    Default probably what?

    "Who's Andrea Immer?"
    "Wine guru I'm besotted with. Of course I've only met her on TV."
    "You and a million other wine geeks, probably," Jack jested.
    "When my book gets published I'll be able to afford the rare Burgundies to romance her."

    I don't understand what Jack meant by saying "You and a million other wine geeks, probably" . Probably what? It seems to me an incomplete sentence and I can't guess what Jack was trying to say?? Can anybody guess?

    It refers back to only meeting her on TV, where she'll doubtless meet loads of wine fans. The idea is that she's just one of many and not important to Andrea.
