Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) recap of the latest episode of ABC Family’s “Young & Hungry,” plus a sneak peek of Episode 6 “Young & Punchy.”
“Young & Hungry” Season 1 Episode 5 “Young & Younger” was directed by Andy Cadiff and written by Caryn Lucas. The episode began with Sofia (Aimee Carrero) chilling at the kitchen while Gabi Diamond (Emily Osment) was preparing food for her boss, Josh (Jonathan Sadowski). He told them that Caroline (Mallory Jensen) went shopping in New York for her wedding dress. While Caroline was away, Josh had planned on inviting some of his friends for a “bro-grammer” party.
They were talking about relationships when Gabi told her about Josh’s blue cheese story. Sofia noticed that there was still sexual tension between her best friend and Josh. She believed they liked each other after their accidental tryst that happened in “Pilot.” Gabi was given an advice to try dating some other guys.
Later, she rode an elevator and saw a cute guy inside. Gabi went in for the kill and asked Cam (Nick Roux) for a dinner and a movie. Cam accompanied her to her apartment. She said that they shouldn’t go fast because she didn’t want to have another “Josh” problem. In the end, they still kissed. Gabi spilled all the juicy parts with Sofia, who wanted to be credited for her “magic.”
At Josh’s loft, Gabi could not help but be giddy about her new boyfriend. She even shared to Yolanda (Kym Whitley) how they met on the elevator. Elliot (Rex Lee) continued to ask Josh if he could join him, Amir (Shawn Parikh) and their other friends at the party. Cam arrived by the door, while Yolanda and Josh surveyed him. Yolanda told her that she approved of her pick, and Josh looked really jealous.
Later, Josh saw Cam hugging another woman. He was determined to tell Gabi the truth, but Gabi shot him down. When she went by to his door, she met with Beverly (Virginia Williams), Cam’s curvaceous mother. Gabi also learned that she was dating a minor because Cam was only 17 years old. Beverly asked her to stay and have a selfie with Gabi. Cam’s mother thought that she was the tutor. Gabi went back to the apartment and met Josh. She lied to him that she and Cam were still an item.
Elliot joined the party in weird clothes. Josh asked him to look normal, but Elliot wanted to “fit” in among his friends. Yolanda then was in the elevator to look for her own man. She was there with Beverly. She also found out about Cam’s real age, which she told her boss. Josh immediately left the party with a jealous Elliot behind him.
At their apartment, Gabi and Sofia were discussing about the failed dating attempt. Her best friend suggested that Gabi tell that she had “fake” sex with Cam. Josh was there, and Gabi lied to him. They talked about their own confessions. Gabi admitted that Cam was not really there, and Josh was, in fact, jealous of him.
The episode ended with Yolanda on her second attempt in the elevator. Elliot was there to accompany her. Unfortunately, the handsome (Jude Lanston) was gay and got his eyes on Elliot.
