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.

"She came to camp to lose weight and I think now she realizes she got off-track because she focused all her time and energy on this boy that she shouldn't really be with," Hasselhoff tells TVGuide.com. "Her whole fling with George brings her to a place where she figures out a whole different side to herself. She was secretive and a little insecure about it, but now she knows she needs to be true to herself and not let him dictate her life."

That doesn't mean Amber's over George, but timing and circumstances are everything. He's older — 21 to her 16 — and is an authority figure, while she's just a camper. "There are some things that are still up in the air," Hasselhoff says. "There's obviously mutual attraction there, which is why I think [the storyline happened] so quickly."
