When a mysterious new rebel begins fighting Dominator's forces, Sylvia becomes jealous.
On Bingleborp, King Bingleborp is hosting another Bingleberry festival, when a Dominator-Bot suddenly attacks the planet. Wander and Sylvia watch as the bot wreaks havoc on the planet. Then, a mysterious cyclist donning an attire closely resembling Wander's arrives and quickly defeats the Dominator-Bot, after which he is rewarded with money and a kiss from the king's daughter. Sylvia, upset that the man saved the town rather than her and Wander, decides to follow him around.
Later, on Flendar, Wander spots another Dom-Bot destroying a temple. Sylvia rushes to try and take down the bot, but before she can do anything, the mysterious man from the previous bot encounter vanquishes the bot, and is again rewarded with money and a kiss from a princess. Denying Wander's claims of jealousy, Sylvia suspects that the man may be a fraud.
After a montage of the hero saving more planets from Dom-bots, Sylvia orchestras a plan to save the next planet form an attack before the hot shot arrives. When he does appear, Sylvia races to reach the bot first. With help from a distraction by Wander, Sylvia begins her attack on the bot, only to learn that it is being controlled by a boy named Chad. It is then revealed that the hot shot rider is actually Brad Starlight, and that he is faking saving towns from Dom-bot attacks in order to receive rewards and kisses from princesses. However, when Brad speeds off to stage another attack, a real Dom-bot launches an attack on the planet.
Wander and Sylvia quickly destroy the bot after Brad is incapacitated, after which they are applauded by the town. When Brad attempts to take all of the glory, Sylvia points him to a leech-like princess, who forcefully kisses him.

Sometime after the events of the episode, Brad has apparently married the leech lady. She gives him a wedding anniversary present, after which they kiss, much to the disgust of their children.

King Bingleborp: I, King Bingleborp of the Binglebops, declare this to be the best Bingleberry festival... assuming no horrible galactic dictators show up to destroy it again... in the history of Binglebopolopolis!
(the Binglebops cheer seconds before a Dominator-Bot crashes into the planet in the same manner as Lord Hater's ship in "The Greatest")
Bing Bingleborp: SERIOUSLY?! All right, everyone! You know the drill!
Sylvia: What a show-off!
Wander: What an inspiration!
Both: Wait, what?
Sylvia: Inspiration? Wander, the only thing that guy was inspired by was us! I mean, green hat? Orange fuzz? But where's the flad-drassin' hardance and seri?!
Sylvia: Did you see what he just did?
Wander: He saved the town from that giant Dom-bot!
Sylvia: No, he shoved us out of the way of that giant Dom-bot so he could get the glory.
Wander: Ah, methinks I spy a green-eyed monster.
Sylvia: Where?! I'll take him out before that hot shot does!
Wander: Sylvia, are you jealous?
Sylvia: Of him? Ho! Please. There is something phony about his baloney and I am gonna prove it!
Wander: Sylvia, I'm the strong and silent type. (beat) Pretend I'm not talking right now.
Brad: Yeah, yeah, I know. "Gasp! Brad Starlight?! You?! But why?" Because I am strong, I am a man, I have a big chin! I am the hero! Me, me, me! This should be my thunder, and you and your dumb steed aren't going to take it from me!
Wander: Brad, there's plenty of thunder! Maybe there's a way you can still help us stop Dominator!
Brad: Stop Dominator? (chuckles) Simple gesture. I can't very well help planets and smooch princesses if I'm dead, can I?
Sylvia: (scoffs) But you're not actually helping!
Brad: Ah-ah-ah! Hush, girl. It never hurts to help... yourself!
Sylvia: Oh, no. That's a real Dom-bot!
Chad: Wait, what? Um, oh! Uh, I forgot. I have, like, a thing... s...somewhere where there's not a real killer robot. Later!
