Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this reality show follows the competitive, brutally athletic season of top college cheerleaders. The content is generally problem-free, with much of the focus on the team's actual athleticism rather than their personal issues. Some episodes feature cheerleaders crying or getting emotional when they're disappointed (being cut from the team, etc.). Many episodes contain brief discussions about flirting, dating, or being attracted to someone -- this is college, after all. Women are required to wear red lipstick, makeup, and bows in their hair during cheerleading camp and at other times -- a practice/tradition that goes unquestioned.

Sexual Content

Discussion about attractiveness of men and women; some flirting and talk of dating and relationships, without much detail.

Violence

Some stunts are dangerous, and there's always the threat of an injury.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Overall, this is a positive show about people doing something they're interested in, passionate about, and have put a lot of hard work into. The series also attempts to break down stereotypes about cheerleading; that said, the sport has some inherent sexism, which is alluded to by the requirement that the women wear certain makeup and accessories while performing their sport. The group of featured athletes isn't particularly diverse.

Consumerism
