Crush: Michael C. Maronna
6 of 8
You Know Him As: Older, more reasonable Pete on "The Adventures of Pete and Pete" Some girls accepted early on the impossibility of roping in a real-life AC Slater. So they found more accessible objects of affection. These same ladies, perhaps, have developed healthy and realistic expectations of love. Congratulations to them. An attainable cursh could be found in Michael, a frequently overlooked cause of Clinton era practice eyelash-batting. Pete and Pete’s parents obviously conferred with Clarissa Darling’s on matters of childrearing – their choices to give their sons the same name, and permit their 11-year-old to get a tattoo on his forearm were highly suspect. Somehow, though, they did something right with Old Pete, and he managed to wriggle his way into the hearts of shy girls who craved the supportive kindness of a guy who forewent his surly teen phase to be such a good friend to his little brother. Although he seems to have maintained an impressively low profile recently, it is worth noting that he was apparently suspended from school at one point for setting fire to a guitar in the hallway. Actually, perhaps he has a nice story as to why he did that, and could in the process lay claim to your love once again.
