An alternate pilot was released as a bonus episode on the season 1 DVD set. Although similar to the one which aired there are many differences. The narration is done by someone else (not mentioned in credits). Many scenes are also different or simply cut. For example -Kyle doesn't walk around town naked in this version. -Declan doesn't even show up until the party. -Nicole goes back to destroy Kyle's paper work so she can keep him. -Kyle doesn't play basketball with Josh. Also you can see Jean-Luc Bilodeau (Josh) is younger in this version as when it was filmed he hadn't hit puberty yet, so even his voice is higher. There are also other changes which you'll have to watch the episode to see.

He gets on the bad side of both Trager kids, Josh and Lori, and annoys Stephen, Nicole's husband. But one by one, Kyle influences them to accept him.
After finding a photo of himself and Jessi locked in Baylin’s box, Kyle and Declan realize that the best way to crack the mystery of Jessi is to get close to her is at the high school charity event.

After Cassidy helps to save Nicole’s life, Kyle is a man of his word and begins to pay his debt back to Latnok. But what Kyle finds is a complete surprise -- Latnok is not some dark scary place…but rather a hip college hang-out for young and bright minds, including Mark. Still not willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, Kyle decides after his first day there never to return, but rethinks his decision when he finds out about his family’s financial dilemma. Will Kyle sell his soul to the devil to help out the Tragers, or can he find another way to get a hold of some quick cash? Meanwhile, Jessi comes clean about everything to Kyle, which brings about mixed results.
