90210's Justin Deeley Sizes Up Austin & Max's Feud Over Naomi: 'I Can't Lose To This Guy!'

The nerd and the cowboy finally come face to face tonight on ‘90210!’ Which guy should Naomi choose?

“Let The Games Begin” couldn’t be a more appropriate title for the Oct. 4 episode of 90210, because just as Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) prepares to dominate CU’s annual Greek Games, the men in her life — Austin (Justin Deeley) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) — will also be going head-to-head.

“Austin had no idea Naomi was involved with another guy,” Justin tells HollywoodLife.com. “Once he sees [Max], it becomes, ‘Well, I can’t lose to this guy.'”

Of course, Justin and Josh’s rivalry is anything but bitter off screen.

“[Josh is] tremendous,” Justin tells us. “He’s so terrific as an actor, and he’s so much fun to work with, and so talented. I learned a ton from him in just the short amount of time I got to work with him.”

So which guy do you have your fingers crossed for? To be honest, I’m kind of on Team Austin now — and it’s not (just) because Justin won me over with his Kentucky charm. I think he’s exactly the kind of challenge Naomi needs in a relationship.

“When Austin first met Naomi, he saw her as your typical spoiled Beverly Hills brat,” Justin says. “But as time goes on and their relationship develops, he doesn’t really know why, but there’s something about Naomi he just can’t stay away from.”

I wonder what Austin could possibly have trouble staying away from. Could it have something to do with the preview for tonight’s episode, in which he literally rips open Naomi’s dress after throwing her onto a table?

Just a hunch…
