If Thomas wins, he can stay at Spectra and sign the contract and remain married to Gaby or if he loses, he will go to college and the marriage will be annulled. To make it a fair competition, it will be a teen line, bringing the sales price down to those who would be able to buy it, and they will be able to determine the sales profits from that point. Thomas is egged on by Spectra and Gaby who think that he will be able to handle it, so he agrees. Later, Thomas has doubts but Gaby tells him that he can do anything. He begins to wonder.
