The Guys of Ugly Betty
Who’s going to end up with our girl?
Over the past four seasons, Ugly Betty fans have watched their heroine go from a smart but naïve editorial assistant living with her family in Queens to a sophisticated, gutsy editor at Mode magazine who gets to go to London for Fashion Week. Although Betty’s no cover girl, her smile and her smarts have drawn guys ever since the first day she rocked it at Meade Publications in braces and a “Guadalajara” poncho. So what hottie is going to be at her side forever and ever when the series finale airs on April 14? Has her drunken text to Henry rekindled the flames with her first true love? Will her last boyfriend, gazillionaire Matt Hartley, return to pick up where they left off?
America Ferrera, who plays Betty, knows for sure but isn’t saying, commenting only that there are “new relationships, or old relationships that become new and kind of change a little bit.” So since she’s not talking, let’s take a closer look at Betty’s exes and see who’s best for our UB!
Walter Tabachnik (Kevin Sussman)– Betty’s goofy first boyfriend dumped her for one of his friendlier customers at Pro-Buy, the electronics store where he worked. Realizing he had made a huge mistake, he tried to make up with her but broke off the relationship again after he took a job at one of the chain’s stores in Maryland.
Is he the one? Betty in the suburbs of Maryland? Please. We don’t think so.
Henry Grubstick (Christopher Gorham) – Nothing could stop Betty from being with the hottest accountant at Meade Publishing. Even when she learned he was the father of another woman’s baby, Betty kept seeing Henry until he moved away to be closer to his son. Distance hasn’t stopped them, either. He was the man Betty drunk dialed while in on assignment for Mode in London.
Is he the one? Absolutely. How can you not root for Betty and Henry to be together, especially after their love survived her sister Hilda’s meddling to keep them apart? Betty turned down Henry’s proposal once so he wouldn’t leave his son. Something tells us if he asks again, her answer will be a lot more accommodating.
Giovanni “Gio” Rossi (Freddy Rodriguez)– Leave it to Betty to hook up with the hottest sandwich maker in Manhattan. But she decided not to follow through on his invitation to spend the summer together in Rome.
Is he the one? Not a chance. Gio’s found the woman of his dreams–a bread maker.
