Marissa Challenges Her Mom to a 50 Dollar Bet

In the middle of cooking empanadas with her mother, Lisette, Marissa is once again questioned about why she still hasn't obtained a driver's license—not exactly the performer's favorite topic.

Arguing that she doesn't have time to schedule a driver's test between Dancin' On Air rehearsals, Marissa is visibly exasperated. "It's like she doesn't understand that dancing is my passion. At the end of the day, this is a job for me, so I'm gonna treat it as a job."

Despite her daughter's explanation, Lisette still doesn't believe that Marissa has the willpower and time management skills to pull off a license exam.

The solution? A monetary bet, of course. Fifty bucks says that Marissa will nab that license the very next day.

"This is gonna be so fun because I'm gonna be collecting 50 dollars—I need some more makeup," the performer says.
