Young & Hungry's Jesse McCartney Previews Tense Season 2 Love Triangle

Young & Hungry Season 2

ABC Family’s Young & Hungry returns for its second season Wednesday (8/7c), as does nerd-in-shining-armor Cooper (played by Jesse McCartney) — but how long before Gabi’s jealous boss chases him back to China?

“There’s definitely a lot more tension between Josh and Cooper this season,” McCartney tells TVLine. “Before, when Josh was engaged, he couldn’t really let on how he felt about Gabi. But now that Josh is single, it becomes a full-on love triangle.”

And in true love-triangle fashion, it isn’t long before Gabi catches wind of Josh’s feelings.

Young & Hungry Season 2“Gabi is eventually going to find out how Josh feels about her, and it’s going to make things pretty awkward for the three of them,” McCartney teases. “And I don’t think I’m giving too much away by saying that she’ll eventually have to make a choice between the two.”

Regardless of which guy Gabi chooses, though, McCartney says he’s just enjoying dipping his toe back into the comedy world.

“I actually think the last time I did a sitcom was Hannah Montana back in the day,” he says. “And that was with Emily Osment, so it’s like we’ve come full circle!”

    Team josh all the way they are beautiful people together and they never had a shot.i wish that gabby would find out by walking into the room and josh told her to sit down, and the TV starts going off about his voice mail to gabby and she stares at him, he says gabby say something, she says I’m sorry , and runs out the door.the 2 workers had a glass on the door listening and she opens the door and they fall saying heyyyyyy!!! Then she runs and they chase after her saying that she should date josh a leave jesse at the curb.then she second guesses her self and dumps jesse and comes up on joshes fire escape with his blanket that he gave her for China in the poring rain, explains herself to josh and they kiss and the 2 workers walk in pause staring at josh and gabby and the girl says dang josh your some kind of player with the ladies and the guy says game on just not with her and then jesse walks in on them kissing and the show ends……gabby in the beginning can’t focus on cooking or ON Jesse AND SHE SAY I CAN Do THIS It’s not you its me im sorry but I can’t do this it’s to much

    Team josh

  48. Autumn says:

    #teamjosh You can tell josh loves Gabi so much, and it just makes sense. They are perfect together. Cooper has just never been the right one. No offense I love me some Jesse McCartney! But everyone has to agree that it has been Gabi & Josh that were meant to be from the start we all could see it coming.
