks for a random person,and Annie steps up for the challenge. Then Marcus shows up saying that the person should be blindfolded to taste them. Annie is blindfolded and tastes both pies choosing Jessica's and the customers come over to buy her pies. After mistakenly tasting Jessica's pies, Annie tells Danny she had an idea. Later, Annie returns to tell the reporter that Jessica's pies caused her to have hair stickingupitis.
