As soon as we all met Betty from the hit ABC show, we instantly fell in love. Her wit, intelligence, and work ethic gave us a character that we could all relate to. Ugly Betty isn’t really ugly, but she wasn’t the type girl that Daniel usually had working for him at Mode magazine. Daniel had a thing for beautiful women that would answer to his beck and call, but these women didn’t have the work ethic that made for a great assistant. As soon as Betty was hired to be Daniel’s new assistant, everything changed.
Betty, played by America Ferrera, worked hard, didn’t try to sleep with her boss, and showed us that you don’t have to be drop dead gorgeous to get ahead. Betty goes through some struggles during the four seasons Ugly Betty aired but proved she was a strong and successful woman that was perfect for her job. Since the show’s cancellation in 2010, Ugly Betty has gained a cult-like following.
