WARNING: Average Joe spoilers ahead. Proceed with caution. If you watched the show – or if you didn’t because you just don’t care – I need your feedback.
On a side note, Adam returns in two weeks. Now I have something else to look forward to on March 15!
I don’t hate Larissa as much as I hated Melana the last time around, probably because I simply adored Adam, and I was left just liking Brian. But … hello? Why did she pick Gil over Brian? Damn editing. I was totally set up for her to pick Brian. I was ready for it. Then she picks Gil. Heartless guy who just wants to be an actor.
I finally really started to like Brian in the last two episodes. It was of course enhanced because his hometown is Boston, and Boston ROCKS! I was so giddy just seeing him waiting for her in front of the Aquarium, then he took her on a Harbor tour. Cool, cool … but the best part? Them at Fenway. When that baseball player walked out, Brian was just floored. It was – in his own words – AWESOME! I thought she was totally going to go for him by the time the date was over.
So I’m sitting there, bitter and angry because I fell for it again, swearing that I will only watch Adam’s Average Joe show, but no others. Then they cut away to her and Gil in Cabo San Luca, and I realize that we have not heard her big secret yet.
Emily and I discussed our theories of the big secret over lunch today. Emily said it was probably that she posed in Playboy. I said that I thought she was going to say that she had been married and divorced.
Gil & Larrissa spend three great days in Mexico. Then on the rainy, stormy day – she announces her big secret.
She used to date Fabio.
Gil freaks, says that anyone else would understand how he feels, and leaves her in Mexico.
What? Huh? Because she dated Fabio?
I just don’t get it. My anger for her was gone because I was so stunned over his behavior. He left her, in Mexico, after four days, because she dated Fabio.
Really? Do guys have that huge of an issue with Fabio? I know he’s the cheesy beefcake on the romance novels, but would you dump someone just because they dated Fabio?
I’m still puzzled. I just don’t get it. Dude, it’s just Fabio.
