People Auction is the twelfth episode in Season 2 and the 25th overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The epiosde aired on April 9, 2006.


After a fire burns down Sushi Rox, Zoey and the gang hold a people auction to raise money in order to rebuild it. Chase and Michael get auctioned to the sushi-crazy gym teacher. Zoey, Lola, and Nicole become Logan's personal cheerleaders, and they are told to "cheer his awesomeness," as in cheer for everything he does. His plan, however, backfires when the girls decide to cheer for everything he does (waking up, getting back in the shower, and getting rejected by a girl he asks out on a date).

  • This episode is the first time Nicole's last name was verbally stated.
  • Zoey was the one who ordered the tempura roll, which then caused the fire, but Coach Keller did not get mad at her.
  • Logan blames Chase and Zoey for the fire, but it's really Kazu's fault. He could've turned off the stove or grill.
  • In this episode, Nicole is seen eating raw fish in her sushi. But in the episode, "Little Beach Party," she said she usually doesn't like fish.
  • This episode is referenced in the Season 3 episode Hot Dean, where Kazu reminds Chase to not burn down his restaurant again.
  • Quinn was not part of the people auction and plays a minor role in this episode.
  • There Should there be a fire sprinkler in the restaurant if had those installed saved the restaurant.
