'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' star Gabrielle Ruiz reveals her pick between Josh, Greg and Nathaniel for Rebecca ahead of series finale
'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,' one of the most poignant and hilarious shows to ever grace our tv screens is coming to an end with Friday night's episode, wherein we will learn once and for all who Rebecca, portrayed by the talented show creator Rachel Bloom, will pick among her three beaus as her partner.
The last couple of episodes have focused on Rebecca's love life, specifically how the three most important men in her life - Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III), Greg (Skylar Astin) and Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster) - revealed they are all in love with her. The series finale will hopefully end with Rebecca making her choice in terms of a romantic partner.
The fans of The CW show have obviously been polarized over this, with many picking a favorite among the three - much like the various characters within the show. Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin), for example, is Team Josh, while Heather (Vella Lovell) is Team Nathaniel and Valencia (Gabriel Ruiz) is Team Greg. "I think it's hilarious that Valencia is so Team Greg, I think it's so funny," Ruiz told MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) regarding her character's pick, adding why she gets it. "I remember in some season 1 moment, despite the lack of conversation that they have, you just knew that they were good fun."
Personally, though, Ruiz does not agree with her character, choosing instead to root for Josh. "I do hope she ends up with Joshie," she said, adding, "Getting to know Vincent Rodriguez, as Valencia, as a girlfriend, I have known Josh's story on a deeper side since season 1, so I guess I know that story the most with his journey and his maturity. He really has one of the sweetest heart and that comes through, through Vincent's acting and when you see Rachel and Vinny together offscreen, they have the same kindred spirit, so I think Rebecca and Josh's spirits are the most kindred of hearts and I would love for them to end up together."
As fans will remember, Valencia and Josh used to be a couple a very long time ago, but she has since moved on to Beth (Emma Willmann), who has been a grounding force in her life. Despite a rogue storyline about how she had an intense love story with Father Brah (Rene Gube), they are going pretty strong, and according to Ruiz, they will stay so for a long time.
In fact, when asked about what her character would be doing ten years down the line, she said, "I truly believe Beth and Valencia will have two kids. I am sure Valencia will carry those kids. She will be like 'Yes, I am going to be a pregnant diva,' take all the glam photos for Instagram, and I think their children will have Instagram with a lot of followers," she said, adding she believes her character will be super rich in the future.
"I was joking about this on the group text [with the rest of the cast] and I said 'Hands down, I think Valencia will be a millionaire on a multi-level marketing company.' So, whatever multi-level marketing company will latch on to her, she will be the biggest diva and have all the cars and all the vacations," she joked. "It's obvious that Valencia is never going to not return to West Covina, so I think that MLM life will give her that flexibility to travel. Then she will be able to afford it."
The two-hour series finale of 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' will air Friday, April 5, at 9/8c on The CW.
