Storyline

Yo Soy Bea is a Spanish series loosely based on the original Colombian telenovela Yo Soy Betty La Fea. In the Spanish version, the lead actress, Bea (short for Beatriz) is shy, homely, but very intelligent and sweet. Despite her homely and mousy looks, because of her brilliant resume, she is given a job as the secretary of the Director General of Bulevar 21, a trendy fashion magazine. She inevitably falls in love with her boss, Alvaro Aguilar, a very attractive, wealthy young man with two major flaws. His suave and charismatic personality and dashing good looks makes him irresistible to most women, and he will not hesitate to seduce them, in spite of having an official girlfriend, Cayetana, who is also the contents director at the magazine. Alvaro is also a compulsive liar, a mechanism he uses to escape from the numerous awkward situations he puts himself in. Alvaro's chief rival is Cayetana's brother, Diego. Diego persistently plots to have Alvaro removed as General Director of the ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Ruth Núñez defined the whole experience of the show as "exhausting", because she was leading a daily series and the network forbade her to attend public acts in order to keep the mystery of the show plot (the transformation from ugly to beautiful). See more »

One of the best

This Telenovela is TOTALLY amazing. The chemistry between Alvaro and Bea is incredible, thank god they're a real couple. Even though this Telenovela was really long, but I enjoyed every second of it, Alvaro is so handsome, I really really like him, as for Bea, even before she transforms to a beautiful lady, in my opinion she was beautiful. She has this thing that makes you like her a lot no matter what.

The plot is great, I like the story, it's kinda the same story as ugly Betty with a lot of development of course. I recommend everyone to watch it. It's really worth watching. I can watch it over and over again and never get bored. There 're a lot of great scenes that you'll enjoy, beautiful characters, great acting, good music, happy ending and a love story that turns to a real love story between the two lead actors, so the chemistry is real and it gave this telenovela sparks.

After Alvaro and Bea's wedding, the Telenovela wasn't over, 2 new lead actors came to the scene with a new story and a little bit different plot ....it wasn't as good as the first story but this new one was OK....so it's sort of 2 telenovelas in one.
