The problem with the Progressive girl is that she looks kind of cute, until you stick a cute girl next to her, and then realize she's kind of frightening looking.

BTW, what happened to the show that was supposed to have the Geico ape men on it?  I saw a website and I think one ad for it, then boom! gone.

It's not that she is ugly, but think about having to look at her day after day after day.

There have been many threads here on Flo (the Progressive chick). In my opinion, these are the worst commercials out there right now. They ANNOY the hell out of me.

You think having to look at her day after day is bad, what about having to listen to her?Angry

These commercials are so idiotic, they grate on my nerves like no other commercial I can think of. Flo, may you burn in hell! Worse yet, make her watch her own commercials 24/7! Hehehe.....

(actually, from *my* perspective, they both need a little more exposure to the sun)

Honestly, I don't mind Flo the progressive chick all that much as far as looks go. She doesn't really frighten or annoy me in the looks department.

It's her insane yelling like crazy about car insurance and her dumb little "jokes" that do annoy me!

The insurance store behind her reminds me too much of the old Egghead Software stores. The one in Irvine California had a sales gal that looked eerily similar.Wacko

I'll say it again, look at all the things these commercials don't do - no pushy special effects or other really overproduced things, no gross-out jokes or pointless dark comedy, no pinched songs (if they had a jingle - and I'm sure a lot of you are thinking "Heaven forbid!" - it would probably be some chirpy little one that was written for it, both words and music). In a funny way, they're almost a "throwback" to those earlier ads that people miss so much.

Also, even if she does have a stereotyped Goth girl look (as someone said), I think she also reminds me of one or more earlier comediennes, sort of like an Imogene Coca (sorry to anyone who liked her and hates the Flo actress, but that's just a for instance).

A plump, pasty white, obnoxious girl in clown make-up selling insurance?

I am so over this bitch.  Like, seriously these ads have been on FOR-E-VER (The Sandlot's pronunciation Smile) and they just keep getting sillier and sillier.  The new one w/ the guy and the remote control?  I just don't get it.  They are an epic fail IMO of pointing to the product being pitched.  And she's fug, sorry to those of you who find her pretty.  Like it was said above, she's maybe cute until you really look @ her or compare her to a pretty girl and she's just, wonky looking.  Her pasty pale skin, the ridiculous red thick lipstick, her crazy eyes and her bump-it hair.  Ugh...just over her!   But YMMV.
 
I live outside of Philadelphia, and this reminds me...about 6 months ago on my way to work the Preston and Steve radio show did a whole segment on whether the Progessive girl was cute or not.  I was hysterically laughing all the way to work and it was so funny because it was split evenly between both men and women, about half of each find her cute and the other half think she's hideous!
Is visa really the only card accepted at [INSERT ANY SPORTING EVENT]???

They may have been on forever, but at least there's a SET of them, unlike the exact same one of something that comes on constantly. Even if you hate them, you get to hate them with some variety! Some of you make fun of that Rosetta Stone ad with a titillating side, but I've never even seen it on my stations. All I get is the one with the man who invented it (?), the one with the dignified white fringe of hair and beard. Nothing against him, but I've seen him a thousand frigging times, and I'm ready to see that other one (and not just for the obvious reason). So most of you may hate "Flo," but at least you get to hate her in a whole ad campaign, instead of ONE SINGLE AD.

i cant believe nobody mentioned that irritating noise she makes, something along the lines of "more like CEO!!!!!   BOOP BOOP! no glass ceiling!" also her failed attempts at jokes anger me to no end every time any one of these commercials come on.

Red lips make it used. Big, white, boxy, and uncomfortable, with bright red smudge and black hair stuck to it!!

In these commercials she looks like the picture they showed in the (Keaton) Batman movie of the Joker's first victim killed with "Smile-X". Without the makeup she's actually kind of cute, and I think she used to be on a tv show.

Plump? Fester my man, not every woman can look like Olive Oil! LOL
 
But I agree with the voice, it could get a little grating. Also, the voice over at the end- wtf? Smoke another pack of Marlboro Red's lady, jeeze.
 
I saw an online poll once to pick the cutest of two insurance chicks. "Flo" lost OVERWHELMINGLY to "Erin Surance" (E. Surance) but I can see why...
