|“||Now you can't lead us into the final chear... or audition for the school musical.||”|
"participANTs" is the first episode in Season 1 of A.N.T. Farm due to the episode "TransplANTed" being shown as the preview. However, most people refer to it as the second episode, as do certain streaming services, including Netflix. It features the first appearance of Susan Skidmore
Chyna, Olive, and Fletcher decide to get involved in extracurricular activities. Chyna and Olive try out to join the cheer squad, but only Chyna makes it in. Meanwhile, Fletcher joins Cameron's "End Hunger Today" club and soon learns he is using it to get free food.
When the A.N.T.s are introduced to extracurricular activities, Chyna convinces Olive to make an effort to be more involved with their school's extracurricular activities, so they both try out for the cheerleading squad. Only Chyna gets accepted, but she gets more than she bargained for when Lexi puts her cheerleading skills to the test. She purposely weakens Chyna enough to make her lose her voice and look terrible, right before the school musical auditions. Chyna apologizes to Olive, using an A.N.T. Pad. She tells her that she will not try out for the school play, but Olive convinces her to go for it. Lexi's singing audition went perfectly, but Chyna's singing audition was hoarse. Chyna confronts Lexi, Mr. Zimbaldi, and the pianist, about looking at her as if she is a freak. Mr. Zimbaldi ends up believes she is actually citing lines from a movie, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", and gives her the part, causing Lexi's plan to backfire. Meanwhile, Cameron creates his own club called the "End Hunger Today Club" as an excuse to eat buffalo wings all for himself, but when Fletcher catches him in the act and threatens to tell the teachers about his fake club, Cameron is forced to let Fletcher join.
