FLO THE PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE GIRL HAS MADE IT BIGTIME
It’s official: Flo, the Progressive Insurance girl, has become a celebrity. Stephanie Courtney, the actress who plays Flo in the commercials, will be gratified to hear that she has a “lookalike” who’s created a stir in front of Mann’s Chinese theater on Hollywood Blvd. The Flo double is the latest addition to the army of lookalikes – from Marilyn Monroe to Batman – who charge tourists $5 for a photo together. Flo, with her familiar headband and apron, reportedly has tourists squealing in recognition.
