While fans of Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky may have been surprised to see her on Huge with no makeup, scraggly hair, and a cynical and sarcastic personality, the 21-year-old says she's "never felt more pretty in a role." Blonsky spoke to TVGuide.com about how she brings Will to life, and how Will's feelings for Ian (Ari Stidham) and keeping a secret for Amber (Hayley Hasselhoff) will affect them in Monday's season finale.
Getting your heart broken is no fun, but it may just be what Huge's Amber needed.
Last week, Camp Victory's resident pretty girl — though she doesn't think so herself — was dumped by hunky counselor George (Zander Eckhouse) barely two trysts into their secret relationship. She ended the episode in tears — a good wake-up call, says Hayley Hasselhoff, who plays Amber.

As the summer crushes escalate in this diverting series, Will (Blonsky) channels her jealousy over Ian's crush on Hayley into writing a love song. Will it be music to the campers' ears?
A summer camp romance is as traditional as summer camp itself — but what if that romance is with an authority figure?
"I don't know if it's as common as [one between campers], but I'm sure it's happened," Huge star Zander Eckhouse tells TVGuide.com. "You have to walk that fine line. Can you? Can't you? It's definitely tough."
