Ugly Betty

Backseat Betty
Hilda’s bad-boy high school flame and Betty’s schoolgirl crush -- Bobby Talercio (Adam Rodriguez) -- teaches at Justin’s school, causing the sisters to both doubt their feelings for “nice guys” -- such as Archie (Ralph Macchio), in Hilda’s case. Justin is struggling to fit in at high school, so Marc advises him to befriend the mean girl-type cheerleaders, including Ava (Bonnie Dennison). Meanwhile Daniel introduces Amanda to the Community of the Phoenix, as he’s lured deeper into its clutches by Bennett (Dylan Baker) and Natalie (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), and Wilhemina takes a drastic step to find money for Nico’s blackmail payment.
