  • Jessalynn removed JoJo's headshot from the pyramid for Abby placing her lower than the minis. Because of this and the argument that ensued, Abby decided that from here on out, there will be two pyramids.
  • The elite team girls were originally supposed to be portraying elders in their group dance and were going to use walking frames as props. However, this idea was scratched and the girls ended up choreographing their routine in the hotel the day before the competition.
