Nicky and Milo comment on how quirky their respective dads are. When they expect Pepper Ann to mention her dad, Chuck, it quickly becomes apparent that she does not have any interesting to say about him. Pepper Ann learns of the game show That's My Dad, a spin-off of Guess My Mama, and talks about it among her peers. Tessa and Vanessa mention that there are tryouts to be on the show. When Pepper Ann comments on how dumb the show sounds, Trinket states that that is because she does not know her dad as he does not live with her. Pepper Ann decides to challenge Trinket by going on the show with Chuck.
Pepper Ann signs up for the show and asks Lydia for things about Chuck, but tells her that she does not need to worry because he is her father. Thinking that Trinket will beat her, despite her making no effort to practice, Pepper Ann has Nicky and Milo help her with preparing using letters and photos, but none of them help. Chuck arrives to visit on Saturday, with Lydia noticeably more prepared for him, as Pepper Ann and Moose choose to hang out with him during the day. Pepper Ann begins to ask numerous personal questions about Chuck, which he only seems slightly indifferent to answer to. He tells her not to worry as she will do fine on the show.
On Sunday, Pepper Ann and Chuck head to the tryouts. After seeing Trinket leaving feeling confident about her knowledge of her dad, Pepper Ann goes to sulk with her reflection as she thinks that her dad is a stranger to her. Chuck comes around and comforts her; telling her that just because they only see each other once a month, does not mean that they are strangers and points out how Trinket does not really hang out with her dad even though they live together. Pepper Ann realizes that she knows her dad more than she thought and she and Chuck agree to go pick up Moose and spend the day together instead of doing the show.
