You can't compete with a junior college for more than 3 years.
I can't fault anyone of them for trying to strike while the iron is hot; clearly he's excited to go on Ellen. I do think it'll make any form of Season 2 less exciting.
It would be one thing if they had been there all year, but coming just for second semester now makes the show less of a documentary and more reality tv. It tarnishes it for me.
I think Lexi would have returned regardless of the show. Monica had shared she has removed athletes for a semester due to poor choices then later allowed them a second chance. Jerry was back before the show was released. Ladarius is the only one whose return seems to be linked directly to the show going viral.
This is a good article on Lexi’s return.

Since I don't know these rules well, would someone like Jerry, who wasn't on the mat the year prior only be considered in Year 1 since he competed 2019, year 2 2020, year 3 2021? Which would make him a 4 year athlete, but only 3 years on the mat?
Yes it only counts if you compete on the mat. Technically, you could do sideline cheer at a Junior College or University forever. I am not recommending that! Lol
Yes, the restriction basically only applies to years competed at NCA/UCA.
I actually think he was OO5 earlier this year.
As far as I can tell, he has been with Wildcats all year. Jerry is on that team too.
Thank you. So essentially, incoming freshmen could be against 4th and 5th year team members. I don't see how that would help anyone academically, but it could definitely elongate a cheer career I suppose.
No Im sure he was there during the summer maybe at their summer camp too.
Yea he tried out for and made OO5, not sure how long he stayed there though. He wasn't back on Wildcats until recently, wasn't there at their last comp in December.

Ladarius just joined Wildcats for this season. Jerry has been with Wildcats for a while. Both were on Wildcats last season.
As a parent of a cheerleader and after meeting Gabi’s parents a few times, I think they were unfairly portrayed. Seeing a tiny snapshot and characterizing her family because of it isn’t fair. I know they obviously agreed to be on the show but creative editing is always key on reality shows. I’m sure they are flawed, (aren’t we all?) but let’s not forget they had to give up careers, family time, etc. while helping Gabi travel the country for cheer. I’m sure being the managers and parents may not be the best for most people but for them it does work and I think they are a very tight knit family. They may not be a traditional family to some but I don’t think at this age Gabi is trapped by any means. She did a live stream about the show’s portrayal and answered questions about her family. She’s an adult so she certainly may decide to go a different route but there is no handbook for raising a 13 year old cheerlebrity and I’m sure they are trying their best. I’m not sure I know any cheer parents that aren’t a little crazy but maybe that’s just me!
Follow up on stories from the series...and this, I think, could've been posted in this subject or the Varsity's Monopoly one :

Side question/concern re: returners:
I wonder how this changes the team dynamic and everyone's behavior?
Yeah a few of them were "cheer famous" before this but now they're ACTUAL famous.
I would love to think that everyone is equal and the kids from the show are humble enough to not get big headed but who knows.
I wonder if it will create a difference in team synergy as in you have The Kids from The Show thinking they are above the Not Show Teammates.
