This Is What You Feel When You Watch A Telenovela

Telenovelas are not for the faint of heart. There are 856,391 different emotions you feel when you watch these dramatic soap operas, and more than half of them will kill you. Latinos, man… we live for the drama. Here are some of the most common emotions you feel when you watch a telenovela. Brace yourself.

“This is sooo stupid… whatever.”

It always starts with disbelief. You convince yourself that the storyline is garbage and you won’t sit through another episode.

“What kind of idiot would believe this BS?”

You continue to fight yourself and question why you’re watching. “His mother is really his sister and his grandma, his real mother? Come on!”

“Oh crap! Sh*t just got real.”

And then it hits you: The telenovela world is your world now. You’re officially addicted. You change your social schedule because you can’t wait to see what happens next with your favorite, yet doomed couple, and the hated-but-very-good-looking villain.

“Can you believe her body? That b*tch.”

Then jealousy takes a hold of you. “How can this drop-dead gorgeous, incredibly hot girl be so miserable? I can’t stand her. That waist, those legs… Agh!”

“Girl! This turned out to be sooo hot very soon.”

Suddenly, things start to get HOT! “Wait a minute, weren’t they slapping each other a minute ago? Mmmm…who cares anymore? Show me more skin!”

“He can’t be dead!”

Then comes denial. You can’t believe the main character just got killed with a mariachi guitar. “How? Why?”

“What?! Her twin brother turned out to be her lover??”

Meanwhile, you know what you are watching is ridiculous… but you dig it. “So she had a twin who is gay and now is fondling her rebound guy? Ok, that makes sense.”

Denial strikes again. “How are they supposed to live happily ever after now?”

“I bet they end up together.”
