Gianna is attracted to Carlo but soon takes off after Carlo tries to make Gianna challenge the fear of flying by taking her on a seaplane ride. Gianna then meets Mario who is a seafood vendor who turns out to be self-indulgent and only cares for her mother.

He even makes remarks about Gianna being insensitive to her mother’s emotions and during a shooting game, he ends up in an argument with the stall owner which makes Gianna instantly leave. After these failed attempts, Didi who is Gianna’s flatmate and friend makes a dating profile and she matches with Davide who turns out to be only 19.

During all this, Gianna’s colleague at work, Doctor Umberto tries to ask Gianna out several times but fails to do so. He makes a heartfelt confession to her and that leaves Gianna surprised.

“I Hate Christmas” Ending: Who Does Gianna Bring Home?

After 24 days of the tedious journey to finding her a boyfriend, we do see that she has invited someone for Christmas but it is not revealed and she keeps it a mystery in the last Episode which leaves a good open plot for a second season.

However, if we look at it carefully, it could be Doctor Umberto because she did not reject him after his heartfelt confession to her. She works with him so she already knows him as well.

Another possibility could be the maintenance person who she turns out to be friends with because they did hit it off. Carlo and Gianna could be too since she left him because of her own fears and not something that Carlo did or behaved and in fact, she was quite attracted to him as well.
