I agree that her age has something to do with it. I'm by no means a beauty queen but I've always been attracted to and dated the "hunk". My husband looked like a cross between a young Rob Lowe and Jon Erik Hexum (if anyone remembers him) and was a complete jerk but I stuck with him because he was gorgeous and I was young and stupid. We are now divorced and I am dating someone who most would not consider handsome and I didn't at first either but is so good and treats me so good that I think he is beautiful as I had hoped Larissa would see Brian. I was hoping the show would get the messsage out that looks don't matter because they fade, a deeper connection is needed as well because that doesn't fade or is less likely to. Shame on me for thinking NBC would send a message like that.
