* CartwrightCurse: One surefire way to predict if a male character is going to die is judged by one question: Is he Bree's love interest? So far, the one--''one''--love interest she's had who ''didn't'' end up dead by the end of the affair is [[spoiler: Orson]] who ends up in a wheelchair for life by the end of the relationship. In comparison to the others, he got off lucky.

!!'''John Rowland (Jesse Metcalfe)'''

* AmbiguouslyBrown
* DawsonCasting: Metcalfe was 25 when he began playing the 17-year-old Rowland. Averted in later seasons when [[TimeSkip time skipped]] forward allowing John's age to catch up more with Metcalfe's real age.
* DoggedNiceGuy: He fell in love with Gabrielle, but she was mostly using him just for sex when Carlos was either not paying her enough attention or she was mad with him.
* HotMenAtWork: Was the Solis' gardener and often [[WalkingShirtlessScene did it shirtless]].
* JailBait: Gabrielle was threatened by John's Mother with legal action once their affair was exposed.
* LikesOlderWomen: It was said that high-school girls his age bored him. In addition to Gabrielle, he also had a brief fling with an even older woman on the street named Joan.
* LovableJock: He wasn't shown in his high-school setting much, but was shown to be a popular soccer player.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Partly causes [[spoiler:Carlos' send to prison]] hoping to get him out of the way and begin a real relationship with Gabrielle. She wasn't impressed, and this led to her patching things up with Carlos.
* PrettyBoy: Probably what allowed Metcalfe to get away (just) with playing a 17 year old.
* RagsToRiches: Between seasons 2 and 3 he goes from being a neighborhood gardener to starting a successful gardening business.
* [[spoiler:RomanticRunnerUp]]
* SexGod: Gabrielle was surprised when John revealed to her that she was his first, and later bragged about his prowess to Carlos.
* WhosYourDaddy: It was not known who was the father [[spoiler: of Gabrielle's later miscarried first child out of himself and Carlos]].
* YourCheatingHeart: In season 3, he was engaged to (and later married) a hotel heiress when he [[spoiler:slept with Gabrielle again.]]

* SelfServingMemory: She recalls her time as a model as being wonderful, much loved and she hated giving it up to marry Carlos. During a trip to New York, Gabby is thrown that some former model "friends" rip into her about how much they hated her. Her former agent then breaks it down that Gabby was an incredible diva whose demands were getting so bad that agencies were deciding not to use her because of the hassle. Gabby realizes that instead of "ruining" her career, marrying Carlos saved her from getting kicked out of the business.
