'Young & Hungry' season 2 premiere fan react: Josh or Cooper?

Season 2 | Episode 1 |”Young and Too Late” | Aired Mar 25, 2015

Welcome to season two, fellow Young & Hungry fans! For those of you who need a refresher, season one ended like this:

  • Gabi made a really sweet blanket for Josh’s wedding, but instead gave it to Caroline and let Josh think Caroline made it. Caroline, of course, went along with the lie because Caroline was kind of the worst.
  • Josh called off his wedding when he found out Gabi made the blanket because he realized he and Gabi are meant to be, because duh.
  • Cooper, sweet, amazing, Jesse McCartney Cooper, flew all the way back from China to surprise Gabi because he is sweet and amazing. And, oh yeah, he kind of looks like Jesse freaking McCartney.
  • Josh goes to Gabi’s apartment to surprise her and try to sweep her off her feet, but sees her sucking face with Cooper and runs away crying.

And scene. That’s your catch-up. We open season two the very next day, with Josh in bed with a blonde. Yeah, the same color as Gabi’s blond hair. This makes Josh’s personal assistants, Yolanda and Elliot, think that that blonde is Gabi, which gets them all giddy with excitement for the two’s budding relationship. Only problem, it isn’t Gabi. Gabi spent all night sucking face with Cooper, as we saw in the season one finale.

So who is the mystery blonde? Well, that’s not really explained. We just know it isn’t Gabi. She just looks like Gabi, which is weird. Come on, Josh. Be less creepy.

Speaking of Cooper, he wants Gabi to go to China with him for a couple of weeks. Let’s start with that. Didn’t these two, like, just start dating? I mean, I know he’s sweet and amazing, but three weeks in China with the guy? Oh, who am I kidding. No one on this show has ever proven to know anything about restraint or proper reasoning skills. She wants to go, and he wants her to go. So the only problem is, will Gabi’s boss let her go? In case you forgot, her boss is Josh.

So now Gabi has to have an awkward conversation with Josh about the fact that she made him a blanket for his wedding and she would like three weeks off for vacation. Well, let’s be honest. Gabi talking with Josh isn’t about her asking her boss if she can take vacation time with her new boyfriend. Gabi talking with Josh is about finding out if it’s okay with him if she goes on a vacation with her new boyfriend. Because deep down, she probably wants Josh to be her new boyfriend. And he probably wants her to be his new girlfriend. Even though less than 24 hours ago, he was going to marry another girl. Like I said, these people know nothing about taking your time and really thinking things through.

This brings us to the biggest debate to date. Are you pro-Josh or pro-Cooper? On one hand, you have Cooper, who flew literally across the world to see Gabi for one night. And to ask her in person to go back with him. And he’s super-sweet, and smart and a good guy.

On the other hand, you have Josh, who cheated on his girlfriend with Gabi, then proposed to his girlfriend anyway and never told her about his cheating. Josh, who impulsively slept with a girl who looks just like Gabi when he realized Gabi was with Cooper for real. Josh, who is Gabi’s boss. Which is weird.

Did I mention that Cooper also looks like Jesse McCartney? Yeah, I think I’ve made it pretty obvious who I would pick, Gabi.

Young & Hungry airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
