But...Betty is your average "geek". She has frizzy black hair w/ fuzzy bangs, bushy "never been plucked eyebrows", blue braces, and dorky glasses. Her fashion choices are very bright, over styled, and just plain tacky. While I believe America Ferrera is absolutely gorgeous, I cannot believe how ugly they make her look.
Betty is such an infectiously happy character that it's easy to get swept up in her life. she's just so darn likeable. I'll admit that I've wished more than once that she were real and my friend.
