Make It Or Break It (#111) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Personal challenges come in all shapes and sizes, from jobs gone bad to dating disasters. And getting beyond them means weathering the storm when things go terribly but hilariously wrong. Michele Carlo turns lemons into lemonade when she gets busted moonlighting during an internship; Matthew Sablan spins a nightmare date into a life lesson and lasting friendships; and powerlifter Mikelina Belaineh Googles her way to combining two worlds that seem impossible to mesh. Three storytellers, three interpretations of "Make It or Break It," hosted by Wes Hazard.
