Top 4 Things That Happens on Every Telenovela

1. Love Triangle 

In almost every telenovela, there is always a love triangle involved. A love triangle normally involves three people romantically linked, whether two guys are after one girl or the other way around. One example of a telenovela that involves a love triangle is Dos Mujeres, un Camino (Two women, one path).

Dos Mujeres, un Camino is a Mexican Telenovela produced by Televisa in 1993. The telenovela is about a truck driver named Jhonny who falls in love with a waitress while traveling and together they start a romantic relationship, but she does not know that he is a married man.

2. A poor girl gets rich 

Another typical plot that tends to happen in Telenovelas is that a poor girl ends up getting rich at the end of the story. This can either happen because she ends up marrying a rich guy or her parents are rich and she does not know it as she was taken away from home when she was just a baby. Either way, the girl always has a happy ending. One example of a telenovela where the girl becomes rich is Corazon Indomable (Wild at Heart).
