Ted is worried that the annual Little Dumpling Pageant will cause a dip in baby love levels after the last year's winner Jarreau McIntosh had his fame go to his head, making him a spoilt baby. Ted enlists Jimbo to enter the competition and win it. However Jimbo is a fan of Jarreau and becomes his bodyguard. Ted pushes Staci to enter the competition instead and she eliminates the opponents one by one. Meanwhile Tim tries to get the crown from Jarreau but is stopped by Jimbo. He learns that his own victory years ago was a lie told by his parents to make him feel like winner. Jarreau gives up the crown to go back to being a drummer instead. Staci wins but she turns around and crowns the crying runner-up baby. The other babies join them on stage and pass the crown around; this restores the dipping baby love levels. The parents and the host Marsha terminate the show seeing a contest based on cute looks is vain. Ted commends Staci on the change of her heart, but Staci dismisses him saying that she was merely getting the vain contest cancelled; she prefers contests that compete on talent.
