Wealthy Brothers And A Female Aviator On Board
26 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Aerobic April/The Wager/Story of the Century" is the seventh episode of the eighth season of The Love Boat.The actors and actresses appearing on it are Charo,Ben Murphy,Charles Siebert,Ralph Bellamy and Dorothy McGuire.

The Pacific Princess goes into another cruise with interesting passengers on board.First,we meet April Lopez,a female passenger.She happens to be a new aerobics instructor.Meanwhile,wealthy brothers try to make a bet that either one would fall in love during the cruise.The amount of money involved is $ 1 million.Finally,a male reporter is pursuing a female passenger to get a story.She happens to be Amelia Earhart,a female aviator.

We have a good set of interesting stories in this episode.The brothers trying to make a bet was surely a funny one.Also,the reporter who is trying to get a story about a female aviator proved to be interesting.
