Here Renaldo sees the ghost of the beauty contest in the teaser, while Andrés roasts him for buying his underwear at the supermarket. In another clip, Ursula (Cassandra Ciangherotti) finds herself involved in a political campaign with an acquaintance with some questionable campaign strategies.

Daddy’s characterAna Fabrega) is still suffocatingly awkward and hilarious. In one scene she is preparing gazpacho, her husband’s favorite food. Her culinary twist on the plate is intriguing, to say the least, as her version consists solely of tomato sauce.

The trailer highlights the absurd and endearing combination that had fans tuning into Season 1.
