Burbank, CA (May 19, 2011) - Secrets, lies and jealousy threaten Team USA's gold medal dreams in the explosive two-hour season finale of ABC Family's original series, "Make It or Break It," premiering Monday, May 23rd (9:00 - 11:00 PM ET/PT).
The World's competition in Rio de Janeiro is fast approaching, yet the team is preoccupied by everything but gymnastics: Lauren fights for Max's attention while simultaneously trying to keep her involvement in Sasha's resignation a secret; Payson finds the perfect solution to her family's financial problems, with potentially costly consequences; and Kelly must choose between pleasing her mother and being a loyal teammate. Even Sasha is distracted by his feelings for Summer and news of her impending wedding. Through it all, team captain Kaylie tries to keep the peace among her teammates while growing increasingly uncomfortable with lying to the public about her anorexia
-- not only is keeping such a huge secret hurting her recovery, but it's also affecting her gymnastics.
When the team arrives in Rio, things go from bad to worse when the girls crumble under the seemingly insurmountable pressure. As the pettiness and in-fighting grow out-of-control, will Coach Belov be able to convince his team to believe in themselves and each other before it's too late, or will the girls have to kiss their medal aspirations goodbye?

Sakmar and Kerry Lenhart are consulting producers, with supervising producers Michael Gans and Richard Register and producer Maria Melograne.
