on Average Joe 2 Hawaii’s finale, Larissa picks hot guy Gil, gets dumped.
Yet again, NBC has failed to deliver an average guy into the arms of a not-so-average girl. The twist on Average Joe 2: Hawaii introduced hot guys into the mix, and Larissa took the bait, selecting dimwit Gil instead of romantic Brian. Gil freaked out upon learning that Larissa once dated Fabio (seriously), and then, as Zap2it.com puts in its recap, Gil “storms around on the beach kicking driftwood, cursing fate and throwing stones” and then “rants to the cameras about his own inadequacy.”
+ also: Fabio “emerged like a deus ex machina last night to determine the final shape of the romantic reality play.”
