Ugly Betty, the man magnet

by Jennifer Squires Biller

Betty Suarez is a man magnet. Seriously, the girl attracts more men than the Playboy mansion.

Last season, accountant Henry and sandwich-guy Gio were fighting over her. Then, she moved on to her musician neighbor for a fleeting moment, and now she’s landed a billionaire named Matt.

Betty is rocking the mojo.

What is it about Betty that men find irresistible? By today’s standards for beauty, she doesn’t fit the profile. In fact, she’s the exact opposite. She’s short and stocky, has braces, bushy eyebrows, and an unflattering hairstyle. She wears glasses, and her wardrobe is so mismatched, if I didn’t know better, I’d think Betty was colorblind.

Yet, she always seems to have a man seeking her attention. I have plenty of single girl friends who want to know Betty’s secret. Maybe it’s those red glasses. On second thought, the glasses didn’t work for Sally Jesse Raphael.

Perhaps it’s Betty’s perkiness or perpetual optimism that men find attractive. Maybe nice girls don’t finish last. (Someone should tell Amanda; the girl could use a date.)

At this rate, Daniel will be the next to fall for Betty. She clearly doesn’t know her own power. Oh wait, I think they already did that in the Spanish version of the show and it didn’t work well. I’m just saying, Daniel, beware. Betty Suarez is apparently more loveable than any of us ever imagined.

The secret to Betty's success with men is that she is a character on a TV show with a mostly female fan base. Most women wish that men would love them for their personality rather than their looks. Nothing wrong with a little escapism, of course. But in real life, most men would barely notice Betty exists--let alone fight over her.
