In the funny yet heartwarming episode "Beauty Queer," Iza plays the role of a consistent "thank you girl" or a losing contestant in beauty pageants who is determined to win a crown. She the resorts to joining a gay beauty contest but can she continue with her plan even if it means exchanging triumph for love? This comedic episode is directed by Dominic Zapata.
