Shelley is a playboy bunny who is kicked out of the Playboy mansion for being too "old." She goes to sorority row and tries to apply, but the house mothers all refuse her. Finally she meets the Zetas, a sorority with socially awkward girls who agree to take her in to teach them to become popular. Shelley is super ditzy but knows how to have fun so she gives the girls pointers, makes them over, and makes them likable. Shelley also meets Oliver, who is not the typical guy she meets. Oliver is reserved and smart, and Shelley realizes that her usual tricks in attracting guys aren't working on him. This time, it's the girls who school Shelley to become booksmart and more intellectually appealing. In time, the girls become too fabulous for their own good, losing their more humble "geek appeal." Meanwhile, Shelley has been called back to the Playboy mansion, since her being booted out was due to some kind of mistake. She leaves but misses the girls, who are now in trouble with the other sororities. Shelley comes back and whips them back into shape and embraces this other confident and nurturing side of herself that she never knew existed.
