Carmen isn't a main character because she isn't in the Latin House. Other characters of varying attractiveness also aren't datable for that very reason.
* DoingItForTheArt: Rakesh's main motivation for doing pretty much ''anything'' is that he thought it would make good art. He says that he follows nature's example: nature doesn't ask you if you like its flowers, or expect you to pay it anything in return; it merely blooms because it feels like it.

* HollywoodThin: All three of the girls in the Latin House have extremely slim waists, slim-to-moderately-curvy hips, and enormous breasts. Anne's classmate Carmen is clearly ''not'' a main character simply because [[HollywoodPudgy her waist is larger than a wasp's and she has round cheeks]].

** In one scene, Rakesh decides to cover himself in oil-based paint in order to use his chest as a paintbrush on his bedroom walls. Anne or Max points out that the paint might be toxic, and he immediately runs to take a shower. She or he attempts to help, but the paint is stuck. Anne looks online for a way to remove it and discovers(and Max already knows thanks to a family member) that ''mayonnaise'' might work. Neither of them thought anything of this until Isabella walks in and points out how kinky covering someone in mayonnaise is; Anne [[MistakenForGay or Max]] insists it is NotWhatItLooksLike and the shower immediately turns awkward.
