Meet 'Ugly Betty'
 
This season's new it girl is Ugly Betty—a slightly pudgy fashion disaster!

Ugly Betty, airing Thursdays on ABC, follows Betty Suarez, who lands a job as the assistant to the editor-in-chief of ultra chic fashion magazine Mode. With red glasses and a mouthful of braces, Betty struggles in the often ugly world of beautiful people.

The show, based on a Colombian telenovela called Yo Soy Betty La Fea, is already a smash hit in seven other countries. Executive producer Salma Hayek says she couldn't wait to bring it to the United States!
