Telemundo’s “12 Corazones” has aired over a hundred episodes since its premiere in 2005. Most would agree each of those episodes were unlike anything else on TV. Check out some of the weirdest, most random and wtf themes they’ve aired in the past:

“12 Corazones” aired a vampire-themed episode.

And it hasn’t been confirmed whether the episode aired around Halloween.

To shake things up a bit, they incorporated Zumba into their 60 minute slot.

Now your mom can go back and watch this episode if she’s ever in need of a workout video.

And with a little inspiration from Disney, “12 Corazones” also aired a princesses-themed show. ✨

Yes, they even had a script and acted out different scenes from princess stories.

Couples costumes became a reoccurring theme as was the case for this episode of policías y ladrones.

They didn’t joke around with these cop and thief costumes.

…and an episode of pilots and flight attendants.

They even included a game about which pilot could carry the most luggage.

Of course, they had to include an episode with the dynamic duo of doctors and nurses.

Who knew doctors and nurses could be so sexy… or awkward.

It then turned into a full-on talent show when they brought in breakdancers.

This girl should’ve gone to “America’s Best Dance Crew” instead.

To spice things up, they tossed in a few strippers from time to time.

For some reason, all of the ladies especially loved this episode.

But it really got wild when they invited Tarzan to the show.

All they were missing were a couple gorillas and elephants.

To try to keep the show nice and cozy, “12 Corazones” allowed guests to show up in their pjs.

And their pajamas were on FLEEK. Sleeker than Hugh Hefner in red silk.

Things got a bit nostalgic when quinceañeras arrived to the set in limos.

Yes, they arrived in stretch LIMOS.

They even had a valz instructor come onto the show:

And they danced to “Tiempo del Valz” of course.

But there wasn’t a more random theme than the one they included in this episode: “Incomodos de ver” (guys that are awkward to look at).

They must have been running out of ideas for different themes at this point…

If I Lived In One Of These 12 Mexican Towns With Strange Names I’d Move Immediately

Sometimes, it’s fun to take advantage of someone else’s inability to speak Spanish. It is a romance language after all. So when my mom would tell her white friends, “de nalga” instead of “de nada,” nobody noticed except us.

If you’re from any of these towns, we bet your non-Latino friends just nod and say, “Nice!” But we all know you’re from the land of the boogers. Here are the weirdest places in Mexico to say you’re from.

1. Villa Mocos

@MiPetitMadrid / Twitter

Everyone loves to talk about Villa Mocos, but it’s a myth! Maybe our moms were playing pranks on the gabachos, and it’s infiltrated our impressionable young minds. Don’t believe anyone who tells you they’re from Villa Mocos.

2. Las Nalga de Ventura, Guanajuato

@tioironhomie / Twitter

The full name is Rancho de Guadalupe (La Nalga de Ventura) which directly translates to Guadalupe’s Ranch (Fortune’s Butt). There are only 217 inhabitants that can say they’re from Ventura’s Butt.

3. Salsipuedes, Baja California

@ViewDownHere / Twitter

Pero, really, “leave if you can”. Apparently, the secluded beaches you might choose to relax on in Salsipuedes are often interrupted by major wave breaks. Surfers love to go and enjoy it y salsipuede.

4. Delicias, Chihuahua

@PaseaPerrosCom / Twitter

Literally translated to “Delights, Mexico,” this is what we’d expect to see. The city is the fourth most populated in the state of Chihuahua and is actually a major agricultural center. 

5. Comitán, Chiapas

@josielynn__v

Waiting for your friends or S.O. to commit already? Buy them a one way ticket to Comitán, which is translated to “Commit!” 

6. Ojo de Agua, Tecámac

@BricRealEstate / Twitter

How can you visualize el ojo de aqua? Through the eye of Mother Nature, it might be a spring. There’s no confirmation on how the town got its name, but it’s as good a hunch as any.

7. Aguascalientes, Mexico

@muratnebiayhan / Twitter

This state of Mexico directly translates to “Hot Waters.” It’s not because everyone is feeling like this frog, but because there are so many hot springs in the area. Still–“Hi, I’m from Hot Waters,” feels like a silly thing to say in English, and beautiful in Spanish.

8. Pachuca, Mexico

@Love99270707 / Twitter

There is no official consensus on how the coastal town got its name. It might have originated from the word pachoa, which means strait; pachoacan which means place of silver and gold; or patlachuican which means place of tears.

9. Paso del Macho, Veracruz

@luismartinulloa / Twitter

Directly translated to “Male’s Path,” apparently this municipality was named after the treacherous journey to enter the area. You needed mules or dudes to carry the load.

10. La Barca, Jalisco

@wfp_mozambique / Twitter

Originally named Santa Mónica de la Barca, it eventually just became known as La Barca. That’s like if your home town’s name was “The Boat.” This one is less weird than it is just straight unimaginative.

11. Cortazar, Guanajuato

@superpetmate1 / Twitter

Home of the best hair dressers in the world, Cortazar… okay just kidding. It was first known as San José de los Amoles, but for some reason, it became known as Cortazar, which means ‘to cut.’

12. Chihuahua, Mexico

@LunaPrincess / Twitter

Probably the most annoying place to be from if you’ve moved anywhere else in the world is Chihuahua, Mexico. To the rest of the world, it translates to “Tiny Dog, Mexico.”

At least nobody can be from Isla del Malpelo, Colombia.

@tiktokgrassi / Twitter

It’s just a deserted island that could only be used for climbing it’s barren rock and jumping into the ocean. It also promises for a bad hair day. Badhair Island is a favorite for scuba divers and scientists but that’s about it.

A Young Latino Confronted His Mom For Liking His Ex’s Post And She Clearly Doesn’t Care

@MamonNalgon / Twitter

There is something about your parents staying friends with your ex that drives people crazy. Like, they also made connections with those people and they might really like them. However, should they take your side and just cut them off? That is the debate raging right now after on Twitter user confronted his mom about liking one of his ex’s Instagram photos.

Here is the moment Alan Zamora confronted his mother about liking his ex’s photo on social media.

He confronted him mother with a, “WTF?!” She responded simply with, “Terminó contigo, pero no conmigo.” She added: “She’s my friend.” Now, that is just some cold honesty about the importance of making sure your parents don’t get too attached to your novios and novias.

Her insistence on being friends with his ex led him to ask for new moms.

Who wants to give this man the mom he clearly wants. Obviously, he is looking for fierce loyalty and a mother who will never side with his ex over him. Also must be able to be filmed for Twitter at a moment’s notice.

She even invited his ex over to hang out and we are all dead.

Credit: @MamonNalgon / Twitter

Honestly, we all love when our ex’s parents want to stay in touch with us. They clearly love what we have to offer to the world. However, have you ever been on the other side of this? Have you ever seen your parents try to hangout with your exes while liking their social media pics?

Some people saw this and thanked the universe that their parents can’t do the same thing.

Credit: @Josewaterboy12 / Twitter

Pro tip: Make your parents social media illiterate. If they don’t know how to do social media, they can’t break your heart like this. Imagine your mom having an entire Instagram just to stay connected with the exes she liked from your life.

Some moms came through to explain what is happening from her perspective.

Credit: @lfgonzales / Twitter

It is kind of unfair for us to ask our parents to just cut someone out of their lives just because we couldn’t make it work. should they put their lives and hearts on pause just because our lives fell apart? It is a question that some moms legit want us to answer.

There were a few examples of parents taking it too far.

Credit: @cachacci / Twitter

Like, who does this? How does your mom take a trip with one of your exes then send you photos of the trip? This is the ultimate betrayal. There you are just living life wanting to take a trip with your mom then she takes the one who got away. Shady.

Or how about coming home and seeing your ex straight chilling with your folks?

Suddenly, your safe space is gone. You can’t come home and just relax because suddenly you have an ex hanging out on the couch. What a disaster. What a life they must live to do this to their pride and joy.

Yet, some people think that it is actually a sweet reminder of how much your life impacts your parents.

Credit: @GuevaraAshlee / Twitter

Try not to cry thinking about how much you mean to your parents. They love you so much that they love everyone you love. That is true unconditional love. What a wonderful thing to think about.

Oh, and Zamora wants you to know that his mom is one of the most beautiful women despite the original video.

What a great son. Even when he is betrayed by his mother, he still supports her unconditionally.
