Brooks Rattigan is a high school senior, with dreams of getting into Yale, while his father, Charlie wants him to go to the University of Connecticut. He works at a sub shop with his best friend, programmer Murph, but financing his college dreams proves troubling. Brooks seizes the opportunity to make some extra cash by posing as the boyfriend of his friend’s wealthy cousin Celia Lieberman of Greenwich. He finds he has a knack for dating with his adaptable personality. He meets Shelby and makes it his goal to win her over, pretending to be from wealthy Darien rather than working class Bridgeport.
He and Murph launch an app, selling himself as the plus-one for all occasions. After finding out that Celia has a crush on Franklin Volley (Blaine Kern II), they set up a plan to fake break-up, in which each of them gets to be with Shelby and Frank. As business booms for Brooks, Murph feels neglected and cuts Brooks off. Celia sets up an interview for Brooks at Yale, and is upset when she finds out that he researched the Dean previously and lied to be liked. Brooks justifies it, saying that it’s no different than what he’s been doing with his app.
Celia realizes that Frank is not the person for her, however doesn’t tell Brooks. When they conduct their fake break up, she is hurt by his words, and slaps him. Brooks is under the impression that it’s all an act.
