Little does Cecile know that Kathryn has an alterior motive. Kathryn was dating a guy named Court Reynolds and Court dumped her to go out with Cecile. Cecile didn\'t know about Kathryn so she didn\'t have any idea what was about to happen. Kathryn talked Sebastian into seducing Cecile so she could spread around to everyone that Cecile was a slut. Sebastian felt this wasn\'t a challenge but he knew what was. Her name was Annette Hargrove (Witherspoon). Annette wrote an article for a magazine entitled "Why I Will Wait", it was about why she will wait until marriage to have sex. Sebastian decides this will be his greatest victory.
Kathryn bets him that he can\'t get her.

He can\'t think who it might be but he does know one guy that she knows, his name is Greg McConnell. He can\'t figure out how to get back at him so he contacts his homosexual friend Blaine. Blaine tells him that Greg is a closet homosexual and they have messed around before, so they set it up to where Blaine will invite Greg over and then Sebastian will bust in and take a picture of them in bed together and ruin him cause he told Annette. But it turns out that he didn\'t tell Annette but he says he will find out who did so Sebastian won\'t ruin him.
He finds out it was Ceciles mom. Finally he gets past what Annette thinks of him and she starts to fall for him. They fall in love and Kathryn hates it. So she sleeps with Ronald and Sebastian busts in on them and Ronald runs away. Kathryn tells Sebastian that it will never work with Annette cause he will just ruin her life. She says, "People can\'t just change overnight".
This crushes Sebastian cause he loves Annette so much, and he doesn\'t want to hurt her. So he goes and tells her she was just a bet and he doesn\'t love her even though this is a lie. After he does this he is devestated. Finally he decides screw Kathryn and goes to tell Annette that he really does love her.
