Miley now becomes popular, since the media publicized the relationship between her and Jake. After that, Jake acts like the perfect boyfriend. He even names a star after Miley. He also decides to be totally honest with her, and tells her that his real name is Leslie. At first Miley doesn't believe it, but then accepts that it is the truth. She feels guilty about not telling him that she is Hannah Montana, and feels even worse after going to a second-grade class to read about honesty and having to answer to the questions of the children and messing up more.
Meanwhile, Jackson becomes annoyed with his boss, Rico, since he charges too much for his merchandise. Rico tricks Jackson into paying for a customer and then Rico fires Jackson, and Jackson decides to make Rico regret it. He starts his own business, which is initially a failure. Jackson and Oliver accidentally create a new recipe together - Cheese Jerky, and they start a new business selling the Cheese Jerky. Their creation is incredibly popular, which makes Rico furious.
Finally, Miley reveals to Jake that she is really Hannah Montana as she feels she can't keep lying to Jake.
After Miley reveals her secret, they both share a kiss only for the paparazzi to nearly spot the two. Jake and Miley go on a date to the movies, but have no privacy to themselves because of all of the fans. Jake and Miley leave the movie theatre early, and go back to Miley's house and are about to kiss, when they are interrupted by Miley's father. Miley then becomes confused because Jake was honest with her and because of the Hannah secret she can't be honest with him. Whenever Jake and Miley go out in public, Jake Ryan fans flock around them. Noticing Miley's discomfort, he purchases a black wig and disguises himself so that fans will not bother them on dates. However, Jake soon realizes that there are some drawbacks to not being recognized as a celebrity.
Jake becomes frustrated and leaves the restaurant. He makes a second attempt to go on a date with Miley as a "normal person", but finds that he can't do it. He grows impatient after waiting about thirty seconds for his ice-cream, when he finally gets his ice cream, he gets thirsty and steals water from a small girl instead of purchasing it himself. Subsequently, he doesn't stop talking about himself and his fame when they are together. Miley, irritated, wants to break up with him, but fears that he will reveal her secret if she does. She then decides to make Jake break up with her by driving him crazy in public.
On their next date, she behaves inappropriately, wears a ridiculous goose outfit supposedly Bjork's swan dress, and flaunts her fake excessive armpit hair to the public, embarrassing Jake. Jake reveals his belief that the reason behind Miley's behavior is that she is jealous of him. Miley hopes that this will make Jake break up with her, but Jake doesn't want to part with her, making Miley even more upset. She finally tells him that he was acting annoying and conceited, and that he apparently cannot be a normal person. Then she tries to say that if they were to break up, she is afraid that Jake would tell her secret, but can't finish her sentence, so Jake says "What... tell your secret? Well, if that is the kind of person you think I am, then maybe I will tell your secret!" Miley soon becomes very agitated and upset.
Then, Jake sends Miley a box with a rose inside and a note attached. In the note, Jake wrote that Miley's words were true. He says he will try to become a normal person before attempting to go out with her again. He also confirms that he will not disclose her secret. He signs the note as Leslie, not Jake. She reads and so does her dad, who asks who Leslie is. She says "A very good friend", to which Robby responds "Let's just hope he's not another actor."
Meanwhile, Rico makes a second attempt to steal the Cheese Jerky recipe, but fails. Jackson and Oliver are still making tons of money. However, they had not factored in the cost of ingredients and supplies. Once they cover those costs, Jackson is left with only $1.00. Jackson then realizes that he was better off working for Rico. He then returns to his job at Rico's . When Rico questions why he returned, Jackson insisted that his being fired and the whole Cheese Jerky business never happened, making Rico look crazy.

Part 2 included 3.4 million viewers in the 9 to 14 group, and the 7.38 million total viewers marked the largest audience for a Hannah Montana episode up to that point (The episode "Me and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas
", which premiered after High School Musical 2
has since broken that series record). For comparison, the show with the most viewers in prime time the same night was 60 Minutes
, with 8.5 million viewers. The airing of the second half of "Achy Jakey Heart" coincided with the release of Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus
", which was the top selling record for that week. Parts one and two of "Achy Jakey Heart" were the numbers one and two best selling TV shows on iTunes for the week of July 11, 2007. This episode was the second highest rated cable program for its week, behind the season premier of The Closer
. It was also the second highest rating ever for an episode of a Disney Channel original series, and third highest rated cable program for the month. A combination of reasons contributed to the high ratings. One was that only one of ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CW and Univision aired a non-rerun, Fox's ratings challenged The Loop
. Another reason was that it was a "must see" episode due to it being the second part of a story arc where Jake Ryan attempts to restart his romance with Miley. Another possible ratings boost was provided when this episode was advertised on the previous Friday, which was the Disney Channel's highest rated day ever. "Achy Jakey Heart" also aired two days before Hannah Montana's
season one DVD was released, which Disney was heavily promoting. The airdate also happened during the same week as the announcement of a new Hannah Montana clothing line.
