Paige just landed the role of her dreams but needs our help choosing the guy of her dreams. Who will it be, best friend Jake or mega-star Rainer?
By now hopefully, you are binging on Marlene King’s latest stroke of genius, ‘Famous in Love.’ This new series premiered on April 18, 2017, and then FreeForm dropped the remaining nine episodes on their app as well as on Hulu for immediate streaming. Paige Townsen (Bella Thorne) has landed her dream role opposite the hottie superstar Rainer Devon (Carter Jenkins). Rainer has taken an instant liking to Paige because she’s not like anyone else he’s ever met, but she’s keeping him at bay and protecting herself. Paige is also pretty sure she has feelings for her roommate, Jake Saltz (Charlie DePew). She has now kissed both guys, sure the kiss with Rainer was part of her audition but that’s beside the point, and she has no idea what to do!
Paige and Rainer
What we love about them:
From the minute Rainer and Paige met there was electricity in the air. When the two of them kissed, you could practically see the fireworks, even the director saying cut didn’t stop the kiss. They definitely have a very strong physical connection to each other, but it’s yet to see if there is anything beyond the physical.
“Paige, just take a breath. I’m here for you.” – Rainer to Paige, 1×02 ‘A Star is Torn’
The best of Rainer:
Rainer definitely has a movie star smile that all the ladies love. Of course, he expects Paige to fall for him instantly so when she doesn’t immediately say yes when he asks her out he thinks she’s just playing hard to get. Rainer is used to getting what he wants. Usually, Rainer can just say “Jump” and everyone jumps, but Paige was different. Paige was new to Hollywood, she loved Rainer’s smile just as much as the next girl but she wasn’t going to let it deter her from doing a good job. Rainer doesn’t let this stop him, just like in his career he’s determined to get Paige to go on a date with him and he’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.
The worst of Rainer:
Rainer is a bit of a hot head, instead of using words he uses his fists to get his point across when he’s upset. A lot can be said about communication, however, Rainer doesn’t usually get that far. Rainer is also a recovering addict so relapse is also always on the back of his mind. Rainer has been acting since he was a young child so he never learned how to communicate with peers his own age so that could be why he tends to talk to with his fists. Do you guys think that if Rainer wants a chance with Paige he will need to get his temper in check?
Paige and Jake
What we love about them:
Paige met Jake their freshman year at CMU when they had a theater class together, along with Cassandra Perkins (Georgie Flores). Soon the three were doing everything together, including living together. Paige didn’t know it at the time, but Jake loved her from the moment he met her. Jake is the guy friend every girl wants to have; he’s the best roommate, confidant, and let’s be honest, he’s smoking hot! Do you guys think Paige can let Jake out of the friend zone?
“He is the best guy friend I’ve ever had and I’m not gonna screw that up.” – Paige to Cassie, 1×01 ‘Pilot’
The best of Jake:
Jake is a very loyal friend which leads us to believe he’d be a very loyal boyfriend, and let’s face it ladies that’s what we all want isn’t it? Jake typically puts whatever Paige needs him to do before what he needs to have done even if it sacrifices his own grades or gets in the way of his own dreams. This can also be seen as a downfall we guess, but when you’re just starting out as an actress you have to know who you can trust and we feel that Paige can really count on Jake when it all comes down to it. He’s going to be loyal to her no matter what.
The worst of Jake:
Call it immaturity or insecurity but Jake does have a tendency to have bad judgment. The first time Alexis Glenn (Niki Koss) looks his way he runs off for four days. We think a lot of this is to make Paige jealous and boy does it work. Jake also makes snap decisions when things don’t go exactly his way, which ties into having bad judgment. We think this is definitely something he’ll need to fix before Paige can even consider taking things to the next level with him. Paige is in the spotlight now with everyone looking at her, she can’t afford to be with someone she can’t predict. Do you agree? Is Jake too impulsive at times?
