Latino and Latina contestants compete for a role on a Telemundo telenovela by completing challenges based on how well they can learn the basic fundamentals of the popular Spanish-language genre.
Our twelve contestants arrive at "La Casa de Locos" where they are greeted by co-host, telenovela leading man and crossover American star Carlos Ponce, and the "Diva de la Casa," Latin superstar Maria Conchita Alonso. Walter Mercado appears in a magic portrait to tell them they must master the Seven Deadly Sins of Telenovela. The first sin is Passion. The group learns how to fight telenovela-style. They pair off to shoot fight scenes complete with stage punches, slaps, drink throws, food fights and hair pulls. Janet wasn't so passionate in her scene and was placed in the duel. Roseny, on the other hand was the best and awarded with immunity, a free makeover and dinner with a famous Latina actress, Sofia Vergara. Janet must face off with the person that the contestants vote into "El Duelo". They vote in Jainmy who eventually is killed off in a telenovela death scene which means she is eliminated.
