Amanda dated her "The Amanda Show" co-star Taran Killam for over a year beginning in March 2001. But once she made the move to prime time, she dumped Taran and, at 17, took up with her new "What I Like About You" co-star, Nick Zano, who was seven years her senior. They dated for about a year. In a 2005 interview, Amanda told CosmoGirl magazine, "I learned so much from both relationships. Both of them helped me to get to where I am today. The first one was there to sort of have a negative effect on me, and then my second one helped me get back to where I was." The rumor mill later linked Amanda to a series of co-stars including Channing Tatum, Matt Long, and even David Cross, but none of these relationships were ever confirmed.
