Wink Commercial Controversy! Progressive Insurance Lady Cheated with the Geico Cavemen!!!

With her dated-yet-hip look and suspicious enthusiasm for car insurance, the star of Progressive's TV commercials is an unlikely celebrity. But you're not alone in wondering: Just who is the Progressive Auto Insurance woman? Her real name is Stephanie Courtney.

The Geico connection: And don't forget about Flo's arch competitors: Geico's gecko and cavemen. Not to stir up conspiracy theories, but it turns out Stephanie is no stranger to the Geico cavemen...

Interestingly, in 2008, Courtney landed a small role in two episodes of ABC's Cavemen, a sitcom based on the much-maligned Neanderthals from the Geico commercials.

The title of this thread cracked me up. I was expecting to find a picture of their little insurable love child.

Cool

Think it's hard to get a date with Flo? Nah, It's so easy a caveman could do it!

Stephanie Courtney, sounds like a made up name to me. If it is her real name it's got to be the most made up sounding real name since Missy Gold.

Oh, and I'm so jealous of that caveman actor guy!

Seems to be a real name - not stage name at all. Altho she is married now to a guy named Scott Kolanch so she would be Stephanie Kolanch in real life if she opted to take her husband's name.

Actually Missy Gold is a stage name. Missy's real name is Melissa Fisher.

Missy Gold was born Melissa Fisher, but she took the name Gold legally when her stepfather, Harry Gold, adopted her and her sister Tracey.

Well I obviously have too much time on my hands because I decided to see just what the love child of Flo and the Geico Caveman would look like. I made this picture using an online baby-maker site. LOL!

That's horrifying. She (he?) has a goatee right outta the womb... that's gonna scratch like crazy on the way out.
